Good Food, Good Portions, Good Service

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... read 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

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
