We made reservations here after an UNC graduation this weekend. Upon entry, our tables were ready and were quickly seated. Our waitress was Anna….who…..well, how can I put it? She made THIS visit…….wonderful!!!! Our party was easily 20+ yet her attentiveness and responsiveness to our empty glasses, drink requests, or plate substitutions….one would've thought it was no more than 4... More

This is one of those spots that gets by on the basis of being a local fixture more than on the merits as a restaurant. Not to say that the quality is poor, rather that if it were in any place other than a college town, where tradition can take precedence over quality. The vibe is friendly and to be... More

Read the positive reviews and decided to check it out. Very cool Brewery in a great location. Even on a cold night the heated patio was comfortable. Service was good and food was creative bar food. Would recommend!

Top of the Hill was recommended to me by a "local" and it did not disappoint. I was told that it was a bit pricey, but I decided to splurge on a quick trip to Chapel Hill. The prices were more affordable than I was anticipating and the meal was wonderful. Despite it being a busy evening, I was sat... More

I've been to this restaurant about four times over the years and while it's fun to sit on the patio and look out over Franklin Street, the food and cocktails are consistently disappointing. I'd say their food is on par with an Applebee's, but the restaurant masquerades as a nicer place than that. I think your best bet if you... More

Always good food, beer and drinks at ressonable prices and the place to experience an upscale college atmosphere with the best view in town. I cannot imagine being a parent of a UNC student and not carrying them and their friends here whenever possible.

A group of us attending a week-long course at the UNC - Kenan-Flagler Business School opted for an early dinner at the Top of the Hill on our final night in town. The Top of the Hill is located near the intersection of Franklin and Columbia, and must be a local landmark - and happens to be located on the... More

We enjoyed our dinner. The atmosphere on the balcony was nice. It was a warm evening but the ceiling fans on the balcony helped. The view from the balcony is the best view in Chapel Hill. Our server was friendly and helped us navigate the menu; and made recommendations that we follow and enjoyed. The portions are a regular size... More
