We stopped here after an 8-mile hike at Pilot Mountain. They have an all-you-can-eat salad bar as well as a menu to order from. The staff was very friendly and tried real hard to make us happy. There were flies buzzing around the salad bar and some of the hot food looked old. I got a salad and some of... More

A friend and I decided to try Mountain View on the way back from the annual fall festival that is held in Mr. Airy every October. I had read positive reviews in Trip Advisor and based on those thought that the restaurant was worth a try. Well, the reviews were correct. The food is very good and plentiful and if... More

My husband and I ate here on our recent trip to Mt. Airy and we found somethings lacking. The mashed potatoes tasted instant and the portions were a bit small in regards to my dish. My husband got a house special called Donald's Chicken that he really enjoyed.

I brought my military adult son here and before we walked in, he said he was only eating salad. Then he saw the buffet. They did not make a profit that day. The buffet is extremely generous and varies a bit from day to day. The fried chicken is amazing: if they don't have the pieces you want out, ask... More

There may have been a view of the mountain from the parking lot, but there was certainly nothing much to see out the windows from the inside. Not a problem though. We were there on a Sunday just after noon. It was clear that it was a popular place to eat for locals. There was a pleasant, unassuming atmosphere. The... More

Open a can of corn, doin't season it, pour into container on buffet. Do the same with the french cut green beans, Cook chicken crsipy but let it dry out, Make the BEST peach cobbler. Skip the buffet, order from the menu and get the cobbler,
