More Information About Top Of the Hill Curbside Pickup

Since we fill up quickly and we would like to allow as many of our community members to enjoy the cuisine from the Top of the Hill, we ask that each person limits their Curbside Pickup reservations to two.   After January 26th, if there are still openings, we welcome you to make additional Curbside Pickup reservations or request to be placed on our waiting list.

Tuesday and Thursday Lunch Buffets will feature themed cuisine buffets during the first seven weeks of this class. The “Themed Cuisine Buffets” will offer International and National Cuisines that are planned and prepared by the students, using fresh ingredients and a variety of foods to fit the cuisine. These are very popular with Top of the Hill customers, so make sure you get your reservations right away!  Buffets are $13.00 + tax per person.

Reservations are required and will be taken for pickup times between 11 am and 12:30 pm in 15-minute increments. We do request that you please be on time for your reservation, as we need to prevent a bottleneck in the parking lot. When you arrive, please pull into a numbered parking spot by the building and call 715-365-4466 to notify us of your arrival.

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. 

Thank you for your support of our students! Without customers like you, it would be hard for the students to learn within our hands-on laboratory classes at “The Top of The Hill”.
