Thank you Hilltop Tavern In staff!!
Thank you to everyone who made my day perfect! The venue was spacious and had all the room we needed for our guest. The staff was on top of anything and everything that we needed. Also the chef was amazing the food was good and was prepared in a timely manor and we had plenty for everyone. The best part was the sunset towards the end of the event the view from the Hilltop was breath taking. We also got the photo booth which was a big hit and kept our guest coming back for entertainment. My guest as well as myself enjoyed everything about this venue and will definitely recommend or have more events there!Sent on 10/11/2019

Best Baby Shower Ever!
I’ve had over 20 guest call or message me just to say, “this was the best baby shower I’ve ever been to.” Let’s start with the staff, Luke was amazing and so helpful. Anytime I needed something he took care of it right away. The chef did a phenomenal job with our menu, food was presented beautifully! The Venue!!! Such a fun place. The baby shower theme was Woodland and the Hill Top was exactly right. Guest loved the view and the option to go to the bar area and watch some football or sit outside. Last but not least, Stacey! From set up to clean up, she ensured we were taken care of and any adjustments we needed she took care of, with a smile. Thank you for making our event so special!Sent on 10/12/2019

Best Day Ever!
Our wedding was the BEST DAY EVER thanks to Stacey and everyone at the Hilltop Tavern and Inn! We knew we wanted a high desert wedding and the Hilltop was the first venue we visited. It was love at first sight! Chef Chris was great from the food tasting to the big day. He even came by our table during the reception to see how we liked everything. We loved the food, as did our guests! Our DJ (Keith) and Officiant (Dan) were also awesome and very responsive to emails and delivered exactly what we discussed on our wedding day. The staff at the Hilltop were all amazing to us during our rehearsal dinner and wedding. Last but not least, Stacey took the few emails (okay I sent more than a few), phone calls and visits we had and helped turn our vision into the most beautiful day ever. I am still getting compliments on how beautiful our wedding was! Stacey does it all from the floral arrangements to the decor. My bouquet was HUGE and exactly what I dreamed of! On the day of, she took every bit of stress I had away by keeping tied in with the wedding party and making sure we stuck to our timeline. Everything went so smoothly and the only thing we had to do was enjoy our day with our family and friends. At the end of the reception all of our things were packed away for us and we were given a care package of food and cupcakes to take back to our room, which was so thoughtful and appreciated, as we definitely needed a second dinner! We're forever grateful to the Hilltop Tavern and Inn! Hands down, best place to marry your best friend!Sent on 10/19/2019
