“So good we wnt twice”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Suzanne and I spent four soggy days in Hilton Head. One of the rays of sunshine came from Cranes. We had been recommended to the restaurant by a local we met at a beach bar and he gave us good advice.
The dining area was quite dark on our first visit but everything else- service, food, ambience- was excellent. It got better on our second visit.
A special mention goes out to Geri, our waitress the first time and host the second time. She was wonderful.

“Great Dinner”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is a very nice restaurant in HH. If your are looking for the upscale chain steakhouse--this is not it. That said, the food is very good, cooked properly and you have many choices. Not a steak fan--try the fish as there are multiple options. This is pricier than the steakhouses that have 1000 locations but worth it. The service was great but not over the top. Would we come back--absolutely and only say it when we (my wife and I) mean it.

“Average”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

We ate here once and I have to say although this restaurant looks adorable from the outside, the food is very so-so for the price. My husband had the prime rib and I had a steak, both nothing out of the ordinary. There are much better restaurants for the price on HHI, just look at the reviews on TA. :)

“Amazing!!!!!”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

They serve only USDA prime steaks and boy were they delicious! Everyone in our group had a fantastic meal! I had the filet mignon with blue cheese sauce and I can't wait to go back for another round. Deeeelicious!

“Knockout steaks”
Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

Great evening spent at Crane Tavern. Good sized menu, all sounded delicious. I had French onion soup, which wasn't in the traditional style, but was delicious nonetheless, followed by seared tuna. The tuna was really good quality and the honey soy veg excellent, was unmoved by wasabi sauce, prefer normal wasabi. I tasted the rib eye steak, which was unbelievable. Wines were great, but cocktails were hit and miss. Dessert was fantastic, massive portion of delightful cheesecake. The lady serving was warm and genuine, knew her menu and drinks and took.good care of us. Would go back on a return, eat steak and drink red wine. Hope to do so soon. Cheers
