The nest was a pleasant surprise in downtown Jeanette. We had a group of 7 and although our waitress was attentive, our main course took a long time. We started with appetizers. Oysters were excellent-no grit. Shrimp cocktail was impressive as far as size, but the shrimp were a bit rough. I had the 10 ounce lobster as that's what... More

At the Nest, seafood is the way to go. Excellent preparation and beautiful presentation combine with soft atmosphere and attentive service to make a very special experience. Although the menu is a bit pricey, the food and the experience are worth every penny. There is also a wonderful wine list to choose from, and the desserts are the perfect way... More

If you like lobster tails you need to go to the nest. They have a 16 ounce tail which is the best. Also the oysters on the half shell and seafood bisque are also great

We had our company holiday dinner here and it was good. Most had the lobster and said it was great. I had stuffed baked shrimp, hubby had salmon with crabmeat, table mates had steak, veal, etc. Everyone agreed that the food was delicious. Service was great and restaurant was attractive. A nice find in downtown Jeannette!

We were so excited to return to the Nest, as it has been a while since we visited. What a total disappointment!! The restaurant was out of oysters., at 6pm on a Saturday? So off to a poor start. I have developed a dairy allergy, but was still looking forward to a big lobster with some sides. After we switched... More

The Nest is an hour drive from our home so we don't go there often. We do try to make the trip when they have soft shell crabs. The servers are always friendly and helpful.The food is well prepared and reasonably priced. It is always a pleasant experience and we often wonder why we don't eat there more often.

I traveled from Brownsville, PA to try "The Nest"- and it was great. Our friends had been there before and loved the lobster at this restaurant. We all had a great meal tonight - I had the stuffed shrimp....it was delicious. For dessert, my husband and I shared the almond torte- really, really good! How nice to have such a... More

this place has gone waaaay downhill. I was put off by the musty smell right away. It was faint, but I have a good sense of smell. The mussels that we had as an appetizer were bland and chewy. My seafood platter had a few shreds of lobster, two very small scallops and two large shrimp. The shrimp were well... More

Well.... We were expecting an excellent meal but we were let down. If you want to spend $100+ on dinner, then go to Mount Washington and eat at Monterey Bay. The king crab legs were like rubber. The steak tasted like it was microwaved. I've had better twice bakes potatoes from the freezer. I would say the crab cakes were... More

My wife and I traveled 40 miles to eat here on my birthday. We had seen The Nest several years ago while watching our granddaughter in a parade, and it looked intriguing. Now the same granddaughter was singing at a nearby under-21 club, and we had seen some small Nest billboards on Route 30, so we decided to eat here.... More
