The Hollywood is locally owned and their sauces are made by the owners. The menu is large and varied. The Lasanga is wonderful. Served with warm bread and butter. Drinks are available from the bar. The decor includes as its centerpiece, a life sized statue of Marilyn Monroe in her famous pose. Other items include a floor model juke box... More

The ambience is the selling point here. It's just a cool place! Old fashioned signs and pictures, statue of Marilyn Monroe with the skirt blowing - good menu - prices are reasonable - food is good. I eat here often!! I don't think their red sauce is the best by any means - that is my only complaint. So, I... More

We were on a day trip for our senior group. There were about 40 of us. We were wonderfully greeted and told where we would be seated. We found our salads on the table waiting for us, warm and wilted, sitting in a soup of Italian dressing. While one table was served their drinks, and another, bread, we sat waiting... More

The food was inedible. I ordered chicken Parmesan.I got frozen chicken patties with a square piece of processed cheese and pasta that was actually crunchy. It was the worst. Everyone at the table ordered something different and no one had anything good to say. Used to go here years ago but it has gone downhill..

The wait staff here are great and prices are reasonable, however, the food ain't what it used to be. As a local I have eaten here many times and each time we go it seems something else has gone down hill. French fries seemed like they were fried then baked to keep lukewarm. Fish was mushy and I could not... More

This restaurant is very unassuming from outside. In fact, it would be easy to drive by it completely. However, it is an old style neon diner crammed with very good Hollywood memorabilia. The menu is classic diner. The kitchen is speedy. The service staff is kind and attentive. The restaurant's interior is amazingly clean. The seats are comfy. I highly... More

We decided to head out for Dinner last night and chose a community restaurant Hollywood. It had been probably 15 years since we went there last and had heard it was someplace good to go. We were seated quickly as there was not to much of a crowd. The furnishings were well worn as was the decor, But it was... More

We used to live 3 blocks from Hollywood and were regulars, more recently we don't go as often, but regardless it's always good! They have old Hollywood decor which is nice, and the food is good-especially the saucy sandwiches!
