“Please clean the window sills”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

We enjoy dining at McGrath's. But, we've noticed on the last two visits that there were dead flies in the window sills. It's not very appetizing to be eating in a window booth and look over to dead flies. The first time we thought maybe it was just missed while cleaning...but then we returned a couple months later and sat in a different area of the restaurant. More dead flies and dust. UGH. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE clean the window sills!!!

Great service with a wide selection of seafood and nice daily specials. I had the halibut special that was superb!

“Good food, okay service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

I love the clam chowder. I enjoy the drinks and the cedar plank salomn. The service has been spotty, some very good, others leave you wanting better.

Came to McGrath's about 30 minutes before closing and received excellent food and service without any pressure to move it along. I will visit again when I return to Salem.

The service was quick and the fish tacos were delicious. Each time we visit we are pleased with the service and food. The pear, walnut salad is excellent as well.
