When a restaurant is so venerable that it lands a spot on the National Register of Historic Places and Landmarks, you probably expect a classic menu that doesn’t rock the boat. But McCrady’s is anything but traditional, with an innovative menu that changes daily. Chef Sean Brock, whose popular Husk is #15 on this list, weaves touches of modernity into his definitely Southern-based cuisine; calico scallops with hominy and butter peas, pork belly with sunchokes and huckleberries, Grassroots Farms chicken with turnip and onion, and frozen grits parfait are examples. The bar has become known for its specialty pre-Prohibition-style cocktails.

Fantastic restaurant! Make sure you do pairing with wines. Delightful!
Rob Davis
My favorite restaurant in the south. You can get food anywhere, at McCrady's you taste art. Trust the Chef and his numerous sommelier, you will not be disappointed.
Paul Brown
Can't go wrong with the desserts. Carrot here, but try the frozen grits!!!!

Wonderful. Not super kid friendly, but friendly enough. Noodles w/cheese &/ butter + a protein if ya want. My kids are huge history buffs, so seeing where George Washington ate was awesome for them.

Mccrady's was outstanding! Best meal we had in charleston...and that's no easy task. High cotton seems like McDonald's compared to mccradys

Expect about a 2-hour dining experience, even if you go with the 4-course menu. You cannot go wrong here -- whatever you get will be delicious, and the selection rotates daily.
As a college student, I can't afford their full menu, but their bar menu is affordable and delicious! One of the few places you can get Madeira downtown. Great wine selection!

If you have a large party, definitely book the Chef's Table and order a bottle of Jameson. Tell them the pokemon Asians sent ya.

One of the best meals in my life -- revelatory from start to finish, with warm, excellent service. Can't wait to go back!
Inventive cuisine, pre-Prohibition cocktails and a gorgeous space that dates from the early 1800’s make McCrady’s one of the best restaurants that this city has to offer. [Eater 18 Member]

Chef Sean Brock brought Andrew Zimmern to his restaurant, McCrady's, where they cook and eat an Ossabaw pig. Andrew sampled fried pig's ears, Ossabaw terrine,Charleston gold rice and Ossabow jowl.
