The food was good, when we got what we ordered and when it finally arrived. I would have rather of gone somewhere else, b/c there was no organization or help for the people workin...

Extremely disappointed 8/23/2009

My wife and I went there because we had a discount coupon from an event we attended. The place looked nice and we thought we would be in for a great evening. My wife was debating between the clams and the lobster ravioli. The waiter suggested the clams (apparently more expensive than the ravioli). When her meal came, we were shocked at the paucity of clams. if there were 10, I would be surprised. I raised this with the waiter who offered to get her more. My wife demurely declined. He then offered her another glass of wine. We expected that it was complimentary given our complaint about the clams. It wasn't. The clams also were not very good. \r \r As for my meal, the ""Haddock Chatham, Mass."", it tasted fine but it was lacking the lobster stuffing that was supposed to accompany it. \r \r I loved my clam chowder. My wife, on the other hand, was a bit uneasy. If you go, make sure you ask if they checked to make sure the clam shells are removed. They are not a good substitute for the lack of clams in the chowder Pros: Waiter was very pleasant Cons: Overpriced food in relationship to quantity more

Horrible Service-Never going there again! 3/11/2009

My boyfriend and I came for a quick dinner. We waited for 55 min. after we ordered; and we only ordered 1 burger, buffalo wings, and a shrimp cocktail. While we there, these guys sat down to a dirty table even after we put in our order. So the waitress had time to clean their table and then they got their table full of food and were enjoying it for a good 20 min before we got so upset that we asked the waitress, and her answer was that they ordered ""medium"" burgers, while ours was med. well, we waited for another 5 min, and they food still didn't come, so then i asked her if we could just pay for our drinks, and she just walked away, no apology said., she didn't even get us our bill, grrrr......that really made me angry! so we had to leave our money on the table, I understand that sometimes restaurants mess up orders, but if the waitress had said sorry or explained to us why we waited so long, i wouldn't be so angry, I'm neva goin back there again! Pros: Cheap food during happy hour, but NOT Worth It! Cons: Extremely Rude Servers! Very, Very long wait! more

Better Than Expected 11/7/2008

I stumbled into McCormicks by accident and really didn't expect very much, but the food is excellent, the tables are comfortable, the service was great and the price was fair. I really liked their blackened swordfish, which is really fresh with a great flavor. All of their shellfish is great and in a good sauce or broth. There are many different excellent fish dishes and they have great specials when certain fish is more seasonal. And the kitchen was flexible about prepping my dish to my specific taste. I have also been there for the happy hour specials which are an amazingly great deal. A large burger which was great, was only $1.95. My only complaint is I wish they didn.t play jazz music in the dining area. Although it's not too loud so it's not a big deal. Overall I say the food is really outstanding and it's a fun atmosphere. Pros: Great Quality, Friendly Chefs, Fun Atmosphere more

cheap happy-hour food items 4/12/2008

usually go for happy hour. they have a good selection of dirt cheap food on happy hour menu which you can order before... 5:30pm i think?\r \r however the drinks are kinda on the pricey side (around $12+ for cocktails). well they have to balance their check books too you know.\r :) \r Pros: dirt cheap happy-hour food items Cons: pricey cocktails more

Avoid during the weekend.... 10/7/2007

Surprisingly unimpressive 11/14/2006

I was pretty disappointed by the food. Many of my friends love it there and I finally went after 4yrs about hearing how great the food was. Maybe I ordered the wrong dishes, but everything was very bland and dry. I should have gotten a regular lobster, you can't really go wrong with that. Maybe I should have only gone for happy like one of the reviews stated. Pros: Decent Service, Garage parking Cons: Food, Too Loud more

Sunday Family Dinner 3/21/2006

The restaurant is pretty good and acceptable. We went with family and were four adults only. The servicer was friendly and amicable. The menu offering is larger than say a Legal's. Appetizers - the mussels and RI quahogs were a bit spicy. The chowder was fine. The broiled seafood platter was delicious and the traditional atlantic cod was great. The only thing too sour was the linguine with clam sauce - too much lemon juice. The desserts looked delicious, but we did not have any of them. The great thing about this place are the ""Snugs"". These are private booths that fit about six people. They provide privacy and separate your party from the main dining floor. However, you must make a reservation to get one of them or ask ahead of time. We enjoyed the privacy and sophistication of this unique restaurant feature. Pros: "Snugs", Larger menu offerings Cons: Linguine with clams, Parking more

