Just before we hit the hotel in Charles Town, we stopped by this Diner to have a little snack. We're supposed to have a little bite but hubby ordered way too much. I'm pretty sure the place is good for breakfast but I'm reviewing their dinner menu. The soup was ok but crab cake entree was different than most. I... More

Great meal and experience. As always the portion size is incredible - turned out to be two meals! You can't go wrong at Mountain View.

I have this negative view of diners from ones that I dined at in the past but this one really surprised me. The food was great. The portion size were more than I expected, the food was piping HOT and very very tasty. Would definitely go back again.

Our first experience here was great. Service was good, food was tasty and plentiful and desserts were amazing. Our last visit here was almost the exact opposite. Service was slow, food was not very fresh tasting and it made us not want to go back. Now we have to go back one more time to see if it was an... More

We were traveling on business and decided to try the Mountain View Diner. The service was good... The waiter was being trained but his trainer was right there with him and he seemed quite confident. I ordered a Cobb salad which was very large and had generous amounts of everything that goes on a Cobb salad. I was disappointed in... More

There are so many items available on the menu. They even offer breakfast all day. Portions are pretty large and splitting meals is viable. Some meals come with sides or side salads, which are good. Lots of yummy pastries and pies. Unfortunately, we had no room for dessert!

Made the order of falling for the $20 one pound New York State. It did way a pound but only a few ounces were edible. The rest was gristle. The soup, salad, and potatoes were fine. The food that my colleagues was considered OK, and the prices were quite reasonable. We're going to try it for breakfast.
