“Absolutley unbelievable”
Review of House on the Hill - CLOSED

House on the Hill

Reviewed September 2, 2012

My wife and I stopped as the place looked nice and a great location. We waited at least 15 minutes at the hostess station....no one there....people ahead of us finally just left.

We peaked into the restaurant and the "harried waitress" told us to go back to the front and a hostess would come...about five minutes later she did show up and mumbled they were closing (it was noon on Sunday of labor day weekend). We were told that they ran out of food! The hostess was very surly and when we said are you kidding? she said...just go somewhere else with a "who cares attitude".


We summer around Chautaqua and are always eating out and looking for nice places...this was unbelievable! Never had a chance to try the food but very rude and unprofessional...sad!

Food was delicious. Decor is very nice - open and airy.
Service was a little slow but we weren't in a hurry.

This used to be a great place for lunch & breakfast but I would not go there again.
View & setting is still wonderful but the food is like any greasy spoon. Menu selections are very limited. It's always weird to walk into a once very popular restaurant to find it almost empty.
They won't survive unless food & menu improves a ton!

This place has a panini that is outstanding!!! A great way to relax and enjoy a moment away from the "Lake Activities"

I had been to House on the Hill in the past....and it suffered from spotty service and food.
Not so for this season... The food is really great, fresh and generously portioned plus the service couldn't be better. I can't wait to eat there again. Yes it's slightly more expensive than the mom and pop breakfast and lunch places, but it's got ambiance and higher end cuisine so it's worth it (IMO).
