Lunch with Chef Judi: The Crow's Nest

VENICE, Fla. -- There is a reason why The Crow's Nest has been a destination waterfront eatery since the 1970's.

A wine list that features Far Niente and many bold beautiful Cabernets, along with a full cocktail list.  Look for aged espresso crusted sirloin with buttermilk onion rings, real fresh Gulf red grouper sandwich, oysters on the half shell, fried oysters and their crab cakes.

Summer offers wine dinners, craft beer pairings, and single malts and cigar night.

A Venice specialty for 40 years with outstanding views.

The Crow's Nest is located at 1968 Tarpon Center Drive in Venice, overlooking Venice Inlet.
