“Bigger, but NOT better!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

We haven't been to Plum Garden in awhile. We live in North Aurora, so when we have occasion to be in McHenry, this is/was our "go-to" place. We were suprised by the renovations. However, the food and service have suffered. Our egg rolls took awhile to get. We asked our waitress about it and she blamed the "male" staff members. The eggrolls were not warm and not much flavor. Then, our entrees were long in coming. Again, blamed it on the "male" staff members. We ordered what we usually do, Hong Kong Chicken and Cashew chicken. Both were EXTREMELY salty. This WAS the best Chinese restaurant, but not anymore.

“Was good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

We went to dinner Thursday evening may 1. We noticed that the bar area was much larger and the seating was expanded and they also had a gaming area. When we sat down we noticed that the prices had gone up. We ordered the pot stickers. They took some time and the mgr said they were on the house because it took so long. They were also not very warm so we knew that they had sat for a while. My wife ordered the fried rice which was ok and I had the 2 paddy egg foo young. They were big but not very good. We had almond cookies and the second cookie under the top one looked like it had a bite out of it. Not sure what happened to this place we used to like it and took people there for dinner but not again, we will not be back

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

This was our first visit to Plum Garden and we had a great tasting meal, with lots of leftovers yum. The waitress came by a few times to check if we needed anything very attentive and had fast service. We will go back and we will tell our friends about them.

We live in McHenry and have done carry out from Plum Garden many times. Friday we decided to go there for dinner. The atmospher was fun and the food was excellent. The portion sizes are great.
