Their breakfasts are huge and so so so good. We stayed on the mountain so we only ate here on the day we had to leave. There's a bunch of great little breakfast/lunch spots in town that would almost make it worth staying in town for. I wish McGill's had a location on the mountain so we could eat there... More

My wife and I enjoyed one of the best breakfasts ever on New Years Day at McGill's in downtown Crested Butte, Colorado. The service was splendid, the food was yummy,and the coffee was very good at this quaint little breakfast nook. My wife ordered the 'Scromlette' which was a mix of eggs, potatoes, cheese, onions, peppers all whipped together hot... More

Food was decent, but a very long wait. Not well equipped to handle "peak season". Worth a look if you want breakfast in town were locals like to eat.

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
