We go there often. People are great and the food is good. There is live band entertainment on the weekends and we have favorites we seldom miss. Casual, fun and good value.

Stopped at the Hilltop Crab House on our way home from golfing. The crabs were delicious. We sat at the bar to eat our crabs, and I must mention the young lady that waited on us was an excellent waitress. I live in New Jersey,...More
