Great lunch

Always good food here. The service is always good, great specials. This is a great "go to" spot for a business lunch. Never feel pressured, regardless of how busy it is.

By chance I stopped in for a late lunch over Happy Hour. Most of the riverside tables were taken so I had a limited view of the waterfront but it was a lovely day. They had a variety of options but I went with the coconut shrimp to avoid spicier alternatives and had a side of edamame dusted with sea... More

McCormick & Schmick's Restaurants have been part of the Portland scene for many years. They are now part of the larger Landry Restaurant group, but we are pleased that they have retained the local feel and high quality food and service they have long been known for. We recently visited the McCormick & Schmick's on the Waterfront in Portland for... More

Stopped in for a lunch at McCormicks and found the fresh affordable fare a reminder of great seafood! I forgot how much I love this place. Got crusted sole, potatoes, veggies, chowder and a drink for $11. Solid lunch.

I've been to many McCormicks around the nation but NEVER one with such an inflexible staff. Zero ability to substitute off the written menu. If the menu said green beans you could only get green beans even if 5 other veggies were on the menu. Others with me had the same problem so we ordered "as written" and swapped among... More

I made reservations for Thanksgiving dinner via OpenTable. We arrived a few minutes early and they were hopping. I was sure they would not be running on time. I was wrong! We were seated promptly, had superb service (with knowledgable recommendations by our server), great adult beverages, and delicious food. I had the traditional turkey dinner and The Manfolk had...

Upscale restaurant and reasonable prices. Good food, good service, and nice atmosphere. Restaurant even had a chef's special that included an appetizer, entree and desert.

Why pay big city prices for this restaurant? Nice atmosphere, great location by the water...but the food is decidedly mediocre...way under what is possible here....come on guys, step it up!! I know you like to make money but invest in better ingredients. Stick to their excellent selection of drinks here and skip the food.

I have been happy with all of my experiences at the McCormick and Schmick restaurants from Portland to Colorado. This place is crazy during happy hour and before some theater events that are taking place in the city. If you have time to go when the crowd is smaller you will not be disappointed in the food or service. I... More

Our waiter was new, the food temp had issues, and the way our to-go dish was handled needed to be addressed but Scott the GM followed up immediately upon hearing of these issues and promises a better experience next trip. I have been a loyal fan of Landry's for years so I'm sure this will be fixed.
