I enjoy catching breakfast here during the week with friends - always friendly service, promptly served, and in a down-home manner. Prices are very reasonable - the homemade muffins for breakfast are not to be passed up! Ask for it to be grilled -- yum! The only thing missing is a gluten-free option for toast/rolls/bread. If you are passing through,... More

This is by no means a a classy place but is just an old fashioned American Diner. Bacon, eggs, hash browns, corned beef hash, and omelets. The food is good, the portions large, the coffee is good, hot and never ending. The prices cannot be beat and the waitresses and staff are very friendly with big smiles. When you need... More

We continue to go back because my Grandmother likes the chicken salad and it seems to get worse every time. Every waitress we have had acts like we are bothering her but we only see her to order our food, she delivers it then delivers a check. Forget if you need anything during your meal unless you are one of... More

The food was good with pretty big portion sizes especially for the price. The fruit and vegetables were very fresh too. The waitress was very friendly. we will visit again before we head home. Great place.

Driving by, it doesn't look like much. We went for breakfast one morning. The service and food was better than I had expected. We went with our kids and happily there were other kids there. Child friendly is a plus! The service was quick. Would go back on our next visit.

My friends and I always stop here when we are in town. The food is good and it is very reasonably priced. You don't have to wait in long lines if you are here for any events like the other restaurants and the service is very good, they make their own soups unlike some of the local restaurants. I got...

I've been going for 30 years, and will as long as it's open! Typical small town diner, family owned and run, Polite staff, good food, very reasonable prices.

Hill top is a diner type restaurant with some good, solid options for lunch or dinner. The patty melt is very good. Good coffee.
