Fisherman's Boos

Throw this one back

The hazelnut sole really pissed me off, though it was one of the less expensive main courses at $11.99 a pop. You're served two large fillets, each completely covered in a nearly inedible hazelnut coating, the top one smothered in a lemon velouté. Here's a message for Papa McGrath, wherever he may be: This is sole worthy of everlasting damnation! Sole does not need to be mistreated in this manner. You can't even enjoy the fish because of the hazelnutty layer in which McGrath's cooks have entrapped the poor fin-bearer. If Aquaman were still around, he'd hunt down the author of this travesty and feed the criminal to his pet orca Shamu!

Larry the Lobster's not the only one unhappy with McGrath's menu, as you'll discover from our crabby critic's review. Here executive chef JC Ferreira and server Mark yuk it up at Larry's expense.

Okay, I went a little overboard there. Aquaman didn't have a pet orca, as far as I know. But surely that dweller of the depths would wreak vengeance on McGrath's Fish House, eh? Someone needs to, if only for the poor meals I encountered there. Perhaps this review will suffice until the Super Friends can spare the King of the Sea for a uniquely unsavory mission.

I went to McGrath's because I had been to one in Oregon and thought the Scottsdale store was way better! I can't believe what this guy wrote. He is obviously a pompous jerk! I thought the food was excellent as did everyone else in my party. The service was amazing, the decor is nice and the drinks were gererous. I think that this guy is comparing apples and oranges, sure there are better restaraunts, but they come with a much higher price. McGrath's is only equivelant to Red Lobster in price, nowhere else. The food is 10 times better. Don't take your reviews from this guy!!

Hmm, Ive eaten at McGrath's a few times and your writer tried alot of the simple dishes,, popcorn shrimp is not something I would try at a restaraunt. The coconut Prawns are huge very good, and so are the Prawn Skewers. I usually get the Seared Ahi Tuna appetizer or their Steamer Clams- the best around!!!. Not big on desserts but if you want great dessert, go to the Cheesecake factory. We've had alot of good dishes and food at McGrath's,, sorry your writer complained about everything.
