We did not stay at Holland House but four of us had lunch there. The open-air seating is wonderful with a fantastic view of the beach just across the walkway. The service was excellent and so was the food on Wednesday! The men both ordered the Bacon Cheeseburger made with Kobe, Chuck, Short Rib, Brisket, and Cheddar and Monterrey Jack cheeses. They proclaimed it the "best ever" and "none better." I had the Club Sandwich with Gouda, Ham, Bacon, Egg Salad with Truffle. It was Excellent!!! My friend ordered the Tuna Sashimi Sandwich, which was wonderful! in fact, we enjoyed everything so much that we returned on Sunday and ordered the EXACT SAME FOOD! The Cheeseburgers were extremely disappointing: not as thick, not as good, and the buns were hard. They were under cooked and had to be sent back to the kitchen, only to return flattened. The Club sandwich had more ham and less egg salad and was not as good. The Tuna Sashimi was not the same grade tuna.
The only bright spot was the Caesar Salad which three of us shared. It was very good. Oh wait! the Pina Coladas were outstanding!
Could the Chef been on Holiday??? It was definitely not the same on Sunday as it was on Wednesday!
