    We went to Mount Hill to enjoy the outdoor music. I had taken the kids earlier in the summer and we ate outside. Rain threatening, we ate inside. My kids (6 and 12) love Mount Hill. They quietly played a game at the table while my husband and I talked and had wine. The food is multi-layed in flavor and creative. The ambience is warm and welcoming and the service was great. We like this spot for special occasions and have given various friends gift cards. The night we went, we saw three people we knew, so it's a spot that gathers and welcomes folks.

    We had a birthday luncheon for 5 and had lunch on the patio. It was a beautiful day and the service was excellent, despite our server being the only one in evidence. She was friendly, efficient, always there with a refill of iced tea or water and never seemed harried even though she was serving at least 5 other tables. The food was good and we split a dessert of carrot cake which was very good and attractively served.

    We had a wonderful time at the tavern. Our server Jen, was very knowledgable with the menu and made excellent recommendations as well as accommodations for our needs. We had asked about wine and were able to Perfectly pair our drinks with food as well. Food was good (scallops were excellent!) as was the atmosphere; overall a totally great experience.

    Live music and patio dining for our anniversary was ideal. Tables were a bit close together, making the loud table next to us a bit annoying. Service was quick and attentive. The food was good, though I wouldn't say it was over the top. But, overall the atmosphere was lovely, and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

    I love this restaurant and I think the food over the last few months has been well done and delicious. I also really enjoy the relaxed setting. I just don't understand why it seems that the servers are stretched too thin. If they added a few more to ensure attentive service this place would be an overwhelming favorite. Same problem every time we go and it's unfortunate. My server on Saturday night was bussing other tables and literally running to help everyone. I will continue to return for the excellent food.

    We came to the restaurant for the first time after hearing good things. The grounds and outdoor dining environment were beautiful. The service was slow and the food was on par with any other restaurant in the area. Not really impressive for the price. Dessert was excellent although we would have liked to see some chocolate dessert on the menu. Overall, we will come again, but, wish they would make better food and have more attentive servers.

    Thursday evening was very busy. Noise level in dining room was high. Sushi appetizer as well as crab/corn soup were delicious. Our other apps mushroom soup/salad were ok. Never received a bread basket. When we asked, they apologized and then 5 minutes later took our bread plates away. 3 minutes later we received a bread basket. Waited again for them to bring new plates???Didn't receive any details on specials or "house" favorites. Scallops were ok--nothing special as I had read in other reviews. Served with macncheese--which I found odd--Again nothing to really rave about here. Maybe an off night, would give them a second try.

    We dined at Mount Hill Tavern because we were given a gift card by friends. The moment we drove into the grounds we were hooked by its quiet atmosphere amid the hustle and bustle of the city. The grounds are beautiful with seasonal decorations and flora. The tavern itself has a warm decor with attentive staff. All of the foods and beverages we have experienced at Mount Hill Tavern have been superb. I love scallops and have several restaurants at various beaches that have excellent scallops. The scallops I have eaten at Mount Hill Tavern are, by far, the most delectable. The crab cakes are another favorite, along with the crab and corn chowder. I highly recommend that you experience the fine dining at Mount Hill Tavern.

Ashley waited on us and was very prompt, courteous, pleasant and was easily able to answer all of our questions regarding the food, she was even well aware of how individual meals were prepared. The food was excellent. We enjoyed the calamari, mushroom soup, chicken dishes, steak and scallops. The drinks were also quite enjoyable.

    We went there for the first time for lunch and were attracted due to the attractiveness of the exterior. The food was okay as was the service but they are missing for want of another word, "class" The dress and demeanor of the staff is on the light side and the interior experience did not live up to what we expected.
