Drinks were ok. Waiter was obnoxious and was. It in the least bit attentive. French dip was not as good as usual and we had to search to get service for anything.

If you are in the mood for seafood, try Crow's Nest, where the fish is always fresh and delicious. And even if you want meat or something else, you will not get disappointed. Good service and there is plenty of parking.

We have been many times and always find the food very good with large portions. Great fish always tho on our last visit, I found the fish in the fish and chips to be completely without flavor. That was the only time I have been disappointed in a meal. The place is casual and child friendly.

We eat there about once a month. Food was OK as usual. Nothing to write home about, and is usually a good place for burgers and a beer. Service is usually mediocre; again nothing to write home about. The service this time was worse than normal. The female waitress, who has been there for ages, takes the check back with... More

A group of us went to the Crows Nest for lunch for our annual holiday party and I was a little disappointed with the food. Not that the food was bad but most of the table's food arrived cold or over-cooked to the table as if it had been sitting under a heat lamp for a period of time. I... More

I went there for lunch with a friend and was given a large comfortable booth and was able to spend a leisurely afternoon enjoying the fare. We requested Hugo to wait on us because he treats us like royalty. I had the lobster and avocado salad, which was fresh, plentiful and delicious. My friend had the seafood salad but didn't... More

We went out for a German Octoberfest special. Not hard to find with plenty of parking. The place was all dressed up for the coming Halloween. Its a big place. The menu is too big, offering too many choices telling me there is no focus. We each chose something different. I chose the veal schnitzel. The other choice we tried... More

Very casual place with some fine dishes. Good for hanging out to watch sports or to just chill at the bar. Also, good for family dinners. Very laid back and relaxed atmospher.

I went there with 4 friends on what turned out to be their "midway to St. Patrick's Day night." There were shamrock decorations and a short entertainment by bagpipers (luckily not long because they were too loud for us to have a conversation), plus some Irish specials on the menu. One of my friends ordered the unlimited corned beef and... More
