Plan Your Lunch at Top of the Hill

The student-run Top of the Hill restaurant offers a range of cuisine styles from around the world. As part of their learning curriculum, students of the Culinary program offer unique and delicious food for students, staff, and community members during the Spring Term of each year. Experience new and creative tastes as student chefs create themed menus for delicious lunch buffets.

Top of the Hill Open For Spring 2022

Reservations for the Top of the Hill can best be made by calling 715-365-4466 between the hours of 8 am - 2:00 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting on Thursday, January 13th, 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 their 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. Masks are required for any in-person diners except when eating or drinking.

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 times between 11:00am and 12:15pm 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 or dining room.

If classes at Nicolet College are cancelled for inclement weather, all Top of the Hill 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”.
