Diner Reviews
  • "Went 2x over the 4th & won't go back. From check-in to check-out went from bad to worse! Food has gone down hill, the crab cake was mostly filing couldn't find crab meat, the filet was well done instead of medium well, vegetables left to be desired, wait staff we had except for 1 was not friendly. how sad, was a good place in the past."

  • "Everything about our experience was perfect! From the service (Jeff was the best!), to the food, to the drinks, I could not have asked for anything more!"

  • "Sat outside on the patio to enjoy dinner on the harbor. Absolutely beautiful setting and well kept. Our server worked her butt off keeping up. It was 4th of July and the place was jumpin! Food and service were excellent- we had a great experience. We will certainly visit again when we are in Baltimore."

  • "A bit overpriced for food quality, setting is beautiful. Service is slow and disjointed. Had to ask several times for a drink for our toddler, had to request bread. App came out in 1 minute but meals took a long time."

  • "HIGH: Excellent shrimp cocktail, bar drink (M&S Iced Tea) & sourdough bread (as good as what you get in San Francisco) LOW: Went to the rest room...came back to find my table cleared and reset for the next guests HIGH: Waiter immediately replaced my drink (better than my first one) and sourdough LOW: Kitchen backed up (July 4th crowd)...dinner would be delayed HIGH: Ordered pan-seared Rainbow Trout, Oscar-style (crab lumps, asparagus & Hollandaise)...the fish was perfectly prepared & delicious LOW: The fish was layered over mashed potatoes, green beans & carrots (Oscar style?) HIGH: The "Oscar" was still quite tasty LOW: Had roasted potatoes for a side...two potatoes in one dinner? LOWEST: I identified one crab lump in the Hollandaise!"

  • "Wonderful outdoor deck. Hidden gem in Baltimore. Great waiters/waitresses. Very knowledgeable about fish and cooking methods. On sunny nights unbelievable."

  • "Everything was very nice. We were greated and seated right away. Our server was nice but not to friendly which I am sure some people prefer but not us. The food was great except we would have liked a salad as part of our meal without having to pay extra. Overall, I would recommend it to a friend."

  • "went for a date night and found the food and location very nice. the staff was friendly and the food was pretty good too. the only downside other than a pricey meal, was that the portion sizes for the fish was very small - especially, when paired with the price."

  • "Took my wife to dinner for her birthday - this M&S is one of her favorite restaurants. My halibut was overcooked, and she said she liked her shrimp scampi, but commented that Cheesecake Factory's tasted better. Salads, wine, desserts and specialty coffees were all above average. We'll be back, but the fact that a seafood restaurant overcooked a featured fish was disappointing."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Service was very slow. Possibly due to too many tables crammed into the place. The waiters had trouble serving as you couldn't walk around a table to serve. Waited over an hour for the halibut that was recommended by our waiter. It was lukewarm and tasteless. Steak was tough. Ordered tea and was served 1/2 cup of a small cup of hot water. Just getting the tea took 15 minutes. Even the bread is cold and tasteless. Had high hopes for this restaurant. I've gone to others in other cities and the food was very good. Food is pricey, but nothing was special about it in Baltimore."

  • "Lacking in service and food quality. This restaurant has changed the past years. Once one of the better harbor front restaurants. Now just mediocracy at harbor prices."

  • "We arrived for our 7:15 reservation for 2 and were barely acknowledged by the hostess. She told the second hostess where to seat us, no communication with us. We were given a table for 8 inside. We said we did not need a table that large. It was not that busy inside, but they said that was all they could give us because of server sections, etc. We asked about outside and were told it would be a 15 minute wait. So we got a glass of wine and waited, and waited, and waited. Finally over an hour later were seated. We chose McCormick and Schmick's because we were going to a cocktail party there at 8:30, so the timing was now way off. Servers seemed confused, orders came out wrong. Food was blah. Just an overall bad experience."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary this year by dining at McCormick & Schmicks in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. The food was outstanding! One of the best meals I have had in a while. I had Mahi Mahi (Blackened) and it was perfectly cooked. I also had green beans and mashed potatoes for sides and they too were perfect with this dish. Also had a cup of Maryland Crab soup and it was flavorful and a great appetizer. My wife had the stuffed shrimp which she too enjoyed. I would highly recommend this place for dinner. We enjoyed sitting outside. Dress is very casual and shorts are perfectly fine, at least for the outside dinning. We enjoyed the three berry cobbler for desert and like the meal, it too was very good."

