The fish and chips didn’t do it for me this time...too much batter. But my wife and son thoroughly enjoyed their ribs and buffalo chicken panini. And the skillet brownie with vanilla ice cream was a delicious shareable dessert for all of us! We’ll be back to try more.
They were out of just about everything but didn’t bother to tell until we tried to order. They were out of cod, grouper and salmon. Waitress would disappear for 15-20 minutes at a time....had to keep asking for drink refills. We ended up ordering food we did not want and that tasted like cardboard.
If you are thinking about this establishment....do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.
First, the brunch comes with a mandatory 20% gratuity. This was not told to us up front. I was disappointed in the quality of the food and the service. There was not a lot of variety and the hot dishes we like warm at best. The dessert selection was disappointing as well. Our server allowed finished plates to pile up on the table. Needless to say, I will not go back for brunch again.
We had a great time. Waitress was wonderful.
I went here with my Son and his family. The food was great, had a wonderful craft beer and all of us really enjoyed ourselves. Special shout out to our waitress who was wonderful!
Great Place for a Birthday Dinner- everything was perfect...making a reservation ahead of time, was great, because we just walked in and sat down. ....just perfect meal, service and beer!
Our waiter, Alex, was horrible. The rooftop was fun, but the service was terrible.
I'd made a reservation requesting the roof for a Sunday evening at 5 pm. The hostess walked us to the stairs to the roof then passed the menus off to me and walked back to her stand - not even seeing if a table was available much less actually seating us. There was one table available which was yet to be cleaned which we took. Then we began our wait process. It took us over an hour that early on a Sunday to finish our dinner - and that was foregoing dessert due to time constraints. It appeared as though only one server was responsible for the entire rooftop area and was pretty much run ragged. There were empty tables inside downstairs and I couldn't help but wonder if there wouldn't have been some servers that could have been reassigned to help out upstairs, In spite of the poor service, the rooftop is a draw and we all enjoyed our meals.
very good service for a party of 7 and the brunch menu items were very good.
Great environment with really good food, our server wasn’t the best but not bad enough to ruin dinner! When in Lawrenceville definitely worth checking out!
The food was great, as was the service. We'll definitely be back the next time we're in the neighborhood.
The chicken tasted like wet cardboard but other than that it was nice
Love the upper outside deck for dining. Coleslaw was just horrible. Has no taste at all. Burgers good.
We always have a great time here. We meet our friends here because it's a good half way point for us. We have not been disappointed.
We were about 15 minutes earlier than our reservation since traffic is always hard to gauge and the staff seated us promptly upon our arrival. We ate there on a Friday night around 6 pm and were in the second room (where the stage area is) and the seating space is great-- you aren't crammed together like in other restaurants so there is a bit of privacy when talking. Our server was responsive, friendly, and knew the menu well. A bonus is their prices for a dinner are very reasonable (although individual sides are a bit too $)--- overall their prices are more reasonable and quality of food is better than most large 'chain' restaurants. I opted for the wedge salad which was very large and enough for me but I didn't know at first so I ordered a side of pasta salad for $4.00. I would not order the pasta salad again as it was rather bland and for $4.00 wasn't much worth it for the blandness and size. To be up front, the server did tell me the size before I ordered as I had asked--- I just thought it would have had more flavor and uniqueness than it did so live and learn- I won't order again. My husband had a burger and he liked it very much. Was cooked perfectly and tasty. He did order onion rings which was an add'l cost and said he wouldn't again as there weren't that many and it's an extra $1.50. We will be back as our experience was overall very good- staff were attentive and the food was good with decent prices. I am glad we had reservations... when we left the restaurant a bit after 7 pm the area by the front door was packed with people waiting.
Not a lot of options on the menu. The grits were under cooked. The stuffed French toast was just “OK”. It wasn’t the worst brunch that I’ve ever had nor was it the best.
Will I go back? Probably not.
