Featuring seasonal seafood, tender steaks and signature oysters, our commitment to freshness is reflected in our daily changing menu. From our seasonal Wild Isles Salmon caught from the coast of Scotland's Shetland Islands, to our Hawaiian Seafood overnighted from the Honolulu Fish Auction, and Wild Pacific Northwest Salmon pulled from pristine river waters, our menu incorporates regional tastes, farm fresh products, and local and sustainably sourced ingredients wherever possible. With our exclusive line of signature oysters sourced from our own private oyster beds, as well as a fine selection of steaks, soups, salads and pasta dishes, McCormick & Schmick's appeals to the tastes of all diners. Our focus on the true spirit of hospitality only adds to our appeal, making us a popular destination on Veterans Day and Memorial Day, where we honor the military with free meals, as well as an ideal setting for private special occasions, date night and business functions.

The waiter was great, he was prompt but not pushy. He want to make sure our meal was good as the people at the next table ordered the same thing and were not satisfied. I thought it was great, some people just can’t be satisfied.

We had a great dinner. The Cesar Salad was very good. Lettuce nice and crisp with a tasty dressing. Our entrees included the Chesapeake Fried Shrimp and the Salmon stuffed with Crab & Shrimp. Both meals were delicious. Unfortunately, we were so full from dinner that we were not able to try any desserts.
Our server, Neil, did a nice job. He was attentive, but not intrusive. We will definitely return for another dining experience. Thank you!!

We have been to this particular location several times and have had solid food each time. We went recently for my son's birthday. I picked it partially because they offer fresh oysters and he wanted fish and steak. The oysters were not separated from the shell well and they were really small. It was a bit laughable. My fish was overcooked but I have not had that experience with this location before. I did not mention it to the server but I have no doubts he would have rectified the situation if I had. My son did enjoy his crème brulee so the evening ended well. It was just an average experience.

Sadly disappointed! Service was very slow for a Tuesday night and the restaurant was not busy. One of our group ordered a filet cooked medium and it came out well done. The server offered to get a new filet but by the time she got her filet, the rest of us were done eating. And her side was cold. I will not be suggesting your restaurant again.

The root vegetables that came with a 32 dollar steak was laughable. We couldn't even recognize what they were. Had to pay 11 for lobster mash potatoes and the serving was too large for 1. They need smaller sides and offer better sides.

I ordered Lobster tails and they were dry and hard. Our waitress was nice, but because they were short staffed it took FOREVER to get everything...drinks, appetizers and our main course. I sent the lobsters back and ordered another grilled seafood dish and it was ok. The Salmon was dry, my grilled shrimp were overcooked, and my crabcake was fried really hard. The stuffed shrimp was the best thing on the plate. I didn't send it back because it took too long to get it after the lobster dinner was returned.

All seafood was very over cooked. Steak was bland. Hard to stomach $55/meal when it’s not even “good.” We went on a Friday night at 7 and the place was dead. I guess we now know why!

I and my partner had a great dining experience at this establishment. There were a couple of groups having a birthday celebration so the noise level was up but tolerable. The service was great. The food, very delectable. I especially enjoyed my Ultimate Mix Grill dinner which 2 varied preparations of shrimp, crab cake and grilled salmon served with mashed potatoes and a side of green beans and carrots. Perfect portions to enjoy without overwhelming. I highly recommend this to anyone who craves seafood. They do have a great selection of meats which I’ll try next time.

I had the best server/hostess in my life. She was very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. I do not remember her name but she deserves a raise for the experience she creates for her customers. The best experiences ever in my 53 years!!!!

My husband and I made reservations here for our one year wedding anniversary. We were very disappointed with our visit. First, they sat us in a booth right by the front door and host station. We were also next to a large party with lots of children. Because we had a reservation and they were aware we were here for a very special occasion, you would think they would have sat us in a nicer part of the restaurant (there were many booths available over there as well). So besides having to sit right where people are walking in and being greeted constantly and hearing phone calls from the host stand, we were sat in a very loud environment. Again, if we were a walk in table, it would be different. Our server was great and very professional. The food was sub par. I got a $40 seafood dish that consisted of salmon, potatoes, green beans, crap stuffed shrimp, fried shrimp, and a crab cake. Literally all my food was cold except the salmon. I’m not a fan of salmon, but the salmon was pretty good. My husband’s steak was extremely fatty, to wear there was hardly any meat. His veggies were also cold. We didn’t say anything to the server. Which I get is our fault, but we are both former servers and feel weird about complaining. We were really hoping for a good romantic night. Unfortunately, it was very disappointing, and very expensive. Our bill was $150 including our 20% tip. We will not come back.
