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.

Grab a seat at the bar. Start with the Red Eye or the Eli Cash. Order some snacks then have Cappie pour you some fun new wines!
The chef's tasting menu changes nightly but is always a great bet, jam-packed with local seafood and produce.

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.

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.
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]

Unbelievable food - everything was so unique and delicious. Rivals any restaurant in Manhattan.

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.
