This is a real hidden gem. Joel, our server, was excellent and made sure we understood the items that were Crave's specialities. The food was excellent as well. I would suggest skipping lunch if you plan to eat an appetizer and a meal. The portions are very generous. The Mac N' Cheese was definitely award worthy. My next trip, I am visiting Crave again.

My mother and I stopped on the way out of IOP to get some brunch. The restaurant was very cute and unique on the inside. I ordered the Charleston brunch and it was amazing! The waitress, Brittany I believe, was very good! She made sure we always had what we needed! I would recommend this to someone for a low key quiet brunch!

We had a large party of 10 and ate outside. The seating was well lit, and quiet enough to have a conversation. The service was excellent. One of our party has a severe reaction to gluten and the staff were very diligent in checking to make sure her food was gluten free. The portions were big enough to share if desired. Overall, I would recommend this location to a friend.

Crave is one of our "go to" restaurants when we want to get a great meal, fabulous service and be able to hear each other talk across the table, even when the restaurant is full. Consistently great quality food.

My Husband and I went to Crave for our anniversary. The staff at Crave made our night so beautiful. Our table had a beautiful setting. Our waitress was knowledgeable about the drink and food menu. The Chef really knows what they are doing, because the food was wonderful. I cannot thank this restaurant enough for making our night so special.

We have had dinner and brunch here several times with both small and large groups. The food is always very good and service always very good as well. Tonight the food was great as always but for some reason the service was terrible . Very slow and our server seemed annoyed with us. We had to ask for bread and water several times and empty plates were left on our table for a very long time

There are so many great restaurants in this area to choose from that it takes a lot to stand out above the others. Crave never disappoints. The food is always stellar and the service is phenomenal.

Crave is a place we go each time we visit Isle of Palms. We usually have family and grandchildren with us. We’ve never been disappointed in the food or service. The scallops are my favorite dish and the children (and adults) love the mac and cheese.

SCALLOPS...THE RISSOTO WAS OVERCOOKED. MANAGER SAID IT TASTED OVERCOOKED AND THEY WOULD MAKE MORE..BUT CAME OUT NEARLY 20MINS LATER AFTER WIFE AND MOTHER WERE FINISHED (MOTHER'S B-DAY DINNER). STILL GOT CHARGED FOR THE ENTREES. MUSSELS WERE OVERCOOKED AND SMELLED BAD...MANAGER SAID THEY SEEMED FINE BUT WE DID NOT WANT THEM- TOOK OFF THE BILL, BUT STILL INSINUATED WE WERE WRONG ABOUT IT. MY STEAK WAS NOT A VERY GOOD CUT AND WAS OVERCOOKED - I DIDN'T EVEN WANT TO SAY ANYTHING BY THIS POINT. SERVER WAS FINE CONSIDERING THE CIRCUMSTANCES, BUT I GAVE A LOWER RATING BECAUSE OF TH MANAGER'S DECISION TO CHARGE US FOR 2 ENTREES THAT WERE PRETTY MUCH RUINED. OVERALL NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE.

Part of 9 with 4 separate checks. This Sunday Brunch experience was not up to par for Crave so please do not use this is an overall review of the restaurant as our prior experiences there have been excellent.

The waitress was very attentive so I do not want to blame the service on her as it appears they were understaffed overall. We waited approximately 30 minutes to be seated but we were early for our reservation. The table that had been designated for us sat dirty from the prior party for about 10 minutes after prior party departed which didn’t help our wait time. Upon being served one of our meals was forgotten and it didn’t show up until about 10–15 minutes after the remainder of the party had been served. They did comp this child’s meal so kudos to Crave for the gesture.

As stated, I would expect the restaurant to be a little more prepared or staffed for a Sunday brunch after church. I am sure they will do better next time and we will definitely visit Crave again in the near future. All restaurants have times where they do not succeed at excelling at servicing their customers and I am sure Crave will learn from this. The food was excellent so there is not complaint with the quality and value for the food.

My husband and I had a lovely dinner on Saturday night. The server was attentive and sweet. Everything we ate was excellent including the best she crab soup that we have had since moving here. We also highly recommend the macaroni and cheese. Like, really recommend it. The fried chicken was very good as was the fried chicken club. The next time we will try one of the steaks. They looked amazing!

Wife’s salad and my cedar plank salmon were perfection. Patrick the waiter and Patrick the manager both paid special attention. Reasonable prices for MT Pleasant compared to some that think they are downtown Charleston with not the same value.

I would recommend Crave to anyone anytime!!

A month or so, Crave was great. At my most recent visit, the server did her best to marup for the deficiencies in the bar and kitchen- warm white wine , about 1/4 glass, kitchen very slow with moderate quality lukewarm food.
I know they can be soooo much better

I like Crave but this time the service was not to be desired. The server came by & we weren’t ready to order. We did not see her after that for at least 20 minutes. I had to go inside & ask if she could come out. When we finally got our food, there wasn’t any silverware. I had to go in to get it. Then we realized there was no syrup for our waffles. The server did come by & we asked her to get some. It didn’t arrive for at least 15 minutes. By the time it arrived the others were almost finished with their brunch, so we just took the waffles home.

The food was good. I had the Charleston which is eggs Benedict with fried green tomatoes instead of a muffin, crab meat & poached eggs. It was tasty, but did not come with anything else. And looked quite sparse on my plate. The regular eggs Benedict came with potatoes.

The outside table was nice and they brought water for my dog. So the host was very accommodating.

Brunch with family on a Saturday morning. We requested outdoor seating and were pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was. Drinks and food were delicious. Staff super friendly and accommodating. We had a child with us who didn’t like the grilled cheese with white cheese and staff replaced the sandwich with American cheese with no issue. Highly recommend pulled pork sandwich, sweet potato fries, and the mac and cheese. In fact, if we did it all over again, we would definitely get the mac and cheese with the pulled pork on top! Excellent experience. Will visit again when in the area.

We were so happy with our first visit. The food and wines were carefully chosen. Everything we ordered was fresh and wonderfully flavorful. Pricing was fair. The servers and personnel were friendly, knowledgeable and accessible. We had Hanger steaks that were over the top great. Mac n' cheese was flavorful and deserving of the accolades. We will return. This is a gem in Mount Pleasant.
