Hi or miss on the food. Some was ok, some was not so much. One of our guests had the dirty rice, which tasted like they dropped the whole jar of Cajun seasoning into the mix. Even the waitress tasted it and agreed it was bad. No discount taken though. Will not go back.

Today's visit was for a late lunch after passing a certification exam (woo hoo!). I was looking for clam chowder and fish and chips and I wasn't disappointed. Everything tasted delicious and the beer batter on the fish was probably the best I've found in the Seattle area.

We went here thinking this would be a good place for some seafood that wasnt fried. The oyster on a half shell were good. The rest of our order was not so great. Waitstaff was attentive but the food was not. Flavors were not there and fish tasted bad. Bread was good though.

We visited this restaurant with family. The establishment had a nice atmosphere and decor. The food was served hot, fresh, and was eye appealing. The server was very professional, courteous, and friendly. We will definitely return to this great restaurant!!!

My brother and I had lunch here. We chose it due to proximity to where we were at that time. We both wanted fresh fish. Choices were trout and salmon. We ordered one of each but got two trouts! The trout was excellent. The side salad was fresh and plentiful. Aside from screwing up the order, the service was very... More

My wife and I ate at McGrath's several nights during our visit to the Seattle area. We initially stopped in just for drinks, but the service at atmosphere were both nice enough that we decided to get appetizers as well. The crab cakes were very good and the coconut shrimp were so delicious that we ordered a meal's worth of... More

We were seated quickly but then had to wait over and hour for our food. It was a midweek visit and the restaurant was not busy. We were barely acknowledged by the staff. Luckily we were in no hurry as we live in the area. Otherwise we would have left before being served. Once served the food was OK but... More

We visit McGrath's at least twice a month. Tony, behind the bar, is friendly and responsive. I just LOVE the fish and chips. They are the best fish and chips for miles around. There is a friendly and warm atmosphere as soon as you walk through the door. A must visit!
