Our Story

It all began in 1974 when Andy Hajiyerou opened Andy’s Fishery, providing ultra-fresh, top-of-the-catch fish to local restaurants. Andy’s reputation for quality, his honest sensibility and knowledge of the business soon became renown throughout the restaurant industry. This early success led him to take a leap of faith and purchase his own restaurant, the Crow’s Nest, in July 1991. Now, nearly 25 years later, time has more than proven the reward was well worth the risk. Today, believing in family as much as a successful business, Andy has enlisted sons Evan and Peter, daughter Eleni and wife Angela to build his business. Truly a family affair rich with tradition, Andy and his family run one of the most successful restaurants in New Jersey. Guests marvel at our menu’s emphasis on fresh seafood (yes, direct from Andy’s Fishery), as well as an array of inspired chicken, veal and beef dishes all meticulously prepared and pleasingly presented.

Many years have passed but one thing remains the same…the Crow’s Nest provides a warm comfortable ambiance and a menu that never fails to please. We proudly continue to garner top marks for food and service and remain a local favorite year after year with our loyal customers. We thank you and look forward to serving you soon!
