    You will not regret getting the BBQ chicken sandwich. Shredded chicken, tasty sauce and coleslaw. Bonus: the Marina girls go to Blue Barn so you can eat without wanting to shove a fork in your ears.

    Horrible service. Waited an hour and still no food. Then the waitress made a smart ass comment. 👎

    The Cabernet vinaigrette on the Cobb salad is money.

    French dip sandwich was super good. Good breakfast options. The service could use a little work though, the staff wasn't very friendly. :(

    Compared to starbucks across the street, Crave has better food, more seating, faster wi-fi, and tastier coffee.

    I come here a lot to work on Sundays. Roast Chicken sandwich -- very filling. I wouldn't come here if I was in a rush though. Meals are prepared "lovingly"

    Crave is awesome, I work here a lot. Big tip - there is only one outlet in the place & it's behind the drink fridge. They are cool about you using it.
