Rude owners...wriped 4 straws from 3 year old hands when he was quietly playing with them at our table and put in trash with words r waisting our straw sipplies" when i dared to speak up that it's not nice way to treat a child they told me to leave and that they don't need me business. Parent beware!

When visiting Harpers Ferry one must stop at the walk-up window at Swiss Miss and order the soft serve frozen custard. We were there just after Christmas (2013) and they were only open on the weekends and only serving vanilla. Even though I was hoping for a vanilla/chocolate swirl I was more than happy with the vanilla. A small is... More

Can't speak about the prepared food as we didn't order any. Can't speak about the service because we used the walk-up window. But I can tell you that the line on the street was the longest of any eatery in town and probably because of the ice cream. South Mountain Creamery is a local favorite - all natural, farm-fresh milk... More

We were excited to eat here until it took over thirty minutes for hotdogs and ONE order of fries. Then this sloppily dressed guy comes out and acts annoyed when we didn't immediately respond to him shouting our order number. We wanted ice cream, but couldn't give anymore of our money knowing we could have picked any other place. If... More

We were in Harpers Ferry for 2nd Annual Harpers Ferry Bouv Walk and wanted just a quick snack. Our group (4) had a kraut dog, corn dog, soft pretzel and drinks. Food was ordered at the counter with drinks served at the counter. Food was served promptly. All of the food was very good. If we are back for 3rd... More

We were drawn to Swiss Miss because of the sign that said they were now serving South Mountain Creamery. The menu was extensive with a lot of dessert and non dessert options and lots of flavors. I chose a chocolate dipped ice cream on a cone (why hold back when on vacation?) and it definitely hit the spot. It was... More

This is the best ice cream shop in town by far.... we've been to both. They give you a huge cone for just a single dip. The raspberry chocolate chip flavor should not be missed!

Definitely DID NOT get the feeling of, 'a captive tourist in a national park', where the food and the service is usually sub-par. The quality and quantity were not what I/we expected, as we have frequented several national park cafeteria styled places, where the thought is usually, 'your just getting something in your stomach'. The food (burgers/sweet potato fries) was... More

July 5 was very hot and humid, so the ice cream business was fast and furious! Their soft server raspberry/vanilla swirl was very good. Disappointed that they wanted to charge me full sunday price for a squirt of hot fudge, which I did not get. Sundays are option for soft serve ice cream or regular scoop ice cream. Limited seating...

So it seems like the rave reviews are for their ice cream - I just assumed their lunch fare must be decent as well...well, we wen't there for lunch and had to wait 15-20 min even though we were early (around 11:45am). The food was far less than what I expected and the dining room was cramped and had plenty... More
