I had taken my mother and a couple of friends shopping and we needed a place for dinner. I remembered a lunch time visit years ago and decided to see if the Hollywood was still in operation. It is, and everything we ordered tasted home made, including the Italian bread and the french fries. My friend has several health problems... More

The Hollywood is a great spot for lunch or dinner. My friends and I always stop here when we are in town. They offer a variety of food on their menu: burgers, pizza, pasta, salad. salads… Something for everyone.

My brother had the lasagna and was quite satisfied with the quantity and quality of that. I had the bacon Cheeseburger and fries. Again nicely prepared and very good flavor. Service and... More

The Hollywood is locally owned and their sauces are made by the owners. The menu is large and varied. The Lasanga is wonderful. Served with warm bread and butter. Drinks are available from the bar. The decor includes as its centerpiece, a life sized statue of Marilyn Monroe in her famous pose. Other items include a floor model juke box... More

The ambience is the selling point here. It's just a cool place! Old fashioned signs and pictures, statue of Marilyn Monroe with the skirt blowing - good menu - prices are reasonable - food is good. I eat here often!! I don't think their red sauce is the best by any means - that is my only complaint. So, I... More

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 food was inedible. I ordered chicken Parmesan.I got frozen chicken patties with a square piece of processed cheese and pasta that was actually crunchy. It was the worst. Everyone at the table ordered something different and no one had anything good to say. Used to go here years ago but it has gone downhill..
