The Crow’s Nest in Maplewood offers a laid back atmosphere without slacking in the kitchen or bar. The food menu offers plentiful options for both meat lovers (burgers, meat loaf, deep fried deviled eggs, french dip) and vegetarians (chili served in a pretzel bowl, house-made veggie burger, grilled cheese sandwich with apple compote and honey). The Crow’s Nest also has Metal Brunch on Sundays from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. with all the old favorites: eggs benedict, french toast, omelets, breakfast tacos and burgers made with “the blackest of angus beef,” in addition to chicken and waffles and a veggie slinger. The Crow’s Nest has a slew of daily drink specials and weekly events. Happy hour is every Sunday through Thursday from 4-6 p.m., offering specials like $1 off draft beers, $2 PBR tall boys and $2 Stag pints. Weekly events include Arbitrary Judgment on Monday nights, a “completely absurd” trivia game hosted by RFT favorite Kenny Snarzyk, sponsored by Four Hands and therefore resulting in cheap pints. Specials can also be found during Taco Tuesdays and regular trivia nights on Thursdays.
