Crow’s Nest History
Back in the 1970’s, this prime spot on the South Jetty was home to the Tarpon Center Marina. Steve Harner, our original owner, 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 Maria. We still strive to live up to our mission statement: Great people committed to hospitality and striving to please every guest, every day.
