Top of the Hill is a staple for me. They are a totally outdoor, seasonal grill. I give them a very good for they're delicious barbecue and especially they're blackened catfish. Try it. The view is great and the people are very friendly. They don't require it but please leave a tip... they deserve it!

My daughter had her wedding reception at Scott Farm in Brattleboro and the food was catered by Top of the Hill Grill. Best wedding food ever! Sides were baked beans, cole slaw, mac 'n' cheese, and cornbread. The mains were Vermont-hickory smoked pulled pork and quartered chicken. Everything was absolutely delicious but the baked beans and cornbread were phenomenal.

A friend took me here during my visit to Brattleboro. I ordered the catfish over cajun rice & I can't say enough good things about this place -- the food is top notch. It's so good that I'm finding the time to write reviews on both their fb page and here! Top of the Hill Grill is now one of... More

Top of the Hill Grill rivals some of the Southern BBQ I've had. A must have when in Brattleboro during the summer. They should feature this place on the Food Network!

BBQ done right! Wow, this was a pleasant surprise. We took the ribs and sat outback, nice view and pleasant surroundings. Nothing fancy here, but if you appreciate great BBQ smoked meats - make it BBQ in Brattleboro.

A group of us travel to Maine each August for a weekend of lobster and motorcycling the coast.Of course, we take the scenic route through the mountains to get there and the Top of the Hill Grill was a discovery many years ago, that has remained on our itinerary. This year is no exception and we introduced a handful of... More

I found myself in Brattleboro, VT around lunch time and felt it was time to revisit an old favorite, the Top of the Hill Grill. I pulled in at 12:15 with a lunch crowd beginning to form. There were about 8 folks in line prior to myself and I was ordering in less than 7 minutes. The staff I had... More

Based on the appearance of the place from the side of the road, and the way BBQ sauce invariably has sugar as its second or third ingredient, I was not hopeful I would be able to find anything to eat compatible with my strictly "no table sugar" regimen. But we were meeting family there, so what could I do? I... More

We used Jon's "Top of the Hill Grill" as the food star of our recent Vermont wedding. Multiple visits to "TOHG" had convinced us that Jon was more than up to the task of cooking for our 200 guests. Pulled Pork and BBQ'ed Chicken were the order of the day... but really, all of the barbecue dishes are great. The... More
