Wine was stale, food cooked to wrong temperature, crab cakes were all filler, but put in back corner of house near view of restrooms and an unexplained large ugly curtain on the wall. Table candles not lit and a cheap fake flower on table.

Very impressed with the way this stately house was restored into a restaurant. There are several rooms, and, they all have their own personality. I was seated in the bar area, still very nice, although I would have preferred one of the other stately rooms. Sunday brunch was quite a nice variety of choices, and not necessarily all breakfast foods. They did have an omelet bar, but with one person and a single pan, so expect a wait. This person also took care of the carving station. My waiter was very friendly, but not very attentive. The food was tasty, but pretty standard preparation... nothing special. The prime rib from the carving station was very good. The desserts were not very appetizing. I chose a few cookies, but they were pretty bland, and hard as rocks.

When we booked this venue there was only one available reservation, but when we arrived there were only three other tables seated . Instead of being seated in the nicer dining area we were seated in the bar area. Once seated the menu which was a sheet of paper was handed to us and it was not the available menu online. This was disappointing to me as this was part of the reason I chose this restaurant. My dinner tasted like the chicken had been freezer burned the potatoes tasted as if they had come from a box the wine tasted as if it had been open for weeks and the creme brûlée was not great either. The service was awesome and apologized for the discrepancy in the menus. For the quality of the meal the price was outrageous .

 (Birmingham)·Dined on October 8, 2017

While the food was good, the mandatory 20% tip that is added automatically is kinda messed up. I could see that being the case with six or more people...but 20% gratuity on a buffet?? Seriously, someone must be high. I could see 15% but not 20%. Circa 1800 had better food and alcohol than this place and was worth 20% ...but they leave it up to the customer to choose based on the service they received. Seriously, you need to re-think a mandatory gratuity for a buffet.

Also, be nice of this place to update there menus on all websites they advertise or use and let potential customers know they no longer have bottomless mimosas or sangria for brunch...again, they weren’t that great and I for sure wouldn’t have paid $6.50 a piece for them.

The guy who finally came over to my table was patronizing and condescending who did nothing to help rectify the situation or at least try to do something to make up for their lack of false advertising after it was pointed out and shown to them. I will never go back...I’ll go somewhere and spend my money on a great brunch instead of mediocre one in the future.

Went to celebrate a birthday, I took six first timers and they absolutely loved it!
As always the food was delicious, more than enough, and the staff went out of their way to make us feel comfortable.

I had made a reservation specifically requesting a table tucked away due to our 2.5month daughter who naturally can sometimes get upset. We showed up on time and we're walked back to the dining area and due to the tables not being ready had to stand around in a corner waiting for our table. We weren't accommodated to and didn't say anything about it. But when our little one got fussy, the same lady who was supposed to be in charge of seating arrangements had the audacity to come and ask us if we wanted to be moved to the bar since no one had occupied it yet. Mind you we had already received our meal.... it was extremely frustrating. Aside from that the food was good.

They added 20% to the bill for gratuity. It wasn't a suggestion, it was part of the bill labeled "surcharge". When I looked into it, I saw "gratuity, 20%" printed on the bill.
Seems like a little much for the tip at a serve yourself type of meal.
I won't go back because of this.

That I know of,this is the only brunch buffet of its' kind in the Fayetteville area. Do yourself a favor and drive the extra time it takes to get to Raleigh and choose one of the many brunches there. It would be well worth it. Hilltop House is lack luster in quality, taste of food, and value to say the least. In short, overpriced establishment in an area with not many choices

It's expensive for brunch, especially when the buffet does not get replenished. We were there for almost 2hrs and never saw the food refilled. Therefore, food was cold. We didn't like that there was an Admin Fee that was not part of the gratuity.

If airline food and hotel food had a baby, the outcome would be what you get served at Hilltop House. Though the menu seems promising, the execution falls short of anything worth while. Considering our check was over $100 for two people, I would expect excellence. Instead, we were served food that could have been found at Red Lobster - in fact, I think as much as I find that restaurant abhorrent, I am willing to be their cuisine would still have come out on top in a taste contest.
With three - yes three - executive chefs, the food should be excellent.

This was the worst dining experience EVER for me! I took my father and family to Hilltop for Father's Day. I noticed the sign upon entering that said gratuity charged for every meal. I was fine with that because I assumed this was because of the Father's Day Brunch. I also noticed that the brunch was 25.90. As we are seated I noticed how warm it was in the area. The waitress came over and asked our drink order. When we asked the options she gave us this odd look and simply said they were coke products. I knew from the website Hilltop was serving mimosas so I asked about other alcoholic beverages to which she replied we can make anything.. and then she walked off. She came back and took our drink order and left again - no mention of how to get to the buffet or what was being served. We figured it out and walked over. As I get to the first food station I was immediately repulsed by the flies. The deli meat tray was consumed with flies and the potato salad and fruit salad had flies as well. I wanted some crab legs but was turned once again because the server was putting fresh crab legs on the tray using his hands. The server at the prime rib carving station had an attitude because I asked for a slice that was well done. The fried chicken was raw and our waitress only came back to our table to take the plates. She never offered to refill our drinks. I paid almost 200 bucks for service and a meal that was beyond sub par. Do not dine at this establishment. I promise if you do you will be severely disappointed.

Was looking forward to bringing Mother and Grandmother on Saturday before Mother's day to lunch. Called to make reservation on Friday and was told to do it online, so I did. Online it said Mother's day brunch was for Sunday, so we checked out the menu items and that's what we wanted and expected. However, when we arrived we were told you had to eat the Mother's day "brunch". There was very little to choose from and where I come from brunch means breakfast and lunch food. It was like a micro Golden Corral. The price per person was $32.95 which was waaaayyyyy over priced. So after myself and another table spoke with the manager, they adjusted it to $13.95. Better price but not what we expected or wanted.

My wife and I had dinner at the Hilltop House Restaurant on 15 April 2017. It was NOT a good experience. The staff was not adequately manned, the service was slow, and three of the limited main dishes were not available from the menu. I can't understand how you can charge high prices for food and not have three main dinner items. I requested to speak with the manager but only could speak with the waiter. Unfortunately for the limited restaurant staff, they accepted all the blame from multiple customers. That is the job of management. This is unacceptable restaurant management. At the very least we should have been given a chance to talk to the owner, management, given a reduced bill. We could have eaten anywhere but chose to dine at Hilltop House Restaurant. We won't make that mistake again.

It was good. Not my first time here. However, it was a little embarrassing when one of my friends mentioned she really wanted the beef tips but the dish was empty. I assured her that they would refill it and we brought it to the attention of one of the servers. My friend finished her whole meal, waited, and that particular dish was never refilled (it's a buffet brunch!). It was my Friend's 1st time eating there (at my invitation). We were seated at 11:00 am and lingered over coffee and dessert. No one came to apologize. On our way out, someone refilled the beef tips.

Unfortunately this was not a great experience at all, long story short are food came out cold and very over cooked I had to ask about 4 times for some bread which didn't end up coming until we were finished with the meal. No one came to refill our waters or even ask if we needed anything after initially placing our orders. When explaining the concern the waiter just said ok and received our check, no questions or apology.
