The location is nice being by the water. There is parking available close by. Server made me feel that he is more obligated rather than taking pleasure seeing guests enjoy their meal. I am not overlooking the fact that this is his job. The Caesar salad looked not as appetizing--the lettuce looked... read more

The food is good and the portion sizes huge. Service is friendly and efficient. Really comfortable ambience, and the views across S. union lake are awesome!

A wonderful restaurant, great food. Would recommend for a special occasion. The wait staff is very well trained - there when you need them, but not intrusive.

WE took a couple of our Veteran family members to dinner for an advertised Veteran meal on a Sunday Night. The staff was very unorganized but very polite. We sat in the bar and I noticed that the bartender was probably not their regular bartender I hope because we sat at the bar for 10 minutes before he said hello.... More

We come here for special date night dinners. The food is always fresh and there is always something new on the menu to try.The quality of the food is worth paying for. Service is above and beyond what you would expect.

Happy hour here is terrific. Nice location right on the lake can't be beat on a sunny afternoon. A couple of years ago a big chain bought out McCormick's and the completely remodeled this location and brought in all new staff after being closed for a while. Prices increased about 50%, strange combinations for dishes and a menu that never... More

My wife and I went there for happy hour, as we only wanted something light and it was near our hotel. Great value, and good food. Service as iffy. The host had a real attitude when we mentioned we were there for happy hour. Sorry, bucky, but if you offer it, people will come for it. And, it was a... More

I am a fan of McCormick and Schmik's, I frequented their location on 1st Avenue in Seattle, always had excellent food and service. Recently I ate at the Harbourside location and it may be that this location is a franchise and has been sold but whatever the reason the food here is disgusting. My caesar salad was sloppy, the croutons... More

This is a nice place with a very good happy hour, friendly service and great view. The staff seems a little disorganized but not irritatingly so. This is my favorite McCormick's in Seattle.

Let me say first that I LOVE McCormick and Schmick's Harborside. But the last time we visited, they were a tad disorganized. There was some miscommunication. Something. Maybe it was the wind storm that tore up their patio over the weekend, and they were just catching up. Maybe we were there too early (arrived at noon). The wait staff were... More
