There were 4 of us and we shared several items so that we could taste more things because so may items sounded interesting. The Lizard chips were excellent and I can't say enough about the Thai grilled salmon. My daughter loved the edamame burger and her roommate really enjoyed her flatbread - the avocado and cheese one I think.

With a nice view looking out over the downtown area I really enjoyed dinner. I received excellent service provided by the staff. I started with the nachos, which I highly recommend, followed by the French onion soup and the spinach salad. All three items I ordered individually and each item was prepared remarkably fast. Yet all three dishes were delicious... More

This is one of our favorite date night spots. Food is always tasty, love trying the different beers. Topo vodka is amazingly good! We've also always had good service. Heads up - No reservations on game nights.

This restaurant has a fabulous roof/outdoor seating area that looks over Franklin Street (the main road around UNC-Chapel hill. Fantastic views of sunsets and comfortable seating for dinner or drinks. Also lots of indoor seating if you prefer. Food is quite upscale for "bar offerings". Beers brewed on the premises (tours available as well). Decent prices, esp for the alcohol.... More

For some reason Top of the Hill (Topo) is considered a Chapel Hill classic. I've eaten there several times, mostly to take some visitor so they could enjoy the view from the rooftop. Unfortunately the food is only average at best and the choice is quite limited. The beers are ok I guess. I really hope that a place with... More

We picked this locale for a gathering of friends / co-workers meeting for the first time. The location is great, service was very good. It was our server's second night and he had to deal with a group of 8 adults and 6 kids -- no problem. The hostess, however, seemed perplexed as to how to accommodate our request for... More

Fine dining? No. Fun? Yes!! Grab a table outside, enjoy the view and a brew(or 2). Rhymes aside, menu typical American w comparable prices, food and service fast and decent. Atmosphere is pure fun lovin' Tarheel!

We were directed here after a college visit. It was very hot so we ate inside. I imagine it would be nice to eat out on the porch if the weather was nice. The food was average and really nothing to complain about. Our server was nice but horrible about coming by to check on us. We sat with unfilled... More

The shrimp and grits was great. This is what I ordered both times we went when in town for work. The view was good from the outside seating but very very hot and our ceiling fan wasn't working (June visit). When we returned in July we asked to sit inside. The spinach dip appetizer was probably the best spinach dip... More

We expected pub fare and actually had a truly delicious meal from salad to beef tenderloin to outstanding beer on a special at only $3.00 per glass. We couldn't have asked for a more attentive and upbeat waitress and the views of the sunset were delightful.
