A few friends and I went here for breakfast. The place is great. Sit upstairs by the window to get a good view. Great options and the food was amazing. Service was polite and was always on time. When we went it was a busy place so if u are coming for sat/sun lunch or something, be prepared to wait 5 or 10 minutes. Overall though it was a great place and I would highly recommend it.
I loved this lil place. A friend and I went to Crows Nest before she moved to California last year. Great atmosphere and staff. They had an amazing photo framed on the wall of a lady stepping down on a small set of stairs out of a old beat up mini house or something. I always wanted to ask if it was for sale or get a photo of it. But I haven't been back lately that part of town. So the photo probably isnt hanging on wall anymore :(. Anyone know who took that photo and where i can contact them. Can't wait to go back to Crows Nest though. Decent prices and nice place to chill.
I found the Crow's Nest to be a simple restaurant with a fairly simple menu, which I liked. The server was very nice and our orders were perfectly executed. I had a reuben, which can make or break a place for me. It was very good. My husband had a bean burger, which was also wuite tasty. My favorite part of the meal was the sweet potato fries. The only thing I did not like was that it seemed like a group of what I assume were regulars tended to get way more attention than us.
A friend introduced me to the Crow's Nest last week and I fell in love with the place. Great ambiance, wonderful quality dishes (LOVED the fish 'n chips), altogether a gem of a place that serves up some great homemade goodness. However, I also have to say that what mars this image is the service. There are simply not enough servers to cover the incredibly busy lunch hours. Last week our server sporadically (although always smilingly and gracefully) bussed our table; the majority of the time we had to flag her down as she zoomed by. I introduced the place to some friends today at lunch and was TERRIBLY disappointed with the service we got. I understand being a server is not the easiest job but ours were grouchy, inefficient (note that we came in at the end of the lunch rush when nearly half the place was empty), and forgetful. Two of us were not asked for drinks. Our salads didn't come until the end of the meal when I couldn't even eat it anymore. We had to wait five minutes and then ASK for silverware while our meals cooled. Then our server presumed to keep my change when it was obvious we were none too pleased with our service. Only the food kept me from walking out the door today. The food gets five stars, today's service gets one star.
Great Food, reasonable price and I love the location and most of the staff. The one problem I've had is a little inconsistency with the servers. Sometimes they are fantastic but other times they are forgetting things left and right. Overall a good choice though.
Great food and great art!!!! Enjoy the work of a Kalamazoo photographer, Gretchen Miller owner of Visualeyes Photographics. This display is being shown until January 1, 2008. You won't want to miss it!
I am a poor college student living in Kalamazoo and the Crow's Nest is a great beacon of culinary goodness. Whether eating an inexpensive meal before a night of heavy drinking or recovering from one in the morning, the menu is voluminous and the prices are reasonable. The Crow's Nest is one of those rare, beautiful, independent restaurants that restore your faith in local business.
