My 12 year old Granddaughter and I went to Crane's for a great meal. She likes Prime Rib so we went for the early bird. The price is right, the food is great, and the service even better. Dianne could not have treated Katie any nicer. She was very considerate and treated her like an adult. Always a good experience.

Food was good. Stake and fish plate were very good. We made reservation and did not have to wait but there was no one waiting to be sat. The only negative is that there is no view to outside while dinning.

My wife and I visited Cranes last night for dinner. We had a 5:15 reservation which allowed for the early bird menu option. We were warmly greeted as we came in and our server Diane was excellent. The restaurant is very well decorated with old photos and was very quiet and good for conversation. My brother and his wife opted... More

We went for my son's 20th birthday. We all enjoyed everything that we ordered - the steaks, the vegetables, the crab cake appetizer, the three cheese shrimp dip. The service was good and we will go back...

Absolutely awesome environment to walk into. Great service from the Hostess to our waiter Spencer! The food was absolutely fresh and delicious! Ordered the 22oz. Prime Rib, cooked perfect to medium rare! I will be coming back to eat here every stay at Hilton Head! I also dine at the Surf City Motel.

With a large party ordering over 6 different entrees, we consider it a miracle when we all loved our meals- but miracles happened here! The bread before dinner is Oprah worthy, we had exceptional service from Spencer, and the food was delicious. We will be back our next time to HH!

I got the oso bucco which was out absolutely the best I've ever had. The bone marrow was scrumptious. I really wanted to eat the bone with my fingers. But I was told not to. Definitely fine dinning

We had an early dinner at Crane's. The restaurant décor is very nice and our server was excellent. They offer a special between 5 and 6 p.m. which is well worth it if the items suit you. For instance, my husband got the prime rib, medium, perfectly cooked. It came with salad and mashed potatoes and a glass of wine.... More
