McGrath's Fish House at Lancaster Mall

Review by Jill 8/15/08
I joined McGrath's "E-Club" and received a $5 off coupon. I also received notice of a special "Island Seafood Platter" for $9.99, with Macadamia Mahi Mahi, Coconut Shrimp, Teriyaki Shrimp Skewers and served with roasted vegetables, rice pilaf, garden salad and hot sourdough bread.
We visited the restaurant on east Center St. (by Lancaster Mall) and we both ordered the special. I found both shrimp items very good--the coconut shrimp was a good size, crispy and tasty, not overwhelmed with breading; the teriyaki shrimp was delicious with that wood-fired flavor. I found the Mahi Mahi well prepared, seasoned and presented. DH agreed, except for the Mahi Mahi. Having never eaten it before, he felt it had an 'odd' flavor, perhaps even a little 'off'. I tried his and it did have a little different taste than my portion, not as firm or fresh tasting.
Service was excellent, low-key, not intrusive. The atmosphere is very pleasant and the building itself quite interesting. This special runs through Sept 7th. You can join the E-Club on their website.

Jill,
That's how I have to eat their yummy coconut shrimp - in a combination platter. It's so good, but so rich - especially with their sweet tangy dipping sauce.
Did they do this building with the open ceilings?
