My husband & I ate here this week. He had a ribeye steak that he loved & didn't even have any fat that needed to be cut off. It was the steak recommended by our server that turned out to be a good suggestion. I had the stuffed pork chop. I would have liked more stuffing & found the gravy... read more

We went back for a special night out after our first experience. The atmosphere, the food and the service were all top shelf. The first time, we went two of us just had appetizers, the Crab Cake and the Tavern Roll. The Tavern Roll was out of this world. The other two had Meat Loaf and the Fish of the... More

I like steak houses but have only been able to go when on business because my wife won't go to a steakhouse. I live in Hilton Head but have never been to Crane's for the above reason. I did recently go with 2 friends and when at a Steakhouse one orders steak. I must say compared to the good large... More

After reading several reviews for Crane’s Tavern on Hilton Head Island, it was with some trepidation that my wife and I agreed to accept the invitation of another couple and join them there for an early Friday evening dinner in late March 2015. Fortunately, the only resemblance our experience had to some of the distinctly negative reviews was the unsmiling,... More

Although we had dined here previously, we will NOT be dining at Crane's again. Our waiter was rude, and not tipping him was not an option because of the added-in gratuity for the size of our group. At least we had the pleasure of not tipping him additionally as we would have done had his service been exemplary. He was... More

This place is beyond a joke. I have specifically chosen to wait a few days before giving this review as I wanted to cool down some when typing. My friend has already beaten me to the punch and wrote her own stunning review of this island local gem and I can attest to every word being true. From the second... More

The service was absolutely horrible!! It was an experience I couldn’t believe was happening. I have never written a review before but I couldn’t wait to write this one. I arrived with my friend who was not hungry. When our waitress asked us for our orders my friend said nothing for her and the waitress seemed annoyed. When we ordered... More

We wanted a good steak when we arrived on the island! At the suggestion of the hotel we were staying at we tried Cranes! We were not disappointed! Wonderful atmosphere, great waitress and food was superb! Definitely, would go again. Price was a little pricey, but worth it!
