Locals & Gamblers Seem To Like It, but ... Ahh, no big deal

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... read 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.

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
