Great Food and Viewing

Always had a very good breakfst and lunch there so we decided to try the dinners. Nice menu made it easy to choose from. The food was excellent, the service was great and even Nancy stopped by to say hello. Also fun to watch planes take of and land.

Off the main road at the local small airport, the setting is very pleasant with gardens outside the front door. Staff is welcoming and service is good. I wish the food had been a bit better. My salad came with Gorgonzola cheese, walnuts and nothing else. Pretty basic and on the small side. My friend's omelet was good, but the... More

I and a friend got to Nancy's during a busy lunch period and were waiting patiently in line to be seated when a couple walked past me and my dining partner toward the bar area. The hostess saw them and seated them despite their being third in line to be seated. When the hostess came to seat me and my... More

Breakfast at Nancy's is delicious! Order anything and it will be very tasty. I ordered a special that had buiscuts and gravy, bacon, and an omelet. Simply delicious! You can also sit in a room with windows that overlook the airport landing grounds. Great experience! Perfect for family, friends, business, etc.

I went to Nancy's Airfield Café with 2 cousins. One was a cousin I had just met who is a 4th cousin and the other I've known all my life. They both love planes so we had a window seat to watch the planes take off and land. I had a very nice "Plane" burger, one cousin had the Chicken... More

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,...
