Below average at best. Stay home and have Cheerios. Omelet and Belgian waffle were boring and tasteless. Atmosphere needs updating.

This was my third time coming to Mccarthy's. I have never been dissapointed. The food is pretty good and the service is even better. Our order got stuck to another one, so it took a while for us to get our food. The waitress came over several times to apologize and top off our coffee. She even gave us a... More

Wow this is a real breakfast diner. Everything you can imagine. And they keep prices down by only accepting cash. There's an ATM in their very small gift shop, but there is a fee. Oatmeal is surprisingly good. Toast made from oat bread is excellent, except too much butter! I'll ask for it on the side next time. French toast... More

When we arrived the place was packed. With a party of 6 it looked like a long wait ahead of us. After a short time (5 mins) the person that was seating us said he did not want to see us wait a long time and asked if would two booths together would work for us instead. We took the... More

Everything from being seated to eating wonderful food. The menu was extensive. If you didn't find something you liked it would be a shame. Will be back!

We had huevos rancheros, a strawberry banana shake, and an order of eggs benedict made with McCarthy's house smoked ham. Everything was wonderful. Complimentary coffee while you wait. Quick service. Host was lovely, waitresses professional. Everyone smiled. There is even a frequent eater card. Must use cash or check to pay. Best place we have ever had breakfast in Stowe.... More

Its hard to find a place in the Stowe/Waterbury area as a tourist that serves lunch. Every place just serves Breakfast or dinner. We went here because its one of the only places that serves lunch. The fries and onion rings were pretty good. I had the Turkey Club and my husband had the Reuben. We split our sandwiches and... More

We had two completely different breakfasts here today and they were both excellent. As important was the ambiance of the place, smiling cheerful staff and the bustle of the place suggests that not only the traveller but the locals are aware of what a great breakfast is to be had here.

On the plus side, friendly place with good breakfast you can order almost all day. While it did not effect us - please note that they ONLY take cash (no credit or debit cards). While it was not a big issue, some people were not thrilled when they walked in and saw that sign.

We had a two late breakfasts on our last trip to Stowe in early octtober. My wife ordered omelets and I just can't resist their home made hash. The ometets are perfectly cooked as well as the hash. The waitress at both meals were very friendly. The place is always busy with locals as well as tourists. They close at... More
