While Hillstone is more casual than many of its steakhouse counterparks, it enforces a dress code: Tank tops, flip flops, team athletic attire and "provocative clothing" are frowned upon and they "ask that hats be removed in the dining room and collared shirts for men."
The Biltmore neighborhood in which Hillstone is located is affluent and business oriented, so it shouldn't come as a surprise they're making this request. The decor offers many upscale, yet casual accents, from hand-carved stone walls to a fireplace on the patio to original artwork from local artists.
As far as the menu, Hillstone offers sushi (spicy tuna rolls, coconut shrimp roll, Thai tuna roll), burgers, salads, sandwiches and entrees like pan-roasted salmon, barbecue pork ribs and USDA prime filet.
