In the historic Oxford Hotel, McCormick’s Fish House & Bar is like two separate restaurants separated by a hallway. The main dining room offers fairly private booth seating and reservations are recommended.
In the corner bar, it’s a combination of benches and chair seating at tables along the windows. A lovely stained-glass panel behind the antique bar is a reminder of the hotel’s lavish past.
Just about every seafood imaginable is flown in fresh daily here with over 30 varieties available. The happy hour menu in the bar is the best bargain in town with items for less than $2.
