Everything was fantastic from the food to the drinks. The service was also very good. Next time I'm in Elkhart this is a for sure to do. There's also several Pokestops in the area if that's a plus for anyone.

Stopped at McCarthy's for lunch after visiting the new York Central RR museum. The service was a bit slow owing to an un-described "kitchen problem", but the food was very good once it arrived. The lobster dip appetizer was excellent, and the half-sandwich and soup or salad special was plenty of food for both my wife and myself. We both... More

This is a great place with great food. The menu consists of so many enticing & unique options. You can be dressed up or dressed down. We dined on the awning-covered patio overlooking the river. The service was great. Our food arrived very quickly. It was a very enjoyable experience. We will definitely return!

I ordered the seafood salad and it had a very fishy smell. Also the restaurant itself had a very bad smell when you walked in the door and the toilets were not flushing properly in the ladies room. I would not return.

We loved sitting on the patio at McCarthy's. We loved it all even more when the server brought our salads and then our salmon in Thai sauce. Good fresh fare served by friendly servers. We'll go back--I want to try the fish and chips.

We are a group of library employees, most of us retired, some still working, who meet here once a month for lunch. The food is delicious and the service fine. They accommodate our needs, whether there are six of us or fifteen (currently twenty-two on the email list). The burgers, salads, mac and cheese, and fish tacos are great. Have... More

This restaurant sits on the banks of the Elkhart river. Offers outdoor seating. Nice "Irish Pub" ambiance. Good beer selection. Pitiful liquors selection. Service spotty. Foods sounds good but doesn't deliver.

Had the Peanut Butter Hamburger - quite delicious! My wife had Asian Chicken Salad - also very good. Service was good. Ate in the outdoor covered patio area overlooking the Riverwalk. Wonderful view. Highly recommend.

We really enjoyed the menu because it offered some unusual foods such as peanut butter hamburger and loaded Shepherd's pie - both excellent. Yes we will return and highly recommend.

Mc Carthy's on the Riverwalk is an unexpected dining experience hidden on the Elkhart Riverwalk. We have been there several times and the staff is always attentive and the food is good. The atmosphere inside and out are a draw for us when we are looking to enjoy a night out with family or friends.
