McCray's Tavern at the West Village is definitely one of Smyrna's hidden gems. Redefining the concept of American neighborhood bar and grill, this instant classic is a cornerstone in Vinings, and a local favorite.
McCray's Tavern boasts 49 taps with an eclectic selection of draft beers that compliment its exceptional American fare. Everything is prepared from only the highest quality and freshest local ingredients. Besides our diverse menu, our executive chef always has something special to offer every night of the week. Creating specials such as bacon-crusted meatloaf, to Rack of Lamb, this local gastro pub serves anything but "bar food."

Our first visit 2 weeks ago was great. The food and service were excellent. This past visit wasn't as good. I will chalk it up to being a holiday- Halloween - and I have experienced poor dining out when it's any type off holiday.

We asked for outdoor seating and they wouldn’t seat us outside. Staff were not wearing masks and didn’t ask guests to when they weren’t eating. I saw people come up to the kitchen where food was sitting under the hot light with no masks on talking over peoples food. I was super disappointed

Food was good as always. Wish the staff would tighten up on the safety measures by keeping mask on at all times especially at the food window where they pick up orders to bring to tables.

My wife and I went to McCray's for Valentines Day. It was crowded but we were seated promptly. After that the service started to go south. The server could not answer any question about the craft beer menu. She just told us to look it over and she would be back. When she returned she took our order for two Sam's Winter Warmers and an order of Tavern Chips. The world was good. In short order she returned with the wrong drink and the wrong appetizer. She seemed confused even after we pointed out that we had ordered something entirely different. Ah well. New maybe. Mistakes happen. Another server brought the Tavern Chips and we dug in. A good portion of chips, cheese, bacon bits, and onion. Delicious. Unfortunately we had no beer to wash down this treat and had finished about half when the server finally arrived with our brews. Well, it was busy on Valentines. We ordered our meal. Both of us had the Matador, a burger with jalapeno peppers, bacon jam, cheese, and bbq sauce. The burgers got there in a reasonable amount of time and as usual they were delicious. Spicy, sweet, and filling. I ordered another beer when they came to help wash it down. Unfortunately that beer never arrived. The server failed to put in the order and didn't even seem to realize it. Thank goodness there was water at the table. Having finished our burgers the server came by and started cleaning up and told us she was bringing the check. Never asked about our experience or if we wanted anything else. Just, "I'll bring the check." Throughout the meal we both felt the service alternated between being ignored or being rushed to get out. I've had better service experiences at a McDonald's drive through. That said, the food was consistently good and the two beers we were served were tasty as well. I might be back. Might not. I can't recommend McCray's based on the service but the food is good so if you want to try it I would suggest going on a slow weeknight.

The restaurant overall is fine, great location, ambience, service and price to value, however the food was not as good as I hoped. We had the fish and chips and the grouper sandwiches.

Service and food coming out was much slower than normal. Our appetizers came out with our dinner. Drinks were slow to be refilled. Not the typical experience I have there so thinking they must have been short staffed.

Beer, wings & nachos were great. Good sports bar vibe with many TVs. Service was slow and inattentive although the restaurant wasn’t overly busy. We will go back but be sure to ask for a different waiter.

We went for Mother's Day brunch and made a last-minute reservation. Only available time was 2:45 and they stopped serving at 3pm. While most food options were still available, they did run out of a few items and other items were lukewarm instead of hot. This is typical of a brunch if your reservation is towards the end of the day. But overall it was a nice experience and the staff was very friendly.
