Seafood
The history of McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurants began when Bill McCormick purchased Jake's Famous Crawfish Restaurant located in Portland, Oregon, and brought the more than 100-year-old landmark back to life. When asked the secret of how he revitalized a restaurant on the brink of closing, McCormick says, "I like nothing better than being a good host." Part of the managerial talent McCormick tapped was Doug Schmick, a management trainee. The two formed a partnership in 1974, creating Traditional Concepts, a precursor to today's McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurants. In 1979, they opened the original McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurant in Portland, Oregon. The combination of an open imagination and a respect for tradition are what makes McCormick & Schmick's the classic and successful business that it is today.

The service was excellent. Dishes were appetizing, but served lukewarm - including the lobster bisque. Would try again.

I enjoyed the stuffed crab and shrimp salmon accommodated w/green beans , mashed potatoes. Wedge salad perfect. Great wine selection. Prisoner wine, my favorite . Only complaint, for the price of the wine, should have been a 9 oz. pour, not 7.

Loved the shrimp! The only suggestion is maybe get some Bernaise sauce available for the filet mignon

The atmosphere was nice and quiet when we went the only dissatisfying part for me was I felt like the steaks didn't have much seasoning or much flavor as I was hoping for. The aspargus was delicious though and lobster tail!

We were sat immediately but our drink order took almost 20 minutes. And as soon as we got our drinks our food came. All in all it felt rushed and not worth the money. Will not return.

If your diabetic they will not exchange your starch for a vegetable forced to take the starch they give you for exchange for another starch ......which is defeating the whole purpose of exchanging. Also if you want to exchange your vegetables for another vegetable ,unless its the same price, in which most cases it's not going to be , there will be an extra charge to add the one you would like.

We had a wonderful meal here. Fish entrees were cobia and sea bass. Both were delicious! Chocolate martinis for dessert: yum! Service was excellent and ambiance is classic. We are never disappointed with this restaurant.

Erick our Server was as nice as can be! The privacy of the table set up was a nice surprise. The bread while warm was so-so but the Swordfish was a delight! The green beans could have been cooked a bit more.

We had Charles as our waiter, thank God he was the only waiter wearing a mask. The rest of the staff were not wearing masks including the manager. Very unsafe practice during this surge of Omicron!!! WHAT WERE THEY THINKING???

Web site says specials from 3:30-6:30, however they told me I couldn’t order anything on that menu at 5pm on a Wednesday. Placed order on regular menu which was fine except server had no interest on getting us more drinks or checking on our food. There are lots of restaurants in AC, choose another one.

My lobster tail and roasted potatoes where so dry and overcooked that I do not have any wishes to go back. We did not receive a visit from the manager either. I feel for what we paid it was way overpriced. My husband said his Tuna was great. The music was coming from a speaker from above my head and was so loud I could not hear my husband talking. They said they would turn it down but they never did.

My wife and I had to ask three different people for a waiter or waitress to help us. After eating about 20 minutes we were finally helped. This was very upsetting. 4 people walked passed us and never bothered to help us. I’m sure this may be tread but, nothing will be done.

Server was not very good. It wasn’t very busy and I felt he kept forgetting about us. There was 4 of us at the table 2 did the pre fix menu and got there desserts at the end of dinner w/o asking the other 2 guests if they wanted any dessert.
We tipped him 20% due to the holiday but he really didn’t earn it. Sorry.

They need to extend their menu. Was very disappointed to find on Christmas Eve at 11:45 AM that the lunch menu was not available for the entire weekend. Just wanted something small to hold us over until diner at 6:00PM.

They have become somewhat expensive for what you get. No longer a restaurant that I will intend on dining at. If we do, we do. If we don't, then I won't miss it.

Jessica our waitress was great and attentive. But the guy at the front desk that seated us was dry. My husband told a corny joke and he ignored us. He didn't have to laugh but if you're a host in a restaurant at least acknowledge us, smile, something. Then he seated us like he had somewhere to go, just very rushed, he didn't even give us a drink menu, which when we asked our waitress, the first thing she said was, "he didn't give you one?" This is the reason for the four stars and not five. Overall, everything else was very good.

This is the first time I've eaten at McCormick & Schmick's Seafood. I ordered the holiday special Filet Mignon and it was cooked exactly as I asked. My daughter had the salmon dinner and she said it was really good. The price for the holiday special was reasonable. Salad and desert were included.
