We were in Elkhart for the first time. Found the restaurant from ads in local tourist magazines. It was a lovely change from the down home Amish food we had been having on our trip to the area. We both opted for salads. I had the seafood salad which had shrimp, scallops and REAL crab, not the imitation stuff some... More

The food was great, perfectly prepared and we were able to request special items that were not on the menu (thanks Terri for going the extra mile). Jeanne our waitress/entertainment director/superstar was absolutely flawless. If you know our family (25 unorganized, musical chair playing noisy people), we are not easy. What Jeanne did on her own was nothing short of... More

Went to McCarthy's tonight. What I usually order was not on the menu anymore. Instead of telling me to order something else, Chad our waiter, said he would check to see if it could be made. It was made to order and was delicious! They went above and beyond to make my dining experience exceptional! Thank you!

We live in Elkhart so we have been to McCarthy's several times. There was only one time when my food was not good and they offered to make it right but I was running short of time so they gave me a free dessert to take with me instead. Service is good and the last time we were there I... More

This meal was nothing more than poor chain restaurant style food. The food was bland and cold. There were not many people there, and our food took almost a 1/2 hour to be served after our order was placed. I understand that this place is owned by "known" people in Elkhart, but you would think that they would make sure... More

Our family loves going to McCarthy's. The food is always delicious and the staff is friendly and gives great service. My daughter even had her wedding reception in their banquet room, and is hosting our other daughter's baby shower there.

When business required a brief trip to Elkhart, a city I am mostly unfamiliar with, I hit up TripAdvisor to see what the lunch recommendations might be. After striking out at a couple of other places that were closed, we ended up at McCarthy's. Being early-to-mid afternoon on a winter Saturday, the place was understandably quiet. Asking about sandwich recommendations,... More

Thank you for your glowing review. I am very glad that you enjoyed your experience here and look forward to a return visit. I do wonder what we fell short on that lead you to four rather than five star review. Feel free to drop me an email if you would like to give further feedback. jeanne@mccarthysontheriverwalk.com More
