“A Comfortable Mom & Pop Spot”
Reviewed July 1, 2009

I moved to Amherst about a year ago and have been a regular at Mels Crows Nest since the first day I went there. Im not a big fan of the chain restaurants and I knew from the outside that its been around for a while...its a throw-back type of establishment in which many people cant find anymore and would be interested in finding. Its a diamond in the rough ! The bar staff, wait staff and management are all welcoming, friendly and its very relaxing and comfortable. When I tell people back in the southtowns about it they too wanted to experience it and all agree that they much rather go to a Mels Crows Nest because of the good price...good food...good drink kind of place that it is, than pay top dollar for all the bells and whistles that others have to give for the higher price you pay. During the Buffalo Bills games the regulars bring a dish and share a dish and how many places will let you do that? Its a nice touch during the football season. They have a fishing club and horseshoe club with the pits in the back. All I can say is "try it ...you'll like it!"

All iI can say is that fish dinner is worth the wait. Also the tues. night dinner specials are fabulous, all homemade just like Grandma used to make. the atmosphere is dull but the people are friendly.
