Great food in a nice casual atmosphere
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.
Great night, Jazz was fun, food and drinks were great.
We enjoy the food every time we have been there. They are very fast and the prices are reasonable.
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.
Only Place open late on Island. Great music always. Just in need of some extra help. Food and drinks great. Wine had some surprises.
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.
32nd wedding anniversary last night @ Old Captiva Anthony & Chef Greg made table visit Tonight - Friday was Crows Nest & Brenda E was fabulous!
Great spot on Captiva and really good food. Been here a few times and will return.
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!
Very enjoyable. Strict safety standards followed.
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.
Great live music. The couple plays a little bit of everything. They are great!!
Food was amazing! The seared grouper was the best I’ve ever had!!
Amazing service and the crab cakes were delicious!
Although temperature was taken at door the wearing of masks was not enforced.
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.
The drag queen BINGO made the evening 😉
A must to try ! Great service and great food as well. Great value as well.
A warm cheery greeting from the hostess is always a good thing. Service was excellent. Seafood was fresh. Nice casual atmosphere with the prettiest sunset you could ever experience. We had a nice evening. Thank you.
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.
Very good food and drinks. Staff is very friendly. They are social distancing with the tables and all staff were wearing protective mask and gloves. We went there twice on our vacation.
The food was amazing and the Drag Queen Bingo was fun and entertaining. My husband even won a bingo!!
The shrimp and grits were fantastic. They were setting up for game night and the music was loud.
Great seafood and a lovely sunset view. Good special drinks. Great service. World-class jeu line pie! I had a south Florida boil, shrimp, mussels, fish, corn, potatoes, sausage and a fabulous broth.
Cocktails, appetizers and all meals were very good. The fish tacos and coconut shrimp were exceptional. Prices are very reasonable. Our server was not very engaging or attentive. Crab races are a hoot! We’d go back.
Great service! Very good food
Food was good but service sucked

We had a very nice meal. Our server was great. We enjoyed the entertainment. Would definitely recommend it.
We enjoyed the view, our server, ranelle, if I recall correctly, was very attentive, the food was excellent, the food arrived in a timely manner and was hot and the size of serving was very generous. Thanx for an awesome experience
Fish was great. Service was attentive. We nursed our food and wine till a live band started at 8:30, then we got to dance for a hour before going home. Altogether a fun night, worth every cent we spent.
Crab races were entertaining!
Very good food and service. Fun music and dancing
Super Bowl Party
The chef is excellent at creating well balanced spice and flavor to his soup and pasta entree
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 .
Looking forward to our next time
Great restuarant in terrific location. Food was very good, service was great, entertainment was very good.
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.
