No one was there. The food was mediocre at best. Server was awful. Blah. Great location, should have had the big doors open, they didn’t.

Service was great. Excellent selection of beer. Food was fair to poor. Chicken wings tasted like they have been sitting around since lunch time. Noise level was extremely loud. You could hardly carry on a conversation with your friends sitting with you at the same table.

McCray's is definitely a neighborhood gem. Our server was great and made the birthday girl feel special.
The food was also delish!

My grilled chicken sandwich was very tasty. The donuts were horrible. Consistency of hush puppies shaped like donuts and no taste. Very overcooked. Waffles weren't the best... Nachos we're just okay. Chips not very crunchy

Turkey burger was dry and nothing more than a frozen patty. Husbands chicken was dry and spicy. Pimento cheese dip was melted cheese with very little pimentos. Very pricey for what we got, expected the food to be good for the price. Definitely will not go back!

We went to McCray's because it was convenient. Service was spotty. We had three different people coming by our table so it was confusing.
Two of us ordered burgers. When our order came there were no condiments provided - just dry hamburgers. So we had to ask for ketchup, mustard and mayonnaise. That should be a no-brainer for any waitstaff. I asked for pickles for my hamburger and got an up charge of 50 cents. How cheap are they!? Not the best value for a burger.

This place won’t last long at all unless they get it together with their service. Terrible bartender, and the nachos were actually good—won’t go back due to the awful service, though.

For the first time since it opened, a friend/co-worker and I enjoyed lunch. We had the turkey sandwich with fries and it was so good. Would definitely eat at McCray's again. Great service and an easy walk from many of the office buildings in Midtown. The place was clean and it had a refreshing atmosphere where you felt like you really got to escape from work for an hour. It is a great place for business meals, dinner, or gathering place before a show or to just enjoy friends with great food and also a relaxed get-away from all the hustle and bustle we all deal with every day. Take the time to stop by and live-a-little - enjoy!
