    McCormick & Schmick's at Harrah's is one of the best spots for seafood in Atlantic City. I had the chef's choice of the day - grilled red snapper, and it was delicious. It's a cut above other "chain" restaurants, and reasonably priced, with a good seasonal menu.

    Dined on 8/17/2014
    Ate here once before and the food was ok and the service was borderline horrible, but unable to get into the Olde Homestead in the Borgata figured we would five this another try..Anyway it was the worst experience ever in a restaurant...First the appetizers came out within 5 minutes of ordering, then 5 minutes after that to our surprise our meals were on the table...they did forget to bring our salads but after bringing that to the waitresses attention she offered to bring our meals back to the kitchen and bring out our salads...Who does that? Then the manager came over and said they will keep the meals warm while we eat the salad course...now we ordered steaks if they would have sat in the kitchen they would have been like shoe leather!

    I always enjoyed eating at McCormick & Schmick's on special occasions since it is pricey. I thought I would make my vacation special by going to M&S for scallops and nice dinner with my daughter. I was very disappointed this time. While the scallops were okay, the crab has were greasy and not very tasty. This is usually one of my favorite dishes, but I was very disappointed (Saturday, August 16, 2014). My daughter's filet mignon was very tiny as was the wedge salad, although the salad was tasty. The service was also very slow. I will not eat at this particular M&S. For all of the money I spent, I did not leave satsified. The server did not seem familiar with the drink list.

    If this had been my first experience at M&S, I'd never go back. To my surprise, I should have walked out before being seated! The hostess desk sent us to our first table which was still occupied. Then we were seated at a table that should have been cut in half for the waitstaff to walk through. Every time the staff or other diners passed my husband, they either bumped into his shoulder or had to say "excuse me." I ordered clam chowder which contained not one clam & the surf & turf of filet with shrimp. While not seeing one clam, the soup was delicious. The filet was not cooked as I ordered & was tasteless. My family & friends all ordered the Mahi & loved it. Portions great. Needs another chance.

    One thing I can say about M&S is the food and service are consistent. Although a little higher in price (after all it is a chain) the experience will be worth it

    We arrived promptly for our reservation and were seated immediately. We probably didn't need a reservation because the restaurant had plenty of empty tables for an early August prime-time vacation hotel/casino. The waitress was very friendly and accommodating, however it took her a while to refresh our beverages. I wasn't asked if I would like a refill on my iced tea until I was done with my meal. The food was very good but the portions were very small especially for an adult male's appetite. We ordered a crab-type appetizer which we were told was large enough for two people to share and was supposedly filled with large crab chunks. However, the item was very small and ithere may have been two chucks of crab meat in there

    We arrived early and they and we were seated immediately. The staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. It was a comfortable atmosphere. Our server Jenifer was outstanding. The food was absolutely wonderful. The crab cakes were the best we have ever had! We would most certainly recommend to anyone going to AC! The prices were worth the amount of food, and quality of the meal. We will deffinatly be back!

    Easy to get a reservation--because the food is very average. (Think Ruby Tuesdays). Need to step it up to be equivalent to other McCormick &Schmicks I have eaten at. Even the Cosmo was below average.

    I went with a group of four. We were very impressed with the way the restaurant looked and the seats we were given. The food was fantastic, we all loved our food; however, it took forever to get our drink orders in and then even longer to get our drinks. Our food took even longer to get, we asked for boxes and the check when the waiter came to the table for the second time to ask if we needed more drinks. Very unimpressed with the service. LOVED THE FOOD!

    The food was pretty good, the service was uneven, and the prices were a bit high (especially the drinks)... but then again, you pay the price if you choose to stay in the resort for your dinner. Also we found it quite loud and difficult to hear across the table. On the plus side, it was convenient because we had just watched a show in Harrah's concert venue. Would recommend again, but would advise those going of the pros & cons...

    Such a positive experience, especially after a very disappointing experience at Martorano's the night before. All our entrees (6) were very delicious! Ambience was great, was quiet enough to talk and prices even for AC were moderate. We were all very happy here. Shrimp Angels were awesome as was the Parmesan crusted Flounder and Mahi.

    My wife and I go to McCormick & Schmick's everytime we are in Atlantic City and have had great experiences, but this visit was disappointing in the least. It took over 25 minutes to get water and didn't get bread until appetizers were served. The bus boys didn't help the servers out in any way with water or bread. I don't blame the problem on the waitress since she was also helping out in the bar with happy hour, I feel the managers should of saw the situation and helped out. very dissatisfied

    This was our second time to this restaurant. We enjoyed our first visit, the only complaint then was the temperature in the restaurant was extremely cold, so we made a return visit on our next visit to AC. The staff/service were very good but the food was only mediocre. Portions were small and the menu prices were very high. Three out of the four of us were disappointed in our meals. My sister, who ordered the lobster macaroni and cheese was very happy with her meal. We probably won't return as there are too many other restaurants in this market to settle for one that is only OK.

    Celebrating our 10 anniversary, We requested a nice quiet table with out CRYING, SCREAMING, children next to us. At 8:30 Who would think there would be children out at that time especially having dinner no less. Completing our first course, a table for 10 was place right next to our table. McCormick & Schmick'.s restaurant was not sold out by any means. We waited several minutes to request a table change from our waitress she was no where to be found, claims, was attending to that table. We finally did move our table and even then we could still hear the children, after we left, they screamed even louder. Nothing was offered to us for the the inconvience. I had to ask for something. Our food was cold.

    My husband and I went here for the first time for our anniversary. Neither one of us like seafood, but we knew they had chicken & steak options. We started with the margarita flatbread, which might have been the best one Ive ever tasted. My husband got the filet mignon, and I got the Parmesan Crusted Chicken which came with pasta. Both were delicious! The portion size looked small at first, but ended up being the perfect amount. We also got the red pepper mash and creamed spinach as sides, which are a good portion and large enough to share. We sat in a nice spacious booth, and the restaurant was pretty quiet. I love this place, can't wait to go back!
