I've lived in the are for a few years and given this place about 4 tries. The last time I ordered a grilled chicken salad. The chicken was dry and tough and the rest on the salad was iceberg lettuce and a tomato. On previous occasions I've ordered breakfast which was alright but not great. The servers have always been...

So so diner food. Staff friendly and nice. The pies and cakes really make the place. I had the gyro sandwich and not so great, tasted like the preformed frozen slices instead of actually being carved off the spit. Go for the dessert not for a meal.

So sorry that our gyro wasn't to your liking. At anytime you are more than welcome to ask to be escorted to our kitchen so we may show you our genuine gyro that absolutely is cooked on and carved off the spit. The gyro is one of our most popular items on the menu because it's fresh and carved off... More

The pie and cake were not the usual diner quality. Dry and yucky. They look so pretty in the case. Service is slow so be prepared for a long stop.

My family and I have eaten here many times and will probably continue to do so in the future. They serve good small town comfort food in generous portion sizes.

Please accept our most sincere apology for this unfortunate incident. It's also very unfortunate that you waited til now, a year later, to post a review. However, you're so right. The incident with the nail tip really is hilarious. Considering, MVD is confident that the nail tip you spoke of may have come from an outside source. We strictly adhere... More

The Mountain View Diner has been around in Charlestown for decades. Its changed hands but not its business model. The décor updates made it look so much better. The staff servers are so organized and friendly. There is a huge menu, lots of variety and good size portions. The evenings are filled with locals who talk to each other across... More

Checked this out when we stayed nearby. Clean and good eats at a fair price. Had to go back for the deserts, they looked so good! and they were. Friendly staff make you feel at home.

We found the Mountain View Diner by accident and we're so glad we did!! Delicious breakfasts and dinners and big slices of desserts. Omelets full and veggies so big I could not finish!! Turkey meal tasted just like Thanksgiving right down to the cranberry sauce. Service was fast and friendly.

If you do not get anything else here- get the homemade blueberry pancakes-- you will think you are on a lake in upstate NY in the beginning of August-- Everything is great- don't hold back, just diet the rest of the week- it is a true diner- If Guy has not reviewed this one, he should! The first time I... More
