Diner Reviews
  • "We all love everything about McCormick & Schmick's. The location in VA Beach is wonderful. Right in the middle of VB Town Center with very nice Hotels all around. The food is absolutely delicious. Have never gotten a meal that wasn't fabulous. Their wedge salad is the very best. Love their fried shrimp and their fish specials. The service is great also. Very knowledgable, courteous and helpful. I highly reccommend this Resturant to locals as well as tourists. http://trksmail4.zulily.com:80/track?t=c&eas=4&mid=1099907&msgid=70532&did=109932&sn=67116427&eid=rayblackman@cox.net&uid=2088130255&tgid=&fl=&extra=MultivariateId=&&&208000071915&&&http://www.zulily.com/e/monochrome-mode-black-and-white-plus-71915.html?email=rayblackman@cox.net"

  • "This is a great spot for a business lunch or classy dinner date. Ambience is turn of the (last) century, with glossy wood paneling, curtained booths, and Prairie-style light fixtures shedding a warm glow (the lighting, by the way, is perfect, subdued without being dim). A lack of noisy background music means you can have a quiet conversation, and the curtained booths are perfect for those wishing privacy. Service is professional and attentive, and the food is very good. Not 5-star good (my sauteed mushrooms and spinach would have been just bland if they hadn't been almost too salty), but steaks oscar and bordelaise were both tender and tasty. Seafood was also primo: lobster mashed potatoes are a win! Portions are a bit small for the price."

  • "Very limited side selection but willing to work with you. Not a great clam chowder but Maryland crab soup was exceptional. Portions small for price, salmon slightly overcooked and dry. Lobster and steak cooked perfectly."

  • "We love this restaurant for great food, great decor, great athmosphere, great staff. It is our favorite spot in Town Center among all the good restaurants in this area. It has a mainly seafood menu, but the steaks are good here too. The crabcakes are the best you can find between here and Baltimore. There are great seating options too...bar area has that sports bar feel but with class. Open area is great for groups. Booths are great for romantic ambience, especally with curtains drawn. Seating by the window gives a great view outdoors. Outside dining is pleasant for enjoying fresg air."

  • "I had the almond encrusted trout. My colleague really liked it but to me it was a little lacking. Still good. Freindly waitress atmosphere good. Would definitely go back."

  • "Without a doubt the most inattentive hostess that I have ever had. She suggested that we go to the bar while our table was made ready. She had perfected avoiding eye contact while we waited at the bar while she was sipping on a slurpy. When we walked out she was outside flirting with the valet parking attendants. We had a nice dinner at Ruth Chris across the street."

  • "We chose to dine here because of the 1000-point option. We arrived and were seated right away, our server was very personable and efficient, and we were very pleased will all of our food selections. Based on our overall experience, we plan to return!"

  • "I love this restaurant. The food is always great. My waitress was very prompt and great as well. The only reason I rated the service under a 5 is because of the hostess at your front door. She was very unfriendly and unwelcoming. When asking her questions she was very short with my us and borderline rude. I was celebrating my birthday on this day at your as I've done the last 2 years. I've also celebrated my last 3 anniversary with you guys. I've never experienced anything less than excellent service from your restaurant until now. I must say this was disappointing. "

  • "The food here was wonderful - fresh seafood and delicious flavor profiles. We also had one member of our party who does note eat seafood, and he was equally pleased with his chicken dish. The server was so pleasant and helpful, and created a wonderful dining experience. We had a birthday in our party, and they even personalized our menus with a birthday message! I would definitely recommend this restaurant, and we will be going back again soon!"

  • "We have been patrons of McCormick for years but recently it seems that the quality of the food has suffered. I am not sure if there has been change in management or cook staff but something has changed. They definitely have fallen further down the list of places we like to go."

  • "Seated at outdoor table, no server for 20 minutes. Ordered drinks. Served 15 minutes later. Things got better. Mains came. Then waiter recommended strawberry cheese cake for dessert. Cake came without strawberries. Where are strawberries? They are in the flavor, he said with a shrug. As we finished the cake, he delivered a small bowl of strawberries. Better late than never, he proclaimed. "

  • "Sandler Center and McCormick and Schmick...what a delightful combination! This is the best restaurant in Towne Center. The seafood is always fresh and creatively cooked to perfection. It is always a special treat to dine here!"

