What can I say more Crave was OUTSTANDING!
One of the best brunches ever. Excellent drinks and superb food., especially eggs Benedict w/crabcakes. Our server Madison was terrific. Absolutely recommend this place.

This good is horrible and extremely over priced. Service was fine but she didn’t bother with the fact that none of us ate our food. She was obviously use to the experience. Went to the red drum the next night and it was amazing food and was actually a tad less expensive somehow. Do not waste your time with Crave!

My sisters and I were on Vaca in Isle Of Palms and this was our final night and our best meal of the entire trip. The scallop dish was my favorite, we shared three different dishes and loved them all.

The server was great but the food...not so great. Not impressed at all with the award winning Mac and cheese— tasted like it was made from a box. I had the sweet potato chicken salad - it was ok. My friend had the age crab soup and said it was the fishiest she crab soup she ever tasted. The apple crisp dessert wasn’t crisp at all but the ice cream was good. The sangria was tasty. Overall, I may go back for cocktails but not the food.

This is a terrific place to eat, with a large outdoor space. The food was excellent, as was the service. Our only hesitation was that the server's mask kept falling below his nose and he really didn't make any effort to keep it covering his nose and mouth. These days, that is important for customers like myself who are trying to maintain some of ordinary life while being as safe as possible.

Excellent food and service. Shrimp and grits entree was one of the best renditions I've had in the Low Country. Bartender's signature old fashioned was impressive. Will definitely return!

My granddaughter and I were treated to a very lovely dinner. The staff was extremely attentive, and the food was excellent. (I had the salmon; it was really good.) My granddaughter loves the mac/cheese, so it was a great meal.
Thank you, everyone at Crave.

They close early on Sundays however take reservations up until close. Which is very confusing when booking from this app. We tried to cancel the reservation, however the only way to do that is to call. We called 4 times and they did not answer the phone. Now we will receive a $25 cancellation fee. Which is not fair since we tried to cancel within 5 minutes of booking. Extremely frustrating situation.

I wanted to like this place, I really did. I usually never dislike a place but I wasn’t crazy about this one. The high points: great ambiance, cute place with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, and the hostess was very kind and helpful, I used the open table app to book reservations, I arrived a bit early and they still sat us, which was a plus.


Low points: service & food.

My service wasn’t good at all. My server was nice and friendly but I could tell my waiter was either weeded or just concerned with other tables. From waiting to be greeted to waiting on our check, it took awhile each time for our server to come by even though I saw him at other tables the majority of us waiting. Once the food arrived it was plated very nicely and looked tasty but the shrimp and grits were just lacking... my home made version is better. The she crab soup would have been great but there was hard crab shell pieces in almost every bite. My boyfriend got the Mac n cheese which would have been great but the noodles were a tad undercooked.

I am all about splurging on a decadent
Dinner with great service. Maybe the night I went wasn’t their best but $88 for 2 people doesn’t sit well considering it lacked the two components that make that price point acceptable: food and service.

Our wait was nothing we got there and were taken straight back but once inside our waitress kept telling us about how much money it was going to be and made us feel awkward like we didn’t “belong there” we also were not impressed by their Mac and cheese the pasta was hard and my rib eye was a bit burnt. Will not be going back anytime soon, it was definitely not worth the price.

We are in town due to fathers passing and decided to catch a bite outside due to COVID. The place was not busy at all so we took a seat at the bar. John took care of us and made our time there to get a break from funeral planning and family worth it. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful restaurant and the crab cake appetizer was delicious. Our meals weren't too good. The 'award-winning' mac-n-cheese was not all that good. Noodles were thick & it was more of a stove top version, not baked. The side item crab cake taste like it was different than the appetizer. It was like a frozen crab cake, where the appetizer version was like handmade. Our servers were awesome & very accommodating.

My husband and I drove into town late, and we were their last seating at 9:30. Our waitress, Kat, was so warm and welcoming! She never made us feel like we were keeping her at work late. The food was OMG delicious! My husband ordered the fried chicken with collards and potatoes. Someone’s grandma has to be super proud bc the collards were TO DIE FOR. I ordered the salmon poke bowl, which was also amazing, but I was too distracted by the chicken and collards! We will def be back to try their famous Mac n cheese! I highly recommend this gem!!
