Very dated, felt dirty

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

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.

We were in Ephrata, Pa. unexpectedly on New Year's eve and asked at the hotel on arrival around 6:30 p.m. where we might be able to eat. They suggested we try the Hill Top Inn across the street. I called ahead to be sure we could get in and was assured we could order from the regular menu if we... More

Food was just OK, and was advertised with signage as a steak house. One steak offered and service was just OK as well

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!

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.
