Would have given 5 stars, except they were out of chicken wings and poke, which is what we went there for. This forced us to try other dishes, like the mac and cheese and shrimp tacos, they were very tasty as well. I believe the fall festival had them sold out on Saturday night and there was also a wedding shower there that afternoon. Food is always good... More

Outstanding in every way. Great interiors, great staff, and AMAZING food. The chef made me a gluten free calamari steak, and a butter free lemon sauce that was to die for. What a wonderful experience to have gourmet food that is gluten free. Mondays are also half-price wine days, so make sure to reserve a table. More

This was the best meal I’ve enjoyed in years. The service was excellent and the setting was gorgeous. We had heard great things about the food and it did not disappoint. The brussel sprouts were wonderful. My chicken was perfectly cooked and the entire dish worked well. My mother’s pasta was really flavorful as well. We drove farther than usual to come eat at Hollins house but it was definitely worth it. More
