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 .

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.

This restaurant is closed as Mountain Gate, it has reopened as Spices 88. I called the restaurant & they told me, they will be keeping some of the favorites of the Mountain Gate, but I guess at least half or more will be asian food. We came to Mountain Gate often in Waynesboro, we preferred that restaurant over the other... More

this is NOT a good restaurant. it is dated, and the buffet is grossly overpriced for the LOW quality of food offered. the word is that an Asian company is now buying it and will SPICE it up. It is NOT the old Chestnut Logs..too bad.
