The Stoned Crow: A Restaurant Review

DISCLAIMER:  I am not a foodie.  Here's a list of stuff I don't (won't) eat:

  • Vegetables.  I'm dead serious about this.  I don't care if they are green, red, yellow, purple or blue.  
  • Cute stuff.  If it's cuddly (in my mind), I won't eat it.  I don't eat rabbits, lambs, deer or kangaroo.
  • Melon.  I don't think melon tastes like anything except maybe a sponge.  Who wants to chew on that?

That said, I'm going to do a review of a restaurant that Mr. Smith and I really like.  It's called The Stoned Crow and it's located at 39 Willoughby Road in Crows Nest.  We go there almost exclusively for lunch on weekends.

We typically order the same thing every time ...

Mr. Smith likes these pizzas:
Mexican Nacho on top; Mushroom on bottom

This is my favourite - Chorizo
It comes with pesto on it as well ...
I've started getting it with the pesto and it's quite good.

These are called slushies, I think...  (alcoholic beverage)

We've also had the Grilled Chilli Chicken Burger with Fries, the Potato Wedges with Sweet Chilli and Sour Cream and the Chicken Wings.  The food is pretty typical pub food and we love that kind of restaurant.  The reason we keep returning is simple.  The food is always fresh and hot.  The drinks are always cold and refreshing.  There is seating inside and out.  It's open air and cool.  They also have daily specials on the board outside.

We would both highly recommend it if you are looking to just relax and enjoy good food, drink and company.


  1. Those look really good. I'm always on the lookout for good pizza.

  2. The photos look great! Sounds like you've found a good spot.

  3. I walk past Stoned Crow all the time, but have never eaten there. Love those tables that are by the big window. Do you think it would be kid-friendly?
    So many good restaurants in Crows Nest!

    1. C., I think it's definitely kid friendly. I've seen people with kids there, pram or not. You should go! Maybe I'll see you with Hushpuppy some day. Say hello! LOL

    2. For sure! We're just in S. Willoughby, so pop down to Crows Nest all the time. :-)

    3. P.S. - Hushpuppy just saw the fish at the bottom of your page as I was typing this, and she's freaking out with joy!
