McCrady's Tavern Ratings and Reviews
Celebrating Sunday at
McCrady's Tavern on Unity ALLEY off East Bay. BEST BRUNCH I've ever had!!! Atmosphere Britainesque, food absolutely cooked and seasoned to perfection, unparalleled service! One of best Bloody Mary's in town; Dick had GREAT dark local beer on tap. We were lucky to find street parking on State St. at head of Alley or we probably parked in Cumberland St garage--short walk.
The food was amazing but the service was exceptional!!! Our server was so knowledgeable about all the food and gave great suggestions on parings. Very friendly and personable. We could tell he wanted our experience to be great. We would recommend highly. Look forward to coming back.
We were looking forward to trying out the "new" McCrady's and I have to say it was pretty disappointing. I probably had the worst dirty martini ever made to begin our night and the restaurant was terribly hot--I started feeling overheated it was so uncomfortable. It's definitely lively and our friends really enjoyed the soundtrack (a little off-putting if you had been to McCrady's before). The food was just OK. Not many seafood selections which is always disappointing when you live in Charleston. The beef tartar was very good, but the entrees were not great. Not sure we will try it again.
Food was fantastic, caviar and tater tots were amazing. But service was painfully slow. We would have had more drinks, and we were not able to enjoy wine with our dinner because of the slow service. So we had just one drink before dinner, and then almost finished our food before our glass of wine arrived. Very slow for a Wednesday night, or for any night.
Our experience was marred by the fact that the air conditioning was not working and it was unbearably hot where we were seated. Service was very slow and some in our group almost fainted from a lack of water and the heat. The food we were able to eat was delicious
The ambiance of this magnificent historic setting was authentic and the waiter was well versed in the history of the architecture and the McCrady story. The food was well prepared and tasty. Unfortunately the food service was terribly slow. We waited thirty minutes between appetizer /salad and our main course. When we inquired with the manager she became defensive. I finally stood and walked around the dining room to see that not a single table had food. Clearly a problem in the kitchen. The manager should have owned up to it. We won't be back.
Wonderful restaurant with a great vibe. Although the address is street facing, the entrance is down an alley which was a fun "twist". Steaks were superb. Ordered the beet side and it was fabulous. Creative cocktails; wonderful wine and to-die-for dessert. Upon exiting the restaurant we continued down the alleyway and found quaint houses and gardens. We will return on our next trip to Charleston.
Great experience. Amazing historical building. Cocktails, chopped salad, pasta, mac and cheese, and fries were all fantastic (and not as simple as they may sound)! The flat iron steak (ordered medium... came out medium rare/rare...sent back... came out medium rare/rare again... so I ate it) was just okay. Even if cooked to my liking, it could have used a little more flavor. Overall, a great meal. We'll definitely be back.
The reincarnation of the famed Mccradys may just be its best act yet. Sean Brock & Sam Jett have thoughtfully prepared a vibe on the menu here that could be in any city in the world but thank our lucky stars it's here in Charleston.
This place is special. There should be lines out the door every day that this place is open. Truly amazing experience every single visit.
Great food, great service. The portions were on the small side, but the quality was outstanding. The music was great and not overly loud. The prices were high, but that was expected and certainly in line with the quality of the food.
We had our tenth anniversary and wanted to go somewhere special. We were not disappointed. The staff went out of its way to make the whole experience as pleasant as possible. This included an explanation of what to expect. The wine, a 2014 Antonin, was good. she had the oysters McCrady, which were excellent (although one oyster still had some shell in it) I had the scallops which were superb (only two though) The main menu consisted out of a Flatiron steak for her. Again, outstanding taste and texture although only two strips of steak. I had the Trout. Excellently prepared. As a side we had the Tavern Fries, which were good but not exceptional. As a desert we chose the Rice pudding. Outstanding, but very different than expected. It was not sweet at all but more tangy with a crispy layer on top of it. So, if you are in for outstanding food, this is the place. If you want low prices and big portions, not so much ;-)
Nice ambience with a lot of history. The food was excellent. You could definitely see Sean Brock's influence on the menu. I had the flat iron steak and my Pops had the veal, both were outstanding and the Mac and Cheese was definitely a guilty pleasure worth ordering. Overall it was a great place to finish a beautiful day in Charleston.
Amazing. Simply amazing. I cannot express this enough.
Booked a reservation for my girlfriend's birthday this past 7/2/17 and ALL expectations were met! Flew from DC to enjoy the weather and hospitality of Charleston and feel the vibes, and McCrady's definitely shared some southern hospitality! THE FOOD AND SERVICE WERE PHENOMENAL!!! Very courteous, patient, and accommodating FOH staff, and the food raised such a high bar.
Make a reservation or come in early. Thank me later.
This was the worst dining experience we have had recently. The service was incredibly slow. It was 30 minutes before we got our appetizers and by one hour at forty minutes, we still had not received our entrees. Our appetizers were okay. Please do not order the Oysters McCrady; it tasted like velveeta cheese with extremely small chunks of ham. The oyster on the half shell had shell fragments, but the chowder was okay. The order of champagne came in a wine glass and was flat. The second glass also came in a wine glass and was flatter. We finally walked out after being told several times that our entrees were coming out and twenty minutes later, no entrees. The manager was very apologetic, but there is absolutely no excuse for a Sean Brock restaurant to operate this way. Five thumbs down!!!!
This was our first time dining at McCrady's Tavern. Beautiful restaurant in a charming Alley. Brunch was spectacular! The oyster soup and blueberry scones were to die for. Everything we ordered was delicious. Staff was friendly and very attentive. Can't wait to go back. Highly recommended.
Friends from Houston Tx came for a mutual friend' wedding. It was my friend's wife's birthday and they picked McCrearys from the website. I live on Johns Island. My friends steak was over cooked so he sent it back to the kitchen and did not want another due to slowing up the meal for everyone else. The food for the rest of us was nothing exceptional. Overall we did not enjoy and my friend was so disappointed in his wife's birthday meal. With all the restaurants in Charleston we will not be going back or recommending to friends .
AWESOME bar experience this past Friday. Enjoyed a happy hour gathering with a best friend. Enjoyed several cocktails, an appetizer and the happy hour burger. SO VERY GOOD. We will be back. The Tavern approach to this long standing Charleston institution is much appreciated--the atmosphere and food are high end yet recognizable and comfortable.
