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$... More

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... 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!

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... More

It is located right at the Marina facing west the beautiful Watts Bar Lake. The scenery of the lake is really nice and soothing, especially at sunset. The ambiance is relaxed, local and cordial. There is both inside and outside seating. If seating outside you can feed the fish and turtles that play around in their local enclosure, it is... More

Took our friends out for a nice long boat ride and ended up at Blue Springs Marina on Watt's Bar Lake. The restaurant is The Crow's Nest. They have a good variety on the menu, Burgers, Sandwiches, Fish & Shrimp Tacos, and a few dinners. Our group had burgers, tacos and the seared tuna salad. All were happy. The burgers... More

The place was not as clean as most places we eat. I had the seared tuna. It was by far the worse I ever had. My wife had the chicken with bacon and cheese on a sandwich. We had to have another chicken filet cooked because it was very tuff. The replacement was not much better. The tea was good.... More

Our first visit with family, we ordered one hamburger, one cheesburger, a hamburger steak, two Yungling beers and one iced tea. Total bill almost $50.00. The burgers, advertised as Blank Angus, were not hand made patties but tasteless "cookie cutter" patties you buy in big box stores. My "hamburger steak" (a hamburger pattie on a plate instead of a bun)... More

This restaurant had been recommended to us so we went to check it out and it was very good. We sat outside on the patio and while it was very hot, it was still a pleasant experience. There is also a ship's store adjacent to the restaurant and we were able to pick up a few things.

Drive your boat right up to the restaurant and sit outside on the dock to enjoy a nice evening meal. Prices were slightly high, but when there are only a few restaurants to choose from you don't have much of a choice. The waffle fries were good and the onion rings were good. We had hamburgers and they were average.
