Our waiter was not very attendant to us when we came and only visited our table a total of 5 times our entire time there. It took him 20 minutes to deliver our check. The crab cake sandwich was delicious but the grilled shrimp were very bland. The environment was good though.

My husband and I loved the food and the manager was great, she called me before my reservation because it was cloudy and asked if it rains do I mind sitting indoors instead of patio, we appreciated that call. However when we got there it was no rain and was sitting outside the waiter she put us with had tables directly in the sun , we asked for a shaded table which was a different waitress and oh boy!!! The service was so POOR I forget her name our drinks were delayed, like she forgot, our food took every bit of 45 min wait. People came in and sat after us and got waited on faster. She definetely needs more training. But big thanks to the kitchen because the food was delicious. If I ever return and see she's my waitress I will leave immediately. To find out who she was my name is Ms. Mccall I paid with a $85 gift card and cash on 7/5/20, my reservation was for 6:30 pm

Didn’t have much to choose from. When you think of McCormick your thinking flavorful and tasty. Food was bland and shrimp on top of my salmon was the size of a penny smh. Highly disappointed. Waiter was the only thing I liked about the restaurant .

Even amidst the changes M&S has made to comply with new protocols, they did not disappoint. Our server, Miller, was exceptional. He was very attentive and he had a great personality! I was unable to get scallops so he recommended other choices based on my seafood preferences. The Chilean Sea Bass was amazing! Everyone in my party of 3 loved their food. We loved our water view table, which was spaced far enough away from other tables for us to feel comfortable dining out during the pandemic. Overall we had a wo fearful experience.

I wish I understood that the menu had a limited selection. Also, it took so long after we placed our order, we had to ask the waitress for the bread once we saw she brought the bread out for a table that sat after us. The $30 meal should have been more like $20 and the fried shrimps were not deveined. I have never had to devein shrimp at a restaurant before and I have frequent this establishment to many times to count. Very disappointing and that service signaled to me to stay inside until after COVID is figured out.

Server was amazing!!! Food was nothing special not bad but no character or real flavor with an excessive amount of pepper on all the items. The hostess was cold and unfriendly. They did not answer the Phone when I called to check our reservation. Won’t be going back will try another upper scale restaurant in hopes of better food and friendly.

I’ve been dining with Stoney River for about the last three years. Over that time it’s become one of my favorite restaurants to go to whenever I’m in a close proximity to Towson. Delicious food and amazing service. My server Tiana was absolutely amazing.

Hostess was rude and dismissive. Seating policies were haphazard. We entered and were brusquely told to make a reservation, which we did—but upon return we were instructed to wait because they were “seating walk-ins.” If they were, in fact, allowing walk-ins, why were WE forced to schedule in advance—and still made to wait past our scheduled time?

They were not prepared to have as many people as they did for outdoor dining and only had one server who was doing her best but not attentive at all. Food was mediocre, best part was sitting outside

As a Marylander, I’ve had better flavored seafood. The vegetables were heavily salted and the roasted potatoes were very dry. My date stated that the fried oysters were pretty good and he enjoyed the pesto twist. Overall I would probably not return for the food but definitely the outdoor seating view.

The crab and shrimp stuffed Salmon lacked the crab, I didn't taste any, and has frozen baby shrimp instead of fresh. My meal was taken to another table so I had to wait for it to be prepared again. The drink was more juice than alcohol. Otherwise the greeter was super friendly and the atmosphere was nice.

McCormick and Schmick's is one of my favorite restaurants! My last experience was horrible. Now, my husband and I are not one to complain but with our past experience at this 4 star restaurant we have a level of expectations that just was not met at all!

So we made a reservation for lunch, got seated very quickly! We waited over 5 minutes to ask the host where our waitress was. Host response : "Oh!".... totally forgot about us.

Waitress comes out and we place an appetizer order of 6 blue point oysters and a side Caesar salad..some lemons for our water. She writes everything down. Waited 10 minutes for our apps..still no lemons. Salad comes out..very skimpy. 2/6 oysters were "gritty" and one was extremely small..not an experienced shucker.

Finally had to voice our concern..manager comes out, slightly defensive and made an excuse about the waitress being new and the pandemic being the reason why our experience sucked. However, she was more than happy to bring another oyster, which was gritty, and more salad!

Placed an order for cobia and seabass with seasonal vegetables. Seabass was extra salty, cobia lacked any flavor at all. And green beans and roasted potatoes were also bland.

I was really looking forward to this pre-anniversary lunch as we had to cancel once for the rain (outdoor seating), second for the protest, and a third time because the reservation was too late at night. I guess it was a sign unfortunately.

Our server was amazing and so was the host and the bartender that fixed our drinks! The food was absolutely disappointing. The shrimp kisses were great but the steak was overcooked and the crab cakes did not taste fresh. It was not the best food experience, at all!

Went for our first dinner out since COVID pandemic. It was alright. they are still getting used to masks and gloves. Outdoor dining only. It was a VERY limited or basic menu. Overall, okay but for the prices could go somewhere else and get a little more flavor.

Food honestly was Amazing!! But the service was TERRIABLE booked a reservation for my anniversary and the waitress Taylor told us that because it’s raining we can’t come. She was so rude she said that if we wanna eat in the rain we can. Honestly so upsetting when there food is such good quality! Change your waitress!!!! Never dining in ever!!!

Food was excellent, however a little pricey for quantity (Chilean Sea Bass and Crab Cakes. Service was bit subpar to say the least. Outside seating was not packed and took a little bit to be seen, order drinks and finally order food. Water was empty and so was my drink mid meal when I was finally asked if I wanted another drink when they asked if we wanted dessert.

The Cesar salad didn’t have much dressing which made the chicken a bit dry. Thought the prices were somewhat high but we also understand the location (Inner Harbor) may contribute to those prices. It was very nice to sit on that patio on such a beautiful day. All diners were appropriately spaced apart.
