Go to a chain restaurant if you want plain

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... read 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

On my second visit to this location I found the server to handle the group of 40 plus individuals in a timely manner. Unlike my first visit to this restaurant my order was filled as requested. Enjoyed the Grilled Amish Chicken Caesar Salad with the Grilled Vegetable Pasta. It was the perfect combination that I enjoyed completely.

Fresh ingredients grace the plates of all that is offered on the menu. The salads are unique and so delicious and large enough for 2! The lunch menu changes with the availability of local produce and goods and we are never disappointed when we try something new. Of course you can stay a week and try all the beer varieties....

I've eaten here half a dozen times and I'm always impressed with the ambiance of the restaurant. Mccarthy's offers outdoor patio seating that overlooks the Elkhart river and river walk. Not a 5 star view by any means but so much better than the parking lot view so many restaurants offer with outdoor seating. The food is usually pretty good... More
