I had been craving prime rib for about three months and finally had the time to stop by this local eatery on one of their advertised prime rib nights. I ordered a rare cut, was told they only had well done, and was served an end cut. When I expressed my disappointment to the waiter, who oddly addressed us as... More

My family usually ends up coming here more or less every year. The food's great. The owners are really friendly. I highly recommend the veal piccata, but pretty much everything is good here.

OK, maybe it was an off night.....We visit MDI every 2 to 3 years in October and stay in SW Harbor. Until this past October, this restaurant would typically be closed for the season just prior to our arrival. Would that it had been true this time. There were 4 in our party and we each ordered different menu items,... More

We had a family of 10 there for dinner with children and elderly. Everyone was very helpful in getting us seated and making us comfortable. They gave us quick service through the whole meal starting with our drinks, water and warm Italian bread. We had a variety of food starting with Bruschetta, Clam Chowder, Salads then for our Entree's we... More

My family loves going to this restaurant and it has been an anniversary stop many times over my parents 55 year marriage. The owner and staff are so friendly, efficient, and helpful especially with a family member in a wheel chair. My husband and I go early to sit at the cozy bar where we have had delicious drink specials... More

I recently had a family get together twice this year at Top of the Hill and love the hospitality that the staff gives you, they seated us immediately and were very friendly. If you like Italian food I recommend going to Top of the Hill and getting their linguine with white clam sauce. The pasta is cooked just right nice... More

What an amazing time, meeting up with my sister and her family for Demuro's Top of the Hill Restaurant closing night. Since we came from a restaurant background, it's always a treat to eat at a hometown favorite location. When you go to a family restaurant, you can expect that the owners will know your names, give you a quick... More

We stopped here on a Sunday when there were few patrons, so we figured service wouldn't be a problem. The young lady who waited on us was very friendly but must have been new, because she needed reminding to bring anything we ordered beyond the entree--water to drink, a glass of wine, bread and Parmesan cheese (included with the pasta)....

This is a canned ingredient place. I last had pasta florentine and they used canned spinach. Nothing here is the least bit creative if you like that kind of restaurant. Service is OK, but that is because they are not real busy. The only high point for them is prime rib when they have it Tuesdays and Thursdays only.

James B NOTHING in here comes out of a can! And we're one of the busiest places in town~I'm not sure how you have come to these "observations", but I think we may have had issues in High School. Thanks for taking the time. More

The food was cold, overpriced and bland. I expected a home town feel but the side room was tacky. The main room was interesting in a kitchy way. The waitress made up for the experience, she was friendly and efficient.
