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.

This place was a gem of a find. Great food. They have a range of things. Everything from bar food to gourmet choices. I had the ahi tuna and brussel sprouts and my friend had the scallop and shrimp risotto. They were all delicious. The food came out in a timely manner. Great bar as well. I had two glasses of a Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand. So nice to go to a restaurant that serves wine from other places than PA!! Our waitress was very attentive and friendly! I’ve lived in the area for 22 years and did not know about this place. I will be back thanks to Trip Advisor!!

We were seated on the porch; wihich we love, but at lunchtime, the sun gets in your eyes & there are no shades to shield your eyes. It was rather noisy & for seniors who may be hard of hearing, it was hard to listen to our table members. Food was good, it has been a while since we've been there, and we were glad to be back.

Salmon was fishy & I didn’t eat it. I returned it. I was surprised when I was charged for part of my entree.
I’m sorry, I won’t be returning. Not good business.

Met a friend here for dinner. We got a table in the front room overlooking the road.

Our server was extremely friendly and helpful.

I had the mushroom soup and flank steak with salad. The food was very good.

I had an old fashioned with Woodford Reserve that I enjoyed.

Thanksgiving crowd with the bar very noisy and our table just off the bar.
Christine was a joy as a server and made us feel very comfortable
My wifes steak was undercooked and my turkey plate luke warm but were taken care of immediately upon request.
Nice compliment of seasonal dishes and ultimately had a nice meal
Rolls or some sort of breadstuffs would have been nice

So very happy that Cedar Hollow is open again for lunch after this horrific year we have all experienced. Missed them so much, but the food, service, and welcoming smiles made it worth the wait!! A favorite of mine is the mushroom bisque and Cobb salad.

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.

The hostess and waitstaff are very friendly. They followed through with a suggestion we made, so they really do take suggestions seriously! Marten is a wonderful chef! This is a perfect place to go to unwind after a hectic work week. We’re looking forward to their outdoor seating and live music once the weather gets warmer.

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!!
