Great ribs and seafood

This restaurant has very good food for couples where one does not favor seafood. The ribs and steaks are top notch and my wife truly loves the crab cakes and the Captains platter. The atmosphere is quiet and pleasant. The wait staff is pleasant and professional. The prices are a little high for the... read more

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

This is one of the best restaurants in Ashtabula and has been for as long as I remember. I am a local and come here regularly. Plus I always bring out of town guests here. Great food and excellent service.

We have been going to Hil-Maks for years. The fresh seafood is the best, my personal favorite is halibut with the key lime beurre blanc sauce...2nd choice is the sockeye or king salmon. The staff is so friendly even when it may be busy. If we can't get out for the evening we will frequently go to their market and... More

If you like perch or walleye, this is the place to go! It's fresh and well prepared, and the servings are generous. It does cost a bit more than other restaurants, but the quality is worth it!

Went for a special birthday treat with my family. Had haddock and scallops with a lobster bisque. The meal was delicious, but priced at $26 a plate. Kind of steep for what I am used to paying for but it's a great place for very special occasions. Best seafood in the area

We ate at Hil Mak's on a busy Saturday evening when there were many people in town for a sailing race. Although the place was packed, they squeezed us in. The hostess (who I suspect was the owner) was chatty and quite friendly. There were plenty of people working to keep us in water, drinks, and a clear table. I... More

I read about this restaurant here on trip advisor. I went very early to get a table and a parking spot. I was seated immediately. The food was good. I liked my house salad with the add-ons of bacon and croutons. The perch was good, but, not excellent. The baked potato wasn't awful, but the center was hard. I ordered... More

Wednesday eve about 7:30 pm and probably about 7 tables open. We stood at the counter 10 or 12 minutes before we were seated. The woman directed us to our seats and went about her way busily doing this and that. Drink orders were taken and it was sometime before they arrived. I ordered a cup of clam chowder and... More
