This was our second time at this restaurant. We were not disappointed either time. The food was excellent. We each had an appetizer. One was a mixed green salad with walnuts and the other was a bowl of lobster bisque soup. Both were delicious. I will always look forward to ordering the soup again; it was so good. The entrees were an 8 oz. Fillet mignon and the crab cakes. Both were so very good but the fillet was exceptional. The service was friendly, helpful and attentive. Highly recommended.

I think overall everything was amazing. The food was superb the best seafood I have had in a while. The waitress was very good as well. The only thing I did not like was Atmosphere. It was 7pm when we were finished and it felt like 12 very dark and downbeat. Wish the lighting was a bit a better.

Lobster bisque was excellent. Service is very spotty. Food prep was adequate at best. They missed cranberry sauce, squash bisque, and a beer that never came. Fish was very good. Steak was underdone. Ambiance was nice.

Another great meal in a very comfortable setting. All four of our meals, from apps through desserts, were very good, and our server, Deborah, was excellent.

Elliott was my host and this guys will someday be a top player in this business, his customer service was second to none and had a vast knowledge on the dishes that we on the menu. His personality was pleasant and very confident and gave us the instant need to trust his guide to a wonderful evening. It was my wife's birthday and she absolutely enjoyed her night and we will definitely visit again as the food was awesome and to top it off Elliott took her a candle lit, chocolate coated icecream filled dessert and sang her happy birthday. Elliott I cant thank you enough. Wish you all the best.

Veterans Day. My husband is a Vietnam veteran and we ate dinner last night while at Harrah’s, Atlantic City. Our dinners were delicious and we thought it was very gracious of McCormicks & Schmick’s to offer all veterans a free entree! We assumed the free entree was just for the veteran but my entree was free too. It touched our hearts
To receive this gift. Thank you!!

We once again attended the Veterans Day celebration at M&S at Harrah's in Atlantic City. The staff was friendly and inviting, greeting us promptly, and ushering us to our table at or requested reservation time. Our waiter greeted us promptly, thanked us for our service, and quickly took our order. Due to the volume of traffic for the Veterans Day offering, service seemed a little slower than normal, but was within reason. Once our meal arrived, it was typically wonderful M&S. Thanks to M&S for another wonderful Veterans day!

McCormick & Schmick's Seafood restaurant in Atlantic City, NJ is one of my go to spots. The food is delicious, the service is always great the pricing is fair. They also give back to the community each and every year with their Veteran's Day and Memorial Days free dinners for service members past and present as well as their families. Great place for an intimate date or a social gathering.

Kudos to M&S for their policy of each year providing a free lunch or dinner entree to vets, their spouses, active military and gold star families. The menu choices are all very good -- something for everyone -- fish, chicken, beef etc. There were four of us, three of us had the salmon -- planked for two, grilled for the other one, and one order of beef tips. All were excellent. We finished the meal by ordering desserts from the regular menu -- the chocolate silk pie is outstanding as is the cinnamon ice cream. Service was very good -- friendly, efficient, and it was nice that the server asked specifically who at the table were veterans and thanked them each individually for their service. Nice touch.
We enjoyed the meal and definitely appreciate that M&S does this each year.

Service was wonderful, ambiance was calm. The food selections were amazing. The lobster Cobb tower was yummy but could have easily been shared. The trout was tender and very flavorful as was the swordfish . Would definitely go again.

Our server was horrible! Not very attentive, slow and Haut nervously laughed about everything. My wife who is not seafood eater but agreed to the venue because of the short ribs was very disappointed when ordering them was informed they weren’t available because they weren’t ready because they sold out the previous day. Maybe that should have been brought to our attention when we were given the menus. Also, we ordered a second round of drinks while finishing our first course which never were served. We would have told our server during our entree but she never returned to the table until we were done to see if we wanted dessert. When the check was delivered, we informed her that we never got our second round of drinks. She apologized and said she would take it off the check. Food also was only luke warm on arrival at our table with a crust on mashed potatoes meaning it sat under a warming light for some time before being served.

Not a good night!

Shrimp and salmon was extremely overcooked. Bread was undercooked and doughy. Tuna was not prepared correct and was lacking flavor.

The food to us was like any typical chain restaurant and we knew this place was a chain. However given it's reputation we figured we would give it go since it seemed to come across as more of a high end establishment. The problem was they are serving chain roster style food at more of a high end restaurant price. Given it's AC I understand we just expected the food to be a bit more up on the scale than what you could get a Longhorn. Bottom line save your money an check out somewhere else.

My husband and I really enjoyed our anniversary dinner at McCormick & Schmick's in AC. Our server was fabulous! Our dinner was delicious! Our drinks were amazing! I had the swordfish and my husband had the filet/shrimp combo. Both dinners were perfect. Our server even brought us a celebratory chocolate cake! Devine! We will definitely go here again when we're in AC!! I highly recommend!!

Wonderful meal! We were seated in a curtained-off table that was very private. Food was delicious & craft cocktails were creative & very good. Our server was professional & attentive. Also check out their happy hour. Variety of drinks & food for reasonable prices. It was well attended & people were waiting for seats. Will definitely return.

The music was very loud and upbeat. Upbeat music is ok but we were there for a romantic dinner and didn’t get that feel. Service wasn’t great. Our server said twice that she would bring over dinner bread and she never did. We asked the runner who brought our dinner out for bread and he said he would bring it. Our server was the one who finally brought the bread out and she said “here’s a little more bread for you.” Even though we never got bread in the first place.

We always have a great time at M&S, started in the Bar Area for Happy Hour, moved into the Dining Room for Dinner. John was our server, he kept things moving, even though there was a banquet going on and everyone was really busy. I tried the Whole Striped Bass, strong and fishy, but I never had it before so I don't know if that is normal. Also, I felt it was a little overpriced at $39. My wife had the Trout, excellent, I helped her finish it. The cajun oysters were great and the caesar salad also.
Overall, a fantastic experience.
