Hilltop Bar and Grilll is about 3 blocks off of the main road in Oscoda. Very good hamburgers and people very friendly. It is kind of dark inside as it is a bar. Good service and worth the trip

If you have not had the Bluegil Fish platter at the HillTop, you are missing out. Neighborhood Bar with pretty good food. Try it All! They always have drink and food specials during the games. Friendly Staff and Fair prices.

Stopped in here after desperately trying to find a decent spot for lunch in Oscoda. Glad we did, great burgers made fresh with fresh ingredients. Great northern Michigan vibe.
