Son in town to visit. A little more casual than I remember. Food delicious. Service good and friendly. Little less noise would have been better but we were seated right by the bar so should have been expected.

Overall very nice but finishing touches not complete to get 5 stars.
Arrived early and numerous tables available but waited tooo long to get seated.
Waiter late arriving at table and did not comment on any menu items and had to be prodded to even explain the pastry of the day.
Entrees were very tasty and well prepared and presented.
Will return and see if it lives up to other 5 star reviews!

Nice alternative for Mother’s Day brunch. Menu was a little limited. Service was slow. I assume kitchen was understaffed.

I’ve wanted to visit one of Brock’s restaurants ever since I saw him on Mind of a Chef. My brother used to work at Husk Nashville and couldn’t say enough about the food. My wife and I planned a last minute trip to Charleston so I knew Husk was a long shot, and it was, so I gave McCrady’s Tavern a try and luckily they had a table!

My wife and I were celebrating 6 years married and just wanted some tasty food and good vibes. Boy did we pick the right place. We had cocktails at the bar while we waited for our able and just had a blast. Once we sat down to look at the menu the server was fantastic. Everything from the pretzel roll before dinner to the last bite of my pork chop was amazing. The ambience was just what we were looking for. A great place to relax and be yourself, but enjoy the pleasures of delicious food and a wonderful atmosphere. Check this place out!

Very disappointed ... we were running 15 minutes late because our daughter fractured her foot. We called ahead and hostess was not accommodating. When we arrived she had cancelled our reservation.
We had made the reservation 3 weeks in advance and were extremely upset with the lack of Southern charm that we’ve experienced at other top restaurants in Charleston.

What a marvelous dinner! My mom raved about the porterhouse pork chop that melted in her mouth along with the greens on top! I enjoyed the veal entrée accompanied with the vegetables and potato/leek sides. To top it off, the Baked Alaska is so different and I would highly recommend it! Thanks for a great night!

As always, very creative food preparation. Squid ink cavatelli was tasty and not often seen. My wife enjoyed her swordfish.
Service was attentive - everyone was quite pleasant.
A little noisy, but they appeared to be full, as usual.

This was our first visit to McCrady's Tavern. We had high expectations given the chef and our expectations were met throughout the meal. We were seated at a 2 top by the bar so the nice level was higher than perhaps at the booths. Our waitress Shelly was great - helped with the wine choice as well as the entrees. Very accommodating on the 17 item chopped salad as I wanted to leave out a couple items yet they brought those items separately for my husband!
Would visit here again - for the bar and/or the restaurant!

The food was spectacular! I’m so glad we decided to check this place out, and now I understand the hype. I went with a friend for dinner, and we both started with the wholly smoke cocktail which we both loved. The mezcal was well balanced with the egg white. We started with the beef tartare and oysters mccrady, and then shared the squid ink pasta with sausage, and the pork loin. All of which were absolutely delicious. Can’t wait to go back there the next time I’m in Charleston.

Had heard many good things about McCrady's Tavern over the years and finally had the occasion to bring friends there for a dinner. Food, service and drinks were all top drawer. Delicious entrees and excellent service. Not inexpensive, but a quality dining experience. Now can't wait to try Husk.

What a lovely atmosphere. Historic setting, very comfortable environment. We arrived a bit early for our reservations, but got seated right away. The wait staff is attentive and well trained. It was my husbands 65th birthday and McCradys helped make it an extra special night. The food was amazing !

Food was good service was ok, If you don’t make a reservation they put you at a “community” table not bad but makes you feel like your an outcast at the restaurant.

Dear Mr Brock, Having lived in the area for years and enjoyed your cuisine, our table were all very disappointed in your menu. Six of us arrived at 8pm and were immediately told there was only one portion of fish available and by the time we ordered that was gone. All of us would have preferred a fish dish that evening. Most of us ordered the pork chop which was enormous. There is nothing more unappealing and unhealthy than a large slab of meat covering the whole plate with virtually no vegetables. It was advertised as having a salad with it - maybe watercress but a couple of pieces of a green leaf would have been better described as a garnish. Then there were some onions on top of the meat but they did not exactly offer any color to the plate. We did order 2 sides of the vegetables of the day and only one arrived with our main course. We all would much rather had a third of the meat on the plate with a nice composition of fresh vegetables. I know you are mainly eating vegetables these days - you have a great tattoo of fresh farm vegetables on your arm recently painted by Robert Lange. Please consider some more healthy menu options!!!!

This is a beautiful restaurant and we had amazing service. The quality of food does not necessarily match pricing so I rated this as a fair value. The food was not bad but I expected more given what I've heard about this restaurant and the price paid for a meal.

I'd previously eaten at McCrady's in my prior working life and enjoyed it thoroughly so I naturally wanted to share that experience with my wife when we celebrated our 30th anniversary in Charleston. Food and service were excellent! My wife was delighted and I knew she'd not be disappointed from my earlier experience there.
