Many things going on in Houston. However, it was a wonderful place to dine after a questionable meal at another restaurant the night before. Would highly recommend.

The shrimp kisses were amazing! Considering it was lunch time in downtown Houston, the service was very fast and the food was amazing. I would recommend bringing bread to the table prior to the start of the meal and appetizers. We received the bread after we ate the appetizers and some were working on their soup and salads.

We forgot that M&S is a chain in the worst sense of the word. It used to be pretty good, but it's become way too much of a "chain" mentality. Menu was limited to be candid, the wine and booze list was exponentially longer than the food item list -- we get it, you make all the money on the booze/wine and you want us to drink up! We won't go back. The food is OK, but no outstanding anymore. Bright spot was our server - ex military and he knew how to pay attention to all the tables under his purview, super polite and courteous (EVERYONE should get some military training in this respect), and he conversed with us during the meal.

The food was excellent. The service was horrible. We were on a home schedule. That's the reason I
made reservations. I took an entire hour to get our food. Afterwards it took 45 minutes to get our tickets. We had to actually go to the back where the register was, to speed the process things up. There was a game out I asked who was the manager. She told me that he was working with the thickets. Once I got back there she started working on them. The service overall was just ok.

I never got my lunch. The wrong item was brought to me, and it wasn’t replaced until everyone was finished with their meals, and it was just a salad. I got it to go because my clients had to get back to work. I literally had no meal the entire lunch.

Unfortunately very disappointing service. Sat at a table for 40 minutes without service. After asking someone finally came and then disappeared again. Only to put blame on the customer with an extremely rude demeanor.

We were invited for a free lunch on Memorial Day to honor my wife and I as veterans. I served and my wife’s first husband was killed in Vietnam. We were treated like royalty and service was outstanding. Food was perfect!! Restaurant was amazing as all Tillman’s restaurants are! Fine job to everyone there

I already wrote a review for Yelp and for McCormick's. I have been a customer there since they opened in 2011. I went to the free Veterans meal on Memorial Day, and for the first time, I was charged a $.50 to go fee for the strawberry shortcake I ordered for take out. I thought this was a little much, as their prices are already pretty steep. The chef needs some training on food preparation. A shortcake is made with the biscuit on the bottom, with strawberries, juice, and cream on top. This was the opposite with the berries on the bottom, and a dry biscuit on top. It was not very good! Also, food presentation is important. The food was very good, but I had ordered the Parmesan Crusted Chicken with mashed potatoes and veggies. The veggies and mashed potatoes were on the bottom of the plate, with two hunks of chicken on top. It was not very appealing. Presentation is important!

We had a very enjoyable Mother’s Day Brunch here. The food and service were excellent. The restaurant ambiance is very enjoyable. Even though there were a lot of big groups, ours included, we were able to hold conversations with each other and we didn’t have to talk over the din. Our server was awesome and took special care of my father-in-law, who has health issues. Our server was very attentive and paid attention to all our needs.

We had a lovely Mother’s Day brunch. The food and service were excellent. The only tiny issue was the tables were very close together to accommodate for this busier day. Squeezing in to a cramped area and then having another persons chair right behind me was a bit uncomfortable. The waitstaff seemed to have some difficulty squeezing to get to certain tables/diners as well.
Overall we enjoyed ourselves very much.

McCormick’s has some of the best seafood in Downtown Houston. The oysters and mixed cocktails are my favorites. There’s no better place to get extremely delicious and fresh oysters at a very reasonable price! Customer service there is a 10/10. Waiters will describe every item to perfection and give amazing recommendations.
