The Bar: This place is a classic little dive nestled in the heart of Naples on 2nd street. A long narrow establishment with a couple of tables along the right wall, the bar, which seats roughly 10 heads, and some more seating in the back. There is a backdoor area in the alley for smoking, no drinks though, and you have to keep the noise level down due to the neighbors.
    This bar reminded us exactly of the Fling in Santa Ana, however, this bar is kept up a lot more. Freddy the bartender told us that the owner here is dedicated to running a clean and well maintained business. Freddy also runs his own carpet cleaning business, which caters to Crow's on the regular. This place is spectacular on the cleanliness scale. Certainly one of the most upper class dives we've been to.
Parking: The parking lot was fenced off with a sign that read "Under Construction"...however, no working was being constructed. The only available parking is on the street, and if you have ever been on 2nd street on a weekend, you know this is a difficult task. We recommend cabbing it to this spot.
The Crowd: Not too much going on this evening. Few locals scattered around, and the handful wild drunks in the back. It was nice to be welcomed as new faces for a change.
Service: Outstanding. Our bartender tonight was Freddy. We did not test his "speed" with the 2 beers we ordered, but his business card says "Fast Freddy". His specialty drink is the Washington Apple.
Prices: Not very dive bar like in this category. Sure, Coors Light was the normal $3.50, but $7 for a single pour of Fireball is freakin ridiculous. We left after 4 beers and 2 shots.
Entertainment: Not too much for entertainment... a TouchTunes Jukebox and 5 TV's, and the ever so popular 2nd street drunks outside.
Restroom: The bartender swore this was the cleanest of any dive... we agree. It was fabulous
Closing statement: Stick to beer here, liqour is overpriced, but at least try the Purple People Eater. Minus the price of Fireball, overall, great bar and we'll likely see this place again in the near future. We were told, the crowd usually pours in around 11pm on weekends.

We give Crow's a 4 out of 5:
