Needs to be updated menu and decor could use a good scrub down. Years ago food was very good not so much lately burgers taste like they have been frozen.

This is a long term restaurant serving diner-like food in a diner- like atmosphere. The service is consistently fast and friendly and the food is always tasty and well cooked. Whenever I'm in the area I try to find time to eat here. It's a fun place.

We stayed literally within walking distance of this restaurant, which, from the outside, appeared merely an adjunct to some bowling lanes--suggesting to us that it was likely not where we'd want to eat. Indeed, the outside was pretty rundown looking and the restaurant sign not exactly prominent. We were in town and the last day decided to at least take... More

The Hill Top Restaurant, though only a few hundred yards from Mirbeau, is worlds away cuisine-wise and ambience-wise. It's a diner connected to a bowling alley. Had dinner there one evening in August 2015, the chicken parm. Very generous portion, decent sauce, classic salad in wooden bowl, plus you get a small bowl of cottage cheese. Who doesn't like a...

I have been to the Cedar House on many occasions since a young age, and the Cedar House has improved greatly. The past few years I have not been a fan of the Cedar House, but as of today their restaurant is out with the old and in with the new. Service: While dining, the service was quite tentative, and...

The place was packed so you think it must be a good place to eat. You find out, it' pretty much one of the only places to eat at a reasonable price. But, you get what you pay for I guess. I ordered the breakfast special. 2 eggs, toast, hash browns. coffee $4.99. I ordered eggs over easy, hash browns... More

Went there with friends for dinner. Not a great experience. Service was not the best and orders were mixed up. Food was nothing I would go back for and that was the general feel from all of us. Yet we have been there for breakfast and find that this meal is very good for the price. Coffee could be better... More

This is a diner with attached bowling alley. It is everything that Skaneateles is not...no ambiance, no lake view, no gourmet food, no fine linens, no high prices, ...BUT it has good diner food, big portions and very good service. We have eaten dinner here several times and never been disappointed. Lately, I have had meatloaf dinner and chicken and... More
