This place has very good seafood, service and atmosphere all at reasonable prices. I know it is part of a chain, but you really don't get that feeling while you're dining there.

Weber Grill is one of our favorite places to dine in Chicago. We are there a few days after the beloved Cubs took the Championship and the town was alive with excitement. Our dinner was delicious and service was excellent thanks to "Darko " our waiter. I had the brisket and my husband had ribs. Coleslaw and cornbread were superior.... More

5 stars with no doubts. The M&S restaurant has excellent decor, the atmosphere was amazing, the service was excellent (Lauren), and our meals were fantastic. We spoke with the General Manager (Bill Scott) on our way out and was very impressed with his dedication for being the best. Thank you M&S staff!

I've been to this restaurant on a business dinner and I liked it. The people who served are amazing and the food was excellent, which I had to invite my friend on the next day for lunch and we enjoyed a lot.

We have had dinner at other McCormick & Schmick's but this was the first time we had lunch here and were totally happy with the choices offered and pricing of lunches. Service was good and food was excellent! The kitchen was slow preparing our lunches but all in all good lunch.

We had a dinner in the upper part with a big group. The first frustration was the glasses! They said they are out of wine glasses and served red wine in regular water glasses to all of us. There was no salt and pepper on the table. We had to wait for them to bring. The coffee and tea were... More
