We came into town for a weekly meeting and usually eat at Potomac Grille, but they were closed, so we walked to Swiss Miss to get lunch. Inside there was a broom and dustpan just paying on the ground. I noticed the "cook" wiping his nose with his hand (the waitress called his name "Tom") and he continued about his... More

Service is quick and prices are cheaper when compared to establishments like the Potomac Grille, but nothing really special. Stopped by after the dining room had closed, but was able to order through their service window. Tried cookies n cream ice cream, was very good.

Great ice cream in unique and delicious flavors. The girl scooping our ice cream was great. The serving for the price is excellent. Grab a scoop and meander around Harpers Ferry. It is truly a treat!

We've been going here for years and they never disappoint Cindy can have 20 customers and still the food comes out amazingly and as timely as could be expected for someone working by themselves. A++++ in my book always.

I took my grandson on a walk on the C&O Canal, and crossed the train bridge to Harpers Ferry. On the first street you come to, across from the Train Depot, is the Swiss Miss. They have every type iced dessert you could want, in every shape and size. They have homemade custard, and always have a freshly made flavor... More

We were in their establishment sitting in the chairs next to the door waiting for ice cream. The manager did come out immediately with attitude, the group of 3 NEVER refused to pay the bill he just wanted the tip removed and he would decide on the tip he wanted to leave. At that point the owner/manager, began raising her... More

We very patiently waited for 45 minutes for our food on a very busy Saturday. There were only 3 of us. As our meal of club sandwiches and fries finally arrived, we heard the manager screaming at walk up customer. Our waitress seemed embarrassed and apologized. As we got our check we noticed gratuity was added. We were unaware that... More

Hi, I (not the manager) respond to very few of these due to their subjective manner. I own the staffing issue, as the city has forced down everyone's throat, a long approved street construction project right in the middle of our short peak season (was always supposed to be done off-season), hence causing thousands in lost business and a major...

The 20 minutes we were waiting for ice cream the owner was very rude, including raising her voice at one of her other customers because he was questioning the automatic gratuity they added on to his bill. They were only a party of 3 and no where in the restaurant did it say gratuity was automatically added. I would avoid... More

Hello... Please, I need someone to contact me immediately. I DID NOT submit anything to anyone stating that the location is closed...and that status needs to be changed immediately. The town is already going through some disruptive, poorly scheduled construction, and now this major 'business impacting' issue on top of it. How can this happened, how is it allowed to happen, and an investigation needs opened immediately, to see who/how they did it. Thank you, Keith Marks 240-457-2438
