“I recommend Long Johns Silver”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

We had dinner reservations, the place was not busy but we had a 20 minute wait for some unforseen reason, We were seated and we did enjoy our server he was very nice and cordial. Only after that was when I should have gone to Long Johns for a compariable dinner.I did make a complaint on McCormicks web site but like anything else they don't seemed to be concerned. So I strongly suggest that there are better seafood places with a much better attitude towards how to please a customer..

“Going DOWNHILL”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

I have never been a fan of the entrees here (we ate dinner 4 times here and TWICE the fish was still partially frozen) BUT the drinks at the bar and the appetizers were top shelf. NO MORE...........the drinks are half the portion they used to be and so are the appetizers. My son in law had a hamburger which used to be huge and now it was all burned up and slightly bigger than a White Castle. We won't go back.

“worth the cost”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

It is expensive, but since the seafood/fish is flown in fresh everyday, you can tell. for me, it is a place for special occassions. i have read that their happy hour has some good deals. i will try that some time.

“easy tasty and quick.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

I went to this place for a meal on my own. They have a reasonable choice of foods, mainly seafoods. I had a plain grilled fish which was simple and very tasty. They also had a local craft beer which they allowed me to taste before I ordered it, which I appreciated. I had a berry creme brulee dessert which wasn't quite as good as I expected, presumably due to out-of-season fruit.

“Great food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

The food here is very good. The service is spotty. Sometimes it's great, other times, not so much. And it's pretty pricey.
