What a great place! Anytime we frequent the Delta for a road trip, we always time our trip around a meal so that we can stop at The Hollywood Cafe! The fried dill pickles are divine and I think they have actually been featured on the Food Network. Burgers are great as well. I have not gone wrong with anything... More

It has the old look and feel of a blues cafe' so much that I was ready for Muriel Jenkins or Son House to come out and perform. The catfish dinner was great. My wife turned her nose up a bit when I told her this was the place where fried pickles was created; that is until she at one!... More

First visited this place in the late 90's and still this is a great beer joint. All on the menu is very good. You have to have the fried pickles; and I bet you cannot finish the "Belly Buster"

Frog legs were great and so was sausage. I had classic fried green tomatoes and this ishome of fried dill pickle. Both are classics for reason. People here are sooo nice. I discovered I love dilled okra, so crunchy and tangy. This place doesn't like much on outside, don't let that scare you. You will be rewarded and feel like... More

My wife and I were looking for a place to eat and I found this on the computer. My wife did not want to go in at first, because of the back of the restaurant. When we got to the front we saw the sign and decided to go in. We almost made a big mistake!!! We ordered the fried... More

My mom and I stopped in for lunch during our mini-vacation after reading about this place on "Trip Advisor". I no longer live in the south and miss eating catfish. I love the song Walkin in Memphis and it reminds me of home. So after looking for restaurants around Tunica I found the Hollywood Cafe. It looks the same as... More

This was the closest restaurant to our hotel and was chosen based upon that fact. This is a Blues cafe with blues background music. We were there on a Monday evening (7:00 pm) and there were no other customers. This caused some doubt about quality, but was definitely a wrong judgement! They are famous for the original fried pickles, so... More

So glad that we discovered this place during our trip to Memphis! The wait staff is super friendly, and the catfish and barbecue is some of the best we've ever had. We will definitely be back!
