Surprisingly good

We stopped by on a day trip to Charles Town. Had plans to eat elsewhere but it didn't work out so decided to try MVD. The dessert display was amazing when you walked in and sold us on the cheesecake which is made In house. Everything was very good, Fay our waitress was very pleasant and efficient... read more

Stopped here for lunch after touring the Harper's Ferry Historic site. Very nice atmopsphere. Seated promptly. Had the tuna melt and the patty melt, and both were very good. Good size portions. Obviously popular with the locals. Only real complaint was that service was average and server seemed to disappear for long periods of time. Desserts looked fabulous.

We ate there this morning. . They were not busy. . server seemed friendly enough but never came back to check on us til we were almost finished with our meal. . Food was cold and not tasty at all. . When we told server all she said was "I'm sorry" and walked away.. we will not be back..

Excellent breakfast. The french toast was delicious. Service was good. My husband's omelet was also excellent.

Place appears to be popular. Must be the food because the service sucked like a vacuum. The waitress waiting on another table dropped buttered toast on my shoe. Even after our waiter saw it happen and mentioned it to the other gal, it never got picked up the entire time we were there. Limited sit-down dining on that side of... More

We ate here several times during our visit to Harpers Ferry: twice for dinner and twice for breakfast. All in all, the meals were consistently good and the staff is very nice and attentive. The restaurant is busy but very large so there was no wait for tables. You can also sit outside on the patio. The meals are not... More

Don't be misled by the number of vehicles in the parking lot: it's not that this place is so good; it's that it's one of the only games in town! Portions are huge but, unless your mom cooked with a lot of lard, the food won't remind you of Mom's cooking. It's difficult to mess up breakfast food but this... More

Nothing fancy but the food was good and more than we could eat. The service was ok. My wife had the turkey dinner and I had country fried steak. Being from out of town we had a little problem finding the entrance off the highway.
