Hil Mak's is an institution in Ashtabula, Ohio. It is not pretentious; more like having dinner in a friend's (very busy) dining room. The seafood is always very fresh and well-prepared. The side dishes are plain--potatoes of various kinds (baked, twice-baked, fries), a steamed green...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.
