I have been to this restaurant several times now, both as part of large groups in the private dining room, and with my wife. The staff has never disappointed. The food has always been impeccable, and the service friendly and prompt. I would recommend them to anyone in the area.

What a lovely place to have a bite of lunch, my husband and I went for lunch while we were visiting Elkhart to see a concert at The Lerner. This was in walking distance from the theater. the view of the river walk was very beautiful.

My last annual visit to Elkhart included a trip to McCarthy's. It was the worst mistake of my trip! The food was absolutely horrible and ended up with food poisoning that lasted 3 days (which the heaving while throwing up caused excruciating pain throughout my body due to my lower back condition). I first had the Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna... More

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

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
