I just love McCormicks the food there is the best. From the appetizers to the main course well prepared and tasteful. I went to the location in Atlantic City and have been hooked ever since. I will be going back real soon.

The food was good. Service was poor. We did not order any alcoholics drinks and not everyone in our party ordered appetizer. I was able to see a clear difference in service between the table that ordered alcoholic drinks and our table.
I would not return to this restaurant and I would rather go to Wolfgang or Char for next special occasion.

We had a delightful dinner. Our waiter was so much fun - he really enlivened the evening. The seafood selections were interesting and varied. Service was very good.
If you are looking for a very quiet place, this isn't it, but it was fine for ordinary conversation. We will go back.

Just wanted to tell you that the food was delicious, the mood was fabulous, and my company was fantastic. We were celebrating my husbands birthday . We didn't get the free dessert because we didn't know about the club you have. So no free dessert :( .

But we still had a great time. The waitress was a girl but I don't think she gave her name , maybe she did but we didn't catch it. She was fantastic and unbelievable when she needed no paper to take our order. I always wondered how do they do that....

We had a fantastic time . We walked over from the Bridgewater Marriott and the weather and evening breeze made our night great!!! Food was awesome!!! Drinks fabulous!!! We definitely be coming back.

It was my husbands birthday weekend. We gave him a surprise birthday party at The Landing in Hillsborough and all weekend he talked to everyone about your restaurant and food.

Thank you so much for a wonderful night .

Sincerely,
Mrs. Alice Wojtowicz

Excellent food, great service with a very friendly, and fun, server! very enjoyable meal experience.

One of our party has hearing issues, so a group of 17 youngsters nearby was somewhat of a distraction to him, but the others at our table did not feel the same distraction. The young people were not boisterous, just normal group chatter.

So, yes, I do recommend for quiet conversation, especially if in a booth.

This was part of a “girls” weekend. We enjoyed our dinner. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable and what she didn’t know, she found an answer for us. We would definitely dine here again.

Food was outstanding and the service was very good. They created a special menu for the occasion. It was a Sunday evening and there were less than 10 tables occupied. Most everything was excellent.

A nice upscale eatery with an active bar and a fairly quiet seating area. The service was excellent in every way and they try their best to accommodate the customer. The food however was a little lacking in several ways. Quantity: The Shrimp Kisses appetizer is wonderful but at around $15 for only 4 shrimp it is very difficult to appreciate, a minimum of 6 would be in order to justify this price (plus it is something everyone at the table will want to try and $30 for 8 shrimp as an appetizer would be truly ridiculous.) Meat temperature: At these prices I NEVER want to get the meat temperature incorrect. My medium filet was most definitely medium rare unfortunately. Since it was a family gathering, I did not send it back. Spices: Another in my party ordered the blackened chicken with cajun sauce linguini. She verbally mentioned that she didn't care for her dish a few times and when asked why she said it was bland. I didn't believe that blackened Cajun dish would be served bland but I tried her dish and sure enough, the sauce was pasty, not tasty, and had little hint of any spice. Her chicken (pre-cut and mixed in) was definitely grilled but blackened? No. Blackened for this type of food description doesn't mean burned, it means using the technique and spices to blacken which was again missing. Our total came to $200 with the tip for three adults and a child. The child meal was fine at $8 but then they charged almost $4 more for a Coke for the child. A drink should always be provided with a child's meal without extra charge. So to recap, nice place, great service, awful price practices, poorly created plates. I only come here about once or twice a year, and now you know why.

We waited over 30 minutes and the manager came over to inform us that our food was dropped and had to wait for another meal. As a courtesy my oysters $7:00 was credited. The waitress was great.

The food was fantastic and the service was good. there was a mix up in the kitchen where they brought my wife's dinner plate out first and then about 5 mins later brought mine out. I am not sure what happened there, but it was a bit annoying that they did not serve our dinner plates at the same time. Other than that, I have nothing but praise for the restaurant. Our Server Brandon was absolutely fantastic and we will be asking for him again!

Why do restaurants allow customers to listen to their iPads at full volume when others are trying to have a nice meal out? Not worth the price!

We ate at McCormick and Schmicks twice last week. On both occasions the service was not very good. At one meal the waitress kept forgetting to bring things we asked for. At the other the waiter didn't know the menu and was very slow. Fortunately, this was the low point to both meals. The food, ambience and drinks were good. The portions were nice sized (with the exception of the lobster tail special) and everything tasted fresh.

Looking for a seafood place on Friday during lent at 5:30. Everywhere else was booked or had long waits. Food was ok, but on the pricey side for what it was.

Greetings,
Four of us dined on Sunday afternoon. We were seated in a "snuggle", which was private and felt as if we were dining in a train car from days gone by. The food was fresh and attractively plated. (Coffee could have been hotter.) Our Server was polite and professional, as was the rest of the staff. Absolutely no complaints. We look forward to returning in future.

We have frequented M&S many times before this evening. Food has always met our expectations. This particular evening was Valentines Day. We had 3 couples and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. We never felt rushed and the waitress was exceptional pleasant and engaging. The food was prepared to our specifications. Our group all selected seafood, Tuna, Salmon, grouper and trout. Their suggested premier wine for the evening paired very well with each of our dinners. We shared some delicious deserts between the group and order some specialty coffees. Very pleasant evening and will sure to return again very soon!

Half of the Fish that was served to me is not fresh... you would determine it that half of the fish smells different from another half... never expect this as even if we went there for lunch just because it’s Valentines Day their price are for dinner😟 We asked for extra bread but the server did not gave us... I ate as about to complain about the fish but my husband don’t want me to... we’re just not going to come back... I’m so disappointed as we are members of Landry Club...

Service was unbelievably slow. After nearly 40 minutes, we still had not been served our COLD shrimp cocktail. It is a COLD dish. When our entrées finally arrived, it was clear they have been sitting under the lamps for a very long time. The food is just mediocre, the service is terrible, the manager came over to apologize multiple times but had no offer to make up for the slow service. Other than the happy hour, we will never go back.

This is an upscale chain restaurant. It was upscale. Went there with friends on a Sunday evening. We are all fish lovers and fish is this chains specialty. The fish was fresh and everyone's dinner was excellently prepared. Cooked and seasoned properly. Served promptly. Our waitress, Ally, was knowledgeable and excellent. Service was a little slow but we were not in a hurry. (We were a party of 6.} The manager also checked with us 3 times to be sure we were being serviced properly. Most entrees are priced in the upper $20 to mid $30 range (as I said upscale).
