Set in an incredibly beautiful, historic building; McCrady's was awesome. The fish was outstanding, the appetizer's were superb and the service was excellent. Great place!

Went for lunch. Perhaps the most dismal service I've ever encountered which is no mean feat. The millennial server must have just found out that his degree in urban anthropology wouldn't get him out of his parents' basement anytime soon. He was surly to the point of rude. The barkeep was busy chatting up a waitress so it took about... More

We had lunch here on a recent Saturday. The menu said brunch and reflected that but we were able to get stuff we wanted. Not sure why brunch is becoming a Saturday thing - too cute for me. Anyway, I had a pork chop sandwich that was excellent and my wife had the shrimp with quail eggs which she loved.... More

I had heard a lot about McCrady's and the locals seem to like it. I liked it too, but it came up just a little short compared to the other highly rated Charleston restaurants. The Dressed Shrimp appetizer was tasty. The pasta my wife had and the roasted chicken I had were both good but not great. I wouldn't avoid... More

Not up to Brock's standards! Food okay but atmosphere weak! "Tavern" too light.....pinpoint lights in ceiling very distracting from ambiance of room! Music annoying and much too loud! Service very "new" or nervous! Food and drinks slow to appear! Tavern salad so dull and tasteless almost couldn't eat! Food just standard! Presentation also ordinary! Won't go back for sure!

We come to McCrady's for a fine dining experience when we get together with our adult children in Charleston. To our surprise, it is now two restaurants, one with a 15 course tasting menu and the Tavern, which is where we unsuspectingly booked, which is, well, different The menu needs a lot of explanation, and even with that there were...

Food was delicious and well prepared. Service was impeccable - I appreciated the fact that I wasn't told our waitresses name - after all I am NOT having lunch with her. Not at all supercilious, thank god! I had the Crab Bisque with vermouth and tarragon which was velvety smooth and delectable. The fries with my associate's burger had a... More

From start to finish, everything about our experience was amazing! Great menu and specials, creative cocktails, wonderful atmosphere, and superior service. Most importantly, the food was outstanding. We had the "steak for two" to celebrate a special night out, and it was worth every penny. If we make a return visit to Charleston, we'll be back!

After the rave reviews from everyone met we had to try this but it fell short in our opinion. The menu was unique in choices which was exciting. However it felt minimal in choice. Also we were confused on the two names, the tavern and the main name. Our server was not overly friendly or helpful with the menu. When... More

Best dinner I have had in Charleston and I have been to many of the top picks. My portion of pork was so large I thought I could never even eat half of it but it was so tasty and perfectly cooked that I ate the whole thing. Staff were knowledgeable and attentive. And the location is great too -... More
