My daughter-in-law and I had lunch here for the first time. Our server was attentive and pleasant. I ordered the cioppino, and she ordered pasta with scallops and hazelnuts. I found the cioppino to be very sweet with the tomato base, but not enough spices to season the base. Four crab legs were atop the dish -- I wish it... More

McGrath's offers many excellent seafood dishes at reasonable prices, and is the best place for seafood in east Vancouver in my estimation. The service is reliably efficient and attentive, some of them are particularly nice, my favorite is the seared ahi salad.

Me and my parents came here to try it out. When we came here the hostess seated us and after that no one came to see us. We did not even recieve water or have someone say hello. After 15 minutes of waiting, we got up and left the establishment. This was the first time we have left a place... More

Wife and I happened onto McGrath's and stopped in for a late-ish dinner. Good good in general and clams in particular. Service a little slow but not bad. Good local beers on tap. I'd recommend it.

I was a little skeptical about this place by reading the reviews before I went. The weather was bad and it was across the street so I decided to give it a try. The service was okay. The waitress was good just a little to busy for that extra touch but she was trying! The food although not excellent was... More

We were going to do joes crab shack but we could walk to this place from our room. Waitress must have asked 6 times in 10 minutes if we were ready to order. Ordered seafood fettuccine, it says in an Alfredo sauce however you would have thought it was seafood soup, super runny and had no taste. Hair in the... More
