Every time I go home to visit my family, I make sure I add this place to my "to-do's." Their food has always been excellent, with their homemade soups always a mix of delicious flavor. Reservations are a must as this is a popular spot, especially with how few tables there are on the inside - it fills quickly! I... More

My family came in from Cincinnati, my brother came from New Jersey, and my niece from New York. The rest of our family is spread across the Buffalo area. My grandfather ended up in the hospital, and our vacation turned stressful pretty quick. The adults in our crew wanted some good local beer and the kids had to be happy.... More

We love the Hollow Bistro & Brew! It's an intimate, cozy restaurant where you feel so welcomed. There's a nice selection of craft beers on tap and excellent wine choices.

We were traveling from Niagra to Boston. I googled “restaurants near me” and found a couple including The Hollow Bistro & Brew. We decided to give it a try. It is not right off the highway and we did have to backtrack some but it was worth the trip. It is very clean and nicely decorated in old world style.... More

We went to The Hollow Bistro and Brew on New Years Eve with five friends. Everyone knows a restaurant on New Years can be a crazy place. First of all, I loved the cozy atmosphere with the darker wood paneling and friendly staff. The owner was there making sure all was well for her customers. Next, the food was excellent,... More

Excellent food, nice wine list, service can vary, small seating area and bar all in one. Usually crowded, make a reservation.
