Always A Favorite

Open during the summer, cash only, they're always great with both outdoor and sheltered seating. Views of the river. Small parking lot. Food is always amazing.

People love this place, me not so much I don't think smoked food is for me . You go up to window to order and wait, seating is outside with view of Connecticut river very nice at night too.

Excellent food! Extensive choices including vegetarian. The pulled pork is my favorite no matter how you serve it.....in a wrap, on a bed of greens, as part of a combo plate, in a burrito, as a fajita, in a quesadilla.....the options so on. Great Mac 'n Cheese made with local Vermont cheddar. Dine outside overlooking the West River or indoors... More

As a vegetarian I usually have to settle for eating a bunch of sides at BBQ joints, but Top of the Hill has MANY creative vegetarian options, even for vegans. I had a yummy tempeh wrap with sweet potatoes, cole slaw, and BBQ sauce. My non veg husband also enjoyed his meaty meal. Very pretty setting, and warm indoor seating... More

We enjoyed the ribs served with baked beans, coleslaw and corn bread. The evening was cool so we ate in a heated log cabin style building. There is also a large patio area which would be nice on a fine day.

I had been here once before and remembered liking the food so I convinced my family to stop here for lunch on our way home from a fall weekend at Stratton.The setting is beautiful, especially in the fall with the colorful foliage. There was a bit of a line but we were able to place our order within 10 minutes.... More

I had the jumbalaya and spouse had fish tacos. Both were very good. The servings were quite large. We had a table with a very nice view of the surrounding countryside. We'll definitely go there again when we're in Brattleboro .
