Great location just 1 block away from The Carolina Inn. Wedding guests easily walked there and loved the great UNC vibe a, food and beer!

“Great View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

On the top of the building with a large outdoor patio, this is a great venue for anything. Went for lunch and had the pulled pork sandwich. Service was great as was the meal. Prices are reasonable.

“One of Chapel Hill's Best Views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

There is no substitute for Top of the Hill''s patio (or indoor) dining. Very few restaurants have captured the true small town ambiance of Chapel Hill's urban and rural sky line like it does, and it's particularly good for people watching when the University in is session...and on top of it all, the food is very good, with a wide variety of seasonal choices and the home brewed beer and great wine list and full bar is exceptional with something for any taste or palate.

“Go for the view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

The menu isn't anything to boast about, but our food (nachos and a salad) was presented very beautifully. I was also really impressed by the nachos because I think they gave a perfect portion size and the avocados were very fresh. The red velvet dessert was mediocre since I didn't think the cake was particularly fresh or home-made. The beer here is great; I absolutely love the blueberry wheat beer which is available in the summer. Service was exceptional, the view was lovely, and the restaurant was clean. It can get very loud--so maybe not a great place for big groups.

“Graduation Weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

The food is excellent. It was a very busy night and we had late reservations. The waiter was very attentive. I highly recommend the Jambalaya. Served on risotto.
