Hilltop House Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The Hilltop House was a pleasure,upon arrival door was locked at 4:50 but the wait staff unlocked quickly and apologized even though we were early. We were seated promptly. During the online reservation in special request put down it was my anniversary, and after the staff handed us the wine list she stated happy anniversary. The food was wonderful and was the best.
This was our first time at hilltop House ...
This was our first time at hilltop House. We had heard many good things about the Sunday brunch, but it was much better than we expected. In addition to the omelet/Belgian waffle station, there was an array of breakfast items, seafood items, sides, prime rib, and wonderful desserts. Service and atmosphere were great.
Overall it was a wonderful experience. We had a party of seven including two, 2 year olds. While the staff was wonderful with the kiddos and they enjoyed themselves I would not classify as toddler friendly. Very limited, though delicious, children's options and the ambience was definitely better for dates special occasions or older children. The food was delicious. My steak did come out over cooked, however the server inmediately brought it back to the kitchen and presented me with a new steak done to my preference. The chef checked in on us, and the service was prompt. The live music was very enjoyable, though I wish it had been slightly quieter as it was slightly difficult to hear my dining companions. The wine menu was diverse and had a good range in price and taste. The portion sizes were large (including the two children's meals) but the food was very good.
Great place tfor a small or medium size luncheon
I have hosted both small and medium sized luncheons at the Hilltop House. In both cases I was more than satisfied with the surroundings, service and food. The latest visit was a small tribute luncheon with access to the buffet. The general opinion of my guests was "Oh, my goodness!" Could not have asked for a better place to entertain.
I hadn't been to Hilltop House in years so was looking forward to dining there, however, was disappointed in the whole experience. The service was slow "because they had a large party" which had nothing to do with our party of four. We waited 1 1/2 hours to be served dinner. The food was mediocre at best and we had to flag down our server to get refills on our water as it was hot inside the restaurant. We were never asked if we needed anything or how was everything and we were not even offered dessert menus or coffee while surrounding tables received these offers.
I will not find there for dinner ever again.
We ate dinner at Hilltop for the first time last weekend. It was my husband's birthday, and upon being seated, we noticed a very elegant display sitting on our table wishing my husband a Happy Birthday. The food, service, and company made for a very special night for my family, most importantly, my husband. The ambiance was perfect! Love the Christmas trees and holiday lighting...it provides a very romantic feel to the house. We will be back.
Expensive, charge for gratuity, wait for service
We had been to this restaurant many years ago. We did not remember a buffet and wanted to experience it. We had to wait a few minutes just to be acknowledged for drinks even though the waiter was consistently nearby at two other tables. The food was not worth $24.95. Most of it was cold or lukewarm with the exception of the corn casserole. It was also bland. The seafood tasted fishy. Therefore, it wasn't fresh and the oysters tasted as though they hadn't been cleaned thoroughly. Finally, the check came and a 20% gratuity was added to the bill. I can see why they would add it considering the service isn't worth more than 10%. The staff was slow and not as friendly as one would hope for the price. I will definitely not recommend this restaurant to friends, nor will we be going back.
The food is fantastic. We have visited for midweek lunch and Sunday brunch, having their buffet each time. While they have a larger selection in Sunday, the food and selection is always excellent. My favorites include the shrimp and grits, fried chicken, and mixed fruit cobbler.
This restaurant was great for a ladies brunch. THe food was excellent and a good variety. I was a little put off by the 20% tip that the waitress added on the final bill though especially since the service was good, but not great. Also, it was a buffet!
Fine dining...loosely termed here
The Hilltop House is categorized as fine dining. Now that I have been there, it must be because they have linen table clothes. Outside of that, there was nothing fine about the experience. In my opinion the fine dining category permits them to overcharge for bland food and horrible service. We went for Sunday brunch, which runs until 2pm. We booked an available reservation for 1pm. Apparently we should have went earlier because by the time we were there, food trays were either empty, old, or cold. Sauce dishes sat empty and items were not replenished for that last hour. Yet, we were charged the same buffet amount (nearly $30 per person) for which seemed like leftovers. The uniforms of the staff did not resemble fine dining but more a BBQ pit. Our server was hard to find and only checked on us once we were halfway done with the meal. We asked for two items (jam and ketchup) and he brought one. For brunch, the restaurants offers a choice of endless mimosa or sangria. I ordered the mimosa and my wife ordered the sangria. She did not even finish a glass (disliked the taste) and asked to switch her beverage to the mimosa. The server acted as if he was doing us a favor by permitting her to switch her beverage. When he brought check, he did not ask if we needed anything else. Seems like he just wanted to get his "suggested gratuity" and move on. We would never recommend the brunch at Hilltop House. I cannot speak to their other menus, but I am pessimistic that it would be much improved.
