I worked near McCormick's and had the opportunity to enjoy nice lunches with friends and co-workers. The fish dishes were always nicely prepared and the wait time for a seat or meal was never too long, even during the busy lunch rush. Cocktails are inventive and professionally blended. One day, while dining on my own and in desperate need of... More

Had lunch with a friend. No reservation. Went for the turkey sandwich and fries. Better than most. Service was great which is always appreciated. Just a block from county courthouse which makes it convenient.

How can you go wrong eating fish this close to the ocean! Having said that the meal was beautifully prepared and both my fish loving husband and my take it or leave it self were happy. Might want to book ahead because it is very popular. Would have given it 5 stars but I had fish in 5 star places... More

We walked here after the Sky View Observatory was a bust for wine & the sunset. Terrific Happy Hour pricing with $1 fresh, sweet oysters and delicious fish tacos. Many other items to choose from along with discounted alcoholic beverages. The service was excellent as well. When in that area, will make it a point to stop in again.

I first frequented this establishment in 1986. It was old time classic Northwest with a lot of class. I loved it then and have been loyal for so many years with at least one visit every year. But unfortunately it is continually sliding down to a chain restaurant mediocrity. What happened to the daily printed menu with fresh fish items?... More

Three of us ate here one meal was great and my colleague felt it was well cooked and tasty. I had the fish and chips and was hugely disappointed with how salty it was and the poor presentation. My last colleague also failed to finish his meal as it was so poor. You may get lucky but 2/3 of us... More

Had dinner with business colleagues, the food and wine list was outstanding. They had fresh Steelhead on the menu and it was excellent. Chocolate bag for dessert. Best meal I had in Seattle.

It has been a number of years since I have been to McCormick's. To be diplomatic, what use to be a funky place is now old and dreary. However, the food was great as well as the service. We went to lunch but I doubt - given the condition of the place - I would return for dinner.

The clam chowder was excellent. That was all we ordered, since we weren't real hungry, but it was worth the walk over. Delicious!
