Our high school had a party at McCarthy's as part of its class reunion, and we could not have had more fun or been more pleased with the restaurant. We had about 250 people attend, and we combined with the decor store next door, b on the river, for the event. Buffet dinner was served in McCarthy's private dining room,... More

My mother and I had a very nice lunch. The service was very good as was our meal. My mother had the burger and I had the chicken sandwich. The view of the river walk is very relaxing.

Love the food and service. One of our favorite places to go locally. Irish menu items but much more and they have the best coffee! My daughter likes it so much that she is having her (very small) wedding and reception in their banquet room.

My wife and I had a great meal, were treated like old friends by our waitress, and enjoyed a beautiful river walk setting.

The hostess and server were very obliging. We were a little chilled and they put the heater on. It was very comfortable and we always enjoy the food and wine.

My wife and I ate lunch here with friends recently with friends. The outdoor seating on the river is a nice change of pace in a city where there isn't much of that available. The food and service were both respectable but not exceptional. Overall: good, but not great.

I would love for you to drop me an email to let me know where we fell short of that. I appreciate your time, it will help... More

It is expensive, but sitting outside was really nice and the food was great! The service was good too. Nice place to go for couples or with a friend for an afternoon drink!

We stopped for dinner at McCarthy's after a walk on the Riverwalk. The walk was beautiful and the restaurant was a nice finish for the day. We both had the Caesar salads - excellent. We shared two 'small plates' which was plenty of food for us. The shrimp were warm and well prepared. The crab cakes were meaty and flavorful.... More

Thank you for your lovely review! The patio is a favorite place to be this time of year. We do have overhead radiant heaters under the awning as well as a couple of fireplaces. Outside of the awning we have a few free standing heaters. In addition to that, we always have fleece blankets available. Don't hesitate to ask for... More

Service was good and a variety of different options on the menu. I had the shepards pie which was tasty but a very small portion. I could have eaten it all in two minutes. On the other hand my friend ordered the Irish nachos and the portion size was more than even a big guy could handle. He left half... More

Hi Kathy.... thanks for your review. So glad you enjoyed our beautiful patio. We have designed our menu to offer a variety of meals to satisfy a range of appetites. We frequently heard that our nachos were too small so we moved it from the Small Plate area to the Irish Fare. It is a mighty portion and have gotten... More
