Need a place to go, sit outside and watch wildlife, birds, airplanes, the sunset, a quiet little airport with lots to offer, look no further, here at Nancy's Air Field Cafe PIZZA is cooked to perfection on both Friday and Saturday's. Looking for a beverage to go with the PIZZA that also is available. The pizza dough is a special... More

Nancy's Airfield Café is way off the beaten track, at a small airport in a residential section in the northern part of Stow, MA. Not the place you'd expect to find a great restaurant, but there it is! It's actually quite romantic at a window-side table,with the sun setting over the runway. Nancy herself is there and takes the time... More

I enjoyed the evening recently when a friend and I had apps and drinks at Nancy's Airfield Cafe. The food was OK--nothing great but it was more than made up for by the excellent server and good drinks. Nancy's is a quirky little place worth a visit, and I will explore the menu more rigorously when I visit again.

I must say this was about 5 years ago so things may have changed but we drove a good 40 minutes with the kids because we heard about this place and thought the kids would love to see the planes while we ate breakfast - WRONG. If you have kids you have to sit upfront where the planes are not... More

We've heard for years about the fare at this restaurant. Our first visit should have been the indicator, items on the menu that the cook could not prepare. First visit saved only by the offer of a slice of pie. Second visit...tried the initial order for Chicken Cordon Bleu...it's on the menu. We asked specifically if the cook this visit... More

Yes! Really! Just a few feet from small private planes taking off and landing at a country air field. And the food is excellent! Right now one of their appetizers is mussels in curry sauce. I have eaten lots of mussels, prepared lots of ways, but none as good as these. The curry sauce is just perfect!

What a sweet place right on the airstrip , which of course provided its own delightful entertainment.. if you enjoy all things "flight" related... More

Attended this rather disappointing night. Pros: The special kale pizza was great. Cons: Being accosted with a "voluntary" entrance fee Plastic chairs and tables on a parking lot with blaring rock music. Ugh. Bellowing servers who scream at the top of their lungs the order numbers. Food came out mismatched. Hamburger done 5 mins before pizza. When we finally got... More

Had the best eggs Benedict there. Busy, so you might have to wait a little, but totally worth it. Wide selection on the menu and it's all very, very good. Recommend it to anyone. Take relatives and visitors there.
