Who We Are?

McCarthy's has been a Stowe institution since 1974. Now in its third location, McCarthy's restaurant first started across the street on the Mountain Road, serving simple breakfast to the local ski patrol and those just chasing the snow. Looking to expand its space, McCarthy's moved not far to where the present Thompson's Flour Shop is located. Once again, growing out of its space, in the late 1980's McCarthy's moved to it current location where "Sister Kate's" once stood. McCarthy's restaurant in still run by the original family that opened it more than 35 years ago. Many things have changed, but the one thing that has not has been the mission of McCarthy's. They pride themselves on serving, fresh, high quality meals to locals and visitors alike and creating a welcoming atmosphere to share a good cup of coffee and great conversation.

When you eat at McCarthy's you get more than a meal! We take pride in the quality of our meals, so every dish is cooked to order with the freshest ingredients available. Most of the staff has been here so long they're like old friends. Look around, your neighbors are here, the electrician, a couple of contractors, the landscapers, a lawyer...They know where to eat! 

Welcome to the McCarthy's Family.
