This restaurant resides in an old building on the Lawrenceville square. A long-standing brick wall running the length of one of its dining rooms and the original, 5-inch wooden flooring provided an enjoyable dining atmosphere. There was also rooftop dining. A good selection of beers and hamburgers. The fish and chips brought an ample portion of flaky, moist fish, some... More

This visit in October was our fourth visit here. The first time we attempted to eat here they were closing early due to a slow night but the server was kind enough to recommend somewhere that we could still get some good hot food that was not fast food or eggs. His recommendation was not disappointing, but was not the... More

Early Saturday evening... Date night for us old marrieds... McCray's, or cross the street to Dominick's? Tough decision, as we love them both. Finally decided on McCray's and got in the short line. Since we were party of two, were quickly seated. Busy night, so our server, though pleasant, knowlegeable and helpful, seemed a bit overwhelmed. The food: we usually... More

Had a table of 12 at the last minute on week night and they easily accommodated us. Our group had an international mix of US, French and Mexicans and I can happily report all were satisfied with the selections and the meals. Service was a little slow, but to their Defense, the day we ate was the first release of... More

We arrived around 6 pm, a little before the rush. The atmosphere is comfortable dark wood, polished and glossy. Booths and separated areas gives a cozy feel to what could have been a large empty space. The bar is set apart, but glassed in, with lots of tchotchkes to tempt the eye. Our server was immediately attentive taking drink orders.... More

McCray's is very consistent, always good food, always good service, always great pub atmosphere. Our table had some special requests and they were to accommodate them with no problem and no hassle. McCray's is our go to restaurant in downtown Lawrenceville. Love that you can get a reservation!!

A neighborhood bar to me is a place that is convenient and consistent. While I have only been here once, I felt like McRays had both. I was meeting with some friends who live in the area so it was convenient to them. I live about 15 miles away, so while the building is really cool and the location is... More

We have been here 3 times in a year. Food and beer were great the first 2 times. The most recent visit we took my father in law. I think we must have had a new server. Food was all mixed up .. On a lighter note there were a bunch of Pokey-mon hunters here!
