Fired oysters and Specialty cocktails were awesome. Love how their drinks use local distributors. Food was amazing. This was a great treat for our anniversary dinner.

We were happy to secure a last-minute reservation for an early evening dinner for a birthday celebration. We were seated right away, but otherwise felt rushed through every course of our dinner. The food was delicious and plentiful - enough to bring home for an additional meal!

Pricey but very good food. Appetizers arrived exceptionally quickly and were delicious. Same thing is true for our entrees. Will go again.

I may be shooting myself in the foot here, but Crave would be my top dining choice in the Charleston area for a romantic dinner. And, that would be over my other two most favorite restaurants: 5Church and Eleve.

We are enjoyed in jus restaurant:
Mac and cheese is delicious as advertised- calamari could have been a little crisper- sirloin was good , tuna appetizer was good-
Our only problem was the mussels, which were either over cooked or not fresh-
The server , Thomas immediately removed them from the check and offered us a free dessert-
The right thing to do-
Would recommend

We were there for my birthday dinner. 3 out of 5 meals were not enjoyed. 2 steak & Frites, the steak had too much gristle in them & tough. The Sea Scallops we’re under cooked. We should have spoken up sooner, but the manager took our drinks off our bill. The cedar plank salmon & Mac & cheese are always good!

We returned to Crave for our birthday gift from the restaurant (10% off each item and a free dessert). They were very busy, so things were a bit slower than usual. We weren't impressed with the mac & cheese fritters. The New Bedford scallops were excellent and the short rib gnocchi was huge but tasty. We'll be back.

Staff from entry to presentation to service outstanding

Our wine from Friuli Pinot Gris excellent (we have a winery in northern Virginia and happen to produce Pinot Gris and yours was excellent)

Very enjoyable evening and will return when we return to Charleston

Honey and I enjoyed a tasty lunch following a drive to Sullivan Island and Isle of Palms. Crab cake atop a salad with arugula, roasted squash, garbanzo beans, toasted quinoa and grilled Brussel sprouts - yummy. Also had the mac and cheese - very creamy and good!

The She Crab soup was wonderfully tasty with the Spinach Salad and shrimp add on.
The service was great, even for Sunday early dinner!
A Palmetto lager went down cool and easy with the salad and soup.

Staff and service was fantastic. Food was not as outstanding as it has been before. 1 of 3 entrees was great (ribs gnocchi) , 1 was just a bowl of too-creamy Mac-n-cheese, and the seared tuna was over-seeded, overpriced and bland. All portions were over-sized.
Again, great staff.

We had reservations to celebrate our sister’s birthday. We enjoyed being in the tent and having the opportunity to socially distance. The food choices were great and affordable. The proportions were more than we could eat at one sitting. We highly recommend Crave for casual dining.

An outstanding experience
When: Weekend, dinner
Waiting time: No waiting time, need to make reservation
Food: As starter we asked for Mussels, that i don't recommend, it's below average without taste. As Entree we ordered Mac& Cheese with truffle mushrooms and I should say it’s the best Mac & Cheese we ever tasted. You have some options to add to your Mac&Cheese, but the one I choose it’s an outstanding suggestion. My wife chose the Cedar Plank Salmon that was very good. My son also chose Mac&Cheese for kids.
For dessert, Baked apple Crisp, good.
Drink: Good selection of draft and bottle beers. A large list of wines
Service: Medium speed, good for the type of restaurant
Parking: Free
Average expense: around $110 (with tip) for a couple and one child

We arrived 10 minutes early an were told to wait outside until our reservation time. At the reservation time the hostess walked outside and cleaned the table we were standing next to off, and dropped a pile of menus in the center for us. The waitress was pleasant but the timing of every course was off. Soups and appetizers were served before our drinks arrived. The entire party of 8 had finished all appetizers before the waitress came back to ask if we wanted to order dinner. One member of the party ordered a salad with steak as an entree which was delivered almost immediately, at least 15 minutes before the remainder of the entrees.

Patio dining had mosquitoes so staff moved us indoors which we greatly appreciated.
Noise level inside somewhat loud due to music (from kitchen area?).
Food was good and server was attentive.

We normally love our dinners at Crave, but this one was just ok. Didn't feel up to their normal standard, but the dish we ordered was a "special" so might have just been a one time, not so great choice. Unfortunately, prices seem to have gone up, but that is happening everywhere right now due to inflated supply costs and availability, so I can't really say that I blame them. But the final number was about 25% higher than I would have expected, and unfortunately, didn't quite feel worth it this time. But the Mac n Cheese still lives up to expectations and their Moscow Mules are the best.
