Christmas cheer in January

My buddy and I were traveling down to New Orleans starting Jan 4th and our first stop of the trip was in Charles Town, VA. We stopped at a local Hampton inn and were looking for something quick to eat. Saw the Mountain View Diner and decided why not. We walked in, sat down and my friend Mike... read more

Long weekend and wanted to treat ourselves to breakfast and boy was it worth it. The waitress was so sweet and gave great recommendations on what to have. Atmosphere is great, even the customers are friendly they all were talking and making recommendations

This dinner serves home style food with a home style attitude. Great service. Great food. Prices were a big high but worth it. Busy place but great dining. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all good, we kept going back for more. Loved the friendly service and care. Big portions that tasted heavenly. Great family dinner. We will go again and... More

Nothing too exciting about this place. They try to be homestyle but it doesn't work well even with the new management. Too many things on the menu, nothing is really authentic or tastes like it is made from scratch. I feel like I was getting something from a can or the microwave. Salads were horrible, only iceberg lettuce and one... More

Mountain View is the place to go when you want very large portions and lots of starch. (Is it a coincidence that many patrons seem to be pretty "hefty?") That said, if you have enough self-control you can get a pretty good diner meal here. Especially good for breakfast, though the place seems to be full practically any time --... More

Went for lunch with a friend prior to going to Casino as wanted something different than Epic Buffet. Very surprised at the large menu - truly something for everyone. Waitress was fabulous, management came by to ask about things. Clean. We didn't order anything fancy - shrimp basket and grilled cheese - but food was great. Not the greasy diner... More

We went there two evenings in a row and found the place a bit by coincidence. The food is really good and portions are big! Friendly staff and good price and variety. Can certainly recommend it.

My wife and I ate here one Sunday around noon. They were very busy and yet we didn't wait long on service. They have a wide range of food to choose from and desserts that are out of this world. This place gives you an everyone knows everyone feel. I highly recommend if your in town to try it out.
