We have been coming to McCarthy’s Red Stag since the very start of the bar. From breakfast to after dinner drinks, we always enjoy our time. Whenever family comes into town we bring them for a good meal and great live music. The wings are fantastic! Pair them with any of the whiskeys. It makes for a perfect night.
