Mac and cheese in paradise

I would happily go back and eat a large plate of Mac and cheese and finish my meal off with the Apple crisp as these were my favorite meal items! The mussels were hit the spot and I enjoyed dipping my bread in the white wine broth. My lobster farfalle was good, but not extraordinary. My husband's... read more

Another favorite of our art group! Their fish tacos are simple and straight forward but quite delicious. Generous serving size on all their lunches.

We had family in town for my Son-in-Law's birthday and we brought them to Crave for dinner. They really out-did themselves on this trip. The hostess brought us to our table where there was a card waiting in the middle for my son-in-law that had been signed by the entire staff wishing him a Happy Birthday. It's the little touches...

My girlfriends and I stopped by for dinner before heading out for a Bachelorette Party! We had the Mac & Cheese and it was AMAAAAZING! The manager found out we were a Bachelorette Party and ended up buying us dessert! Will definitely go back and highly recommend!

Our daughter invited us to brunch on our visit to mount pleasant. We started with the two for $5 mimosas which were delicious. More bubbly than juice. I ordered the steak and eggs and the steak was a perfect medium rare. The home fries were awesome. My husband ordered eggs Benedict and he said it was cooked perfectly and delicious.... More

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 before tip and took an extremely... 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
