Have been there numerous times. On last visit I noticed many of the old faces were gone. All of the food items with the exception of the Kale Salad were great as usual. I guess we will give them a pass this time and see...More

The food and the service were both excellent. It was pricey but worth it. We had the fish special- sole and it melted in your mouth. We were outside on the lake and the view was spectacular.

Hillstone easily became our favorite restaurant last year and I thought it would only make sense to propose to my now fiancée in their garden. I spoke with Michelle Bailey about reservations for an extremely large party that would be celebrating our engagement with us...More

Great food, great environment, pretty good service. Extremely similar to Houston's if you're from up north...Try the ahi tuna salad. One of my favorite salads I've ever had! Will definitely be back to walk outside and check out the lakeside view.

After a couple of years I came back looking for the former Houston 's. I was wondering, if it still is so good. And ... it is. Came with two 14 years old nephews and enjoyed the burgers. Delicious!! Staff very friendly and attentive. Great....More

There are some vegetarian dishes available but am not sure if they are truly vegan. You would need to call. The nearby Ethos restaurant is a large and varied menu, very tasty vegan restaurant for all ages.
