This restaurant never disappoints me. Lunch or dinner and the food is good and I leave so satisfied. Love the Ahi Tuna Salad and their pork ribs. Have had fish there and very good. They are located on a lake and you can sit outside and watch the sun go down. I am not a bar person but on a... More

Had been at the predecessor restaurant years ago - which was good. But the food now is excellent. I had the fish special which was prepared wonderfully but the sides put the meal over the top ( sautéed peppers and Peruvian corn -separate sides). We shared a warmed Apple/walnut tart w ice cream for dessert and this is another winner.... More

Hillstone is my favorite restaurant to eat outside. There are tables overlooking the lake and manicured grounds. The menu is a little small, but what they make is outstanding. Fabulous bar! Great service.

Its all good here. The food is fabulous. The restaurant is on a lake in Winter Park, so the setting and atmosphere is excellent. And the service is the best (I do have to say I miss Chris, the previous manager, not because the new one is bad, but Chris took care of us like we were family. Thank you... More

We have visited this restaurant on several occasions and it has never disappointed. The service is wonderfully executed by the staff and the food is truly delicious. We have sat inside and outside with the Lake View and they are both very enjoyable. We enjoy the Smoked Salmon Appetizer pictured above, the steaks are always well made and juicy and... More

Hillstone is awesome - make sure to have reservations or plan on waiting. The spinach artichoke dip is the BEST, the grilled artichokes are amazing and the ribs are fall off the bone yummy. Actually everything is awesome...one of the best burgers in Orlando.

Hillstone is a lakefront restaurant in Winter Park with a beautiful view. I have liked everything I have ordered on my many visits. My favorite is the fire-grilled artichokes with a delicious aioli. Be sure to ask if they are available. The only negative is that it can be noisy when it is crowded, so sometimes not the best place... More

I have been here many times even when it was called Houston's and food has always been excellent. Beef properly prepared. You get rare when you ask for it etc. Sides are tasty. Service excellent. Parking lot always full both lunch and dinner so the valet parking is quite convenient. Highly recommended.
