Seafood
The history of McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurants began when Bill McCormick purchased Jake's Famous Crawfish Restaurant located in Portland, Oregon, and brought the more than 100-year-old landmark back to life. When asked the secret of how he revitalized a restaurant on the brink of closing, McCormick says, "I like nothing better than being a good host." Part of the managerial talent McCormick tapped was Doug Schmick, a management trainee. The two formed a partnership in 1974, creating Traditional Concepts, a precursor to today's McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurants. In 1979, they opened the original McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurant in Portland, Oregon. The combination of an open imagination and a respect for tradition are what makes McCormick & Schmick's the classic and successful business that it is today.

    Love the food... Service was great, food is great. Desserts are awesome as well. Enjoyed the brighter light coming in as a result of the big windows... didn't feel like I was in a cave like many downtown restaurants feel like because they are tucked behind walls in buildings.

    We had a lovely surprise birthday dinner and had amazing service from Courtney. All of our seafood dishes and sides were delicious. I would highly recommend the seared ahi-tuna (the cucumber salad was especially good) and the crab cake was ALL crab, no other filler letting the sweet crabmeat take centre stage. The Caesar salads were delicious and, if you say yes to anchovies u get several draped over the greens. The shrimp were plump and moist. The only negative was the steaks, which despite being cooked perfectly, were disappointing. I’d love to see a pasta dish added to the menu (though the Mac n cheese side was really delicious …as were the brussel sprouts), and the tacos not limited to the lunch menu. I’d like to try several other items on the menu….next time!

    the turkey was the saltiest turkey i have tasted, there was no gravy on the mash potatoes and the stuffing wasn't too tasty. the only thing I enjoyed was the salad. Won't be back again, this was the second bad experience, the first was veterans day when i asked to speak to the manager about that awful fish dinner. He assured me that he would be there Thanksgiving day and personally see to our meal. He never showed up.

    We came to have a really nice experience for Thanksgiving. We did and then some! The butternut squash soup was so tasty and the salad was delicious as well. The dinner had all the sides we loved. The beans were a little too al dented, bur the seasoning had great flavor. This may just become our annual tradition!

    Don’t mind spending money on quality food, price was high for what we got. Blah mashed potatoes, gross broccolini and I got the ahi tuna- was suppose to be lightly seared - it was ice cold, like they took it right out of the refrigerator. Husband got the Chilean bass stuffed with crab, had hardly any crab at all. Blah flavoring on everything. Super friendly waitress- Shout out to her.

    McCormick & Schmick's has the best seafood in town - period. My wife and I had dinner there during light-up night in Pittsburgh, and as usual, we were very happy with our experience. The food was great, service even better, and the M&S Long Island Iced Tea is the best.

    Shrimp did not taste fresh in my seafood pasta dish, tasted as if it was frozen and reheated. Ruined the dish. Wife's pesto pasta dish was excellent.

    We were so excited to have the family together again after being apart for several months. We were meeting for dinner before a show & told our waitress this. We had hoped to have good service but barely made it to the show on time. We had a difficult time finding her & even getting our drinks. Half of us had seafood & it was not fresh. In fact the tuna made my son-in-law & daughter very physically ill. We were very disappointed and will not be going back.

    the beer battered cod was horrible. The chef poured what appeared to be little pieces of batter all over the plate and the cod tasted bad, it was not a fresh looking pieces of fish, which by the way you could barely find with so much batter.

    Wanted to try it since a couple of friends said the food was good. I went because of the Veteran’s Day special. I felt that the portion sizes were very small. I do not feel that it was price was justifiable. Of the four meals purchased, only one was really delicious and worth its price. Two were okay. One was on the do not order from there list. The service and ambiance was outstanding.

    My Filet came out under cooked and then over cooked after sending back. Everything else was good. The manager did remove the steak from our bill without us saying anything which was nice. The last time I dined here the filet was amazing. I was hoping for the same experience but at least the manager made it right.

    Place was good. Food was tasty however steak was not cooked to order. Asked for medium and got medium well at best. Steak was still tasty. Did not return based on how long it took to get the steak in the first place. Food was good though. Clam chowder was excellent.

    I got the shrimp and crab stuffed salmon, and my husband ordered the 6 oz. filet. Both were prepared to perfection. I also enjoyed the Prosecco Sangria, and we split a lava cake with ice cream for dessert. Kathleen was attentive, knowledgeable, and professional. We enjoyed having her as our server.
