This restaurant chain never disappoints and we had a fantastic dinner and service. Although very busy and loud our food was superb and served quickly. The crab dip appetizer was the best I’ve ever had anywhere.

I used to come here every-now-and-then when visiting Atlanta; however, after this trip I will not return. It took over 45 minutes to be seated, even with 715pm reservations--this operation was a disaster, especially at the main entrance where there was neither a system nor a clear leader in place. Recommend a systems engineer checks processes here considering this is your prime time to make money and impress what seems to be a more affluent clientele base.

Once we were seated, it took some time to be greeted and given the menu, and it was even longer to get water and then drinks. Though the food came out quickly, it was simply mediocre given its price. To be given the correct check in order to leave (remember, we had been in the same stuffy restaurant for about two hours now), we waited 15 minutes--mostly because the server was attending to, too many other tables.

Overall, we were far from impressed.

We ate here because it was close to the convention center , the weather was terrible and we could get a reservation. However, the meal left much to be desired. I had the supposedly award winning clam chowder and it tasted more like bacon than clam. I also had the twin lobster tails and the plate had a glob of mashed potatoes with lobster bisque spooned over it like a sauce. The tails were tiny and overcooked. No vegetable on the plate, except for 1/2 small tomato that wasn't really grilled or broiled - just warm. My husband did enjoy his blackened snapper and that dish was at least balanced with a vegetable.

I had the chef special, which was the ribeye. I specially asked for extra seasoning and it came out with no seasoning. Plus the waiter never stated that each item accompanying the steak( mash potatoes, scallops, asparagus) was charged as al carte..

I had their seafood trio. It came with properly cooked string beans BUT someone in the kitchen had a heavy hand with the pepper. Salmon was part of the seafood trio. Again, there was too much pepper. The menu said nothing about the seasoning of the salmon or the string beans. My mouth was on fire from all the pepper. I asked for and got some sour cream to kill the burn. My waitress was great. When I complained about the pepper, I was immediately offered new salmon and string beans without pepper. I was also given a free desert. If it wasn’t for the pepper, I would have given them 4 to 5 stars.

It was my first time visiting and it will not be my last. The food was great. The atmosphere was great. Service was great. The restaurant itself is located right in the middle of the action. You can eat and have fun at Phillips, Mercedes Benz stadium or just hang out.

Was really disappointed. They were out of the entree and dessert I wanted. Yet when I left I saw a fresh dessert come out that I had requested to another customer. The service was slow and sloppy. The music was way too loud and lighting level extremely low.

Had a reservation but that didn’t matter- still had to wait 40 minutes and was then rushed to eat since they were closing in 20 minutes. Plenty of open tables while we waited too, but no one cleaning them. Food was expensive for quality- steak was bland.

We booked a last minute reservation at this restaurant following the recent SEC Championship game at the Mercedes Benz stadium. The location is just around the corner from the stadium. The staff was very accommodating and appetizers were quickly delivered. They also offered a children's menu with many options.

We had lunch at McCormick & Schmick's on Saturday before attending a football game at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Our reservations were for 12:30 and we arrived a bit early but were promptly seated. The service was outstanding with our waiter being very attentive but not intrusive. We were with friends and both couples wanted to share a Wedge Salad. We were surprised that the salads were brought to the table whole and we had to divide them ourselves. Most restaurants perform that task before serving a shared salad. We each ordered different entrees and the general consensus was that the food was good but not outstanding.

Our experience was ok at best. Our server was great, had a good attitude, however the food was just ok. When we went in we told the hostess we had reservations, however she was busy going through menu's and told us to sit in the bar. After several people came in and were seated after us in excellent seats, we went up and asked out our reservations. The hostess told us she did not even remember talking to us. She then proceeded to send us to a table in the back area, very small, no view. Everyone else had tables with excellent views and were not placed at small table. There were several good tables available. The lunch menu's were not available at lunch time, although they showed on their website, so we ordered from the dinner menu at 11:30 in the morning, which was much higher. Our server told us it was because it was the SEC weekend, although their website said nothing about this. The only saving grace was our pleasant server. It was my hubby's birthday, however, they did not recognize it, even though I placed this on our online reservation with Open Table.

Always try to visit this restaurant when in town. Service is as good as you will find anywhere. Never lacked for anything. Wait staff are pleasant and accommodating any special request. Had the filet (rare) and seared tuna. Both were tasty and prepared exactly as requested. Never been disappointed here.

Dining before concert at Philips arena. Food was great and server was friendly and efficient. Unfortunately, the restaurant had not planned bar or kitchen staff appropriately to handle the pre concert crowd. It was a very long wait to get drinks and food to the table.

We have eaten there most times we go to a concert at Phillips. They normally are busy, but handle things well and food is normally always good. On Tuesday night (before Lady Gaga)...it was normally busy. We ordered our food fast...waited for over an hour for our food. It arrived luke warm after we kept asking about it. Had to find a manager. It appeared many people were unhappy. The compted us some, but for the price of this restaurant, it was not equitable. And no real apologies. Clearly, there were lots of issues. Very hesitant to go again...

We arrived on time for our reservation and were asked to wait to be seated even though the restaurant was at best half full. When a manager finally walked by I asked why we had to wait for a table. He seated us immediately. Our server was exceptionally warm, friendly, and helpful.

The wedge salad and oysters were delicious. The sword fish was also very good. The turkey dinner was very disappointing as the turkey appeared to be left over bits of dark meat. I guess that knowing that this restaurant specializes in sea food, we should have dined elsewhere for our Thanksgiving day dinner.

Excellent service--friendly, attentive but not hovering and very accommodating. Food was well prepared and aesthetically pleasing. The steak was perfect. My companions said their fish were perfectly prepared and well presented. The desserts were amazing--upside down apple pie, chocolate cake and spiced cheesecake. The Malbec by the glass was superb. The restaurant gets loud because of high ceilings and large spaces, but everything about the restaurant is well worth the dining experience.

The food was ok. The lobster bisque confused me because it was more of a watery consistency rather than a cream one. The crab cake was mushy but I'm from the North so I'm not sure if it's just up here that the crab cakes are more compact versus mushy. The stuffed shrimp and salmon were amazing! Our waiter was a little out of it. Could have been a long day, not sure but we got there a good 20 mins before another couple seated next to us and they got their soup the same time as we did. He just seemed to be lost or disinterest but we still tipped at least 20% because I always do that anyway. Overall, it was good. I would return but I would request a different waiter.
