Crow's Nest, Warwick, RI - sad disappointment

Science Chick | Apr 30, 2012 12:10 PM

We found ourselves in Warwick yesterday (chasing down a Craigslist item....but that's for another board) and decided to try the Crow's Nest for some fried seafood. Decided to split a seafood platter. Things started off well enough...nice salad with very impressive French rolls (warm, crusty...mmmm). The seafood was sad. Greasy, overcooked. The fish had a beer-type batter...not our favorite..and could have been a bit fresher for our tastes. Scallops were bay, not sea, and didn't have much flavor.
Portions were ridiculously large, and the kitchen kindly divided up our order onto 2 plates and gave us each a full coleslaw side. Not necessary (we didn't ask for this), but thoughtful. Service was great and the atmosphere is lovely, with a spanking clean dining room and awesome view of the marina. Alas, we won't return since the food was so mediocre.
