Dark, romantic, roaring fire. Food was delicious. Service was good but not overly pesky. Great drinks and desserts you. Pricey.

We stopped in for drinks and desserts on a Saturday night. It's quite dark inside, and was very warm (but it was sweltering outside too) but a really cool building and had a nice vibe. Bartenders were nice and attentive. We had some espresso martini's that were excellent and the bartender voluntarily gave us his recipe (and secret ingredient). Ordered... More

My husband and I ate here every year for our wedding anniversary when we lived in Charleston. We have always ordered from the tasting menu and either with wine pairings or ordered a bottle of wine. This is our favorite restaurant in Charleston with the food, service, location, and ambiance! I do have to say, the first time we ate... More

Worst service i have ever experienced at a nice restaurant. I eat out frequently at higher end restaurants, the food here was foos, but the service was so atrocious, we will not be back. Our waiter was rude and unprofessional. We were apparently inconveniencing him by eating there and thus barely came to our table. Portions are small but very... More

Sophisticated culinary experience with southern hospitality. I'm certainly not on the same page with many of the commenters. While some see a limited menu, I see a continually changing menu, with dishes crafted for whatever creative inspiration came that week. The drinks are so unique, with a very informative bartender to give you the history of probably all on the... More

I loved this meal and definitely appreciated the decor with exposed brick and great little dining alcoves. If you aren't a foodie this may not be your kind of restaurant. I am. And totally appreciated what they are doing. Read the menu before you make a reservation! My top recommendations: Ham and corn cake starter (this was a total WOW),... More

Outstanding food and ambiance. Four of us all ordered different things . Excellent drinks. Beautiful presentation of dishes. Salad of snow peas, goat cheese and beet was entirely different from any I have ever had. Loved it! Pork chop had a bed of pistachio purée with topping of leek and something else. Tender and so delicious. Scallops on fava beans... More

Outstanding. Food wise, this was one of the best restaurants we've been to in Charleston. The staff and superb service made it even better. What's also great about McCrady's is the unique location down a cobbled road off the side of Bay Street, bringing the southern charm Charleston is known for right to the front door. The food though, was... More

My daughter, who is a confirmed foodie in DC, and I had the chef's tasting menu. The server and somalier were knowledgeable and personable. The wine pairings were perfect. Each course was interesting and delicious. Everything about the meal was first rate. The chef even came by the table to speak to us. All in all a great treat.

Thank Allen M
