We went to Crow’s Nest to watch the crab races (listed as entertainment on website for Monday and Thursday nights). Hostess said “oh we haven’t done that in forever!” Then why is it STILL listed on the website?? Chocolate martini was $12.50 and tasted like chocolate milk. Two odd dudes walking around telling jokes and dancing was quite odd. P.S. the band was good.

Service was very good, quick and helpful but food and drinks were weak. It lacked flavor and connection to the area. Its not a memorable experience, only a place to get fed.

My only problem was that staff only told certain people they could not dance. We had masks on and were not quite 6 feet apart. The rules should be the same for all guests and should have been stated prior to the show!

However, the food and show were awesome and we told others at our resort about the restaurant and entertainment.

Great table service! Good was hot and quickly prepared. Menu selections upper end with a bit too much emphasis on sauces or accompaniments. Fried shrimp lack luster flavor, shrimp salad was great, bbq ribs were good, black and blue burgers need more pizzaz with blue cheese.

Nice view of the sunset. Entertaining live music. The food was 'just OK', and that seems odd given the time of year (low season, COVID-19). I guess we expected more of an effort to please, under the circumstances. Our server was delightful, very friendly.

We recently visited Sanibel/Captiva Island and decided to try Crow's Nest for my Birthday dinner. The food was simply delicious and well presented and the sizes were good. Due to covid the seating was wide spread which is great and the ambiance was good. The drinks we got were also very well made and our server was very courteous. I recommend this place!

I am giving this very high rating based on one dish. — the crows nest shrimp! I have had a lot of shrimp in my day, but these are absolutely spectacular. I only wish they served them by the bucket. We had a smattering of other appetizers as well, but I would go back for this shrimp dish over and over. Absolutely worth a visit.

A must visit while on or off Captiva Island. We ate out twice before we went to the Crows nest and believe me the Crows Nest was by far the best over the two 5 Star restaurants. We ended up eating dinner at the Crows Nest the next 3 days. Fried Grouper sandwich was GREAT!

Great Service, Great Food

Thanks to everyone at Tween Waters and the Crows Nest!

We took a group of 12 (9 teens) here for dinner. Face masks were required for entry. We didn’t have ours since we were coming to eat. The restaurant provided masks for everyone and took temperatures before being seated.
The service was quick and the staff friendly. While we were eating the live music started which was enjoyable and not too loud. Everyone liked their food. Some of the prices were a little high, but overall it was a great experience. We will go back.

Great place in Captiva. Classy, yet not stuffy. Food tasted great and portions were large. Nice view of Gulf as well. COVID: Our temperatures were taken when we came in and we were seated well beyond the recommended six feet of the next group.

Considering this is a bar and grills atmosphere his food makes it a real joy to eat at. The only regret my wife had was the choice of wine but them again it is a bar .

Never even were seated. There were no tables available when the two of us arrived at our reservation time. Although the back of the restaurant was closed off from the main dining area and totally empty, we were shown to an empty table for 8 in that section. The whole experience was off-putting. The main dining room was full of loud, noisy people screaming at one another around the bar.

We were happy to visit the Crow’s Nest for the first time. The ambiance was lacking especially next door to the beautiful Captiva House restaurant, but the food was really good. Our Server, I believe her name was Mina, did a wonderful job! I, unfortunately, left my credit card case with 3 credit cards in it. I didn’t realize my mistake until the next day. Thankfully, my case was turned in and the Manager had it locked in a safe. I am so appreciative of the care given my cards and that they were returned to me. For this kindness, I give this restaurant my high praise. Thank you!
