I ate there February of 2014-the date selection does not allow older than June 2014. I order my favorite steak, Prime RIb. When it was served, I immediately noticed that it was cooked by the slice. I wish the waiter had told me that the Prime Rib at Cranes is not slow roasted by the whole rib. I cannot imagine... More

If you're under 50, go somewhere else. Food was average. Typical steakhouse fare. Server could only take 4 orders at a time for some reason for our party of 8. Nice enough but there has to be better places.

Although the food was good and we enjoyed our meal it was not nearly as memorable as the first trip we made to this restaurant in fact it was so good before that we ate there two nights in a row . Something we had never done before . Well things change and unfortunately that's what happened here they got... More

My wife and I went to dinner at Cranes. I had the blackened grouper and she had a chicken meal. Both meals were very good and I had the French Onion Soup as an appetizer (excellent). The service was very good, and we were happy to see many pictures of historic Philadelphia given that we live just north of the... More

Visited with a large group of friends , 16 in all. The greeting was friendly and true. Almost all of our group had steaks of a varying cut and choice of cooking. My Rib Roast was probably the best I have ever eaten and not a single criticism was heard from any one within the group. It was a very... More

My reaction was positive from the moment I saw the white tablecloths. We went for the early bird (5-6PM) and it was obvious that it was attractive. Diana, our server, was very professional and described the daily specials and took drink orders. Ordered a shrimp dip (served w/ nacho chips) and then tilapia and chicken breast. Very nice presentation and... More

We have eaten at Cranes the last three times we have been on the HHI. Each and every time the service and the meals have been great.

this is a special occasion restaurant unless you are very well off. We had filets and you could cut them with your fork. Keep up the great job

We have been here a number of times and always sit at the bar----sometimes because it is the only choice and the rest of the time because we like the bar menu and the bartender---and the people you meet there. The service at the bar is always great, the menu is limited but usually has the french dip, a great... More
