This restaurant was very close to our hotel so we decided to try them out for breakfast and was not disappointed. The food was good and quick. The service was also good and the prices were fair. They have a few really cute gift items near the register. Would definitely return if ever in Stowe.

I live in Stowe and Mac's is the place for breakfast as well as lunch. Not open for dinner. Can be crowded after 9. Service is Vermont friendly.

I was up at Stowe for a long weekend and decided to try this place after all the hype and positive reviews. I really wasn't that impressed. The food was good but not over the top good. Like other reviews they are busy and have a quick turn around which shows in the food. The breads were burnt and the... More

We have been visiting Stowe since the summer of 92! We ate at McCarthy's then and we never have a trip without a least one visit for breakfast. The menu has everything and the food and service are always great! It has a great small town feel.

Every time we go to Stowe we brunch at McCarthy's. It's a popular spot and doesn't take reservations, but we usually get seats quickly because they are masters at turning tables through quick service. We had four adults, one child, and two babies, and they were able to find a spot that accommodated two high chairs. I had the very... More

Breakfast or brunch at McCarthy's makes a visit to Stowe complete. You won't leave hungry! There are always a handful of specials on the board but favorites are the corned beef hash, the Woodchuck omelet & tried and true pancakes.

We enjoyed a family breakfast here. The wait wasn't too bad, about 20-30 minutes. Our good was excellent; honey oat French toast and awesome Irish potatoes! Very friendly and fast service. A definite visit!

Thank Terri M
