Relaxing casual place

We were staying at the Hampton and wanted a casual place for sandwiches and a drink. Glad we stopped here. It is old and the exterior needs a face lift, however the food and drinks were very good. We sat in the front room and found it to be a great low key place to sit back and relax. Our... read more

The Hill, previously known as the Hill Top Inn, is a local pub serving a standard lunch and dinner menu. Food is well prepared,and portions are quite generous although the prices are very reasonable. The restaurant/bar offer ample seating and there is a small deck for outside dining and cool drinks on hot and steamy evenings. the wait staff is... More

If you don't want to eat at the generic Appleby's or McDonalds' this is your place. It is an older, dark paneled neighborhood bar at the top of the hill across the street from the Hampton Inn and Suites Ephrata at Mountain Springs. The wait staff is pleasant and food is very good. Great burgers and an excellent Pittsburgh salad.... More

I moved to Ephrata about 2 years ago, and met the owner, whom so nicely welcomed me and my 2 other room mates. I honestly don't come here much, but when I do it's usually for a quick dinner or a six pack to go. So, my friend and I decided to come out for drinks and see what "The... More

I ate here upon a recommendation from the Hampton staff & they weren't wrong. The Greek turkey burger was fantastic & really reasonably priced. It's a casual atmosphere & staff were really friendly.

Ok I guess if your there for drinks only. The place REALLY needs a refresh and clean up. Defiantly not a family spot if you are looking to get oway with your kids. Food is really only bar offerings. Will not go back.

We stopped in on a Wednesday night at about 6:00 p.m. to take my father out to dinner since he just moved into the area. We sat down and waited at least 10 minutes for a waitress to take our drink order. She was very pleasant. We waited at least another 10 minutes for the drinks to arrive. There was... More

So glad to be the first to review the new The Hill restaurant (formerly The Hilltop Inn). Of course, I got to speak with the owner about the name change. Same owner. I applaud his move to a more "casual" dining experience. It is what this place needs and is. Entrees are gone and will be replaced with daily specials... More

Heard a lot about this place but never visited. We went for lunch and it was a great surprise. Excellent soups and sandwiches. Great lunch. We highly recommend

We had dinner here one night and drinks another. It is one of the few places open later in the night in the area. Very good food and good environment to enjoy a few drinks too.
