This restaurant is OK for a special occasion, or to impress someone, but it's a "once a year" visit. Every aspect of the service was very slow...waiting for drinks...waiting to order food...waiting for food to be served...and waiting for the bill. The dining experience took over two hours. The food was good but dinner is extremely high priced. Atmosphere was... More

Attended for a business lunch. Party of about 14 or 15. Holy Toledo, the service was slower than I've ever experienced at any restaurant in my life. Entire meal took over two and a half hours. Completely inconsiderate and rude to have such absurd wait times for a meal. Building is beautiful and historic looking. Don't go looking on the... More

For our large party of 13 we had a room of our own reserved well in advance. In retrospect 13 people were simply too many for the space/ table provided and seating/table ware was extremely cramped making dinner a chore to eat. We had several appetizers, thoroughly enjoying the charcuterie and artisan cheese plates. My Maine sea scallops were properly... More

My wife and I chose to celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary at the Mount Hill Tavern based on recommendations from some of our friends. Upon arrival, we were seated in a drafty part of the dining room. The receptionist did move us to a better table when asked. Having never been to the Mount Hill Tavern prior to this evening,...

A fantastic dining experience and what they do with lamb is like no other. The desserts are all made onsite from scratch and must not be missed!

We stopped here for lunch on warm Fall day and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food. We opted to sit outside on the patio - the lower patio has a fireplace which would be very inviting on cold evening! The drinks were cold and the food was awesome! Well done and served very nicely. We took our time... More

We have been to Mt Hill many times. This evening we wanted something less formal that did not require a RSVP. We sat in the quiet bar area, had a lovely dinner with great service. A favorite of mine is the goat cheese and beet salad, perfect as usual. Looking forward to the next time.

We had a few lunches and our wedding (!) at the The Mount Hill Tavern and it was amazing. The food is always great. They were very helpful, friendly, and flexible, which made our wedding organization so much easier. On top of that, it is a beautiful setting, lovely historic building, very nice grounds, and the perfect venue for our... More

We were looking for a restaurant to celebrate our anniversary, and what a great choice we made. Mount Hill Tavern's food, service and atmosphere were all perfect. My wife had a crab cake that melted in your mouth, and my steak was done to perfection and was one of best steaks I've had. Our server was very attentive and professional... More

Once each month we have the pleasure of meeting our best friends for lunch... when The Highland Grill at Hershey closed its doors, we were searching for a place, and happily found it at Mt Hill. Both the food and service are excellent, and we truly appreciate the fact that the staff understands that the four of us love a... More
