Taking our friend out as a thank you and this was her pick. Food was very well prepared and service very good. We were there around 5pm on a Friday night and there was no wait. Really enjoyed our meals and the social atmosphere. We had Halibut Parmesan, Stuffed Mushrooms, Sesame Chicken appetizer, Seafood Astoria, Shrimp Louie and Top Sirloin.... More

Having spent the last 4 years traveling the world I can honestly say I have not been to a restaurant that this low of service. I have had better service in 3rd world countries!!! It took over an hour and half to get our sodas and drinks, even then the waitress couldn't even get the order correct. Our food arrived... More

We have never had a bad meal at McGraths. The service one time was less than what we had come to expect but the manager took care of everything. We go there especially for the oysters since there is short supply of places to eat oysters in the half shell in our area. iIr is definitely worth our 80 mile... More

We all had very good meals. Mine was razor clams. Only complaint is that we had long waits for a table and for the main course to come.

Busy Saturday evening at the restaurant. We were seated promptly and serve was great. My steak turned out perfect and the razor clam dish was excellent. Daughter chose the McGrath's Irish nachos as a meal and they were done well. Dessert was good although the marionberry pie was only microwaved. The berry portion was heated but the crust was very...

In town on business and stopped in for a business dinner. Friendly service, good seafood cooked as ordered and at a more than reasonable price. I had the Teriyaki Mako Shark and it was decent. I recommend!

McGrath's is a must every time we are in Vancouver. The restaurant is a classic and incomparable when it come to West Coast seafood in my book. I'm a Flatlander, but do know good fish and shrimp when I get it. I've tried all the big names up and down the California coast, but nothing comes close. The shrimp and... More

In brief: Great seafood restaurant decor combines with average-to-below-average food, skimpy portion size, slow service, and overworking the staff to produce a might-as-well-go-somewhere-else conclusion. Some details: Let me begin with the fact that we arrived right at the beginning of their last open hour of the night. I don't think this should make any difference, but it may have been... More
