About the restaurant
Hilton Head Island's destination for beef & seafood lovers, Crane's Tavern & Steakhouse serves only the finest USDA Prime Grade Beef & fresh local seafood. An old English bar & heart of pine floors create the setting with warm, inviting service & an award-winning wine list.
The restaurant represents 4 generations & over 100 years of restaurateurs in the Crane family dating back to 1908, when an Irish immigrant, Frank Crane founded Crane's Tavern in Philadelphia. After prohibition Frank's son, Francis & his brothers opened the famed establishment at 333 Queen Lane, where his son, Hank worked until 1969. That year Hank ventured out on his own & opened a Crane's Tavern in Ambler, PA. & then purchased the Surf City Hotel on Long Beach Island, NJ creating yet another establishment with the Crane namesake. In 1999 he & his daughter, Beth Anne opened Crane's Tavern & Steakhouse on Hilton Head Island, SC where it has become a local favorite

I have been to Crane’s several times and make it a point to have dinner each time I visit Hilton Head. Each time, it’s fantastic. The service is superb. This visit, my server, Charlie, albeit very busy with other tables, made each interaction personal and makes you feel as if you’re only table he has. The food is always on point. I changed up and got the crab cake for an appetizer. The absolute best crab cake I’ve ever had. Followed by a ribeye. Usually, a steak may need help (sauce) to make it good. The ribeye was cooked to perfection and needed nothing. It was delicious. Eating here will not certainly not disappointment!

About the restaurant
River House does have a dressy casual dress code consisting of no shorts, flip flops, baseball hats or tank tops in the dining room for the gentlemen. Comparable attire for the ladies. Children under 16 are exempt. We do offer complimentary pants to guests that may need them.
River House corkage policy is a maximum of 3 bottles per reservation without management consent at $35 per bottle.
River House has a 24-hour cancellation and No-Show Policy consisting of $25 per person plus a 18% SVC Charge.

In the South, there’s an intimate connection between the table and the land. Our fertile soil feeds corn and cattle. The palmettos provide cover for quail and game. And the ocean provides its bounty with the incoming tide. The River House is a culinary celebration of this relationship and our professed love for the land and waters of the Lowcountry.

I’ve been to Nick’s multiple times over the years. It never disappoints and will keep coming back. Food is delicious and served quickly if you’re in a hurry and will also slow it down if you want to enjoy. Great place.
