Look for sign over East Bay Street and then go down adjacent alley for entrance. Low light old Charleston atmosphere with exposed brick and wood decor. Enormous bar. Creative menu options.

This place was really good. Interesting menu, great variety, fab service. It was recommended to us by a Charleston tour guide. I had oysters McCrady for an appetizer and grilled vegetables for my entree. Right size portions. Not cheap but delicious. This was a tavern dating back to colonial times.

This was a great find! We walked down the alley way to find this great food! Casual but delicately refined food, with great presentation and staff! I want to go back to Charleston just for this restaurant.

We ate here at the beginning of March with a friend visiting town. We had smoked trout, a patty melt and a bacon and egg with sauce and a tomato. We also got a couple of cocktails. All was great including the service of our waiter and we are planning on coming back.

Four of us had our first dinner in Charleston in this great old tavern. The food, atmosphere, service and libations were all excellent.

McCrady's is in a great location on an alley off of East Bay Street. Fabulous tavern like atmosphere inside. The menu is somewhat limited, but still plenty to choose from. At lunch the service was very slow. It took 7-8 minutes to just get water and then another 10 minutes before the server came back to take our order. The... More

When we arrived at 7.30 the noise from the music was deafening and we moved tables. The food was only average with nothing outstanding. The thing that really put us off was the attempt by our server to overcharge us for our wine,

We ate dinner at McCrady's Tavern our first night in Charleston, had just flown in. Recommended by our hotel when we asked for casual ambiance with excellent food. It is an old tavern down an alley, and had a well restored interior. It was great choice. We loved the setting, the food exceeded our expectations, and the service was great.... More

I love the Husks, but this place almost feels generic. Aside from one dish with the CG rice this is almost generic pub food.
