Hilton Head Island's destination for beef & seafood lovers, Crane's Tavern & Steakhouse serves only the finest USDA Prime Grade Beef & fresh local seafood. An old English bar & heart of pine floors create the setting with warm, inviting service & an award-winning wine list. <br />The restaurant represents 4 generations & over 100 years of restaurateurs in the Crane family dating back to 1908, when an Irish immigrant, Frank Crane founded Crane's Tavern in Philadelphia. After prohibition Frank's son, Francis & his brothers opened the famed establishment at 333 Queen Lane, where his son, Hank worked until 1969. That year Hank ventured out on his own & opened a Crane's Tavern in Ambler, PA. & then purchased the Surf City Hotel on Long Beach Island, NJ creating yet another establishment with the Crane namesake. In 1999 he & his daughter, Beth Anne opened Crane's Tavern & Steakhouse on Hilton Head Island, SC where it has become a local favorite

"This restaurant has a good atmosphere and the decor is reminiscent of some of the famous grill rooms up North, but it has waitresses in place of the grumpy old men and the prices are slightly lower. They do manage a reasonable steak but be warned, if you want a baked potato, you need to order it in advance when you make the booking. The prime rib is usually good and the other cuts are always tender. We booked ahead but were seated in the bar, which wasn't too bad except for the ubiquitous television sets. We would have preferred to sit in the restaurant, but that wasn't an option on Saturday night. This is one of the more expensive restaurants on the island and expect to pay upwards of $50 per person."

Il Corso establishment was founded in 1993 by two native Italian women from the south of Italy.<br /><br />They chose to name their restaurant "Il Corso" because it means "the path". Their goal is to guide their clients on a path to a wonderful experience.<br /><br />We pride ourselves on selecting the finest ingredients for our recipes. In addition to our menu, we offer daily specials that your server will present to you.<br />Il Corso's warm, cozy ambiance is complimented by an exquisite selection of moderately priced wines, full bar and nurtured by a friendly and knowledgeable staff serves.

"I like this restaurant a lot. It's cozy and friendly. The service is just right and the food is good. If you like Italian food then you will enjoy Il Corso with its extensive menu and wine list featuring Italian wines. The prices are reasonable for New York and it's in a great location if you are staying uptown. Definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a warm welcome and friendly people in Manhattan."
