Contemporary American
The Cedar Hollow Inn has been a local favorite for over 18 years. The building, which was built in the mid 1800's, lends an old-fashioned charm to an unpretentious atmosphere.

Chef Stephen Guiseppe of the Culinary Institute of America adds personal flair and imagination to a delectable menu of American Continental dishes. The daily Chef's Specials are creative and unpredictable, energetically inspired an hour or so before the menu is finalized.

Indulge yourself, family and friends to a casual fine dining experience in any of the three dining rooms, including an enclosed sun porch and a large bar area. Tucked away in the middle of everywhere, the Cedar Hollow offers an experience that keeps you coming back.

Really glad I found this on open table when looking for outdoor options to meet a friend near Malvern, food was great, good mix of bar food options and more upscale entrees. Our waiter was very sweet and attentive even though we were pretty much the only people sitting outside. Fire pit in the table was great ambience. Will definitely be back when I'm in the area.

They were incredibly accommodating to our party of 6, and then turned to 7 within a two-hour notice. We let them know that we had a 8-Month-Old and they set us up in the back room with a high chair where it was very quiet. Our server was fantastic and fun! She was relatable and you could tell she enjoyed working there. Food was wonderful too. The Mushroom Bisque and Calamari was a highlight.

Always enjoy our meals at CH - they have an outstanding staff, always very friendly and welcoming. Wish I could remember our servers names - but she was terrific. We had sandwiches and salads, enjoyed everything.

Cedar Hollow Inn is excellent for Sunday Brunch after church. The Eagle's Game was on in the bar as well, so able to keep up with the score while enjoying great food and service.

Our server, Kristen was wonderful! Noise inside was a bit loud in the dining room due to two large parties. Outside was perfect, complemented by live music, which was appropriate for dining. Marteen was cooking, romaine salad accompanied by a perfectly cooked flank steak was Michelin quality! Tuna was served a bit cool. Their wine list includes an impressive Pino Noir. We’ll be back!!

No one came over to us for a long time. Finally a very nice waiter asked if anyone had helped us because he saw us sitting so long. He was very nice. The woman that was chatting at every table, setting up lights at every table, etc ignored us and never attended to us. I finally asked for water and silverware and napkins. I told her that we were left unattended and she blamed it on the waiter. That was very rude of her to throw the nice waiter u set the bus. And fir not being busy it took a ridiculous amount of time to get our food.

Longtime diner...very disappointed: extravagant prices and lower quality.
Example: Shrimp Lejon, always a very good appetizer, was a major disappointment: 3 small shrimp with uncrisp bacon wraps were priced at $16...$5.33 a shrimp!!
Will think hard before returning.

They had a special event going on so noise level was louder than normal and service was a little slower than normal. But, they were up front about it when we got there and they were wonderfully nice to us. It had no impact on food quality. It was great. This has really turned into one of our most favorite local places.

Great variety on their menu. I had the short ribs which were very good. We split a Caesar salad and that was not very good - yellow lettuce, nothing special. We were seated on the porch which is nice but the bar crowd is very loud which carries over into that area. I would recommend going later after happy hour is over.

Constantly good food. Service varies, but mostly good (last night was very good). One of the hostesses is not always very friendly. But The food is good, the environment is good, and I have been coming for years- so I over look this and one of the not so friendly waiters.

Absolutely a wonderful dinning experience as it has been. Waitress was super friendly. Sunday bottomless mimosa was a slick deal.
Food was delicious. Desert is a must have - prepared by their in-house pastry chef. What a missing gem in the back road of valley forge park.
