Wife and I have both had breakfast itemd here in the past but this time I tried the fried flounder and she tried the fried shrimp. To start, portions were huge but both fish and shrimp seemed overcooked a bit. The peas and baked potato I had were both pretty overcooked. We had ordered pancakes and French toast for the... More

Real home cooked breakfast. Awesome service, extremely fair prices, good coffee, home fries like grandma used to make. Lots of cakes and pies, which would be well worth stopping on their own. Going to try lunch/dinner next time.

We were in the mood for comfort food and found this restaurant on TripAdvisor. It was easy to get to, not at all crowded when we were there, and had an extensive menu with lots of choices. The entrees we ordered came out with enough food for at least two people to share each. The beef stroganoff could have actually... More

We just moved to Harpers Ferry from Herndon, VA. But even when we lived in VA, we'd come up to eat here. Even when we didn't need to be in the area for some reason like going to VA Hospital. Large, typical diner menu. Delicious food. Friendly folks. Great for family meals. They recognize and acknowledge us every time we... More

Took my family here for dinner. The menu was huge and promised much, and although more than plentiful and affordable, the food was average at best. My Greek chicken undercooked, and my wife's dinner was just cold. The service was acceptable, but my son did love the cheesecake. I was told that their breakfast is better, but will not chance...

We stopped at the Mountain View after the show at The Old Opera House. We were in the mood for some beef, so we did what we've done a few times in the past. They make a lovely Prime Rib here, and it's just too big for one of us. So, we got the Prime Rib, French Fries, Pickled Beets,... More

My wife and I had the displeasure of eating here and for the last time! I had a burnt dry meatball and cheese sub with warmed over nasty french fries. My wife had a dry western omelet. The manager did take off the bill my food but should of also took hers off as well. She did not hardly touch... More

I can't believe all the negative reviews. I have been eating here for years. The staff is friendly and the food is great. I suspect the negative reviews are from "city folk" who don't know what country food should taste like. They have a great variety. I love the chicken fried steak. Even though it's not a "local" kind of... More
