Took our son here. He wanted to have oysters, before leaving the area for a job down south. We had a great meal! Everything that we ordered was nearly perfect. You need to have the twice baked potato, was great. All seafood seemed fresh, and...More

Old style home town seafood shop and restaurant. Popular with locals. Not at all fancy, but the food was great. My halibut and scallops were perfectly cooked, flaking just right, baked in lobster bisque.

I can not eat fried Cod or Scrod anywhere else now! It is light and flakey with a superb breading that is never soggy. I've had seafood all over Cleveland and in many other states and this ranks among the finest in the land. I...More

We had dinner at Hilmak's with our family. The chowder had to be sent back because it was cold, The food was mediocre at a quality restaurant price. They were fairly busy but not enough to wait 2 hours for our meals. That is unexceptable..
