Review №1

The food was outstanding. We had great service. our waitress did a outstanding job. The steak and crab were so yummy.

Review №2

Good food and service. Seats were six feet apart and wait staff had masks. Tables marked if they were clean. My son loved his kids mc and cheese. I didn't realize until later I was charged more for the kids meal than was written on the kids menu. So be aware and check prices.

Review №3

This place is the one I like best. I visit many restaurants but to this place I go the most. The crew is very friendly and the food they offer is so good. I never miss an opportunity to have a nice dinner in this place. Highly recommended.

Review №4

We preordered our takeout Thanksgiving dinner and and it was wonderful. Portions were generous, the quality exceeded our expectations, and it tasted homemade.

Review №5

We had dinner reservations for my husbands birthday and once our waiter Winston took our order we never saw him again. We ordered drinks and he did not come back to ask if we wanted to order another. We told him it was a birthday dinner but it was never acknowledged, however he stood six feet away from our table singing Happy Birthday to that table and then proceeded to stay and talk personal stuff for ten minutes. We were never asked if our food was satisfactory and we even had to ask another waiter to find him when we wanted to check out. Clearly this waiter needs some lessons on how to take care of customers. He made a birthday dinner occasion less than enjoyable

My daughter wanted to treat us and called to place the order from Colorado. My granddaughters and I were really looking forward to this meal after we checked out the menu. We were staying at the Clarion about 3 miles away and had delivery via door dash. Food was cold upon delivery. No napkins or plastic ware, or salt and pepper were the bag. The little one had fish and chips but there were no chips. There was a cup of pasta so I assumed that was the replacement. The other grand had steak and prawns and the steak was burnt. I had the seafood platter. The food was bland, soggy, all tasted the same. After I found the third black hair in my plate I stopped eating. Maybe it was an off night but we were seriously disappointed

Review №7

The service was good . Our server was friendly and prompt. The fish in the fish and chips orders was just not so good. Nice atmosphere. Will give it another try because it's normally very good.

Review №8

The food was good,but they are not serving the same good bread or the same amount anymore. It would be more sanitary if they used paper placemats on the tables so you don't have to put your silverware on the bare table. YUK! Also had to ask for plates for our bread. Brought the bread & nothing to put it on. Doesn't make you want to go back soon!!!

Review №9

I understand that with Covid service is limited. I don't feel that is an excuse for horrible table service. We had a 7:30pm reservation and were seated more than 10 minutes late after people who just walked in with no reservations were seated before us. Our waiter was terrible and only showed his face a total of three times. Once to take our order, to deliver the soup and salads and then to give us our bill after we had to ask another waiter to grab it for us. He seemed very attentive to another table and I know it wasn't because he was too busy. There were plenty of wait staff running around and the restaurant was not at capacity. We felt completely abandoned by our waiter. The food was good, just slow to come out.

Review №10

Called ahead & was told it was very slow so no waiting. When we got there, the wait was over an hour! Theey should have expected this on veterans day when they had a special for vets. Ruined my husband's day by not being prepared & able to accommodate those dining out. Went somewhere else so hubby didnt get his fish

Review №11

If I had the option I'd give McGraths zero stars. I took my family to dinner tonight they've never been there before and we were celebrating our daughter's graduation celebration. We had this lady take our order and we never saw her again. We then get this guy waiter who brings us our food and then he disappeares forever. We couldn't get service at this place. My food order was messed up, just an overall crappie experience. They did nothing to accommodate our bad experience only offered a sorry about that. We will never ever go back to that place again, and we'll definitely never refer anyone to go there.

Review №12

Nice fresh fish taco with Oregon caught wild cod. Amazing herb crusted salmon salad. Huge! Friendly service, would recommend.

Review №13

Went here tonight, Valentine's day, and it was great. Wonderful high energy staff who loved their job. Delicious food and wonderful drink specials for the holidays. Prices were the best around. Very happy and satisfied. My girlfriend and I will definitely be back in the future. I wish we would have discovered this place sooner.Brittany was our server and I highly recommend her.

Review №14

Fresh seafood crisp salad can't beat it can't wait for Monday lunch special captain dish.enjoy.jolly o mate.

Review №15

Very nice place with quality food and reasonably priced

Review №16

Good to see you back! Loved my Codfather sandwich and shrimp salad. Service was good. Hope to be back soon.

