We are lucky enough to have family that travels to Alaska and Mexico to fish, so we have been spoiled with REAL fresh fish every summer. I tend to stay away from seafood places because we are so used to the wild fish from those trips. However... Mc Grath's knows what they are doing. I have ordered salmon, halibut, and... More

I have been to McGrath's Fish House a couple of times before and found it to be just ok. However, this time the meal was outstanding. They were featuring fresh halibut and I had a Parmesan Halibut dish that was wonderful. the service was very good as well.

We have been going to this restaurant for years and it has always been good. The service is good as is the food and the prices are reasonable.

Although we usually gravitate to our favorites. The Captain's Platter has *lots* of food! I like the Wedge Salad.

Love the Salmon, my favorite. Shrimp is good too, but a word to the wise, don't order steak at a fish house...it tastes like fish!

My husband and I went here for dinner on a semi-busy night. Our waiter was friendly but way overworked - once we were seated it was at least 10 minutes before we were even acknowledged. We order our food and are finally served. My whole plate was literally dripping in oil because it was so saturated. I couldn't eat half... More

I eat here at least once each time I come to Salt Lake. They know how to batter fish and do it right!! I think the fried platters and fish and chips are the best! I truly like the salmon ( Baked ). The restaurant is clean and the staff are well versed in the menu. I will go back.

I was saddened to see how the service and quality has diminished over the years. The price compared to what you get is definitely not worth the value. The place was too cold, I felt like I was in an ice box with the fish. With so much competition in this area this restaurant really needs to step up their... More
