Can't remember when I've had such a generous tasty portion of fish. Yes, I can -- over 10 years ago in Port Clinton (walleye). Great sides. Service could have been a little more attentive but the food made up for it.

A group of fellow veterans wanted to do a holiday get together, and a couple of them kept recommending The Crows Nest. We were not disappointed. It has an extensive menu, also listed online, and a dozen of us got a long table in the...More

DO NOT eat here if you have food allergies or sensitivities. The servers and kitchen staff are NOT TRAINED, DON'T LISTEN, nor do they UNDERSTAND what gluten free means. People who have celiac, auto immune disease, etc have a hard enough time. Simple and less...More
