It was Monday night. Me and my cousin we decided to go to the Hillstone after a full day of theme park hoping. We were hungry, very hungry... so take that aspect into consideration. Since Houston's times that joint's got really good reputation and this time it kept same high level of service. We've had Dutch country chicken and Hawaiian... More

This was my third visit here and it has never disappointed! We visit our daughter who lives in Orlando and we have decided the same food, location and service in UK would be (at least) double the price! This time to celebrate my husband' s birthday we had a table looking out at the lake and ended our meal with... More

Hillstone is still Houston's. Its the same great food, great steaks and my kids think they serve the best hamburger in Central Florida. They are consistent in their quality and excellent service. I'm only sorry you can't eat out on the dock anymore.

Hillstone (formerly Houstons) provides high quality food at substantial but not ridiculous prices. It is not an inexpensive meal but the service is usually first rate. There are few specials but the food is almost always consistent. It is a well-run business but you will not feel rushed.

I'm a big fan of sweets and when I have cravings I will go there and order the apple walnut cobbler! Great place and delicious food!

Great food, great atmosphere! You can't beat enjoying a good cocktail or glass of wine in their back yard by the lake. Whne available, don't skip the grilled artichokes!

Staying in Orlando, we drove out of our way to have dinner at this Hillstone's. I'm a big fan and always love the food and service. This particular location was a below average experience for both of us. Every restaurant can have an off day so I'll chalk it up to them being insanely busy the night we went.

Hillstone was recommended and thus we returned for a second evening meal!-last minute decision on a September Saturday at 8-crowded with a 25 minute wait so we decided to leave. The manager caught us outside immediately, offered us a seat on the patio while waiting -we received our drinks and appetizers sap and a table was offered within 20 minutes.... More
