I used to dine at the Holloway House routinely but, for reasons totally unassociated with the restaurant, I had not been back for several years. When my friend mentioned an advertisement and related coupon for the Seafood and Prime Rib Buffet on Saturday evenings, we decided to give it a try. What a pleasant surprise! The facility itself has not... More

This place can be cramped, it often is of a more mature aged clientele, food is good, their pickled sides are also good. Staff dresses to fit the part of historical times in the area. We have a buisness meeting here every year and have a wonderful time. The owners are very accommodating.

Our family visited Holloway House twice the previous week for dinner. The first visit was satisfactory ... decent food, good service, yet somewhat overpriced. The very next evening, our server informed us that we were undercharged for the previous evening meal by another server! He summoned Fred to our table to explain. To begin with, Fred has almost zero social... More

This certainly was a very unfortunate situation and our apologies go out to you and your family. I am totally baffled as to why the server on Wed. night mentioned the under charge on Tues. night. It was not his place to do so at all! It was something that management was going to handle and he was way out... More

As a special treat for Father's Day, my brothers and I took our parents to the HH with the rest of our family. What a mistake! We were there for close to three hours, we waited over 45 minutes between the salad and our entrees! Awful! My mother's potatoes were raw, my brother's rice was crunchy and my nephew's steak...

We have already apologized for the delay in receiving your meals and are very sorry you felt your experience was so "horrible". As I mentioned in your post on our facebook page, that is certainly not our goal. We did make a very large deduction on your bill since you were so unhappy. More

Were taken (there were 4 of us) to the Holloway house for dinner to celebrate a birthday and mother's day late. Hadn't been for dinner in a long time. Food was good. Several items tasted rather salty to us, but most everything was tasty. Host and hostess both engaged with all of us and were pleasant.Enjoyed the evening. A bit... More

My sister and I stopped in for lunch today. I was very surprised at the prices, especially for lunch. I opted for "soup and salad" for $10.95. I received a cup of watery clam chowder and a very small side salad. I was still hungry when lunch was over. VERY DISAPPOINTING. I will not be returning in the future.

It's definitely cool in that it was built in 1808 but it needs some tlc. History is nice but the owner/bartender Steve is unfriendly and arrogant, I would not give him my money again. His wife Dawn is a lovely woman.

This was a nightmare from the beginning. We had reservations for noon and were seated promptly, but waited over 20 minutes for menus, and even longer to order drinks. This with a two year old and a three year old trying their best to be good. When the food finally came one and one half hour later, it was awful.... More

From the minute you step into this House, you know you are in for a dining adventure. This is a a BIG house with many rooms and each room has its own charm. There is even a good-sized bar with dining tables for the sports fans.The servers wear garb harkening back to the early 1900's. Our server, Taylor, had a... More

Be wary, HH has no reservation system. Oh they take names, but beyond that they have no idea. We were 10min early and we're not seated for another 45min. Our server offered bread to all he tables around use TWICE and still never took our order. We left out of understandable frustration.

You are absolutely right , Chip, and we are so sorry about your experience. I t was a very difficult day due to the fact that 4 staff members never showed up for work. We could not get the tables turned as quickly as usual because the servers all had to take extra tables and we got backed up. I... More

The Holloway House since 1808, featuring traditional American fare at affordable prices. The main dining rooms feature Roast Turkey, Steaks, and Seafood in a historic setting. Also a Sunday Buffet Brunch is a great way to enjoy your family and friends after church The new Peter Holloway Tavern offers a quick and casual dinner and a great chance to try a Finger Lakes wine by the glass. Friday night Fish Fry followed by a slice of one of our in house baked pies or creme brulee is a great way to start your weekend or trip to one of the lakes.
