good home cooking

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.

Our service here was lacking. We were wanting a good dinner and thought by the number of cars that this was the place. We had difficulty keeping our waitresses attention, to get our order and refills. They did have some fabulous baked items which I am certain would be great. Even had a 10 layer cake!

Menu covers practically any food you could want ,offering a great variety for all of the dining party. Portions are HUGE. I had the biggest piece of country style steak I had ever seen in my life. It and the mashed potatoes were quite delicious. The remaining party had burgers, chicken parm sandwich, and mac & cheese. Pretty standard fare.... More

Our party of 5 had a wonderful breakfast. It was very busy on a Saturday morning. We were seated quickly and our waitress while very busy had a smile and a friendly comment each time she came to our table. Service was a little slow but they had a packed house. We each got what we ordered and it was... More

Breakfast was really good. Very reasonably priced. Servers are a bit flustered and neglectful when they are rushed in a busy setting. Enjoyed our meal and would go back.

Have been to the Mountain View Diner many times with either friends or family. Stopped in for lunch with my wife on our way to Winchester, Va. We both ordered the chili, very good. I had a chef's salad and she had onion rings. The salad was large and very good. The meat was fresh as were the vegetables and... More

After missing breakfast and spending nearly three hours in Walmart trying to get our new phone and internet hotspot up and running we were desperate for lunch. After three days in the USA we were losing confidence that anything like good cooking could be found, but this diner restored our faith. The crab soup was the real deal; genuine home... More

We visited the Diner for consecutive meals. Dinner, breakfast, and lunch. We found all the meals to be homemade style with large portions. The best item we had was the baklava which is homemade. Great experiences!

The value for the amount of food you get is great. I used to like their omelettes and potatoes, but my wife and I went there with my parents last year and they complained about the eggs tasting like Brillo pad cleaner. I tasted it too and they were correct, unfortunately. Haven't been back since, but I wouldn't rule out... More

My wife and I had the dis-pleasure of trying to eat at what we thought was a brand new restaurant called Lowry's in Knoxville MD. All it is the same ole place called Cindy Dee. I have given them a bad review already. All this did was made us fly to Mountain View which is always very good. We had... More
