We head over to Monterey regularly from our home in the Shenandoah Valley. It's a great, steep and windy drive through beautiful mountains. We usually stop at High's for lunch (we've had breakfast there, too). It is always a pleasant stop. Simple, tasty, plentiful, and...More

It was approaching nightfall when we got into Monterey, Virginia. Thankfully, Highs restaurant was still open. Apparently, they close a little early on Sundays. The food was quite good for the price. The owner was very pleasant and I think he needs a little help...More

We stopped for lunch on our way through this charming little town on Rt 250 near the WV border. The place was quiet at about 2 PM on a weekday, and this was no surprise. The server was pleasant and helpful. The restaurant was clean,...More

I took my family on a spur of the moment trip to Monterey, Virginia. For us this is a trip of only about an hour, but the area is magnificently beautiful. We stopped in for lunch around 1:30 on Veterans Day and thoroughly enjoyed it....More

Lovely atmosphere took me back to my childhood. Decent prices but the quality of the food and the presentation was quite disappointing. Only two places in town for breakfast and the other place was a pub. Come to see the old volcano mount and the...More

Food fresh, the atmosphere makes you feel like home! Staff is friendly! You get what you pay for plus some. I absolutely love the open faced roast beef sandwich..covered in brown gravy served with mashed potatoes...have always ordered it ever since I was a kid!...More

Outstanding "small town" diner with excellent food. Service was good. In a town with limited choices, especially on a Sunday evening, this is the place to eat. No complaints!

New owners have spruced up the place and serve real food - and the best food in an otherwise dismal dining town. Many D.C. residents spend a weekend here and can't find info - won't know the place finally has edible food. Please check out their mountain trout - homemade desserts and breads, fresher food than this town has seen in years!
