I have now eaten here twice and have not been disappointed. The restaurant is in a beautiful location overlooking the city of Elmira. The view is nothing short of spectacular. I kept saying that I would love to be there on the 4th of July to watch the fireworks because I bet it would be amazing! I indicated a $$$... More

We came for Easter Sunday dinner at 4 pm. Most of the food listed on the online menu was non existant. What was there was heavy on carbs and looked gummy. Nothing looked fresh. They were nice enough to let us go after trying to cobble together a meal -- unsuccessfully. Our server was very nice though and the view... More

Third generation family owned. Breathtaking view of the Chemung Valley and river. Excellent food and service. Al fresco or indoors. It's just one of the best anywhere. Whether you're at the bar, outdoors near the fire pit, or anywhere inside, you'll love the warm comfortable atmosphere and the fine menu. Nothing exotic...just really good food, nicely prepared. Make sure you... More

We were looking for a restaurant in the Elmira, Horseheads area where we could meet up with friends and have a nice leisurely dinner. We decided to try Hill Top for the first time and had a very good experience. The staff were all friendly and attentive. Enjoyed Jeremy the bartender very much. He was personable and made a good...

The definition of a great night out! Dynamite food, breathtaking views and a talented, enthusiastic staff. The hors d' oeuvres were inspired and the salmon was delicious! Thanks for a tremendous night out - 5 stars.

Hill Top Restaurant has it all - a great panoramic view of the Chemung River Valley, just like the one Mark Twain used to enjoy; beautiful sunsets and starry sky; lights of the city below. From St. Patrick's day with its all day celebration through winter months until the Sullivan family annual hiatus, this is the place to be for... More

If you've never been to the Hill Top you're missing the most beautiful view in Chemung Co. Not only is the view great but the meals are too. You can sit outside weather permitting or inside in front of huge windows. Their meals are very yummy. You must try the augratin potatoes! They're to die for. Be sure to save... More

Dependable food and wait staff, and of course a beautiful view. An overall pleasant experience. It is close to the City of Elmira and right off the highway. Plus, the owners are very involved in improving the community.
