We had lunch at McGill's and the food was very good. The hamburger was large enough to split with a side cup of the black bean soup. The burger, fries and soup were excellent. I would recommend this place for breakfast or lunch.

I got some type of breakfast veggie omelete- it needed some flavor. The hash browns and English muffin were good. My hubs got a combo breakfast with bacon, pancakes, etc and he said it was "all right." I'd be willing to check out other places next time. Side note, their wifi didn't work.

My husband and I ate breakfast at McGill's on Tuesday morning. When we walked in, the place was packed but one couple left as we walked in the door. Their table was immediately bussed and we were seated. That's efficient service, something we'd like to see more often. We had slightly different versions of the All American breakfast, a filling...

When we went in, I was expecting just a decent diner type breakfast but was really pleased with the veggie scromlette. It had a ton of spinach, mushroom and fresh perfect ripeness avocado. The hash browns underneath made the first bite delicious. Service was quick and we luckily had no wait. We also had breakfast burritos and kids meals which... More

Ate breakfast twice during our stay and enjoyed each experience! Staff hustles hard to keep the coffee and tea flowing, and the food is expertly prepared. Loved my veggie scromlette!

Had breakfast on Thursday A.M. Wife had eggs and bacon and pancakes. I had bisquits and gravey. Wife loved hers. I liked mine (not as good as my "ussual" at home.) I would go back anyday. Great place for breakfast. I think they served camp 4 coffee, not sure. I did not see people ordering "fancy" coffee drinks but they... More

We travel through CB every year and have eaten breakfast at McGill's every trip. That patronage may finally come to an end. As packed as the place always is, yesterday's offerings were pretty indifferent - to say the least. My corned beef hash was nothing more than some shreds of corrned beef plopped into their normal not-so-great hash browns and... More

We love McGll's for breakfast. The food is always consistent and the portions are great. They have some of the best French Toast and eggs Benedict around. The price is also a plus. Though it can get busy it is always great to be here for breakfast.

We had an early departure from Crested Butte and the only choice was McGill's. What a delight! Delightful server, excellent menu selection and very tasty food. The decor is pleasant and well maintained. Would definitely recommend for breakfast.
