If you like fish, this is the place to go. Never had a bad meal here and I look forward to each visit. Short of living on the east coast, it can't be beat.

The restaurant is small so if seafood/fish is on your agenda, make a Reservation! If you don't, this restaurant is well worth the wait. Generous portions, smiling, efficient servers all add to the positive rating. We will go back again...and again...and again!

This is the way the good restaurants used to be. The fish is fresh and the perch is wonderful. We were really pleasantly surprised by this somewhat tucked away place.

I have frequented Hil Maks for over 22 years and have never been disappointed with a meal. My favorite is the stuffed flounder along with clam chowder. It is one of the best seafood restaurants I have eaten at

We can count on great food-consistently. My husband would go there every week, but I like a little variety. Fresh fish from the blackboard or you can order from the menu. Prices about $17 - $26. Very crowded; customers and wait staff can hardly move...More

My wife and I make special efforts to go to Hil-Mak when we are near Ashtabula. We have taken the opportunities the choose several different items and have never been disappointed. From walleye to swordfish.
