We ate here at lunch on Saturday so they were very busy but it was worth the wait. We had the chicken Cobb sandwich with battered fries. The food was so good the wait of 25 minutes made it worth it.

Food is good, not great, but the battered french fries are very good. Service time is very slow. With only two other tables, we waited 30 minutes for sandwiches. Another slow wait for breakfast food. My uncle's cheeseburger was cooked with the paper still on the cheese. Not too tasty. The sandwiches and breakfast were good, but I feel there are better at better prices other places. Kitchen easily accommodated split plates. Yes, it is expensive in CB, but $10 for eggs seems pretty spendy. It's clean and bright but not much atmosphere and the dining room is loud. The building's history and the current owner's building restoration is a good story. McGill's has the largest and most creative assortment of breakfast offerings, but be prepared for the cost and wait.

This is a very popular place for good reason - great food served by great people in a sparkling clean environment. You might have to wait for a table most days, but they have a system and it works well. On the "could be better" side, the dining area is crowded, cramped and very noisy - sometimes it's difficult to hold a conversation or hear the waitress, and you can't see the amazing scenery outside. The restaurant is located in the center of the old town on the main drag with plenty of free parking nearby. Crested Butte has fantastic atmosphere year round and this is a great place to experience it.
