On our trip to Ohio from California, our friends took us to Hil Mak for lunch. They had heard it was good. It was so much more than we expected.

Hil Mak restaurant ( and fish mkt) have been summer dining staples in our family for decades. You just don't get better quality, better prepared and simply excellent seafood anywhere. Yep, tuna, oysters and lobster on Lake Erie seems oxymoronic but I promise you! Give it a try and you'll love it.

I've eaten twice at Hil Mak's - once in 2014 and once recently. Unprepossessing from the outside, the ambiance inside is unusual - poor lighting makes it very dark, there are stuffed fish and nautical bric-a-brac all round the walls interspersed with interesting photographs, and its freezing cold (so cold that even with the outside temperature in the 80s, we...

This is one of our fav stops each time we come to Geneva-on-the-Lake area. Great family owned seafood stop! They are knowledgable in helping complete your order if you're not sure how much fish you need.

This was a great visit! Very good service and food! We visited with my parents who go at least once a week! My dad has celiac disease so their food accommodates his gluten free diet.

If you visit Ashtabula from out of town, you have to visit Hil Mak's. This seafood restaurant is amazing! I love the clam chowder and twice baked potatoes. It's best to call for reservations.

The dinners are very good and get good size portions. The fish is very fresh I can tell you that. They have specials for what they get certain weeks but the perch and walleye are the specialties and prepared excellent. Service is good and they can be very busy and still give good service. So excellent food and service and... More
