Carry Out Available!

It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce that Crane Alley will be closing its doors later this month. 

The last day of service will be Saturday 6/18/22. 


It has been an honor to have owned Crane Alley for 19 years and to have been able to be a part of the community in such a unique way.   


Thank you to everyone who supported us over the years.  Thank you to our regulars who chose Crane Alley as their spot.  And to all the employees past and present, thank you so very much for all your hard work and dedication throughout the years.   


Please come out and join us to say goodbye and celebrate 19 years of

Crane Alley being a cornerstone of Downtown Urbana.

As you are aware, there are rules that come along with the present mitigations. These are city and state rules that are being implemented for your safety as well as the safety of our employees.  These mitigations do change, please check here for updates.

Please be patient and abide by them as we all try to navigate this uncharted territory.

 Things You Should Know

  • We will be taking precautions to ensure guests and our employees’ safety. Tables, chairs, and anything that has been at the table will be sanitized between seatings. Our employees will be going above and beyond the guidelines on hand washing frequency.  

  • Hand Sanitizer will be provided at each table.

  • We know it’s impossible to wear a face covering while eating or drinking, but we will require them for entrance into the building and waiting in line to be sat, any time your server is at the table, as well as going to and from the restrooms. 

  • Please stay six feet away from the adjacent party while waiting to be seated to adhere to city code.  

  • All guests must remain seated at their tables.  Please do not walk around or approach other tables.  

  • We will have a convenient QR code at every table so guests can view our menus on their phones via our website. Make sure you enable QR codes in your camera settings. You can also navigate directly to our website If QR codes are not your thing, we will have laminated hard copy menus just in case you have issues with your phone.

Within the current atmosphere, we greatly appreciate your understanding

and patience with the precautions that we are taking

to make your experience at Crane Alley enjoyable.
