Soup cool, mac fritters greasy and salmon taco mostly red cabbage. Not impressed. Server was slow (almost 2 hr lunch), but very pleasant. Too many other good restaurants in the area.

The service was very good and the manager was concerned because we did not like the appetizer; he gave us credit for the appetizer even when we did not expect him to do so.

Good food but was seated at a lousy table in front of the service area when there were many other tables open. Great waiter- food very good with the exception of the dessert- creme brûlée was terrible. I sent it back and got the skillet cookie which was great

Generous portions of food, however almost all entrees were extremely rich. We took half of our entrees home. Smaller portions could be less expensive. All sides that came with entrees were very rich, too rich, more vegetables without cheese or fried would be a nice option. Rib eye was not very good, all other entrees were great, just very rich.

Our server James was the most professional ever!!! Thought the food was a bit expensive. $36 for Oso bucco and $46 for swordfish. My macaroni n cheese was good but honestly too rich and runny. But we were delighted with our service.

We went to Crave on Christmas Eve; always reliably good food. We had the ribeye steaks and
they were very tasty. Unless you're under 40, I'd ask to leave the toppings off the mashed
potatoes, but I know some people like everything "loaded". It was a good choice for the low
key, not going into Charleston, time we wanted before a hectic day.

A quick and filling choice for an office lunch. Good variety on offer, all of which came fast, correct, and tasty. Portions are on the large side, especially the famous Mac n Cheese. Wait staff are laid back but helpful.

Very nice food and a lot of it. Wines are very reasonable with a decent selection. The service was outstanding. It’s a nice contemporary atmosphere, but many of the tables are crammed together in the center where it is quite loud. I suggest requesting a table or booth around the perimeter.

Great find on our way to the beach at IOP.

Appetizers were fantastic with healthy serving size. The mac and cheese is a meal. Entree menu offered good selection. Decent wine menu as well.

We'll stop again.

Crave has the best Mac & Cheese, and we added the bacon to make it extra special. The salmon is terrific, and you won’t be disappointed with the portion sizes. Our waiter was Greg, and he did an excellent job!

I somehow thought my 6:45 reservation was at 7:15, we arrived at 7:15 to the nicest host, I believe his name was Cory. We were promptly sat as Cory didn't mention how tardy we were.
Our server Matthew was spot on as we received wonderful service from start to finish. Our meals were simply delicious!! Cory stopped by to check on us and even recommended dessert,
we tried three and all were amazing!! We actually ordered the macaroni & cheese for Thanksgiving and to go twice during our stay. Thank you Crave kitchen for your ability to have a true staff with southern hospitality, awesome food and great memories.
