“The best food and atmosphere in town”
Reviewed September 24, 2011

We have been faithful Hollywood's customers for years. There's nothing here to eat that's bad. The atmosphere is always that of a lively little local place.

“Hokie Heaven”
Reviewed September 19, 2011

What a great restaurant. We enjoyed every mouthful. The service was great. We especially enjoyed talking with Mr. Henderson. We will make this a permanent stop on our way to watch the Hokies play.

“Best Little Restaurant in Roanoke”
Reviewed September 17, 2011

This little restaurant is located next to Hollins University on Williamson Rd. You will find a diverse menu and attentive staff. The food is well prepared and is complemented by unique sauces and sides. This all adds up to a great tasting and most enjoyable meal. I have eaten here several times over the past three years and have never been disappointed.

“Great family friendly menu and terrific service”
Reviewed September 16, 2011

With all the southern charm I would expect of Roanoke, VA, plus great food and a comfortable atmosphere, Hollywood's deserves at least 5 stars. My spouse and 2 of my children (aged 11 and 5) stayed in Roanoke/Hollins for a VA Tech home football game and were pleasantly surprised by this gem just down the road from our hotel.

Definitely save room for dessert - we had the yummy carrot cake, the rich triple fudge brownie, and the dynamite mint brownie. These great desserts followed a delicious white chicken chili with just the right amount of kick, a fabulous cheesy chicken mushroom soup, great coconut chicken on the kid's menu, and a good reuben. My spouse tried the local lager with his meal, and enjoyed a smoky flavored beer unlike any he'd tried before. I suppose he liked it because he went back twice more for refills.

The service was exceptional, we felt welcome and were promptly seated and served. Jeremy was attentive without being pushy, and though the parking lot was filled to capacity, we did not feel rushed to finish. I believe it was the owner who stopped by to discuss his #1 rating on TripAdvisor (which I had mentioned), and warmly patted me on the shoulder while discussing his ratings.

Thank you, TripAdvisor, for pointing us to Roanoke's best kept secret. It's always a pleasure to discover a hidden gem. If not for Hollywood's, we would have ended up at a large chain restaurant, which we try to avoid in favor of local establishments. That policy served us well with Hollywood's.
