Pricey for the area but the food was perfect and the staff was wonderful. Im glad my company paid for it because my families budget couldn't eat dinner there too often. The lunch menu is affordable and still plenty of options.

This is a very good place to eat. The Shepherd loaded pie was very good. The place is very good looking and is right next to the river so you have a nice view. Prices are fair.

While traveling from Bethany Beach, DE in route to DeMotte, IN. we stopped off in Elkhart, IN to have a little rest and some good food. We checked into our hotel and then headed to what we thought would be a good choice. McCarthy's was our choice because of the location. The advertisement stated: "on the "River Walk"". Growing up...

I ate at McCarthy's along with some business associates. Two of our group ordered the filet and said that it was prepared perfectly. I ordered the salmon salad and was not as happy with my choice. There was nothing special about my meal, but neither was there anything wrong with it. I just left with the feeling that I should... More

Nice location on the river. We had awesome fried pickles snd we both had the barramundi fish. Yummy. Even the green beans were tender and tasty. Creme Brule for dessert. A great choice. Seek it out

They have quite a few beers and wines and a nice menu. My husband had the Irish Mac and Cheese and I had the stew. Both were excellent! The service was very good. There is seating on the deck, along the river walk. I highly recommend this restaurant!

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend who lives locally, and it did not disappoint. We visited late on a Saturday evening (after a college football game) and the service was excellent. We ordered three different entrees (salmon, stuffed chicken, mac and cheese) and we were quite happy with all three. We had two desserts -- a double... More

Nice atmosphere and great service but food is inconsistent. We came in after a large unexpected concert crowd so they were out of some of the menu items. The firecracker shrimp appetizer was very good, good portions, beer was cold. The ribeye was good, but the potato was a bit cold and hard. Skip the linguine with lobster. It was... More

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
