love this place !!!!! Good food at a great price. Thursday nights is burger night for $10 including fries and a glass of wine, and they are busy....
They are running specials most of the time.

“Always go here”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Hillview has great food and good drinks. It's a smaller place in the Southside neighborhood near the hospital, but is nicely decorated and has a friendly atmosphere. The happy hour is good and the early bird specials are nicely done too. You can tell there are many regulars who come there. the lava cake dessert is sinfully delicious. Save room! Lobster quesadillas are fabulous. The sliders are good too. Southwest spring rolls are tasty as well. The glasses of wine are very generous and they make a good cosmo.

“Never fails to please”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

I sometimes forget about the Hillview Grill because it isn't new or trendy, but I am always happy when I decide to eat there. There's something for everyone, from vegetarians to meat-and-potatoes types; the service is prompt and pleasant; and most important, the food is always tasty and well-prepared. It's quiet enough so you can have a conversation with your companions.

“Hillview Grill is a good deal with awesome food!”
Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

Over the past several months I have eaten here and have never been disappointed. The happy hr/ early dining specials (esp the salmon) or the small plates like the flatbread pizzas are delicious. Plus the friendly & helpful wait staff make it a great neighborhood restaurant!!

“A great place to dine”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

My husband and I dine with a small group every Weds. evening. Hillview Grill is one of our favorites. The wait staff is friendly and attentive, the food is good and the ambiance is pleasant and cozy. We usually make a reservation and when we arrive our favorite table is set and the waitress even remembers our usual beverages. There is a very reasonable earlybird (before 6PM) menu, special offers such as a full burger meal for $10 on Thursdays. Their soups are really good...Weds. is usually Mushroom Brie. They offer a delicious Lobster Bisque every day. I can definitely recommend this restaurant.
