Seafood

McGrath's Fish House is a staple family restaurant in Vancouver Washington. It serves fried and grilled fish options, and offers a raw bar. Known for the saying, "Pacific Northwest Fresh," McGrath's Fish House prides itself on serving amazing entrees made with only fresh seafood caught locally as often as possible. The chain has been thriving since the early 1980s and aims to serve well prepared food at affordable prices.

The vast McGrath's Fish House menu is part of what makes the restaurant so appealing to the public. It includes appetizers, share sized meals, and a different menu for fried and wood fired fare. Popular dishes include hazelnut sole and halibut parmesan. McGrath's Fish House also offers a dessert menu full of classic dishes such as cream puffs and New York style cheesecake. For those who don't enjoy seafood, burgers are also available.

The crab cakes were all bread no crab!!!! even tough the waitress said they have changed their recipe to include more crab. What I got was a bread crumb patty with 2 tiny shrimp in two cakes:(.

The clam shower was outstanding, and a huge portion for the price! Husband had the captain's platter, and it was huge, half a Dungeness crab, 3 pieces of fried halibut, clam strips, scallops and fries with a delicious salad! Well worth the hour drive for seafood!!!

The service was ok and there food was ok. I ordered the steak and lobster and was disappointed. The steak was small and so was the lobster tail.

I go to McGraths because they have razor clams, but this time the razor clams were very disappointing. They were so tough that I couldn't even chew them. It will be a long time before I go back there.

McGrath’s is one of our favorite restaurants to eat at, the only issue that was a little bothersome was they were serving us our food wayyyy to quick, we were still working on the appetizer and they were bringing our salads, before we were able to start on the salad they were bringing our main course, it was so quick we almost sent it back to be held until we could at least finish the appetizer 🧐😳 But we still love McGrath’s

We had reservations for the patio. They didn't know how long it would be before it opened up. So we sat inside. Sad

Very nice experience dining on the patio. Loved the fact that I was able to make selections to help me have a low calorie, healthy dinner. We will return!

My Cajun rock fish was sub standard. You should do better than sprinkle creole seasoning on and call it Cajun. Service should be able to multitask.

Excellent service - prompt, attentive & on top of everything. Food was pretty good - my soup tasted like flour but my husband loved his coconut prawns. And we always love the mozzarella sticks - crispy, hot & melty!

Was quiet, clean, and the server was attentive. Food was good, just wish their vegetable portions had been a little larger to more balance the protein portion, also because they had excellent vegetables. Look forward to going again.

We were glad to be back but the food wasn’t the same. Clams were gritty and the crab cakes were too bready.
