a pleasant surprise

We ate at this restaurant while visiting from out of town. We were a large group of family and the staff immediately accommodated us with pushing tables together, although we came at off hours so it wasn't too difficult to accommodate us. The waitress was very helpful and got our entire order... read more

Comfortable atmosphere, a few "Silver Screen" icons and decorations, but not really enough to constitute a "theme". Food was acceptable, with generous portions, and servers were friendly. If you're in the area and need a reasonably priced meal I wouldn't discourage you from visiting, but certainly not a "destination"

Went to try Hollywood Restaurant on a busy Friday night. Waitstaff was pleasant and efficient. As stated, the restaurant was quite busy and it took approximately 40 minutes to get a wrap and a burger. The wrap was decent, albeit a bit messy. The burger, ugh! The "toasted bun" was burnt, bacon was beyond well-done, tomato was soggy and inedible.... More

This is a great place to go. The atmosphere is amazing. Not to dark but also not bright at all. If you are into old Hollywood themed stuff you'll love it. It is dated but it adds to the character. The food is amazing and you can pretty much get anything.

We went on a Saturday afternoon so it wasn't really packed at all. The lighting was dim and the place seemed a little dated. The waitress took sometime to get over to us but was very friendly and efficient. The food took come time to come out was decent size servings and tasted mediocre.

Not my favorite restaraunt in Cortland. But it is good. They have good Italian foods. They have decent American foods. The typical spaghetti, pizza, burgers, sandwiches, nothing to fancy.

Fun atmosphere!! Very pleasant and attentive staff! The food was average- appetizers seem to be the best items! The banquet room in the back was quite inconvenient!

Hollywood was ok, nothing great nothing terrible. I got the sundried chicken dish. The chicken was not as tender as I'd like, my husband felt the same about his chicken alfredo. The decor definitely hasn't been updated this century but it is interesting. If you want Italian in Cortland go to Fabio's.

Lots of old Italian favorites, and good selection of Sandwiches and Burgers. This is not fancy but is very nice. More like comfort food. Reasonably priced. Had lasagna tonight was very good comfort food served piping hot on a hot platter with warm bread. Many of the other folks there were having pizza, so maybe I will try that next... More
