No longer an Inn, Michigan's Holly Hotel is a nationally-known American restaurant, listed on the United States Register of Historic Places.. The essence of award-winning regional and classical cuisine, late Queen Anne Victorian architecture, and a loyal following since 1891.
Wow! What a fabulous Mother's Day treat. We had reservations for 1:30 pm for Brunch, we arrived about 12:50 and were promptly seated. Menu was excellent. Just the right portions of food presented by a very efficient and pleasant waitress. Since it was a four course meal we were somewhat hesitant because we are usually small eaters. All four courses were beyond our expectations. As an entre my wife had lobster and eggs benedict and I had a petit filet over fresh hash browns. Both were spectacular. It made a great day even better. We enjoyed it so much that we joined their Diners Club program. We will definitely will visit once a month. Only flaw was a typo in menu, I can live with that...barely.
Thank you so much for making everything perfect! Each and every time that I come to the Holly Hotel, it is evident that they have gone out of their way to make sure that everything is impeccably managed, from the cleanliness of the building and the restrooms, to the most accommodating staff, and of course the food and the drinks are top notch, delicious, and expertly prepared. And even as I'm walking out of their doors I'm already planning to come back. I am extremely picky and they are always exceeding my expectations.
Upon entering the building my first thought was that I just stepped back in time. I felt classy, per se! Our host was so upbeat and helpful with the menu and how things worked as this was our first time. Our server, Erika, was professional, friendly and above all else KIND! She was very knowledgeable about the menu and even offered her opinions and her favorites! The food was PHENOMENAL! Holy Shrimp Stuffed Mashrooms, I'm in love! BEST APPITIZER EVER! The onion soup did not disappoint, that pastry on top sealed it, literally. I have never had Walleye before so I chose to step out of my comfort zone and it was to die for. It was fresh flaky and so flavorful, it paired well with the vegetables and those potatoes are mouthwatering delicious. My wife chose a safer route and went with the Tournados of Beef. It melted in her mouth, it was cooked PERFECTLY! The seasonings were the perfect touch to an otherwise perfect cut of beef! And finally the dessert.... my wife chose the cake. This time she stepped out of her comfort zone, as she doesn't like many flavors mixed together, but she DEVOURED that cake. Altogether we had a very romantic and very elegant night. Thank you we will definitely be back!
Went for our anniversary and everything was wonderful!
Sara was fantastic

Fun night... good service, great food
The ambiance is nice and the themed dinners are a treat. Food is very good.
We always enjoy our dining experience at the Holly Hotel. From the excellent food to the service and ambience, we love coming here.
The corn chowder alone was worth dinner. Staff were friendly and engaging. Great night out.
Holly Hotel never disappoints. Food and service was fabulous...
Food, service and ambience extraordinary. Thank you for a perfect dining experience. The Greek inspired menu was perfection.
Expensive but worth the price! The staff is amazing, the food was perfect, and the ghosts added a little extra pizzazz
My husband and I have been coming here for years and we have never been disappointed. The food is incredible. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The restaurant is beautiful. The Holly Hotel is, without a doubt, our FAVORITE place to eat out.
Hoping the state opens up more so this lovely restaurant can get more business.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. Food was great. The only thing I took one point off was because of my daughter's steak. She ordered it medium, it was served at medium rare. Other than that no complaints. Our server was fantastic. We highly recommend the holly hotel.
We couldn't go, because state shut down for restaurants during this time frame. Thanks.
We had a wonderful experience and will come again
We were overwhelmed with the food, service and atmosphere! We want to have our Christmas party here!!
We had a wonderful dinner with family. Though service started out slow, it picked up and it was a good experience.
I come every year in October for my birthday dinner. I love everything about this place
Words cant really describe the vibe
I didn't know what Kentucky Burgoo was. When I asked our waiter, he didn't either. I ordered it not knowing how spicy it was. A stomach condition I have would not allow me to eat it. We greatly enjoy eating at the hotel and the service was, as usual, great. Thank you...
Excellent service and food. Great as always.
Excellent loved each dish
The whole experience was amazing. The building is beautiful, the atmosphere was beautiful. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu and actually helped me make my decision. Me and my fiancée actually had our wedding postponed because of COVID-19 and came here instead for dinner as a treat. It was exactly what we needed and it made for a really happy and occasion on what would have been a gloomy day. Thank you!
Everything about this dining experience was fabulous! Could not have asked for a better anniversary dinner. Highly recommend!
Sarah was a fantastic server who made our first ever visit so special! Can’t wait to come back!
Everything was perfect and our server was amazing!
Amazing dinner with awesome service!!!
Great service Food came out timely and great food
Food was excellent, as always. Our server, Kirsten, was very attentive and personable! Our second time eating out since January and we couldn't have picked a better restaurant.
It was all excellent
Twas my granddaughter’s first visit and she loved every aspect of our brunch. The food, hotel, and waitress was amazing. Thanks Holly Hotel-we’ll see you soon!❤️
Great service from Brendan who came all the way from Anchorage to wait on us! We felt he was attentive without being invasive. The entire staff was super cautious re Covid 19 restrictions. They even washed their hands before handling my phone to take a picture for us.They wore masks and kept us socially distanced. It was wonderful to be back in a restaurant again. They also had outdoor seating where the street was closed down and tables were added.
Great food, felt safe in current environment. Staff very attentive. Great meal.
I don't remember why we stopped going to the Holly Hotel. Maybe we figured that, as we got older, the trip from Berkley was a bit too much. Well that was wrong and we're glad we now see the error of our ways. There are a lot of good restaurants around here, but none quite meets the standards of Holly. Thank you for being who you are and doing what you do. We expect to see a lot of you.
It was our first time here and it was a great experience! Loved everything from the atmosphere to the delicious food! Will definitely be coming back!
First restaurant we have been in since the quarantine. Ambiance was great. Our waiter (Brian) was very pleasant and helped to make Father's Day a great experience.
Glad to see them re-open! The good was wonderful as always. The new way that brunch is being served is excellent. Will definitely go again.
We always love the adventure of eating at the Holly Hotel! Fun and oh so good!
I love the Holly Hotel. It's not cheap, so I don't go as often as I'd like. But every time I go I love it!
The Holly Hotel never fails to be a pleasant dining experience. Our server, Erica, was excellent. The food was great. We'll be back.
Great service and food. We look forward to coming back again soon!
