The street view of this country diner does nothing to entice you in, but once inside you will encounter warm country hospitality from the owners. The menu offers the typical diner fare....the food is all home cooked and very tasty. I could do without the dead stuffed deer dressed in hunter camouflage in the back dining area. I found it...

This was a small and surprising find. Good home style food and great service. The atmosphere was like a neighborhood hangout where people knew each other, an Adirondak version of Cheers. As an outsider I felt welcomed and entertained by the dinner conversations. Food was good, fast and friendly service. I would definitely revisit.

We love Hillside! It is a must for our visits. Our waitress is always wonderful, especially since we usually have a large group with kids. She is so patient and friendly. The food is good and our coffee cups never run empty.

Go here with an appetite. The food was plentiful but was not exceptional. If you are looking for a cheap way to feed a large family this is it but if you are looking for a great meal, look elsewhere.

This is the first place we chose solely on Trip Advisor recommendations and we were very pleased with the result. We got hungry just after leaving the Fort Drum area and had not seen anything inviting so as we headed south on 58 we turned to Trip Advisor and noticed this gem was not far after we got on SR...

The server was really friendly and the food tasted great and there was lots of it. We were waited on immediately and we didn't have to wait long for our food. The diner was small and outdated, but that's where you find the best food.
