Love, love, love this place. Ask if the grilled artichokes are in season. If so, they are a must! If not, the spinach artichoke dip is a consistent favorite. Favorite salads are the Thai Noodle or the Club. These are large entree salads and can't be beat. Ribs are fall off the bone delicious too.

Sometime ago, Houston's became Hillstone (sibling rivalry with the city to the south?)...the good news is that the quality of food, service, atmosphere, etc. has not changed. This is still a great place to dine or for a casual meal. Be forewarned, it's almost always crowded...even at off-peak meal times. Make a reservation or be prepared to wait. If you... More

Food is always good along with service. We go at least once a month if not more. They have a fabulous pianist in the bar area on Thursday - Saturday named Ralph. Anything you eat there is amazing

My wife and me are not from Dallas, but travel there at least twice a year, and we always schedule a dinner at Hillstone. It is our favorite dinner spot in Dallas, located in the nice Preston Ave. We went there last Saturday, without a reservation and were told it would be 30 minutes to get a table for us.... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat! The food is delicious I've had nearly everything on the menu the Hawaiian Steak Is my favorite and the lemon drop martini is the bomb! I gave it 4⭐️'s because of the 1 single hard wood bench you sit on when your waiting to be table seated. On weekends its standing... More

We eat here at least twice a month - usually for lunch, but dinner is excellent as well. For lunch you can't go wrong with the French Dip sandwich, hamburger or ribs. But if those don't sound good they also have some great salads and fish dishes. Don't miss the reds beans and rice (Mondays only) or the key lime... More

We go to Hillstones almost monthly and it is always a great experience. Service, drinks and food are always top notch and the straight forward, American classics menu can't be beat. Although there is often a long wait at prime dinner/lunch times, the restaurant does take reservations.

I found a seat at the bar on a Wednesday night (very busy). I ordered Dublin Dr. Pepper, as I am pregnant, and I also ordered the French dip. The bartenders were friendly and attentive. My drink stayed filled but my food was taking quite a while. Without me pointing it out, the bartender noticed despite how crowded the bar... More

I have been going to this restaurant for years. It was Houston's before they changed the name to Hillstone. The food is good, but the prices are out of line. I ordered a vegetable plate. It was $20. Pretty pricey for what you get. It was one of the places I always visited when I went to Dallas. It won't... More
