“Wonderful discovery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Easter Sunday we took a walk around Richmond Beach and developed an appetite. Searching for something close by, we happened upon Hills' -- what a find. It is a great local, unpretentious restaurant in an obscure spot, which is easy to miss. It was a wonderful discovery. The staff was warm and welcoming, the ambiance pleasant, and the food very good. It is true, the menu is not huge; but it's better to do a few things well than to try to please "the world." One of us had lamb shank and the other pork Milanese. Both were tasty. They offer fish tacos (a favorite of ours) but the menu said the fish was battered, which didn't seem to fit with fish tacos. There were both more sophisticated offerings as well as simple ones, helping to please many palates. Our server, while being quite young, was very knowledgeable about the wines being offered . . .which is always appreciated. We live over on the east side and wish Hills' was over there! We really enjoyed the whole experience.

“Wonderful Local Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We came here last Saturday with two other couples and had an amazing time. The service was great and the food was even better. I got the lemon chicken and my husband ordered the mixed grill. We were both extremely happy with our choices.

“Good food, great service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

A little mix-up regarding a lost reservation was resolved by seating us at the bar, and comping us the first drink. A great way to handle that situation! Soon enough, we were seated, and the service was great; friendly, informative, and attentive without hovering. The menu is varied, if not extensive, and the food was very good. Lamb shank was just right, and the other members of our party were very pleased with their choices, as well. Berry cobbler ala mode for dessert was fantastic! Will definitely return!

“Good but more choices please?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Love that we have this great place so close to us. Food is good, atmosphere and service above average. Only complaint is that the menu is limited. Since they cater mostly to locals in this out-of-the-way location, they need to shake it up a little.

“Best restaurant, Hands down”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012 via mobile

A nice neighborhood place with an eclectic menu with daily specials and an extensive beer and wine list. The staff is friendly, efficient and attentive. They serve one of the best hamburgers in Seattle. Make a reservation as the place is always busy and the parking lot is congested. Keep it a Shoreline secret.
