The food was sub-par. They do not serve fries, they have homemade potato chips instead, which taste like store bought kettle chips that were warmed up. However, the waitress was very good.

Cant say a whole lot here only that there is a great bar here and very good service. Only had drinks but really did not want to leave, a good sign.

This is a cozy bar which has a large selection of beers and wines. The food is a combination of american and irish. Everything we had was not bad but it was unremarkable. It has a great atmosphere and service.

We were hesitant at trying this restaurant after a bad experience with another restaurant in PC. But we were plesently surprised. The food is great, the staff was nice and the prices are reasonable. Everyone had a good time.

Food and drinks were great! Only issue was I ordered medium rare steak and it came med well. Sides were awesome. Had the baby baked potatoes and veggies. Service was great! Little on the spendy side tho.

The hostess seated us and stated breezily, "Your waitress will be right with you." We started to look at the menus, and several minutes went by. Waitresses were serving tables behind us,... More

McCarthy's is a good place to enjoy Irish dishes, had the Scotch eggs for an appetizer. The walleye basket, although not an Irish dish, was great. It is a treat to eat fresh walleye and perch at the lake front! Sit by the windows in the bar for some people watching, or outside at a table.

Stopped in here while passing through to Cleveland. Glad we did! Great menu with choices for every palette and many appeared very authentic Irish. Food was great as was the service and the beers. I don't have a lot of experience in the cost of food in these parts but in my travels this was a very good value. If... More

We arrived after 6 hours in a car. The beer was cold and tasty, service was welcoming and the food was pretty good. Nice serving size of homemade potato chips. We will go back before we leave.
