Today is 3-13-14 WE have been "Snow-Bird" regulars since 1974. What can we say but this IS THE PLACE to enjoy a dinner or lunch in the the downstairs or up stairs .... Make sure you make a reservation for a table by the Fantastic windows UPSTAIRS but anywhere you sit you will receive service and a great meal and drinks.We do miss bob our favorite bartender but overall
it's still the best for the $$$

The deck is very small so outdoor dining is unlikely. However, indoors the view of the water is phenomenal. You can watercraft ranging from yachts to kayaks. It's a great break. Food was great but not the main attraction for us!

We had lunch here on a Sunday. The place was packed and parking was a challenge. Reservations are important if you want a great table and view. The wait staff was extremely pleasant but was spread a bit thin and it took a while to be served. The quality of the food was just average. The ambience and view were awesome. We have eaten here previously and the food was very good so maybe it was just an off day.

We moved to Venice a few months ago and had heard about THE CROWS NEST. Everything good! We chose to have my birthday dinner there, and we're not disappointed! Excellent service, great food, in a beautiful setting. I am not one for "fan faire"..So, when my daughter told our server it was my birthday..she could tell I was not the one who wanted a "SING ALONG". She smiled and said nothing..but at the end of the dinner graciously brought out a piece of Key Lime Pie...with a candle...winked, and said HAPPY BIRTHDAY! A perfect ending to a great experience. We will not wait for another special event to return...but most assuredly ALL of mine will be spent there!

Went to the Crow's Nest for dinner with two other couples. Food was delicious. Only problem is we had to wait for a table for 45 minutes even with reservations, Veal Oscar was the best I ever had, I will go back soon,
