Diner Reviews
  • "McKay's was perfect for our Anniversary celebration. We had the steak dinner, which was cooked to our specific request. When we are in the area again, we will be coming in for sure. Thank you for making our evening romantic and lovely."

  • "McKays, next to the Radisson Hotel, is a good choice if your are attending an event at USC (as we were). Our server was super, the calamari appetizer was delicious as were our main courses--but our party of three had two different desserts and both were subpar, especially for a pricey restaurant. it was a tad noisy but still ok for a conversational level. We've been here before and will dine here again -- but they really need to work on the desserts."

  • "Hard to find decent food in a nicer restaurant near USC. Fast food abounds, some of which is tasty."

  • "If you are in a hurry, this is not the restaurant for you. Great ambience and food, however, expect to wait for the food to be served. The parking validation is helpful. Nice comfortable lounge area with large TV screens. Great for the sports enthusiast and on game day."

  • "Service was excellent! Food was very good. I chose the muscles and they give you plenty for an appetizer which I had as my main course with a side of vegetables. My friend had a delicious steak burger! To top off we split the Mud pie brownie that was delicious! It was not noisy as previous diners had stated. Probably because it was early and not a sports crowd that night. It was a nice evening on our way to the Taper."

  • "Great for a pre-Galen Center event or a USC Trojan fan. Hamburger is good... Service is challenged pre-game. Festive crowd."

  • "We had dinner at McKays prior to the SC/UCLA basketball game on Saturday. The place was jammed with Trojan fans. We ordered drinks and our dinner and we were served and ate in plenty of time to get to the game. The waitress did a great job getting us our order in a timely fashion. The restaurant was buzzing with fans going to the game and it seemed everyone were served in a timely fashion. Our Greek Salad and Burger that we split were both delicious."

  • "We went to McKay's before a UCLA - USC game at Galen. Parking in USC parking facilities, $10. We had a reservation, essential for game night. I had the hamburger, very good. DW had the chicken sandwich, which she reported as a little dry. Service was good."

  • "We, absolutely, loved our lunch. The Lobster Roll was heavenly! The dessert, both the Creme Brulee and the the Mudd were scrumptous!"

  • "McKay's is a very convenient meeting and dinner place. the noise level is a bit high to hold a conversation is you have a group larger than 4. the food and selection is excellent, but a bit pricey."

  • "Awesome birthday celebration lunch. Chef Mike was on fire! All of us enjoyed what we ordered and will be back again!"

  • "McKay's is an enjoyable locale at USC. A hospitable and enjoyable dining experience when visiting the campus and wanting to have an "adult" meal off campus. Food selections are ordinarily excellent."

  • "Great spot for Breakfast! Always quality service and food!"
    Dined on 11/25/2013
  • "McKay's was a good choice for an adult dinner in the USC area where quiet restaurants are somewhat sparse. The food was mostly good, but one of our party found both dishes he tried to be over-salted."

  • "Great place to go before a USC event. Well organized with quick service."

  • "Great for lunch if you're in the area. Food is good and not too expensive. Parking is free in the parking structure behind the restaurant."

  • "Arrived on time for a noon reservation. Lovely restaurant, nearly deserted at lunchtime on a Monday. After almost immediate initial drink orders and fairly quick delivery, we waited nearly 30 minutes to place our orders--even though we were they waiting for our 5th person (who arrived 25 minutes late), the staff might have asked if the rest of us wanted to order. We then waited another 25-30 minutes for our food. When it finally arrived, two of the five orders were wrong (salad instead of fries, wrong bread on one of the tuna melts). Our actual eating time was rushed, as several in our party had deadlines. Not a relaxed dining experience!"
