Great drinks and snacks in a lovely bar just a couple of blocks from our hotel. We enjoyed the live jazz.

The perfect place to sit with friends or bring business associates. The atmosphere is relaxing and the food was wonderful. Several healthy choices which I loved.

We have been to Hillstone twice and will be back again. Tucked under a Barnes and Noble, we walked downstairs to be greeted by the cool sound of a jazz group. The restaurant is softly lit giving it a comfortable, clubby atmosphere. We had made a reservation, but our table was not ready. This gave us an opportunity to sit... More

Hillstone / Huston, whatever. they have one of the best ribs i've ever eaten. The starters are great, atmosphere is very nice and the staff are doing everything with a smile.

This place is considered a bit on the pricey side, but the ambiance is really nice and the food is very good for a chain. The baby back ribs fall off the bone, and are the best!!!

I am not a big meat eater- so when my friend wanted to take me there for lunch one day, I was a little nervous- knowing the prices are high and I wasn't sure I'd like it. From the moment I walked in.. I was in awe of the ambiance. At first, it's like you walk into a mall, but... More

I would have given this restaurant 4 1/2 or 5 stars based on the food. Unfortunately the service took a great deal away from our experience. We were four adults in our 60s. We started with the spinach dip because it had been mentioned in so many reviews. It was, indeed, wonderful. I would recommend it. Two of us had... More

We went to Hillsides the night of our daughters graduation. It was amazing. The ambiance was very cozy, the food was delicious, the service was excellent, and they even allowed us to bring our own two bottles of libations, and they kept them chilled and poured up for us. I highly recommend Houstons/Hillstones!

This chain took over the former Houston's. Huge young professional crowd; very busy bar scene. The restaurant is dark, so if you prefer more light this is not your place. I found it to be cozy. The waitstaff is terrific and attentive. The menu is limited and seasonal, leaning toward more fish than meat dishes. Everything we ordered was well... More
