We stopped in for a late lunch and the staff were all very nice and attentive. I ordered the chicken margarita salad which came with their house made tequila citrus vinaigrette . It was wonderful! My husband had the bacon burger and said it was really good too. This is a place I highly recommend!

Stopped in for an early breakfast before we hit the trails. The food was terrific. I especially enjoyed their unique version of french toast - outstanding! The staff was friendly.

We ended up here because our first choice for breakfast said they had a 50 minute wait, not for a table but for food orders. One of the other patrons recommended McGills. They were fairly busy but we only waited about 10 mins for a place to sit, which was at the counter. The kitchen and waitstaff were both extremely... More

This seems to be the place for breakfast in Crested Butte! Service was very slow, and they were very busy! Food was average to good, wish they had bagels. Their biscuits were crumbly and hard to eat.

We waited 30 minutes to be seated which was no big deal as they were busy. However, the server was awful, she never checked on us, our food sat for 10 minutes before she picked it up from the cooks area to deliver to us and the eggs Benedict was terrible. Soggy muffin, overcooked eggs and little hollandaise. To top... More

This place is tiny and it gets hot when it is packed full of people. But, the breakfast is really good and you get plenty for your money. They also serve the best coffee ever --- Camp 4 Coffee. It is worth they wait if you have to, and worth the stuffy warmth. Folks are great there. Get there early... More

The food was amazing, the potions were huge, the coffee was stout, Overall the breakfast was one I would love to repeat. The waitress seemed to forget we were there.

We try to make it to McGills when we are in CB. Food is freshly prepared and plentiful. They are usually busy but process orders quickly and efficiently. I like the scrambles with hash browns while my son loves the eggs Benedict. Neither disappointed! Staff is busy but friendly. Make it a point to stop here for breakfast or lunch!

Visited during the Pro Cycling Challenge on the advice of other Tripadvisor posts. After reading that there was often a wait list we were prepared to wait, however it only ended up being about 8 minutes. My wife had the veggie scromlette and I had the breakfast burrito. The vegetarian green chile on the burrito was great and had a... More
