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.

My husband and I always enjoy dining at Cedar Hollow. The food and the atmosphere is great. This time we are in the bar at a high top. The chicken parmesan fettuccine was delicious. Also we loved the creme brulee we shared.

Hadn't been in 15 yrs, went with a group of six friends. Seated in quiet room great for conversation. Our server J was accommodating, and took care of all our needs.
The soups are all delicious we had French onion, Mushroom, and Clam Chowder.

The crab avocado stack salad was perfectly flavorful and filling. The prime rib sandwich was another good choice, with the hearty au jus.
I had the red snapper with shrimp entrée, and it was inventive and packed with flavor.
For desert we shared the coffee crème brulee , excellent with a yum twist. (I luv coffee

I will return again soon to try some other treats I spotted on the menu.

Our waitress was very friendly! We were not intending on going to this restaurant and didn't know much about it but based on the reviews, figured we'd give it a try. We had a wonderful time and really liked our meals. A little bit limited on the menu and the only veggies were broccoli rabe or asparagus but we would go again.

We frequent Cedar Hollow on many occasions. It is one of our local go to's for family dinners and just hanging at the bar on a Friday. We love going there as the food is an upgrade from the regular bar food at many of our local restaurants/bars have and we generally see people we know. On this occasion 6 of us were celebrating a friends birthday. Our male waiter was the most snarky/sassy/full-of-himself and inappropriate waiters I have ever encountered in my 61 years! At first we thought he was trying to be funny as the night went on it got worse. He argued with us that we did not tell him about limes in two of the drinks. Argued! Which we did ask as I heard them ask. He was asked if we could change a fish dish up that included scallops and to change them to shrimp which he did said they could do, but he brought out scallops instead, so back it went. And then he forgot to place one of the orders so 5 of us had food and by the time he brought out the other order, we were all done as she asked us not to wait for her as our food would get cold. We did mention it to him and he did take it off the bill which was the correct thing to do. I have had this water on another occasion with my family in the summer and he was full of sass then. I'm honestly not sure he realizes how unfunny he is and that his snarky sassiness is truly downright disrespectful. I do not know how he has not been fired. I will attend Cedar Hollow again but I will not have him as our waiter ever again for sure!

My wife and I had dinner there on Friday, February 16 and it was delightful. We have had dinner there several times and have not been disappointed. The food and the service of always been great. The front room, while cozy, can be a bit noisy but it’s the room we like. My only comment is that parking lot across the street has never been paved and I don’t understand why.

Someone told us how great this place was so i drove the 40 min to try. Appetizer calamari was mostly uncooked but when mentioned it the waitress she said something about being sorry. Got blt wedge salad with no taste and very little dressing. Had the blackened rib eye which was good. Wife had corn crusted red snapper which lacked seasoning. They could easily correct these problems.

Do not give out many 5 stars for food. Food is always good at Cedar Hollow with a nice variety on the menu. It was a friendly business meal. It was easy to talk even with a musician in the bar (music was not loud, but you could hear it in the background).

It was a very nice place for dinner. The food was good and great atmosphere. I liked that the menu had items that you don’t find everywhere like veal and duck.

This was the second time at this restaurant. The first time, dinner was excellent and so was the waitstaff. This time it was New Year’s Eve and the menu had been changed for the night with inflated prices. The food was fair, especially for the price, and the waiter was terrible. I would recommend going on a regular weekend night but not for a holiday.

I have been here before and found their regular menu to be good value and very tasty, however, on New Year’s Eve they had a special menu with inflated prices. The choices were limited, but due to the occasion we understood why they would do this. We were a little taken aback by the prices but we assumed the food would reflect the increased price. We were sadly disappointed. The food did not meet a standard we would have expected for the price. Sad to say we were a little disappointed.

We were seated on the porch which was cozy but noise from the bar was loud. Food was good although I could taste an overabundance of cornstarch or flour in the apple pie. Wine list is so-so. Service was great. I would recommend it for everyday dining.

I came here for gankangiving with me two sons aged 3 and 8. It was kind of lonely to be there without the whole family as my husband was traveling. But the staff especially the owner lady made us feel so much at home, even playing and chatting with my lil one! The food was delicious and even my picky eater said “we should come here more often!

Thanks for a great evening! Will definitely back with the whole family

Thanksgiving dinner out. The tables were beautiful and the ambiance as usual was cozy inn. The restaurant offered a 4 course thanksgiving dinner or anything off of the menu. All of us but 1 had the thanksgiving and it was delicious and better than expected. My husband has the osso buco and loved it. We would absolutely dine here again anytime and certainly again on Thanksgiving. The meal and service were 5 Stars.

Cedar Hollow Inn is great for lunch, but once you get past the soup/sandwich/apps which are excellent, the chef does not deliver. I had woodfired salmon which was cold and looked boiled with one char mark. My husband tried the lighter fare, the tenderloin salad and it was served with a pile of meat bits. Our waiter was a little edgy for a quiet evening in the burbs. Ambiance is great!

Cedar Hollow is one of our favorites. It is ALWAYS delicious!
On this particular evening, a gentleman who was dining at the next table had s medical incident. Chelsea and Nicole handled the situation with concern, care and sensitivity... while allowing the gentleman to maintain his dignity. The management should offer those two a huge raise . You cannot train for those emergencies and these two employees were better than great!!!!
