6 friends and we've enjoyed McCrady's before. Due to new , expensive fixed price multi course plans at McCrady's, we chose The Tavern. We had a wonderful time and had delicious, eclectic food. Among the favorites: Oysters McCrady, Foie Gras,Veal Blanquette, stuffed clams, wreck fish, shrimp bisque, dressed shrimp, Marrow bones and even a Tavern Burger. Desserts were good, especially...

First, the upsides. The venue is great. Very beautiful space that has been meticulously restored to have an upscale feel while staying true to its 18th century roots. The starters are very, very good. Good selection and good execution on the start menu. And the beer list is marvelous. I'm not usually a beer drinker but the list enticed me... More

A Wednesday in February, the day after Valentine's Day...our expectations were not high! However, McCrady's Tavern was out to please and we luckily benefited. Started with Jensen's London Dry Gin martinis and the Foie Gras Parfait (in it's own in-house "tuna-tin") with Onion Toast, just perfect. Next we split the Spaghetti Chittarra which brought back marvelous memories of Faith's cooking... More

The venue itself is welcoming and beautifully renovated, the service friendly with a very informative and delightful bartender/waiter. The food was just not anywhere close to good and to add insult it was extremely overpriced. The onion soup was one inch deep with some unidentifiable liquid and bottomed by an egg yoke, it was disgusting! A vegan plate order was... More

McCrady's Tasting Room delivers on delicious interesting dishes that include a few hidden surprises. It was like eating art -beautiful and delicious . From start to finish , it was truly a special gastronomic experience. The chef definitely serves 5 star food and some of the best in Charleston. The atmosphere though ( loud shouting music =loud servers explaining dishes... More

This meal was a huge disappointment. Start with the appetizers - we had a charcuterie plate and a cheese plate. The charcuterie had like 3 minute slices of a pepperoni-type meat, 1 slice of a ham, and a few meager slices of a bologna-type meat. They were pretty good. Same as the cheese plate. 4 slices of cheese, all very... More

Ate here is February and the food was hit or miss. HIGHLY recommend the pan grilled chicken. Perhaps the best chicken we have ever eaten. Not your ordinary chicken. You will not regret it. Skip the mac and cheese. Scary color and not impressive. Same for the Oysters McCrady. Recommend the salad with 17 ingredients. Place is fun, wine was... More

McCrady's has made big changes since our visit last year. The have divided the restaurant into a tavern opening off Unity Alley and a very upscale restaurant with a large Chef's table with a set tasting menu. I had loved the private, cave-like ambiance of the old restaurant with the burning fireplace and the lighting which gave privacy. We returned... More

Our local friends made a reservation for six of us at McGrady's Tavern. If you dine in Charleston you know this is owned by the folks who gave us Husk and McGrady's Restaurant. We were looking for good food in an atmosphere where the six of us could laugh and talk and we hit the jack pot. McGrady's Tavern is... More
