It was turkey birthday dinner from two couples . when the bill came they each gave them a credit card to split the one bill. The owner came out to say he could not split it because it would cost him to much money to process...which I do not understand when you get charged for 1/2 or the total bill.They... More

First let me say this was the 5th time my wife and I have been here. Each time it seems the service and attitude of the owner and her staff keeps getting worse. we have always commented about the snotty attitude of the owner. but this time was the last straw for us. Earlier in the year I purchased a... More

My family and I dined at the restaurant Sunday. The menu choices very limited and what there was very overpriced. Seems like they are in business to go out off business.

The history of the Holloway House greets you as you enter. Waitresses are wearing uniforms that speak of a different era. The decor is charming and puts one in a time when life was simpler. The food is exceptional, and they Sally Lunn bread and orange rolls are a treat in themselves. I always have the chicken livers and they... More

My husband and I eat at restaurants frequently, and we often bemoan the fact that most places we go seem to be shiny versions of exactly the same thing. The service at many of these restaurants is lackluster and the food is simply warmed-up Cisco products. The Holloway House is the opposite. While there, we enjoyed amazing service from our... More

We went to the thanksgiving dinner tonight and the food was excellent! The atmosphere was nice although tightly packed. The only downside was our waitress. She was the most miserable person and I have never felt so uncomfortable with a server. VERY disappointed by her service. Wont EVER go back unless I call ahead and make sure we dont get... More

Ok, I'm giving a rating of "Excellent" and really it should be "very good". Just this once. Because even though some of the criticisms I see below are true (the building and silverware are a bit worn, dated outfits for the waitresses, a few cracks here and there) I found our recent meal there to be charming. It is a... More

We celebration an early Thanksgiving at the Halloway house with 9 family members. It was a wonderful evening. They were very good about accommodating my grandson who is in a wheelchair. We had our own room, which made the evening even more special!! The food was delicious, and the two waitresses were very attentive. We are planning on doing this... More

The Holloway House since 1808, featuring traditional American fare at affordable prices. The main dining rooms feature Roast Turkey, Steaks, and Seafood in a historic setting. Also a Sunday Buffet Brunch is a great way to enjoy your family and friends after church . Friday night Fish Fry followed by a slice of one of our in house baked pies or creme brulee is a great way to start your weekend or trip to one of the lakes. A perfect place for your next party, private seating for groups up to 60. Saturday night prime rib and seafood buffet is very popular.
