Best steak and blackened catfish I've had in awhile. Apple pie dessert is extremely good! Service was spectacular. No need to go anywhere else.

Great food, excellent service and great value even if you don't order the early dining specials. French onion soup is about the best on the island and the beef entrees especially prime rib are excellent too. Desserts are very good especially the homemade one.

Every time we come to Hilton Head, we include an evening at Crane's for dinner. The ambiance of the restaurant is lovely, but we go there for exceptional food, especially the prime rib dinner. Crane's also offers excellent "Early Bird" dining choices, which include choice...More
