Very large portions - make sure you are hungry

Nice atmosphere, although the "cool jazz" background music was incongruous for a Chinese restaurant. The portions are very big, one order is really enough for two. The staff are very attentive and even anticipated my drink reorder. I'm going to be in McHenry for the next year, on and off, so I'll... read more

My family and I have been visiting Plum Garden since 1992. We don't live nearby, so we make a trip once a year in November for my birthday. Plum Garden is beloved to me. The food is great, and the portions are family-sized for sharing. I've never ordered something I didn't like. Always friendly, quick service. Recently Plum Garden expanded... More

So a friend and I visited Plum Garden in McHenry the other night and had dinner. We both had Hong Kong Chicken, one of their signature dishes. While I found it to be delicious, I also found it to be quite salty yet my friend was putting salt on hers so I guess it's different tastes for different folks. Along... More

Have been a customer for many years. Perry has turned it over to the sons and expanded the dining area. Food is still great but sometimes the food portions are smaller. Very unique dinner entrees and drinks. Well worth the trip.

We've gone here for decades and it is always wonderful! Mr Wonderful loves the Hong Kong chicken and I am a fool for the sweet/sour shrimp. Portions are generous and well prepared. Décor is old timey Chinese restaurant but the food! We moved out of the area 30 years ago but whenever we get back to the Chicago area we... More

My wife & I have lived in McHenry for 38 years and have patronized this family restaurant for almost all those years. When we want oriental food we go no where else; truly a tasty gem tucked away in a beautiful small town. Go ahead, start with egg drop soup! My favorite...Hippie Bob