We love McCray's and went for the special Burgers + Brews event in Gwinnett County. The $7 burger was Crazy good! We loved this event and hope it continues in the future. Now to my one criticism. The burger doesn't come with a side (that's fine). We normally order sandwiches that include a side and order the sauteed spinach. So this day we each ordered the sauteed spinach knowing we would have to pay for the sides. We got a tiny amount compared to what they normally serve and the cost was $4 each! We both agreed it was way overpriced for the few bites of spinach we each got. Other than that, great as always!
We knew it would be loud, so the noise score was affirmation. No problem with noise. Fun place. Our server was fantastic
Chose McCray's when a relative came into town. Unfortunately, we didn't realize it was trivia night and it was very noisy. Otherwise, the food is good but the Cali Cosmo is what we went there for specifically.
Great atmosphere, great food, great service and great management.
They did a great job making Valentines Day special.
It was lovely! Great food, great staff! Will come back soon!
We arrived at 4.20 and waited at least 5 min before someone came up and tried seating us ,but i explained i had made reservations with open table for valentines, I was told some one else would help me and they walked away. I waited another 10 min before another person came up and explained they were not finished setting up,,,I am glad that i did not take the 4;00 RESERVATION or i would of had waited 45 min to be seated. Finally we were seated and the ambiance was very festive and my date was very impressed. The real roses were a nice touch. The lobster rolls were a little over done,not golden brown but dark brown,but they were still very good,should be on the main menu all the time. The Chicken Marseilles and the Sea Bass were done to perfection very tender. The Red Velvet desert was to die for. Are waitress Sarah was very attentive and helped in ordering.
The food and service were both fantastic!! I highly recommend. It's quite noisy so not the best if you're looking for a quiet romantic spot.
My husband and I and another couple had dined at McCray's in Dec. and each couple was given a sealed envelope that had a coupon inside. Each couple was told to bring it back unsealed to receive the offer inside. We specifically came back to McCray's to use our coupons. However, the waiter told us that only one coupon could be used per table. We felt this was unfair since we were given the coupons when we dined together before and each couple paid separately. The food was good. The Cosmo was not good. The waiter wasn't the best.
Consistent food quality and excellent service. Menu items are solid, but would appreciate more dinner specials. Always enjoy !
McCray's never disappoints. Our group of theatre season ticket holders goes to lunch before each performance. We used to try a different restaurant every time. Because we have had such good experiences at McCray's, we've decided to go there exclusively.
The restaurant/bar was a bit noisier than usual as the college bowl games were on, but it didn't bother us. The food and service were wonderful, as usual. They were getting ready for their New Year's Eve Masquerade party later that night so they servers were dressed up!
Our server was amazing! Disappointed that they had run out of French fries and pork chops. Will know next time to request a table away from the bar to make conversation easier and a table that is not a high-top because my legs are too short.
have been there before awesome as always and a very cozy place
Way too noisy to even talk to my friends.
Great service and really good American food that doesn’t break the bank!! Nice homey atmosphere
The food was amazing!
The summer weather inspired us to find a place to eat outside and McCray' fit the bill. We had a great server, a refreshing round of Dark and Stormy's and a good all-around meal: chicken parmigiana + salad. We thoroughly enjoyed our early dinner on the roof!
Service was as bad as i can remember when eating out. Shame as we were looking forward to the evening with friends and family. Food was average, but it was the service that really spoilt our evening, The server was totally inattentive towards our party, with the final straw being dessert which took almost 30 mins to arrive, long after we had paid our check!
The rooftop dining is the reason we opted to choose McCray's Tavern. The best part was the buffalo chicken dip egg roll. Beyond that my steak frites salad was grizzly and unflavored. Suggestion: please salt your lettuce before dressing it.
I like the convenience of making the reservation online. Overall the restaurant, service & food was great. I did have a coupon for one free entre, but didn't realize till I got home I got free desert instead which was almost half the price of an entre. I would still recommend the restaurant. We celebrated my birthday between lunch and dinner so it wasn't that busy or noisy. The waitress was very nice.
Too loud for my taste. I don't like to have to worry about hearing the person seated across from me. Other than that it was a great experience. They can and excellent service.
McCrays is one of our favorite spots on the square. Everything was great as usual!
