Comfort Food on a Rainy Day

After a fall weekend at the beach, we were heading home in a driving rainstorm - and starving! We actually got off the Pilot Mountain exit to eat at "Aunt Bea's," since we were in Sheriff Andy's area, but it wasn't what we were looking for. The Mountain View advertised a lunch buffet, and we were... read more

It is nice, clean and cheery; and the service was quick and pleasant. However the food was the point of the visit. The fried pickle appetizer was huge, poorly coated and limp; needing more fryer time. The soup was OK but nothing exceptional. The country fried chicken was good in a pretty average way.

This is a good place if you are in the mood for diner type breakfast, lunch or dinner. They have a nice buffet and you can also order from the menu. Good service from the staff.

I ate dinner here and breakfast the next morning. You will be very pleased with the quality and quantity of food that you receive here. You will not go away hungry. I have found a new place to dine for all three meals, lol, when I go to this area.

We ended up staying overnight in Pilot Mountain and instead of traveling to Mount Airy to eat, we ate at Mountain View. I was highly surprised! I had baked spaghetti and my husband had the grilled tenderloin. Not only do you get ample portions but the food was absolutely delicious. Also the service was very good. Everything was perfect. So.much... More

Food is really good! I have worked in the area and have visited this place several times. Breakfast, lunch and dinner have always been good! The only issue I have with the restaurant is the tremendous smell of mildew when you first walk in the door. The front entrance is carpeted and the smell will almost make you lose your... More

Thank you for the review. We are aware of the issue and have been addressing it. In Jan of 2014 we completely removed the drywall in the front of the building and a room in the basement. We understand the concern and are working to correct the issue. More

We had supper here and we liked it so much we went back for breakfast. Of the two meals, breakfast was excellent. We will be back the next time we are near there. A very friendly staff.

Had breakfast here. They have great biscuits. They are light and fluffy. The cook does not know what 'scrambled hard/well-done' means. The eggs were runny. The sausage gravy is okay, just needs some seasoning they are bland and had to put lots of pepper on it. The bacon is great and flavorful. Sausage links are greasy. You cut into them... More

Due to all the bad publicity from the North Carolina Department of Transportation ripping out the bridge at the Pilot Mtn./Hwy. 268 exit, and the negative impact the absence of the bridge is causing local merchants in the area, we decided to try out Mountain View Restaurant as a show of support. This was our first visit. The "Saturday Night... More
