The Hilltop has closed down. It is no more. Everything in the place was auctioned off. The cattle in front are in other places now.

The Hilltop Steak House closed it's doors in October of 2013. A world class landmark for many years, it went down hill in recent years. The contents have been auctioned off. It will be sadly missed by many. The cows will no longer grace the front of the restaurant, they too are gone!

It hasn't been updated or cleaned in 40 years and shows. Suppossedly it is closing it's doors soon , but we have... More

For the last 40 years, (it has existed for 51 years) I have enjoyed eating at Hilltop at least once a month. When it was announced that it was giving up and closing in two weeks due to a decline in customers, I had to go for one last time. In it's glory days of the 70's and 80's the... More

Just wanted to give kudos to this wonderful throwback of what a steak house is supposed to be. From the ground sirloin steak-chopped steak to the best prime rib ever...the food was fantastic and the service was equal...will be visiting soon on our return trip to Boston.

We just went last week and my boyfriend ordered a ribeye. It was not a ribeye. We sent it back to the kitchen ..2nd one was not one either. After all... More
