We love coming here every time we visit hilton head! The server was great, and very friendly. The only slip up she had was forgetting to bring back a couple of drinks, nothing major. She brought them right away when we mentioned it. The food was delicious. I would recommend early dining, as prices are cheaper, and you get seated... More

Our food was delicious, but our server was not up to par. He could have been having an off day, but it really hurt the experience. Based on price and setup, I would suggest having a main server with an assistant to maintain drinks and other needs. The mushroom ravioli was very good. The cream sauce was scrumptious. My family...

Cranes has always been a favourite for early diners visiting Hilton Head. The early diner menu is good value and always includes Prime Rib cooked to hour taste. Well worth a visit.

We were a bit disappointed with Crane's; perhaps it just wasn't the right choice in an area that has so many unique eateries. It seemed like a steak house you could find almost anywhere. Good food, but nothing exceptional.

We went to Hilton Head for a three day get-away and we decided to stop at Crane's for a late dinner. We don't usually dine after 7:00 pm but due to our late arrival at Hilton Head we gave it a shot.. We arrived about 8:30 and we all were seated promptly. We did notice the Great Wine selection and... More

This was our first visit to Crane's. We have lived on HHI several years and never really heard much about Crane's from locals. We decided to visit on a Saturday in late August. The restaurant was crowded with couples and large groups. After deciding on the steaks we wanted we were taken back by the limited selections of sides. Steamed... More

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
