Great venue

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

On our way through Mississppi we called at the Hollywood café in Tunica, I wanted to visit a place mentioned in the song 'walking in Memphis' and although we arrived outside the lunch opening hours the lady kindly invited us in and offered to remain open and serve us even though the chef had gone home and she was on...

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

We visited for lunch today and enjoyed great hamburgers and tried the famous fried pickles. The waitstaff was very friendly and the food was served quickly. The atmosphere was very unique and interesting. Would definitely recommend.

This was our first visit to the Hollywood Café. If only the walls could talk, I'm sure they would have some wonderful stories to tell. It was the neatest historic place I have been to in awhile.
