Our food was served cold
they did make it right but should not serve cold soup and food
a bad experience unfortunately
they said because their other resturants needed help so they were shut down for 2 weeks but that should not be an excuse for cold food expecially for the price

Wonderful food and great service. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Kentucky. The inn itself is so unique and offers plenty of historic interest. Their menu is always changing up and offers plenty of local dishes.

I've frequented Holly Hill for years. Menus are varied and the staff are top notch. Holly Hill is lovely inside, and if the weather is conducive, dining on the front porch is very nice. Highly recommend.

Holly Hill’s brilliant marriage of gourmet and southern tastes (read not only foods overall, but the use of very local farms’ produce to keep the menu seasonal) never fails to please the palate. I thoroughly enjoyed an Eggs Manhasset and a Blackberry Bramble cocktail. Conner gave us excellent, yet relaxed, service and we were all very happy with our brunch experience. Thank you Chef Ouita and Crew!

This place is PHENOMENAL. We loved it so much I begged my husband to go back two nights in a row. We were on our honeymoon and when we arrived, we were greeted with two flutes of champagne and a hand-written card from the staff. The quality, creativity, and portion sizes of the food were all exceptional. Our server Jess also gave us some fantastic local recommendations for places to see and eat, and the service was perfection. They work as a team and will go above and beyond for their guests. The ambiance is exemplary, with classic decor and 1950s-60s jazz playing in the background. A simple candle and fresh wildflowers add a homey touch that is all the more welcoming. If I ever were to own a restaurant, this is how it would be.
Thank you for a divine dining experience!

This is a MUST GO spot if you are looking for charming ambiance and excellent food! It truly does have that “wow” factor that you can’t find just anywhere.
Everyone we encountered was friendly and welcoming. It made the experience that much better! A big shout out to Madison and Chris for checking in on us and being genuinely hospitable!

Wonderful! Was just cool enough to dine on the front porch, beautiful canopy of trees for shade. Very peaceful and tranquil.

Homemade pasta with hazelnut pesto was fantastic as was the lamb neck. The chef prepared it with polenta as I do not care for chick peas and worked wonderfully together with the delicious juice from the lamb.

Fruit galette for desert was a great finish.

Great service, fantastic food, lovely inn.

If I’m ever back this way I will definitely return!