Review №17

Food was excellent, the staff bent of backwards to make sure we had the best service. Absolutely will come back here

Review №18

Fried Seafood dinner for my wife and I. Class half burned Halibut prans and scallops half raw. Very dissatisfied with this trip. They were not even busy.

Review №19

Always great. They have fresh caught seafood as well as standard seafood fare. Try the Mozzarella Sticks! Hand breaded and always awesome!

Review №20

My date seemed to enjoy the seafood. Wasnt impressed with the tiny burger they gave but that's what you get when you order plain food at a seafood place. Will go fishing there again

Review №21

Had a delicious dinner with my daughter in law. Food is always top notch. Very nice server, Brian. Our whole family likes McGrath's

Review №22

Great staff great food great service definitely recommend

Review №23

In COVID-19 days, McGrath is still a pleasant dining experience. Their steamers are fabulous. Sourdough bread made in house is a great accompaniment to the clam chowder and stuffed mushrooms are a must.

Review №24

My wife made reservations for Valentine's dinner. Appetizers tasted good but were on the cold side and we were not given any utensils to eat them with. Waitress went MIA for about 45 minutes so we had to ask other wait staff for something to drink. We finally got our food and my wife's lobster tail was flat, rubbery, and over seasoned. My fish was barely warm. They were apologetic for their service and comped our dinner without asking so they were fully aware of their downfall. I would of rather paid for decent service and hot food. Especially on Valentine's day. This was our first time eating at this establishment and our last.

Review №25

Great service and food at reasonable prices

Review №26

Nice as always. Great staff. Definitely get the fish n chips.

Review №27

The food was great and the service even better

Review №28

Im not a fan of seafood, so I got a club sandwich. It was delicious. Great food and great service.

Review №29

Good sea food cooked well and served beautifully.

Review №30

Awesome food, cooked to perfection! Need to go more often.

Review №31

Excellent food. Little bit of slow service.

Review №32

Seafood is nasty, dont eat it.

Review №33

Dunguness crab was excellent. Great service by our waitress.

Review №34

Ones every few months I'm driver for my best friends here, The Odd Fellows FRIENDS. They love to visit this PLACE. Fish is amazing One of my best memory to visit this place, get excellent fish plate and on top "MARIONBERRY COBBLER with VANILLA ICE CREAM"P.S if you skip MBwVIC you missed the point. LoL

Review №35

We had a really nice Sunday lunch here. It was clean and fairly quiet. Service was a touch slow but our server was friendly. We will definitely visit again.

Review №36

We are going here tonight for dinner. Their food is very good. Wally and I usually share a meal and walk away full! They have great seafood with their salmon being the best! One of our favorite but try to sit in the bar. The service is better and quicker there!!!

Review №37

Delicous. Salmon... But the prices...bruh. If I wanted to spend my life savings, I'd spend it on a house. Not a meal at mcgraths.

Review №38

Bar service is always attentive. Food is what you'd expect to find and is pretty good. Seafood has always been solid! Clams are excellent as is the sesame chicken . Love everything about this place with the exception that frequently they don't clean their taps. Often, the beer or the glass just tastes terrible. Bartender always offers something else - appreciate the willingness to serve but would love to get a decent pint here.

Review №39

I consider McGrath's a decent neighborhood eatery. Service can be spotty at the McGrath's in Milwaukie, OR. Food is normally good, though. Value is pretty good as well, since the menu includes choices with a variety of price points. This McGrath's seems to be most popular with families and seniors.

Review №40

Great seafood restaurant has many seasonal seafood specials like salmon and steelhead

Review №41

Pretty good food. Fish and chips was very nice. The atmosphere is more for older people (think, grandparents) which we noticed since we were by far the youngest people in there!

Review №42

Sometimes you have a hankering for old-fashioned fried seafood platters and clam chowder. This is the place. It's not expensive and the service was good.

Review №43

Loved the seating overlooking the duck pond.The waiter was was a little slow at first but came around quickly and did a great job.We both loved the chowder it was perfect!The prawns, crab legs, Halibut were cooked to perfection.Couple bummers my baked potato was so cold I could stick my finger in the center, the walnut pear with blue cheese tasted like sour cream dressing, when he asked me if I wanted to take it I declined explaining why, I was a little surprised he didn't take it off the bill, but all in all I was very happy with the meal we had a nice evening, would defiantly go back.

Review №44

Great place with good food and pricing,would highly reccomend!

Review №45

I truly enjoyed the experience, atmosphere, staff and amazing food. Would definitely go back!

