The tasting room at McCrady's is simply out of this world! The presentation of the food is extraordinary. The quality and the taste is even better. The service was top notch. Each course is presented and explained to you. The chef's all are outstanding. My...More

My wife and I went here for Sunday brunch and thought the food was quite good. The shrimp appetizer was fresh and tasty, and my shrimp salad entree was first-rate. My wife loved the lemon souffle pancake -- a wonderful take on an old standby....More

No it is not a family friendly restaurant. We took our 8 month old there last night and my cousin brought his 3 year old to a family event that was in McCrady’s Tavern. It was a lavish event that the family paid good money... More
