Visited recently for lunch with 2 friends who had never been here. They loved it as did we. There are lots of interesting choices. Our server was most attentive and friendly. My only complaint is that we had made reservations and still ended up with a 20 minute wait.

I wish I had saved room for dessert! I ordered from the thrifty Wed menu - German cabbage rolls with mashed potatoes. Absolutely delicious! A nice salad came with it too. My dining partners also enjoyed their meals very much. Next time I will check out the dessert case before my meal and plan accordingly! They looked fabulous.

I have been coming to the Robin's Nest for over 20 years. I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant. My boyfriend wanted a nice, upscale place to eat that wasn't pretentious or trying too hard with the latest food trends. Robin's Nest was exactly what he wanted.

Don't forget to try the chocolate torte for dessert.

I have been here many times and this is my favorite restaurant. It is small and has great food different from some of the larger restaurants,. My favorite luncheon food is the grown-up grilled cheese. I just had the honey chipotle salmon and it was delicious.

I love Sarah the bartender she was our server on this visit. As always she was awesome. Food came out on time, coffee and drinks on deck. My issue was with the food. Although my dish was fantastic..for 14.95 I had the smallest amout of lox on my english muffin . It was HIGHLY disappointing to receive such a tiny portion of lox. So I paid for lettuce, English muffin and a poached egg with a cilantro dressing for 14.95. I never complained. I like the establishment a lot and will definitely go back for sure. Just please give a little more please.

Service was good, ambience was good. We had a party of 6 for brunch 5 of us disliked our dishes. The potatoes had a strong smell & vinegar taste, the toast was burnt, the cheese on the omelette was not melted. From the bacon to the eggs to the potatoes it all had a very microwave taste. We were very unimpressed & disappointed.

This is never a review that we want to see. The items that you mention are inexcusable; but, as wonderful as our staff is they are human and mistakes do happen. We join you in your disappointment. However, we assure you that preparing food in this manner is not the norm for our restaurant. We would like to send you a gift card in hopes that you would consider returning and giving us another chance. If you would accept one please email us a mailing address at info@RobinsNestMountHolly

We had a reservation for a table. Arrived and checked in with hostess who left us standing for five minutes at the desk while she attended to some other matters. Staff seated someone who came in after us while we still remained standing. We were then seated at a hightop in the cold, drafty, loud bar area and informed that our reservation would only guarantee us a seat in the restaurant, not a table in the dining room.

Responded on December 28, 2019

This Xmas Eve was our busiest in years. I offer that not as an excuse; but, more as an explanation. When we saw the reservations coming at us, plus knowing we would have walk-ins, we brought in 2 hostesses. So with 2 hostesses seating people, we apologize that 1 was dealing with your seating arrangements while the other was dealing with guests behind you. I hope that the hostess offered that you could always wait for an alternate table. Also when making a reservation request a certain table.

The chicken that I ordered with my salad was still raw in places so it had to be sent back. The waitress seemed very annoyed with us throughout the entire eating process. She asked me if I was done my salad but had already touched the plate and therefore I was done. I wasn’t though. She never asked us if we wanted more water until the meal was over.

Arrived 15 minutes ahead for our 145pm reservation, party of 3,expecting perhaps a holiday weekend wait. Were abruptly told, you can sit at a high top in the bar or a small window table. We chose the window. SMALL was an understatement. The was hardly room for 3 small plates, let alone soup or salad plate or glasses. We were barely thru the soup when our entree was " thrown" down with a huff. Toast was ordered for the omlette which wasn't served until requested twice, then 1 slice of semi toasted sourdough was slung on the table when the omlette was half done.
Other issues but why bother. Once they started vacuuming and dropped our pricey bill we got their unsubtle message.
I booked it using a $50 reward and they refused to honor it. Said there was no record, even after showing email and reservation code with $50 gift. Definitely needs work in customer service area and stop riding on old reputation.

It was OK. They stuck us at a table right where they take your name when you walk in. It felt more like we were in an area for out casts. Also, every time the door opened, you could feel like the cold outside. You could also hear all of the conversation with the people at the front. Not ideal for my romantic date. My husband's steak was over cooked. The carrot cake wasn't very flavorful. I did have brisket and mashed potatoes that were very good. I don't think it's somewhere I would come back to.

I had a new persimmon salad with pistachios, raisins and grilled chicken with a sublime port wine dressing. It was absolutely wonderful!!! The salads at Robin's Nest never disappoint. The clam chowder was loaded with sweet clams enveloped in a rich perfectly seasoned creamy base. And the southwest quesadilla was HUGE - filled with cheese, turkey and bacon. There's always something for everyone at Robin's Nest. Quaint, quiet, creative food choices and if you're interested the BEST desserts, and wonderful accommodating staff.
