Food was delicious and kitchen was sending food out at a fast pace. The cornbread and butter was sooo good! The cocktails were amazing also.

Crave has always been our "go to" for good food. Sadly they have taken so many of our favorites off the menu for whatever reasons, that we are being forced to re-evaluate. I don't profess to know how to run a restaurant but it seems to me if you have a good thing going, don't change it. While our meal last night was good, we were sad to find the "live" menu did not match their online menu. In fact had we known some of our favorite items were not available, we would probably have gone elsewhere.
They have gone to great lengths to have ample outdoor dining which we think is still important in the midst of the pandemic. This is a real plus for Crave. While we will return, we will remain a bit skeptical of menu postings.

When we arrived the hostess told us our table wasn’t ready. No problem, we’d get a cocktail at the bar. 20 minutes later my husband went back to find out about our table. We’d been forgotten. We were immediately seated then waited another 10 minutes before seeing our waitress. The food was good, but our meal was spoiled.

We had an early dinner reservation and was seated promptly. The staff was very friendly and the food was very good. We recommend the She crab soup which was very delicious and the cedar plank Salmon with grilled asparagus was excellent. I would definitely recommend.

Our party of 4 with our dog was sat immediately. The cocktails were great, I had the cucumber and mint mule. The she crab soup, truffle Mac and cheese, scallops and hanger steak were all amazing. The server was FANTASTIC!!

The portions are huge and I wish the server had been more knowledgeable. We could have ordered half of what we had if she had given us some advice. So here’s your heads up! The Mac n cheese is definitely good and super rich. One order serves 2 people. The salad was nice too. Finally we ordered a burger - medium, it was rare, again huge portion plenty for 2 but still pretty tasty obviously just would have preferred our cool temp was adhered too.

Server was not attentive but may have been because she had too many tables. No drink refills the entire meal. Except for bad grits during brunch, all other food was delicious. I recommend the Quinoa salad!

It was my husbands birthday. We arrived at 10:30 am and had outdoor seating. The knats drove us out and he was so disappointed, we left. Darn. We do like CRAVE.

Really disappointing. Server was too busy hanging out with her friends. Ordered the crab soup and it was served cold - I mentioned to server and she huffed away and brought a new bowl about ten minutes later, which was warm but had absolutely zero crab and was basically a warm bowl of cream. Mac and cheese was fine but soupy. Huevos and fried chicken were OK but not worth the price. Atmosphere was dingy and had loud top-50 pop blaring. Server basically disappeared once she dropped off the food - came back once to get paid and forgot to bring a box. Overall just really disappointing - a bunch of college kids home for the summer running the joint half-assed.

Crave overall was a good experience. Even if you have a reservation you still may end up at a high top as I did. The Hanger Steak was good but the salads were lacking. The sweet potato biscuits and maple honey butter were delightful and our server was so sweet and knowledgeable about the menu!

Server was very friendly and accommodating. Kitchen didn’t follow directions for several orders, one resulted in waiting for an entirely new order after all other meals were delivered. No accommodations made for kitchen errors or delays. Prices were high for the food and service received.

Food & cocktails were great! Both came out timely and perfect. I am picky about Mac & Cheese but tried their award winning M&C, and it was amazing! Everything was great from front off the house, the kitchen and our server Mia. We will definitely be back!

For a quiet setting for conversation with friends while enjoying a delicious meal prepared with care while being served by an attentive but not intrusive server this is a good choice. The menu is just right; enough choices but not too many which means, what they do is done well.

After requesting interior seating we were told we would have to sit outside by the road. Our waitress made herself extremely scarce. After an hour one of the managers finally had to bring us our food. The gnocchi was way over cooked and terrible. My steak was well done instead of medium rare. We were told there was a small kitchen fire. That doesn’t explain the poorly cooked food and the scarce waiter. We had the mac & cheese. It was not as good as we have had before. Crave is off the list as far as I’m concerned.

BAR: Asked for Hendricks and was told they have no premium brands of Gin only local brands, I tried one, terrible $8. BAD

Food: Had Brussel Sprouts. Came out slightly warm. Should have sent back, Not my Style Have had them before, they were great. DISAPPOINTED $12?

Had a Hamburger: Asked for Medium Well. Repeated it three times to server (lots of noise in Tent) I think she only heard Medium Came out Medium Rare. I went back. When it came back it was well (that's ok) but rest of party was done eating.

Just when I thought you were getting better, I had a night like that. DISAPPOINTING

Slow service on drinks when it was not busy at all. Kitchen was slow with food order. Server didn't know to pre-bus the table. Great atmosphere, but poorly trained staff. Perhaps a function of the difficulty in hiring nowadays. Likely a new staff.

Super excited to try this spot but truly disappointed when my food was presented. One of the item ordered was the sesame tuna, it was barely warm and it came over very plain rice that was cold, hard, and had no flavor. The drinks and Mac and cheese dish was good.
