I love to go here when I can eat on the patio. I wish they had a larger variety of meals though.... Very limited menu.

Limited menu but very tasty. Pricing has creeped up and the value is decreasing if you don't consider the beautiful river side setting during the warmer months.

This restaurant has a great atmosphere. It is so pretty inside and over looks the river. And I was here in the wintertime. I can't wait to go back in the summer and sit on the patio. The food is very good. My husband had a steak and I had a pasta dish. We were both very happy with our... More

We went for lunch and found everyone to be very pleasant and the food was very good. There were three of us and each ordered something different and each enjoyed our food.

Melt in your mouth lollipop lambchops. Nothing else needs to be said. :) But there is a lot more. A few stand outs are: family dining, riverfront patio, (equipped to be enclosed AND heated), gorgeous intimate bar, private dining room, open window kitchen, exceptional service and food its a cant miss.

I am here at least once a week. Most definitely a hidden gem in Elkhart. Beautiful atmosphere, amazing service, and the food is second to none. With vast menu options, I can come here without fail and find SOMETHING to satisfy me no matter what kind of food I'm in the mood for. 5 stars!!

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.

Thank Justin H
