Brittany as our server was amazing. What a special night!!
I have to add more to this because Brittany and the entire staff was beyond amazing. From the special way they treated us and my girlfriend. Brittany even brought out a free dessert to celebrate our special occasion. The food was outstanding too! Can’t wait to go back!

We went for their Veterans Day special. It is by far the best meal you will get on Veterans Day.

My husband and I made reservations for 8:00, to celebrate our anniversary. We checked in at 10 till 8 and the hostess told us we could wait at the bar until a table opened. There was a male employee standing near her and he told my husband “at the rate this is going you’re better off ordering at the bar.” We waited until 8:40 and finally just ordered food at the bar. The wait staff and bartenders complained loudly all night about how they were ready to go home and the day had been too long and busy. We were told the restaurant was out of bread completely. When our food came and we asked for linens and utensils they gave us cocktail napkins. They said they were out of linens as well. This was definitely not the experience we expected at McCormick and Schmidt’s.

We waited for a waiter after being seated at our table for what I think was unwelcoming, I estimate the wait to be thirty (30) minuets or more, after placing our orders another 30 to 45 minuets passed before we received our food. We got no bread, and when we requested bread, we were told that the restaurant had run out of bread. In my 78 years of life, eating in restaurants all over the world, this was the first time a restaurant had run out of bread. I have had very pleasant dining experiences at M&C restaurants before.

I took my dad to McCormick & Schmick's on Sunday for Veteran's Day!! We had a great time as both his and my meal were complimentary and delicious!! We got nice homemade bread served to our table before we ordered and also ordered our drinks - I got the calamari for both of us for an appetizer and we both ordered the fried shrimp which came with fries and cole slaw! It was really great!! For dessert, we both ordered the upside down cinnamon apple pie with cinnamon ice cream!! Really incredible awesome! We had a nice time and dad talked about it all the way home! Thanks again for a great day!! So really nice that you do this for the veterans as they sure deserve it!!

This has been one of the best downtown Baltimore restaurants to honor Veterans. Outside of November the 10th, I have visit here several times and I have found it to be the same. A great place to visit with friends and family. The food is awesome and timeliness to receive your meal was found to be head above most of the other downtown restaurants.

We went there for Veterans Day and they treated all vets and their families with extreme respect. It was a very nice touch having the POW/MIA table in front of the restaurant. Service was wonderful Can't wait to go back.

We like M&S as a rule
However, we were disappointed to say the least
Neither the hostess or our waiter Juan took the extra place settings away
The clam chowder was basic and not particularly tasty
The Fish & Chips Was uninspiring!

Juan was utilitarian and did his best to “upswell” throughout

Overall, we were disappointed

However, we will likely try another M&S - likely not in Baltimore

What a great waiter and venue to have a quiet business lunch. The service was impeccable but not intrusive. Our waiter was there when we needed him.
The food was the main event. Oysters were as fresh as if they were just harvested. The crab cake sandwich was very filling and tasty. Will be back in two weeks for lunch again!

We went here for my husband’s 50 birthday and we were very disappointed! The service was slow, the food was just ok(definitely not worth the price), the parking was very expensive and we were told they couldn’t validate or ticket! Its nothing like it used to be! The best part was our waiter, who was nice. We will never return to this restaurant!

We went early so the restaurant was very quiet which we enjoyed. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The crab stuffed shrimp was excellent, but for the price I felt 5 wasn’t enough to fill me up. The restaurant is a bit pricy as most items are a la carte. We realize most restaurants in that area are the same; nothing included with the main course. The waitress we had was outstanding.

Very disappointing dinner due to poor service and food served cold. We ordered a round of drinks with one being a special mixology drink suggested by our server that she would mix at our table. After about 10-15 minutes, the bartender brought 3 of our 4 drinks over to our table. Twenty minutes later, our server appeared and said she was waiting for a tool another server had at the moment so she could mix the special drink. We had been seated for 45 minutes at this point so we cancelled the special drink and ordered a regular cocktail. She appeared with that drink and our appetizers a few minutes later. The fried calamari was cold. When our meals arrived, the potatoes (fries) were also cold. All in all, not a great evening at a restaurant of this caliber.

The two seafood dishes we got, scallops and swordfish, were excellent. Salad greens were a little tired, even some brown around the edges, but salads were still good. Wine prices were quite high even for a restaurant. Service was very uninspired but serviceable. We enjoyed the outdoor dining but both of us left less than impressed.

Got a reservation but the restaurant wasn't busy. Got seated quickly but with so many available tables, we were seated next to a loud table. It's like the deserted beach and someone sets up right next to you. Food wasn't very good and mine was room temperature. Server didn't offer us a dessert menu so we left disappointed and poorer. My wife got fried oysters and the serving size was skimpy (4 oysters the size of a dime) . All in all, we felt unwelcomed and unserved for too much money. Won't return.

This was by far my favorite place while in town. Great food with plenty of options. My wife and I both noticed the service was pretty slow, but then came to the conclusion that it was on purpose because everywhere we went, it was the same. Must be a Baltimore culture thing.

Service was great - appetizer of Shrimp Kisses and the drinks were great. Ordered the split King Crab Legs... for $40 received one leg and it was very over cooked. That was quite disappointing.
