We ate breakfast here after staying in wattstull inn. The food was good and priced reasonable. There was noone there so it was very quiet. The hot chocolate was just out of the package, but everything else was great

Stopped here with two (very well-behaved in public) young children and were "greeted" with the welcoming we would have to "wait a while" and when I asked how long that meant I was told to "give them a few minutes. 5 minutes." We were fine with the wait but not with the unfriendly approach. Saw the next couple with an older child leave too. The next party walked in and was seated immediately. We hadn't even made it out of the parking lot yet.

We live in North Carolina and drive home to Massachusetts about 2 times a year. Every time we make this long drive, we stop for breakfast at this place. It's always the same: never more than 1 or two other tables there, the same waiter that folds origami boats for the kids, and unimpressive but predictable/consistent food.

PROS
It's right off the highway.
Its affordable.
Family friendly.
Quick service.
Hot coffee.
Clean bathrooms.
Amazing view.

CONS
Not an adventurous menu.
Not a lot cooked from scratch.

As long as we keep making this drive, we'll keep stopping at the Mountainview!

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food at this restaurant. The service was good too. Not bad for a small town.

The waitress was extremely nice and we gave a generous tip because of her. We can't say the same about the food. We each had a different chicken dish and the chicken was rubbery. It's kind of hard to describe. The taste was good but the texture was funky. The dessert selection was limited and it was still early in the evening. This restaurant is very convenient to the Wattsull Inn and it would be nice if they gave a discount to guests.
