Freindly, fast and delicious

It was nice to walk into a bustling, clean and friendly environment after our disappointing stay at a local resort. The service was great and the food was fresh, hot and delicious. The homemade corn beef hash was really fantastic.

We read great reviews, and were disappointed. The food was ok. It was basically just a diner with a fun vibe, and that was about it.

Pancakes were yummy. Didn't taste like your usual pancakes--more like corncakes which we all liked. French toast and home fries were also very good.

We were up in Stowe last week from Florida for a big family get-together and stopped into McCarthy's for lunch before heading up the mountain. The Philly cheese steak was out of this world, as was the veg noodle soup my wife had. On the day we had to head home we stopped there for breakfast. The raisin bread french... More

Wanted to have breakfast at a local place and this was nearby our motel. Great selection and big servings. Friendly service with a smile.

Having a timeshare in Stowe since the '80s, we've been frequenting McCarthy's for years. A restaurant visited by the locals, we look forward to enjoying their breakfasts and lunches. The waitstaff is pleasant; the food is good and plentiful; the restaurant is clean; and the prices are reasonable. We will definitely return in the future.

McCarthy's ranks as one of the best breakfast experiences ever for me. Great menu selection and very friendly service from experienced staff. The chef prepared our meals precisely to our orders. This is a long time business in Stowe offering great local foods. This is must visit for breakfast in Stowe!

I could not play golf today so we decided to head to Stowe for a walk on the bike trail, but we needed to eat lunch first. We always enjoyed the restaurants on the Mountain Road, but decided to try McCarthy's. We where glad we did as our lunch was fantastic. My turkey Ruben was equal to any I have... More

Stopped here a few of weeks ago and everything was great. The waffles at the next table looked even better than my FrenchToast. Did I say that mine was great.
