“Great food, but overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2011

McCormick's Fish House & Bar has excellent service, a pleasant ambience and really good fish. But it is way overpriced. There is just as good fare to be had at the several eating places at the Pikes Place Market, at real value prices.

“Was not the place I thought it would be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

Food portions are small, place seemed to smell like fish, the server had very long nails that made me disgusted and have no trust that the cook is also like that too. Do not recommend it to anyone.

“Wonderful mussels and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2011

The mussels, which come from Penn Cove, just up the road, are among the best we've ever had. Other seafood dishes are also fine. Service is expert and seasoned. Make sure to tell them if you have to leave by a specific time so they can tailor the servings. Otherwise, you might now want to leave. One quibble: The wine list could have more Northwest labels.

“Worst Fish Ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2011

The service was good, the wine was good but the food was truly awful. I had some sort of fish which was tasteless with accompaniments which were equally bad. Don't go there.
