McCormick & Schmick’s is a chain restaurant serving fresh seafood, steaks, poultry, and pasta. They have been around since the 1970s, and are committed to freshness. McCormick & Schmick’s is well-known for their famous happy hours, which places emphasis on their hand-crafted, blender-free cocktails, which consist of freshly squeezed juices.




Happy hours are Monday through Wednesday (4 PM through 6 PM), Thursday through Friday (4 PM through 6 PM and 9:30 PM through 11 PM), Saturdays (3 PM through 5 PM and 9:30 PM through 11 PM), and Sundays (3 PM through 5 PM).


What we love about their menu is that their food items range from $3 to $9, including such items as the seared ahi tuna, coconut shrimp, buffalo wings, ahi tuna poke, calamari, truffle fries, and hummus. It’s nice that they have such a large variety available for customers to choose from.


Their alcoholic items include domestic drafts starting at $3.50. They also offer well drinks for $4, wines and specialty cocktails for $6 dollars, and martinis (our favorite!) for $7. They have so many choices, making McCormick & Schmick’s a great option for happy hours.


 Overall Experience



Inviting, classic, and comfortable!


They had an excellent selection of food at an affordable price point. The food was eclectic and included some great seafood options. We had seared ahi and fish tacos which were huge! The seared ahi was great!


I wish the martini was chilled a bit more!


Good prices, large portions!


Our server was nice, informative and helpful.

Overall Experience



I love the decor! It was a very modern look–warm and inviting with a lot of eye-catching designs!


There was tons of food. I ordered the fish tacos and ahi poke (both gluten free) and they were very tasty. The tacos usually come fried but due to my allergy, they made them gluten free. The fish was a bit rubbery but still tasted good. The tacos were huge!


I tried really hard to only order from the happy hour menu. I got a gin martini which was a classic, nothing too special.


Very good. Great value for the amount of food and the tasty, fresh selections that were offered.

Our server Mackenzie was very attentive and knew the menu well. She was polite, friendly, and we never had to ask for anything. Top-notch service!



Final thoughts: McCormick & Schmick’s has a fantastic happy hour. Something that might add an extra touch and enhance the atmosphere would be some music. Overall though, we were pleased by the great portions, delicious food, and decent prices!
