The Crows Nest is available for lunch and dinner.

The Crows Nest is ideal for a variety of food service styles including seated, buffet, family-style and pre-set service. Guests may order from the menu or you can create a special menu your guests are sure to love. The Crows Nest comes equipped with a bar, 50" television and projector screen.
