We enjoyed sitting outside on the patio near the water to enjoy dinner. The Lobster Bites are delicious. Food is good. Just slightly pricey. They do have Happy Hour Drinks and Bites.

While at the National Harbor area for a conference, we are trying to out various seafood restaurants and there are plenty within walking distance of the Gaylord hotel. Tonight we decided on McCormick & Schmick's. It was crowded (around 7:30) but we quickly got a table for two. Our server (Dree) was outstanding and very helpful with our questions. We... More

Five of us, including a two year old had a great lunch. The service was first rate and the food even better. Despite a very busy afternoon we had a wonderful lunch. Best of all were the appetizers, share by all of us. The food was fresh, quite tasty and we will definitely return. Well enjoyed were the calamari and... More

We ate dinner and had happy hour which was fantastic by the way, at McCormick & Schmick. We visited this place twice in our 11 day trip. The service was outstanding, some of the best we ever had, anywhere! We had a comfy family dinner on the patio one night and had some of the best service from Quintan. He... More

I have had mixed experiences here. Sometimes the food is just okay; other times it's great. I love the crab tower just for its presentation. The service is usually good and the view can't be beat.

The appetizers are very good, and they have one of the best Happy Hours! The menu has a large variety of foods and drinks and I frequent the place quite often.

We usually do happy here at least every 5-6 weeks. Their HH is 2:30PM to 7PM which is great. If you get there before 5Pm there is usually a seat available in the bar area. HH prices and foods are only available in the bar area. The HH foods are still $3 up. The best buy is a 1/2lb cheeseburger... More

I ate at it before during my stay in national harbor. However, this time the service was not good. The waiter did not bring my required dish. When I asked him to change it, he stayed very long to get it and brought it cold. It would be the last time to eat there.
