The hamburger with the egg is 5 star restaurant good. A group of us were there for lunch and all of us were very happy with our choices. Salads were excellent and the fries were perfect. And that hamburger.....

Went here before and after the addition was put on. Noisy when crowded, food generally OK. The major issue I have is that it lacks focus. It is not lie priced or high end, not quaint or sports bar not Asian or American food. I would pay more for a culinary experience or special vibe. Needs a few tweaks, but... More

If you are looking for a place that has atmosphere and really delicious food that is on the healthier side, then you need to visit The Hollow. I had a baby shower there and needed to have vegan food served and they were able to accommodate us with really wonderful choices, and everyone LOVED the food. Even if you are... More

This is a family owned and run business. The food is always fresh and delicious. Recently remodeled so there is plenty of room.

Went for dinner in a group of eight (4 couples) and were seated in the space recently added onto the original restaurant/bar. The space is beautifully done, it was one of those early fall evenings so the two-sided fireplace and outdoor fire torches were a welcome accompaniment to the smartly done addition. Ambiance gets five stars! The only reason for... More

Outstanding! My husband and I had the veggie burger and the ahi tuna sandwich. I'm normally a meat eater but whatever they do to their veggie burger makes it phenomenal and is well worth a try. The tuna was seared just right and also delicious. They used to have a wonton soup on the menu which I was surprised to... More

The Hollow always has great food - a wonderful selection, and for many dietary requests. Their bar area has a wonderful old Buffalo feel and they have a beautiful mural on the outside of their building. The patio area is great for enjoying wine during their happy hour in the afternoon. The staff is fantastic and attentive, and the bartenders... More

We've been coming to this restaurant for years. The food is always very good and until the expansion, the atmosphere was what you would expect in a small village bistro; cozy, small number of tables, intimate. With the expansion the food is still good but the ambience has been obliterated. The noise level in the new area is so loud... More
