Fodor's Review

A classic California beachside restaurant, the Crow's Nest sits right on the water in Santa Cruz Harbor. Vintage surfboards and local surf photography line the walls in the main dining room, and nearly every table overlooks sand and surf. Breakfast favorites include crab-cake eggs Benedict and olallieberry pancakes. Seafood and steaks, served with local veggies, dominate the lunch and dinner menus; favorite appetizers include fried calamari and the chilled shrimp-stuffed

artichoke. For sweeping ocean views and fish tacos, burgers, and other casual fare, head upstairs to the Breakwater Bar & Grill.
