Hilltop Restaurant and Garden, a famous East Texas landmark founded by renowned herbalist and cook, Madalene Hill, has been part of The Retreat at Artesian Lakes for over 22 years. The quaint dining room overlooks a lake and is surrounded by windows to enjoy the breathtaking view. Outside, a deck provides additional seating surrounded by trees and potted herbs. The garden and a quiet gazebo are located within walking distance.
Hilltop offers casual resort fare for lunch and dinner, Thursday through Saturday, and custom catering menus for special events and retreats.
Holidays such as Valentine’s, Easter, and Mother’s Day are celebrated with special menus.
We offer a variety of jellies, chutneys, relishes, teas and other specialty items produced in Hilltop’s kitchen and sold both at the Restaurant and at the resort Gift Shop located inside the Hospitality House.
