Best seafood best prices best service – Went for my daughter's birthday. We all agreed...best seafood for the price anywhere and beat out all of the more expensive restaurants for quality of food and service! We all had crab entrees, including steak, and 3 appetizers plus two desserts and a mixed drink...total was $82 for 3 people after $5 coupon applied. Could not believe what a great deal this restaurant is and well-kept secret! Waitress even helped with cracking open the crab legs!!! Will never go to Red Lobster again!
Birthday / Event – My wife and I had lobster last night celebrating my birthday. We have been to Mcgraths for the past three years on birthdays, anniversary etc. We ordered the lobster tail from the fall festival special, which the price was five dollars cheaper then the regular price. The salad was good, the potato was cool with sour cream only. This is not what we ordered, the lobster had no flavor, it was rubbery and it was the same for both dinners. I had to tell a few co-workers that was wanting to go, to reconsider.
Bad Experience – A friend and I ate at Mcgrath's Fish House. We ordered fish that was floating in gobs of butter. My friend would
not let me send food back. We ate and left. 2 hours later at my hotel, I had diarear for several hours. The food was supposed to be fresh. It was really disgusting.
I contacted manager at restaurant. He said he would call me back but never did. Beware!!
I would never eat at this restaurant again.
Tastes like frozen grocery store seafood – I was very disappointed in this place. The seafood was comparable to frozen food you could find at a grocery store but yet the prices were ranged between 15-25 for a main course. I would not go back here again even though it's only 5 minutes from my house. I'd rather drive 45 minutes to Phoenix and visit Pappadeaux's.
We LOVED it!. – McGrath's is pretty expensive by my standards but I stil plan to go back. I thought it was great and my bf really enjoyed his meal as well. I don't normally like seafood and frequently order fried fish in order to avoid getting something that is too strongly fishy for me but I didn't wus out this time. I got pecan encrusted sole and just loved it.
First time – The service was friendly and helpful with picking out something. She knew what she liked which helps with explaining the menu. The vegetables were my favorite part of this meal. They were delicious and not salted or buttered, but had a flavor of seasonings that made them perfect. The fish was grilled and bland. Just an average restaurant.
A Perfect Sunday Afternoon – It had been a few years since going to this resturaunt. My last experience just wasn't all that great. Well yesterday they completely redeemed themselves. Service was above and beyond perfect. The drinks were wonderful, the food was fresh and tasty. I enjoy good food as long as the package is complete with service also. This was a complete full package. Highly recommend this place.
Don't bother... – Had eaten here several times before 2007, better than average seafood at least by AZ standards. Last time in 2007, my mother had a big family gathering and the food was completely awful. Our party would have been happier eating Long John's Silver for the same price. Never again. Makes Red Lobster look like a 5 star.
Above average meals and atmosphere – This restaurant is more of a home cooked seafood restaurant. Nothing flashy, not big on sauces, just good quality, fresh fish, McGrath's has great maritime decorations, and adequate service. They don't have a specific item they're known for. Portions are kind of small, but overall it is a good dining experience.
Editorial Review by Marlene Montanez – Appetites are welcome at this seafood restaurant favorite where there are big portions and a casual vibe.
