Good good; great service

The menu is a little upscale and a bit limited, but we still found some good choices. Sitting outside next to the river was really nice. We had a great server (tim) who made us feel really welcome. We appreciated the basket of chips to start our visit and to take the hungry edge off.

Another meal where the the fish was raw in the center. My husband had the McCarthy Burger, which he enjoyed. Service was slow and seemed disorganized due to two large tables. Most of the attention was on those tables. Coming back to the area this weekend and would not return here. Positive is the view of the river.

Trying not to let construction affect this review, but man it is hard. Cement trucks galore working on the riverwalk drive made this a very distracting lunch. We could have eaten inside, but nothing about the restaurant inside suggests a unique experience. Mac and Cheese dish was short on the cheese and lacked the creamy texture that you expect from...

New to town for business and this place looked promising on Trip Advisor. There is a nice patio to enjoy your meal but alas...construction going on the other side of the small river. I enjoyed the Seafood Avocado Salad, it was delightful!! Loved the crusty bread slices and sweet tea. But save run for dessert...the Reese's Peanut Butter cheesecake...wonderful!

McCarthy's on the Riverwalk is a great place to sit and enjoy a meal or drink in downtown Elkhart Indiana. They are positioned right next to the river and have a great patio both covered and uncovered to sit and enjoy the outdoors. They also have a nice dining area inside should the weather not accommodate outdoor seating. The restaurant... More

Nice place to stop and have lunch on a sunny day. Tables are inside and out, and you can eat and watch the world go by outside, or just grab a table inside. Food is good, fresh and wait staff friendly. Can get busy for dinner, but lunch is a nice time to stop by.

Anniversary dinner, casual atmosphere, comfortable seating, nice simple decor. We had the Scotch Egg as an appetizer - our first time - was good. Also for the first time, had their loaded Shepherds Pie - wow - hot, flavorful, not greasy, I'd order again. Hubby had the chicken stuffed with bacon, with garlic sauce, with baked potato - he was...

Went with 2 other couples while en route to Shipshewana. To start the restaurant was clean and presented itself well. The server on the other hand must have been new and didn't know the menu well at all. He could not tell us how the food was prepared which was important because of a few of us having certain food...

The excellence of our dinners was only outdone by the wonderful service provided! The stuffed chicken breast and sautéed perch were amazing!! Randi was our awesome server and Ashley made very tasty pink flamingos!'

We were traveling and made a stop here in Elkhart tonight. My husband and I love to try local restaurants whenever possible for two reasons, one we hate chain places and two we like to support the local economy. Your place was an excellent choice! The food was superb, the service top notch and we really enjoyed the patio. Several... More
