Great Idea!

Beer wall with great local selections and tasty BBQ. Loved all the sauces. Loaded tots were also a highlight of my experience. And if all that wasn’t enough, they really have one of the best atmospheres around, with great local music and corn hole out back to enjoy as well. Definitely will be returning many, many times!

We All Loved Our Food!

I ate at Crave today with 13 other people and we all loved our food! I had the pulled pork sandwich and I highly recommend it!! I loved how I was able to choose from the different sauces. The staff was amazing and very helpful. The place was clean, friendly, relaxing, and very enjoyable. They had games that you could play when you got done eating. They had corn hole, connect four, and lots more.

Best Hot Dogs!

Best hot dogs in Wilmington! And they are half price on Tuesdays. I travel a lot and this is fast becoming one of my favorite spots in Carolina. Not do mention all they do for military Veterans (my father is a vet). Sometimes the Brunswick stew is on special. Pineapple Upsidedown Cake is magnificent. Immaculately clean place. Great beer selection. This spot is about to take off. Get there while it’s still somewhat of a hidden gem! Incredible staff, too, very nice and accommodating. Love it here.

– M. Vincent

Great food, great atmosphere, great beer, and great management!
