So the menu options looked great. It went downhill from there. I ordered the Parmesan Crusted Cod pieces with a side mini Shrimp Louis salad. OK, I'll give the salad a pass. It was fresh, larger than expected, teeny shrimp I'd guess from a can. The cod was like a hockey puck. Looked half-way decent on the outside, but rubbery... More

Waited at the front counter awhile to be seated when only one family was ahead of us. After being seated and drinks ordered we waited 15 minutes for two glasses of wine and two cocktails and 2 glasses of water. They did not seem that busy on a Sunday evening. One solid ground in balsamic dressing and two other salads... More

We love fish so were delighted to find McGrath's fish house. I had the Coho Salmon and it was dry too dry crusty and way too salty. The Clam chowder was tasty but clams practically none existent. We will not return to this place for sure

Never have we had four out of four terrible meal anywhere. Though I loved, loved, loved my pear, walnut, cheese salad, I can't believe the rest of it was approved to leave the kitchen. My husband couldn't cut his two lonely razorback clams with his knife, my fresh wild caught salmon was so dry that it was tasteless, my daughter... More

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
