We have enjoyed several great meals at Top of the Hill this summer, but our favorite experience was taking our three grandchildren to dinner. Our twin three year old boys are very picky eaters, but to our surprise they ate every bit of the spaghetti and sauce which they loved. They finished one huge meatball between them and asked for more. When the second meatball order arrived they actually cheered for the meatballs. They finished dinner with ice cream and chocolate sauce and agreed this was the best restaurant ever. ( My husband and I really enjoyed the prime rib, the best on the island.)

We ave been here three times since May and have found it a uniformly delightful experience. Great food, beverages, service and atmosphere at a modest price.

Top of the Hill Restaurant in Southwest Harbor is the most scrumptious meal you will have with a rustic cozy atmosphere. ♥ I love it there. Pasta Florentine is my fave..but they have the BEST and creative menu. It's authentic Italian blended with historic seafood. And they take care of Vegans...Vegetarians...Kindness everywhere, including the food.

Yummy!! Are frequent Fliers. We go there a few times a year with every visit to the Island. Love the food, the laid back atmosphere, The family... You get to know everyone on a first name basis.
The Garlic and Herb Mussels are to die for! The bruchetta is crisp on the bottom and moist on the top. The Lobster Stew...OMG and the Crab Cakes, better than Maryland, The chefs name is Dan, his Crab Cake recipe is what I compare all others against. Have had many dinner selections as well. Love the Veal Italiano, the Prime Rib, the Baked Stuffed Haddock, Broiled Salmon with Dill Sauce all moist and delicious... and if you're really hungry, the Ciappino is Unbelievable!!!!
They have a Full bar, Always a fun drink special. Personal favorite, The Mango Margaritas!! and let's not forget the perfect finisher, The Blueberry Hill, lightly sweet lemon and blueberry.
The Top of the Hill is always a Good time !!

Came here on our last night in town hoping for one last delicious meal. We definitely got it! We both had the lobsterpahlooza which was really good and a great value (comes with dessert). Debbie (I think the owner) greated us at the table and was super nice. Our server was wonderful also. Highly recommend this place if you're looking for a relaxed and delicious meal.
