“Good, but nothing spectacular”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

This was my first visit to a McCormick & Schmick's, so I can't say how it stacks up to other franchises. We visited during Food Week, so we all got the special four-course meal. It was good! Nothing to write home about, but it was a nice place to have dinner.

“Good service and food in Downtown!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

If you want fresh, high-end seafood in Downtown Charlotte this is the only place to go. The menu also includes some nice filets. You pay a premium for the quality and the location but it is worth it for a nice night out. Try the garlic mashed potatoes.

“Good Quality Food & Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

My friends and I ate at McCormick & Schmick's downtown Charlotte. We were seated immediately. Our server Ryan was was attentive and the food was good. The three of us enjoyed our various dishes. I had crusted talipia with mixed veggies and mashed potatoes. The fish was well seasoned.
I appreciated how attentive our server Ryan was. Thumbs up to the downtown locaton.

“Had a lovely lunch here.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Nice lunch watching the business people of Charlotte with their packed lunches hurrying by. Good service and nice food but nothing really special for the money.

“Excellent Food and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Have visited this restaurant several times in Uptown Charlotte, NC and have always found the service and food to be over the top. Lots of selections and staff always knowledgeable about the dishes offered. I have also visited the one in Baltimore, MD at the Inner Harbor and was equally pleased.

I will be going back to Charlotte in September and will certainly be going here.
