Looking for a place to get a breakfast menu at dinner time, we tried the Hollywood Diner. Our favorite, Kirby & Holloway's, burned down. The home fries were very good, the ham slice was good, and the scrambled eggs were good, but not soft scrambled as I had specifically asked for. The Belgian waffle must have been made with very...

My wife and I stopped in at this dinner later one night when everything else was closed, not expecting much. However, the service was quite pleasant and the food was great! Huge portions... Great taste. To me, this diner seems to be what the big chain "Silver Diner" seems to be modeled after, which tells you that is good!

I have eaten breakfast at the Hollywood Diner several times. The food is okay but nothing to shout about. The service is hit or miss. The last time i was there the serve was okay but the previous time the waitress decided to go sit in another room and talk to someone. Then it was no service. The food is... More

I love diners. They are almost always hospitable, friendly and serve up good food at reasonable prices. This one meets all that criteria and more. The classic chrome exterior and the retro hollywood interior always gets me in the mood for a good dining experience. Big menu covers all the basics and everything is available 24 hours a day. Service... More

Very shiny outside! Breakfast was good (poached eggs done right). Varied menu, good prices, order delivered quickly, large portions. A nice lady named Trudy took good care of us. Not great, not terrible - but just right...pretty much the definition of a diner.

Many diners are good values and provide efficient service. Our recent experience at this Route 13 diner did not meet either standard. The biggest problem was the slow and inattentive service on a late Saturday morning when there was not a crowd. Side dishes listed on the menu as included (cole slaw, pickle) were not brought with the meal and... More

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
