Outstanding is all I can say

We stopped in to McCrady's for a quick drink and did not want to leave. The artistry in making the cocktails was exceptional, the plates we tasted were amazing and even the popcorn that was served at the bar was exceptional. I cannot wait to go back.

Beautifully appointed restaurant with professional staff and exquisite food. We selected the pork belly and snapper as entrees followed by a chocolate dessert and cheese plate. Every bite was an explosion of flavor and we loved everything. It's $$$$$ but worth the experience for a special occasion.

McCradys offers fine dining with excellent service and foods that remain standards as well as new dishes al the time. The food was tasteful and special. This is suitable for a upscale business dinner as well as a romantic experience. The locals come her and avoid the more tourist focused places.

What can I say when waiters nod and lower plates to the table in unison.at the same time smile and joke with you too and the food is sublime then you can easily give them a five star rating. Foodies will love the food all locally sourced. Drinks were wonderful my husband is a martini snob. Mcrady's got it right... More

it was our lucky evening !! No table available at Husks so we ended up at McCrady's. What an extraordinary meal. We ordered a sampler of starters to share and followed with one meat and one fish main courses. Left speechless by the subtle explosion of delightful tastes left in our mouth dish after dish. Creative combination of ingredients always... More

Saw Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern discussing with the chef/owner of Husk and McCrady's. So when we realized we'd be in Charleston, I made reservations. Very good food; excellent service. Just felt like being in real Charleston. Portions are beautifully prepped. Not huge, but tasty. Drinks were excellent as well...good option for sitting at bar.
