Went here for a team dinner. All were happy with their food and service. We had 18 people and it was a mix of kids and parents. We did have to move seats around as kids wanted to talk to other and the staff kept up with the moves. We did have a small issue with the right checks, but... More

Absolutely nothing special about this place - might as well have been the Red Lobster across the street. We had a very polite waiter that had absolutely no idea what was on the menu and what came with each meal. Clean, prompt service for very boring food.

I did not have my hopes too high but was disappointed against pretty low standards. I was not too hungry so opted for the cod. There was about 70% breaking to 30% fish. Was about the same quality you see at Captain Dees but with more oil. Could not finish, even half of it. Coupled with fair at best service... More

decent place for fish and chips. The chowder is pretty good. If you want really fresh seafood, I wouldn't recommend someplace else. I'm pretty sure they use previously frozen unless noted on a fresh sheet.

I arrived at the Seattle airport. Starving, my girlfriend drove us along Federal Way to find a nice restaurant. McGraths was it! Daffodils in bloom at the door and a welcoming reception felt nice. The grilled chinook salmon special was excellent. All the food was so good! Service was impeccable and the environment was interesting with lots of wood and... More

I was surprised at how good this meal was for a chain seafood restaurant. All the food was excellent and the prices were reasonable. We had the crab-stuffed mushrooms that were some of the best I have ever had. I had the stuffed halibut with a lobster sauce that made me swoon and think about days later. My wife had... More

Visited the federal way location, sat in the bar area, mid week, not busy, service was poor at best, ordered the shrimp feast and two bar ginger ales. We had to constantly ask for beverage and water refills as well as refills on our shrimp meals. The waitress was distant and not friendly. The food was good for the most... More

My date and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The food was prepared well and was quite tasty. The service was excellent, and the restaurant is laid out in such a way as to not be loud like many other restaurants.

We eat at McGrath's a least twice a month. We feel the coconut shrimp is best. The lunch menu is quite interesting, with many seafood specials. We feel there happy hour is one of the best around the area. We enjoy the combo platters and salads are special. Service has always been good.

Thank Larry B
