We went for our wedding anniversary. Very nice place and perfect atmosphere. The service was great. Server was very friendly.

Since we were staying at the homewood suites, we figured we'd try Crave -- very nice, pleasant service, like all restaurants we visited. I got a huge bowl of garlicky, brothy mussels that would have served three people and spouse got the mac and cheese which was heavenly (we ended up splitting that, too, because the serving was huge). Most... More

I had the hamburger and sweet potato fries. Wow, the burger tasted so good and you could tell the fries were homemade. My husband had regular fries which were also homemade and I forget his actual meal! whoops! Anyhow, would eat here again

Started the evening out with a fantastic cocktail: Cucumber Collins. Then enjoyed delicious appetizers: Spicy Tuna and Bean Soup. The Lobster Farfalla entrée was great, and the Cedar Plank Salmon was very good. Wonderful service completed the experience.

Crave is one of the best restaurants in the Charleston area. The Chef-Management is very creative,the servers pleasant and efficient, and the managers attentive. It has an active bar in the front of the restaurant,but the food has the starring role.

Restaurant was across from our hotel. Excellent Mac and Cheese but it's a big portion. Wife had salmon and I had short ribs. Food was excellent and service was excellent. Very friendly staff. Portions were large. We had early dinner here.

We had the pleasure of having brunch here about a week ago. We dined outdoors and had an excellent server! The breakfast portions are huge!! I had the French toast and it was awesome. My husband had a breakfast platter with an assortment of yummy items. They also give you these rolls while you wait and they are the best... More

We brought our picky picky daughter-in-law and grandchildren with us and there was not a single complaint to be had from anyone. We started off with a Spicy Tuna appetizer (thank you for the recommendation, Jonathan!) and things only got... More
