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.

In 2010 we were on a flying vacation and based at Minuteman Airport for several days visiting the Boston area. We tried to eat at Nancy's but it was 4th of July weekend and they were closed. I think the note on the door was something like "Gone to the lake for July 4th." or something like that. Several months... More

Nancy's is located on a airfieldso while you are eating you can watch the small planes land and take of. For lunch my wife had a fish salad and I had a lamb burger. Needless to say both were delicious. The portions were plentiful, the service great and even Nancy stopped by and we explained to her that we brought... More

We visited for Sunday brunch and had a wonderful meal. The omelette fillings were interesting without being weird, the pancakes were delicious, and the orange juice was fresh-squeezed. Serving sizes were generous and the staff easily accommodated several food-intolerances in our party. The service was excellent. It was raining the morning we were there, but if you go on a... More

We had been meaning to come here for several years based on a number of recommendations from friends, and we finally made a reservation for A Friday night. The short review is that we should have taken the advice sooner, and that we will definitely be back again many times. The staff was extremely friendly and efficient. Orders were taken... More
