An odd building with one dining room. A great selection of seafood on a chalkboard plus a full menu to choose from. Nice inexpensive drinkable wine to go with the fish. I had Mahi, grilled and not overcooked. It was great, except I didn't need the large amount of butter it was cooked in. Good service although 2 servers for... More

Have been at this restaurant many times. Owner is the cook. Fish is the freshes. Servers have been their a while as well. That tells you a lot about how the local restaurant treats it's employees. Try it it is very good. Do not expect dim lights and atmosphere. Just great food especially fish

Best seafood in NE Ohio. Fish is perfectly cooked. Delicious chowders. Service is ok. Atmosphere is ok. Wish they did carry out dinners.

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. I just wanted to clarify one thing - we do in fact offer carry out. You are welcome to order anything that is on our menu for carry out. However, we do not offer any sort of delivery. Thanks again. More

Recently had dinner with my sister at Hil Mak's and have been there many times before. Enjoyed my dinner - beer battered halibut - super fish and sides. However, the parking lot was a sheet of ice.. Need to make sure the customer doesn't break a leg/hip on the way to or from dinner by spending a bit of money... More

By the way there are 17 Covered Bridges in the area. From the longest... More

The have specials on their black board over the live lobster tank. We have visited here many times and will keep coming back. Great big scallops... More

We went to Hil-Mak with high expectations because we had heard it was a great seafood restaurant. Sadly, it did not meet our expectations. We all ordered bowls of soup and could not believe how small they were. We noticed they offer "large bowls" of soup and now we know why. While most of our food tasted good, it was... More
