Nice local bar. Stick to the beer and fried foods. Avoid the "fancy" menu items and specials. Great location right across from the Hampton inn where I stay.

We have eaten here 3 times and it is fast becoming a favorite It looks like the neighborhood bar but once you taste the food you will think 5 star restaurant The pork chops are juicy and to die for while the baked potatoes have crackly crunchy skin being baked in an oven instead of a microwave! The rest of... More

We were delighted to find this local bar when vacationing at a bed and breakfast out near Lancaster, PA last weekend. Typical pub fare was available but other more creative choices were on the menu as well. The prices are very reasonable and the atmosphere was that of a local bar, where the regulars were easily recognizable.

Service was bad - there was an atmosphere that if you were not a "regular", they could care less about you. Food was average at best, table was dirty when we sat down, drinks were never refilled - it even took forever to get our check to pay. The waitress was busy paying a lot of attention to friends she... More

Very.... rustic. Very nice food, lots of locals, nice friendly service. Terrific value! They have a very diverse menu and have everything from fish tacos to gereek gyros to steak. Lots of specials all the time. A busy bar scene after hours.

Awesome food... the atmosphere is a little divish but man the food makes up for it in a big way. I had the steak and the waffle type fries, would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Cheap drinks, interesting people and standard food all make this a reliable watering hole in the area. It has a local, hometown feel but is welcoming to visitors.

Service was less than average. Seems to be more of a local bar, you would have thought that they would be interested in making some money off of people that are from out of town. Instead they made you feel like you were bothering them. What they have going is that there are no other bars around. That could explain... More

My fiancé and I tried Hilltop after reading several positive reviews. However, this place was a huge disappointment. My fiancé had the Spanish Rice Bowl with shrimp (she's a vegetarian). Three bites in, she could hardly take another bite - the rice was over cooked and had an offensive aftertaste. The side of fries she ordered tasted like they were... More

This place is not much to look at from the outside. Just to prove to you that looks can be deceiving. From first glance you would stay away, but a local resident recommended this place and it did not disappoint. Food and service was excellent.
