This place is a real jewel. We visit six to eight times a year and the food is always great. No frozen heat ups here all home cooked and delicious. The portions are very generous my Mom and I order one dish and share. The staff is fantastic and very welcoming. At Halloween they all dress up.

This was my first time to this restaurant and I very much enjoyed it. The food was very good, the service delightful,and the prices reasonable. I had the eggplant Parmesan which was prepared very well and there was enough of it for two people. Between the main course with accompanying salad, soup, and spaghetti, I couldn't begin to eat all... More

The kitchen area is and has been invested with cockroaches - crawling up the walls, crawling across plates, the floors - everywhere. "Why" are they still operational? Not only confirmed by employees, but also, personally saw them.

Sadly, some disgruntled employees have a very difficult time moving on by spewing lies and venom. We wish you well and hope you can find a better way to spend your life. More

My family and I ate here for lunch. The food wasnt too bad and the service was decent and the portion sizes were great. Wasnt too jappy about the employee nodding off outside on the bench in front of the front doors in their work uniform. Not sure we will be going back.

Thank you so very much for your compliments on our food and service. And, another big thank you for dining with us. As for an employee "nodding" outside on a bench. That employee had just finished working and was off the clock and very tired. As far as we're concerned, a hard working employee that just got done working has... More

The worst aspects of this diner seem to be seasonal. In my personal experience, one little bug on my plate goes an unfortunately long way. I must have visited after some infestation because the kitchen received more than one returned insect-related dish. That aside, the food definitely looked good but I did not put even one bite in my mouth.... More

Joshua, I will not thank you for your disgusting review in which you unnecessarily insulted our customers by calling them derogatory names. We have always respected all of our customers no matter who they are or what they look like. Your assumption that several people returned plates of food with insects is absolutely an untruth according to our 3 managers... More

The service was good and the place was clean, but the food was not good at all. We ordered different things. The food was overcooked and just not good.

MVD apologizes for any food that you felt was not cooked to your liking. We take great pride in the fact that all our food is prepared fresh daily. I would greatly appreciate it if you would let me know what you had to eat so I may correct any mistakes that we may be making. Did a manager offer... More

Mountain View Diner is a decent place to stop if you like plentiful portions and are not extremely particular. Old school service with a smile! Breakfast is my preferred option, but there are always a plethora of daily specials and soup de jour. The location is perfect for those stopping in to play the ponies or visiting the Casino. For...
