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

Breakfast: Location good, parking, lots. Ordered french toast, lots on the plate. Tea- cold. My friends said their food was okay,nothing special. Presentation typical, nothing special either. Service, it was a busy morning but we were forgotten a couple of times. Would I eat here again? Nope, I would go somewhere else. Washroom: okay.

Hilltop is your every day eatery, the food is consistantly Adequate, the service depends on who you get and how busy they are (and it gets busy, which is an indication of this places popularity), the prices are very good for this area and the atmosphere is as one would expect. Overall this establishment is what it is, no frills,... More

In an upscale resort town like Skaneateles-where you can eat at some of the top restaurants replete with splendid surroundings-there is a local favorite that on outward appearance seem like a scruffy bowling alley. However, what resides inside, is a local guilty pleasure. A real old fashion diner complete with a sumptuous menu of classic eats in generous proportions at... More

All meals good; breakfast exceptional and at a reasonable price (recommend the Eggs Benedict on Sunday mornings - they are classic!!). Service is very friendly and attentive from all particularly Alicia, Denise and Nicole (they are my favorites). Soups and pies are homemade and truly delicious. If you like good "diner" food at a reasonable price with excellent service I... More

Went for breakfast this past weekend and while the coffee was hot and plentiful, and the pancakes were excellent, our eggs were served almost cold. We did not say anything as it had taken quite a while for them to be served and we were hungry. The place was hopping, definitely looked like a lot of locals enjoy the place.... More

got the morning special: 2 eggs scrambled, with toast and (dry) potatoes; had gotten it to go...maybe would"ve been better as a sit-down. I would give it a second chance, had we stayed longer.

Just had a nasty start for the day. Sent back one breakfast that was cold and lifeless. Waitress apologized with surprise. We believe her. We were not charged for it but are wondering what happened. We had a great breakfast last time we came through. Guess these things happen. Too bad for us.
