One of my favorite places for lunch or dinner! Went for date night on Friday and had an amazing meal. Service, food and atmosphere always on point. Beautiful sunset after dinner enjoyed with cocktails. Love Hillstone- never disappoints!!

Thai beef and tuna salads are large and a great choice for lunch. Spinach and artichoke dip is also excellent but I suppose a lot of calories! We eat here often...both at the bar and at the tables/booths. Really nice lodge feel and peaceful views over lake added to great service and a decent menu make this a highly recommended... More

While this is a chain it does not seem like it. Service is great most of the time. Menu is simple and nothing on it is bad. Children's menu is good too. You can sit inside and see Lake Killarney or eat outside if you prefer. Food is the best with variety.

I have been going to Houston's aka Hillstones since I was growing up in South Florida. This is the most consistent restaurant with great food! The view at this location in Winter Park is the best spot in town for a great time out, romantic date, and just to unwind. The back outdoor area has wooden lawn chairs throughout the... More

The food, service, and atmosphere was superb. The entire restaurant, inside and out, was packed, yet the level of performance was excellent.

Lunch with friends here Saturday. Our first time here but not for our lunch companions. On arrival restaurant was busy, not full but quite noisy. Asked for a quiet table and got just that, away at the far end in a corner with a lovely view of the lake and was nice and quiet. Service was extremely good as was... More

My wife and I just happened to pass by and said, "let's try it". To my wife's surprise they had what tasted like the spinach and artichoke dip that Houston's had. The service was superb. Our waitress, Kristen was the best. As I was thinking to ask for something, either her or her assistant would show up with it. The... More

First off let me say, the location is beautiful. You can enjoy a bottle of wine and appetizers out on the dock they have, or enjoy sitting near a fire. Once inside, the staff and tables are perfect. The lunch is fantastic for impressing new business connections and the view at night is perfect for a romantic setting. The steak... More

The food at Hillstone is consistently good. The view on the lake is unique in Winter Park and spectacular at sunset. There have been times when we have had inconsistent service to the point of them offering to comp a meal. I'd really rather get good service from the beginning than a free dessert that I don't eat. The costs... More

Absolutely delicious from start to finish. The Stone crab claws as an appetizer or Primo. The fried shrimp and the pan seared snapper or some of the best I've ever had. This is a cannot miss place keep up the good work I'll be back
