    The appetizers were barely warm. The Crab Stuffed Mushrooms were chewy even though full of crab. Best thing on the Sampler plate was the Avocado and Crab dip. I am not sure about a recommendation at this time. Dinner has always been very good but this was a disappointing experience. Ed Chouinard

    The only recommendation I have would be to change the bread to some kind with a more tender crust. The bread slices we were served had a very tough trust, Could not eat it. Otherwise, everything was great.

    It took over an hour to get our food although our waitress was super nice it feels like she forgot a lot of things I feel like the food was over a price for what I ate it just wasn’t good it’s very unseasoned I don’t know if I’ll be back there again or at least no time soon

    Everything was great except that we had ordered mud pie and it tasted like it had been in the freezer too long. It was a little icy and the taste was a little off. That was our only disappoint. Thank you for a nice evening.

    Lots of variety for seafood lovers, and even plenty of options for non-seafood lovers. The service was great. The only complaint from the group was that some of the food seemed to be a bit under-seasoned. But otherwise, well worth a visit.

    A good visit with family. Ambience great. Everybody enjoyed the food, except for myself. The trout was terrible -- Overcooked, practically tasteless, etc. The potato, vegetables, and bread were quite good.

    The oysters were warm! Lol how do you serve warm oysters on the half shell? The drinks were weak. The food was disgusting. Heat and eat. Had the admiral feast. Didn't finish it at all. The potatoe skins had barely any bacon again tasted like heat and eat. Learned my lesson never again

    2.5 Stars. Pretty disappointed in the quality of food at this location. We ordered the crab cakes as an appetizer and the center was freezing cold. They provided a replacement but they are low quality and flavorless. The crab and shrimp pasta included boiled, flavorless shrimp with garlic cream sauce like water. The “wood fired prawns” were boiled and finished off with a brûlée torch to look wood fired. Also, we waited ten minutes for our beverages, after the appetizers arrived. The place was probably less than half full and it took way too long for our food to arrive. The staff were very friendly on a lighter note. The salads are really good with good dressing and the crab and artichoke dip was tasty as well. The lack of quality and service is probably attributed to the recent labor shortages. Won’t be returning though.

    Unfortunately, the food was poorly prepared and came out cold…grilled shrimp looked as if it was boiled and put on skewers…nothing at all to show that they were grilled. The rice pilaf had an odd taste to it…the lobster tail seemed like it had been microwaved. The only saving grace was the wait staff…very nice and extremely professional.

    Unfortunately, both coffee beverage and food arrived cold. Took quite a while for them to come out too. Fish was hot and good quality but fries were cold and one order came out with a baked potato (not fries). Just an overall "meh" experience. Maybe it was just a bad night, doesn't really matter at this point. I know one thing for sure, it definitely wasn't worth driving over the bridge for.

    We are friends who haven’t seen each other in awhile. We were on our way to a handbell concert so we stopped for an early dinner at McGrath’s. We are all very disappointed that you’ve closed the Milwaukie location.

    The food is always hot and well prepared, the service personable and quick, and the restaurant itself is comfortable and relaxing. My wife and I eat here probably once every couple of weeks and there are many reasons for that. Our hats are off to the servers and cooks who work hard to take care of us. Thank you, all!

    For years, we've eaten at McGrath's-Milwaukie, OR. During the pandemic, it closed and didn't reopen. Since then, we've been to McGrath's-Vancouver, WA once at lunch and then just yesterday at dinner. Service was great; thanks, Melissa. However, our seafood dinners were served almost cold, one with mashed potatoes that looked as if they'd been browned with a faintly tanned crust on them. My husband's lobster was almost inedible. We were disappointed that our $80+ evening was ruined; we were there to celebrate his birthday! We will not go back!
