“Good food, fast service”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

Went to the Viewmont Diner for breakfast on the weekend. Food was good, and the service is fast. From the time we ordered the food was on our table in 5 minutes. The wait staff is not very attentive, we got the check with the food. My husband's coffee was refilled twice yet my tea was ignored and I have to ask for a tea bag not just more hot water. The place really needs a good cleaning and an update in appearance. It looks more run down everytime we go. If you are on the go on a busy day I would still stop in for the food.

“Good Diner food with Generous Portionsn”
Reviewed October 29, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

You don't go to Viewmont for Ambiance, but if you like a varied menu where nearly everything is good and nothing is bad. If you like good service and generous portions at reasonable prices. Then this is the place for you. we often order the greek salad.

“Poor food and staff”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

I would never touch foot in this place again. The food is poor at best and the staff will say sorry and that's it. Don't expect a refund even if they don't come out with you total order but still charge you! Avoid this place and go elsewhere.

“Sadly, this eatery is on a down hill slide!”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

I was the first to review Viewmont Diner almost 2 years ago. In contrast to 2011, the restaurant is now unkempt and in dire need of a good interior sandblasting. The food is still OK, but certainly not what it once was. One of the things this eatery once had going for it was an adept & friendly staff and low staff turnover. Most of the familiar faces are gone and it now seems to be a revolving door for waitresses. The waitpersons rarely appear to be happy or enjoying their work. All the aforementioned are classic signs of poor management. Hopefully, they'll get their act together before it crashes. This place was once great and still has potential.

“Nice Diner Food”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

The Viewmont Diner is great diner type food with a flair they have some Greek influenced foods, my favorite it the Greek Salad. Nice breakfast's and the portions are really big. Easy on and off of I-81 so if you are driving through the area defiantly stop here.
