We have been here a few times and it never fails to impress. (except one time with a bad waitress but she is now gone). A nice variety of food offerings. Fish is well done as are the steaks and they even have a very good Shepards pie! The chef is very flexible so don't be afraid to modify an... More

Last night we went out to dinner for my mom's birthday. It was our first experience going out to a restaurant since My son has started the ketogenic diet for epilepsy so I was a little apprehensive at first. I called before hand, explained our situation, and made sure that bringing our own meal and dessert for him wouldn't be... More

We had a nice time, the food was not memorable but not bad either. I would go back again and try something new.

My name is Libracia Jackson and I want everyone to know about this place right here in the heart of busty old Elkhart. McCarthys on the Riverwalk blew my mind and blew my soul. The service was remarkable and the food had me in a foodgasm. I'm not sure if I left that place wet or dry cause I loved,... More

We have been to McCarthy's on several occasions and I've had mixed reviews. The food has been OK at times and good on others. We won't give up and we will try again

Maybe it was just the night I went on but my husband took me there for the first time on my birthday and they were out of everything steak wise and the credit card system was down but they did not say that until we went to pay....I would give it another shot but it was very underwhelming the first...

Stephanie, I apologize for our credit system being down, we had a week where it would be up one minute and down the next, thankfully we finally got that fixed. I'm sorry we were out of steaks, I don't recall this, but it does sometimes happen if we have an unusually large number of people order a menu item. I... More

Went there with another couple for Valentines Dinner. Food was marginal at best. I had a pasta dish that I could have cooked at home better than they did as a restaurant. Wife had fish that was just OK. Service was subpar, dessert came and the waiter didn't bring a utensil with it. When asked for a fork, he had... More

We ate there with some friends a few weeks ago and left disappointed with the meals we were served. As I've told others since "if you want to spend a lot of money on adequate food, this is the place to go."
