During dinner last Friday, just trying to enjoy a nice, quiet meal, we had one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had at any eating establishment. We chose to seat ourselves in a far back corner of the restaurant so that we could eat in peace. In a relatively empty restaurant, a party of four was then seated... More

We go for an all-day backroads drive every Thanksgiving, and every time we stumble on an open restaurant right around turkey time. This year it was the Mountain Top Cafe, with its $14.99 special -- turkey, all the trimmins and pumpkin pie for dessert. The service was excellent, the food was spot on, the location couldn't have been better and... More

We were in the area for our son's wedding and asked for a recommendation for lunch one day. Since we didn't want to travel too far from Wrightwood, this place seemed interesting as well as close. What we didn't expect was the fantastic food and the excellent service. Highly recommend this quaint cafe.

The Mountain Top Cafe has been a go to restaurant staple for a very long time....A very long time. It's a local's favorite for good food and plenty of it. Everything is good....Breakfast, lunch and dinner. The atmosphere is homey and the wait staff greets you like a long time local.

There are 3 communities here on the Mountain and this is hands down the best restaurant up here! In a historic building at the corner oh highways 138 & 2, the food is absolutely scrumptious! From the homemade soups to the gourmet burgers to the great steaks and dollar beers! The service is awesome and this is a quintessential mountain... More

We went and had a early dinner at Mountain Top Cafe on the 138/2. We have never been there but heard good things about. Once you walk inside you get the feeling of a really awesome retreat up in the mountains. Very clean and roomy. Waitress can right away and allowed lots of time to look at a nice menu.... More

The place is adorable and has an extensive menu. I would have like to give it 3.5 stars b/c it does have some stuff to offer. I just found the food to be average, and that is why I went there, after all. The salad was really good, the chicken and dumpling soup was hearty, the mashed potatoes and fries... More

Went here for dinner, and was pleasantly surprised. They seem to have a nice selection, whether it be for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The service was very good as well.

The outside of this place looks like one of the old movie sets you see out in the desert. The inside is just beautiful There is a fireplace with a small table surrounded by antique chairs. High beam wood ceilings. Wood floors. Besides the amazing decor I was very impressed with the cleanliness. It was spotless! The food was great.... More
