Meandered to Hillstone for a late lunch about 2:30 pm. Is there a time of day when they're not busy? The bar was full of excited chatter, and we were escorted immediately to our table. The spinach artichoke dip has not lost any of its deliciousness since my first visit to this restaurant over 10 years ago. I split the... More

Can't ever go wrong here and I learned something new a week ago and that is the Beltline location takes reservations! I went with my mom and sister and we split a whole lot of things. My favorites still include the spinach dip (even left overs were awesome!), prime rib, and the bbq ribs. Actually, I have never had anything... More

Hillstone Restaurant (formerly known as Houston's) is one of my favorite go-to restaurants, primarily because of its always consistent food and service. It is always busy and they don't take reservations, so plan on a brief wait. Their artichoke appetizer is awesome and a must-have. I love their ahi tuna salad and French dip sandwich--the best I have ever had.... More

If you like a nice full body red, try the Mi Sueño. The grilled artichokes are amazing, prime rib or the oriental chicken salad I never can make up my mind. Something that isn't on the menu is the lunch portion prime rib that you can get a dinner time and comes with texas toast (a better deal and plenty... More

My wife and I have dined here for years, and never been disappointed. Today we wanted something simple. We ate at the bar, saw one of our favorite bartenders. We wanted simple today so ordered burgers. Delicious. Had their spicy mayo for dipping the fries. Our favorites here are the smoked salmon appetizer, artichoke appetizer, ribs (oh, the ribs!), trout,... More

Been coming to this restaurant for 10 years, but it has really lost it's edge. Menu hasn't changed except for the increased prices, and the staff are just running through the paces to turn tables as fast they can. On the upside, the food is consistently good, and the wine list has some good choices even by the glass. However,... More

Good food to be sure and certainly people like to be seen here. It reminded me up an uptown kips though. People kept brushing past my shoulder while I tried to eat and the wait staff was friendly but in a pushy kind of way. This is a money making place and this seems to imbue everything with its purpose.... More

This location has it all, Great Setting, Fabulous Service, Splendid Menu, Great Bloody Mary's, Delicious Mimosa's, Friendly Patrons, Fabulous Food! Like I said " It has Everything!" Sometimes tough to find a parking space... This location is one of the best choices for dates, meeting friends, business lunches, etc.

You will love the barbeque ribs, salmon on a plank and crab cakes at this local favorite. Key lime pie is a good choice for dessert.

I've been craving the Grilled Chicken salad that is served by Houston's/Hillstone and was happy to have a chance to enjoy one last night. Everything was great - the ambiance, service, drinks and the salad. My only disappointment was the starter - Foccacia with olives. I was expecting flat bread but it was thick slices of spongy bread with 3... More
