Description: Unique to Minneapolis, the restaurant has several "snugs" (private booths for six with draperies) in the formal dining room. The handsome interior features handcrafted mahogany, stained glass (depicting Minnesota heritage), brass accents, and Tiffany-style lamps lending a traditional note to the interior. McCormick & Schmick's also features a lively bar experience, with a bar staff that practices traditional mixology -- hand-shaken cocktails using only bottled sodas, freshly squeezed juices and premium liquors.

“So disappointed!”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

We went there for Christmas dinner because I wanted crab legs. Unfortunately for me they were rubbery, luke warm, skimpy and the presentation: thrown together. For the price they charge I was shocked!

“Designated date spot”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

This and Oceanaire are our first choices for downtown Minneapolis dining. It was not that long ago when good seafood only was found at the coasts. We very much enjoy the atmosphere.

“Nice place for tasty greasy diner food.”
Reviewed December 17, 2012 via mobile

Sent back the first dish because of the grease. I laid a paper napkin on it and it was soaked in seconds. That second dish was little better but still nothing better than a greasy grill joint. The waitress was crabby and seemed bothered by having to be there. Any other reasonable place would have offered something. I talked to the manager and he said everybody has a bad day in response to me stating that I wouldn't be back. The problem is that I paid for their bad day. I will never go back, but the salad was good.

“A great lunch spot”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

My wife and I had lunch and had great food, Our waiter suggested the bacon wrapped shrimp, that was owesome. Great presentation. My wife had the shrimp linguine which was very good, I had the kobe burger - cooked to perfection. I would recommend this place - our waiter did a great job and kept the refills coming.

“Fancy but casual”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

Had dinner at M&S. Wife had some kind of Wahoo fish with a pretzel crust and she loved it. I had the steak and lobster special (25.00). Steak was a little tough but still good. Our hotel concierge made our reservation and they treated us special. Even put a "VIP" sign on the table.
Highly recommend M&S and have your hotel call in the reservation.