  • "When I first walked in the host greeted my guest and I pleasantly. However, I was not happy with the attention my server displayed. I noticed that he very rarely came to my table but visited other tables often. Not very happy with the table service at all."

  • "Have eaten at M&S in five or six cities. All have been exemplary prior to this. This was a horrible experience and I would recommend NO ONE go to this restaurant. We stood over 20 minutes waiting on a table but were never told we would be more than "a minute" so instead of being in the bar, we stood in the entry way. Our waiter was horrible...screwed up drinks, appetizers, didn't know how to open/pour wine, brought wrong food for one party, and generally was clueless. Food is acceptable but there's way better in Baltimore. Save your time and money for elsewhere."

  • "It was a very busy Saturday night. We were slightly confused and bemused by the fact that our reservation did not allow us access to an outside table (first come first served? then why should we make a reservation?). However, our waiter, Chad did everything in his power to make our dining experience enjoyable. He kept us apprised of the delays at the bar, gave us good advice in regard to dinner choices (we each had salads, I had 4 different oysters and we split the main course). We werer very impressed with the "hustle" demonstrated by the entire wait staff all whom appeared to be very attentive to their tables' needs."

  • "It has gone quite downhill in past years. Used to be one of my favourite places. Such a shame. The food used to be terrific. It is now sub-par, overcooked, and poorly seasoned. That was the case with all four of us. (FYI.....The 4 star I gave for ambiance is if you are sitting outside!)"

  • "For us out-of -town, first time guests, your verbal directions by phone were less than helpfull! In fact they were misleading, causing us to be half-hour late -then had to walk way too far (difficult for an 80 yr old). A common sense direction like 'east of the Nat Aqarium' would have eliminated the confusion between your resturant and the one called M & S located in a pavilin at the harbor. NOTE - both places have Valet Parking and the one I chose did NOT tell that I was in the wrong place, causing anothder long walk to find my vehicle after diner. "

  • "I went with two other female friends for a quiet dinner. McCormick & Schmick provided such an environment. Our appetizers were tasty - crab dip, coconut shrimp & wedge salad. For the entree, we selected two fish dishes & one shrimp scampi. Again, they were well prepared. John the waiter was mentoring a new server and showed him how to make our dinner a delightful experience. "

  • "Dined here many times in the past, for special occasions and when traveling to Baltimore. Having not been here for a couple of years apparently, we were very disappointed in the change. Service was excellent, but that was it. The food was, well, my wife said it best, "We could have eaten at Red Lobster for less and gotten a better meal." Grilled seafood platter, overcooked and dry, not helped by the buttery sauce it was slathered with. Shrimp cocktail: small shrimp for the price and overcooked at that. Crab tower appetizer: Mango and Avocado just did not work for us. Ate it by taking the components apart and eating them separately. My wife's soft shell crab was mostly breading, and edible only when she peeled that off."

  • "I have been to this restaurant several times but when I took my mom and my family for a mothers day dinner, our reservation time was pushed back 20 minutes from 5 to 5:20 PM which was not too bad considering how crowded it was. The problem was our waiter did not try to see to our needs nor it seemed that he cared. I watched the other waitress take care of her customers but ours seemed to be slow nor did he care to follow up to see if we needed anything. I informed the other waitress of how well of a job she was doing and I informed her manager. One of her tables who was seated almost 10 min after we were seated got their food first and after waiting over an hour, I informed the manager to cancel our food order and we left. "
