I have on several occasions tried to obtain a reservation, seat at the bar and when I last visited got a table. Service was horrible today the least. We waited for a drink order for over 25 mins and had only fountain and tea. However,others who came after us were already served. We inquired with the manager who was very... More

Choose to dine here because of good past experiences with the chain. The place was not to busy and I easily found a place to sit. Arrived during happy hour and sat in the bar area. Ordered Black Mussels from the happy hour menu to start. They were very good. Then I waited and waited for the server to come... More

Service was painfully slow, but when the food finally arrived it was very good. The server came by periodically to apologize for the unusually long wait.

Some of my colleagues stayed in this area for business. We had a few free hours so went exploring around the harbour and discovered this gem! Just because beautiful and unexpected. Very unique, and glad I was able to capture it while I was there.

A friend drove down from PA to see us. Went to McCormick & Schmick because we had heard great things and we had a free appetizer coupon. We were so taken with the service, the quality of food (even well done steak), and the seating. They were somewhat crowded, we had a big table of approx 15 across from us,... More

I have never been to the National Harbor and was happy that a McCormick and Schmick was front and center with a fabulous view of the water. We sat inside but maybe next time will sit outside. Traveling on business, I was accompanied by three others. We were promptly seated and shown the drink and dinner specials. I like that... More

After being to Fogo the Chao, I was ready to explore some more. McCormick & Schimck serves very good food but the bread tastes dry and although fresh, was just okay. The food is SOO TINY, it is not worth the money, average cost per person is around $50 - $60 but I would not return!
