Crane Cottage is a lovely spot for lunch or dinner, located in one of the homes in the Historic District. Filled with charm and ambiance, I recommend this spot for a romantic evening meal or special occasion. Reservations suggested for dinner during the busy months.

Our waiter was a true southern gentleman. The food was excellent and was priced high but well worth it. Was a wonderful date night with my sweetie. Had the grilled peaches as an appetizer and it was magnificent!! I would definitely return for dinner.

We are glad to know you found us but apologize that you were disappointed in the food. I have brought this to the Executive Chef's attention. The building or "cottage" is awesome and we do make a mean glass of sweet tea!

7 of us had a great meal I had shrimp and scallops, which were wonderfully done. Very good service. Great atmosphere. Rainy evening forced us to eat inside - would like to try the outdoor seating.
