We stay often in town at either the Packwood House or the Sherwood. They include breakfast with your stay, but when we are looking for a more hearty breakfast, we always head to Hill Top. We did this again when we were there in December and glad we did - always tasty, good food, good service. We have never tried... More

Breakfast was excellent - we ordered the homefries crispy, and they were definitely yummy! Omelette was fresh; homemade cinnamon raisin bread was a treat

If you are trying to please several tastes, this is the place to come. Everything is great, and there are a lot of choices on the large menu. Breakfast always served. Warning, don't sit next to the door, burr. Waitresses are very friendly and accommodating. Lots of coupons in papers if you look close.

Food is good, prices are reasonable for the portions you receive! Waiters/waitresses are all friendly, talkative and always make sure you're getting what you want! It's a diner, with diner food. Don't go in expecting fine dining, but you won't leave unsatisfied!

When we are in the Skaneateles area, with family visiting, and when we are just by ourselves, we usually start our day with breakfast, which is good, and a local place for all to have a meal, the coffee is excellent as well the pancakes, and the homemade bread. Good service, good food, yes it is a dinner but price... More

We had breakfast there and it was so subpar. I wished we had stayed home. The service was great the food was lacking.

Stopped here on the recommendation of our hosts for breakfast. Kids had fantastic stacks of pancakes. I had the lowfat breakfast sandwich (the McRyan?). I'm pretty sure it wasn't lowfat but I am sure it was FANTASTIC. I'm a bit of an egg snob and these were amazing. Didn't miss the yolk. Decor here is charming; service was friendly. Ample... More

Our experience started out okay - we liked the daily soup - but it was pretty much downhill from there. We noticed the waiter didn't write our order, and my mom's sandwich was missing the bacon. We tried to track the waiter down, to no avail. Then got another wait staffer to help us. She ended up bringing my mother... More

We tried this place on the recommendation of one of the locals. We went for lunch on a weekday. Wow! What a great place! It is not fancy, just a family diner. It has no view of the lake. However, the food was down home fantastic, cheap, and huge portions. I had a daily special hot pastrami sandwich and gravy... More

Friendly, happy staff, great service, and their food is delicious. The place is old but well maintained. And the price is reasonable.
