Let me start by saying the service was excellent. However, the furniture was old and dated - - even scratched my finger on something sticking out of the chair. The food was bland with little flavor and I had to shoo away flies all evening. I felt bad for picking the place as it was a business meal. I normally have a good experience at M&S.

Disappointing experience. Booth was tight, making seating unpleasant especially on one side. It took a long time
To get drinks after being seated. Food and service were average.

This was my first visit and I was very disappointed. So much so, we left after the appetizer and did not order our main dish. I was expecting a high end experience and did not receive that. There were 2 very drunk woman at the bar; sitting separately. One was falling off her chair. I am not sure why they were being served. We ordered the calamari, which was only okay. Based on that, I didn't want to put out the money for a full meal because I did not want to be both disappointed and angry.

Halibut, trout and sea bass were the dinner choices and each were excellent to very good. Salads were more than sufficient, and were a great share dish. Wine selections by the glass were limited, more than I would expect for a large chain. Service was just fine. A tad disappointing that a table of 8 with children was seated alongside our 4 top when restaurant was only 1/3 full.

My pan seared trout was overdone and dry. They did not have the Delaware Bay Oysters available since I was dining sitting at a table and those Oysters were preferred for Happy Hour

Food was very good. Two people in our party ordered salmon, which is difficult to cook correctly. They did very well. Service was outstanding. Drinks were good though the brine in my martini was a bit off. Overall, we would go back again.

Saturday night dinner date and most of the crowd in tee shirts. The dining room and reception dated. Walked past two or three table not cleaned off customer long gone
Thought it would be more upscale considering the prices!
Would not go back. Would rather have a special feeling when dropping $250 for dinner for two
Our waitress was nice genuine but not up on menu and did not seem to care. More interested in selling some dining card

Didn't care for the blackened Cobia. No flavor and very small piece for the price. But everyone else enjoyed their meals.

I was very disappointed with this restaurant, the service was very poor and it was not a busy evening. We had to constantly ask for water refills and food was not prepared as it appeared in the menu or online. The server and the restaurant did not make our birthday celebration special. We paid a large dinner bill which not worth our time or money. We will not be returning to McCormic & Schmicks Seafood in Philadelphia.

This visit was quite disappointing, as I have frequented McCormick's for some time now without any displeasure. This time, I brought my mother for whom this was her first visit, and to both our dismay neither enjoyed our entree! We ordered the clam chowder, bacon wrapped shrimp entrees we both ordered the stuffed shrimp. The shrimp with our entrees were extremely dry and chewy and not appetizing at all. Sheryl, our server was very very nice and was a pleasure, as well as the manager who came after. This was an isolated experience I want to say, and would NOT rule out trying McCormick's again, I just feel it needed to be expressed!

Went out for a work dinner and our server was not attentive at all. Other servers came by to ask on the beginning if someone had been to the table. I was very disappointed in the food tonight. The best thing was the wedge salad.

I appreciated that the noise level was very low. I ordered the the entree that included salmon, grilled shrimp, stuffed shrimp and a crab cake. Everything was cooked perfectly except the salmon. The salmon was over cooked. I just left it on the plate. I also ordered a spinach and mushroom sauté. That was amazing!

Service was terrible we waited 40 minutes for water and never mind our food it never came by the time It did finally come our kids were in such an uproar that we could not even sit down and actually eat and the worst part was they didn’t even have a full dining room maybe five tables at Max. Never Again!

Truly disappointed. Having been to many of their stores, this one needs a kitchen overhaul or staff retrianing. Our visit started off well, greeted nicely, once seated our server acknowledged us and was attentive, the ambience was nice, noise level low. We ordered Fish and chips, the chips gready and overseasoned, the fish was so heavily breaded, the fish could hardly be found. the other dish was Idaho Rainbow Trout, heavily coated with almondd and grilled in so much butter it was glued to the fish, the orzo side dish was tasty. I order fish because I like fish, with a little extra like butter and almonds but this was overdone.

In a word. Terrible. I understand a Thursday can be busy w a lot of large groups and I am a patient person, but could not be embarrassed further by this establishment. 1. Waiter no where to be found, had to get up multiple times to ask to order, get more drinks, etc. 2. Every single order was wrong when food came out and the waiter had NO idea who had what 3. One of our guest was not served while everyone else was for 15 minutes!!! Horrible! 4. One guest specifically told waiter he was vegan and ordered a salad. It came w bacon it, awful and my guest felt awkward and just scooped to the side. Will never attend again.
