    This is my go-to place for my birthday dinner and I always get the same thing because it is so delicious: 6 oz. filet au poivre, scalloped potatoes and creamed spinach. This time I also had the stuffed beet appetizer, which was excellent. My husband had the crab cake app, with halibut, rice and asparagus as his dinner. He enjoyed every bite. Crane's has been around for a long time and this is why. The food is excellent.

    Love the ambience of restaurant. Went here for my husband to get Jager Schnitzel (Veal Chasseur) on their menu. My friend and I had the Veal Chop which was excellent, especially the mushroom sauce. Green bean were little too 'hard'. All liked the potato pancake. My husband's dish did live up to his expectations. I have to admit, the sauce had a 'charred' taste to it. Was just 'ok'....something happened in that sauce we think. Waitress was great!..All the food looked good, except for my husband dish. Red cabbage is wonderful.

    Needed a steak after eating seafood for days - Cranes didn't disappoint. Had the ribeye with a wedge salad [with anchovies] - excellent! Steak cooked right at medium rare and seasoned just right. Wine pours could have been more generous, but not a big complaint. Served food at bat - great atmosphere.

    We had a nice experience at Crane's. My wife loved the place (she would have given higher scores) as she loves steak but it didn't suit me as much as I'm a bit frugal and struggle with paying $50 for steaks. (This is probably a decent/competitive price, but not for me.) Drinks were excellent and server was friendly/efficient. We would have no problem returning, but there are other restaurants nearby we'd probably go to first.

    We have eaten at your Resturant for many years. Loved the bread. Steak has an after taste of lighter fluid or a gas taste. Halibut and apricot? It was cooked ok but no thanks on the apricot. The bar tender is crabby and the waiter was a smoker. We come to Hilton Head to the Harbor Town Yacht Club from the upstate often. Sorry, but we are going to look for other dining options next time.

    One of the best restaurants on the Island. Always great food and service. Reasonably priced, convenient location along with plenty of parking. From the time we started going to Cranes' in the Germantown section of Philadelphia in 1972, we have never had a problem. Neighborhood atmosphere.

    Great meal. Wonderful service from Diane. The only negative was the bartender was overwhelmed. Took about 15 minutes to get a drink at the bar before being seated. He apologized ahead of time. I’m not blaming him. He was working hard but they needed a second person.

    One of my favorite restaurants on island. The crabcake is THE best on the island. Prime rib with just enough fat and perfectly seasoned, cooked the way I like it. Great service with friendly and attentive staff, without hovering. Nice wine selection. No formal cocktail list, but if you want it, the bartender will make it. Can recommend without hesitation. You won't be disappointed!
