McGrath's Fish House is a chain of seafood restaurants based in Salem, Oregon.[3]

The first McGrath’s Fish House was opened by John McGrath in Salem, Oregon, in 1980. The company expanded to 20 locations at its most recent peak, including eight in Oregon, three in Washington, one in Idaho and four in Utah.[4]

In February 2010 the restaurant chain filed for bankruptcy under Chapter 11 reorganization, with both assets and liabilities between $10 million and $50 million.[1] A month later, in a first step towards reorganization, it closed four restaurants, located in Orem and Salt Lake City, Utah, Scottsdale, Arizona, and Lynnwood, Washington.[2]
