We really like eating at a seafood restaurant, where we can enjoy some of our local treasures. Discovering "McGrath's, was a Great Find!" Initially, from the looks of the building (from outside; fancy), we thought it to be too pricey, Not! It's Great, It's Affordable and McGrath's also features fresh seafood, steaks and coupon specials...

I love seafood, so please note all seafood restaurants get a good rating from me. We ordered the crab cakes appetizer which was very very good BUT for the price I expected there to be more crab cakes. Then for the main course we ordered the captains plate which we shared and was plenty of food for the 2 of... More

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