Review №46

Very good menu, fresh seafood, great service

Review №47

I love this place. Service is always excellent. A shout to Amber & David at the bar. Food is always hot and tasty. This is my new go to spot for sure...

Review №48

The place is great and roomy, the food was yummy and the rates were very economical. rapidly, productive service and very personal staff members. Highly recommended.

Review №49

I had lobster it was so good

Review №50

Great service and yummy food. Dine-in with social distancing.

Review №51

Today we decided to have lunch at the Milwaukie McGrath's Fish House! We decided to order fish and chips! Instead of fries, we asked for the red potatoes! The salad was good but could have had a bit more salad dressing! We had to ask for bread which was so hard, we were afraid of breaking our teeth! Then the plate of half cod and half halibut arrived! The fish pieces were extremely small and way over cooked! The “tarter sauce” was awful! Instead of tarter sauce, it was a bubbly dill, vinegar biter tasting dip! The service was very, very slow, even though there were few others present at our dining hour of around 2:00 p.m.! We've decided we won't go for eats at this particular place again! We have found McGrath's isn't as good as we remember it to be over the past few years! What a total disappointment!

Review №52

Unneccessary long wait to be seated in a nearly empty restaurant. My wife ordered the fried clams and they were good. I ordered the combination plate. It took over 40 minutes to get our food, the clams were fine, but my combo plate was hardly even room temperature

Review №53

I've been coming here since I was a kid but haven't been back in awhile. Went last night and it was very good. Not too many seafood spots anymore this one always has good food and a friendly atmosphere. I will be back more often.

Review №54

McGraths Fish House is awesome, the food is always correctly cooked, always tastes great and the servers are always friendly! If you don't want to drive all the way to Gresham to find Red Lobster this is the place to go!The food here seriously rocks, great selection and a great price! What more could you want??? This is the place to go for excellent fresh seafood!!!

Review №55

First time here and probably my last. If I want seafood and steak, I'm going to Saltys.The snow crab and lobster were extremely salty! Food portion was a nice size, price wasn't bad I just really didn't enjoy my food.

Review №56

Great halibut parmesan

Review №57

The menu and prices are not the best in the world. The top sirloin is very small (three inches square) and a rip off. I would not recommend the place.

Review №58

When my girlfriend and I arrived, I thought it was a pleasant restaurant. We were seated and it was a quiet night. Met our server, waited 20-25 minutes for fish and chips, mine was on the cold side. Asked for cocktail sauce which arrived 10 minutes later. Would I think worth it, not really.

Review №59

Happy hour menu is the best I've ever seen... Everything from a bay shrimp cocktail to seared Ahi to crab stuffed mushroom caps! Delicious food and impeccable service

Review №60

Steak was great for the price. Baked potato had real bacon chunks in it, which is a huge plus. I got snow crab with my order. Great portion but was a little too salty for a crab that's supposed to be sweet. Service was good, except for the beginning. The waitress had an attitude like we were just young people going cheap and wouldn't tip well. As soon as we ordered our meals and appetizers she seemed to switch moods quickly. Realizing we didnt really care about price she seemed to be very attentive to our table. All in all I may come back here. I enjoyed my meal for the most part but my S/O wasnt as impressed. Still gets 4 stars for price, quality and quantity.

Review №61

A little overpriced, but well worth the time and money.

Review №62

The seafood is fresh and delicious, the service is fast and the prices are fair!

Review №63

Love the choice of seafood meals. Don't have seafood restaurants close by.

Review №64

Great restaurant serving delicious shrimp and fish!

Review №65

I ordered a salad with shrimp and a side of clam chowder online. They had it ready to go on time, but when I got home I noticed they forgot the shrimp in the salad and the salad dressing. I called and they asked if I wanted to come back for it. I said yes and the lady was literally waiting with a baggie of the shrimp and dressing, a smile, and a coupon for next time. The food was great, the people were nice, and they are quick to fix any issues :)

Review №66

Don't let them seat you on the opposite side of the kitchen wall. You can feel your booth move when the bang the dishes in and out of they dishwasher. And the noise will affect your ability to have a conversation. Other then cold clam chowder everything else was great.

Review №67

The food was served fresh, tasty and hot. Everyone in my party of 8 really enjoyed the food and the service (on a Thursday night) . It was my Birthday and and the waitress was very good she made it special.

Review №68

Scrumptious food!!! Nice view right on the creek. Friendly knowledgeable staff, and awesome atmosphere and decorations! The rainbow trout was delicious!!

