We were in uptown Charlotte for Speed Street this past weekend, and decided to stop in at McCormick and Schmick's for dinner afterward. We were seated immediately and placed our orders for appetizers and drinks. We had the blue crab dip with pita chips as our appetizer, and it was delicious. The pita chips were nicely seasoned and light, very crispy. They went perfectly with the blue crab dip. Our waiter was exceptional and made very helpful suggestions for our dinner choices, since we'd never visited the restaurant before. He was very professional with a good sense of humor, and kept our table in smiles each time he checked in on us. He suggested a lemondade/sweet tea mix for our drinks, which was a very refreshing choice. Our kids loved it and we did as well. For our entrees, my son and I had the Ultimate Mixed Grill. It was absolutely delicious. We had a mix of salmon, stuffed shrimp, scallops and barbeque shrimp which was to die for. The salmon were nicely cooked on the outside, and were very creamy and tender on the inside. Although I loved everything on the plate, the barbeque shrimp were simply wonderful - I'll definitely have to order those again. The meal came with delicious mashed potatoes as well. Hubby ordered the steak with mashed potatoes, which he said was very good, cooked perfectly and very tender. My daughter ordered the Shrimp Scampi pasta, which she liked very much. For dessert, we had the double chocolate mousse cake and the blueberry chocolate cheesecake. Both of these were amazing - so tasty and creamy - just delicious. They were a perfect way to top off a great meal. Our experience here was a very positive one from start to finish, and we will definitely return. The food, ambiance and service were wonderful. Our whole family talked for the rest of the evening about how fantastic everything was. We highly recommend this McCormick and Schmick's, and look forward to returning in the near future.
