Reviews for The Crew's Nest
Excellent Marina, 2013-07-08
Captain: , Boca raton (210)

Always a very nice stay. It is difficult to get a dock on the weekends, great amenities, good food, and helpful staff.

Great Place to Enjoy a Laid Back Time at PIB, 2013-04-24
Captain: , Catawba Island, OH (140)

We stayed at the Crew's Nest in 2012 on "guest passes" and really enjoyed the facilities. We decided to join in 2013 and look forward to using the facilities this summer. The docks are in average condition--nothing fancy here. However, the dock hands are great and the use of a pool and private restaurant are great for my family. The food is good at the restaurant, but I honestly prefer to go to other restaurants on the Island for some "people watching."

An all-time favorite, 2012-05-21
Captain: , Cedar Point, OH (659)

I struggle to think of what ammenity TCN is lacking. The outdoor pool is top-notch and includes a snack and beverage bar and a kiddie splash area. There are also tennis courts, a basketball court, a raquetball court, an indoor hot-tub, sauna, fitness center, lap-pool and air-conditioned restrooms w/ showers. The patio features a full-service bar, restaurant menu and a children's play area. During peak season, they feature live entertainment. Inside the clubhouse is another bar and formal dining on the second level. The marina office building features a clothing-oriented gift shop and bagged ice. Their golf cart rental fleet has been refreshed for the 2012 season and now inlcudes 6-passenger carts.

Great stop over!, 2011-10-28
Captain: , Milwaukee (121)

The marina doesn't offer much in terms of ammenities and the facilities are tired but that's pretty much true for all of the local marinas.

What this place offers is good service and access to a fun town! Just don't stay too long or you may never want to leave....

Semi Private Club. First Class in all respects. Good food and drink both indoors and out. Patio area is the "place to be seen". Very nice swimming pool. Docks are mostly 'fixed' but very good service assistance in getting docked. Just call on Channel 73. Reservations are a must for most of the summer.

The Crew's Nest is a private club, but does sell day memberships during the week when not busy. The food is great and the pool is large and nice. Located two blocks away from the wild and crazy area of downtown Put-in-Bay.
