  • It is the best food everything is delicous. I recomend the chicken finger dinner or the half chicken dinner. It is clean and the atmosphere is good and all the waitress' are nice except this rude big lady with an accent.

  • Order: chicken finger dinner

  • We knew about the Port Huron restaurant in the U.S.A. but had not been to the Canadian McCarthy's yet, we had a been told by friends it was just as good if not beter, and we concur with them the food was so fresh, not at all greasy, the salad was fresh and the service was great, i might add the place was very busy, so overall this is Sarnia's best kept secret restaurant deff recomend !!!

  • Order: chicken wings , chicken dinners, salad

  • Had a party of 6 and the food was great, chicken was very tender and was better than Port Huron we thought. The chicken wings were huge and overall it was one of the best chicken taste we have had, they need delivery i am sure people would love to have this food in the comfort of their own home

  • Order: 6 chicken dinners

  • On our fourth visit to this restaurant we didn't even get served and walked out. We waited 5-10 minutes but did not see any waitresses, only bar staff. Looks like McCarthy's is more interested in plying booze than serving food.
    While two of our other visits were good experiences, another time the waitress did not place our order with the cook (she blamed him) and we waited for an hour to eat. No "compensation" was offered.
    Port Huron's Chicken in the Rough is far superior to this knock-off.

  • Order: Nothing

  • To be honest, Chicken in the Rough's peices of chicken (legs/thighs) are not very appetizing. Similar is the taste of their fries. They are very dry and stringy. They give you a heaping pile of them which seems like a good thing at first glance but they are not worth ordering. On the other hand, if you order the chicken strips instead of the peices, and a salad instead of the fries, it is a spectacular meal. The chicken strips are extremely delicious. Their salads as well, are also very good. The chicken comes with dipping sauce. I recommend the dill sauce. Excellent.

  • Order: Chicken In The Rough meal. I ordered the chiken strips instead of whole peices and a ceaser salad instead of fries