From A Server's Perspective 2/4/2006

I really wanted to like this place. I work in the business and am always looking for places that offer quality product, service and good value. Unfortunately none of those attributes are found here. The food was only mediocre, overpriced and the service was definetly substandard. While dining at the bar on a relatively quiet Saturday afternoon I watched a ""trained professional"" do some unsavory things with the very same hands he used to make drinks and serve food. Not once in the time I was there did he bother to wash those hands. Instead he continually wiped them on the front of his too-small white jacket and blithely continue on his way. Pros: nice decor Cons: mediocre food, poorly trained staff more

only go for happy hour 10/10/2005

the $1.95 happy hour menu is fabulous, you get great portions for little money and its really good. The problem starts when you sit in the dinning room. The regular menu is rediculously overpriced. the food on the $1.95 menu is better! I cant believe I paid $100 for me and my girlfriend when i could have gone to Mcdonalds and got better service and food.Also they have about fifty seafood items at the top of the menu that you cant order, its jsut shows you the seafood they have. how confusing. Pros: happy hour Cons: everything else more

Terrible 4/30/2004

We made a reservation at M&S a week in advance for 7:30PM at the M&S in Fanuile hall we arrived at 7:15PM and advised the staff we were here. He told me we would be seated shortly. My wife and I waited till 7:40 and approached a different gentlemen at the front. He checked my name again and told me ""momentarily sir"". At this time we heard others complaining, we were patient and finally at 8:15PM we left. This could coincide with an attempt at the week before attempting to get a drink or bite to eat for lunch at the same location. This time we were in the bar area and we sat a table we sat for 10 minutes, no one ever approached us I for one will never go back. We live in Boston there are to many good restaurants to ever deal with this nonsense again. Cons: , rez/does not matter, crowded more

average seafood for large prices 12/25/2003

My girlfriend and I ate here for Christmas dinner; and while we were expecting top notch service, quality and ambiance, the results were slightly under par for what we paid. The food itself was quite good; however we could have gotten an equally amazing meal at compariable highend resturant. While I recommend this place for its fresh catch, I believe that in this town you can get equal or better quality at cheaper prices. I would try out other resturants before going back to this one. Pros: fresh catch, informative service Cons: eh ambiance, overpriced more

For Seafood lovers 3/17/2003

The seafood was the freshest I have ever had. The fried calamari melted in my mouth - it wasn't rubbery at all, like it usually is at other restaurants. The main meals are a little on the expensive side but unlike other fancy restaurants that charge a lot, you actually get 2 nice size side dishes along with your fish of choice. The only problem I had was that it was very loud and the women's bathroom was not as clean as it could be. I would definately go back again. Pros: Freshest Fish, Variety, Ambiance Cons: Loud, Better bathrooms, A little pricey more

hello, can someone help me? 10/3/2002

I sat down at the bar and waited ten minutes before anyone noticed I was there. I ordered. a drink and dinner. fifteen minutes later, my food shows up and my bartender then realizes, oh, I had ordered a drink, too. Unconcerned, she carried on with her socializing as I have observed her doing from the moment I sat down trying to get her attention. For the first time ever, I wanted to just walk out. The moral of this story: Just don't walk in! Cons: Terrible service more

Crab Cakes, Quesadillas and Cake - Oh My 7/6/2002

My father and I recently dined at McCormick and Schmick's to mixed feelings. We were extremely pleased with our drinks and appetizers, including a scrumptuous Mexican blue crab cake and wonderful shrimp quesadilla. My dad's shrimp was over-fried, and my salmon steak - which I've never ordered - was OK, but a little disturbing with the unexpected little bones. Now, our server was very knowledgable about the food, (including my red sockeye salmon from the Chignik River in Alaska), and we enjoyed our dessert very much. I had Jake's Famous Truffle Cake, a flour-less cake, that was a chocolate lover's dream. Wow! We had a nice time, but my ratings are a little low because our main dishes missed the mark, it was a little loud, and our booth, unlike all the other linen clad tables, had paper placemats - at a fancy place like this. Pros: Dessert Cons: Paper placemats more

Very Disappointing 6/27/2002

I have eaten at M&S in LA and SF and know what to expect. However, on to different occasions I have been very disappointed with them. Just this past Tuesday (06/25) I had drinks at the bar and dinner outside in the cafe. The bartender(s) weren't very busy and the 4 of us had to ask for a drink after sittting there for 15 minutes; the hostess that sat us a terrible attitude and the waitress tried to be nice but was inexperienced. The appetizers (5) were average in taste and the entrees (4) were either overcooked or burnt and not seasoned at all. Pros: Nice Location, Nice Outdoor Cafe Cons: Parking $$$, Terrible Value more
