Fine dining in the evening. Burgers and sandwiches at lunch. Hearty Sunday breakfast. Yes, they have a liquor license. No need to get dressed up. Drop in from the sky, or come by road. Either way works well. Nancy often uses local ingredients and presents them in a gourmet manner. Not really a place for kids.

Met some friends at the Stow airport and watched planes take off and land. In addition Nancy has some great items on the men. She is a great host and we had a very enjoyable evening. Nice varied menu.

At Nancy's you get great, fresh food. It comes with a price, but I am a believer in "you get what you pay for". Tucked away at the Minuteman Airfield in Stow, almost into Boxborough, it is truly a gem.

I've been to Nancy's many times before for burgers and such. It's a cafe/restaurant at a small airfield and not a fancy restaurant. I saw their menu for a Winter's Solstice special meal and decided to give it a try having never been there for dinner. I live in Sudbury, MA and for comparison a usual dinner place is Bullfinch's,...

I have heard about this restaurant for years, yet never got around to going. This morning I did (with my friend from California, in tow). We arrived at 10:30AM . . . there was a short wait. I asked about the hollandaise and was disappointed that it is made from a package mix (vs. from scratch). Package mixes have a... More

I live in Stow so I hope this does not sound biased. I have an issue with garlic and it gets very tiresome trying to find something on the menu that does not have garlic in it or as an accompaniment. I have been to Nancy's before but this time I informed them at the time of reservations about the... More

There aren't many dining options in Stow but this one is especially unique with airplanes and ultralites flying around.

Very pleasant to sit next to big windows watching a gorgeous sunset and small private planes taking off or landing while enjoying a good glass of wine and a manhattan. The menu is all specials on Saturday evening. The salmon dish was very good and well presented but the trout was overcooked. Nevertheless a good dinner after the opera.

Yes it was a lovely place to have breakfast....but really...$3.00 for a cup of coffee and $8.00 for a basic breakfast. I think it's way overpriced and the service was terrible. The men's rooms bathroom was all backed up. I would eat at the Over Easy Restaurant before going back to this place.
