Hollins House at the golf course has adapted well to covid restrictions with outside tables placed far apart and a very few indoor tables also available. Service is excellent, and the food is very good. Octopus was spicier than expected and, while the one inch...diameter pieces were cooked perfectly, the smallest ends were cooked the same amount of time and were burnt. Scallops were perfect, and the brussels sprout appetizer was very well done. Wine list is a little bit limited during the lower volume virus period, but still pretty good. We'll be back!More

We went to celebrate Halloween by having dinner at Hollins House. We enjoyed cocktails and wine. For our appetizer, we shared their crab cake. For dinner, my husband very much enjoyed his octopus. I had gonocchi. We had very tasty maple pumpkin ice cream for...dessert. Overall dinner was good Service was OK.More

We had one of the best dinners of 2020 at Hollins House The chef and staff are awesome. Service is too. We made our reservations on Open Table. We enjoyed their chaucceteri plate which was very good. We had cocktails and wine. Their Paloma Cocktail...was very good. For our mains, the dinners were amazing My husband loved his scallops and raved about them. I loved my gnocchi which came with lots of nutritious vegetables. We loved the views of the golf course, so of course ordered dessert. It was good, but not the best part of our meal. I had the stone fruit tart; my husband the banana cake but thought it was not as banana tasting as he wanted. We still enjoyed our leisurely desert and time at Hollins House. Dinner is fine dining - so its nice for a special event or when you want to just have a very nice out. Its welll worth making a reservation for.More

A classic white table cloth establishment with a full menu. Our visit had some home runs and a couple of disappointments. The Fire Kissed Wagyu missed completely (photo #1). The chef made up for that miss with an off menu seared Ahi (photo #2) that...was incredible . The Dry Aged Duck Breast (photo #3) rounded out the meal.More

Perfect evening sitting outside with friends. Food was outstanding and the service was great. We will be returning, but we will opt to dine in the bar because we nearly fell off of our chairs when the bill arrived. Hang on to your wallet...it was...very pricey. Nice for a special occasion.More

This restaurant offers the typical country club fare and does a excellent job; the service is very attentive. Of particular note is the wine list - not just the typical over priced wine list - lots of unique and value oriented wines here.

We had a lovely experience at the Hollins House Restaurant until our entrees were served cold to us. Up until that point the experience was near 5 star. The ambiance was stellar, we were seated at a table in the center adjacent to the wall...which gave us a panorama view of the entire dinning room. Our server Tamara was professional and endearing. The appetizers were prompt and delicious. I ordered the octopus which was absolutely delicious. Then everything went downhill. We must have waited over 30 minutes for our entrees. I ordered the New York strip which was near cold when it was finally delivered. We asked to re-heat the food which they promptly did, however the mood was killed at that point. Our server was gracious in comping our corkage fee and the one glass of cabernet which we ordered which somewhat recovered the mood for the evening. In the end this place earns a 3 star restaurant review. Such a shame !More

We were 4 people all ordered different entrees plus soup, salad, the Salmon Tartine appetizer and the cherry tart dessert. Everything was delicious. We ended up sitting in the Tap Room because the table in the main dining room was so uncomfortable. They are folding...tables used for events and the legs block you from being able to sit with your feet under the table - ridiculous - but we moved to a comfortable table in the Tap Room and had a wonderful eveningMore

We attended our friends wedding here. It was ideal. The staff were well managed, attentive and a compliment to the event. never seen but always available is a good description for the event staff. The atmosphere and facilities are pristine for a wedding and reception....it helped elevate the special occasion. It is on a hill but there is adequate ADA parking for access to the facility.More

I would recommend reservations now if you are planning a Thanksgiving meal. I would expect a great experience if the weather is clear.
