    Dear Parmela, Thank you for the great review for The Crows Nest! We are glad you were able to make it in one last time before we close for the Crows Nest Reimagination. When we reopen at the end of the year, we ready to entertain again! Until then, you can find some of your Crows Nest favorites available on a limited menu at our pool bar. You'll find a couple new treats too. Come back and see us again soon! F&B Management

    Hard to park, waiter refused to clear empty dishes and glasses because he, “ has a busser, who takes my money,” and there was live music which was so loud my family and I could feel the vibration of it through our table. Conversation was impossible. The food was tasty but the atmosphere and overall experience was miserable.

    We had the Salmon chef special. We paid $20 for this and the salmon was nothing special. It tasted like a frozen Mrs Paul’s breaded Salmon. Tween Waters is a lovely place but we were so disappointed in the food. Our service was a young girl who was the only good experience that we had

    The food and service was fabulous!! However… it was drag Queen bing. We were 7 families having dinner and as we were waiting for our food. Two of the the reformers approached our tables and used profanity to our children!! We ll found this inappropriate!!! We understand that the drag bingo was happening however, the 2 people that spoke to us and our children was unexpectedly!!! Beyond rude and extremely inappropriate!! We are canceling our reservations for 22 people for later this week.

    The night we went (on a Monday) we thought we were going to hermetic crab races but instead was a two hour drag queen bingo. It was a fun night but was very noisy. Don’t bring young kids .

    I think they are just really short staffed. We were seated right away for our reservation but then no one checked on us for another 20 minutes. Not even a water or anything. Seems like a nice place.

    Great service. Maggie was so friendly and was on top of everything. Food was ok. Definitely could use updating. Pretty dark and dingy inside. Beautiful view across the street not sure why they don’t take advantage of that.

    We always enjoy our visits to the Crows Nest. The food is good and consistent and the services is friendly and welcoming. On our most recent visit, Maggie, our server, was extremely pleasant and very attentive. The salsa mac n cheese appetizer is always a must for us.

    While the service was friendly, it was painfully slow. Took about 30 minutes to get drinks to the table, and 45 for appetizer to show up. The water was undrinkable, and the steak in the nachos was uneatable. Sadly, will not return.

    Really fun, casual place with ‘not too loud’ live music which we really enjoyed! We watched the sunset on the beach across the street and then had a good meal, what more to want! Malbec was solid. We had shrimp & grits, the burger, the seafood boils, and the Mahi-mahi BLT, all were delicious!

    Disappointing. They were out of several draft beers and wines French fries are pre coated with unnecessary seasoning that kill the taste of the potatoes. Parking is almost impossible under normal conditions but with a wedding ceremony being performed it was worse than ever. Our waitress was nice and did a good job. Coconut shrimp entree, the burger and the salads were good. The wine that was available was overpriced. Great view of the Gulf and sunset. We’ve been going to this restaurant since 2015. We won’t be going back.
