“Great place to watch the game!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We visit Booth Bay Harbor every fall and visit McSeagull"s at least a couple time each vacation. The food is good, service is excellent, and there are enough TV's to satisfy everyone's preference for teams. If a screen is not set to your team's game, just ask! They are very accommodating.

“Good food, great views”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Good food and good service with a great view. How can you go wrong? We had dinner here with friends on our weekend getaway and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Everyone was satisfied with their meals, and the service was good. We would go back.

“Keeps us coming back”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

This was our third trip to BBH and we eat at McSeagull's every time. On this trip, we went first on a Friday night, early, before the crowd. I think we got there at 515 for a beer first. Since it was our first day back, we were excited for all types of local seafood. We had clam chowder and the lobster/crab stew for starters. My partner was not keen to share his chowder as he went on and on about how great it was. It was certainly loaded with clams (versus potatoes) and was very good. My stew was spectacular. It also has a cream base and was jam packed with veggies and seafood. Later we tried the bacon-wrapped scallops appetizer and that was also very good. The scallops were soft and easy to eat, but neither mushy nor rubbery. I even ate all of the little side salad on that plate, which was more than just garnish. After a little while we got dinner: one lobster cake and the haddock francaise McSeagull. The cake was pretty good and came with another salad garnish (hooray). The haddock was spectacular. Huge, delicately fried, and loaded with crabmeat and asparagus on top. The crab meat could have been a meal alone. The haddock was francaised just right and the fish was till flaky and not too soft or hard. And yes, a little while later, we gave into the homemade blueberry pie. It was just the right amount of sweetness and the crust was proof it was homemade--tasted great.
Now, the second time we went to McS on this trip, we experienced a slightly different meal. We went again on Sunday, later, and during a football game which everyone in the place including staff was watching. While our service didn't suffer terribly, the food was not of the same quality in some cases. Both the chowder and stew were still great (and why we had gone back), but my fish and chips had no spark to differentiate them from any other shop in the world, and our steak panini was equally non-thrilling. From this I can draw up to 2 conclusions--stick with fresh fish products, which they seem to know best, and two don't go during a football game. Several years ago we also went to McS during a game and the same thing happened, crowded, loud, and food not as great as the previous night. All that said, we will certainly be back next time we are in BBH, and we will remember to go early.
