Food/fish was a bit greasy (fish and chips) and service very spotty. Ate at the McGrath's in Boise and was very pleased with meal and services. This location needs to improve.

My sister is in a home care and while visiting took out food for her for lunch and she raved about the fried shrimp. Another sister, brother-in-law and I returned for dinner later in the evening. The meals were all very delicious.

We went here for happy hour....food and drinks. It was awesome. Service was a little slow because they were extremely busy but was well worth the wait. We were able to enjoy conversation easily. Was not too noisy with all the people there. Happy hour menu was reasonably priced. The drinks were very good. I would visit this place again.... More

Just traveling through the Seattle area and stumbled into McGrath's because it was close to our hotel. Yes, its part of a small chain but we found the food, service and ambiance to be more reflective of what we might expect from a single location owner-operated restaurant. It was busy when we arrived but we were seated quickly. The wait-staff... More

You can get grilled seafood, without all the coverings and sauces, if you ask and are patient. The normal menu is heart-attack city. The salads are good if somewhat overpriced. This is a nice place to bring visiting friends/relatives because everyone can find something to eat. Plus my husband proposed here. So we come back a few times a year... More

I was really craving seafood and was told to try McGrath's. I am from the coast and accustom to very fresh, excellent seafood. I ordered the special of Columbia River Salmon with a baked potato and it also came with a salad and veggies. The waiter told me the fish would have a garlic cream sauce which I agreed to.... More

Great deals at happy hour on appetizer many are half price. The food here is good and the service was very prompt and friendly as well. I like this restaurant much better than Red Lobster! Only word of caution.... If you order linguini and have left overs, you will be grossed out when you reheat them and see the LARGE... More

If you're looking for a spot to take your elderly in-laws for a large, deep fried focused seafood dinner, look no further. They will amaze at the great deal they are getting for the shrimptacular with the coupon! If you are going out for seafood, save time and money and pick up a much better meal of frozen seafood entrees... More

Good choice of seafood or beef and other entries, delicious desserts. Easy central location to find and park at. Only drawback is can't make reservations and some wait times are long on weekends
