I admit it - I am a "Frozen Custard Fiend." Wherever we travel, I'm looking for at least one spot that can deliver a delicious, flavorful, smooth and creamy custard. After an afternoon in the blazing heat at Antietam Battlefield, followed by noisy tourists filling the baking streets of Harpers Ferry, we stood in the considerable line at Swiss Miss.... More

Such a nice old fashioned burger and ice cream joint with a personality! The staff was really friendly as well! I had a turkey burger which was amazing! It was seasoned perfectly, juicy and very flavorful. Just what I needed after bike riding! The hefty serving of shoe string fries was perfectly crunchy, and the sweet potato fries were rich... More

We looked at a couple of places before deciding to try Swiss Miss. They had a lot of options including hand-dipped ice cream, soft-serve custard, sno-cones, sundaes, and milk shakes (we heard people raving over the peach milkshake made with locally grown peaches). We got a large frozen custard - raspberry/vanilla swirl. It was huge and under $5.00 including tax.... More

The frozen custard is wonderful. We often drive to Harpers Ferry just to get this treat. Service is great.

Great food but not expensive. The chicken salad was the delicious as was the pulled pork. The service was great. Exceeded our expectations as it is a very small deli with a lot of ice cream!

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!

I have never responded to a review (good or bad), as they are extremely subjective. Everyone has an opinion and everyone has bad days...on both sides of the counter. Yet as the owner (as well as my manager) we make it a priority to address any reported issue(s) immediately, as we take great pride in our customer service and the... More

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
