I recommend skipping all the chain restaurants when you travel and find a local place that will give you an experience as well as a good meal. This place is a great stop. Parking is a big problem, but it's a neat little place. You wait in line to place your order which is taken by any one of their... More

We were looking for somewhere to eat after our daughter's triathlon. Drobr past this and turned around. Didn't look like much but smelled wonderful. The pork carnitas lunch was great! Daughter had the local grass fed cheeseburger, wife had ground chicken sliders, and son had burnt end sandwich. The food was fantastic and the ladies inside were great. We were... More

The location sets you up to thinking WOW, this is going to be great. Nice seating outside, nice cabin with a wood-burning stove for those day with a little bite in the air I ordered the brisket. It was tasteless. My friend didn't fare any better with her meal of chicken. so disappointed I didn't even finish the meal .... More

Stopped here before heading back home after a weekend trip to Rock River. Great location on the water, very simple place - deck with picnic tables, tasty food. We each ordered a pulled pork sandwich and got cole slaw and beans for our sides to share. I should have asked for extra BBQ sauce as my sandwich was too dry... More

Stopped here for some BBQ. Loved the seating options and the view over the valley and river was really nice. Food was good, lots to choose from. Took a while to get as it was busy and orders were made as they were ordered. Even tho some of it was prepared in advance!, it seemed, it was still warmed/cooked and... More

I am having a difficult time deciding what to write. Service was "ok" as was the food. I would not go back unless I was with a group that really wanted to go. I guess I feel I could prepare the same food at home and it would taste better.

I'm usually a little disappointed with BBQ - too sweet, weird spices, whatever. But Top of the Hill DOES NOT EVER DISAPPOINT. Everything is cooked to perfection and I personally really like the sauce they use.

The lady that took our order was very helpful. We went and found a seat outdoors over looking the river. It is so high up that it seemed like dinner was in a treehouse. The food was ready in 6 or 7 minutes. Food was awesome

Had a pulled pork BBQ plate and a beef brisket BBQ plate. Wow...so much food! You definitely won't leave this place hungry! Excellent service behind the counter. Fast & friendly during their lunchtime rush. I'm picky about BBQ sauce and there's was spot on. Wish there was a place like this around home! Nice view also :)

Thank jcraig10
