Food is overpriced and average, at best. The best item on the menu is the pretzel sticks. Service is good. Fun place.

Waited two hours just for our drinks. And never once got our food. Their bartenders are not worth a damn and same for the owner🤣.

If I could I would give less than one star. The past few times we have been here, we have been less than impressed. The service has gone down hill along with their food. Our most recent visit we had to sit a table that...had yet to be cleaned and waited awhile for a waitress whom wasn’t going to clean the table until we pointed out it needed to be wiped down. A few minutes later we were told that the grill was closed but we could order fryer food..... 45 minutes prior to their posted closing time. It is safe to say they have made our decision to never come back very easy. It is a shame, we used to love to eat here! Get it together!!!More

Over my three trips to Ten Mike, we’ve eaten here for lunch quite a few times. The food is not always reliably great but the beer cheese and pretzels always are! Food is never bad. Lobster bisque was good as was crab corn chowder. Chicken...sandwich was dry on one occasion but the staff is always friendly and the margaritas are good.More

Nice location at the marina looking out at the water. Has indoor and covered outdoor seating. Reasonable sized menu. We has delicious mozzarella cheese sticks as appetizers, great corn and shrimp chowder, a panini and a salad. All the food was good. Service was a...little slow but maybe the main season is over and they were short staffed.More

The only thing this place has going for it is the view of the boats in the marina. Other than that, the service is the worst. You are ignored until you finally flag someone over and then after that you are never checked on. We...literally had to get up and find our server to settle the bill. Really? Food is way overpriced for what it is. It takes like food you get at a hospital or cafeteria. Burgers were dry and it just isn't that great of a spot to go eat. There are other places on the lake (either by car or water) that are much nicer. In general the entire marina has poor service. The deck hands just stand around and you have to tell them what to do when you want boat services. Disappointing to say the least- this is the closest marina to our location and we drive (or boat) right past them and go out of our way to visit other spots on the lake. Make it better Blue Springs !!More

Enless you are a big eater you will need to spilt the hamburgers and fries here. They are huge. Salads and wings will fill you up after being on the water all day. Plus after you eat you can feed the turtles and fish at...the dock.More

Food was decent, burgers were good. Servings of onion rings were very small - my husband and I split an order of rings and we each got 3 very small onion rings. Not everything on the menu is available (tea wasn't brewed at lunch time...and no tomotos for the sandwiches ordered). Service was very good, wait staff was pleasant and helpful. Lots of flies, even though it is an indoor restaurant, it was as if we were outside on a picnic with all the flies.More

We were camping and decided to come here to watch the Tennessee Vols play and sat on their patio so our pug could come with us. Couldn't get any service, although there were 2 servers out there and it wasn't that busy. Kept going inside...to the bartender Rose who was great. Wouldn't give us the wifi password without paying 2.50!!!! We were on the patio eating and drinking so why do we have to pay for wifi!!!! Ridiculous!!!!!!! Don't think we'll be back! Good game thoughMore

Stopped in to the Crows nest with friends and was about what you would expect from a local marina bar and grill. Food was good but not over the top. Large portions and decently priced. Good selection of food, but overall lacked seasoning and distinction....Full bar and a nice vie of the marina. Service was ok, but probably would have been better if we were locals. Would probably return if I was in the area.More

This may be the only full-service bar in the area. It's always buisy. Food is average to above average. Choose between a burger, salad, or a burger with a salad. Pricey for the area, but it's the only wet dock in town.

This used to be the best place on Watts Bar lake. The food is good reasonable prices but something changed this year. We were there via boat on fridays saturdays and even sundays for years but not anymore. Now you the consumer have to pay...their liquor and beer tax for them. 1 frozen drink in a dixie cup 8$ plus sales tax plus liquor tax over 10$ not no but heck no!!! We pay the 8$ for 1 shot of liquor to compensate for the tax. Thats the cost of doing business...... If I have to pay your taxes sell me the drink for actual cost without markup! Beware boaters look at your reciepts or juat drink water 😞! Change this back and we will be back big WillMore

We eat here several times a week when we stay at our house in Ten Mile. It's a 15 minute boat trip from our cove and we love the pretty view of the lake and the marina. The carp, bluegill and turtles just over the...side of the porch are a fun attraction fro kids and adults alike. We love to toss them our extra bread and fries. Ladies must grab a "Boat Hair Don't Care" shirt from the marina store. The food is pretty decent for a small marina restaurant in the middle of nowhere. It's essential Sysco food but done pretty well. We always get the fried mushrooms, ahi tuna, and sandwiches or burgers. Can't go wrong there!More

The food is good, but the atmosphere and views on the deck are the best. The food is good for the locale, and the offerings are abundant. From hamburgers to fish, the menu covers a wide variety of food items. All of the food is...very good, but may be considered expensive, but it is on the lake!More

If you like burgers, go here. They are 10 oz. and they offer a wide varitiey of burgers. I had the Black & Blue Burger, my husband & my Father-in-law had just the cheese burger. All were excellent. Many options for sides, I had waffle...fries and the other two had onion rings. Both were plentiful and good. Serve is good and the beer cold. They have a nice outside deck that over looks the marina. Great spot to watch the turtles and fish. We will be backMore
