Pretzel bites and bratwurst brought back memories of travel in Europe. A warm welcome preceded our lunch, including a spot for our small dog. Recommend we will!

Favorite spot in troy. Lovely patios and garden, great food, good beer and wine list, and exception staff!

With the heaters in the patio space, it's my favorite spot year round!

Menu was a little short and price was a little high for what it was, but it's a fun place with good beer.

Thank you for joining us for brunch! We pride ourselves on our focused menu with handmade items. Our prices are a direct reflection of our costs of operations i.e. foods, staffing, and very extensive property management for the year-round stone beer garden. We hope to see you again!

Hi Melissa. We just revamped our Disco Balls recipe and process to help ensure they do not get overcooked! Thanks for the feedback. We hope to see you again soon.

We loved it. They’re so smart to continue outdoor dining even in the cold weather. With heaters we were very comfortable.

#FUNFACT We have had the beer garden open all winter for 6 years now! We strive to create a fun indoor-outdoor adventure dining experience all year for active people i.e. skiers, hikers, and great friends and family. :) We will continue to be doing that post-Covid!

We stopped in for brunch on a Saturday afternoon. Great food, drinks --and very friendly service. A very unique spot; we need to come back in the warm weather and sit out in the garden.

Love this place! The effort to keep everyone sitting outside nice and toasty is great, from the cushions provided and the placement of heaters everywhere. Food and beers are always on point and were exactly what we were in the mood for when we went. Will definitely be back again soon!

We are so glad we found this place. The brunch burger was fantastic, as were the potato discs. The staff were incredibly friendly and tentative. We sat outside and were more than happy with the warmth from the heaters. We will most definitely be going back at some point!!

Yet another amazing date night at The Hill! This rustic and quiet setting is the best setting inside or outside in the Capital Region! The European and domestic beer selection is never boring and always full of flavor! We will be back again and again!

This is one of gems of Troy. No restaurant in the area like it. The owners have gone out of their way to give The Hill a homey and inviting atmosphere. Their investment in filtration systems and ability to accommodate social distancing is another gesture to how much they care about their customers both regulars and new faces (covered by masks obviously). I whole heartedly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to experience European cuisine and want to try someplace new!

I’m not sure why Muza on the Hill was not packed! It is the absolutely perfect place to go with the current situation. Easily social distance, in the grotto like individual eating area surrounded by natural stone and greenery. We watch the moon and the stars huddled around the propane heater by candlelight and felt totally safe and normal for the first time in a long time being out. You can sit with a small group, or just two and get date nights back again. It is a smaller menu, but our schnitzel sandwiches were delicious. I highly recommend getting the cheesecake with currants as well. Great beer selection also and very sweet servers and bartender! They provide you with pillows so that your warm sitting on the metal chairs or stone benches. Another couple that came actually brought blankets and I think that’s a fantastic idea. We would’ve probably stayed longer if we had them with us. All I can say is if you are dying to get out there and do something different, that should be your first stop!

We had a table reserved outside on new years eve 5pm and it was ready when we arrived. Atmosphere was pleasant and festive. Wish that they left the tree up till after new years. Food was hot, beer was cold.heat lamps were on since it was cold. Although quieter, due to Covid restrictions. We had a good time.
