“We had excellent service, a good meal for a very reasonable price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2011

We were there two years in a row. We had a group of about 25 each time. Management went out of their way to provide great service, a varied menu, and great prices. Overall service was great.

“A favorite local restaurant, but NOT MINE!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2011

Most of the locals in Murray love Holmes. It's been around a long time, and has moved location several times. They are currently in the nicest location they've ever had. The service is good, atmosphere is decent, but the prices are a bit high considering the food is nothing extraordinary. The salad bar (the time we went) was very sad. I am also very disappointed to see they added a bar/alcohol to their restaurant. If they would focus more on the food, and quality of the food, temperature of the food, etc.... they wouldn't need alcohol sales. They (I think) like to think of themselves as a family restaurant, but the sign clearly says "Holmes Restaurant and LOUNGE".....that is not family-friendly in my opinion. But if you go here....order their catfish...it is good. If you order anything else....you will be disappointed.
