Really good fried seafood! Love the variety platter. Surprised they do not offer deep fried oysters, or scallops. Two of my favorites. Atmosphere and restaurant could use a MAJOR renovation. Seating area is small, cramped, and not very comfortable. The place looks clean, but due...More

We have had the pleasure of dining at Hil-Maks several times over the years. You can't find a better Lake Erie Perch dinner anywhere...so delicious. Their New England clam chowder is the best I've ever had...creamy and full of clams. Their dinners come with a...More

Recently had a wonderful dinner at Hil Mak's. I recommend making reservations if planning on dining hear on a Friday or Sat night. I've been dinning here for years and have never been disappointed.

We frequent Hil Mak's about twice a month. My husband perfers the perch dinner while I make a bowl of clam chowder my meal. Also, the rolls that come with the meal are out of this world. Highly reccommend for a wonderful meal.

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!
