We went to Top of the Hill after the Citadel game, and the service was ridiculously slow even for a game day crowd. We sat at the bar right next to the waitress station. It took about 10 min for the bartenders to acknowledge us and 20 min to get our drinks. After that we decided to go eat someplace... More

I had nachos with avocado. They were really good. The portion size was perfect. When I order nachos I typically know there will be waste. The nachos on the bottom are usually limp and greasy. That is not the case with Top of the Hill. In addition to good food, they have great drinks. Top of the Hill is also... More

We each seemed to order some variation of the chicken dish with one being pasta based, the food portions were HUGE and delicious. We sat on their heated patio overlooking franklin street there was a full moon and the church steeple in the background looked so beautiful Reasonable prices good quality it is a must

The food is over priced for no exceptional quality. Service was attentive and friendly though. Athletic shorts and t-shirts don't really fit the dress code here though.

The location is great, but don't expect a lot out of this place. It's servers are lovely but spread thin - and thus service is slow. Food should be avoided. And stick with the basics on the drinks.

My husband and I love Top of the Hill. Great food and excellent service. Our waitress on our last date was Sequoia, and she was very patient and helpful when we had not fully decided what to order. Suggestions were spot on. Only downside is that the prices make it hard to bring the whole family, perfect for date nights... More

Our family of eight recently visited Chapel Hill for a BB game, and went to Top afterwards for some drinks. The service exceeded expectations, and the view is always great there. We found one beer special that saved a few bucks, but in general, prices topped the scales for a college town. No complaints about the service, quality, or atmosphere... More

Excellent food and craft brewed beer. The Wild Mushroom Grit cakes are outstanding. As a Yankee I am unaccustomed to grits and find them tasteless and useless...until now. My husband had the chicken pot pie and was very pleased with it. The beer pairing were spot on and the view from the top is beautiful at sunset. The atmosphere is... More

We went in to get out of the rain as we were browsing Franklin Street. The beers were super good and we had the Sweet Potato Waffle Fries with cream cheese and jalepeno dip.
