Experience new and creative tastes as student chefs create themed menus for delicious lunch buffets.

Top of the Hill Open For Spring 2023

We will start taking reservations at 9 am on Tuesday, January 17, 2023. Reservations for the Top of the Hill Buffet Dine-In or Pickup can best be made by calling 715-365-4466 between the hours of 8 am - 2 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting on Tuesday, March 17th, 2022. Students will be taking reservations at this number as often as possible to enhance their learning opportunities.  We will answer the phone as often as we can during this class and we do apologize if we miss your call. 

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 reservations to one. After January 25th, if there are still openings, we welcome you to make additional 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 the students plan and prepare, using fresh ingredients and various 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 $15.00 + tax per person. 

Reservations are required and will be taken for times between 11 am and 12:15 pm in 15-minute increments. We request that you please be on time for your reservation, as we need to prevent a bottleneck in the dining room. 

If classes at Nicolet College are canceled for inclement weather, all Top of the Hill services will be canceled for that day, and there will not be a make-up service date. 

The semester is divided into two parts; we will begin taking reservations for our A’ La Carte Service in early March as soon as the schedule is published. A’ La Carte Service will start on or about the week of March 16, 2023. Please watch for updates and the A’ La Carte schedule prior to that. 

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”.
