i cannot say enough about Hillstone. The water view is perfect, the lodge style open architecture is beautiful, the staff is on point, and the food is ALWAYS flawless. My wife is vegetarian and she loves the veggie burger, and salads. i love everything on their menu, specifically anything they offer that is artichoke related, or steak related. Great place... More

Service is impeccable. Staff is efficient and attractive. Food is consistent. The menu is boring. Has not changed in 20 years. I had a Thai chicken salad. Huge portion. Could not finish. Wish they would change up menu.

Food and service excellent always. We are never disappointed and, I admit, we are fussy and spoiled. You can bring your own wine with no corkage fee.

Enjoyed a wonderful salad with fresh kale and added a crab cake! It was so yummy, seasoned just right.

I have eaten at this restaurant approximately six times. Each time has been great. The food and wine selections have always been wonderful.

They have both inside and outside dining. Outside... More

Houston's used to be my favorite restaurant. Many a business lunch and dinner there. Only been to Hillstone's a handful of times including tonight. I have very high expectations for a restaurant in this price range and they were met. Sadly, there was nothing that did not meet with my approval.😉 I look forward to a return visit

Rarely disappointed, we have been fans for years when it was called Houston's. When a steak comes to mind or when a Chicago dip is yearned for, Hillstone's is always the answer. Great atmosphere, wonderful lake views especially at sunset, good service, and lovely food. It's really the best prime rib in Winter Park, FL.

Nice lake front atmosphere. The food is always amazing. Please try the spinach dip and smoked salmon appetizer. The key lime pie is to die for. It is the best key lime pie I have ever had, and I always order it when I am there. The service is great and location is good.
