Looking for a place to chill after work and have drinks (other than the typical Earls and Cactus) turned us to Storm Crow Alehouse which opened earlier this year on Broadway.
Long Island Iced Tea
What’s cool about this spot is that there is a whole wall of board games which you can borrow while enjoying your drink. They have all types of games from 2 player games to games for a large group. We started off with jenga along with some Long Island Iced Teas. They have a large selection of drinks, but I found their cocktails to be just okay. Perhaps stick to the beers.
Mount St. Nacho
Since we were quite hungry from work, StevieD and I shared the Mount St. Nacho. The nachos were topped with cheese, jalapeños, red onions, roasted corn and black beans, pico de gallo salsa and sour cream. We added pulled chicken for an extra $6 so the whole dish came to $26, which is not cheap at all. And frankly, the dish sucked. The chips were not crunchy and the chicken was dry. I expect a lot more if I pay this much, and we left disappointed. Probably some of the worst nachos I’ve had.
Hillbilly Style Chik’n & Waffles Dee-Lux
S got the Hillbilly Style Chik’n & Waffles Dee-Lux and these sucked too. This came with house-breaded chicken strips and waffles served with maple cream sauce and honey mustard. The chicken strips were so dry! And same with the waffles…
All in all, we were extremely disappointed with the food at Storm Crow. I’d suggest coming here just for the drinks and the board games, but grab dinner elsewhere. They do a treasure box thing when your receipt comes which goes along with their whole theme.

Went for lunch with a work colleague several months back and had the same experience. The food was just bad. Ended up leaving much of it on the plate, which I rarely do. That particular location seems to be cursed. I’ve worked on the block for 18 years and I don’t recall any resto that lived there being worthwhile. I wonder if the food at the original Storm Crow on Commercial is any better. Will not be returning unless it’s for beer only.
Sorry for your bad experience as well! I did enjoy the drink and games aspect, but yes, I don’t think I will be back for food as well. If I get a chance to visit the original location, I will definitely have a post up for it! Thanks for stopping by!
