Went there with another couple to celebrate a special occasion. The kids meals have a lot to be desired. Ordered on child spaghetti and it really didn't have any flavor. The other child had chicken tenders with fries that were cooked from frozen. I expect better quality food for the price you pay. Adult meals are okay but nothing delicious... More

Sorry Maricela that you were disappointed on your latest visit to MVD. Unfortunately, you did not say what you had to eat. Our always freshly homemade food is reasonably priced and extremely large portions are always served. Perhaps while ordering, you didn't notice the prices next to the food items on the menu. So sorry if that was the case.... More

We went there for brunch and I really was hoping for something better, the soup was bad and the wrap was too, the french fries seemed like from the day before!

We stopped at the diner for dinner on a whim before going over to the Casino to see a show. Our server, Wendie, was great and very attentive. The food was great and very reasonably priced. The desserts looked amazing but we passed on that since we had leftovers from our dinner. We'll definitely go back on our next jaunt... More

I assume this is a family owned restaurant. It has food like my mom would cook! Also has a bakery with great cakes and pies. Every time I've eaten there, the food was very good. Great prices and large portions of food! Great meatloaf, country fried steaks and pork chops… Not a place to eat if you're on a diet!... More

Just before we hit the hotel in Charles Town, we stopped by this Diner to have a little snack. We're supposed to have a little bite but hubby ordered way too much. I'm pretty sure the place is good for breakfast but I'm reviewing their dinner menu. The soup was ok but crab cake entree was different than most. I... More

Great meal and experience. As always the portion size is incredible - turned out to be two meals! You can't go wrong at Mountain View.

We've been here s verbal times. It is right across from the racetrack. We go for the fresh homemade soups. A different one everyday.
