Seating was 50% at high long group tables. Noise level was the worst I have experienced in some time....you had to yell at the person next to you. And the food we tried was only average, though we didn’t have pizza, which may be their specialty. And we had to wait 20+ minutes past our reservation time made through Open Table.

Holt’s would be perfect if it wasn’t so loud or cold. Even on cool night’s it’s colder inside than outside and it’s hard to have conversations at dinner due to the music being so loud

We brought my 95 year old aunt. They accommodated our request for a lower table, which I made ahead of time because I know they have many high-top tables. The atmosphere was loud & energetic, the food was delicious, & the service was great.

Non traditional pizza with new and inventive combinations - all very good. Have been a half dozen times and will certainly go back. Very noisy but worth it for the pizza and good craft brews. Would have given 5 stars but for the noise.

We go there at least once a week and enjoy the food, very consistent. It’s not the restaurants fault but it’s annoying when parents can’t keep their kids under control. Say next to a family of four and mom and dad were not paying attention to their screaming child.

I generally think the food is very good here, my kids love it.
They had the front of the restaurant open but then kind of huge noisy fans blowing air in (to keep bugs out they said).
But otherwise we really like coming here. Good drinks though my Moscow mule was meh.

After asking to sit near the windows, we were told there were no tables. There were communal tables which is weird and most of the seats are barstools without backs- uncomfortable. We were sat on the back side of the restaurant which is kind of dingy and lacks appeal. We were also near a table with small children. The restaurant is fine. The pizzas are great and our server was nice. They should try to strategically seat people near similar groups. Three adults catching up don’t want to sit next to small kids. They should consider changing their seating around to maximize in seating near the front t if the restaurant or fix up the back so it doesn’t feel like you are practically in the kitchen.

Great IPA's and cocktails! Great service and bar food! Fish tacos, salads and pizza!!! We always have a great experience. I also have to recommend the brunch, I've had everything on the menu and I can honestly say I love each item! The BACON - oh if you love "real" bacon this is the place for you!!! The Bloody Mary bar and bottomless mimosa's are also fantastic!

We enjoyed the best pizza ever!!! We created our own with several toppings. Even the servers were impressed with the look of it! All ingredients were generously fresh, and the dough was very crispy and thin which in our opinion makes a perfect pie!!

Service was extraordinary...she was so pleasant and helpful. Wine and bloody mary was also excellent! Be sure to go here if you are in the area!!!!

I feel that the quality has gone down recently. I used to like brunch here, but the last couple times I've gone the food has been...meh. Bland. My waffles in my chicken and waffles were so overcooked that they cut more like hard toast - not a bit of softness in them. The Bloody Mary is good.
The other complaint is that the cocktails in the evening are just syrupy and not good, but have so much potential. The menu looks good, but it tastes like they add simple syrup to everything. The old fashioned is thick and overly sweet. Even the G&T that used my favorite tonic was so sweet I couldn't get it down. I'm not sure if they do this because the customers demand sweet drinks in Park Ridge or if they are being cheap and watering down the drinks. Regardless, it's really disappointing, because it's a great space with a ton of potential.

I would recommend to a friend if they were only going with one other person. With a larger group, it is very difficult to hear. Voices all carry and the music is loud and with larger table, you cannot hear what anyone is saying unless they are right next to you.

Holt's makes everything from scratch. So in addition to delicious burgers, the appetizers are so fresh tasting. We had an experienced server, who was attentive, but not overly so. We all had different menu items and all went away happy. Reasonably priced menu.
