We made the drive for the view of the sunset and it did not disappoint. The food however was just ok, the salad was good but the pizzas we have we're salty and kind of gross. The desert were good! But the stroll across the road to see the dolphins and the sunset was priceless.

We ate and drank here 3 separate times on our honeymoon. The food was delicious and the drinks were perfect. Everyone from the hostess to the wait staff and bartenders were incredible and made us feel right at home. The crab races were also a blast and a must see! Highly recommended you try this place, you will not be disappointed at all!

We dined at the Crow's Nest a few times during our stay. The food was wonderful. The only exception was the buffet during the Crab Races.

We also had Mike as our waiter, he saved this dining experience. Our apps were yummy the Thai shrimp and seared Tuna had me hopeful after a very disappointing week of food in the Sanibel- Captiva area. Our Entrees however were a big let down. I had the Shrimp and grits with Chorizo (Ground Chorizo that tasted and resembled ground beef) this missed the mark for me. my husband had fish with Shrimp Scampi over the top....the bright yellow scampi sauce was a dead give away of coming out of a can or some sort of powder mix. It is scampi sauce for god sake! Butter, garlic a little white whine salt and pepper......why would you need a shortcut of some package scampi sauce....Our waiter Mike was great and when he knew my cocktail was not prepared properly he made sure he took it back and had it done right. He truly wanted us to enjoy our dining experience but unfortunately he could not make up for the lackluster entrees. I will say that because of the service I will give them a 2nd chance and go back when we visit again and hopefully pick better entrees.
