Very disappointed... Expected a lot more considering it has the #1 rank in Brattleboro. Brisket sandwich had a lot of brisket but it was very dry and has no smoke flavor... This could have been hidden with some BBQ sauce but they only put on a minuscule amount... Also had the Mac and cheese... $7.95... I've had better M&C from... More

We had dinner at the Top of the Hill Grill while visiting family in the area. I love bbq; but, I wasn't impressed with this meal...nor was my husband. We both had pulled pork with baked beans and cole slaw. The pork was dry and the flavor was so so. I would guess that the beans came out of a... More

What a find! Read a recommendation in a travel book and went for lunch. We had smoked turkey breast, brisket, pulled pork plate and sandwich. All dishes were some of the best I have had; ranks right up there with barbecue in Ft. Worth. Beautiful view of the valley on a crisp fall day. Big portions at reasonable prices. The... More

So we were driving along and we noticed the large crowd at this roadside grill, and we just had to see what everyone was on line for. Well the pulled pork was out of this world delicious , and the baked beans were fantastic! The Mac and cheese was melt in your mouth delicious and it was made with Graften... More

I have been a fan of Top of the Hill for years. It has delicious food, a great scenic view of the West River, and friendly staff. This is a seasonal and casual place. Most of the seating is outside, with a small building with some indoor seating. Order and pay at the window, get a playing card, grab a... More

Last weekend we had dinner at Top of the Hill. It was a lot of fun. The food was excellent. The atmosphere very congenial. Very nice Fall view, as well. We had been meaning to try Top of the Hill, and I am so glad we did! We had fish, ribs, hamburger and all were delicious. When you are in... More

As a local, we come here often (probably more than any other place in town) and love it for a casual, delicious meal. Personally, I love the barbecue items with their sides, the shader burger, the roasted roots and the fish sauce (on everything.) My husband loves the chicken enchiladas (enormous) and the vegetarian fav is the Heidi Wrap. There's... More

The ambiance is stellar: picnic tables overlooking a valley lit up by the sunset! Unfortunately, the food was nothing to write home about. My smoked turkey was plentiful, but lacked almost any smokey flavor. Sides were good enough though; slaw and baked beans. Not big on plastic utensils and paper plates either -- bring your own!

The Top of the Hill Grill overlooks a beautiful valley and has a bunch of tables outside: it's really laid-back and relaxed. The food is all really really good. We had perfect Mac&Cheese, tender pulled pork and immense burnt ends. The sides were superb: coleslaw, juicy cornbread and porky baked beans. We wanted to eat every last bite but the... More

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and have to agree with the other reviewers. Really good meat and sides. Excellent sauce and great views.
