Our party of six loved Grandma's Diner. This was just the atmosphere and food we were looking for on vacation and a visit to nearby Harper's Ferry. While we dined after the typical lunch time, ours was typical lunch fare with a homemade goodness -- burgers, hot dogs, salads, fries, etc. I would highly recommend this as an alternative to... More

I had high hopes when I stepped in but unfortunately it was just an average experience. I tried it again recently and the experience was the same.

Do not order the enchiladas, they are terrible! Chedder cheese is melted on top of it via the microwave which doesn't help the already strange taste/smell! The bathroom floor is falling in and it smells something awful in there! The people are friendly but that doesn't save the taste of the food.

If you just want your old fashion diner food and service this is the place to go. We had lunch here and the sandwiches are very good sweet potato fries are great. Very friendly service and once in a while you will see Grandma

This was our third time and we were all going to have lunch but breakfast was too appealing for my son and me so we gave in and had the big special breakfast. It included a short stack of pancakes or a waffle. I had the waffle but didn't have great expectations since waffles ordered out are usually not real... More

they have great prices, been around for a long while. It has that feeling of a diner that's been around for a bit. Nice family owned business.

We arrived in town and hit the self serve visitors center. The man at the deck couldn't offer a suggestion other than the coffee shop or KFC just outside of town. We did get an iced coffee and then set off to find lunch and then start exploring. This small historic town has a Chinese Buffet, a Bodega, and then... More

Good home cooked food, and great prices! Breakfast is just the way I like it. Sometimes we just order a whole pie to go!

Although I am not supposed to eat this, I had to try it and it was really good authentic hispanic food. Grandma's special hot sauce had the perfect heat for me......other things on the menu looked appealing also
