I am a long time resident of Frederick County and a patron of the Mountain View Diner. It is sad to see it going down and such a decline as the owner has not invested new remodeling into the restaurant. I have noticed there are missing partitions between booths, where you feel like you're sitting with the next person. There... More

Dear guest, I noticed that you're review did not mention food or service. We respect your opinion even if was solely based on perceived appearance. As if approximately 1 month ago, our booths have not had any duct tape. We are planning an upgade. As an informed consumer, I'm sure you are aware of what all that involves. Not to... More

This is my fave brunch and munch place on the weekends. Even when it's crowded everyone that works there is kind, professional, and go out of their way to be courteous and friendly. Whereas other local places are booked out for 1/2 hour or more this place keeps on trucking and service is prompt but you never feel rushed. The... More

Get the specials that is given each day, it is very good and you will be taking some home with you. I have never had a bad meal but for some reason I have been seeing some bad comments.

After passing this Diner many times visiting in Frederick, decided to drop in and see if it was a classic. If the owners would fix the booths seats and simplify the menu from 100(?) frozen and fresh items to only fresh stuff, their sales would skyrocket - the rest of this diner it is that cool, that great. But today's... More

Thank you for your lengthy review of MVD in Frederick, MD . As I'm sure you know, a large menu is a staple of typical diners in this country. We're very proud to offer the bounty of freshly made, absolutely not frozen, choices for each and every one of our customers. Of course I realize that suggesting that our food... More

We were looking for some real food on the way home from vacation and found this gem when the place across the road was packed. The restaurant was set to close in 30 minutes when we entered with a party of 8. The host quickly seated us and Loren, the waitress, quickly took our order. We had breakfast, a burger,... More

Two huge fluffy pancakes, country ham for breakfast. Wife had french toast that she could not finish. Pleasant waitress. Good Friday morning crowd; lots of locals as evidence by the familiarity with the wait staff. Always good to eat where the locals go. Had a nice conversation with people in adjacent booth. We were just passing through and the place... More

Evidently they didn't have enough cooks when we visited with family, because our order took almost an hour to come out. When it came, they got it wrong for several of us, prompting further delays. The food was acceptable, though far too much for most of the dishes. The waitress was nice and apologetic, but forgetful. What made the experience... More
