Food and Service are outstanding. The only negative was an outrageously priced wine list. There were no value wines and even upper my tolerance to spend $110 for a bottle of Chablis we not rewarded with a gem. I found the wine list lack of reasonable choice and inflated price to take a lot of the joy out of the occasion. Good Food and good service. Avoid cocktails and wine as they way over priced.

We had a wonderful time. The service was great, with the exception of the hostess, who was as energetic as a piece of toast. The rest of the staff was wonderful. The ambiance is warm and enjoyable. The noise level was a little loud, but you could still have a conversation at the table. The food was very well prepared and there was something for every palate. I am so glad that we were able to try this place after all these years.

Not our best trip to the tavern. They were out of a few of the menu items and the advertised catch of the day. Our server was very helpful in helping craft an optional main course. The newly minted main course was flavorful but overly salted.

I have always considered The inside Decour of this location to be one of the best in Charleston. I love this new concept. Did food for all four people with us was excellent. We took advantage of the restaurant week special and it was a great value. Can’t wait to return.

Nice decor. We had reservations and were seated immediately with no waiting. Our server Page was outstanding and made sure we were satisfied with our food. She was also very knowledgeable about the food and drink selections. The only issue was that the restaurant was very chilly. The ambience would have been greatly enhanced if the fireplaces had been working. All things considered it was a good dining experience.

Hubby had the pasta dish. Noodles were huge and he said tasted like dough. He was unimpressed. I had the roast chicken and escalloped potatoes. Chicken was a 'C' at best. Potatoes tasted like the came out of a box. Beautiful restaurant, fireplace, bar. Food was not good. Way over priced for the quality of the food. We won't return.

We’ve done dinner a few times but this was our first time doing brunch at McCrady’s and it was great. Amazing food and service, as always. Our waitress, Jacquelyn, was super friendly and knowledgeable and everyone loved their brunch.

Nice job on Xmas Eve!

Very traditional. Meat heavy
Part of the 1787 history
Wine list was great

My wife said "best in years"

I said "top 20"

So. Kids...it's "Fing" good!

Go! Pay! Have fun!

We decided to eat at the bar as the restaurant was pretty empty. The bartender was a bit annoyed I asked him to wipe down the bar. So a bad start. Ordered a cocktail and received the menu. Bartender never came back not to refresh our cocktail nor to take our food order. Another waiter had to take our money. I was sad and disappointed.

Had a reservation for 7:45, showed up at 7 and got a couple drinks at the bar. The bartender was amazing and had great suggestions for new drinks. However, after getting drinks at the bar we waited by the hostess for 35 mins before finally getting seated at 8:20. The food was awesome and same goes for our waitress. My only complaint it having a reservation and still having to wait over a half hour to be seated.

Have always been a huge fan of this restaurant but the changes they have made to the whole experience of eating there were disappointing. It no longer feels very special. So sad. It's like it's been dumbed down.

Visited for brunch last Sunday with friends visiting from Germany. Wait staff excellent and knowledgeable - as usual. Very interesting menu and sources but my visitors felt the menu was a bit limited - not enough seafood offerings. Additionally they complained about the lack of conventional table salt as the restaurant offers only a small bowl of sea salt ( I guess) for those requesting salt. All too foodie for me. As usual we had to ask the staff to turn down the music so we could comfortably talk which they promptly did. Quibbles really as it was a great meal in a great restaurant.

This was our first trip to McCrady's since they went to the tavern format and we certainly enjoyed it. The atmosphere is more casual but still upscale, with the food and prices still in the fine dining category.
