Hearty, reasonable and fresh is a best description of the breakfast fare at this classic diner. We were visiting relatives and had breakfast here twice, both times we were pleasantly surprised. On the first occasion I had one egg Benedict with Greek stir fried spinach and freshly made (not from frozen) fried potatoes. Another diner had the traditional 2 eggs... More

Large diner with generous portions and good service. We particularly like the Greek offerings. Menu is extensive with something for everyone.

We had another great breakfast at the Mountain View Dinner, I can not say enough good things about there omelets, home fries and bacon all are perfect. I had not been there for a long time and I had forgotten why I always refer to it as one of my favorite restaurants, nothing fancy just really good tasting food. When... More

I went on a Friday night with a friend and my son. When we arrived the man who I guess was supposed to be a host looked at us with NO greeting just asked "How many?" I said 3 and he just walked away. We assumed we should follow and he sat us at a table with no dividers between... More

We ate here as we were leaving Frederick. There was a good variety on the menu. I ordered a chicken kabob on a bed of rice. It was more than I could eat! It was also very tasty. The atmosphere was nice, they were playing oldies from the 60s & 70s in the background. We will go back when we... More

A favorite haunt of my 88 year old Dad, we often find ourselves here at any time of day or evening to enjoy a great meal. The menu is unbelievably varied, from breakfast with a local specialty scrapple, to a huge shrimp salad sandwich or even a greek gyro - everything is prepared when you order and served piping hot...

We stopped by the other day for lunch at the Mountain View Diner. It is a typical diner environment, padded booths, chachki decor, etc. I actually like typical diner decor. Our server, Tuesday, was great. Very friendly and attentive. The problem was our food. My daughter ordered a kid's spaghetti with tomato sauce. It had a very strange after taste... More

Been going here for years. They have really good breakfasts! And there other food is pretty good. They could use a major renovation and pest control services. My wife and I saw a cockroach walking around. They gave us one dessert for hush money lol. Won't not go but not first choice.

The food here is pretty good. They have a menu that provides a wide variety of different foods. Sometimes I think that causes the food to just be pretty good and not great. The service can be very good or just OK also. We like to go in this restaurant for a quick bite, we don't tend to linger.
