Stopped for dinner on Thursday 10 July with 5 friends. One friend and I ordered the Walleye basket – his with homemade potato chips and mine with fries. My friend eats a fair amount of Walleye as that was the quarry for this particular visit to Port Clinton. He said this was the best Walleye he had eaten, and I... More

They had pretzel bites with cheese dip as an appetizer special, it was great. We ordered a boxty each, after the waiter explained a boxty to us and recommended it. My husband had the Rueben Boxty and said it was excellent. It was all the good stuff of a Reuben with potato pancakes, what's not to like! I had the... More

Enjoying a weekend with friends at Port Clinton and Put-In-Bay's Pirate Festival. Ate dinner at McCarthy's last night. Lots of authentic Irish food. Everyone likes what they had. Soda bread with marmalade butter was great! Scotch eggs were interesting. Irish stew was huge. I like it less soupy and a little thicker, but good flavor. Good selection of drafts.

We stop at McCarthy's every time we are in Port Clinton, Ohio. The food is good and plentiful, but we especially like their soup. My favorite winter meal is a grilled cheese sandwich and McCarthy's tomato basil soup. the Irish stew is very tasty - the small size order is more than enough. We've also enjoyed their fish sandwich -... More

I am a local, and frequent this restaurant all year. I recommend the warm pita chips with dip as an appetizer! The perch wrap is absolutely delicious. I also appreciate that they carry PBR. The staff is very friendly.

Great beer selection. Great wait staff. Awesome atmosphere. My husband and I each got fish dishes and both were good. The homemade chips and dip were great. My daughter's Guinness Stew was wonderful but a little too spicy for her. My son's salad was fresh and my other son's wings were good.
