Dined here last month, will not go back---ever. As locals, we were underwhelmed by a dining experience here several years ago. Decided to return for a birthday. My husband called a few days before & made a reservation. There would have been no need as there were several empty tables when we arrived. The decor in this place has not... More

Ok we went for the steaks, my sister-in-law had filet mignon. It was perfect. I had blackened Grouper with lobster risotto. The only complaint was I got broccoli. I asked for their signature creamed spinach and our waiter brought it. Didn't touch the broccoli. We got the Marscapone cheesecake with hazelnut crust to go. Heaven!!! A must if you are... More

First time at Cranes along with another couple who had heard good things about the restaurant. Ambiance is casual (but white table cloths) and a small but cozy wooden bar area. Each of us had something different and food, overall, was quite good: my Oso Buco, delicious; ribeye steak, reported to be excellent and cooked to perfection; but my husband's... More

Extensive winelist, and I must say, the Ribeye comes highly recommened as my son who is a "steak expert" could not stop raving about his meal. Ambiance is ok and unfortunately as I am not a big steak eater I can't compare Cranes against other steak and seafood places on the island.

The food was mediocre for the price. Very expensive and we both left hungry. Steak had to be sent back. Will not return.

We had a reservation at 7 pm, we ordered the tavern role, two salads, spinach and wedge, filet, prime rib and the pecan caramel brownie desert. It is with rarity I can say of a restaurant that I enjoyed all of the food! From start to finish we found everything to be great! The restaurant started to fill up when... More

We all ordered steaks... Filets and prime rib. Everything tasted great. Little skimpy on the sides. Vegetable of the day was cooked carrots that were good... But you only got four little carrots -- That and a dollop of mashed potatoes. It was all served on a huge plate... So it made the dinner look really skimpy. Again all tasted... More

We went to Cranes had a few drinks at the bar prior to dinner and got great service from very nice bartender. The friendly and good service continued with our waiter. Steaks and salads are very good. Wine list is strong also. Will absolutely go back next time in hilton head. We also liked the warm feeling of the decor.

Had a wonderful family dinner at Crane's. Both the food and the service are excellent. I had the best filet ever. My husband enjoyed his shrimp and grits. French fries are very good. Excellent fudge brownie sundae and cheesecake. Pricey but definitely worth it.
