Salad dressing choices are Lemon Vinaigrette, French or Green Goddess (a sour cream, green onion and garlic dressing similar to ranch). Most menus indicate if you need to tell us how you would like a specific item cooked (Typically beef entrees). We will cook any entrée that you do not tell us how you want it cooked to a range of Medium Rare/Medium.

The Culinary Club will also be accepting non-perishable goods for local food pantries & if interested, items can be dropped off when picking up food orders. If you need to cancel, please do so at least 24 hours in advance. This will allow reservations to be made by other customers. You can cancel a reservation by emailing or by calling our reservation number.

Seeing, as we would like to allow as many of our community members to dine at the Top of the Hill, we ask that each person limit their reservations/attendance to two, until the second week of service.  On March 23rd, if there are still openings, we welcome you to make additional reservations.

Food and Restaurant Practicum students will serve Tuesday and Thursday dates. Themed a la carte menus are planned and served by the students for this class.  A variety of foods and fresh ingredients are incorporated into the menu to fit the theme of the day.

If classes at Nicolet College are cancelled for inclement weather, all Curbside Pickup services will be cancelled for that day and there will not be a make-up service date.
