The Food was Awesome!
I ordered a bratwurst with bacon and sauerkraut and they asked me if I wanted either topping heated up or not. I like my sauerkraut cool on mine so that’s how I got it. Just nice being asked and given the option. The food was awesome and their toffee sticky cake is . Everyone there was super kind and I loved my experience. I’ll be coming back for sure. They also have a self pour beer wall that I can’t wait to try on my next visit!

Delicious Comfort Food!
Delicious comfort food! Mac and cheese or hash brown bowls are amazing! We also loved the beer wall! You pay for the beer by the ounce so you can try them all or only get as much as you want.

Super Clean & Welcoming!
We walked in the place was super clean and welcoming. The owner was really nice and welcoming as well. We loved that there were so many options to choose for barbecue sauce. We are looking forward to going back and trying more things on the menu.

Affordable, Yummy & Family Owned!
We read some reviews before deciding to come here for our date night. I got the hot dog with cheese, super basic I know, but it was awesome. Hubby got the Crave Supreme which is basically a bunch of meat and brisket and cheese on top of a spicy sausage hot dog– he said he would definitely recommend. The sweet potato tots are to die for! We taste tested all of the complimentary BBQ sauces and while we did have favorites, they were all great. The beer wall was such a cool experience– getting to taste test all the ciders and beers! If you’re looking for an affordable, yummy, family owned restaurant to take your significant other to, Crave is the place to go!

One of the best I've had!
Stopped in quickly to pick up some chicken when we realized we didn’t have any protein for lunch. Got a pound of pulled chicken and I have to say it’s one of the best I’ve had. I’m pretty snobby about BBQ and this chicken was perfectly juicy and smoky. They have a great beer selection, TVs, and a nice outdoor patio. Will definitely be back.
– Gabe D.

Hot & Fresh!
This place is beside another new food location I’ve been trying so I thought I’d give it a try! It was pretty good overall! Everything was hot and fresh and made while I waited which was nice! Everyone inside was very friendly as well and willing to give food suggestions which is always good too! They will certainly see me again!

Delicious! I got loaded tots and he got the Mac and brisket sandwich. We were so hungry I forgot to take a pic before we started eating. The beer was great too!
– Erika E.
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
Had the ribs mac n cheese and sweet potato tots. IT WAS DELICIOUS!!! Decided to try something new it was a great choice. Friendly atmosphere service was great not a long wait. Will go back.
– N. Peterson

The food here is absolutely delicious. I received a Huge portion!! They offer 6 different bbq sauces varying from vinegar to ketchup based at each table to add to your food. The environment was friendly from the moment we walked in the door. The self serve beer wall was very cool! I highly recommend this restaurant if you are in the Wilmington Area. Great food, great atmosphere, great beer, and great management!
– E. Vance
We’ve been here maybe 4 times since they opened and each time we leave satisfied . Lots of choices and specials on specific days plus a wide selection of beers on tap. Great atmosphere for many occasions and their food reminds me of the southern cooking back home!
