that we go to this great find. Affordable, great cuisine and music outside weather permitting. We picked here because it had been awhile since visiting and taking Mom out for a nice meal and wanted a good energy place. Crave offers this in spades. Great meal, affordable and a great atmosphere. I had the Milanese, my girlfriend the chicken special... More

Bloody mary was highlight of meal. Menu is tired and uninventive. Had a hard time finding anything I wanted to eat from the menu. Not very many healthy choices. Bread came with our check, instead of before the meal. Never got comfortable during our visit. I won't be craving Crave.

My husband and I had Sunday brunch here and we're underwhelmed. The service was slow and not very friendly. The brunch menu is limited and the food is just average. My husband had the special with eggs Benedict with fried green tomatoes and crabmeat. The tomatoes were bland and the crab was definitely not lump crabmeat. My rustic skillet with... More

My husband and I ate lunch here twice while vacationing in the area. This gourmet restaurant is right across from the Homewood Suites in Seaside Farms. They were even able to accommodate my gluten allergy by providing Udi's gluten-free buns on the sandwiches/burgers. Would highly recommend!

My husband and I decided to check out Crave since it was in walking distance of our hotel...it was the absolute best decision we made! We stopped in for Sunday Brunch, I had the amazing Chicken & Waffles, I highly recommend to you all and my hubby had a burger that was also very good. I definitely plan to eat... More

Had dinner here on Easter Sunday. Ordered off of the menu. Started with a bib lettuce salad that was large, artfully displayed and delicious. Then had an equally delicious chicken Marsala dish. Around the table, my family enjoyed a number of appetizers and entrees and everyone was quite pleased with their selections. The macaroni and cheese drew a number of... More

The quality of ingredients in the food at Crave is hard to match. We've eaten here twice in a month and both meals were impeccable. For brunch today, I had bagel and lox that completely hit the spot. My husband's burger was impressive in size, taste and presentation. We crave Crave!

We've been to Crave many times, but service on this visit was dreadful. Menu needs more vegetarian items. Our waiter couldn't even offer suggestions, such as a vegetable plate.

We have been to Crave several times. When family is visiting from out of state it serves as the kind of restaurant that can meet the needs of everyone. Adults can enjoy very nice selections of adult choices including beverages, apps, and entrees and at the same time they accommodate children, and even grandchildren. When it's just the two of...
