My girl friend and I went there Saturday nite for dinner, Terrible experience, the Maui Maui was over seasoned, the service was terrible, we actually had to get up and start to leave to get our check. We were told that this was an upscale restaurant and we both dressed up and were very much overdressed, as there were people... More

We hoped for a step up from Applebee's but were surprised at the wonderful ambience and the quality of their food. We ordered from their Iris specialties (not easy to find good Corned Beef and a Cabbage) and were very pleased with the quality. Our server was very pleasant, and the view can't be beat.

We picked it out in a tourist brochure and it was a great find. The location was great along the waterfront and the name caught our eye because it is also our last name.(not related that I know) Had a couple of pre dinner drinks then enjoyed an excellent meal. The service and atmosphere was great. Have mentioned it to... More

The service was great, kept drink glasses filled. Food came out hot, not tepid like some places. Their chips are awesome! Nice and crispy

We went to McCarthy's for our anniversary and because we wanted to sit outside. The patio was beautiful and so relaxing. I had fish and chips that were the best I have had since moving here from Chicago a year ago. I also had a Snickers Martini that was a great end to our meal. We will be back again.

I've only been here once so I'm not giving up on this place yet but I was more impressed with the look of the restaurant than the food. I ordered the mccarthys burger.It's your typical over sized burger , nearly to big to eat with your hands. The bun was tasty but the burger and carmalized onions were bland.

One of the best meals and service I've had!! Great atmosphere seating outside with a nice view. I had salmon which was amazing and my husband had a burger which he said was the best he's ever had! The fries are really good too!

I was in Elkhart on business and my wife was travelling with me. We found McCarthy's to be more than a cut above other restaurants --wonderful food, attentive and friendly service. I grew up in western Michigan so having fried perch was a great treat. They knew just how to prepare it. We will be going back.

Great food, even better service. McCarthy's is a great restaurant where even good restaurants are rare. Elkhart isn't necessarily a thriving metropolis, so it's good to have a go-to spot.

McCarthy's is our favorite Elkhart restaurant, not only for the food, but the drinks are most always extraordinary. And, where else in northern Indiana could you find a more beautiful view. Last, but not least, the service at McCarthy's is always very,very efficient. We recently brought our out-of-town guests, as well as our grandsons for Saturday evening dinner. All were... More
