It's hard to find a "traditional" steakhouse on Hilton Head or in Beaufort County. I have been coming to the Island for years and fortunately found Cranes this trip. Décor and Food were excellent. Service and wine list was outstanding. Spencer turned a nice evening out into a memorable evening with his knowledge of the business, attention to detail and great responsiveness! 5 star!!!
Excellent food & excellent service - we will definitely go back
Always have great service and delicious food.
Our second time here, bringing friends who’ve never been. Our friends liver was overdone and a bit tasteless. Our 6oz Filets for $38 seemed more like 4oz filets. Cooked to specifications but overall didn’t seem like a good value. Bit overpriced for what was received.
Excellent as always
A favorite spot on the island. Food is always great and service is excellent. Ready to see more choices though.
Crab cakes good but just warm, Creamed spinach was room temperature. Probably won't be back soon.
We have been wanting to dine at Crane’s seafood & Steakhouse after seeing such great reviews on Open Table.
The food was good but high noise level as tables are close together and no fabric/ carpet to absorb sound.
Server was knowledgeable and friendly.
Green beans were over cooked. Salmon was delicious. Too much dressing on wedge salad.
I haven't had prime rib this good in a long time. And although I am usually so-so on salads, the one they served here was especially tasty. Added a nice glass of red wine and a really sinful brownie with vanilla ice cream, caramel topping and a side of whipped cream. Happy food coma!
All was wonderful. The hostess was very accommodating. Only negative was the cappuccino ordered, I don’t recommend it. It was just coffee with hot milk :( couldn’t even drink it.
Otherwise I would definitely recommend
This was our first trip to Crane's with another couple. We noticed on their one web page that it stated that the restaurant is "casual elegant" and dressed accordingly.
Boy, were we in for a surprise! We were seated in the bar area, which was a disappointment. The dining room was full. Almost everyone coming in, at least into the bar, was dressed in jeans, and tee shirts or sweat shirts, and some wore baseball caps.
There was a lively group of guys at the bar, kind of noisy at times.
Overall, dinner was good, filets were prepared as ordered and our server was pleasant and attentive. Won't go back while here this year, but will possibly go back next year.
Great food. Great service. Ordered from the early dining menu which had a limited selection but was very good. A plus is that their early dining special includes a glass of the house wine which was a good Merlot.
Four golfers all had excellent meals. Caesar salad was well done.
Has been a steady go to for great steaks !!
Very good place to eat, will return
Outstanding service and the Best Prime Rib Anywhere!
It really is about the food and the service. One of the best steaks and fish dishes we have had since moving here. Service was friendly and spot on. Food cooked to perfection. The Ribeye was amazing. And the Tilapia with orange sauce was delicious. Will be back again.
We sat at the bar with bartender, Joe. He makes a great manhattan and engages the patrons in friendly conversation. We ordered the prime rib with the scalloped potatoes as well as the strip steak. Both cuts of meat were delicious and perfectly prepared. The potatoes were an added treat. The bar patrons are a combination of tourists and locals. We will return.
The most delicious food! Can't wait for our next visit!
Our table enjoyed the pork chop, liver and meatloaf-great wait service.
Very expensive ($29 for 2 crab cakes with fries). Very noisy as tables are crammed together. Decor is tired. Overall not worth the money.
This was our second trip to Crane's. Mainly to make sure that our first experience wasn't just luck; it was delicious.
I requested (via Open Table) that we have a table where we could sit side by side, NOT across from. They apparently read the request, as we were seated at a nice four topped, with a great view of the restaurant activity.
Every item we ordered was wonderful. Laura, our server, was very professional and attentive.
We will be back again, as it is our new go-to place for a fabulous steak dinner.
Always a great place for Steaks. We have eaten at Crane’s Tavern many times and it is always a great experience. Whether we are celebrating an event, meeting old friends, or just looking for a date-night meal, Crane’s Tavern never disappoints. Staff is friendly, food is good and drinks are plenty. Thanks Crane’s for always feeling like home.
We waited for over 45 minutes to even get served a glass of water.
We had 7:30 reservations.
Hostess ignored our arrival to set up a table for a large party, did not even greet or explain delay
We were finally seated by a a nice man from the kitchen I believe,who had seen how long we were waiting. Then we began the 45 minute wait to place our order for drinks and then our meal.
Food was good but experience not worth the wait.
$200.00 meal with terrible service.
I always make it a point to come here on special occasions or recommend it to someone for that. Service never ceases to amaze me nor does the food. I can’t remember our servers name but she was lovely. And the food as always was amazing. I was in on Sunday 2/11 and it was a wonderful evening.
A classic steak house. Excellent food, friendly, attentive service, and a cosy ambiance. Portions are generous and food is prepared to the guest’s specifications. Good value for your dining dollar.
Food was good. Sesame tuna could have been better the filet was very good.
Service attentive and pleasant.
Overall nice spot.
Always great food, you get what you pay for. Was a bit noisy on this visit but it was Valentine’s Day and it was packed.
Fabulous menu, delicious steaks, homemade scalloped potatoes are to die for.
The Ribeye and the Prime Rib were spectacular. We live most of the year in Va. and usually come to Crane's when we are in Hilton Head. Never disappointed.
Valentines Day meal was fantastic. Great place, but service left much to be desired.
Simply the best steakhouse on HHI!
Wonderful restaurant. Would have given it a higher rating but the Mahi Mahi was extremely salty.
Was in Hilton Head for our anniversary and went to Crane's because they had prime beef and mostly good reviews. We were seated at a small table right at the entrance to the dining area and the door to the serving area, not good atmosphere for your anniversary. One very loud server visited a lot with apparently his regulars for long periods of time and our server started out fairly attentive, then she became involved in a very long conversation with another diner and just totally ignored us for the rest of the evening. Another server that seemed to be taking up the slack for the loud server finally spotted us and did bring us water and them took our dirty dishes while we waited for our server to check on us, when she finally came over, she said she had been watching us and knew we were still eating, which was totally untrue, her back was turned to us and she never looked our way!!!!
When you pay $35.00 for a 12 ounce prime rib eye, you expect it to be great and you expect the server to at least check on you and keep water in your glass.
Lovely, enjoyed every minute of it. Great atmosphere and great food!
Excellent restaurant in every respect. Don’t miss it
Everything was delicious and the special restaurant week menu pricing was great!!
Excellent, never disappointed, service and food great. Thank you!
The best steak on the island. Love the clubby atmosphere. Server Spencer is a keeper!
