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.

We were all familiar with Cranes establishments, having lived in Philly and NJ most of our lives. Promptly seated in the handsome room our friendly server, Diane, brought good sized drinks and wine. Soon after entrees arrived: three orders of prime rib and one shrimp & grits. The real beef lover among us said it was likely the best prime... More

This is a small restaurant, off the beaten path. Somewhat pricy, but excellent food and service. If you want a nice, quiet meal, with a great steak....try dining here.

We've been to Crane's Tavern on several annual visits and each experience has been exceptional. On our short list of favorites. If you're hungry for steak, a great meal and value.

I've been a full time resident of Hilton Head for 12 years and finally went to this amazing restaurant for my birthday tonight. Why did I wait so long? To start, customer service is exemplary in this place. Doesn't matter if you are a tourist or a full time resident. Everyone is treated as a special guest. All the food... More

Top of the line steak. No question! Nice, conservative atmosphere. Great wine list. Good service. We don;t go there all the time but several times a year.

Well, mixed thoughts. We heard great things about Cranes and were well pleased with most items. We took advantage of the early bird. Several of us had the prime rib, and you can cut it with your fork. Great. One person had the chicken Marsala . The sauce had a great taste, however very watery in consistency. No idea if... More

Went to Cranes as a guest of a local regular and was extremely impressed by everything, from the greeting of the staff, to the noise level, to the ambiance, and of course the food. I had the sirloin steak, my wife had teh filet, with scalloped potatoes and an incredible spinach side. The service was attentive but not rushed and... More
