Our History

McCormick & Schmick's dates its deep seeded roots back to 1974 and has a long reputation of being a company that serves great seafood, steaks, oysters, and beverages with outstanding service, in superior locations. We are well known for our Chef inspired food, award-winning happy hour, energetic bars, hand-crafted Mixology, and world-class private dining event space. The combination of an open imagination and a respect for tradition is what makes McCormick & Schmick's the classic and successful business that it is today.

The history of McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurants began with the purchase of Jake’s Famous Crawfish Restaurant located in Portland, Oregon, bringing the more than 100-year-old landmark back to life. Several years later, the original McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood Restaurant opened, and since then, has grown to become the nation’s premier family of seafood restaurants.
