This is a rather small restaurant and can be difficult to find, but atmosphere is lovely and relaxing. Beef is prime and well prepared and presented. Our service was prompt and courteous.

I took 22 of my clients on February 3. I called a few days before and got a reservation for 8:00 PM. When we arrived we were quickly seated. Spencer did a wonderful job taking care of my clients. A couple of my clients requested sweet tea (we are in the the south) Spencer explained that they only served unsweetened... More

Went for Early Bird, encouraged to see lots of diners there. Nice atmosphere, seated promptly, and the service was very good. But I was disappointed in the food. Cheddar cheese grits had little flavor. Chicken breast was a bit dry, and bacon slaw topping was unappealing. Green beans were fresh and good. My wife's meal, salmon cakes, was better --... More

Had the early bird special, grouper, 2 vegetables, bread, and you get a glass of wine with it....had several other specials before 6 pm but you have to sit at bar. Friends had french dip sandwiches, had to take doggie bag home, came with very good fries.

My brother was in from North Dakota and wanted a prime rib. Crane's is known for their meats. It came exactly as he ordered it and he loved it. I thought there was a little too much fat on it. My wife had the crab cake appetizer and liked it so much she ordered a second one. Salads were enjoyable.... More

´Tis a grand day to be in Hilton Head. Purchased a NEW Mac Book Book Pro on the very first sales day, and this computer is lightning fast – It makes reading Hilton Head reviews and menus a pure pleasure. We are greeted at Crane’s Tavern by a lovely hostess, who offers all males a “shot of testosterone.” Another big... More

Even though there are seafood and pork selections on the menu, we consider Cranes our beef go to restaurant. We have never been disappointed with the service,atosphere,food,and bar selections. Cranes is a family owned restaurant and the pride shows in the presentation and quality of the food....we consider it our"CHEERS BAR" a very nice date nite place.
