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...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...More

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.

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.

I do not think they have gluten free meals unless you want a salad. I had bad experience with the food there and never return.
