We love this place. They. Refresh your drink with chilled classes. The guacamolre is to die for. The only place you can get artichokes, which are wonderful, but not available on our last two visits. Ambiance and service are beyond complaint.

I love the setting on the Lake & the food is fresh & delicious. Brought my older grandparents there in an attempt to find them a new spot for date night as they are creatures of habit. The staff was able to accommodate their 'old people' requests and they loved it. The waitress was so concerned with their order that... More

Have eaten here on several occasions and always had excellent service and food. We would not have found this as it is off the tourist area of Orlando, but were introduced by our local friends and we make sure we visit each time we are in Orlando. Setting is beautiful. Makes a lovely venue.

We eat here at least twice per week because the food and service is simply the most consistently the best to be had in Central Florida. Their Steaks and seafood can be wood grilled. Their Hot fudge Sundae uses Belgian chocolate sliced off from huge blocks and then melted over the ice cream and topped with candied pecans and whipped... More

I've visited Hillstone twice and can't wait to go back again. Everything is suburb...setting, food and service. Don't miss the Thai steak salad, chicken salad or the Hawaiian rib eye. Just a great restaurant!

It's this simple. One's first personal contact upon entering a restaurant is the most important. In this, first hand example, we never got to experience the outstanding dishes at Hillstone because...we were blind sided by this Blonde B.... of a hostess! In my many...many years of culinary ownership and exploration, I have never been so negatively perused over. Amazingly, she... More

Food, Service, Environment, this place is remarkable. From the time you walk in, you will be greeted by a smile by the hostess and an option to grab one of the many eclectic cocktails or glasses of wine. While waiting for your table, wander along the waterfront yard or dock as the sun sets over the horizon of downtown Orlando.... More

We have eaten here several times over the years and love the location. Watching the sun go down over the water while sipping on a glass of white wine, is so relaxing. Do try their grilled artichokes for an app and their fresh fish selections are delicious. My only disappointment, Is that they no longer have bar service outside on... More

Formerly Houston's. Our favorites are the Hawaiian Ribeye dinner and Chargrilled Artichoke and peel and eat shrimp appetizers (the artichokes are "hit and miss" - don't pass them up if they have them). This afternoon Bryan D. was our server (excellent). Today we split a special appetizer of guacamole with chips and a lunch special of Pan Fried Yellowtail Snapper... More
