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 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 had some really delicious pizza and antipasto salad here over the weekend. The service was friendly and very attentive. Looking forward to our next visit.

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!

I always enjoyed Hollywood Restaurant. Have been many times. Tonight's experience was...not so much. Instead of ordering pasta, I chose the Chicken Caesar Salad. It was a large plate with lots of lettuce, some jumbo toasted croutons, a ramekin of caesar dressing (average tasting at best) and the world's smallest portion of chicken. I mean, THE WORLDS SMALLEST PORTION OF... More

even with the hubbub of college graduation nearby we were well treated, and the waitress seemed pleased to "split" the "international" club which is on the order of a monte cristo with cheese and ham... generous antipasto, fine delivery of margherita pasta, with penne. although at $10.95, this seemed to have a high profit margin

Went here on a Monday night and service was so slow. The hostesses worked as bartenders and waitresses and they seemed really short staffed. The "saucy sand which" is exactly how it sounds...a perfectly good sandwich drenched in sauce. Fries were limp and chewy. Burger, grilled cheese and chicken tenders were good.

My friend and I had dinner here for a girls weekend with our kids. The portions were generous, and food was great, and the staff was wonderful. Will definitely visit again!
