    We were celebrating my 75th B/day. When the waiter handed us the menu at the top it read Happy 75th B/day? Cool! The food was superb! Jack, our waiter helped with good choices and his service was excellent. Even got free dessert for my B/day.

    Had a delicious dinner at one of our favorite restaurants in Harrah's, Atlantic City. Enjoyed a glass of wine at the bar before dinner, with a small snack, hot pretzels with a cheese dip. Our table provided all the comfort, and ambience, for a quiet romantic dinner. Our waiter was excellent (Nick) and then some. From food suggestions, to overall pleasantries exchanged, he made our night even better! Enjoyed our appetizers immensely, calamari, and fried oysters, very yummy. Followed by two very good entrees, a terrific yet inexpensive bottle of wine, and shared a great dessert! Perfect evening!

    McCormisck & Schmick's is known for the calamari appetizer....but they were out at 6:30 on a Monday. They were out of Steak and Lobster. My wife had Cod...which was good but the green beans tasted weird like the oil they were cooked in was old. One of the 2 pieces of my sea bass was undercooked. The bread served was a sour dough...not the best choice of breads to serve. We didn't complain, however we won't be going back.

    Great job! Thank you McCormick & Schnitck for being so generous to Vets. Free meals for all the Sunday before. Food was great but the attitude of management and staff was even better. All said "Thanks for serving" and the manager handled a problem with the wine order like we where special customers. Well done. We will be back

    Great AC date night. I took my boyfriend for his birthday and we had a wonderful experience. I wish I remembered our waiter's name because he really made our night. The appetizers were different and tasty, and we had delicious entrees. The birthday brownie and ice-cream that our server gave us was delicious as well. Nice, romantic atmosphere. I have been a server in the food industry for years and I can't say it enough - our waiter was outstanding.

    Food was great. Service beyond terrible. Seated at 724p, left after 10p on a Thursday nite. 2 in our party. Shared free app offered, 2 entree salads, dessert. Simple right? Tag team servers, both thought the other had taken order, were bringing out food, etc. no commun between them at all. Was not busy tho 2 banquet tables were seated during our meal. We should have been seated in the regular dining room. They arrived at 8. They did not get served until after 945. We waited 15 min for drinks after ordering. Waited 20 min for salt/pepper after asking for it. Salad was wrong. No refill on coffee after I asked for it. Bill was wrong. That took over 1/2 hour to correct. Miss M&S in cherry hill. Not going back ever.

    We have been eating here every time we go to Harrah's, and the past few trips there have made me change my mind about eating here. The food has never been an issue, it is always delicious, as it should be for the price you pay. But for the price you pay you should also get exceptional service, and that has not been the case for us. My wife waited 15 minutes to get her water glass refilled, we never got checked on after our entrees came to the table, and after we asked to have our leftovers wrapped up, apparently our awful waitress spilled them. The restaurant did right by us by remaking a meal for us to take home, however, didn't tell us about it until after we had sat there for another 10 minutes. We are not sure if we will be going back.

    Harrah's is not a high end spot, so you take what you can get in terms of dining. That said, I have been to McCormick and Schmicks in other locations and always been happy with the food and service. Our waitress was very helpful, but as is typical, when we wanted to pay, she was no where to be found. The food itself was OK, but the preparation was not finessed. My companion had bronzino and I had salmon. Both tasted fine but were overly dripping in oils. I got the brussel sprouts as an accompaniment, and they were mushy but still had the tough stems on, which made them impossible to cut. Dessert (apple pie with cinnamon ice cream) was a real disappointment. Flavorless ice cream had melted by the time the dessert was delivered.

    This weekend I visited Mccormick& Schmick's. AC for the third time and I was a little bit disappointed. The ambiance and food was great as always but the service was lackluster. M&S has some awesome private booths, I requested one and got it. The waitress however did not even ask if we wanted the privacy drapes closed. She was very low energy and seemed overworked. I'm sure she tried her best but I'm used to more from this establishment. I looked around and saw the waitstaff looked young and inexperienced, not sure I will go there again for my birthday dinner.

    Took my mom to Atlantic City for an overnight stay at Harrah's for her 85th birthday and made dinner reservations at McCormick & Schmick's. Service from the beginning to end was fantastic. Our menu's had Happy Birthday mom printed on the top and were rolled up and ribboned for us to take home....lovely touch!We had the lump crab meat tower which was outstanding and presented beautifully. Mom had a pasta dish of shrimp scampi and linguini and I had the mixed grill- both terrific. We ended with the vanilla/choc mousse cake which was outstanding!! Very good quality for a chain restaurant and reasonably priced- especially for AC! Already booked to eat there again during an upcoming conference I am attending in AC

    It was my husband's 65th birthday celebration with 9 other people. My husband ordered the lobster tails and and after a few minutes, the waiter came back to our table and informed us that they were out of lobster tails. Very disappointing -- how can a seafood restaurant be out of lobster tails? The waiter did his best to make up for it by bring out a lobster appetizer, but it just didn't take the place of a nice lobster tail dinner. We specifically picked this restaurant for his birthday because of the lobster.

    Our waiter was very attentive and efficient. The food was delicious. The semi-private table and lighting set-up was romantic. But the bar area set-up was disappointing and not big enough for the restaurant; the service and TV reception there horrible... and the idea there was no tap beer service the night we dined was surprising and annoying. Needs work for the price and competition in the area.
