Dined here with my 1 1/2 y/o son who has many food allergies. The staff was very accommodating and the kitchen even put on a separate pot of oil to fry his potatoes. My food was amazing and the service was great. Thank you
What a lovely and spot for a special occasion! For beverages, my Valentine and I tried two craft cocktails and the Tempranillo while we feasted on many of their appetizers. Instead of getting entrees, we made a tapas-style meal with the juxtaposed caviar and tater tots which were (not surprisingly) the best I’ve ever had. We also shared some oysters on the half shell which were the small, but tasty. The foie gras pate and the bone marrow dish were both served with wonderful fresh bread and the waiter also brought out these amazing pretzel rolls with salted butter. I was hoping to have more of the bone marrow flavor in the sauce, but it ended up being a creamy pool of umami flavor for the escargot to swim around in. The beef tartare was flavorful and was served with these onion puffs that had the texture of chicharrones but just the right bitterness to accompany the tartare. We ended our gluttonous feast with the affogato and beignet dessert...each fluffy beignet was singing with the smooth notes of espresso and chocolate.
We had a couple of really good things and some super disappointing food and the service was not great. Two of us ordered the Roasted Chicken which was tasted great; however, one of the other guests ordered the Pork Porterhouse which came to the table cold, like really cold. All of our plates were not quite hot, but we let it go because eating room temperatue chicken is not the end of the world but the pork was inedible. Rather than make another Pork Porterhouse, they simply heated the existing pork, which had already been cut into (most likely by placing it back on the grill or in the oven) and it totally overcooked it to the point that it became too tough to eat. We also had an order of Crinkle Cut Fries which were terrible. They were fried but they were totally soft and super oily. We asked and they were supposed to be crispy (only one in the bunch had any texture). When we were discussing the Pork Porterhouse, we told them about the Crinkle Cut Fries but they never replaced them or addressed them. Surprising that this happened at McCrady's Tavern. It was a Sunday night so maybe that had something to do with it. Also, our server was not up to par. He tried, but again, maybe it was the Sunday night team. However, I will say that the manager who came to address the situation, was super apologetic and was clearly concerned. One other thing to mention is that the Pomme Puree side was really fantastic. No reason to go back. Lots of other great places in Charleston.
We enjoyed an appetizer & a salad off the specials menu & an entree from the special menu. The appetizer of scallops was excellent! We also enjoyed the swordfish on the regular menu & it was very tasty. The third in our party ordered filet menu & asked for it to be cooked ‘medium’ & it was red pretty much throughout. He ate it anyway & it was a delicious piece of meat but would have preferred for it to have been cooked closer to medium.
Our waiter was ok...very flat...forgot to tell us some items were unavailable on the menus until we asked abou them. It’s a pricey place for ‘flat’ service.
First visit to Mcrady’a Tavern. The food was very good! I had the chicken special and my husband had the swordfish. Both were delicious! We also tried the escargot as an appetizer and loved it! The display might scare you a bit but you don’t eat the escargot out of the marrow bone or anything. We took our bone home to give to our puppy 😉 We will be returning!
We had our anniversary dinner here and were delighted with the service and food. Since we wanted to go more casual the atmosphere was perfect. If we had wanted more specialness then I would choose the regular McCradys. The deviled clams were really outstanding and spicy as advertised. If you do not care for the heat then avoid these but we both loved them. My wife ordered the ribeye medium and it was still a bit more red than that but within a minute or so longer on the grill. It was a very good steak, rivaling all others in town. I got the deviled lobster and it was also about a minute short of perfect and not near as spicy as the clams. I would have kicked it up a notch. We ordered a side of creamy mashed potatoes and they were very good, very smooth, not starchy. We finished with the Baked Alaska and it was a very good, updated take on the dish.
We loved this place! We will be back for sure. It was a memorable experience and a very nice evening out.
Oysters were best I have had in a while service was superb great overall experience
Dining at one of Sean Brock's restaurants has been a bucket list thing for me for a while. I was not disappointed to say the least. The food was delicious, especially the avocado toast. I'll be trying to figure out how to make that for a while! The croque madame was superb and the Quiche Lorraine with lobster was special.
Good night with friends. A Charleston in place.....and justified.
We have never had such a short drink in Charleston.We will not be returning.The entrees were also very small.our waiter was wonderful but everything else was not good.We
When I made reservation I was not aware that we would not be able to order from the normal menu. There was a limited menu that required you choose an appetizer as well as a dessert, neither of which I was interested in ordering. On top of that, the price of the fixed menu was not advertised. Typically this type of menu is served during restaurant week where the prices are MAXED at $45. At McGradys tonight, the price was $70 each for a more limited menu. This should have been advertised before you could make a reservation. I would have chosen a different place with no hard feelings.
Long time Charleston eater.
we went for their Valentines dinner. It was quite pricey. Nothing special., No
recognition that it was a special night. Service was great as was the
lobster,our main course. Can't say the same for appetizer or the
"baked Alaska" dessert. Have not been there for years. Last time
I was there it was a dress up outstanding continental venue. I will try
it again but consider it another casual restaurant not for special occasions
Very pleased with food, table service and bartender. It has been quite some time since we patronized McCrady's. It was well worth the distance. We plan to go back again soon. Enjoyed a short time at the bar and then taken to our table right on time. Will definitely spread the word of our pleasant experience.
Valentine’s Day pre fixed menu was not my favorite meal at the restaurant. Lobster was great, but chilled raw oyster preparation wasn’t the best I’ve had. Pork belly was delicious. I love the full menu options at the Tavern and generally love McCrady's
Service was great. Taste of the food, no side options due to the “special” Valentine Day menu and value for the cost was poor to fair.
Totally disappointing. I don't know why this restaurant gets such good reviews. The food was neither interesting nor particularly tasty. There was nothing creative nor noteworthy about the meal beyond being heavy and banal.
Our early Valentine celebration at McCrady’s was lovely. Wonderful food, attentive service and comfortable atmosphere. Highly recommend it!
Incredible as always. I tried the roast chicken this time, and it did not disappoint. Don’t hesitate, just go.
