..but only slightly. For starters I ordered the "Worlds Most Awarded" Mac and Cheese. It was fresh, it was warm and it had fresh cheeses. Other than that it was fairly uninspired and almost out of place for a semi fine dining establishment like this. It's not anything to rave about as I have other Mac and Cheeses with similarly...

My husband, 5 year old son and I had dinner here in November on a Friday night. We did not have a reservation but we're able to sit at a table in the bar area while we waited. So delicious!! My husband ordered Salmon & I had the Tilapia. Both were excellent! The drinks were yummy too.

The front desk staff suggested Crave to us for lunch. It was a wonderful suggestion. Their mac and cheese is amazing. The chef has won the Charleston Mac and Cheese cook-off challenge five years in a row!! He deserves the trophy! We enjoyed chicken and rice soup, a BLT with pecan mayo on sour dough and a chicken wrap. Everyone... More

This was our second time at Crave and we took friends this time. I love that there are some gluten free options for me. I had the skirt steak with bing cherries and spinach. The steak was a bit grainy, but the flavors were good. My husband enjoyed his pork cutlet, served like a wiernerschinetzel. The other couple ordered the... More

Dined here for late lunch. Had a nice table outside on a beautiful day. Service was fast. Large portions, lots of options. Good salads, good mac & cheese dish, sandwiches and sweet potato fries. Would recommend for lunch.

Great food. Salmon was great with a hot salad with artichokes. Only issue was that both my wife and I had to send them back to be cooked longer. The atmosphere is nothing to write about. The high ceilings gives it a cold feeling with the bar just over an 8' wall. Staff was great.

I arrived in Charleston on Halloween and Crave is my traditional first place to dine. Crave has never disappointed and Halloween night, the food and drink surpassed my expectations....... The Halloween themed diablo martini was to die for...who would have thought jalipeno in a martini! Delicious. Our meals were just as yummy. My friend the halloween version of Pad Thai.... More
