Great food and atmosphere

McGraw's has great food and a great atmosphere. It has gotten substantially pricier in the past 10 years so don't expect to get out of there cheap! But the food is good and the staff is very friendly. It is also very clean and inviting. When my wife and I can afford it, it is our favorite place to... read more

We had dinner at McGraw's Valentine's day evening, a night that can be problematic for some places. McGraw's handled it perfectly. This was not a romantic evening, we had two sons, a roommate, the roommate's sister and mother plus another friend so it was 8 total. My experience with a lot of places is that when the party gets big,... More

Great setting, but that fails to offset a tired and uninspired menu. They seem to handle big groups fine, but I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone expecting an exceptional meal -- the risk of disappointment is too high. Food is definitely not the main attraction. For some reason, however, the formula seems to work and reservations are a... More

McGraw's is a place we go for celebrations, or to share the venue with visitors. The fish selection is always fresh and also broad, and the beef is fantastic. There is a huge selection of wine, beer, and alcohol. The views of the Wabash are lovely any time of year, and there is dining outdoors when the weather is good.... More

We are relatively new to the area. Had heard about this place, hadn't made it out there. Friends came into town and we were all looking for something special. This was our choice. We were very surprised! The food was fantastic and the place was packed! We appreciate good food. The menu choices weren't over done, but they were plentiful.... More

our first visit and what a find! Great location on the river. Cozy bar area. One of the best and most extensive wine lists in the Midwest. We had a great experience. The waitress was very experienced and knowledgeable. We had the Ribeye Cap and it was prepared perfectly. Food and service was the best. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We have eaten at McGraw's numerous times and have never been disappointed in the food and we have a great time. Service does suffer when the place gets slammed. Too many reservations taken for the same time. Seating is good but service declines due to overload of customers. Our favorite appetizer is smoked salmon pastrami style. The Filet and the... More

First visit to McGraws. We were with a large group and they had us in a side room which was nice. The food was excellent, service was very good. We will definitely go back.

We had reservations at 7, but did not get seated until close to 8. I really do not know the reason, but luckily the weather was nice and we waited on the patio. Once we got to our table, a very nice waitress came and took our order. We were not offered a wine list, but did order a glass... More
