Nice brunch, outside, looking down at a stream. Service was good; food seemed a little slow coming out of the kitchen, however, but it was a nice day so we didn't get too concerned. Worth a return visit.

I requested outdoor seating and we were seated outside;however there were no heaters 🤨
Our waitress seemed to be very busy but she left us alone for too long. Also several of the items we ordered were out of stock so we had to settle for what was available. The food we did get was delicious. I was just disappointed.

We regret that the seating you requested didn't suit. Supply chain complications seem to be one of the most challenging facets of Covid-19 for our business. First we had delays preventing the tents from shipping out of Canada. Then later the same problem with the tent sides. When we finally got the tents and sides up, the heaters encountered the same issue. Throughout this pandemic it seems that we are always fighting to get some ordinary but necessary item that is stuck where we are not.

The food selection was very limited. It was not spectacular when it arrived. The French Fries made my stomach hurt and my kids felt sick as well. Was not impressed with the kids options. The room we were sitting in was small so I heard the other patrons conversation CLEARLY and I felt the need to keep my mask on since I was so close. The ambiance is over the top and a little scary. I dined here previously and the food was OK- borderline tasty but not this time- major disappointment.

The food was good. We had the brussel sprouts and wings and both were delicious. We were planning on dinner but the beer selection was very limited and our table was next to the kitchen entrance door and service bar section. We asked to move but were told outside was booked and to remember that for “next time.” Don’t think there will be a next time. Service was fine otherwise.

I have been to this restaurant in the past and loved its quaint atmosphere. The food has always been wonderful and once again the chef did not disappoint. The problem with the service was that there seemed to be only one waitress for the entire restaurant. She was doing her best but fell short because the restaurant was mostly full. We had come to celebrate a birthday but after 1 1/2 hours we could only finish our lunch due to delays. So, we did not have time for dessert. We will try again having a better experience in the past.

Please accept our sincere apologies for this lapse in service. Having spent the past year struggling to figure out how to keep staff employed with a fraction of the business we once knew and the recent uptick in business, although totally awesome, has caught us a little off guard. We have re-grouped and re-scheduled staff more appropriately (always a challenge in this business) and we hope that you will come back to give us another try. Could you please email us info@RobinsNestMountHolly

First time here...Pretty good restaurant. Food was good - the stuffed mushrooms, beet salad and brisket tacos were really good. French onion soup was ok - too much bread and broth a little too sweet for my liking. Menu needs to be perked up a bit with additional creative entrees. Service was ok - I think she had too many tables, but when attending to us, lacked a little personality. Will go back to give it another try...

Thank you for giving us a try, we really appreciate it, as well as your candid assessment of the visit. Not that there is any excuse for a bland menu; but, by way of explanation this pandemic has been especially difficult on our ingredients supply chain. We have our fingers crossed that as things open up so too will the flow of ingredients allowing us to go back to a seasonally changing menu with daily specials. Your service comments will be shared with staff.

We came for St. Patrick’s Day and it did not disappoint. We started with the Lucky Leprechaun Martini. The corned beef, cabbage, bangers, and soda bread were some of the best Irish foods we have ever had. For dessert we had the Bailey’s Irish Cheesecake. OMG. There are no words. It was also nice to find out that for all the major holidays you could get family meals to go. Definitely thinking of doing that in the future. Everyone was dressed up and it ended up being a fun date night.

As always, had a wonderful date night. We love The Robins Nest when we want a quaint night out. Hands down the truffle sprouts are a must to start with. For entrees we had the rib tacos (my husband gets this every time) with truffle fries and the goat cheese salad (a personal favorite). Great cocktail selection and as always the service was great and is one of the reasons we love coming here.

We enjoy a quite, cozy dinner at Robin's Nest, however we noticed during this visit that the food quality was not up to par. My husband and I both left starving yet spent over $80 for two burgers, no appetizers, and one round of cocktails. The burger was paper thin, and hardly any toppings to taste. Disappointed and most likely will take a long break before visiting again. Sorry!

The food wasn't anything to marvel at. The nachos were over cooked and not that good. Both meals came with mashed potatoes (red bliss) and 'vegetable medley'. Really, that's all you could come up with to serve? The brisket wasn't bad but for the price, it wasn't worth it. The waitress was a bit short with another table. PARKING WAS HORRIBLE! The decor and maintenance of the place left a lot to be desired too (there was a lot of dust everywhere).
