In this town, there are two great places to dine. The first is at the McCarthy Lodge & Golden Saloon where you can meet locals, enjoy live entertainment, and eat some pub style fare. The second is at the Kennicott Glacier Lodge where guests enjoy a more romantic setting overlooking the Kennicott Glacier.
Dining and Nightlife
Thursday evenings are open mic night in McCarthy. It’s a great chance to rub elbows with some locals and fellow travelers and get a taste for the neighborhood. All are welcome! Bring your guitar, harmonica, and voice – or just your eyes and ears. Occasionally on Fridays and Saturdays there’s a band playing after 8:30 p.m. Be on the lookout for special events that are free and open to the public.
