I am from the area and used to frequent this diner until this past summer. They did not turn the air conditioning on and the heat was unbearable. Now the weather is cooler and I planned a Saturday afternoon lunch with my 95 year old mom, my daughter and grandaughter. The diner was not crowded but the hostess who was miserable would not seat us because not everyone in our party was there. She made a 95 year old woman stand and wait for a table! That was the last straw. I will not be returning.

Since it was just me in the house the other evening, I didn't feel like cooking and went to the Viewmont Diner. Didn't know if I would get breakfast for dinner or a burger. Decided to order the Chipotle Burger. It wa great. Medium burger, fried onions, cheese and chipotle sauce. It was sloppy and delicious. The fries were excellent also. It wa after regular dining hours and there were others there alone. Staff were friendly and knew their usual costumers.

Hire more help. Get dirty tables cleaned up immediately. Serve drinks to customers when they order instead of tallying checks and walking around. Clean floors and pick up food off of floor. Serve food in a timely manner instead of letting it sit back in the kitchen under a heat lamp. Clean coffee pots frequently instead of serving burnt coffee to customers. And for the love of god and your customers, treat everyone the same and stop ogling over men who are dining with their significant others aka wife or girlfriend. Btw lower your prices. You are in the middle of coal mine region, serving basic diner food. Nothing special about it, your place, and food.

Ate there on Sunday morning for the first time in years. The prices were higher than the area in general and the food was certainly not worth it. The days of being an award winning restaurant are long gone. The waitress brought the wrong omelet to my companion. The food was hot and came out quickly but was just ordinary at best. The coffee was bitter and also overpriced. I would recommend the chain restaurants over this dinner any time. The bathrooms were dated and there were no paper towels to open the doors. I would never go back.
