Food is good, but most are fried and veg. are coated with sauces. If you are on a diet there is not much you can eat.

Mountain Gate is a local-regional favorite. A Christian family takes great pride in serving a great buffet and great breakfasts. Scrapple and eggs are the best

Our family of 19 ate here for Easter. When I made our reservation they said there would be the buffet and some specials when we got there, the waitress was only able to give us 2 pieces of paper with the specials. It listed the price but not the sides available. I count calories and knew I wasn't going to... More

I simply did not like this restaurant especially what I paid for me and my daughter at $15 per person. I could have went to Golden Corral and only paid about $10 and had numerous options to eat from. There wasnt too much to choose from on the buffet table and everyone in my party said the food wasnt quite... More

This is a restaurant that I believe has changed names twice in the last year. It was originally somewhat noteworthy as a place where one could get a variety of solid American food at reasonable prices in a small town environment. It was called the Mountain Gate Restaurant for a half century but I think the owning family sold it... More

This restaurant sold out to "88" Spices which only lasted several months. It has reopened under new management and is now called the Keystone Diner and the food is quite good. Very similar to the Mountain Gate .

This review is overdue! The first time I visited this restaurant was in July of this year. It was ok then. I went back to the restaurant in late August, and it was totally bad! The food wasn't always hot, the buffet line was never kept up! I complained to the manager, and they brushed me off, no satisfaction. I... More

This was our favorite buffet restaurant in the Hagerstown area. It has recently changed hands and we haven't tried it but have heard they retained many of the buffet items that were offered by the previous owners.
