Husband and I chose this restaurant to celebrate our 37th wedding anniversary. We made a reservation, but during the time we were there, only 4 other tables were occupied. I heard the owner tell one couple that this was their slow season. This restaurant occupies on old house so it is long on charm. And the decibel level was low,... More

Since it was a weekday the restaurant was not busy. I ordered a salad with apples, slices of steak and Parmasan shavings. It was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was excellent and the owner/chef came out to chat with us about our meal. My husband and I split a chocolate bread pudding that was wonderful. Unfortunately I have heard... More

What a wonderful meal this was! I had the NY strip which was perfectly cooked and very tender! The owner and cook came out to speak to us after the meal. I asked about the crispy dark coating on the outside of the steak. She would only say that it was a dry rub. It was fabulous!! My husband had... More

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.
