It was National Fried Chicken Day so naturally I had to drive 120 miles to Evansville to The Hilltop Inn! They have the most incredible fried chicken!! Crispy breading with moist, tender chicken underneath - LOVE IT! If you're in Evansville, get yourself to The Hilltop Inn!

Eat here often. It's a classic. Great food. Delicious pies. The decore is just a part of its charm. A nice break from the everyday chain restaurant.

Great place to eat/drink. Established in 1839 and famous for the brain sandwich. One member of our group tried it. All food was good, and the adult beverages were well priced.

Arrived in Evansville late on Friday (930 pm) on our way to Louisville. Hungry and not wanting to go to a Dennys or Applebees, I asked Ms Garmin to recommend a nearby restaurant. She came up with Hilltop: I must admit we were not enthused when we saw the place but we were welcomed and the food was great. Did... More

Ate here today for the first time while visiting a friend in Evansville. This is a VERY unique place, built as a stagecoach stop in 1839 - dripping with atmosphere and ambience. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Service was great, very attentive, our waitress kept our drinks refilled and table bussed even though they had a busy lunch crowd. Very nice... More

Growing up in Evansville, I have many memories of this place. I ate there again Friday, Feb. 1 and must say that the Brain sandwiches are still the best ever.

This is a really great old style tavern where food and drink and good environment reminds you of an era that has passed us by. Superb feel inside this place, and great food, drink, and service!

Visiting Evansville from England we chose to have a family gathering here prior to departing for the UK. There was 12 in our party including our newest Great Grandchild of 4 months. It seemed that everyone ordered something different, just to be kind to the chef, yet it all arrived together and very quickly considering the place was packed out... More

We visited Hilltop for the first time on a Saturday night and loved it. This is old school comfort food in an old school dining room that was a great change of pace from chain restaurants. Most of the other diners were locals and the place was packed. Fried chicken was awesome, as were the German fries (potato options include... More