Review №69

Just love the all u can eat seafood. Going to have my birthday party there next week

Review №70

Went here last Dec. for my B-Day. It was the lousiest meal ever. I ordered lobster. It was GRILLED! It was so small, I got two bites. It was shrunk down. We complained to the "Mgr." She said "this is the way we do it." She couldn't care less that it was a special occasion. When we paid the bill, I added "Never again!"

Review №71

It's was ok maybe try something different next time but wasn't really all that impressed

Review №72

Great appiterizers

Review №73

Dining outdoors was fantastic....good seafood

Review №74

We had the advertised Seafood all you can eat platter the codfish was good and the Shrimp was good but the clam strips war overcook but the clam chowder was great overall a good meal.

Review №75

The food is always good here

Review №76

Had a great evening. Thank you

Review №77

His is a fine dining seafood restaurant. If you are lucky they have some tables with a good view. Their seafood platter is delicious. Honestly, we couldn't think of eating anything else after the platter. Just the right spice and the seafood cooked to perfection. Beautiful food, lovely friendly staff very nice restaurant . Highly recommended!

Review №78

I ordered a crab louie, which I have ordered at many different restaurants over the years. I asked for the dressing to be on the side, which it wasn't. The salad was stopped with dressing plus had green peppers on it. I hate peppers and have never had another restaurant put those on.

Review №79

Good service, quality food, reasonable price

Review №80

Wait for table was too long and there were many empty tables. My dinner took about a half hour to arrive and wasn't even room temperature. The server offered to bring more food, but that would have just added more time to our meal and long drive home. Overall, the staff were indifferent when I mentioned the poor quality of the food. They seem to need more training in handling customer concerns.

Review №81


Review №82

The food is spectacular. The service is excellent. Friendly faces and very welcoming.

Review №83

I got my food to go. The food was room temperature there is nothing worse than room temperature food that you've just ordered. This is the second time I've been disappointed by this restaurant won't be back again

Review №84

Excellent service and very tasty fresh seafood. Prices are reasonable for the quality of food too.

Review №85

Great food, decent prices. Large portions. Margaritas are really good.

Review №86

They should use some fresh vegetables.

Review №87

Great soup and salad lunch! Service was exceptional. Shrimp was fresh and the salad was crispy!

Review №88

What a wonderful dinner!Definitely a great meal.I really love this meal.Had dinner with friends. Menu is perfect, something for everyone. Service was awesome and the staff was very accommodating. Will be back definitely!Thanks for the amazing food!

Review №89

McGrath's Fish House in Milwaukie has been a local favorite since 1980. Tonight I had the hazelnut encrusted sole, and my husband had the endless prawns. Both entrees were delicious. The sourdough bread and fisherman's stew are good additions. I can say we've never been disappointed with the meals or service there in the last 13 years.

Review №90

Great food, great service and very fair prices.

Review №91

It seemed like the food took a long time but there were several other large tables so I guess we were just last in line. When our meals came out it seemed like the kitchen made a lot of mistakes with them. Extra shrimp on the wrong salad, dressing not on the side of another, they completely lost my mother's meal so she had to wait extra long. David, our server, was excellent and handled everything SO gracefully. I wish every server I encountered had his demeanor. Definitely made the experience better even though it was kind of a weird one.

Review №92

Highly Recommend, the food is Great, people are friendly & accommodating, atmosphere is mellow & comfortable, if you like good seafood you cant go wrong.

Review №93

That's real seafood. It's great. Pleasant ambiance and servers

Review №94

Waitresses (Lauren especially) were great. Food was good. Buckley Bay oysters were as delicious as ever! The dirty bird is the best dirty martini we ever had!

Review №95

Good food, service still slow

Review №96

Good lunch specials.and a nice atmosphere. Friendly service

Review №97

Outstanding food and service. Very reasonable prices. High value

Review №98

Adequate food but the usual fried food...To many dishes to choose from. Probably the rating of 3.9 is fair.

Review №99

Amazing. Love coming here. Great food and great service.

Review №100

I almost feel bad about this review. There was nothing "wrong" with the food, but it was not great. I somehow thought it would be a good idea to eat at a chain restaurant for an all you can eat fisherman's Platter. The bread was yummy, but whipped margarine ruined it for me. The Clam chowder is mediocre at best not even hot by any means. The Shrimp was good, meaty. The fish is over battered and greasy, it could be I am too picky, I got what you could expect I guess. The service was okay. I personally wouldn't recommend it.
