The service here at McCormick and Schmidt never disappoints. I had the eight ounce filet mignon medium it was perfect and was very tasty. We also had the new England clam chowder delicious one of the best I've ever had. The wine Robert Mondavi Cabernet was delicious and so was the fried calamari I highly recommend this place

It was my boyfriend’s birthday. The food and drinks were really good. The margaritas were amazing! The service was nice as well. Every time I come to Atlantic City this is one of my go-to’s because this restaurant never disappoints.

One of the best bowls of lobster bisque I’ve ever had. Tad bit disappointed that the “lobster mashed potatoes “ was just the bisque served over them....but still was great tasting. Cherry mule drink was fantastic too. My filet was good but I’m not sure if I was aware it was prepared by grill. I liked it but I’m not big on charcoal grilling of meats. Again...it WAS good. Didn’t save room for dessert

My Husband’s Steak was excellent. Everything was good however I rated the food with just 3 stars because my roasted potatoes were very dry, the lobster mash was not very tasteful & my Alaskan King crab legs were cold. BUT that bone in T-bone was terrific. Yes I would recommend this place & eat here again the service was great & the place is very elegant.

We were able to get an early dinner reservation on Saturday of Valentines weekend. Our service was good-polite and prompt. We both had steaks which were cooked to our liking. My only issue was that the lights were so dim that I could not see to cut away the little bits of fat or grizzle on my steak. Sides were delicious as well. I had also ordered the ahi tuna appetizer. That I was not as happy with. The tuna was sliced a little thin for my liking and it was a little too spicy as well. We didn’t have room for dessert so I can’t comment on that. On the whole it was a pleasant experience.

On a recent trip to AC, we were excited to have a date night at McCormick & Schmick's. We're parents of a 4 year old and, especially this past year, date nights have been far and few between. But we left underwhelmed.

The place is nice - a bit dark and moody, but that was to be expected. We were sat in one of the "isolated" booths around the perimeter that is like its own little room. We really liked that. But that was about the end of the praise. First we ordered drinks - my wife asked for Sangria and the server (John) asked what she wanted in it. That was odd to us, but okay. I asked for a Blue Moon, and he said they were out. Okay, lemonade it is then. He brought us bread - three small pieces - which was delicious. Then we ordered calamari for an appetizer. It was basically tasteless. It was breaded and fried, which was great, but the seasoning was completely lacking and the included marinara dipping sauce was clearly off the shelf and also pretty bland. We ate it because we were starving, but it was nothing special.

For entrees, we both got seafood - she got the grilled combo (salmon, crab cakes and stuffed shrimp) and I got crab cakes. Both tasted great but were not special - for the price paid we expected to be wowed. Even the presentation was just "regular" and these two meals were easily something we could get in Point Pleasant at the Shrimp Box for far less money.

I know we were at a casino hotel and therefore expected the "casino tax" on our meal, but we just left wanting more for what we paid. I doubt we will return again.

COVID Notes:
Everyone we observed, both staff and customers, was adhering to the mask and distancing policies where appropriate. Tables were spaced out or skipped for safety as well. We felt completely safe throughout our entire visit.