  • "This is the third of the M&S's my wife and I have dined in throughout the country. Every time the experience has been most enjoyable. The VB location was the best, due to our waitress--Kathy. Not only was she knowledgeable, but she was a Johnny on the spot, we never had to ask for anything. His gregarious nature made her a pleasure and added quality to our dinner party of five celebrating my wife's birthday. If every restaurant had a Kathy, M&S would be in deep trouble---but they don't. I would definitely consider her for a management position."

  • "For a mid-week evening, the service was rather slow. The house was not anywhere near full. That said, everything was good. Wife had her usual medium rare filet (done perfectly) and I tried the monchong, a fish that I had never heard of. Looking on Wikipedia, I still don't think I know much about it. Anyway, it was tasty, although a bit dry. Served on a potato-crab hash cake that was really good."

  • "We were a group of 7 and each had a tasty meal. My salmon was glazed and perfectly prepared. They kindly changed my field green salad to romaine, much more to my liking. We ended with a chocolate dessert, warm and delicious!"

  • "I have been to McCormick & Schmick's numerous times and thoroughly enjoyed food and service. This time I went on Mother's Day and the food was not up to par nor was the service. Steaks were ordered medium and came out well done and the Salmon which I always get was burnt and ruined the taste. Will I go back, yes but not on a holiday."

  • "We had the almond crusted trout and the the blackened swordfish and both were excellent. Our server was very attentive and we look forrward to our next visit."

  • "I made a Mothers Day Brunch reservation on lin After arriving on time on Sunday we were waiting to be seated although we had a reservation for 15 minutes. After being seated the service was very relaxed, (slow and unattentive). I was especially let down with the Crab cakes benedict. Both my wife, the mother, had eggs that were lukewarm at best and not runny as is expected with eggs benedict. My daughters both ordered the BBQ bacon shrimp & grits, they were very saucy and as well lukewarm, I ate one. The Maryland crab soup was delicious, the highlight of my meal. I have been to this restaurant twice before and enjoyed the experience, Also the Minneapolis location several times. I was very let down."

  • "As always excellent service every time. From the moment I walk through the door to when I walk out - the staff aims to please and always accommodating - over the top!! Food is excellent, always cooked to perfection & served timely so not feeling rushed between each course. The best steak & seafood at Towncenter "

  • "We take my 90 year old mother here every time we take her out. It is easy to get in and out of for someone not as agile as they once were. The food is fabulous and always excellent . Better still is the high level of service and respect given to every customer . We return here often."

  • "We had heard such nice things about your restaurant and determined that the next time we were in the Virginia Beach area, we would come or a romantic seafood dinner. It more than met our expectations! The food was delicious and prepared beautifully, the service was great and the overall experience was wonderful! You can be sure that we will be back the next time we are in town. Thanks for a perfect evening!"

  • "Food was too expensive and was about the same quality you would get at a fast food. I actually think i would rather eat sea food at a long john silver than go there again and pay $70 for the same quality. I have no problem paying for my food however much it costs, but if im paying good money, i want good quality. Dont think i would come back. Plus, a smile from the receptionist wouldnt hurt..."

  • "Eating in the dining room is different than bar area. We decided on bar area just to try the happy hour specials. It was very busy and loud but again...not the norm in the Dining room. Everything was good. Went back after concert and had a nighcap. Servers are kind and helpful."

  • "We had a 6:30 reservation. Got there an hour earlier than anticipated. Had a nice time at the bar. Was disappointed that they sat us 15 minutes late since they knew we were there early. But, food was great and it was perfect for our celebration . "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "We had a 6:45 reservation, but were not seated until 7:50. The hostesses were very nonchalant about the restaurant being so far behind and the manager was no where to be found. They continued to tell all patrons that they were "a little behind" as they checked in to be seated. In most restaurants there would have at least been someone offering light fare or soft drinks during a delay this big but not this place. They clearly overbooked themselves and had no idea how to recover. I proposed to my wife at a McCormick & Schmidt's so I obviously love the restaurant, however this location is a place I will never return to. I will add that when the manager FINALLY DID SHOW UP, I was able to speak to him. He gave us 2 free appetizers..."
