We met the owner Neil and he was a very nice man. Elise was the bartender and was very nice as well. Super fries were amazing and so was the burger. A good stop for a few drinks as well.

The Golden Saloon is the social center of McCarthy. The breakfast is adequate; lunch and dinner are fantastic and the atmosphere is not to be missed. This place is amazing considering it location. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner here during our visit to McCarthy.

If you're walking around McCarthy, of course you need to stop in the Golden Saloon for a bit. I recommend the outside seating, to enjoy the street view, but that's just me.

The Golden Saloon was full of colorful characters and had great bartenders. Very good food and on our second night there, an amazing band as well. It was extremely busy but ran like a well-oiled machine. We all LOVED it!
