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."

Our mccarthys burger comes with a whiskey glaze on it, some people find it to be a little messy and prefer it on the side. I apologize for the slow service, was it during the day or evening when you were here? More

I don't go to restaurants often because I have celiac disease, which makes it difficult to find items to eat. McCarthy's on the Riverwalk has a great gluten-free menu that is truly gluten-free, and DELICIOUS! I had a lovely salad with steak and then creme brulee. And gluten-free beer, what a treat. Plus, the restaurant has a very nice atmosphere,... More

Had a professional group meeting in the meeting room here. Very accommodating staff, good service, excellent food. Not the cheapest place in town, but a nice meeting facility for a small group (20 or so). I had the fish and chips, which were really good.

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.

Thank Sally S
Callie C, Manager at McCarthy's On The Riverwalk, responded to this review

I can't wait for the warmer weather either! We try to have a selection of chicken, beef, fish, salads and even lamb on our menu, but if you are referring to the lack of sandwich type items on our dinner menu, we will be adding more of a selection of those soon! You will have to stop in and check... More

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.
