This is on the waterfront. It was very nice with excellent service. We had the minestrone. carpaccio, game platter, fresh hake. chicken caesar and creme brulee for a very reasonable price. Would like to return again sometime.

We came here for lunch starving and we really enjoyed our lunch . It is a pretty historic place and has been here for over 50 years. Lovely view of the waterfront.

We decided to stop at Hildebrand's for lunch since it was located in a perfect spot on the wharf. So wish we would have researched this and looked for good food. Hildebrand's has mediocre food at best and the service is much to be desired....More