This was our second visit. The first vi ...
This was our second visit. The first visit was in December. The food this time was nothing like before. I had the herb crusted salmon and mashed potatoes. Both were very bland. My husband had a filet and it was also bland. The presentation of the food was impressive, it would help if the taste was consistent. Overall, great service and atmosphere.
Best in Fayetteville!
My parents live in Fayetteville, and it's a chore to find a good restaurant there when we're visiting them. This time I researched it, and found the Hilltop House. What a wonderful change after all the chain restaurants! We went there for brunch and it was great. My parents are in their mid to late 80's -- my mother has trouble walking and my father is partially deaf. They seated us away from the crowd, so no worries about my mother tripping up or my father not hearing us. The staff was just wonderful. The brunch buffet was great also! I'm recently on a low-sodium diet, and I had no trouble finding things I could eat.
Prices not comparable to quality of food ...
Prices not comparable to quality of food. It was good, but not Southern Prime or Ruth Chris Steakhouse good. This may explain why there were only about 5 other couples in the entire restaurant at 7 pm. It took about 5 minutes to receive a glass of wine and a coke.
Wonderful, Romantic, Amazing!
My husband and I came across this restaurant while looking online for a romantic restaurant for our anniversary that also offered a wide, appetizing menu. We definitely chose the right spot! Not only did they take the time to add a special touch to our table, but every person working there was so kind, attentive, and eager to let us enjoy our evening. The food was AMAZING (def try the Crab cake and fried green tomatoes, the seafood Mac and cheese, and the collards!), the portions large, and the quality above par!
We highly recommend this gem of Fayetteville!
poor quality of steak
I ordered the New York strip steak and it was probably the toughest steak I've ever eaten in my life. It tasted pretty good but it was very very tough. The owner took care of my bill but I won't be going back! This was a special occasion and I was Very disappointed!
Brunch to remember
This restaurant is an experience that you must try if in Fayetteville. The building is a beautiful colonial and the grounds are very well taken care of. The front desk girl was very nice but the waiter was a bit rude. He loved to walk right past us on multiple occasions, probably because we ordered the bottomless mimosas. The food definitely made up for his substandard performance. They have an amazing brunch selection from Belgian waffles to half shelled oysters. The selection of food was remarkable and we can't wait to go back.
poor seating, slow service.
we where one of 4 tables on a Saturday night and yet they put us right next to an extremely noisy table. It took about 15 minutes for the bartender to figure out they where out of the wine we ordered and then served it slowly. we had to constantly wait for more water and they never brought us our bread basket after asking a few times for it. The food was ok...
We went here last year for our Anniversary and was so pleased with the service and food that we knew we wanted to return. We were surprised how much everything had changed in a years time. We got there and had to wait several minutes for a Hostess to even come out. She was less than polite or professional. They had a party going on the other side of the house and it seems all their manpower and attention was being over there. We sat for nearly 10 min before our waitress finally showed up. The food was less than par. We will definitely not be returning. I don't know if they switched Chefs, but they went down hill in my book.
Delicious brunch! Everything imaginable!
Went for a bridal shower, where we were seated in the "Sun room." It was quiet a lovely ambiance and atmosphere. Very large house with lots of different rooms for almost any setting that you may desire. The brunch was incredible and delicious. So many different options it was hard to decide the next thing to try without getting too full :P It was a real treat.
great but not what I expected
We had a great time, but the buffet was really crowded with no real organization. It was almost impossible to get to the omelet bar or anything else without hitting elbows with everybody. Along with being crowded, the food trays were running empty and not refilled very quickly. The servers are great, and the mimosas are delicious! It's good...just not if your really hungry.
