Mike reopened Crave Smokehouse serving fantastic smoked meats! The brisket, bbq, and chicken are all fabulous. The sides are great as well. Dont forget the tomato pie, cant be beat! Eat in or take out you cant go wrong.

Well, hungry from a 4 hour road trip and not wanting to eat in the village by the hotel. So we decided to try this place. What a mistake. We should have been tipped off by the group of younger people that got up and left abruptly when we arrived. Not thinking much we sat down. There was no greeting,... More

Still great entrees BUT inconsistent portions. Peach pie was good but for $6.00 pretty small. The tomato pie at CRAVE is one of my favorites. Each pie is cooked and served in its own pie pan but the portions are nowhere near the same. The flavor is however terriffic. Back to the deserts we have not found them to be... More

Just visited Crave with family while vacationing on Kiawah. Very good fresh/local food. The mussels were fab, and the shrimp & grits were perfect. Also very good fried oysters! Yes its small, and a bit warm, but the food is certainly worth it. Would love to come back for brunch.

6 reviews 5.0 star rating 7/11/2016 "Unbelievable" falls short of how excellent this small, unassuming place is. Don't let the exterior fool you. This was the best Shrimp & Grits in the Charleston / Kiawah Island area. Period. End of story. Best advice is to make a reservation in advance, as they only have a small number of tables. The...

My husband & I were leaving Seabrook Island after spending a week there for vacation and that morning it was raining "cats & dogs." We had planned on going further up the rode to get some breakfast but when we passed Crave early that morning and saw the OPEN sign, we had to stop! BOY, AM I GLAD THAT WE... More
