Stopped in for lunch after a meeting near Kiawah with coworkers. We all had something different off of the lunch menu. No one was disappointed. I had a seasonal lobster roll which was outstanding. The sides were slightly less exciting. Overall maybe a bit overpriced for what we had, but would return if in the area.

The "old" Crave is back for dinner--if only a few evenings per week. The changing "chalk board menu" has something for every taste..for me, the shrimp & grits are now the best on the island. The atmosphere is not as good as LOKAL in the Marina; but for my money, it's Crave all the way!

We found ourselves at this restaurant after a "Do Not Miss" recommendation from the Villa owner where we were staying at on Kiawah Island. He was right! This is a small little restaurant that doesn't look like a whole lot on the outside. We probably would have passed it by were it not for the Villa owner's recommendation. Do not... More

This small restaurant has a varied menu and brisk business for lunch. Many gourmet dishes are offered, however, the quality is just average. Seasonings and herbs are quite mild, while prices are a bit steep. Service is friendly and prompt.

A roadside stop for great southern food items. Recommended by friends some who live on Kiawah year round and by seasonal visitors, all reporting the same thing good food good service and quite reasonable prices. The meat loaf, batter dipped buttermilk chicken and all the pastries we have had are exceptional.

Food was expensive and not good. Some guy the woman working there knew came in, and they had a nasty fight the whole time we were there, making it very uncomfortable for us since it is a tiny restaurant.

My family went to Crave for our first meal in South Carolina. We were the first ones there, but the restaurant soon filled up. I had the fried chicken sandwich and it was so good. Our waiter couldn't have been nicer. If you're staying in Kiawah and don't feel like driving to Charleston for a great meal, I'd definitely recommend... More

So friendly and the chef is very accommodating to allergies. Hands down best shrimp and grits in Charleston. We had the chef (Zach) do a private party at our Kiawah home and perfection doesn't even do him or his work justice....his cuisine is second to none. You got to check this place out!

We ended up here by chance and we are glad we did. Odd little restaurant just off island. My expectations were low but in the end every one of us (13 people) loved our meal and were raving about it. We were there for breakfast and many of the dishes are heavy southern style but very tasty and interesting. Great... More
