Their happy hour used to be decent, but at some point they changed the bar menu and took off some of the things I loved (like the edamame). Also, when my coworkers and I came for happy hour we were scolded by the bartender and told to "tone it down" when there were only two other guests in the bar... More

We came because we had a gift card and are going to an event at the Orpheum later. Great happy hour appetizers. We had the seafood stuffed mushrooms, the coconut shrimp and crab quesos. All were delicious and the drinks were perfect. We will definitely be back!

We took our 21 year old son to this happy hour before heading just a block down to the Dakota Jazz Club for a show. The happy hour menu was generous with both seafood options and beef options. The 3 of us split tuna poke, firecracker tacos, seafood stuffed mushrooms, mussels, A-1 beef burger and truffle fries. Of those foods... More

While it is a nice enough place to have a birthday dinner, they have one of the hands down best happy hour deals around. It changes fairly often but we're talking very reasonable prices for food that's still pretty good. It used to be my lunch spot when I had a late shift.

We had been by this place multiple times, and decided to go here to meet a client for Happy Hour, based on the client's recommendation. The restaurant and bar have a neat vibe, but overall we were not impressed. The Happy Hour food menu was very limited. One of the people in our party has issues with gluten. When she... More

So many places to pick from in downtown Minneapolis but we are so glad we went here. It was a Saturday night and we found that there was an hour wait without reservations but the hostess said there is open seating in the bar. Thinking that we wouldn't get in we checked and there were 2 tables open! We loved... More

The food is well prepared, and priced appropriately. Service is fine, and the ambience is good too. But it's odd. we've dined here a couple of times, and nothing really memorable stands out. I think they try hard; it's just that nothing really makes it shine.

We arrived at 6:15 for a 7:15 reservation. We just wanted to have a drink before dinner. IMPOSSIBLE..the bar was busy, but the staff was horrible. Two bartenders maybe did their best, but not acceptable. After waiting for 15 minutes to have anyone acknowledge we were alive, we left and went and had a drink at the Radison. We returned... More

Unique to Minneapolis, the restaurant has several "snugs" (private booths for six with draperies) in the formal dining room. The handsome interior features handcrafted mahogany, stained glass (depicting Minnesota heritage), brass accents, and Tiffany-style lamps lending a traditional note to the interior.

McCormick & Schmick's also features a lively bar experience, with a bar staff that practices traditional mixology -- hand-shaken cocktails using only bottled sodas, freshly squeezed juices and premium liquors.
