    This was a meeting of long time friends who had not seen each other in too long. The service staff picked up on our wanting to visit and allowed us time uninterrupted yet kept a close eye on servicing our table. We started out with the combinatin Seafood appetizer and a bottle of Pinot Gris wine. All six of us ordered seafood entrees that were delicious. My husband and I chose Mc Graths because we have experienced this good food and sevice two other times in the past 2 months.

    Great place in general but food was overcooked badly. Salmon was bad, not only overcooked but looks like warmed up and pre-cooked day ago maybe? Steamed broccoli was brown not green.. BUT service was great! My server took care of the bad food immediately by removing it from the bill! Drinks selection is very good there.

    They need help at the front desk. We were kept standing there for 10 minutes with no attention paid to us and we had reservations. The place was not busy. Finally the hostess showed up and said she’d check to see if our table was ready! There were many empty tables. Otherwise the experience was quite good.

    Our party of 3 was seated immediately. I had just made reservations for 6pm. I took a lot home with me and ate most of it there. I loved everything we ordered. The BEST pan-fried oysters! Prices are a bit high, but what luxury isn't? The prices are comparable to their competition.

    It was 6:15 upon arrival and although 15 minutes early, they sat us quickly anda booth. I’m a clean freak and notice everything good, bad, ugly. The hosts were welcoming. Our waitress was very nice and efficient but seemed busy. The restaurant was not packed and there were lots of empty tables and ample staff. Where we were seated, the carpet under our table was dirty with crumbs and empty straw wrappers. I dropped my phone accidentally and when my head was down grabbing my phone it’s obvious the benches in the booths have not been pulled out and cleaned regularly, It was gross. Management if you don’t have enough staff you can contract out for these semi monthly deep cleanings. Our clam chowder was delicious and salads were crispy and fresh. Cherry tomatoes were firm and delicious. Bread came out 30 minutes after our arrival and about 10 minutes before our entrees. We finally got our oysters on the half shell. These were $3.50 a piece and EXTREMELY SMALL like the size of a quarter (not exaggerating) and you have to order 1/2 dozen minimum for the 1/2 shell. We both ordered the Seafood Astoria entree -$25.99. “Grilled Fish topped with Crab, Petite Prawns and Mushrooms in a White Wine Cream Sauce.” My critique was that the sauce was seriously “milked or watered down” as it was not the consistency I KNOW it usually is because tonight the sauce was lacking the true flavor and watery. The mushroom were shrunken down, the crab topping was naked to the eye, the shrimps were a little tough and over cooked. I was disappointed because it didn’t taste fresh. The season veggies were all fresh however. They ran out of baked potatoes so the gal gave me other options. I don’t care for your pilaf so I got mashed potatoes as a substitute and they were ok, I ate 1/4 of my serving. Overall I wish it was a better experience because it upsets me when my foods not served as expected. We didn’t want to bother our waitress because it’s not her fault but management needs to know.

    Okay for a seafood restaurant - maybe a 6/7 out of 10. Hubs said pan fried oysters tasted like zucchini, probably too much fry batter. Attentive waitress. Slow service, but it was a holiday. We made our reservation 2 months in advance. Poke bowl was okay. Lobster roll was good. Teriyaki vegetable rice bowl (no chicken) was fine. Shrimp Louie salad good.

    The food was great and so was the service BUT we waited 40 minutes before anyone helped our table! However, once this issue of neglect was addressed the waitress was great and the manager made amends with some dining bonuses.

    We are repeat diners at McGrath’s. We have never been disappointed. The menu offers a variety of appealing choices. The food is delicious and reasonable. The service is great from the host(ess) when we enter to the server and anyone else we see. Everyone is friendly and professional. We like the convenience of reservations and the option of patio seating.

    Sadly, McGrath's Fish House is not the dining experience that it used to be. Service is no longer friendly and prompt. I'd put the food, service, and experience at the 50% to 60% level. I'm guessing the restaurant is intentionally under-staffed (for financial reasons). Morale seems at half-staff (understandably).

    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.

    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.
