Good place for fish

We've eaten here with another couple and once on our own. While the fish is good, the menu tends to be on the heavier side with lots of 'breading' going on. There are grilled options which are good, but when we've ordered w/out breading, the entree is bland. The service is attentive but it's... read more

McGrath's has excellent service and very very good fish! Although it's a chain, it hasn't the "chain feel". All the meals I've had there have been quite good. Most come with salad and warm bread, and are very satisfying.

When we drove past here on our way to another area of Vancouver going to the supermarket I knew we had to come back for lunch to give it a try. I've gone to one in Beaverton Oregon before so figured it would also be good and wasn't disappointed. We both had the Grilled Parmesan Crusted Cod with salad instead... More

First time experience at this chain. Cute, yet kitzy design. Liked the privacy granted despite the size. The waitress was very attentive and did a nice job. I got a wood grilled skewered scallops and shrimp. They were fine maybe a bit overcooked. What was most disappointING was the accompanying potato. It was way over cooked and seemed to have... More

The restaurant has a lovely patio for outdoor dining. The food was average. The fish was OK; vegetables soggy. The tossed salad and bread made up for the rest of the meal. I would have expected more given the price and that seafood is their speciality

Very clean, great food and best of all it is quaint enough that you can actually carry on a conversation at your table and not be drowned out by the loudness like some restaurants have. Prices and service were great along with the food...HIGHLY RECOMMEND you have dinner here for sure.....

Seafood was pretty good, not the best I've ever had. But the service at the end of our meal slowed tremendously. We had to search out our server for the check. The best thing about the restaurant was the fact that it was next door to our hotel and we didn't have to drive. I would have preferred to drive.

Atmosphere and service were wonderful. Lots of different foods to choose from. I wasn't hungry for fish so I had a hamburger. It was the best restaurant hamburger that I have had in a long time. Donna F.

Appetizer & entrée were excellent. Service was fast & efficient. The menu has choices for all, even if you are not a seafood lover. The atmosphere is good for an intimate dinner or a large & fun party. Plenty of parking.

My family went for a late lunch. It was delicious! I had the half sandwich with clam chowder. The parm chicken sandwich was the best I've ever had. My son (since it was his birthday) ordered off the adult menu and had 4 different kinds of shrimp. He was in heaven. My daughters fish and chips off the kids menu... More
