Crave Kitchen & Cocktails
We vacation on IOP every Winter. We tried numerous area restaurants and Crave continues to be our favorite “Go To” spot to dine. Excellent food and friendly efficient staff.
The food was very good. The sautéed spinach served with the hangar steak was excellent. The Mac and cheese is a must have when you visit.
Our server, Rae, was outstanding. She was professional while warm and friendly. She was very attentive without being being overbearing. I would request her next time we are in.
Valentines Day ... service was friendly and professional ... food was delicious ... a busy night
Normally we have enjoyed this restaurant but we went on Valentines night and it was a big mistake. They had crammed in extra tables and it was very crowded and chaotic. Our server tried hard and was apologetic but the experience felt rushed and hectic. If we choose to go back, it won't be on a holiday night.
Great experience! Service and food were impeccable. I was very pleased
Colin- Great waiter!
Delightful lunch at Crave. Prompt, attentive service. Some menu items change with the seasons - which is a good thing, but our waiter forgot to tell us about some of the changes. Regardless, the lunches were great - fresh salads and fresh dressings. The Mac N Cheese is outstanding - and I'm not a big Mac N Cheese fan. Recommend, especially for lunch.
Walked into almost empty restaurant, waited 15 mins for hostess to acknowledge us as she took four to go orders..
Waiter nice, asked a few menu questions, thought Pancetta was beef. Food only ok.
Crave has a wide range of price points and food variety. The service was great. It is quiet enough for conversation with eight people at a table to hearing everyone. Parking is easy. And I have never had bad food there.
Mac and cheese is a must try. Food was good. Place was crowded when we had brunch.
Family brunch that included our 2 year old granddaughter. Service was great and everyone’s meal was fine. Huge chicken and waffle entree.
They were super accommodating and we go there every Friday It’s our place 💕
Always dependably good! Colin was a great server!
Music was too loud. Had no Gluten-free Menu or any indication on regular menu of what items were GF or could be made GF. Very limited GF choices. What I was able to eat was good. My lunch companions enjoyed the shrimp tacos. They did give us a free dessert as we were celebrating 75th birthday.
We visited on a Sunday at 1:00 pm. Although they offered a brunch menu, only two our our four diners ordered from it. One had the Mediterranean Omelet, with the red bliss home fries. The fries were not like any home fries we have ever had--they were deep fried, and not to our taste, but our grandson, who was with us was happy to take them home. Grandson and wife split chicken and waffles and mac and cheese--and they both ended up taking some home
I ordered the mac and cheese with pulled pork. It was excellent, and even with everyone trying some of it, we ended up taking some home.
Overall great food, award winning mac and cheese, and very generous servings, even for a a very athletic 26 old guy and his very pregnant wife. We all took some home.
We had a large group for a birthday. We felt welcome and all of our group that had food allergies were taken care of in a kind manner. Our server was fantastic. Thank you for a great day!
The birthday person received flowers and a free dessert. how nice!!
Lovely restaurant and great food! Drinks were excellent. Had the chicken marsala which was one of the best that I have ever had! Risotto was yummy! Husband had the fried chicken which he said was excellent as well. Had the mac n cheese as an appetizer - it was good - good flavor but the pasta could have been done just a bit more. Overall an excellent experience and great food! Would definitely go back!
I had their famous mac and cheeses and it did not disappoint. The cheese was rich, thick and creamy and my husband thought the rib eye was delicious!
Crave is one of our favorite places in Mount Pleasant. It never disappoints
Wonderful dining experience with friends. Highly recommended!
Mac n cheese while delicious, was somewhat heavy for a main course. Would be perfect for a side dish or to share. The fried chicken was unbelievable!!
Our server Kat was outstanding!!!! As well as the food
We we’re there for brunch. The staff were all friendly, and the restaurant was very clean.
The drinks were the best ever, the food delish in a very relaxing atmosphere. We will most certainly be going back - sooner, please, lol!!
I Highly recommend that you visit this establishment.
Loved the Lobster Risotto with Scallops!!!!. Staff was great and would definitely go back.
Very nice place! Food was good and service was excellent. We enjoyed Sunday Brunch here and will be back!
Very enjoyable evening! Great experience overall
Great service and a great atmosphere. The food, especially the Mac n cheese, was amazing
Overall experience was excellent. We were promptly seated, our waited was very accomodating and professional. The service was very good. We found the menu to be just what we wanted, especially since my wife has recently started a dietary plan, and she loved the salmon entree. We were able to easily converse with our guests as the noise level in the restaurant was low. We will have no problems in returning to Crave in the near future.
Crave has a great menu, everything from short rib Mac & cheese to wood plank salmon! Food is always good although the last 2 times I have eaten there my salmon was under cooked, (I ask for medium). Service is good!
Second time I’ve been here...same excellent service both times and southern comfort food that can’t be beat. Highly recommend the risoto and the fried Brussels sprouts...awesome!
Four if us had lunch and had a difficult time talking because the country music was so loud.
Our go to place for special occasion. Complimentary champagne and desert. Great food with generous portions. Very attentive servers.
Great brunch spot! Our server Tyler was wonderful, the shrimp and grits divine. It was a nice place to get together with friends and not feel rushed.
Patrick was a very professional, friendly and knowledgeable server and very attentive. Our MahiMahi and Salmon were overcooked, but flavorful; we just prefer not have overcooked fish. The Cobb Salad was good, but just rated because of the overcooked fish entrees. We will try another time. Good staff, wine menu and atmosphere.
someone used a little bit too much salt on the top of the salmon, but the whole meal was delicious
New Year’s Eve
My husband’s steak was nothing but grissle. He was told it would be taken off the bill as he no longer had any appetite for something else but when bill came it had NOT been comped. Finally after a 2nd discussion with mgm it was.
I couldn’t find anything on the menu that appealed to me...hardly any seafood other than fish yet we are so close to water. Finally settled on chicken that was ok but not what I want on New Year’s or any time we go out. We used to eat here all the time and it was great but NOT ANY MORE. Since change in ownership it has definitely gone down hill. We will NOT be back.
served the wrong entree. When it was finally served. the fish had been reheated. And was dry and tasteless!
While the service and the food were good. The prices charged for the meager surf and turf and the lamb shank were exorbitant.
The mac and cheese and short ribs are amazing. Staff where helpful and friendly. This place has a relaxed vibe and is perfect if you want to talk to someone. Being from the UK we wish we had a crave locally to us!!
