My wife and I live in Lawrenceville, so it's always fun finding a cool place to eat and drink close to home. McCray's fits the bill. They've got really good food and plenty of beer on tap--my kind of place. The burgers are an excellent choice. Make reservations if you can because it can get pretty crowded. All in all,... More

We went for St. Patrick's Day around three or 4 PM before it got too busy the server was very attentive and fast. The scotch eggs and fish and chips were very fresh and delicious...my only complaint would be the size of the drinks-they came out in small plastic cups but charged regular price

Initially thought this place was mostly hype but proved wrong when we had lunch there. Burger ("matador") was on point and very flavorful. My wife got the salmon BLT and had an equally tasty experience. Service good too and not as crowded as I expected, which was refreshing. Good chance we'll be back!

This place has an excellent lunch. I wish that I could drink at lunch because their beer selection looks to die for.

My family was in town and we went to McCray's for lunch. It took forever to get our food and when we did it was average at best. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the food was just ok. I don't think I will return.

Good food just a little pricey. But you will get full. I had some fun here and the staff was very knowledgeable about the food and I loved the fresh fish.

Went there for dinner the other night. 9 of us, 3 were kids. Cool place, the service was great and the food was excellent. I had a burger and cheese grits....outstanding! I have been there once before and had a good experience. The kids were happy with their meal. We will return again soon next time in Lawrenceville.

Nothing special at all. Most options are pretty bland. Pricing is fair, service is okay. Better service at the bar than from most servers for sure.

Typical bar food that is overpriced. Theyou have a great bar with good prices. On a nice day, sitting on the rooftop with a cold drink is great. Wish they had better food at better prices.

Went here for dinner and wasn't impressed at all. Great spot for bar food if that's your thing and really slow service. I think I'll stick with the other restaurants off the square that I usually go to (Oyster Bay and Local Republic). I'm a foodie, so I was disappointed. Our server was nice but that's about the best thing... More
