Our Home Owners Association planned a weekend trip to Lexington, KY to take in several sites. The day we arrived, we had a pre-ordered lunch at Holly Hill. We were given three choices for our entrees (chicken dish, pork, or fried trout). Our salad was the same for everyone (pears with spinach, blue cheese and walnuts) and dessert was a Kentucky Bread Pudding. All the food was very tasty and the service was very attentive. The building is an old house and worth going to next time you're in the Lexington, KY area.

Make this a stop for sure! Great food and service in a lovely old home. This is a little off the beaten path, but the food was so worth it! Not too far from Lexington and there are some other restaurants in their local chain that will be worth a visit!! Tried lunch at Wallace Station!! A beautiful drive to this lovely restaurant in Midway! Will make this a repeat!!!

I wish I could afford to eat here every day. It's an upscale place with the most unique atmosphere and food. This is our special occasion spot. It is hidden off the normal Midway beat and a little tough to find but well worth it. I have always had to have reservations.

I've been on assignment for a project in the Lexington area since April. I visited Holly Hilly Inn a few weeks ago and it was wonderful (reviewed here). My wife came to spend the weekend and I thought it would be great to take her to Holly Hill Inn. We were early for our reservation but not a problem. We were warmly greeted by Molly, who welcomed me back, having remembered me from my previous visit. Don't know what your experience is, but I have found that it is rare to be remembered from visit to visit at the best of visits. The service and meal was terrific. My bride wavered as to whether to have a salad or the gazpacho and settled on salad. when the salad arrived, Molly brought a cup of gazpacho for her to try. That was a very nice touch. I hope to return before the end of my project.

The Holly Hill Inn is solely a restaurant. It is very fine dining in an out of the way place near Lexington. I had the stuffed artichoke salad, which is wonderful, and the game hen. The flavor of everything went together like a symphony. Plum cake for dessert rounded out a great meal. After a day at the Kentucky Horse Park and touring three horse farms, this was a nice way to unwind.
