This may be the business office, there is no a resturant here. It is located by the water which is obviously not in the middle of downtown!

This is a wonderful setting overlooking the Willamette River. The food is average....nothing on the menu has changed for a very long time, Presentation of food is about as bland as you can get, Not even a twig of parsley to add color to the plate. They really need a new chef to liven things up on their food preentation.

A family celebration for a college graduation was highlighted by the personal service given to our large party even during a very busy time for the restaurant. The food was fantastic.

Came here for my husbands birthday dinner and it was perfect. The view is amazing. I'm glad we had a reservation, so we didn't have to wait. Although the seating around the bar seemed very nice as well. The atmosphere was nice. The waitress was phenomenal, very accommodating. We ordered the crab tower as an appetizer, it wasn't quit what... More

The view is great for people watching and looking out over the river. The food was just okay. The stuffed mushrooms were cold. No one came by to ask how they were. The food came out hot but nothing special. For the price there are lots of other choices around Portland.

Always good food here. The service is always good, great specials. This is a great "go to" spot for a business lunch. Never feel pressured, regardless of how busy it is.

By chance I stopped in for a late lunch over Happy Hour. Most of the riverside tables were taken so I had a limited view of the waterfront but it was a lovely day. They had a variety of options but I went with the coconut shrimp to avoid spicier alternatives and had a side of edamame dusted with sea... More

McCormick & Schmick's Restaurants have been part of the Portland scene for many years. They are now part of the larger Landry Restaurant group, but we are pleased that they have retained the local feel and high quality food and service they have long been known for. We recently visited the McCormick & Schmick's on the Waterfront in Portland for... More

Stopped in for a lunch at McCormicks and found the fresh affordable fare a reminder of great seafood! I forgot how much I love this place. Got crusted sole, potatoes, veggies, chowder and a drink for $11. Solid lunch.

I've been to many McCormicks around the nation but NEVER one with such an inflexible staff. Zero ability to substitute off the written menu. If the menu said green beans you could only get green beans even if 5 other veggies were on the menu. Others with me had the same problem so we ordered "as written" and swapped among... More
