“Fun atmosphere, food underwhelming”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

Great atmosphere. Menu looked really good too. Some of the food was ok, but the ribs were cold. The exotic appearing dishes on the menu ended up being pretty boring and average.

“What a find! Must go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

We were driving by on Jacksonville Beach Blvd and the KC Crave caught our attention.
From outside the place is dark and somewhat intriguing, like it could go in every way, but once inside the feeling is of a "new happening" place. Food was delicious, absolutely incredible! Fresh, creative, and of big size. Drinks were very good, service was on point and the price more than fair! Loved this place. Highly reccomended!

“GREAT new place at the beach!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We really needed this type of restaurant at the beach. The decor is contemporary with lots of outdoor seating too. Love the food and they offer small sharing plates so you can try many different apps or entrees for the table. Everything that was presented was delicious!! Try it and you won't be disappointed!!

“Bourbon Sliders and a Crave salad...YUM!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I had the Bourbon Sliders and a side Crave salad. For 'small plates' the portions were good size. The sliders were not nearly as messy as they look, which is good considering what you would wear to a place like this. They were delish! I could not pick out one flavor in the sliders, but you could tell there were multiple flavors that complimented each other very well. The salad was the same story. It had candied walnuts, seedless grapes, a very unique yogurt dressing, and several other awesome ingredients. The decor and atmosphere was lovely. The reserved tables, upstairs, are only available in 2 hour blocks, so while we wanted to lounge around the table we were told there was another reservation behind us. They do not do reservations for the regular tables downstairs. The upstairs tables have taps on them with 2 beer options. Our waitress was nice, but the 'how we started/specials of the evening' lecture was a bit long. I love that they grow some of their own ingredients out back. All in all, it was a very nice experience. (They are also doing a 50 shades of Crave charity masquerade ball in December…I can’t wait!)

“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Loved this new restaurant. Was very busy so we went upstairs and there happened to be two people leaving their bar seats so we took those to have a drink. We ended up ordering our meals there too and was a nice place to sit afterall. They have a one of a kind martini list and the ones we ordered were great!! The meals are presented as tapas-they are sharing sizes. So we ordered a appetizer and two mains to share for 2 people. The food was amazing!! Love this place and will be back every chance I can!! When it gets late they do have live music as well and the guy singing the night we were there was very good.
