This "Olde" place proudly sports a name that has been know locally since the sixties. It's prices are reasonable compared to the various restaurants nearby in Maynard and Acton. The food is hot and homemade and the portions are huge. The beer is cold and the drinks are free-poured. Everyone is friendly. It's a warm fun place to be and get a bite to eat.
Favorite Dish: Sirloin Tips are excellent with yummy grilled vegetables. The marinate makes the dish.
This is primarily a breakfast joint, but it also serves lunch. The food isn't anything exciting--pretty basic fare, but it's filling and is prepared quickly. The staff is friendly, the prices are very cheap, and there's an overall small-town amiability to the place.
Nancy's Airfield Cafe is accessible by car or plane. It's a little difficult to find by car but you will be glad you drove around in circles, past the same gas station 3 times, to find it. Owned by the chef, Nancy McPherson, the Airfield Cafe uses only the freshest ingredients straight from New England farms. You can taste the freshness of the food. Nancy and crew are genuinely very friendly, we were even graced by a visit from Nancy herself. The cafe is small but cozy, besides the food the main attraction is the airfield outside. You can watch planes take off and land. The cafe is newly open for dinner, I think we were among the first dinner customers.
If you have your own plane, fly by for a visit.

I'm not sure why this restaurant has such a bloated and ridiculous name. Nothing about it feels terribly "olde," though it does serve mediocre slabs of beef and I guess ordinary beer counts as ale. The food is generic American restaurant food (sandwiches, steaks, bar appetizers), but with prices a little higher and portions a little smaller than you'd get in an Applebees. Stow has so few restaurants--I really had high hopes for this one, but alas...
