Family Owned & Operated

Charles “Mac” McGaughey founded MCL in 1950 and to this day is owned and operated by The McGaughey Family, which has now been in the restaurant business for three generations.  MCL is a true family business.

Scratch Kitchen

Our food is prepared in our scratch kitchens using family recipes born on the farms of Sheridan, IN, and served in a cafeteria style. Our kitchens get busy with bakers at 5 am each morning and throughout the day our skilled cooks produce each layer of our recipes from raw ingredients. 

All this effort results in more flavorful, more nourishing food for you to enjoy!

Award Winning Hospitality

Famous for our hospitality, we have won many awards over the years, but the best honor we can receive is a happy guest.  We care deeply about our guests and their dining experience, and we hope you feel the love when you join us.
