This is no longer the same establishment celebrated in the Marc Cohn song Walking in Memphis: known for great catfish and where Tait Selden was credited for inventing the fried pickle; The steady line of traffic from Memphis nowadays is for casino action and this place is no longer an attraction. These days the food is only so so, and... More

The food was good, but not great. The place itself was awesome. The staff was incredible as well - top notch. It's weird to say this about a restaurant, but I do recommend it, just not for the food.

We purposely drove to the Hollywood Café, as part of our Mississippi Blues trip. We were there early afternoon, so the place was empty. The waitress was very nice, & she spoke at length about how she'd love to visit England one day. My wife went for the Chicken Burger, which liked. I opted for the special of the day,... More

The buffet had a good selection and the food was excellent. We got a senior rate on Wednesday that was half price. The staff was very efficient. Had the beer battered Cod and it was the best Cod I ever put in my mouth. The desert bar was top notch. We also ate at buffet america but thought Hollywood cafe... More

This neat little historic cafe away from the casinos in Tunica is a good place to head for a nice lunch. Do yourself a favor and step away from the casino buffets and check this out. The menu has a good variety although they were out of a few things the day we visited. I highly recommend the fried green... More

Ever heard the song "Walking in Memphis?" Well, this isn't Memphis but The Hollywood is mentioned in the song. Adds to the enjoyment of eating there. The day we were there, not many people in the cafe. The server who waited out table was the same one who tended the bar, cooked the food, cleaned up and took our money.... More
