Tuesday is Liver Lover's night at Hill Top, and if you've a hankerin' for liver and bacon and onions, you can't go wrong here. Tender, moist, liver, crispy bacon, seasonal veggies, potatoes, salad, warm rolls...MMM! There's a new chef in the kitchen, and it shows. The presentation and attention to detail are impressive. If you've got any room left, I... More

We met with the family on New Years and Easter to celebrate last year. Someone suggested Hill Top for both occasions since my mother in law loves their grasshoppers (a minty drink). They had a buffet for both holidays and their selections were less than impressive for the price. We paid $22 for the buffet and were offered less than... More

Our mot recent visit to the Hill Top Inn was for an event. We were seated outside on a beautiful day and enjoyed an outstanding view. The setting was relaxed yet elegant. The dinner was buffet, but the service throughout was excellent. The Bar service was great and a good value, with the owner stepping in to assist to keep... More

Called ahead a few hours before dinner. There was a wedding going on but the upstairs dining room was open. Also a birthday party happening so there was a lot going on. A little bit loud but that was okay. There was an older gentleman playing the piano (keyboard). He was amazing. Playing all from memory. We weren't able to... More

We found this restaurant on trip advisor and made it our final destination today after a very long road trip from Ohio. I ordered the pork chops and my friend got the dinner caesar salad with grilled chicken. The dinner rolls were warm and yummy. My dinner came with a small fresh salad with yummy dressing, fresh garlic green beans,... More

The ambiance was quite spectacular. A view of the valley, followed by an awesome sunset, while sitting at the cozy fire pit. The waitstaff was terrific and very accommodating. The lamb chops were cooked just perfect and everything was just delicious!! Would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

I went to the Hill Top Inn with coworkers after arriving in Elmira for a quick business trip. Surprisingly (or not) it was one of the only restaurants that we had heard anything about. We decided to check it out, and since the weather was nice we opted to sit outside. First off-the view was stunning. You can see all... More
