Just ok

I ate here last Friday with family. I ordered breakfast and the rest of my group ordered sandwiches. Our service was disappointing. We have been here twice in the past 3 weeks and same waitress is slow. The bus boy is good. Food is good. They just need to improve the service.

It was a diner. A pretty regular diner. I felt like it was pretty dark inside. The food was fine. The service was fine. As a lover of breakfast I only ever buy breakfast when at a diner.

The first thing I think of is warmth. This cafe just feels friendly. We first went there for a 50's themed wedding almost two years ago. It was so much fun! We don't live in Lodi, but we've always wanted to go back to Hollywood Cafe. When we finally made it back last night, they remembered us. Wow! The cafe... More

Stopped by this little cafe while traveling thru Lodi. The decor is old Hollywood with an auto theme. We greeted by the owner, who also served us. I cannot say enough about the service. It seemed like they knew just about everyone who stopped in to eat. Hugs and handshakes for the regulars. The owner's father circled the tables with... More

My husband and I enjoy the many, many options on the menu. Love the made-from-scratch recipes. Comfort food, Mexican, Portuguese linguica, fresh salads, cinnamon rolls, hamburgers... all great tasting!

It is obvious when you first walk in that if you are not regular, you are not welcome. Rude service, had to ask for water and tea refills. Saw waitress blow her nose, not wash her hands and deliver tood to tables. Servers were eating and drinking coffee while working. 45 minute wait for the food which was overpriced, greasy... More

The food there is brilliant, I didn't know it exsited until there was a crab feed that I had to volenteer at, but the food was delicious. The owner is really nice and knows how to... More

title sums it up ~ won't go back! we've been several times and finally decided not to waste our time or money going there anymore! We've gone for breakfast. Tried to go for dinner however the restaurant was not open when the hours stated they were open. Can't comment on dinners..maybe the staff is awake by then so the service... More

I had seen a Sacramento television station "review" of the Hollywood Cafe back in December, I think, and it looked like a fun place to go for lunch; finally made it there for the first time in June when I was in Lodi. Went back in early July. Both the times the food was excellent--served HOT on HOT plates. Service... More

We've been here a few times. The French Dip is quite yummy, lots of beef. Grilled chicken salad also good with freshly made sourdough croutons (I could eat of plateful of these alone). Check out the homemade desserts !
