    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.

    My wife and I have been going to McCormicks for a few years now. We usually choose there to eat every time we go to AC, which is atleast 2-3 times a year. The food is always fresh, server is always pleasant and courteous, and the prices are reasonable. Would recommend to anyone.

    while the food was decent, and the ambiance, nice, the portions were miniscule for the price. Our tab was fine at $106, but we left joking about wanting to go to a second restaurant for another course. We are not exceptionally big eaters either!

    The atmosphere was perfect for the type of evening I had anticipated. Quiet and relaxing. Our waiter Mike, was very nice, attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Food was great - not quite exceptional like I have had there in the past, but definitely above average. Cocktails were nice and refreshing. I highly recommend this place for dinner and drinks.

    We have always loved coming here on our visits to Atlantic City and ate twice on our visit last week. Unfortunately, the food is not as good as it use to be. The selection is not as great and the fish didn't seem as fresh. Service was wonderful. Once upon a time I use to look forward to coming to M&S, but maybe now that won't be the case anymore.

    WHEN WE WERE SEATED HAD TO WAIT FOR OUR SERVER "MIKE". HE TOOK "LONG" PERIODS" OF TIME BETWEEN OUR WINE, APPS, MAIN COURSE AND DESSERT. HE KEPT MAKING EXCUSES. SORRY ABOUT DELAY. THE RESTAURANT WAS NOT BUSY SO NO EXCUSES. STUFF SHIRIMP WITH CRAB WERE "OK". THE MASHED "CHEDDAR" POTATOES TASTED WATERED DOWN OR MIXED WITH CAULIFLOWER. DID NOT TASTE CHEESY. MY GIRLFIREND ORDER A SALAD THAT WAS NOT TASTY AT ALL. I HAD RAW OYSTERS AS APP AND THEY WERE GOOD. OVERALL I GIVE IT 2 STARS. NOT WORTH WHAT THE COST FOR DINNER WAS. MIKE IS LUCKY HE RECEIVED A 15% TIP.

    The server was a sweet girl but not very knowledgeable about the menu. When we ordered our food we had to wait a long time for it to arrive at the table. My fiance ordered clam chowder and we ordered a calamari to share. Both items came out together instead of being staggered. When our main dishes arrived they were luke warm at best. The surf and turf I had was tasty, but I would have prefered it to be hot. We then ordered coffee which again was warm not hot. The bread that was put on the table was tasteless and wasn't warm. Overall I would not recommend nor go back to this restaurant.

    Me and my boyfriend never ate at McCormick & Schmick's Seafood and we wanted to try a new place. It was a slow Friday evening so we were seated pretty quickly. Our waitress was kind and said she'll try and have our food done as soon as possible because I informed her that I haven't ate for a while and wasn't feeling to great. Roughly 20 minutes later our food arrived - we both were shocked to see that my boyfriends Buttermilk Fried Shrimp meal had only 7 shrimp, fries, and cole slaw which cost $21.99. Maybe for some people that's reasonable or expected, but not to us at all. I'm very very big on not complaining to the waitress or a manager. We simply will never ever come to any McCormick & Schmick's Seafood restaurant again.

    The portion of my entree was much too small and unsatisfying. I found myself filling up on bread to compensate. Then the waitress made 2 errors on our bills. First she charged $6 more for each entree than the price on the menu and then made another $3 error. I'm glad my friend caught the errors which seemed to be directly attributable to the waitress.

    We have always enjoyed ourselves at your restaurant; however there was one thing on my mind when we were departing. As we got into the elevator I heard and agreed with what an other patron had expressed to their partner and I agree! "Last time I am paying $20 bucks to park for a two hour meal" Very disappointed!

    We were looking forward to the filet & lobster tail special. We always use valet parking but to our surprise the fee was $ 25.00. We decided not to park at Harrah's and drove across the street to the Borgata, paid $ 5.00 for valet parking and had a great buffet dinner. I'm sure M&S is a very good Restuarant and they could thank Harrah's for loosing some business with their ridiculous parking fees. Maybe this type of business is part of what is chasing people away from AC casinos and eventually will close more of them. I hope not.
