"Boasting a great location in the historic Oxford Hotel with a treat of
a dining room, this stylish LoDo seafooder impresses with a daily
menu of uncomplicated, melt-in-your-mouth fish that's remarkable
for a landlocked state..." - Zagat Survey

"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. There’s also McCormick’s bar, a glorious antique setting. 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." - Gayot

"McCormick’s, the main dining room in the beautiful Oxford Hotel, is reminiscent of an old fine-dining fish house, complete with a dark, woody decor and a waitstaff dressed in traditional white jackets. The staff plays a prominent role. Choose from a nice array of fresh oysters on the half shell, or try mussels in curry sauce, seafood-stuffed mushrooms, or baked Brie and garlic. The fish comes from around the world. Choices vary based on the day’s freshest catch, and anything can be ordered grilled and spiced to your liking. Meat lovers will enjoy the surf and turf.  Desserts change frequently and are well worth the extra indulgence."  --  Gabby Gourmet
