Party of 9 with reservations made the experience smooth and easy. Great suggestions from server Andrea, and we were met with humor and a personal touch throughout. Specials were the stars of the meal, especially a Caribbean redfish with mango chutney. A quality experience in...what could have been a tourist-trap scenario.More

It’s been years since we went to the Crow’s Nest in Venice, Florida but we will return soon, especially for their early bird special which includes several entrée choices and two sides for $21. Our appetizer was an excellent tomato caprese salad. We shared the...Key Largo Grouper, which is grouper, sea scallops, shrimp, lobster claws and mushrooms. It was more than we could finish… We saved room for the fantastic creme brûlée Antonio, our server, was very helpful and efficient, we will ask for him againMore

We ate downstairs in the bar area. We did not get to see what upstairs looked like but a lot of people around us had reservations for upstairs so next time I think I'll do the same. We had potato skins, seafood bisque and grouper...fingers. Everything was good, including the service. I would go back again when in the area.More

We did hear good things about that restaurant, that food is fantastic, always fresh etc. Well, it is not. We went there for lunch. My “ Famous fish sandwich” was not good, fish was ok but the bun was stale. We also tried flatbread which...was very underwhelming as well. Our server was annoyed when asked to replace glass of white wine dirty with some “ mystery floaters” I’m glad we did not make dinner reservations…More
