Good food and large portions. Get there early, otherwise there will be a long wait. Restaurant only takes cash though!!!

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!

OK for an average breakfast. Stopped in on a Saturday, and had an order of blueberry pancakes and an order of one poached egg on a dry english muffin. Orange juice was really good, but everything else was just OK. The dry english muffin was burned. Coffee was not spectacular. Maple syrup for the pancakes was real, but came in... More

McCarthy's is one of our favorite places for breakfast in Stowe. Sometimes there is a long line, but it moves along pretty quickly. They have the best belgian waffles - crisp outside and moist inside.

Have been coming here for years, this is a local place that opens late and closes early. There is always a wait as it is very popular during the holidays, we've never been here off-holiday. The food is typical comfort food with nothing that really stands out with the exception of the larger than normal portions and limitless coffee refills.... More
