“greasy food, rude owners”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

title sums it up ~ won't go back! we've been several times and finally decided not to waste our time or money going there anymore! We've gone for breakfast. Tried to go for dinner however the restaurant was not open when the hours stated they were open. Can't comment on dinners..maybe the staff is awake by then so the service is better also

“Hot and Delicious at the Hollywood Cafe!”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

I had seen a Sacramento television station "review" of the Hollywood Cafe back in December, I think, and it looked like a fun place to go for lunch; finally made it there for the first time in June when I was in Lodi. Went back in early July. Both the times the food was excellent--served HOT on HOT plates. Service at times can be a bit slow, but the patience, friendliness and knowledge of the staff and the delicious food make up for it. (The slow service was because the oh-so-delicious meatballs could be fresh-made and they were worth the wait!) I look forward to my next trip to Lodi so I can maybe catch the dinner menu!

“Oldie but Goodie”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

We've been here a few times. The French Dip is quite yummy, lots of beef. Grilled chicken salad also good with freshly made sourdough croutons (I could eat of plateful of these alone). Check out the homemade desserts !

“Favorite 50" Place”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

Step back in time when sock hops were popular. The decor is definitely 50's but newly remodeled to be so. It's a fun atmosphere and the food is very good, especially breakfast. It's my husband's favorite breakfast place in town. They have a very good veggie omelet if your watching your calories and also a yummy breakfast burrito, if you're not. Staff is very friendly as well.

“Things are a little better”
Reviewed July 27, 2011

Hollywood Cafe was sold to a new couple. They appear to have cleaned up a little. Don't expect anything special. The Breakfast was OK. There is a 50's Diner on Hwy 108 just east of Oakdale that is my Favorite! NEVER a problem with their food and they serve Grizzly Beer! Meanwhile, I will probably go back to Hollywood Cafe and support the new owners. It is hard to make it in this town.
