Not a Favorite in the area

Crave is an average venue at best. In my opinion the interior is dark and needs cleaning as it is extremely stale and smells of old beer. Outdoor seating is nothing special, just tables and chairs on the sidewalk. The food is average and pricey. Lunch for two entrees and iced teas was $34... read more

This was our third trip to Crave and they certainly did not disappoint. The Mac & Cheese truly was delectable but our main dishes were all amazing. I had the Scallops with Lobster risotto and my husband had his usual - the Chicken Marsala. We had a reservation for 6 of us and were seated promptly and politely. We had... More

My husband and I both enjoyed our meal here. He had the Mac &Cheese and I had the sweet potato fries. I thoroughly enjoyed the almond-crusted tilapia with the baked apple. Our server Lisa was also terrific. I would recommend this restaurant.

Wow, what a menu. Everything is so well prepared and beautifully plated. The fries are outstanding. The BLT is like none I've ever had. The others with me also had sandwiches and all were great. You are sure to get a delicious meal here and the service is excellent too.

We went to Crave to celebrate the purchase of our new home and found it to be out of this world! Our waitress Melinda was personable and helpful and was willing to offer suggestions given it was our first time there. I had the scallops and lobster rissotto and they were by far the best I've ever had! The rest... More

This place has the absolute best apple crisp you could ever order. I ordered the apple crisp and a drink almost every night I was in town. Crave is located walking distance from Homewood suites in mt pleasant and has a very trendy bar with great bar tenders.

Had dinner there last night with my sister and a friend. We tried several things. The food and service were amazing. There was not one thing that was not perfect. The scallops on lobster risotto were the bomb. Hanger steak with spinach and walnuts, and I believe cherries was tender and had amazing flavor.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. I'm not going to lie, it was expensive. But worth every penny. The food was unbelievably good. Sooo delicious. The wait staff was very tentative. He only made one mistake but corrected it quickly. Go and enjoy this place.
