The best thing of this restaurant is that is really well located and if you stay in Biltmore hotel it is accessible from the hotel hall. The food is normal but the staff wasn't so kindly with us.

Our great meal here: Beavertail Oysters, Seared Sea Scallops, Signature Herb-Crusted Snapper, and a bottle of Pine Ridge white, convinced us, once and for all, that this chain does a better job with seafood than Legal Seafood. A larger assortment of oysters would be our...More

Excellent food and service. A quiet place in busy Providence restaurant scene during midweek at lunch time. Perfect business meal without the noise of other local places. Attentive staff and management.

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. Since that time, the company has expanded to more than 80 restaurants across the country. 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.
