good food for a bar. sit at the bar, it's more convivial. No view from this place is the only downside. We met people from all over the country and many who come back year after year. Reasonably priced for Captive, which tends to be expensive.

After trying to find parking at the Mucky Duck we gave up and found this place not too far away. It was a great spot. Not only was it not crazy busy with sunset watchers like Mucky Duck, but we were able to get a drink at the bar, go across the street to the beach and watch the sunset... More

Wow is all I have to say about the Crow's nest. The staff remembered us from our trip last year, the seared Tuna is out of this world good. Drinks are super delicious and the live music was very entertaining. And you can watch some of the most amazingly beautiful sunsets right from the bar.

Dinner was good, typical bar food, but the Crab races were so much fun! To pick a crab for the races you pay $5, name your crab and they write down its name and #. After the races are over 1/2 the money is paid to the first few places and the rest of the money goes to United Way.... More
