“Nice location on the water.”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

And the food was quite good. Thought the tuna ceviche was a bit overpowered by the soy and ginger. Thought the mango salsa on the blackened mahi mahi sandwich was a great touch, tho you would be hard put to pick it up as a sandwich- sloppy but really good. Our server was attentive and pleasant. The beer was cold. I would return.

“Eat on the Deck”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

It's lovely to eat on the deck over the water. They provide shade. Food is good but not special. Service is good.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

The food was delicious! We had the crab cake and homemade potato chips for appetizers and both were mouth watering! For dinner, I had the serloin steak, which was thick, juicy, tender and cooked to perfection. It was even delicious reheated the next day for lunch! The staff was wonderful and the atmosphere was very cozy. The desert menu was a little on the pricy side but all in all, it was a great dinner and I am very much looking foward to going back.

“not so great”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Kinda nice outside, nothing to write home about. Food was just mediocre. We had heard it was in a great spot on Seneca Lake. REality has it, that it is and the end of a marina on the park and it's view is nice, but not spectatular. Our service was lacking. The food was just OK. Nothing to go back for. BUT there is wonderful little Tiki bar (not part of Crow's Nest) just down the parking lot outside the marina sales office. Now, they have a better view and great service. Just drinks and bar food, but such a fun little place. Skip Crow's Nest and have a drink at the Tiki Bar.

“Crow's Nest Restaurant, Finger Lakes, NY”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

The Crow's Nest is under new ownership in the last couple of years. The service is efficient and exceedingly friendly. The food is of good quality and servings generally of good size and reasonably priced. The menu isn't extensive and comprises standard pub fare. Generally quite good is the oriental tuna salad adorned with generous slices of sushi grade tuna. The fish fry sandwich is large and is served with the usual sides i.e. fries, slaw. Having been several times, what was unexpected was $6.95 charge for a very poor quality tiny sliver that was a rip-off. Forget deserts, they're a waste of money. .
