McGrath's all you can eat shrimp special features 4 different dishes, all tasty. Service is always warm and friendly and seating is quick. They serve warm sourdough bread first and a fresh salad before the meal.

If you want good sea food this is the place. Polite wait staff, good quality and quantity of food. Close to a large shopping mall, and lodging not too far away. Usually have an e-mail coupon for special meals.

We both had the crab cake dinner. She loved her chowder, and I my fisherman's stew, loaded with chunks of yummy fish and potatoes. The crab cakes are nicely done, with three generous cakes... I ended up taking half home! Missing the former downtown Salem location... Lancaster Mall is a bit too far to drive from home and work!

The waitress brought me a salad with the wrong dressing and then brought we the wrong dinner. 2 weeks before I had razor clams that were so tough I could not cut them with... More

Have eaten fish and shellfish in Europe and at various places in western America. This location rates as good as any I've tried.

Visiting my uncle in hospital, My aunt wanted to buy dinner and she suggested we go there. I was very pleased with her choice. The Place is very nice. We were seated in a booth and found the server to be very attentive. I was amazed at the selection. I'm from Astoria so I am a bit of a snob... More
