We had been by this place multiple times, and decided to go here to meet a client for Happy Hour, based on the client's recommendation. The restaurant and bar have a neat vibe, but overall we were not impressed. The Happy Hour food menu was very limited. One of the people in our party has issues with gluten. When she... More

So many places to pick from in downtown Minneapolis but we are so glad we went here. It was a Saturday night and we found that there was an hour wait without reservations but the hostess said there is open seating in the bar. Thinking that we wouldn't get in we checked and there were 2 tables open! We loved... More

The food is well prepared, and priced appropriately. Service is fine, and the ambience is good too. But it's odd. we've dined here a couple of times, and nothing really memorable stands out. I think they try hard; it's just that nothing really makes it shine.

We arrived at 6:15 for a 7:15 reservation. We just wanted to have a drink before dinner. IMPOSSIBLE..the bar was busy, but the staff was horrible. Two bartenders maybe did their best, but not acceptable. After waiting for 15 minutes to have anyone acknowledge we were alive, we left and went and had a drink at the Radison. We returned... More

My wife and I both found the quality of the food in relationship to the price absolutely fantastic. Even the steaks are a wonderful. Pros 1. Great service 2. Good selection of wines and beers 3. Portions to focus more on taste vs quantity

This was my fist time at McCormick & Shmick's. This is an upscale steak and seafood restaurant. I loved the service and the elegance of the facility. It was recommended to me to eat the Walleye fish while I was in Minneapolis and what a better place to try this fabulous fish.

went here for dinner as I have eaten at other restaurants in this chain before. We were initially seated in a booth but it was so noisy due to a party at the next table we could not hear ourselves speak so we asked to move and were given a booth in the bar area. It was 8pm at night... More

The hostess was a little stuck up, but our server was engaging and entertaining. The food was great, I loved the fact that they actually had the best mashed potatoes with no garlic snuck into them! Meal was much better than the M&S in my hometown. I don't usually go there. Great experience on NYE!

Our server - AGM Aaron - did an amazing job of making our Christmas Eve special and fun. Our food was delicious, the service was terrific and we truly enjoyed the experience. Our neighbors all know this location for the amazing Happy Hour deals and the staff's ability to handle all special occasions. McCormick & Schmick's may be a popular... More

We had 5:15 reservations on a Saturday night and had only a brief wait, which was in the service area-- a bit awkward. Seating was nice and not crowded. Did not have to shout across the table. Everyone loved his/her meal, and my flounder was great, although I had ordered the bouillabaisse, which was "out" after another table ordered 8... More

Unique to Minneapolis, the restaurant has several "snugs" (private booths for six with draperies) in the formal dining room. The handsome interior features handcrafted mahogany, stained glass (depicting Minnesota heritage), brass accents, and Tiffany-style lamps lending a traditional note to the interior.

McCormick & Schmick's also features a lively bar experience, with a bar staff that practices traditional mixology -- hand-shaken cocktails using only bottled sodas, freshly squeezed juices and premium liquors.
