    Inventive cuisine, pre-Prohibition cocktails and a gorgeous space that dates from the early 1800’s make McCrady’s one of the best restaurants that this city has to offer. [Eater 18 Member]

    Wonderful. Not super kid friendly, but friendly enough. Noodles w/cheese &/ butter + a protein if ya want. My kids are huge history buffs, so seeing where George Washington ate was awesome for them.

    try the macaroni and cheese dish "A pie called macaroni," if you like broccoli get the baked broccoli side, and for a perfectly seasoned steak, the steak a la royale is a home run. A+

    Excellent cocktails. Tasting menu is superb, worth the splurge: ours included smoked trout, delicious pork loin, lots of seasonal vegetables. Beautiful adaptive reuse of the old carriage house.

    Sit at the bar with Kevin & Chuck. Great cocktails and food! Love the Dirty Margarita...ask Kevin. It is a cross b/t Dirty Martini & Margarita. Delicious. shrimp pasta dish & beef tartare rock.

    As a college student, I can't afford their full menu, but their bar menu is affordable and delicious! One of the few places you can get Madeira downtown. Great wine selection!

    Expect about a 2-hour dining experience, even if you go with the 4-course menu. You cannot go wrong here -- whatever you get will be delicious, and the selection rotates daily.

    My favorite restaurant in the south. You can get food anywhere, at McCrady's you taste art. Trust the Chef and his numerous sommelier, you will not be disappointed.

    Expect a genteel experience, with white tablecloths & formal service, but a farm-to-table sensibility, serving artistically plated compositions like celeriac baked in hay, pear, pecorino & truffle. Read more

    Grab a seat at the bar. Start with the Red Eye or the Eli Cash. Order some snacks then have Cappie pour you some fun new wines!

    Chef Sean Brock brought Andrew Zimmern to his restaurant, McCrady's, where they cook and eat an Ossabaw pig. Andrew sampled fried pig's ears, Ossabaw terrine,Charleston gold rice and Ossabow jowl.

    My wife and I tried the swordfish and it was amazing. And what a great space and bar. Very romantic setting. We will definitely be returning here on future visits to Charleston.

    If you're vegetarian, don't do a tasting menu or prix fixe. You'll leave hungry. 3 courses of straight vegetables devoid of any carbs, protein, or cheese.

    This is Michelin star quality food for 60$ a person, hurry up and get here because if the night we were there is any indication they won't last.

    The shrimp bisque was delectable, the local fish was so-so, but the vanilla brûlée ice cream was magnificent. Service was impeccable.

    Neither as inventive not as good as Husk, but easier to get into on short notice. Service was all over the map and extremely slow when we visited. Get the ham.

    From acclaimed chef Sean Brock, McCrady's is a limited-seating chef's tasting menu that mixes great Southern lowland cuisine with modern twists. 2-hour course combines over 16 different tastings. A++!
