THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED McCormick's Fish House & Bar Restaurant Review

: One of the longest-lived eateries in the ever-changing LoDo restaurant scene, McCormick's has persevered with a triple-threat of assets. For starters there's the namesake dining room, where white-shirted servers deliver good old-fashioned service and some of the best seafood in Denver. Fresh fish and shellfish are airlifted in daily; the menu includes steamed, broiled and fried swimmers from points north, south, east and west. When we’re in the mood to indulge, we order the halibut stuffed with Brie, shrimp, crab and dill. Early bird specials add extra value for the buck. There's also McCormick's bar, a glorious antique setting that delivers a double dose of happy-hour bargains, including burgers, seafood, pastas, sandwiches and more. It's a mind-blowing cheap date that requires a drink purchase; meet the obligation with one of the house's fine microbrews. Bonus: Every time it snows, Irish coffees cost only one dollar. Need more thrills? Slip next door to the adjoining Cruise Room, where hipsters eyeball each other over martinis and boutique spirits under the rouge glow of vintage pink neon.
