McCray's Tavern - Midtown
My wife and I have eaten McCray's double Filets many times and they have ALWAYS been GREAT. However, this time; we each received one filet cooked a "perfect medium with the 2nd one cooked well done. We sent both of the second ones back and both of the replacement filets were "well done" again. We communicated our dissatisfaction to the manager who noted that on all four overdone steaks were caused by being left on the plate too long (which made little sense since we cut the replacement steaks immediately plus in ALL of our previous Filet meals both filets were still perfectly "medium" during our entire time of eating our meals). We later determined that Chef Miguel who usually cooks our filets perfectly was not cooking but supervising. Our server was not very attentive nor focused. Service was also never a previous issue. My wife and my conclusion is that this was our first dinner at McCray's on a Sunday (prior to a concert) and we normally dine at McCray's on Thursdays or Fridays...
It was amazing
First experience at McCray's. The food was very good and the pineapple jalapeno margarita was delicious! Would definitely go back!
Food and service are very good, but hard to have a conversation because it's so loud.
The menu has the usual tavern food as well as a few dishes not usually on a tavern menu. We had pasta and an entree salad, both of which were very good. If you go, ask for Ariana. She is a great server - friendly, efficient, knowledgeable. She checked on us frequently and was attentive without hovering. This is a good place for a group of friends to go after work for drinks and dinner.
Chicken and waffles were great
Always a great time at McCray’s!
It was good food and nice ambience but the service was slow taking in consideration that it took more than an hour to complete our business lunch.
This is my "go to" when I'm meeting friends !! Parking next door too !! Can't beat it :)
Restaurant was not well staffed. It Took forever to get drinks and water cups were never refilled. My husband ordered a second beer and it came after we finished eating. Steak was undercooked and fries were cold—when we mentioned this to staff we were told they could warm up the fries. Food was pretty tasty but the whole experience was terrible for the price!!
Poor and slow service
NYE at McCrays- it was fine, we were seated upstairs which wasn’t fun for a NYE event. The “cash drop” was McCray’s cash and the midnight buffet would feed about 10 people. Servers weren’t even aware of what the event had to offer. It was a free event so hard to really complain but wouldn’t attend next year. Food was great though so I’ll return but just not for events.
Even though we were running late to our reservation on a busy night, the staff did not hesitate holding our table when I called them. Food was great and in a packed house, after the game, we did not have to wait additional time for drinks or food service.
Amazing place...great atmosphere and menu. Alexis was awesome as our server! Everything Scott McCray has done in Midtown is top shelf! Well done to an old friend in the industry.
GREAT service, good food, friendly atmosphere.
Lots of choices for a casual dinner
1 star for everything because we couldn’t actual taste the food, experience the ambiance or anything else. Made a reservation, walked there, checked in, and then we were told they “were on a wait” of about 20 to 30 mins. That’s the equivalent of not taking reservations, so I would suggest they do that.
I always enjoy my dinners at McCray's!!
The service was good and the folks friendly. Unfortunately the Buffalo chicken flatbread was cold and not flavorful. The salad was good. In fairness, they did apologize for the flatbread and compensated us for what we did not eat but I simply can’t give them a top rating. I’ll try them again another day and hopefully be able to give a better rating.
Great for watching football and enjoying some good bar food.
I met a group of friends on a Tuesday evening for dinner. The food was great. Service was a tad slow but not terribly so. The noise level increased 100-fold once the music got started, making conversation very difficult, and we were seated pretty far away from the stage. I had the Montfort burger without the bun, and the steamed veggies on the side. Both were very good.
Overall, we had a great time and I got my voice back the next morning. :)
Went as a large group of 7 dinner. Dining area was served by 2 but the speed was mediocre. Drinks took forever to arrive. Food on the other hand was also slow. The food itself was good. Ordered brisket plate. If service can live up to their high marks then I will rate it 5.
Great experience! Service and food were spectacular!
Had a great time! The service was good and the food was pretty good. Definitely will be back to try other things on the menu!
Shrimp and grits was fabulous
The Filet was OUTSTANDING and one of the best I have ever eaten. Chef Miguel does a GREAT Job!!
Saturday morning... Bloody Mary bar is excellent! White egg omelets and crispy hash browns very good. Great service!
Great food, good drinks, reasonably priced. Server was very efficient and did a good job, but no personality; acted like she really didn’t want to be there.
McCray’s never disappoints. The service was a bit slow and that was disappointing but the amazing food made up for it! Also, it was the first Sunday of football season so it was a little crowded...maybe that’s why the service was a little shaky.
Good experience. Don’t enjoy paying to park.
Only in town for a couple days and popped in for Sunday brunch. Amazing food and great service! Looking to come back next time I’m in town!
Love McCrays! I live in LaGrange Georgia and we frequent before going to the FOX. They are very timely and we have never had a bad dish. I had the southwestern bowl with Salmon the other night and it was delish!! easy parking in deck as well!!
EVERYTHING was OUTSTANDING!!

We reserved a table through OpenTable and the hostess immediately recognized our reservation. Our waitress came to us promptly, offered some spot-on suggestions, and was great. Food was FANTASTIC and came out fairly quickly. We didn't have any brewskies but I'd love to come back for drinks on a busy night as this seems like a pretty fun place.
Great brunch menu and drink specials. Service was fast and restaurant had nice vibe and very clean
Worst service I’ve had since moving to Midtown. A-Z. Food was ok, drink was below par. The restaurant was not busy in any way but it still took almost an hour to get our food.
Great friendly place to go watch a game. Burgers were very good
Great food and good energy. Great location as well.
Walked in and immediately liked the atmosphere. Beautiful bar, cute wooden tables, cool lights. Sat at our table for a few minutes before a server came. She greeted us like she hated her job. We got drinks - cheap and good. We ordered food and for the price - I thought it was decent. I got the shrimp and grits and my boyfriend got the Reuben. He said he was a little disappointed with his meal. I think the place is good for bar food but I was expecting something a little nicer.
We arrived on time and were told they had no tables available despite our reservation.
