We certainly didn't expect to find a fine-dining venue in remote McCarthy! We had a wonderful dinner our last night in McCarthy. They were serving a three-course meal; we enjoyed pork four ways as an appetizer (house-made bacon, pork butter on crostini, carnitas, and pork...More

Eating at this restaurant was an unexpected pleasure on both nights of our stay. The menu was interesting and tasty. We were very impressed with the chef Chris who made sure that my husband could enjoy a gluten-free option for every course.

Truly fine dining in a remote corner of the state. I admit that I was skeptical of whether this restaurant would live up to its billing. But, I was wrong. McCarthy Lodge and Bistro was terrific! Attentive service and casual attire. Most importantly -- the...More

Our party of five had the most amazing meals at the McCarthy Lodge Bistro. I've traveled the world and eaten in many fine dining establishments so I wasn't really expecting this to compare. Our whole party was blown away by the amazing food we experienced....More
