Fine chicken parm and diner food

The Hill Top Restaurant, though only a few hundred yards from Mirbeau, is worlds away cuisine-wise and ambience-wise. It's a diner connected to a bowling alley. Had dinner there one evening in August 2015, the chicken parm. Very generous portion, decent sauce, classic salad in wooden bowl, plus you... read more

I have been to the Cedar House on many occasions since a young age, and the Cedar House has improved greatly. The past few years I have not been a fan of the Cedar House, but as of today their restaurant is out with the old and in with the new. Service: While dining, the service was quite tentative, and...

The place was packed so you think it must be a good place to eat. You find out, it' pretty much one of the only places to eat at a reasonable price. But, you get what you pay for I guess. I ordered the breakfast special. 2 eggs, toast, hash browns. coffee $4.99. I ordered eggs over easy, hash browns... More

Went there with friends for dinner. Not a great experience. Service was not the best and orders were mixed up. Food was nothing I would go back for and that was the general feel from all of us. Yet we have been there for breakfast and find that this meal is very good for the price. Coffee could be better... More

This is a diner with attached bowling alley. It is everything that Skaneateles is not...no ambiance, no lake view, no gourmet food, no fine linens, no high prices, ...BUT it has good diner food, big portions and very good service. We have eaten dinner here several times and never been disappointed. Lately, I have had meatloaf dinner and chicken and... More

Ok, this is not a fine dining establishment. We get that. We don't care. It's a diner-type place that all the locals frequent. Why? The food is great (our favorite is breakfast), the staff is extremely efficient, friendly and on the ball. We had breakfast there every morning of our stay in Skaneateles, their omelettes are huge, fluffy and very... More

The perfect little leisurely breakfast place. Hot coffee that the server kept refreshed, good home style food and reasonable prices. We could tell this is a place the locals all enjoy, and so did we.

I stopped going here, because of the bad food, and surroundings in this place . But once again my friend had to eat and it was close, I always make excuses not to go here... ordered bacon with toast and had to laugh ,They serve it on a plate made for a teacup. Bacon on one which was so overdone... More
