Picked up some equipment in the area and looked for a restaurant nearby. We were fortunate to choose Hollywood Cafe. Tried their combo appetizer of fried green tomatoes and onion rings. Great. Then my wife ordered the large fried catfish strips and I tried the...blackened grilled catfish strips. I had turnip greens and slaw and she had baked beans and fried squash. All were outstanding. The baked beans were good but not great, as all other foods were fantastic. Overall real good meal and service (Tobias?!) was very good as well. Recommend to anyone whose taste is similar as this was a surprisingly wonderful experience.More

We stopped for an early dinner while driving through, based on Trip Advisor recommendations. We started with fried pickles (yum!) and both loved the fried shrimp dinner. Our waitress/bartender Alexis was very friendly and helpful. This is a hidden gem!

We were in Tunica for an event and had no idea this historic place was just around the corner from our hotel. We knew that it was the first stop other friends made when they came two days earlier. What we found was a piece...of Delta History :) :) This is the place where Marc Cohn joined "Miss Muriel on Piano down at the Hollywood" and was inspired to write Walking in Memphis - one of my favorite songs. They kept the ambiance of the old cafe alive and added a lot of memorabilia. The restaurant is formatted to seat groups of 8 or singles at a counter. There were a lot of groups who came to relish the place together - we felt a little guilty taking a table for just the two of us - we'll bring a group next time. They specialize in local Delta cuisine. The staff was cheerful and helpful, but there is a wait to get a seat, and it appeared the staff was spread a little thin... probably temporary due to these times of hard to find help.More

Wow, when we first walked in the door and was greeted by our waitress Toya she offered great selections on the menu! Of course we had the fried green tomatoes! The catfish was cooked to perfection. I had a grilled chicken sandwich and turnip greens....The greens were delish! Nice spot to go to when you don't want any more casino food or prices!More

A little expensive for the amount of food we received!! Service was good, but the meal was too expensive! It cost us over $50.00 for catfish and shrimp!! The shrimp was better than the catfish!!

Not fancy, but it was great. We planned on eating at different places but ate there all three nights. The service and food were wonderful. I recommend the Grilled Shrimp and the Whole Rib Platter. The Hamburgers and appetizers were great. Our average price for...two, including tip, was 45 dollars at dinner.More

Must visit for those exploring the casinos of Tunica. A great taste of the Delta experience - visually and the soulful taste of the cuisine. Anything fried is wonderful here.

When we make a six-hour drive to visit Tunica, the motivation is gambling. However in the future we might be willing to make the drive just to eat at Hollywood Cafe.I had 1/2 rack of ribs (which were more than I could eat). My friend...had the fried shrimp that were huge and perfectly prepared. Wives had veggie plates. Everything was outstanding!More

Our impression of the food was actually 3 stars - pretty average and mediocre in our humble opinion. Having said that - we were glad we went. The setting, and the history, and the friendly service made it worth going to. Interesting building with great...Delta Blues history. Enjoyed it and glad we went. Onion rings were the highlight - as well as the deep fried jalapeños in a corn meal batter. May give it another try after the whole Covid thing is over and they are back in "Full" swing.More

A unique restaurant with delicious food! The fried pickles, onion rings and green tomatoes were a perfect starter. We had cheeseburgers for our meal. They were delicious. The peach cobbler with ice cream was a perfect ending. The tea was sweet and the service was...great.More

This little cafe has a lot of history. Some of which is displayed inside to tell the story. I had the steak sandwich with provolone and grilled onions, along with the potato skins. The meal was very good, and filling as well.
