Great place but it burned down today. I presume they will rebuild because the parking lot is always full. It is a family run restaurant and I've never had a bad meal there. Great seafood and steaks. Frame building and no fire hydrants (all water for fire brought in by tanker truck) is a bad combination for a restaurant. Maybe... More

I stopped in here for dinner and ordered the babyback ribs. They were fall off the bone tender and had nice flavor. Nice atmosphere. The prices seemed a little high for the area but would recommend.

I stopped at the Hillside on a Saturday afternoon with a couple of friends for drinks and a bite to eat. This was my first time at this place, and it was a great visit. We sat at the bar tables. The service was great, very attentive and friendly. We had a variety of appetizers and each one was fresh,... More

This restaurant has the best Crab Cakes, and their steaks are "to die for". The service is excellent, as the owner frequently comes around to your table to be sure everything is satisfactory.

They have excellent Steaks. Their prices are a little higher than the surrounding area, but their food makes up for the difference. Highly recommend this place to anyone that hasn't tried it before. All of their food from Burgers to Shrimp to Steak is very good. I have never been dissatisfied with the service either. I've visited the restaurant about... More

The Hillside is known for their steaks, but check out their wings. They are awesome!

I have eaten here several times and mostly the food has been good. My last experience was on a Sunday afternoon and the food was cold, lousy and did not have the taste as before. I am not sure if it was an off-day for them or the good cook was off that day. I have not been back since,... More

This place needs some serious remodeling done to it. The food isn't bad but don't look around to much. I have to say the seafood is way over priced.
