McCormick & Schmick’s, Bridgewater, NJ

Since the last days of school are easy my family decided to take a trip to the mall and I met them there. We decided to eat at the restaurant called McCormick & Schmick’s at the Bridgewater Commons restaurant. The restaurant seemed smaller then I remembered it the last time we went there. We picked the 4 person booth, for a more cozy experience, to eat our meal. The menu had the day and date on it signifying that they prepare a new menu everyday depending on the fresh fish of the day. The wine menu on the reverse offered a variety of choices to match the choice of food. Divya ordered the Chateau Michelle Riesling and I ordered a Sam Adams. For Appetizers, we decided to order the Large Sampler of the Oysters and we decided to rate them so that the next time we come we can get that plate. My daughter’s Meghan and Isha passed on the Oysters but enjoyed a bowl of the Seafood and Corn Chowder which was a delight.

-Hama-Hama Oysters – A little fishy for us.
-Chiconteague Oysters – Good
-Blue Diamond Oysters – Good
-Salty Aire Oysters – Very Good
-Jorstad Creek Oysters – Doable
-Blue Bayon Oysters – good size and better than good.

Verdict the next time we will order the Salty Aire Oysters or the Blue Bayon.

Since we do not have a very large appetite we decided to share three entrees.
Isha tried the Fried Shrimp Platter which came with fries and a cocktail sauce. The shrimp was cooked just right and the batter was crispy the fries complimented the shrimp perfectly.

Meghan decided on the Crab Cake Duo which we also enjoyed but we felt we have had better at the Cheesecake Factory which will be my next review.
Lastly my wife Divya and I decided on the Miso Cod Kodiak Alaska, which I must admit we absolutely loved. The Cod reminded me of the Chilean Sea Bass and it was moist and flakey. It came with some crispy fresh leafy vegetables and a lemon flavored sauce to me mind it was the best dish we ordered. This is a very upscale sea food restaurant and I am sure we will visit it again soon.

  1. I have to say the only one thing I like at this franchised eatery is the “Bar” if offers fresh squeezed fruit juices to accompany your libations.
