Food was outstanding. The price was on the high side. I would definitely go again. Had the NY Strip and it was as tender as a filet.
Excellent experience, as usual.
The prime rib was exceptional this evening. Always good food which makes for a great evening.
Always a great steak dinner, they know what they’re doing! Sides were tasty and service was on point, great night at Cranes.
Always a wonderful experience! Our family fave spot for years. The food is amazing (best filet on the island) and the service is always top notch! Our table ordered filet, shrimp and grits, braised beef, French onion soup...all excellent. We even had dessert (pumpkin cheesecake ) and it was delish. You cannot go wrong at Crane’s
Always enjoy a nice steak at Crane’s - classic steakhouse environment and nice wait staff. Will return again!
Cozy atmosphere, friendly and attentive wait staff, great steaks. Will definitely eat here again.
Everything was excellent, service, food...awesome steak...as had been told. A little loud as there were several large parties...but not so much that we did not enjoy our experience. We will return
Great food and professional service in a nice atmosphere.
At first we were delighted with the ambience of this restaurant. However, all else was sadly disappointing. The waiter was remiss in many;ways. He neglected to refill our water, or ask if we needed anything else. He had NO personality and seemed perturbed when we didn’t order more than anticipated.
I ordered the special of the day - crab cakes, one of my favorite dishes. They were one of the worst crab cakes I’ve had, and both myself and another on our party ate not even a whole one and left the other to be thrown out. The waiter said nothing shen we said we didn’t want it boxed up. One would have thought a waiter - with any are of notice - would have asked if we were disappointed with our entree. He simply removed it without saying a thing! For the money spent, this was not worth it at all and we will not be returning.
We should have gone to Our favorite, RED FISH, but had opted to try this restaurant out based o the reviews I Open Table.
Food is excellent but overpriced. Table wasn’t available at time of reservation. Ended up in corner at improvised sed table not conducive to conversation.
Amazing dinner at this smaller than expected hideaway. All but one of us ordered and thoroughly enjoyed steaks (strip, filet, prime rib). The remaining member of our group loved the low country shrimp. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice dinner in Hilton Head.
Food perfectly cooked. Very good. A little too tight seating for my taste but tolerable
Highly recommend!! Oysters, steak, and sides were all delicious! We will go back soon!
The very best prime rib and butter knife tender filets perfectly seasoned. Fresh yummy warm bread, scalloped signature potatoes very good complement. Service friendly and very attentive without even asking!
As islanders, we appreciate the commitment to our little island- we will be back.
Excellent. Five stars. 2 & 3 star reviews need to get a life!
Excellent birthday celebration.
Service by Kelly was outstanding.
Fantastic food and service as has been our experience before. Wine list offers great choices. We always plan a visit to Crane's when we come to HHI
Great steak and prime rib. Look forward to exploring the menu for other dishes.
Attentive wait and serving staff. Excellent menu offerings and food quality.
Cranes is a must visit every time we visit the area. Best food on Hilton Head. Service and atmosphere is always the best.
The wine was old. The prime rib was fatty. The strip steak was cooked perfectly and ample. The Wedge salad was excellent with those marinated cherry tomato bombs. Nostalgic ambiance.
We celebrated my 60th birthday and it was great!
The serves was amazing last minute reservation. The hostess got us in earlier than we were suppose too Drinks we’re great and Our meal came quick and was Amazing Steaks we’re perfect ant Scallop potatoes were to dye for ! Highly recommend
This was my choice for my birthday dinner. We are in HH for a week. Watching out 5 nights. For us this is always a top choice.
Steaks were under cooked and waiting staff didn’t seem to care.
The food was amazing and so was the service! Thank you for making my birthday celebration extra special!
Food was great! Service was great!
Prime rib creamed spinach and scalloped potatoes were delicious!
Great steaks and service highly recommended
Still excellent as always! Try to go every time I'm on the Island.
The server was very good attentive, but she didn’t tell us her name. The food was really good. All three of us had Beef, I had to prime rib very good, my wife had filet mignon very good, my daughter had the ribeye excellent. We’ve eaten there numerous times and it’s always been good
Best steak on HHI that we’ve found. Consistently good food and service. Not as pretentious as some of the places on the island. It has a regular clientele of locals. Not to miss.
The food…especially the steaks..,are outstanding!
The food was outstanding and the service was fast and friendly. The only thing that we were very disappointed about is that we alerted the restaurant via the Open Table app that it was our anniversary and there absolutely no acknowledgement of it. We weren’t asked if we were celebrating anything before or after we were seated. At comparably priced (and higher) restaurants, you are made to feel that your special occasion is meaningful. It wasn’t here … this time.
One of the best meals we have ever had! We were pleasantly surprised with the price considering the quality of the meal! We will definitely come back again!
Solid Hilton Head restaurant. We were pleased with our salads and entrees (shrimp and grits and stuffed pork chop). Service was good. Atmosphere is like an upscale tavern. Overall, very good.
Cranes was very nice Our wAitress was very sweet. The prime rib was very good. We had a very nice time.
Loved everything! Best prime rib ever!
We were a group of 8 adults in Hilton Head for Pledge the Pink. Our dinner was delicious, the liver was some of the best I’ve ever had, Prime rib was also raved about! The atmosphere was very comfortable, service was great!
