We dined there in a group of 12. Place was cold as the breeze came in when guests opened and closed the entrance door, and they left two patio doors open and created a wild tunnel effect. Freezing cold. All customers were wearing heavy jackets. We ordered white fish dinner. Very poorly prepared. Charged each of us $1.50 for a... More

Don't order fish dishes. We went as a group of 12 and most of us ordered the white fish dish which was supposed to be seared bad pan fried. They came out tasteless, overlooked and dry. Moreover, some of us asked for hot/ warm water , resulting to being charged an additional $1:20 per person.

Stopped in for lunch and we both had wraps. Quick friendly service with good size portions. Would not hesitate to visit again.

We have been to the Crows Nest many times, before the fire and after. Always great service, I think the food has improved since the fire happened - though it was always good. My husband recently discovered he had a wheat allergy and the staff was more than helpful at making sure his meal was just as good, if not... More

There were a number of items to choose from on the menu. Some items seemed to be a little pricey. We shared a fish and chips dinner... More

We visited here late on a Wednesday evening after arriving in town. It was later in the evening so we weren't sure what to expect for food quality but we were pleasantly surprised. They have options for gluten free and vegan, which was handy for my friend on a restricted diet. They even had a separate menu highlighting gluten free... More
