This restaurant is not your run of the mill lunch stop. It is over the top in every way. The food was delicious, service exceptional, and the atmosphere was cozy with a nice mix of the old and the new. I had a crab cake salad and my husband had the beef tenderloin. We were on vacation in the area,... More

We were finishing up a three day hiking and biking trip to Mt Cheaha and my husband had looked up Buttermilk Hill Restaurant and decided to head home through Sylacauga Ala. We got close to the end of lunch time but the chef introduced herself and we were seated. It seemed like such a cozy place. One of the older... More

This place is a well kept secret....but not any more! We found this restaurant listed on TripAdvisor and decided to try it out. WOW! The food was excellent, the service superb and the chef is most gracious. I had the red snapper with Parmesan risotto. It was the best meal I had in a long time. My husband tried the... More

Buttermilk Hill is our favorite restaurant. We had dinner there on a Wednesday evening. They take reservations and I suggest that you make them. We had a nice bottle of Pinot Grigio. I started with the soup of the day, chicken quinoa. My wife had a house salad with a delicious balsamic dressing on it. I had seared Ahi tuna... More

Enjoyed the buttermilk potatoes and peach bread pudding in a charming atmosphere. Amy was attentive and friendly. The chef and owner, and her mother, also stopped by to thank us for visiting. Great food and friendly people. Drive slowly when you get close. Parking lot and driveway are hard to see from the road.

Kara, the owner and chef for the night was very personable and did a wonderful job creating a delicious, succulent dinner. The filet was like butter and the tuna was wonderfully fresh. The atmosphere of the restaurant was quaint and comfortable. Kari, our waitress was very attentive with a great personality. She was very knowledgable of the menu and always... More

My mom and sisters are visiting Alabama on a "ancestors " hunt. We went here based on the reviews and were not disappointed . It was a charming old house and the food was great. I got the shrimp and grits which was very good and we split desserts. The bread pudding is a must to try! We went on... More

There are certain things that separate chefs from people who cook food. For me, one of those things is risotto. Chef Kara makes the best risotto in the south. A completely wonderful dining experience. Great decor within an old Victorian home. From salad to dessert (I highly recommend the blueberry bread pudding) every thing was perfect. Tired of overpriced food... More
