McGrath's Fish House serves excellent fish and seafood at a reasonable price. The seafood pastas were delicious, as were the pan-fried oysters and halibut. The house salads were a happy surprise - lots more going on than a simple lettuce-style salad. There was an assortment of fresh veggies layered over a mix of lettuces and the blue cheese dressing was... More

If you are looking for parking headache go here! It's in the mall parking lot which can be a total battle to find parking. We have been going here once in awhile when my husband is in the mood for halibut and chips. The staff is friendly and try to give you the best service but some how either they... More

Taken there as a guest. Two meals good, mine (Idaho trout) was a huge disappointment, no seasoning, a pale white fish with bones, soggy. Caesar salads were delicious! Manager did attempt to rectify situation with gift certificate for a future meal there, but I will not order the trout! The shrimp salad and chicken were good, not outstanding. No wait... More

We ordered dinner to go last evening for 7 people. The food was excellent and we had everything from halibut to shrimp to chicken and burgers. The portions were generous, and the price was very reasonable. Also the staff was very friendly and helpful. Totally recommend this place!! Definitely will go back again tonight!!!

I join someone for lunch this week, and so they had fried oysters on their lunch menu. I asked if it could be made into a "po-boy" which was a request that was quickly accommodated. The unfortunate thing is the the oysters were small and somewhat flavorless. The entree was served with fries which were excellent, as was the side... More

I love seafood - McGrath's is good, not great, but good. There are many tasty options on the menu and you don't need to drop a massive amount of money to have a decent meal. Service is good - we were seated promptly and had a very attentive waitress. The seared Ahi Tuna was a great starter to share, and... More

I went to McGrath's with a party of 7 and we had a great time. The menu is HUGE; not just fish but several other dishes as well such as pasta, steaks, burgers, etc. I had the ribs and they were good. The prices are also reasonable considering a meal comes with bread, salad, vegetable and choice of various kinds... More
