What to say about the Hillview... It might not look like much from the outside, and it's small and dark when you're inside, but that shouldn't stop you. Get a local coupon for buy-one-get-one meals on Wednesday. Thursday special is 8-cut pizza and a dozen wings for $12. Lots of sandwiches on the menu along with nightly specials. Nice burgers. Homemade fresh cut french fries. The wings are crisp and delicious and they have a garlic parm sauce that's decent. The pizza is bar pizza - not bad, but not like a pizzeria. Prices are very reasonable for what you get. Service can be slow if there are a lot of people at the bar.
Internet jukebox for any tune you want to hear. Crane game for the kids. Buck hunter or pinball for the adults. Pool table in the back room. Occasional band on Fri or Sat nights. Lawnmower races during the summer (Google "Northeast Lawn Mower Racing Organization") on the dirt track out back.
So, either sidle up to the bar or grab one of the small tables. I'll see ya there.
