Loved the oysters .. we came for a late night dinner on arrival in Seattle. Perhaps we were late so service was a little gruff but we enjoyed the meal, and have to say the oysters (we tried all three kinds) were the highlight for us

This was a disappointment. It's a chain so we thought it's a safe bet on the food quality. Wrong - the food was pretty bad. Steak was overcooked and the fish tasted terrible. Either the food is not fresh or they need a new cook. Even the bread was stale. Our kids hardly touched their food and we had to... More

It was a sunny lunch meal and the view was great. Well worth the trouble to find parking. I recommend it for a place to just eat and watch the boats.

The service was great as was the food and the view. My wife wanted a crab louie but it wasn't on the menu. Our server went to... More

This is a beautiful restaurant and the ambience is soothing and warm for the size of things however the service was rushed even though they were not very busy and the food was just average. I had a rib eye and wasn't impressed and my wife ordered what she believed was a lobster dish. It had lobster in it but... More

McCormick s can always be counted on for a good meal. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the price - they seem a bit overpriced to me. In a city full of seafood places, this one is not that much more special than many of the others.
