WORST RESTAURANT IN THE FACE OF THE EARTH – IM SO HAPPY THAT THIS PLACE FINALLY CLOSE DOWN, IN ARCADIA. WAS JUST TAKING ROOM, THEY ARE NO COMPETITION WHATSOEVER TO WOOD RANCH, DAVE BUSTERS AND CHEESECAKE FACOTRY, S#$@ EVEN MCDONALDS. tHIS PLACE WAS THE WORST OF THE WORST. I KNOW THE SECRETS TO THIS PLACE AND THE TRUE REASON WHY IT CLOSE DOWN. WORSTS FOOD, INF$#@$# %$#, IMMIGRANT EMPLOYERS, COOKS HAVING S#@ WITH WAITRESSES IN REFRIGERATOR, BAD MANAGEMENT HINT MIKE JOHNSON AND THE REST OF THE STAFF. THAT WORTHLESS BUM MIKE JOHNSON. THIS PLACE FELL APART BECAUSE THEY BACKSTAB THE BEST WORKER THEY HAD, THE FUTURE. NOW IM MAKING THE MONEY SOMEWHERE ELSE, TO ALL YOU CUSTOMERS DONT EVER WALK INTO A MCGRATHS RESTAURANT, YOUR FOOD GETS DROP IN THE FLOOR TRUST ME i KNOW I WAS THERE. AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COST. THANK YOU
Great alternative to Mcormicks and shmucks – I been coming here since it opened. The seafood is consistantly good. They always have great specially prepared dishes. The only problem with that is you can only get the special prepared that way, for example I took some family there and they wanted one of the specials copper river salmon, but they wanted it grilled, they said they were pre-prepared so they couldnt do it. But they really enjoyed the salmon they did get, alderplank which was made on an alderplank wood bed picking up the smokey flavor. It was great! The sides were not all that great.
I am hopping they improve in some areas but it is nice to have an alternative to the snooty mcormicks and shmucks (yes I know its shmicks, but they treat you like you are a shmuck for being there)
Oyster bar?? – I was looking forward to dining here since it touts an oyster bar. The oysters were the the smallest bits I've ever seen in a shell anywhere. Bit gritty too that didn't help much. The food (bbq salmon, fish w/ chips) was mediocre. Decor was nice with the seaman theme. Waiter was odd. He was young yet addressed us so formally and didn't have much of a sense of humor. Come on buddy....it's an "oyster bar" Don't think I'll be going back to this one. Too many other places out there.
Above average seafood – My friend and I shared an appetizer of calamari, which was a bigger portion than we expected! However, it was delicious. I ordered the crabcakes for the entree and found it just mediocre. The server was delightful and made the visit much more enjoyable. The prices are a little pricey, but I do think it is worth to dine at once in awhile.
