We’ve been enjoying meals at Mountain View for more than ten years now. The food is consistently good. The service is also consistently good. My only complaint is that the menu hasn’t changed much in these past ten years. And.... there’s a beautiful view. Plus.....More

You can't beat the view. Half our orders were very good and half rather bland. The service was ok but the server did not communicate answers very well or we would have ordered differently.

This is a great place to dine if you like mountain views. Unless you arrive early, reservations are recommended. My wife loved her rainbow trout, but I was disappointed with my ribeye steak. My steak was tough and had a lot of fat and gristle.
