All dishes were scrumptious! Shared the Mac N Cheese which did not disappoint. Plank salmon with Mediterranean grilled salad was generously sized and delicious. The Flank steak with cherries, walnuts, & Brie was just downright special. Really yummy!

We just had to go Bach when we were traveling close in the area. The macaroni and cheese is excellent and the toppings you can chose just add to the flavor. Always a must when your close to Mount Pleasant or Charleston.

Tried Mac and cheese with pork and gnocchi and steak. Good, but not amazing and a little expensive for what it was.

This place is great! Great service, great food. From the moment you step inside you are made to feel welcome and appreciated. And not in a phony unctuous way. These are genuinely good people who enjoy what they do. And the food is amazing. Fresh ingredients and interesting combinations. We are local and have watched as the service and food at local restaurants we live continue to deteriorate with the increase in tourism. Not Crave! Just a great place!

Oh mah gah AMAZING. I can't say enough. I wish I remembered the name of our server because he was perfect. The food was to do die for. Between our group we had the mussels, calamari, crab cake, hanger steak, short rib, Smores cheesecake and chocolate cake. Everything was beyond delicious with beautiful presentation. Ambiance was quiet, cozy would be perfect for a date night. MUST GO.

My friend and I both had a delicious dinner. The mahi topped with crab over risotto was great. The risotto was perfect! I had been to Crave 2 weeks prior, and the risotto was left off my chicken Marsala entree. I was so disappointed, but didn’t complain. Glad I was finally able to try it. The food did not disappoint! Note to those who look at the menu online - the prices have increased slightly. Worth the $. I’ll return for sure!

Although we had been to Crave three times previously this was our first time for lunch. The dinners had been fantastic. Lunch was just as good. The lunch menu is varied and everything looked good. My wife had the hummus plate which came with ample pitas, fresh olive tapenade, and a small salad with lemon vinaigrette dressing. It was delicious (at least what she shared with me. I didn't get any of the salad but my wife said it was great). I had the borscht along with the mac and cheese with grilled chicken. The borscht was out of this world! The mac and cheese lived up to its awards and the chicken was perfectly grilled.

I've been to Crave many times before, however this time, my experience was not as good as the times before. For once fast service was unwanted and was not a good thing. We were seated and the waitress came by and took our drink orders. A few minutes later she comes back with our drinks and then we order our food. 5 minutes later she comes by with a basket of bread to get us started, and right as she sits the bread down, another server brings us our food... we ordered 5 minutes ago! I was expecting to have a nice, long dinner but instead it felt rushed. Other than that the food was great, but for the first time ever, I would have liked to have slower service.

Service and cocktails were great! Food was horrible. My husband and I got the Charleston (fried green tomatoes, poached eggs, hollandaise, and crab). Hollandaise had no flavor and was VERY thin, crab was cold. Definitely not worth $16. Terrible.

Was looking forward to trying Crave but sadly was not all that impressed. Service was poor, from seating to ordering. Tried the Mac and Cheese appetizer and honestly it was not what I expected at all..over use of parmesan cheese made overly stout, for lack of a better word.
My ribeye was cooked to order, I like a little steak sauce with my steaks and asked for some but they do not have any. Which I thought was odd.
May of been just an off night for them but I was disappointed.

Mac and cheese sinful Wife’s salad excellent. Asked for bread never got it. Added scallops to Mac and cheese. Got three small ones. Asked if this was normal and waiter said usually two......for a $15 added charge? Kinda ridiculous. That and broccoli more than doubled the price of their superlative Mac and cheese.

But we’ll go again. Just will never order scallops at such a price.

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.
