Top of the Hill Grill is a great place to go for outside dining. The menu is diverse, but the Ribs are my favorite. Perfectly done every time, you can really count on great food the way you like it. If there were any negative, it would be that with the popularity of this great place, the wait can be... More

Great BBQ food. Great staff. Interesting seating areas. Kind of a picknick setting. But also indoor seating for colder days. Place is always packed. But food comes out reasonably quick. Only down fall is they close for the winter. Would be awesome to have access to this great food year round. Over all. Great experience and great food.

We went on a Saturday evening. The line to order food was about 15 people long so we called in an order and picked it up. We got the full rack of ribs plate. The ribs were tender and perfectly cooked. The sauce was tangy and not too sweet. The plates come with beans and coleslaw, both of which were... More

I love it. Get a pulled pork wrap and ask for extra barbecue sauce and extra napkins. This is the best. Settle down to a table with a view to the west at sunset, or relax in a hammock, and ENJOY. I never get any sides because the wrap is plenty. This is the real deal. We are so lucky... More

Was working in Vermont and had the opportunity to try out Top of the Hill Grill. My boss is from Louisianna and knows true Cajun cooking. He had the Burnt Ends (he currently lives in Texas) with a side of Andoin Sausage and I had the Jambalaya (I'm from Chicago). We were both very satisfied. There is a lot of... More

This is a order at the window, wait to be called to pick up your food place. There is an outdoor sitting area, one area covered by a tent, big deck and smaller place I think you could sit inside, separate building than where you order, we never made it over that far. Food was good. One mac and cheese... More

I just love the cajun beans and rice with cornbread. My wife still loves the Heidi's wrap. Both are vegetarian options. However, for the carnivores, many options exist! Love the setting!

Been here several times over the years traveling thru VT. Would be worth it for the setting alone - outside overlooking meadows - but I would come for the food alone, even if inside without windows. This is REAL food and BBQ. The food is fresh, interesting and really flavorful. The baked black beans are actually fully cooked, which many... More

The small wood house shown in the photo is where you walk up to the Top of the Hill Grill to place your order. Tables are set off to the side, some under tent-like cover, some out in the open. Their porch overlooks some lovely scenery. The food is OK. Not great. Not bad. Prices are reasonable. Each dish seems... More
