Nice location at the end of Seneca Lake near marina. Watch the boats go by in the canal as you eat your food in a relaxing atmosphere. Outside or inside dining available. Full bar and nice selection for food. Becky is a great waitress, ask for her. Enjoyed our experience, A+

My daughter and I enjoyed our lunch at the Crow's Nest when we were in upstate New York in August. Who can resist turning off on a road called Boody's Hill, especially when you can see it heads towards the water? We turned off and found the Crow's Nest restaurant located right by the marina. We sat outside and had... More

A meal is much better when sitting by the water. Great service and delicious food make the experience go a long way. Many more enjoyable evenings at the Crows Nest are yet to come. We have enjoyed every on of ours.

This place is great! Tasty food, cold beer and drinks (with a lot of local options for beer and wine) and an amazing view. The fried pickles are TOP notch! As well as the sizzling shrimp and the daily wrap special is always a good go to for lunch. At night on Saturdays in the summer they showcase a local... More

Found this place along the canal, with a great view of the marina and the boating. Had lunch here two days in a row. We just had salads, but the Buffalo chicken salad was really good....nice buffalo/blue cheese dressing, didn't overpower. Enjoyed the view and the weather. Staff was friendly and service was quick.

Awesome service scenery and food.. Great little find off the beaten path... I had the scallops and my daughter loved the lobster roll... Well done and sitting on the patio by the river was awesome!

This is a delightful place to enjoy dinner as the sun sets over Seneca Lake. It also has delicious fish dishes and clam chowder.

The view is pretty amazing and the restaurant is located right on the water. I had ordered the Mahi Mahi and it was amazing. Makes for a great date night location.

If you are going for dinner you better call and make a reservation. I would say the food is noting special, pretty much the same as every other restaurant in the area.

I'll get to it fast. Skip it, with some many options, eat elsewhere. We picked this place based on earlier reviews but they were misguided. This was a family dinner on vacation. We should have known to skip just based on how ignorant the gentleman was that took our reservation. With a party if 9, we were forced to sit... More
