A real piece of history. Ive wanted to go to this cafe for a long time and recently got the opportunity. We were there at 11am - opening time so sort of had a late breakfast / early lunch. The food was really good and...plenty to choose from, catfish was the best.More

We all ate the pulled pork dinner. Pork and sauce was good. My slaw and beans were average. Also had peach cobbler which was also good. Home cooking that can be found in lots of places in the south. But where they really excel is...the staff. Our waitress was very attentive kind and cute. Would eat there againMore

They’re famous for their fried pickles - and for good reason! They were delicious. The setting was also really great and the service was incredible. We can’t recommend any of the other food we ordered, other than the hush puppies, but the pickles are so...good that it really doesn’t matter. Worth the stop.More

I have been in Tunica on nearby business a few times now. Didn’t want to eat at the casino restaurants, so I gave Hollywood Cafe a try. After 4-5 visits, I haven’t had a bad experience yet. Food and service have both been outstanding. Definitely...my go to place when I’m in the area.More

We are usually in Tunica in early December and always make a point to visit this historic restaurant that features Southern Fried Catfish. A couple we didn't know was gracious to invite us to join them at their table so we got a seat without...too much wait. It was good as always.More

My wife and I had lunch and it was great. Fried pickles and fried green tomatoes were the best I've ever had. The catfish po boy and steak sandwich were awesome. They served the food quickly and everyone working there was very friendly. I highly...recommend them for both the food and the hospitality.More

We've been going to Tunica to gamble for years. We knew the Hollywood Cafe was there, we knew where it was, yet stupidly we never went. I had a steak sandwich and my husband had a bbq sandwich and both were ok. BUT we had...the small appetizer plate and got onion rings, fried green tomatoes and fried pickles. IT WAS AWESOME! The appetizers were hot and out quick. My husband absolutely LOVED the fried green tomatoes. There were two women working out front and both were SUPER friendly. We will WITHOUT A DOUBT go back the next time we are in Tunica!More

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!!
