Great all around food, for sure, but the chowder is what keeps me coming back year after year. The salmon is great, fish and chips, sandwiches, calamari... I don't recall ever having a bad meal there. But, seriously, try the chowder.

I've only eaten the fish and chips here. Fresh fish hand battered and fried to perfection! Malt vinegar, and a side of chowder you can't go wrong... or find better.

We have always gotten good food. However, we have called in for reservations only to find out we were forgotten on special occasions. Sometimes there will be a number of tables open and lots of people waiting, most likely because they did not have enough servers. Servers are good but can be slow.

We attempted to try McGraths again after a couple of bad experiences.....however, after we were seated and waited for 15 minutes while several passing waitresses never addressed us we walked out. My husband let the hostess know that we were never approached so after this last bad experience with service and food in the past, we will not get anymore... More

3rd time there in a month and each time is worse than the time before. I always get the same thing, so it's either the food or the service. Cody in the bar is fantastic if you can get him as a waiter, but no so much for the rest of the staff behind the bar. Not personable nor motivated... More

Nice atmosphere, excellent staff. A large menu with a variety of seafood although much of it is deep fried. Very good salads and the stuffed mushroom appetizer is excellent.

Last time I ate here I got food poisoning. The fish was oily and ew. Maybe it's changed since then but I doubt it. It's a chain restaurant.
