Very good food. Nice wait staff. A little dingy but it's off season. I had the shepherd's pie. Which was a pot pie. Hubs had a burger. Good choice of draught beers. Bartender didn't do a good job on my black and tan (shame!) We would come back and try the boxties.

McCarthy's is the traditional Irish Pub right down to the Irish grub & beer list. The portions are gigantic! The best shepherds pie you have ever had.

Coming back from a funeral in Toledo, we stopped in to McCarthy's. Decor is warm and inviting. -lots of TVs around but placed well so you don't feel invaded by screens. Ate in the pub area. Waitress friendly and helpful, food and prices VERY good. Service quick and efficient. Will return!

I visit this restaurant while on business travel every summer. Love the chips and dip, patty melt and roast beef sandwich. The food and service is always great.

McCarthy's is a great local Irish pub. The food is good and the beer is great. I recommend it for an evening out. Sometimes the service is a little slow but it's worth waiting for

We have fallen in love with Port Clinton and as such, we have been visiting Port Clinton every once in a while. The day before New Year's Eve we were in town for the Walleye Drop the next day.

One of the few restaurants that stays open in the winter in Port Clinton. Not fancy, but good, honest food which our English friend says is just as good as the real stuff across the pond. Excellent selection of beers on tap.

Everything about this restaurant is outstanding. The menu chooses are many. The soda bread was the best I have ever had. All of the food was delicious. The servings are plentiful. The staff was helpful and friendly. The establishment was clean. The prices are far.
