I have vacationed I the Sarasota area for many years. Discovered the Crow's Nest while staying in Venice Beach. We eat there at least once and sometimes twice each time we're here. Great food and service. Reservations are a must. Large seafood selection and the filet mignon is delicious.

“On the water and gorgeous sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Be sure to make reservations or you will have a long wait! We also asked to be seated near a window and the view was fantastic as the sun was setting. We found the food outstanding and there were four of us who all ordered a different dish. The service was excellent and the waiter was attentive even though the restaurant was packed. We loved the ambiance! After dinner it was enjoyable to just walk around the marina. It made for a very enjoyable evening and we will be sure to return.

“Good Food, Great Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Took our neighbor for her birthday. We all enjoyed our dinner especially the grouper. Restaurant was especially busy so we had a hard time hearing one another. But, we still enjoyed it especially when our waiter surprised the birthdayv girl with a piece of key lime pie for her birthday.

“Great Marina Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

Very good food, good service and a great view. Yes, it is a little loud, BUT it is a marina place. We saw many boats glide by- some were 20 ft runabouts, some were 40 ft sailboats and 1 was a 135 ft (est.) private yacht- all were less than 100 yrds from the dock. Would certainly go back for lunch the next time we are in Venice, FL
