This place has great seafood. The menu is very big. The salads amazing. This is the first place I've had a "Captains Platter" and it had crab legs with it. This is a great place to satisfy seafood cravings! They also have steaks and other things.

It's been a while since we dined at McGrath's in Federal Way. The food was good, as expected. We went mid-week, and were quite disappointed with the service. Not typical for McGrath's, as the service has been excellent in the past. Not sure what's up, but we were disappointed.

A variety of seating is available here. More formal setting than other restaurants like Applebee's, fun staff and great selection and quality of food. I'm never disappointed here!

We had a group of 7 at 6:00pm on a Monday and were seated without any wait. We thank you for that. I had Salmon with a salad and really enjoyed it. The bread was a bit on the crusty side and the waitress told us so and advised she would be bringing another loaf as soon as it was... More

I had oysters on the half-shell, a pear bleu cheese & walnut salad, and cedar plank salmon. My friend had a cape cobb salad. The food was excellent. We both loved it and my salmon was tasty, moist and cooked perfectly! BUT, Something is wrong here! When we walked in there was no one to greet us and we waited... More

Oh man - what a treat! I loved the lobster, crab legs and prawns. Everything was perfectly cooked and so tasty! Wish I was in town longer, because I would come back!

Went here for a team dinner. All were happy with their food and service. We had 18 people and it was a mix of kids and parents. We did have to move seats around as kids wanted to talk to other and the staff kept up with the moves. We did have a small issue with the right checks, but... More

Absolutely nothing special about this place - might as well have been the Red Lobster across the street. We had a very polite waiter that had absolutely no idea what was on the menu and what came with each meal. Clean, prompt service for very boring food.

I did not have my hopes too high but was disappointed against pretty low standards. I was not too hungry so opted for the cod. There was about 70% breaking to 30% fish. Was about the same quality you see at Captain Dees but with more oil. Could not finish, even half of it. Coupled with fair at best service... More
