In mid October, on a Monday you'll find many restaurants closed in Port Clinton. After the summer tourists go home, this turns into a sleepy little town, full of high school spirit evident by window paintings on most of the businesses supporting the upcoming football game!

Goid creative menu. The burgers and sandwiches are excellent. Why do you have to pay extra for fries?

The menu is creative and generally tasty but they find a way to nickel and dime you... More

First of all, the staff was very friendly and helpful....that always helps. My wife had the Shepard's Pie and liked it just fine, although the Irish soda biscuits were her favorite. I had a Finnegan's salad and can honestly say it was the best salad I've ever had....delicious!

Irish stew was so rich and delicious. Shepherd's pie was good. Atmosphere was fun-staff attentive without being overbearing, music in bar that added to the ambience. Collages of Ireland's unique sights were beautiful.

We liked the look of McCarthy's but on a Monday night in late August there was distinct lack of customers (4 including us) Bar server was very nice. The place was scheduled to close at 10.00pm but we were gone by then.
