The place only has a fixed price, multiple course meal. The portions are small while the price is very high and not worth it. The staff is marvelous--the best part of the experience--- and the location is very nice. But for the money, there are many other places that are just as nice and provide equally good meals with choices!... More

The restaurant is in an alley and in a restored barn/garage or something. It is beautiful, the service is wow over the top. The food was the most disgusting tasting food I have had in a very long time. It looked beautiful and if they had just made sure it tasted good before serving it would have been amazing. This...

Just went to the bar, but had some of the best cocktails I've ever had! Eli Cash was amazing. The bar snacks were also delicious. Perfect pre-dinner spot. Plus, you get to drink where George Washington once did!

There were 6 of us who dined at McCrady's on Thanksgiving Day last week. We visited the restaurant with high expectations because of the positive reviews in Trip Advisor and Open Table. Our experience was exactly the opposite of what we expected. The quality and quantity of the food presented probably ranks as one of the most overrated restaurants we... More

The restaurant is lovely, with brick and artwork everywhere, and tables far apart so you can have quiet conversations. McCrady's has a prix fixe, four-course menu with many tempting offerings. We went with the wine pairings, as we were having different courses, and all but one were excellent. My crab appetizer enhanced by liquid kale was as delicious as it... More

We were excited to go there. World class restaurant supposedly. Mediocre at best. Spend your money elsewhere.

As locals we on occasion dine at Peninsula Grill, SNOB, Grill 225, McCrady's, etc. It had been a while since we'd been to McCrady's. We had a 3:00 pm reservation on Thanksgiving. They were offering a 3 course dinner for $65 per person. Upon arrival we were seated, ordered a bottle of wine and later our selections for dinner. My... More

McCrady's has a nice interior, but terrible food. The food presentation suggests haute cuisine. But the food is no good. For example the duck two ways: the breast was hard to cut with a knife; chewy with gristle; and the confit much too salty. The wine pairings unimpressive. The service was amateurish. McCrady's has a distinguished past, but seems now... More
