Food great, Parking not so great!
Well prepared food, fast service, perfect to go to before any events at Staples or USC. The only drawback? Parking is terrible. If you're lucky to find anything within 2 blocks!

Loved the Lunch at McKay's
We wanted to lunch at a nice place near downtown - McKay's is wonderful - great location, on Figueroa, near USC. Good parking and it's free if you say you're having lunch at McKays.
Nice menu - lots of variety, from salads to sanwiches and entrees, too. Friendly service, nice atmosphere, moderately priced and the food is delicious. I definitely recommend it, and I will be back!

The food was excellent. Two
The food was excellent. Two of us had fish (salmon and sea bass) -- great sauce on the sea bass. Third person had a pork chop which was cut very thick. I think two thinner pieces is better rather than one thick piece. Can enjoy the flavor more easily than fighting with a large piece to chew.

Quiet and tasty
My husband and I are staying at the Raddison at USC and our first night decided to make life easy by going to the hotel restaurant. It was very quiet--maybe a little too quiet as there were only a few other diners besides ourselves--and the service was pleasant and efficient. We both ordered pasta dishes and have no regrets. The "Shrooms" dish was particularly delicious, although not as good leftover. The portion sizes were large enough that we both brought some back for a late night snack. The prices could have been a bit lower (about $16-$20 per person) but the overall experience was enjoyable.

Quiet and sophisticated
I needed a place where I could take my 82-year-old mother, whose physical limitations make stairs and crowds unpleasant. In a college neighborhood where senior citizens are rare, McKays fit the bill perfectly. Seating was ample, waitress was patient, noise level was low. Too bad X-factor happened to be filming right next door at the Galen Center -- traffic and parking were nasty. But inside McKays, an oasis of calm. And the chicken & waffle sandwich -- a revelation!!

Good food, lobster roll and the fish special were very good. The desert well that's another story, Banana Foster is GREAT and the others were just as good.

Dinner with friends
McKay's was an excellent place for meeting with friends at USC. It was quiet enough for holding a conversation and the service and food were great.
