Fodor's Review

Originally constructed in 1788, McCrady's features heart pine flooring, two fireplaces, exposed brick walls, and a pair of handsome brick archways. Its impressive legacy is supported by cuisine ranking among Charleston's best. Bear witness to the short ribs served with sweet corn and green tomatoes, or the beef tartare featuring small disks of egg yolk, ramps, and frisee. Or enjoy fresh fish from local waters, such as grilled cobia or flounder crusted with green peppercorn.

Meats include Berkshire pork so tender your fork leaves indentions, and aged duck roasted on the bone. A four-course menu featuring smaller dishes allows diners to taste several items. The unswerving McCrady's still delivers, thanks to talented chef Daniel Heinze and his crackerjack staff.

Awful Experience at McCrady's

I was at McCrady's last night, New Years Eve 2013, for dinner with my date. The food was absolutely awful (it was a 7 course chef's tasting menu). Each plate was priced at $150 for a total of $300 for both of us, or so we thought. Our waiter asked us if we wanted to have wine that complimented each course, which we did. At the fourth course, we were so disappointed in the quality of the food that we elected to leave without having the last two

courses. The food was that bad. I was stunned at the poor quality, and the experienced ruined our New Years Eve celebration. So when our bill came, we were charged almost $600 dollars for the disaster that was McCrady's restaurant. That's right, $600 dollars for two people. I am a resident of this area, and I can say that the meal we had at McCrady's restaurant was the worst I have ever had. I would not even to be able to rate this experience as a one star.
