The food was very good, in fact it seems to have improved lately. Seating was handled well. The waitress Madison was very helpful and attentive.
This was our second time at McGrath's and we were not disappointed. Seafood nicely cook, wait staff attentive, as delicious as the first time we went.
Love it. Great food
The Dungeness crab legs were why we went to this restaurant, but they're very obviously previously frozen and that was a huge disappointment in taste. I had the Seafood Astoria and it was a strange piece of white fish that was previously breaded, but then topped with this mash of supposedly fresh Dungeness crab and mushrooms in a cream sauce. The fish breading was rubbery. We met a relative here visiting from out of state, who wanted PNW seafood, so we looked up places serving Dungeness crab legs and ended up here. If we would have looked at the reviews of this location, we would have realized they weren't that great. When we left, their huge green dumpsters had been moved to the middle of the parking lot, almost directly behind two other cars, and they completely blocked the entrance that we came in. We were able to drive out the other entrance/exit, but it was just strange that they were completely blocking the parking lot entry, and it was 9pm, so not exactly garbage pickup time.
We really love this place. Good food good price. Only hiccup we had was our server kinda messed up the bill but she took care of it.
The Staff was outstanding and very attentive. We stayed to visit and it was not an issue with staff for the length of time we were there. I service was prompt and cheerful. I have eaten there several times and will continue to do so.
We had an excellent dining experience all the way around. The food and service is always really good. The social distancing was good also.
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:(.
Service was great, food was excellent. It was a little cold in the restaurant.
Fish and chips with chowder was very good. We were the only ones outside which we enjoyed.
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.
Great dinner experience and the food was fantastic
Great! Walked in, found the reservation, walked us to our table. The food was delicious.
Recommend reserving ahead during these times.
Reliable place for a dinner that won't break the bank. Appreciate their focus on local seafood.
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
The server was awesome and extremely friendly. Great service and timely! Love McGrath’s and I’ve been coming here since I was a kid.
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!
Excellent COVID protocol, tables were spaced out, good food good value.
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.
As usual excellent service, excellent food and a nice atmosphere to eat a meal in.
Our regular Friday night place
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!
Fantastic meal and service. We will be back. Thank you.
We were in Vancouver for two nights and wanted some seafood. The food was excellent and the service was excellent.
As expected the menu is limited by Covid. Excellent job on social distancing. Food is very good and service was excellent.
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.
It was a quite dinner. The food was tasty and good. The waiter was courteous and was helpful with the menu choices. We were seated immediately upon arrival.
Had a great time . Was nice to get out . With all the restaurants have to do it was fun.
Everything and everyone were outstanding. Really enjoyed the patio dining. Great place. Will be back again.
Excellent and friendly people through the entire visit. Food was delivered fast and exactly how we asked for it. Highly recommend visiting this location as the entire staff is super.
