The food was excellent. It seemed like they were quite short-staffed, and I don't know if that was a one-time thing or something that is frequent. We were in no hurry so it was fine for us, but I saw at least 2 tables of people leave before ordering or receiving their food due to how slow it was. They did their best with what they had.

This restaurant could be amazing but they were way under staffed. It took forever to get drinks, and then our appetizer and then our dinner. I think they were trying but oye... it was rough.

Stopped in to give happy hour a try and WOW! Half off All drinks in the entire bar, FANTASTIC.

I also tried the new dessert special they had which was white chocolate bread pudding, all i can say about that is delicious.
Our servers name was Aspen, she was super fast and attentive to our needs, kept our glasses full and made us feel like we were friends forever.

UNTIL NEXT TIME ✌🏽

We decided to try this place off of recommendations from several friends. While the drinks are amazing, the food is mediocre. The service isn’t all that great either. We sat at the bar and the bartender completely forgot about my drink and our food took forever to come out. It just seems like they need a little extra help. I love the atmosphere so I will be returning to give Crate another try! 😊

I really wanted this place to be better. The food was just okay, nothing special. Service was slow, but friendly. The drinks were outstanding, if a bit pricey. The restaurant is quite pretty- giving a rustic vibe, and the seats were comfy.

It was our first time eating here. We ate outside on a beautiful evening. The prices are reasonable, but the portions were very small. Our food could have been warmer. They were also out of a few of our wine choices. I ended up ordering a lemon drop. Would not recommend that either. Overall, it was a disappointing experience.

We had a reservation, and showed up on time. 3 people. Got seated right away but then waited over 25 minutes at the table with no service. In that time, a middle-aged lady (not our waitress) came by to offer us a wine tasting which was dry and tasty, but we had no water on the table and were all super thirsty. The wine taster lady made a snarky remark about our waitress (in front of us.. weird?), who was obviously overwhelmed and was the ONLY server in sight in the whole restaurant. The lady then walked to the bar (about 5-6 feet from us) where we listened to her chat with another employee (or owner?), ignoring us. Our waitress came by and apologized multiple times, both women at the bar watched her drowning. We stood up and left the restaurant in front of the two women at the bar and they didn't care. On the way out, our waitress THANKED US for leaving. I felt sorry for her. This is our 4th time there, and the service has only gone down hill. For $15-30 a plate, I expect more. We won't be returning.

Service was slow. Not sure why. We had a 6 pm reservation and our food came out at 8:15 pm. My meal was very small and ok. Wouldn't order it again. My husband did enjoy his dinner however. Loved the music and ambience of the place. Very friendly wait staff. Just very slow and I left hungry. Perhaps returning from the pandemic was tough for the restaurant. I won't be returning for awhile though.

Air fresheners are great in a bathroom but it ruins the wine tasting experience when you smell it rather than what's in your glass. They were not busy but only 1 person working in front and she was telling us her frustrations- and the cheese board was just all piled on top of each ingredient.

Little slow getting drinks ordered and brought to us but food came out in a decent amount of time. Could be a little friendlier when they bring out the food. Felt the food was dropped on the table and very little interaction. Not unpleasant but not friendly.

We came for the dine on trade event and without a reservation were unable to get in. We came back the next week with a reservation. The host remembered us from the week before without any hints- not important, but definitely impressive. They offered a limited menu because of the event, and several options were no longer available (we had a late reservation- understandable). We ordered just about everything still available on the menu and shared as a table. All the food was exceptional. Every employee was above and beyond hospitable. One employee mentioned they were still figuring out the menu and working through all the "new-restaurant" kinks, and haven't heavily marketed online yet because they want to make sure all the details are right. If this was "sub-par" in their eyes, I can't wait to see what's to come. We'll be back, for sure.

The cheese board is horrible. There were only cheese crumbles. The cuts of meat on the board were so tough and clearly low quality. We had to open and serve our own wine. Do not recommend at all!

I paid $14 for two “lobster rolls” which consisted of a Hawaiian roll with a tiny piece of lobster smushed between the pieces. Service was extremely slow. Do not recommend.

The menu the night we were there was very limited due to a special event on Greer. However one in our group was vegan and there wasn’t anything on the menu for them. Nothing on their website mentioned the limited menu.
