We decided to stop at this diner since we have driven by it for years, should have kept driving. The food was not terrible, not great but not inedible, however, the ladies restroom was filthy and if I had seen the condition and cleanliness prior to ordering, we would have ran, not walked but ran out of the place never...

Breakfast here two days was two eggs, toast, scrapple and grits for $4.99. Fast, well done, and you can't beat the price. They serve Kirby & Holloway scrapple, the best out there.

We ate at the Hollywood Diner in a Sunday evening. We were the only patrons. The place has a weird smell to it and the menus were dirty. I felt like leaving but we decided to give the place a chance. The waitress was nice enough and took our orders right away. We got ice cream shakes an they were... More

My husband and I love to go to this diner on the weekends. He gets the Hollywood omelet that has cheese and assorted breakfast meats, and I get the French toast or pancakes. The French toast was excellent, but the pancakes can be a hit or miss. I said something about the pancakes and the next week the owner came... More

Love this place! Great service and atmosphere. The menu offers what you'd expect if you are a diner fan, as I am. Can't beat it for the price.

Who makes great fresh fried chicken at 2:00 A.M. They do! Great food and service! We both enjoyed our food and so nice to see such a friendly group of waitresses in the middle of the night.

My friend and I saw this diner the night before; and it was packed. The next morning we wanted breakfast, so we thought we would go to this diner. We got there and the place was packed again. We thought, "it must be good." We were seated right away; but then had to wait a while for a waitress. Once... More

A number of years ago I ate at the Hollywood Diner, just to see what it was like. I was not impressed. Diner food. Diner ambience, but a bit bedraggled. Yesterday my wife and I had lunch there, just to get an update. The ambience is improved. The service was okay. The food was a bit of a disappointment. We... More

We had breakfast here 3 times during our stay in Dover. The food was good and arrived quickly! Portions were large. The waitresses were very friendly and were attentive. However, I do think the the interior could use a little sprucing up.
