The Topside restaurant opened in 1982 as the brainchild of Sumner and Jean Midgett. They owned the general store downstairs and realized the need for a restaurant in the Shiloh community. They completed a beautiful renovation of the second story of what used to be Shiloh High School and created a spacious country style restaurant. The architecture of the restaurant has been preserved with beautiful Juniper Paneling. The family continues to operate the grocery, hardware store and gas station below the restaurant creating a one stop shop for all of your needs.
