ALWAYS DELICIOUS.

The food at Hillstone's is fresh, prepared to your liking , ample proportions, attractively plated, and always hot from the kitchen. The service is great. It is not to pushy, not to slack, it is just the right amount of pampering to make you feel you've spent your hard earned money wisely. It is... read more

Sunday night date night. Sat at the bar. Great people watching and just love the feel of the place overlooking the lake. Our usual favorites, the grilled artichoke, chicken salad and fries. No matter whether you call if Houston's or Hillstone it's just a great spot.

Lived in Atlanta for years and was a frequent diner at Houston's. Moved to Michigan and sadly, we do not have the Hillstone Group there (please come!), so we seek them out wherever we travel. Whenever I visit my Mom we head to Hillstone in Winter Park. The service is tops and the food is always fresh and delicious. This... More

The service is outstanding and the food and staff never interrupt the flow of your lunch meeting. The quality of the food is always excellent, and my favorites are the jalapeno dip and chips, the artichokes that the greatest critic of artichokes will love, gulf coast fish sandwich and their cobbler! Parking is very limited, so be sure to have... More

I have been enjoying this restaurant for years. It used to be called Houston’s and changed its name a while back but that is all that really changed. The menu, service at atmosphere remained top notch. If you are visiting for the first time, remember to come an hour or so early. That way you can enjoy the outdoor garden... More
