The Hilltoppers is open limited hours and days so check the webpage first. You might also want to make reservations. We discovered it walking by. The Hilltoppers is run by high school students from St. Johnsbury Academy. It is my understanding they they rotate through every aspect of running a restaurant: Cooking, serving, clean-up, etc. They did an excellent job... More

The restaurant is an off shoot of the culinary program at The St. Johnsbury Academy. Students, specifically seniors participating in the program, work all parts of the house. The food is thoughtful and creative. The staff, eager and knowledgeable. Many will go on to the CIA or NECI to further their education. The atmosphere is sophisticated, but comfortable. Prices are...

I hardly know where to start-the atmosphere, the service, and most of all the food. Certainly I would rate them all as excellent. The restaurant decor is a little uptown with a touch of bistro, the service was prompt, professional, and very friendly, and the food was simply divine. You will find it hard to believe that this restaurant is... More

Went for the first time yesterday. Wonderful place. I had the fettucini Alfredo which was excellent. My husband had the seafood chowder and half of a BLT. Very good. We are going back for lunch again today.

I went for the first time yesterday and was incredibly pleased! I had winter squash soup, then cider braised pork with squash and brussel sprouts with bacon and pecans and a chocolate mousse tower for dessert. This restaurant is run by the St J Academy students to give them real world restaurant experience, and the result is a local, gourmet... More

The Hilltopper is a restaurant owned and operated by the St. Johnsbury Academy. The high school students study, prepare meals, wait tables, prepare menus, order supplies and do whatever else is needed to run a restaurant. The menu changes every 6 weeks or so. Right now, they are serving their American Bistro menu. I had the roasted eggplant and portabella... More
