OLd Favorite that never fails to please!

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... read 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

Great place! Newly expanded and lovely. Service always good and food is amazing. Large portions at good prices. The best egg rolls!! Note....carry out portions are smaller than eat-in.

The atmosphere of the restaurant since remodeling is beautiful. We usually get take-out but it looks great. We've been coming to Plum Garden for years. Every dish is delicious but the Hong Kong chicken is a favorite for the entire family. It is a little more expensive than the average take-out but well worth it, as you would actually want... More

As a long-time customer, this family-run restaurant has always been a favorite. Their latest remodeling has enhanced the dining experience even more. Cannot go wrong with any dish you order, with the hong kong as the contiued top meal.

I recently had the pleasure of dining at Plum Garden over the holiday break. I have to say, I was simply blown away by how stellar everything was! I haven't been in since they remodeled last year but the restaurant looks fantastic. Great ambiance in the dining room and finally some waiting room for picking up carry outs (its always... More

The food was great. I liked the egg rolls and the Adult Root beer. The meals are large so sharing is an option or take it home for lunch the next day.

My family has been a Plum Garden customer for over 40-years (they opened in 1965). Yes that's a long time, my mother talks about when they were just a pick-up window restaurant. As a family I have memories of our regular visits, and looking forward to a delicious, filling meal. Since the "New Remodel" the quality of food doesn't seem... More
