Tried brunch for the first time at Crave. My wife had the Monte Cristo & I had the Skillet. We both loved our selections which were suggested by our server Richard. The food was great & the service was even better. We will be coming back soon. Please ask for Richard when you visit Crave.

My husband had mahi that was beautifully presented and delicious as well. Our server, Ellie, was very professional and knowledgeable. For lunch, my husband had the salad nicoise--lovely! I had the BLT southern... More

Our family (2 adult foodies and 2 willing kids) visited Crave while vacationing in nearby Isle of Palms. The menu was broad enough. The flavors were great. The portions were generous. The staff was welcoming. Our server, Joel, was attentive and accommodating. We loved the complimentary sweet potato muffins with maple butter. The black bean and corn soup starter was... More

We're locals in our popular tourist town, and rather spoiled by the variety of dining available. Hands down, Crave is one of our favorite restaurants for dinner, lunch or Sunday brunch. Tonight we enjoyed another superb dinner served by Harrison. The short ribs were divine, the martinis perfect...I only wish we'd had room for dessert. If you're planning a beach... More

We have eaten at Crave many times for brunch or breakfast. This was our first time there for dinner. It was fabulous. The presentation was superb and the meal was even better. Kudos to the portion size as well. I was well fed and I had enough to enjoy again tomorrow. Our server, Harrison, was attentive and informative. He really... More

My family, including grandparents and two young children, visited Crave to end our week-long vacation on Isle of Palms. Every aspect of our dinner was superb, from obtaining last-minute reservations from Anthony, to our wonderful server, the delicious food, the thoughtfully provided complimentary dessert to-go, and the impressive follow-up afterward. I had visited Crave with my children over spring break... More
