Mccormick & Schmick's shuts down abruptly at The Greene

You aren’t totally screwed if you hold a McCormick & Schmick’s gift card

Holders of gift cards to the McCormick & Schmick’s restaurant at The Greene Town Center in Beavercreek were understandably distraught when news broke Sunday the restaurant had shut down for good.

We know because we heard from some of those gift-card holders. And they were not happy.

So we checked with a representative of Landry’s Inc., who responded with mostly good news — at least for those who don’t mind driving a bit.

“Gift cards can be used at any of the other Ohio locations, as well as all 500 restaurant concepts nationwide,” Howard Cole, chief operating officer of Landry's, Inc., said in an email.

So that means gift cards are good not only at the two other Ohio McCormick & Schmick’s locations in Columbus and Cincinnati, but also at any of the other restaurant chains that Landry’s owns. None have locations in the Dayton area, but there are options.

The McCormick & Schmick’s in Beavercreek was one of The Greene’s flagship eateries, and it occupied a prime location overlooking the center’s Town Square. It had operated for more than a decade, opening within months of The Greene itself opening in 2006.

Cole told this news outlet via email on Sunday, Sept. 24 that the restaurant chain chose not to renew its lease, citing rising real-estate costs.
