Delightful atmosphere, servers very attentive. I had the flounder and it was prepared very tastefully. My husband had the crispy veal blanquette which was very good too. We felt the portions were sufficient and cleaned our plates. Many beers and wines to choose from.

Awesome setting in old brick building, two fire places and a great looking bar. Nice selection of micro beers and wine. Then the food arrives. The food is very good, what there is of it. Disappointing tiny portions.I have never experienced a pre-sliced Steak Frites. Is there such a thing? Steak comes with tasty seasoned fries, and three, yes ONLY... More

Our waiter Matthew was excellent. This evening was a fix price menu for New Year's Eve. The food was amazing, the wine chilled to perfection, the setting, the decor and music very tasteful.

Historic, Charleston tradition found off a charming lamp-lit alley, beams and brick interior. Well known chef. Somewhat expensive- Surly service when asked about dairy free options. Whole experience was mediocre, disappointing for all four of us. Charcuterie board appetizer was sparse-sausage was very good but all else unremarkable. Two veggie side dishes-cabbage custard was mostly custard, not much cabbage. Broccoli... More

We had an amazing dinner mirrored after George Washington's Christmas Eve meal. Great atmosphere, and fantastic service. We felt like royalty! We will be back next year.

Made reservations weeks in advance and so glad I did. We had the pasta special and a burger. Top notch. The wait staff is informative and friendly. Not too fancy but spectators flavors.

We chose this restaurant based on the glowing review by the Post and Courier food critic. What a disappointment! My too-salty flounder and the accompanying tomato/eggplant were bland. The highly touted mac and cheese was too creamy and not cheesy enough for my discerning husband. I would have sent back my dish but did not want to make a fuss... More

Great, lively atmosphere. As walk-ins it only took 10 minutes to seat us at a community table. Other restaurants had 45 minutes of wait time. Brick interior was super cool. Great service with a smile! Outstanding food. Reasonable prices. Great cocktails and wine list and beer! This is a great spot for couples and groups who are looking for a... More

We visited McCrady's based on a recommendation and what a mistake! They we out of the short rib and veal my husband wanted. He finally decided on the pork porterhouse which he got and it was over cooked! I decided to do a tour of the app menu....beef tartare....had no flavor, salad....sub par (flavor) topped with what I think were... More

Terrible service! We have been seated for over an hour and no food! Lots of empty tables but can barely grab the attention of our waitress
