This year, McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood Restaurants are inviting guests to bring back the timeless tradition of dinner and a movie with a revolutionary deal nationwide. Premiering July 2 and running through July 5, 2010, guests are invited to redeem a coupon good for a free movie pass with the purchase of any dinner entrée at participating McCormick & Schmick’s restaurants. The free movie pass coupon can be printed at www.McCormickandSchmicks.com/July4th.

Also starting in July, McCormick & Schmick’s restaurants across the country will debut new lobster menu specials, as well as a Fresh Blueberry Cheesecake seasonal dessert and an addition to the cocktail list with a seasonal Blueberry Mint Cooler. July lobster menu specials will include:
