Looking for a reasonably priced place with good food in WWC? Then the Crest is the place to go. They have a zillion beers to choose from, great burgers and other sandwiches. They have daily specials which are quite popular with the locals especially on pot pie night. I have always found my meals and service here consistently satisfying.

We have been here several times and have not been disappointed. Sometimes you are in the mood for a good bar food, if you are you are at the right place. Nice meaty sandwiches, clean,pleasant atmosphere, good service. Good variety on the menu, outdoor seating, although we have only been here off season.

Very nice place. Dining area and Bar area. Great for watching a game or chatting. Food is terrific, I had the mussels and linguini and it was fantastic. The happy hour specials are awesome.. the folks sitting with me had the home made Chicken Pot pie which came with soup or salad and it was part of Wednesday's happy hour... More

We walked from our hotel and had dinner here with 25 people. We all sat separately, however they mad an adult sit at every table with our teenage children. This was the only downfall. Many adults sat alone and were not happy with this. Our children were very well behaved and no need for that.

We have been eating here for many years now always in the off season. It seems to have gone through some changes. The staff seems a little too rushed and do not always let you know the specials and we have been finding the food not as good as it used to be. Given that it is very popular and... More
