Description: In 1974 Mike Buda, Holly's founder, opened his doors after many years in the hospitality industry at other area restaurants. It wasn't long before word spread that the food was delicious and reasonably priced, the service was excellent, and Holly's became a favorite choice for casual family dining. Keeping the business in the family, Mike Buda's daughters, Jennie and Michele, spent time helping their dad at work during their youth. Following their graduation from Purdue University's Hospitality and Tourism school, Mike turned the daily operations of the restaurant over to his energetic and capable daughters. The restaurant serves traditional American cuisine, with select Mexican specialties and Barbeque favorites to really spice things up! You'll enjoy sandwiches piled high with only the best-quality ingredients, delicious homemade soups and salads, and one of the best French Dip sandwiches anywhere. For dinner, try our strip steak - or feast on a variety of appetizers and late night munchies at our bar. Enjoy your team in action on one of our 15 televisions, complimented by your favorite ice-cold beer, wine, or a cocktail. The Buda family takes great pride in being a locally owned, hometown-dining establishment. And, in today's market of chains and franchises, it's a pleasure to experience the friendly welcome you'll receive at Holly's Restaurant and Pub. So, whether you're new to the area, just passing through, or a born and bred "MCer" - get together at Holly's for hometown family fun!

Whether you are a local or a traveler, Holly's is the place to eat at. The atmosphere and staff makes your visit very enjoyable. The prices might be a little higher then other local places, but the quality of food is higher then those other local places. If you eat at Holly's you won't regret it, and I will guarantee that you will become a repeat customer.

The place is nice and the staff were friendly. They give you popcorn while you wait (they always seem under staffed) and we always have a wait. The food isn't to expensive and tastes pretty good, but nothing special. It is a relaxing atmosphere and an alright place to eat if you are not in a hurry or looking for great food. I have ate there a few time, I will go back, maybe have the burger...

If you want a great relaxing restaurant with good service, great menu variety and good service try Holly's Restaurant.
I go there several times weekly and never disappointed! Don't fill up on the popcorn if you dare!
