I’m a huge Sean Brock fan so we decided to do brunch at McCrady’s for Father’s Day. It was amazing. Oysters, avocado toast with a kick, and a Hot Brown to die for. Great drinks as well.

My husband had eaten here a couple weeks before and loved it. We returned together for our anniversary dinner. The food was spectacular and our server was attentive and friendly. We will return our next visit to Charleston!

Very young and undertrained staff. Food was good but not great. Prices high and overall value low. Bartender was brusque and marginally helpful. Music was completely inappropriate for the venue. Told them when we made the reservation that it was our anniversary, but they didn’t recognize it while we were there at all.

The food was pretty good, atmosphere was nice, and they accommodated our anniversary nicely! If you’ve been to Husk (they have the same owner) it sorta has the same feel, just not as fancy. In my opinion it was a little pricey but still very good.

We thought is was okay. Our server was pretty good. The hostess obviously ignored my Open Table seating preferences while other tables were available to accommodate us. The food was good but not exceptional.

The food was subpar at best. My husbands steak which was supposed to be “medium well” came out rare both times it was sent back and the shrimp cocktail as well as the shrimp In my salad were soggy and mushy as if they sat in water all day. The waiter kept disappearing, in fact he simply walked away in the middle of taking our order to attend to another table, it was the strangest thing I’ve ever witnessed. Horrible food. Horrible service. And we spent well over $100 even after the manager comped the steak my husband could barely eat but a few bites of. Worse dining experience I’ve had in a few years, a total waste of money.

The food was disappointing and overpriced. It seemed like the staff has been trained to say “y’all” at any opportunity. This was annoying because few of them said it naturally. With the amount of great restaurants in chs , I doubt we will return.

After a warm welcome from the receptionist, everything besides the ambience of the restaurant was hugely disappointing. The Oysters McCrady which was supposed to be served with mushrooms one and country ham were served in some type of citrus sauce and were not even bite sized. I am not sure all even had oysters in them. After being overly specific about how I would like my steak prepared - medium or just shy, they bring a steak that may have been cooked for 3 minutes total. My wife specifically asked about the amount ham in the Cavatelli,expressing she would not order it if there was a lot. The server said he would request none be added - true to form with our experience there it was served with extra ham. I would advise anyone to avoid this place. There are way too many options in Charleston.

Food here was fantastic. We had brunch and tried a few things - all were excellent. The burger was AMAZING! Sean Brock (Chef at Husk) is apparently a partner at McCrady's, so it's no surprise that it was so delicious. Will definitely go back!

Nothing to complain about here, but if it’s critical analysis that is requested, here’s some:
Fish was undercooked and sent back. It was the catch of the day so it shouldn’t happen
The food is good, but there are 2 restaurants within a stones throw that are as good or better for same or less
I wouldn’t hesitate to return, but it wouldn’t be my first choice in Charleston and with so many other choices, we won’t be returning unless someone else in the group is doing the booking

I used to like McGrady's but this place has gone downhill. Now I would call it overpriced for what you get. Food is heavy and pretty traditional. Service was slow (not in the good way) and not very friendly.

McCrady's was recommended by a local so we thought we would give it a try. Hubbies cocktail came with a bug in it, but that can happen so he simply sent it back. The Escargot Stuffed Marrow Bone and the salad with Shrimp and Crab Louie Dressing, were very good! However, we were extremely disappointed with our dinner. The Crispy Veal Cutlet with Green Peas, Mushrooms and City Ham had no ham, the cutlet was heavily breaded. I specifically ask and the server said it was not. It was covered with a thick heavy gravy, it was terrible no interest at all something like your grandma would fry. My husband got the 8oz Filet Mignon, it was fine but nothing special. You would think it would have been served with at least one side for $43, but it wasn't. The tables were tiny, but the decor was nice and had the feel of a tavern.
Bottom line it didn't come close to the many fine restaurants in Charleston, so many choices with very talented chiefs.

Went to this place with very high expectations of Sean Brock’s food as I am a professional chef in the business myself. He did not disappoint! The food was insanely delicious and executed to perfection. I especially loved the foie gras/pate dish. The roasted chicken was phenomenal. The decor and service were top notch as well. Even the pricing was not bad at all. We ordered about 8 different things and had a couple cocktails and a beers, the bill was only $150. That’s a pretty good deal! I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion!

We booked a table for Sunday lunch/brunch. This restaurant is really nicely decorated and food was nice, but the service was a little weird. We waited for ages to have our order taken, when staff seemed to be tripping over each other to clear a table right beside us. I asked for salt when my lunch arrived and the server looked horrified. They did provide the salt but this was whisked away before our empty plates. I felt like I had broken some unwritten rule. Food was tasty, particularly the dessert, so I recommended leaving room for that. Probably wouldn't be rushing back based on overall experience but the food was good.

I ordered the filet mignon rare and they cooked it to perfection. As usual with upscale dining sides were a separate cost but the purée potatoes with black truffle butter were good. They had a fantastic wine list and enjoyed the escargot marrow appetizer. The staff was courteous and out server was very efficient. Although I believe this restaurant should be listed as a 2 1/2 $ sign because our bill for 1 glass of wine, 1 beer, 2 starters, 2 main courses and 1 side with tip was $200. But overall good experience. Would go back for the bar!

Our meal at McCradys Tavern was amazing! We had swordfish that was cooked perfectly, roast chicken that was tender and moist, mashed potatoes with truffle oil that were silken decadence, and squid ink cavatelli with seafood sausage that was to die for. Dessert was an absolutely delicious baked Alaska. Our waitress could not have been more helpful, nice, and attentive. We would definitely go again and would love to try McCradys tasting location as well!
