The fact that this is the #2 ranked restaurant in Harper's Ferry on here says a lot about the sad set of choices diners are faced with in this historic, yet gastronomically-challenged town. Maybe it's better when you can sit outside on a sunny day, but we had to sit inside on a cold damp autumn day and it was depressing. A "0" for ambience. How about at least scrubbing the toilet and sink in the men's room once a month or so, and putting a roll of paper towels in there? The food was not bad . . . for what one might expect from a school cafeteria. But let's not fool anyone into thinking this place is anything more than a 3 or 4 on a 10-point scale. And it is NOT a good value unless you consider $47 for one adult and two kids for a late lunch a good value.

Good gyros and French dip sandwich. Each came with a salad that made this meal not just tasty but well-rounded.

This restaurant is on High Street. If you are touring Harpers Ferry on foot then there is no need for a car.

Do not let the outside of the establishment turn you off in to entering. It is easy to miss since it is sort of below street level. You have to walk down several steps. Like previous writers mentioned, if dining on the back patio, they will take you for a short walk through the kitchen. An outdoor staircase leads to the patio level with large potted plants and assorted tables. (PS-You can enter the patio/deck via the street in the back. It requires only one step up but you will have to let them know that you are out there.) Dining area inside is small and has little ambiance. It will not appeal to those looking for that "historic" Harper's Ferry flavor. That aside, on to the food.

We ordered a beef and a vegetable quesadilla. They came with a side salad made of romaine lettuce with tomatoes, olives, etc. The quesadillas were huge! Visualize a 12 inch plate and fold it in half. THAT was the size of the quesadillas filled with goodies and covered with melted cheese on the outside. (Different, but yummy!) We should have ordered a single meal because neither one of us could finish our choices. Cost was $9.99 each. My husband ordered a side of curly fries that were seasoned and crisp and really not necessary because we had to leave a portion of those behind, also. Our total bill with tax and tip was $23.18. A bit on the high side for lunch, but you have to realize as with all tourist sites, you are a captive audience so to speak. Up the street snow cones were selling for $3.75 each and that is just ice and syrup.

Robbie was our server and he was very helpful and attentive. No complaints there! We always had fresh water, napkins, etc.

We would definitely dine there again, but sample something different. Many things on the menu looked inviting.

A friend and I went in search of ice cream after lunch and found this place. It was a bit dingy and old and initially reminded me of 1970s decor, which made it kinda quaint. We ordered two ice cream cones with two scoops each. The prices were great for the amount of ice cream we got (nice large portions per scoop!). The only thing that spoiled the event was the roach I saw crawling up the wall in the counter area behind the service booth; made me check the cherries in my ice cream carefully. We decided to take our ice cream outside and walk around. The cones attracted other visitors looking for a quick treat. Hopefully the bug issue was a one-time thing and not a pervasive problem. The servers were nice and the ice cream worth going back.

4 of us ate here for lunch and the food was very good. you do have to go through the kitchen to get to the outside tables which are under umbrellas but worth it! I had a gyro and a greek salad, excellent. it was my mission to get a smile out of our waiter and I finally did, service was fast and the waiter eventually warmed up! Excellent iced tea too.
