We were seated immediately. My wife and I both ordered an appetizer and a bowl of soup. Servings were large and everything tasted great. Service was polite and prompt. I found it odd that there was no drink menu offered, so we just drank water.

We've been wanting to try Top of the 80's for quite some time. Tonight we went out for my birthday dinner and decided it was time to give it a try . The food was amazing , the service was excellent and the views are...breathtaking . So glad we finally made the choice to try Top of the 80's and looking forward to going back.More

If you travel the north south corridor on I81, you can not pass by this place. Great food and the best service compliments the scenic location. Been here on two occasions and will stop by on the next trip. The pumpkin spice soup topped with...creame fraiche was good enough for dessert. And unasked a waiter brought another dish of the creame fraiche. This time we shared their turkey dinner and couldn’t finish it. Yum.More

Amazing food. Everything from warm bread, fresh salad, and entree was on point. Decor is lacking, trying to look upscale with white linens but all other decor lacking. Votive on window sill unlit ( not on our table), fake tree in corner with lights unlit,...outdoor signage looks "tuck stop-ish", damaged fencing at patio spoiling view, landscaping lacking, dated chairs. Big shame.. they don't match chef's talents. This place could be a huge winner if they put a little money into it and some attention to detail!More

We visited Top of the 80s for my son’s 18th birthday party. Jody our server was amazing, took care of all 15 of us with great humor and thoughtful service. The view in the small banquet room was incredible.

My husband and I were staying at the hotel attached so we just went to the restaurant out of convenience. Honestly I had pretty low expectations. But it was great!! We didn’t get a lot. I got the clam chowder and Caesar salad and my...husband go the roasted beet salad, kind of as a joke to me because we both hate beets and goat cheese but had this ONE crazy experience where we had it and it was good. Anyway, this was the second crazy experience. He LOVED it!! And he said my clam chowder was the best he’s ever had, and he’s from Massachusetts! 😍 The Caesar salad wasn’t anything special, it was just a normal Caesar. But the other two were above average for sure.More

This is just a nice, old school classic restaurant that's connected to the hotel by a walkway. Great views of the valley and a really good meal for a very reasonable cost.

Ate here for lunch a about a year ago, and I have to say, it was slow, but worth the wait. I had soup and a salad. It was excellent.
