Visited the bar for a appetizer and cocktail. Bartender not very experienced in creating cocktails. Food took a long time - I wouldn't return.

Buying a discount card lead us to try McCormick & Schmicks again. I ordered the premium seafood plate consisting of stuffed shrimp, fried shrimp, salmon, scallops and broccoli with mashed potatoes a cup of clam chowder plus a glass of wine. The chowder was fair, the mashed potatoes were cold, the broccoli was salty and the price was high. Waiter... More

I had the shrimp trio (after they brought me the right meal ;) ) it was great. We had lots of appetizers. The stuffed prawns were fantastic. Would eat a whole meal of them. The calamari was good too. The clam chowder was plain and may have been out of a can. The taste and look were just not right.... More

The fish is consistently good, as is the service. There are a few menu items for those who don't like fish. This is a great place to try new fish as they prepare it very well, in a variety of ways.

My husbands Filet Mignon tasted like it had tenderizer and for a 30 dollar steak, that shouldn't be so. It also was good more medium than medium rare. And actually it didn't even seem like a filet, more like top sirloin. My Mahi Mahi was delicious, though it was funny that it didn't really seem like Mahi either. But I... More

Steak lovers, here is the place for you! Variety of steaks awaits and they are tasty as well. The crab cakes are ok but the main event - steaks - are perfection.

This restaurant is open Christmas Day on a limited basis and a great place to go if you don't like to cook. They had fabulous oysters and my lobster was great. My pal had a steak and enjoyed it.

Everything that you want form a steak house! Great food and a vast selection of drinks ... Crispy salads with great ingredients ... The fish is great too. This location is a little small and lacks some ambience - the food will never disappoint!
