A delicious place to spend your dining time. We went on Veterans day and were able to purchase some past vets a wonderful desert. Wait staff were very helpful!

I had 3 plates and I paid for $22.00 not bad for a sea food dish.. The place is also pretty during the night.. My battery phone died that's why I wasn't able to take pictures.. I'm not a fan of alcoholic beverages but if I am, I imagine their drinks would be so good... Lol

We had a large party there on Christmas Eve and had a wonderful night. The seafood is consistent and delicious. Clam chowder is thick with an abundance of clams. Together I think we tried just about everything on the menu. Some had steaks which were of a high quality and tender. Most of us had seafood of every variety. Well... More

This establishment definitely does not have the typical "Chain" feel to it. They have probably the BEST Halibut Fish and Chip I have ever eaten......the batter is light and crispy and does not overpower the fish. We have tried their grilled fish a couple times and were not happy with it........not sure what they do to it, but you should... More

Nice selection of seafood. I ordered the steak and lobster. Lobbie was on the small side. They don't seem to offer anything larger than small! Shrimp cocktail was delish. Salad plentiful. Sirloin steak tasty. It's a family owned chain. I'd recommend and come back.

We've eaten here with another couple and once on our own. While the fish is good, the menu tends to be on the heavier side with lots of 'breading' going on. There are grilled options which are good, but when we've ordered w/out breading, the entree is bland. The service is attentive but it's also quite loud inside. Booths help... More

McGrath's has excellent service and very very good fish! Although it's a chain, it hasn't the "chain feel". All the meals I've had there have been quite good. Most come with salad and warm bread, and are very satisfying.

When we drove past here on our way to another area of Vancouver going to the supermarket I knew we had to come back for lunch to give it a try. I've gone to one in Beaverton Oregon before so figured it would also be good and wasn't disappointed. We both had the Grilled Parmesan Crusted Cod with salad instead... More

First time experience at this chain. Cute, yet kitzy design. Liked the privacy granted despite the size. The waitress was very attentive and did a nice job. I got a wood grilled skewered scallops and shrimp. They were fine maybe a bit overcooked. What was most disappointING was the accompanying potato. It was way over cooked and seemed to have... More
