“Didnt expect it to be such a mess”
Review of Swiss Miss

Swiss Miss
Ranked #2 of 2 Dessert in Harpers Ferry
Cuisines: American
Description: 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

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 duties with that dirty hand. I looked at the sticky, dirty menu and tried to communicate with my friends we should go elsewhere, but the radio was so loud and poorly tuned in that he didn't hear me, and ordered a sandwich. The heavyset tattooed woman taking our order behind the counter was snippity and borderline rude, especially when I didn't order and only got a muffin, which was hard and stale. The ordering process is confusing. The place is sincerely DIRTY. This is gross. Just avoid it if you can. I heard them talking about having just bought the little dessert shop next door too :( my friends sandwich was not horrible but I felt too ashamed to tell him about the dirty cook.

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 of the day. They also have hand dipped ice cream in many different flavors. The day I was there, the flavor of the day for the custard was raspberry. I got a bowl of that with peanut butter sauce.... amazing.

I love this little walk-up. The people are nice, and the ice cream is first rate.
