You might miss "The Hill" if you aren't looking for it. The fact that it is nearly hidden from the naked eye is part of its charm. "The Hill" is nestled on the roof of another restaurant (Muza--I haven't been but it appears to be a very good Eastern European restaurant, based on the line outside. The Hill and Muza are owned by the same company and the food from the hill comes from the Muza kitchen. I will definitely stop by Muza the next time I am in Troy, if the "potato pancake disco balls" are any indication of the quality of the food below!)

But I digress.

"The Hill" is tucked beside a hill, as the name suggests, on the roof of this one story building. It is a meandering folly. with a waterfall, stone walls, lots of greenery and fairylights to boot! The overall effect is magical. The beer on tap is polish, other types of beer available in bottles. A good selection of wine. No hard liquor. A small but interesting menu--try the disco balls! I would recommend "The Hill" for drink and a small bite before heading out for dinner elsewhere (maybe below at Muza?) There isn't wait staff, you order at the bar like in a traditional pub. The kitchen completely disregarded our requests for special accommodations (not cheese on the burger, no onion on another)--it just isn't that kind of place. The Kielbasa was phenomenal. The pork shoulder taco would have been had it not been soaked in sour cream (the pork was really yummy). The burgers were good, if you like a lot of stuff on your burgers. The disco balls were amazing.

Went here late in the season how cool is this? Feels like you're in a Greek taverna. Get the grilled cheese!

Went there a few weeks ago to have dinner and some drinks. Although it is a bit overpriced, the place is a nice spot in Troy to have some wine or beers. I would recommend it for a chilling evening!

Within a few minutes, you'll feel you've always belonged here. The Polish draft beer is addictive and the wines are diverse. We've had some light plates, kielbasa, pierogies and such but mostly just hang out. Nice crowd and good events.
