We've been to McCrady's Tavern twice on visits to Charleston. The menu have unique offerings that do not disappoint. The menu seems to vary according to the availability of fresh ingredients. The chef's are always willing to make modifications to accommodate dietary restrictions. Portion sizes are not "super-sized." The servers are knowledgeable about how the food is prepared and about...

We visited McCrady's for my fiancés birthday and were blown away by the food and service. Though we had a later reservation, we were not rushed through our meal and received excellent service from the time we arrived. We both ordered the tavern burger and highly recommend it! We both agree McCrady's is one of our top three favorites in... More

We enjoyed our meal at McCrady's. The best dishes by far were the Beef Tartare appetizer the Porterhouse Pork entree. All the dishes were solidly done, though I can't say they elevated to extraordinary. The atmosphere was excellent and the staff was engaging.

Every year we come to Charleston for one of our photo workshops, we end up at McCrady's Tavern sometime during the week. The bar scene there is friendly and the service excellent. Joe comes up with some amazing concoctionsm, such as his new Pyke's Punch, made with dark and other intriguing ingredients. The conversations is always good there, too. The... More

The restaurant had received great reviews and our walking tour guide also highly recommended it. Unfortunately, we were underwhelmed. Our waiter was invisible - never once checked to see if we needed anything (we would have loved another drink) or if everything was to our satisfaction. We had to flag him down at the end of the meal. Although the... More

We walked by this place and loved the appeal of having a drink in a tavern located on a cobblestone alley off the main drag. We didn't stop right then, but returned the next day and were not disappointed! We decided to have lunch and a couple of beers. My husband had charcoal grilled vegetables with Carolina Gold rice and... More

I have been to the many incarnations of McCrady's over the years and have always enjoyed the atmosphere and food. Three of my friends and I were anxious to try the new "tavern" interpretation and were were excited when we were able to snag a table on Opentable for St. Patrick's evening. The space is still cool and historic and... More

After a bad experience at the "new" McCradys (Sean Brock's epicurean experiment) we decided to try the Tavern - what a great experience! Delightful and inspired menu with great service. Arrive early to have a drink at the bar

My husband loved the food, I did not. They have a very small selective menu. Probably normal for Charleston. Ordered a Steak, waitor said it comes medium rare I asked for medium it was still very rare. Bread was excellent. Husband ordered the Cobia Collar. it was literally a head of a fish with fins on a plate. Not a... More
