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.

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.

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...

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!

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.

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.

We love the Holly Hotel for special occasions. The food is unique, excellent, and the presentation is always lovely. We were able to sit outside and eat which was really nice (Battle Alley is blocked off for outdoor dining). The service is always impeccable. A fabulous gem in Holly!

Holly Hotel always impresses, from the moment you walk in the door. Despite having to pivot to a new look for Brunch due to the pandemic, everything was amazing. I actually like the idea of a menu, four course (?), and selecting your “entrees” . My wife and I left happy, FULL and looking forward to our next meal at the Holly Hotel.

Excellent food and service. I ordered the tournadoes of beef and it was so tender. Morels, green beans and yukon mashed potatoes were the perfect accompaniment. The cheesecake for dessert was delicious. Love the Holly Hotel!

The decorations for Halloween were great. The food was delicious. The service was slow, and there seemed to be only one wait staff for the dining area. Also, there were only 3 tables, and they could have been spaced out much more.

Then negatives: 1. Unfortunately we did not get the most experienced waitress this time, which was the first time there for our guests. It was limited service and lacked charm. Robert and Erica are fun and part of the experience, but both were off this evening. Our waitress did know most of her wines and was willing to share her preferences freely, but was still not that attentive or interactive. 2. The mushroom appetizers were warm, not hot. The positives: `1. It's still the Holly Hotel. Food is almost always reliably good (even the warm stuffed mushrooms). ;-) 2. The atmosphere is quaint, although Covid is stressing the process.
