The Hilltop in Orange Park has been a pillar in the community since the 80’s, and for very good reason. The charm and character of the restaurant are qualities you just aren’t going to be able to find elsewhere in the region. After climbing a sizable hill near the Orange Park Mall, you are greeted by a Victorian-style Florida mansion nestled on a lush and sprawling campus canopied by massive live oaks and blanketed with gorgeous landscaping. The feeling of vintage Florida continues inside the building as well, with rooms wrapped in dark woods, decadent tapestries, and lush antiques in every nook and cranny. This is topped off by a massive hand carved bar that is undoubtedly one of the finest in Orange Park. Situated adjacent to the bar, the antique baby grand piano provides a perfect romantic soundtrack throughout the labyrinthine rooms of the mansion.
The Hilltop’s ambiance is highlighted by attentive service and cuisine as well, with options ranging from special-occasion events & dinners for large groups to intimate romantic dinners for individuals, or just a quality meal for friends or families. If you are searching for the perfect spot to dine before a night out at the theatre, or a cozy bar for post-show discussions (coupled with coffee or desserts), look no further. The Hilltop is fully equipped to make your night out a night to remember.
And as an added bonus, Hilltop will offer any Thrasher-Horne guest with a ticket stub 10% off their bill for that perfect pre- or post-show experience!
