This is our fourth visit to this fine restaurant, this time with my wife and business partner from out of town. This place is always packed with customers, whether it be a weekday or weekend dinner. Valet parking is awesome and never a hassle. We were seated close to the window so could see the incredible view. All 3 of... More

Hillstones in excellent in more ways than 1. Lunch or dinner I have never had bad service or a bad meal. Their menu doesn't change between lunch and dinner so both meals are perfect. The atmosphere is wonderful with a view of Lake Killarney and beautiful grounds around this restaurant. The servers don't rush, open our wine we bring in,... More

This is a mini review as I did not really spend a whole lot of time checking this place out during my meal. Atmosphere - It is quite nice. In the back of the restaurant is a lake and you can sit there as you wait to get seated. There is a bit of a garden outside and just a... More

My significant other and I are frequent diners at this spot, conveniently located near my home. He always orders the grouper sandwich. I switch it up! I have had the salmon, the burgers, and specials - all enjoyed thoroughly. The bar serves a solid dirty martini. Once, our experience was not what we expected. The server appropriately brought a manager... More

I always have a wonderful experience at Hillstone. The service is excellent, although sometimes a little confusing to determine whom to make a request to because of the number of different people coming to the table. The water glass was never empty and there was a nice pace to the meal. We asked for and were seated near a window,... More

We had a group of five in our party and the service was very good. Once we had finished eating, though, we felt pushed to leave so the table could be turned over. Considering how much was spent, I felt it was unnecessary for that to take place. We didn't linger terribly long, and one in the party was still... More

Hillstones is by far one of the best restaurants in Winter Park. The food is consistently excellent and the service is wonderful. When a waiter passes your table, they always stop to check if you need anything. The ambiance is beautiful as the restaurant sits right on the lake. Lots of outside seating when the weather permits. This is our... More

This is a part of the Houston's chain. The food is good, service is great and the prices are mid range for what you are getting, compared to high end steak houses. The best part of the location is the view of the lake and if the weather cools off, the outside seating. One irritating thing (policy may have changed... More
