I had the Strip and my wife
I had the Strip and my wife had the Ribeye. I make a very good steak at home and I was very impressed with the preparation. I also had the wedge salad and it was also great. It was a little loud, but it was during Heritage week so I understand. I would recommend!

My husband and I enjoyed our dinner at Crane's Tavern Steakhouse & Seafood. The friendly waitress and outstanding steak dinner made it a perfect evening. We will return in the future.

My wife's liver and onions
My wife's liver and onions while very favorable, did have some gristle running through it. My flounder was excellent! The ambience is very rustic.
Steak is definitely their specialty as seafood choices are limited.

Everyone in our group was extremely pleased with our orders. The ribeye and filets were perfectly done and the sides and appetizers were excellent as well

Our meals were cooked to our liking and as ordered. Service was average and expected with no letdown. Pricing was a little high but expected prior to the reservation being made. I do beleive you get what you pay for. When we made our reservation I was asked if this was a special occasion and since it was our 35th wedding Anniversary I advised them accordingly. Some what disappointed, management made no effort to make our dinner notable nor was there any mention to our special occasion. My point, don't ask if you have no intention of taking any action. A simple "congratulations" from the waitress or management would have been a nice gesture. We would go back if a steak or prime rib was our desire!

Great Food / Great Service
One of the most pleasant dinners I have had in years. Every course was terrific. A very nice atmosphere.
I will go again and again with.

A nice steakhouse with friendly ambience,wood panelling,etc. excellent and knowledgable server, who was quick to correct a slight undercooking error. Fully recommend the prime rib (house specialty) and the filet mignon, which was generous and flavorful. We would revisit this restaurant next time on Hilton Head.

Hidden restaurant that is known well by the locals!! Great service, very good wine selection and food was superb. Great one for the golfing crowd.

Did not expect a great meal from an older style steak house but could not have been happier. For only $39 we were serves a prime New York, tender and cooked to perfection, that would have cost double in Palm Springs, Ca. The side dishes were also done to perfection. Scalloped potatoes, creamed spinach and asparagus. Very hometown type service. Friendly and warm. The waiters could have used more help. They did everything. Only one bus person and 4 waiters. Still had no problem with the service. Very important to anyone who eats out often. Yes, give it a try especially if you are tired of seafood.

Very very Good. But...
We had a group of 5 for dinner at Crane's last week. The food was very very good, but the service was a little disappointing. Long waits for her to take our order, in between courses, etc. No fault to our server, she was very good, but simply seemed to be swamped with too many tables to cover. We would absolutely come back again.

These guys do an excellent job with both surf and turf. Their crab cakes are some of the best.

We dine at Crane's each year when vacationing at Hilton Head. It's always one of our top choices for a well prepared, excellent dinner.

Third time to Crane's
This was our third time to Crane's on Friday, July 5th. The restaurant was very very busy but we were seated upon arrival
per our reservation. We respect a restaurant that honors a reservation. The service was very good. There was no unnecessary wait due to the holiday week-end. We had Prime Ribs and Osso Bucco (my husband's favorite). Its is a regular menu item. Let alone Bread Pudding. We can now say Crane's is a favorite and has consistent good food and service.
Thanks to Open Table we continue to find great restaurants on Hilton Head Island, SC.

My wife and I have been coming here for about 5 years now and have yet to be disappointed with the food, level of service, or atmosphere at Crane's. We've come to the conclusion that this is one of the few restaurants in Hilton Head that is so reliable anything new on the menu is as safe a bet as any of the regular items we've come to enjoy.
Our most recent trip, we tried the Manhattan style chowder as our starter, and Crab stuffed Wreck Fish for our main, and were not disappointed with either. We enjoyed every bite.
Our server Lindsay was stellar to say the least. She was helpful with recommendations knowing the menu well, assured we never saw the bottom of our glasses, and remain satisfied throughout the entire meal. Tip top service.

Very small and cozy
The first thing I noticed as I walked into Crane's was that it was a very small but intimate restaurant. This made for a very romantic dining experience. The food and the service were both excellent. This restaurant will definitely be one I return to.

Wonderful wine and dine
I had been to this restaurant before, but was in a large group. The restaurant is small and not necessarily a good fit for a large group. This time, 3 of us went and the experience was awesome. The food was awesome and the wine list impressive. I will certainly visit this restaurant again and would highly recommend it!

I've been going to HHI for almost 20years but never frequented Crane's Tavern. BIG MISTAKE .
Had one of the best New England clam chowders I ever tasted and the prime rib was extremely good.
Count us in for our future trips to HH >

Nothing to say other than I enjoyed having dinner there once again. They never disappoint!

Tried the early bird
We picked from the half dozen selections on the early bird menu. The best by far was the Chet's special of baby shrimp with Alfredo over linguini. Very good. The Tilapia was very good also. Our waitress was personable and attentive.

One of the few very good restaurants open on Sunday evening. We go every year on our annual vacation.

We have been going to HHI for over 20 years and I'm embarrassed to admit we have never been to Crane's Tavern. We visit two times a year and we will be going each time. We have a very well behaved 7 month old girl and even though we felt a little uneasy when we arrived the staff made us feel right at home. She was a hit with everyone and the food was definitely a hit for my husband and I. Excellent food and excellent people. Thanks for making us feel at home.

Terrific "pub" atmosphere, with a great bar area. We make certain to come as often as possible... consistently excellent, with great service. Food is terrific... try the scallops.... BUT, try the large filet for the BEST steak you'll EVER have...
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Oh the prime rib!
So tender and flavorful. Waitress was very knowledgeable. Toughest thing was to decline dessert - no room! This will be on my must-visit list when I come to HHI! Not a big place so definitely book ahead.

A Favorite on the Island
Our favorite restaurant on Hilton Head. The food is excellent and the service is great. Will keep coming back for more.

Revisited after long time.
The revisit to Crane's after many years of visiting closer restaurants to us was not disappointing. The service, ambiance and quality of food was of the highest quality. Celebrating my wife's birthday she ordered the prime rib which was served perfectly to the heat ordered and was seasoned just right. I ordered the special which was Grouper topped with shrimp in a delicious sauce. I hesitated to order fish in here because I knew there beef would be delicious. However, I was not disappointed. A little pricey but worth every bit of it.

Excellent choice for meat lovers
We went here for a "good" steak and were not disappointed. The filet melted in my mouth and the sides were fresh and delicious. Server was a long time employee and very knowledgable and friendly. On the pricey side and true "one person" portions, but definitely worth it. Will return next time in town.

We have dined often at Cranes and each experience is wonderful. Great food, great staff. Wish they were in Charlotte too.

Three of us dined here on a Saturday evening. It was a little more noisy than usual due to a couple of large parties. A filet and the prime rib were cooked perfectly and butter knife tender. Veal Osso Bucco was also very good but I prefer a brown sauce for this dish over the tomato based sauce it was served with. A great bottle of wine complemented our meal and our server was excellent.

CRANE'S A WINNER
After our first visit to Crane's during our visit to Hilton Head last year, made a special point to return this year - very glad we did. Excellent food and service - Dianne is tops. Prime rib here is perfect, but be very hungry as the portions are large and the sides delicious. Fairly-priced wine list with good selections. Marvelous desserts, too. Location is a bit hard to find in the darkness that envelopes Hilton Head Island so if a first-time visit, make a point to find this place during the daylight hours so dinner is not ruined by getting lost in the dark!

Second time dining here. Best
Second time dining here. Best steaks ever match the atmosphere and service. A must if one's visiting Hilton Head.
