The MacN Cheese lived up to it's reputation, the drinks were strong and my husband had the Mahi special and said it was perfection. Would definitely go again.

Crave was a wonderful place for brunch. We had a reservation for 4 but 4 more family wanted to join us and it was no problem. Food was delicious especially the Mac n cheese! Drinks were potent and our waitress adorable.

The Brussels sprouts appetizer was disgusting - approximately three shaved Brussels sprouts lost in a sea of cranberries, pancetta, and candied walnuts. The whole thing was deep fried to nearly burnt and topped with a teaspoon of goat cheese. The Mac and cheese (claimed to be the best in Charleston) was bland and super fatted. Everything was very overpriced, ill-prepared, and sat like a rock in my stomach.

We had Joel as a server and he has actually been our server before when my husband and I were just there.
He is very personable and made our daughters first time there very enjoyable.

We were visiting from out of state with our 4 dogs and booked a table outdoors. The service and accommodation they provided for us and our pups was fantastic- especially from our waitress Camryn!!! She was the best part of the meal honestly. But the food was fantastic too and everything was as ordered and very timely. Will definitely return when in the area!!!

We ate outside with was delightful. Our waitress was very attentive and did a good job. The food was excellent. One member of our party of five had a spinach salmon salad which looked outstanding and the portion was more than ample. The rest of us thourghly enjoyed our food. We will come again.

Jacob provided excellent service. We were in and out on time to make our play. The mac and cheese is definitely the best in town and I really enjoyed mine. My wife's salmon salad could have been a little bit more done. Crave has a pleasant ambience while still being family friendly.

It was very nice, but most entrees began at $27, more than I thought. Adding some boneless ribs to meal was an additional $14, thought that was high even though I enjoyed the meal. For the same price as the Fish House, thought the value was not quite the same

Sunday brunch-coffee was lukewarm and waitress wasn’t around to get another cup. 2nd cup was warmer. Husband’s omelet was pretty hot but potatoes cold.
Do NOT recommend the avocado toast.
We will NOT be back!!!!

Had been here for dinner. Really enjoyed the food and service. Do not recommend for brunch. Service was very slow, this would have been okay if busy but restaurant was almost empty. Soup was cold, poached eggs were so over cooked they were hard boiled. Avocado toast had no salt or pepper. Avocado and tomato, were over ripe. Will not go back for brunch.

Crab cakes, fried oysters and she crab soup were all delicious. Out of town folks ordered the scallops and were equally pleased. Ambiance is lovely and low noise level allowed us to easily catch up with friends. Two hour meal, never felt rushed, excellent service.

Food and service (by Erin) were excellent. Cost of wine and martinis was way over the top!! Be careful when choosing the pairing recommended! Macaroni and cheese dish is excellent.

Crave is a pleasant, low-key neighborhood restaurant with good food and a diverse menu. This was not as great a visit as we have had in the past. We were quite disappointed that the servers don't wear masks. Also, we and diners at several other tables had to request rolls. As long as masks are needed, we won't be back or urge others to go, even though we live close-by.

Worst $200 dinner I have ever had. $50 ‘ribeye’ was super chewy, $15 ‘signature cocktail’ was super weak and sweet, hostess service and waitstaff were noticeably indifferent. I could [should] have gone somewhere downtown with much nicer ambience, food, and service.

I visited Crave a couple years ago with family and had a wonderful experience. This weekend I decided to return on a trip with my daughter and girlfriend. I wanted to take them to Crave for my daughter’s birthday dinner while we were in town. It didn’t go well, and we left very disappointed. We had reservations, and stood waiting for over fifteen minutes before we were even acknowledged. Once we were finally seated, our server proceeded to ignore our table for another twenty minutes before ever taking our drink order. When she returned with bread, she dropped it on the table and ran off, leaving us without bread plates, napkins or silverware to butter the bread. It took ten minutes before she returned and we could ask for plates and silverware. We ordered salad as an appetizer but it was not brought until she dropped our entrees off.

There was toilet water that had leaked all over the floor. Not a nice thing to step in at all. I don’t think the bathroom has been cleaned in a long thing.

The food was good, but the overall bad experience overshadowed it.

Will not return.
