I have been coming here for 8 years and have never had either a bad meal or bad service. My wife calls it "Red Lobster with attitude". I prefer it for lunch as opposed to dinner as happy hour gets a bit noisy.

I hate to leave negative reviews, but hey - we are consumers and who wants to spend hard-earned money on a less-than-stellar experience?? Not me! But I did give McGrath's 2 more chances to get it right after our first bad experience last summer....and they pretty much bombed each time. First off, I will mention that the bar and happy... More

There were 4 in our party that ate at this restaurant tonight. 3 of us had their special 5-course meal. Each course the food was terrible for all 3 of us. We eat at McGraths frequently and I normally love their garden salad that comes with the meal but even that was terrible. It was like they had some leftover... More

Went with a group of 10 for mom's birthday. One of the attendees chose to be a stinker (happens frequently). The waitress handled the situation like a pro. I even later phoned her manager to pat her on the back. My Ahi Tuna Salad was great as usual. Mom said cod was fishy but halibut was great. I won't mention... More

Geez, we've eaten here a dozen times and I can't say that I ever was impressed with the quality of the meals. However, neither can I say I was ever terribly disappointed. It's just so-so. Service can be quite nice, with helpful and enthusiastic servers.

My parents and I were there on December 21st around 7:30 pm. Our waitress took a very long time to take our drink order. She came back about 10 minutes later to take our order. We ordered an appetizer and it showed up 3 minutes before our entrees. When ordering our entrees she kept mishearing what we wanted. From what... More

The building and decor are Northwest Nautical accenting the seafood focus of the restaurant. The menu is broad with a full offering of both seafood and non-seafood entrees. The problem is with staff execution of the concept. We called ahead as they don't take reservations. Upon arrival the receptionist acknowledged that we had called ahead for our large party, but...

McGrath's is a small, family-owned Northwest seafood chain. The decor has a fishing theme, and is nicely arranged with a choice of booths or tables. Their staff is uniformed in checked shirts, and are helpful and friendly. The menu offers a wide variety of fish and shellfish at pleasant prices. McGrath's frequently advertises coupon specials for all you can eat... More

What Bonanza is to great ground beef, McGrath's does a bit better with seafood. An extensive menu which offers a great number of choices in a great number of configurations, if one orders 'sensibly' (fried shrimp is the same everywhere!) there is a very good seafood meal to be had here at a good price and seemingly reliable consistency. It... More

We've had better at McGraths - in fact we've had some pretty decent food there in the past. But this last time, we were pretty disappointed. The fish was overcooked, and had no flavor. The service was really reaaaaaallllllyyyy slow. And the furniture was torn where we were asked to sit.
