The Crow's Nest had been closed due to reno so perhaps that accounts for the long wait. We were there on a Saturday morning at 8:45ish. When you arrive just wait in line on the stairs and a staff member will come around to take your name. The place was packed so we waited about 40 mins for a table.... More

I've been to Crow's nest a couple of times now and both times I found it to be pretty good, it's a little pricy but the food is good... however the service was meh at best both times though... I do enjoy the atmosphere especially if you can get a table by the Windows... (It sounds funny but the restaurant... More

Ate here for both dinner and breakfast on our recent trip to Kalamazoo. We were looking for a restaurant with some vegan choices and this fit the bill. Loved their black bean burger. (massive) Pleasant and knowledgable wait staff. Just need smoothies with real fruit.

I've always said it's hard to mess up breakfast. This place did the exact opposite. There was a line up the stairs, so we decided not to stay when people in line told us it was well worth the wait. Boy am I glad they did. It was the best breakfast food I have ever experienced. The staff was very... More

We arrived around 10:00, I had black and blue chicken sandwich with cup of soup, BF had Reuben with salad. Reuben was decent but bread was on the very crunchy side. Chicken sandwich was ahh-mazing! So much flavor and a good amount of meat too. Will head back again to try their breakfast sometime.

Today we decided to take our order to go, I know it was gonna take time so no complains after the 22 minutes to take the order and the 27 to get it, was it's really disappointing and frustrating is getting a different order even you ask for the same item, it seems that when you are eating on site...

I came here spontaneously when I was tired of the same-old stuff. I desperately wanted breakfast for dinner (you know, to stick it to the man) and Crow's Next did NOT disappoint. I highly recommend Crow's Nest to anyone with tastebuds and an empty stomach. Or to anyone without tastebuds and a full stomach. Anybody, really. Once you're done with... More

We go for brunch after church. Always end up standing on stairs for 30 minutes or so, but once seated service is quick. Always in and out in 60 - 75 minutes including wait time.

I use to come here before it started having a line all the way to the street. It was amazing then and it is amazing now. The wait is worth it! The only negative is that the one server seemed a bit annoyed with my friend who wanted to modify one of her meals (religious reasons). Every person I have... More
