This is the place that brings the Florida Key West feeling in the heart of Chatham. Great live bands and artists, good location and lots of fun with friends!

Always enjoy catching up with old friends here. Decent music and live bands playing for entertainment. Drinks are always flowing.

Walked in here on a Sunday night for dinner with my 2 kids. Looked around at the dark, dingy place and there was maybe 1 customer and not too many tables so we turned around and walked out. Wouldn't bother giving it a second chance.

The Nest is a good place for pub grub and drinks. Weekends bring in local entertainment or open mic's. Very casual!

Horible customer service.But other than that it's a good place to have a few beers with friends. Just avoided the female "bartenders" there the problem.

OK spot for a pint or two, well maybe three. Good draft beer selection, some sketchy customers, can look random with smokers hanging out front on King St. Have never eaten there. We will typically go for a drink / shoot pool or a nightcap at the end of a party night.

The nest is a hub for meeting people you know, want to get to know and people you never want to know! In a way it is Chatham's bar from the show cheers, just a lot grungier. The food is not bad, it shares a kitchen with the restaurant next door, so it's a plus. The wings are my personal... More

I ordered soup and salad. The soup was oversalted, and the salad was huge and delicious, which made up for the soup. My companions ate regular pub food, wings, and chips, which they liked. Service was fast, cheerful and informative.
