We really enjoyed this restaurant our first visit, and the second visit did not disappoint. First and foremost, the food was absolutely delicious, and served in a very pleasing way. The staff all seemed very pleased to be there, and eager to please us as well. Service was great as well. A couple minor items, meant merely as constructive criticism.... More

We visited Holly Hill Inn for dinner on a Saturday, on the recommendation of a friend who said that this is the best place in the Lexington area. I would venture to guess that it is the best in Kentucky. The restaurant offers a prix fixe menu of four courses (first, second, entree, dessert). You can add an optional hors... More

Went for Father's Day brunch every single aspect was top class. Emerald Isle Caesar salad with kale to die for. Amuse Buche pimento cheese second to none. Frittata outstanding. Prime rib as good if not better than anywhere

After a day at Keeneland, Holly Hill was the perfect dinner find. We lucked into this place, but the ambiance and food were perfect. Everyone in our party of 8 walked away wanting to come back - which we will in the fall. Highly recommend to anyone in the area,

I recently had my first visit to the Inn on Mother's Day, and couldn't have been more impressed. The decor and service were spectacular, and the menu had choices for everyone. I chose the prime rib as my main course, which was perfectly seasoned and cooked. The salad tasted like it was fresh from the garden, and the pie was... More

We have shared many lovely dinners at this unique restaurant over the years. A relaxing atmosphere for couples.We decided to stop for a saturday lunch With our teenage daughter. For the first time the service was not good at all. We felt ignored and not welcome. Also, upon arriving we find a totally different menu than the internet had posted.... More

Chef Ouita and staff at Holly Hill go above & beyond to feed this picky vegetarian (I don't like mushrooms, olives, or eggs). I love that she uses locally grown/made ingredients whenever possible. Her creations are imaginative and delicious!
