Great casual dining venue. Waitress was attentive, food came out before expected, hot and delicious. Price is moderate, about right for Captiva Island. Staff was friendly. A band came in and set up while we ate and we got to enjoy a few tunes before we left. Restaurant is spacious and has a lovely view of the gulf. We watched the sunset from our window table. Fun dinner out for friends or family.

We loved seeing the Gatlins perform their music; they are true entertainers and sing a mean Lady Gaga Bradley Cooper duet! Wow. Don’t miss them if you can get to a show. Wonderful shrimp and grits here and the service was excellent. We would come back in the same week!

It was like a nice diner type of ambience. We would have left if it wasn’t for our kids being so hungry. Overall just not a well run place. Very unorganized. Our waiter, Ty was pleasant enough, but he was overwhelmed and kept making mistakes. The food was pretty awful for the price. This place needs a makeover by someone who knows what they are doing.

I’ve had The sushi 2 nights in a row both times very good. The night was a bit crazy because it was Crab Racing Night and we were there at 6 pm. We got the last 2 seats at the bar and despite the huge crowd we were served quickly. Fun night.

Best thing was that they take reservations. Great if you have kids. Fireplace made a rainy night very cozy. Food was good but not extraordinary.

Food was good and margaritas were super yummy. Note the adult crab racing requires you to be 18 or older although not stated anywhere - I assumed my high school kids would be fine as heck they listen to rap music so how “adult” could this be - but they were basically kicked out once racing started. Turns out there wasn’t anything offensive except the rudeness of the guy running the crab races. It was entertaining but not sure I’d go back for the crab race unless I was totally bored. Food and drinks were good and well priced for captiva.

We seem to always have a great time. The employees are so nice especially your hostess . Good food we enjoy that we can get a round table when you have a bigger group it’s nice we can all talk together. Like that you take reservations. Parking can be challenging.

Recommend for sunset. Prices were steeper than in the past. Disappointed with no Happy Hour. Parking difficult and a deterrent for return. Will go further into Csptiva.

Lovely location. Walked across the road to the beach. The sun was setting and only a couple of other people on the beach. Quiet and peaceful. Walked around the property to the bay side. The whole area was beautiful.

It was a rather sleepyb place for a Saturday night especially when they had live music. Would’ve given service five stars since Moni was so great but The busing staff mistakenly threw away my ribeye steak which I asked to be doggy bag. By the way it was delicious, but I would tecommend the sauce be on the side, and large portions which is why I only ate half.

My husband and Mother had rib eyes (both said were excellent). I had the broiled seafood platter - all were great, but the asparagus was overcooked. Disappointed that on the reservation it was marked as a Birthday dinner and nothing was mentioned by anyone. Service was great.

Crow’s Nest was a great choice since we stayed the night at Tween Waters. Very convenient, walking to the restaurant from our room.
Food was excellent! We both split a salad, followed by the seafood boil, which was incredible!
The drinks were also very good, a large pour!
Would highly recommend!

Went there because we have passed this place for years and decided to try. . The place is a bar and I’m sure it’s a fun place to drink but food not so good. We started out with fried grouper bits. They were drenched in oil and tasted like oil. Menu was very limited due to construction in their other restaurant. We ordered burgers. They were good for what I believe was a previously frozen pre made patty. The hostess was very friendly and nice. I wouldn’t eat there again.

This place should have told us that we were reserving a table for adult potty mouth night. We were there with our kids for dinner on crab racing night and the MC was using f-bombs and other cuss words while we ate dinner for my husband's birthday. Very inappropriate. If we had been advised of this we would have gone elsewhere. Food and services was good though.
