We haven't been here for many years. All of our food selections were extremely tasty. Our waitress was very nice and friendly. Our only complaint was that the ambience was a bit to be desired. I do not enjoy sitting next to toddlers on an evening out w/out my children. We happened to be seated next to a family of 4 with 2 noisy toddlers. Not the restaurant's fault, but definitely affected my enjoyment of the evening.

I had eaten lunch there several years ago and thought of it for Valentine's Day Dinner with my wife.
The experience was great. From the moment that we walked in and were seated to the time that we left,
all of the staff were friendly, courteous and professional. The food was fantastic. Every item was prepared
well and was delicious. The clams on the half shell were very fresh, some of the best I ever had. The soup was just right and the main meals were so good. Drinks and dessert was real good as was the bread served with the meal. Our wait person, Heidi was very very nice and thoughtful. She was the sweetest person. All of the other staff members were pleasant. You could see that everyone worked together in a pleasant environment. The prices are very reasonable also. Highly recommended. It has become a favorite spot for us!

The restaurant was absolutely. wonderful! We celebrated Valentine's Day. We both had the special , rack of lamb. The dinner delicious. We each had a dessert, raspberry mousse cake and a touphalo. Again they were yummy.
The service was perfect. We were never rushed. We topped off the dinner. with coffee, at their lounge.

First off, my fiance and I are avid restaurant go-ers. So we like to think that our opinion matters. We come in and we are seated. It takes 15 minutes for our waitress to come. She never mentioned her name to us either. The bread that came out was stale, and getting more stale by the minute. My fiance orderd a seafood dish, which had lobster, and shrimp. The lobster was no bigger than my pinky finger
And he had to pick his lobster out of his hot food with his fingers to get the shell off. Same for the shrimp and getting the tales off. I never understood why restaurants leave tales on seafood, when it's a hot dish. My dish was okay. Nothing to write home about. But that's alright. There was no complaints. But as my fiance started eating his, he started chewing on what seemed like gritty sand. Which in turn, cracked his back tooth. So he started washing off his shrimp in his glass of water, and the waitress never asked if he wanted a new glass. They offered us "free dessert"... But we didn't come for dessert, we came for dinner and not a single dollar was taken off of his dish (Which he ate 3 bites of). So I'm definitely not very pleased with our experience. And also, it was his birthday, which I stated in the online reservation ( which they never even saw).

We each had the prime rib which was on special. While the flavor was good, the cut of meat was a tad bit chewy - unusual for prime rib. The salad was heavy on the dressing, but the Brussels sprouts w cranberries was excellent. We will come back to try it again as we have heard good things about this place. Ambiance was a bit sterile and “banquet hall” in appearance, although everything was clean and orderly. The wait staff was exceptional and very attentive! Well done!

I have passed by this restaurant on many occasions, but finally decided to stop in for dinner. The atmosphere was casual, but the menu choices were varied and plentiful and the wine list had affordable choices. The food was expertly prepared and presented. Our waitress was friendly and professional, and the overall service was outstanding. I will definitely make it a stop again and again in the future

Always a great meal and super service at the Mountain View Chalet. The Chalet is a wonderful place for anything from a romantic meal for two to a birthday celebration. The service is friendly and outstanding, and the food is simply delicious. We chose this dining venue when inviting friends out for a good meal and conversation.

We were celebrating my son and daughter-in-laws 25th Anniversary. We were a table of eight and Beth was our server. She never missed a beat. She was helpful with ordering and was always near if we needed her. Also she put up with my four boys ribbing her. Appetizers were great. Stuffed mushrooms with sausage, clams casino and calamari with marinara sauce were delicious. We loved the prime rib, scallops, chicken murphy, eggplant rolantini and flounder. Every meal was prepared perfectly. From the time we entered the restaurant the owner, the bartenders, servers and bus boy were very attentive; even though they had a full house to handle. I recommend The Mountain View Chalet for any quiet dinner for two to a large party. You won't be disappointed.

Of 4 people, two had the pulled pork sandwich. Both were so tough, they had to be returned. It was stated, on the menu, that it came with coleslaw, which never arrived before they were sent back. Different items were ordered & they were both satisfactory.
For the small number of other guests present, the food was NOT delivered in a timely fashion.
Two meals came with french fries, which WERE excellent. Those meals were put in 'doggie bags', to bring home. Upon arriving home, it was discovered that neither one had the french fries included, even though it was indicated that ALL the left-overs were to be boxed!
Would not return there.
