About The Crow's Nest
The Crow’s Nest Restaurant & Marina, Venice’s Waterfront Landmark since 1976. We are committed to hospitality and strive to please every guest, every day.
You can visit our upstairs dining room, porch and bar overlooking the water for lunch and dinner daily. This offers a fine dining experience with an extensive menu filled with fresh seafood and land fare.
Our cozy and more casual downstairs Tavern is available for first come first serve. It's a dark wood-paneled pub serving it’s own unique menu, raw bar specials and ice cold beverages.
Coming by boat? Our Marina offers overnight dockage and facilities up to 140′; high-speed ValvTech gas and diesel pumps and all the supplies you need for a day (or week) on the water. Our marina also offers paddleboat, stand up paddleboards, 1-or-2 person kayaks or bicycle rentals for a perfect day in the FL sunshine!
Back in the 1970’s, this prime spot on the South Jetty was home to the Tarpon Center Marina. Founder Steve Harner, opened up a sandwich shop upstairs, serving the yet-to-be famous Fish Sandwich, our classic Reuben, burgers, and 50 cent beers.
Now, over 40 years later, The Crow’s Nest Restaurant & Marina is home to a gorgeous dining room overlooking the water, second floor porch dining, our pub-style Tavern downstairs and a full-service Marina. We still strive to live up to our mission statement: Great people committed to hospitality and striving to please every guest, every day.
