Diner Reviews
  • "American bar food menu is limited in scope, but good and consistent. They have 39 different draught beers, with good variety. Staff is attentive and friendly, definitely the best part of the McCray's experience. We keep coming back!"

  • "Made reservations to eat at McCray's on the Square at 7:15pm. Thank goodness I made reservations because it was packed and there was an hour or so wait for a table at that point. We placed our drink order for two beers and it took 15mins. or so to get them.  So we finally get our beer and place our food order and were told that they were out of most of the St. Paddy's Day specials. Really?! At 7:30pm?? On St. Paddy's Day?? Needless to say, I ordered the Irish stew and my husband ordered the Fish and Chips. The Irish stew was oversalted and for the measly amount that I was given, $13. is a bit much to charge. My husband said the fish was good but he was disappointed that he didn't get traditional chips with it. Fries are not chips."

  • "I ordered hot wings for an appetizer, if this was their idea of hot they should rethink the name. Onion rings were good, but 8 rings for $7.95 seems a little expensive. Then came the entree, meatloaf, it was very dry, had a microwave heated up taste. It came with mashed potatoes which were extremely lumpy. The potatoes temperature was warm in places and cold in others... definitely reheated in the microwave. The food was the worst I have had in a very long time and I eat out alot. Our server was the only bright spot."

  • "My co-workers and I always make the trip to McCrays for a group lunch. The food is amazing, they never have a problem seating us, and the noise is not overpowering making it easy to have conversations about non-office topics. I was put off at this visit when I asked for a large margaritas and was told they come in one size or I could get a pitcher. I chose the pitcher figuring that with 8 other people, I could share, but when the waiter returned, he told me he can't serve a pitcher to one person. I appreciate the proactive gesture, but whoever told him this rule clearly didn't realize which party it was going to. They certainly didn't ask who else's tab it was going on."

  • "Took a group of 8 for lunch. Service was good, attentive. Waters, sweet teas, sodas were refreshed throughout lunch. Food came out fast. Food was good. Fish and chips are quite good. With 8 at the table, I was not gasping for breathe when the bill came. I hear its great when the weather is a little warmer and you can enjoy the rooftop."

  • "Great Beer Selection. Great tavern food. Normally, one might get turned off by the idea of tavern food..again. But this is a true gem. McCray's food was fantastic and above average. Service was good. Ambiance was great. Clean restaurant. Well done."

  • "Our group of six (five from out of town) experienced McCray's on a Monday night recently. The limited menu really left us all a bit disappointed. Not enough full meal choices. Also wanted to mention the asparagus was just plain awful!"

  • "McCrays is the first restaurant I have dined at in downtown Lawrenceville. I had the Shrimp and Grits which was quite tasty with a red sauce and andouille sausage. However, I could not eat all of it and the dish as a leftover does not translate well. Definitely tastes much better when eaten fresh. My friend had the Rigatoni Vodka Pasta with shrimp and chicken. She said it was delicious and I took her word for it since she ate all of her meal. I did not taste it because I don't like creamy sauces. We decided to get the Brownie a la mode for dessert and it was very good, possibly the best I have tasted in awhile. The brownie was warm and moist and the ice cream just topped it off perfectly. We will be back in the future."
