Don't just learn about history-live it! At Battleship Cove, you will experience firsthand what it was like to serve on board a Navy warship in WWII. You can sound the diving horn on Submarine Lionfish before you slip below the sea...you can crank the handwheels on Big Mamie's 40-mm guns as you knock enemy planes from the sky....
But your journey doesn't end there. Sail through the Cold War on USS Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. and learn how the ship's unmanned helicopter hunted Soviet submarines. Or climb on board a high-speed missile corvette that the Soviets designed to fight us.
Whether you're a die-hard naval history buff or a casual enthusiast of military hardware, you'll have much to discover at Battleship Cove!
The Crow s Nest, located at 288 Arnold s Neck Drive in Warwick has been the home of a restaurant since the mid sixties. It was originally opened as a chowder house by the marina owner and a partner. They called it the Crow s Nest Restaurant and featured many of the same items we do today! The building was sold 2-3 times over the years but always kept the name Crow s Nest.
Sometime in the 1980 s the building sustained a fire and was rebuilt the way it is today. In the spring of 1992, after being closed for 2 years, my family took ownership of the building. This gave my husband and I the opportunity to have our own business. We both had been in the restaurant business for many years. Even though the restaurant business can be difficult we decided to give it a try. Because the location is not on a main road, but down a side street by a marina, we thought the best course of action was to keep the name Crow s Nest as there would already be some name recognition. Somehow we survived the first years and now in 2007 we are still here and going strong. We are fortunate to have many dedicated employees both in the kitchen and the front of the house. Thanks to their ability to go the extra mile for the customer we can look forward to another 15 years!
