The Hollywood Tavern is located in the heart of Woodinville's wine country and has a philosophy of simplicity through authenticity. It uses fresh and local ingredients for the menu items which causes both the food and drink menus to be seasonal in nature. Come enjoy a drink as you relax around the outdoor fire pit or join a group of friends on the patio after work. Split a small dish such as Cajun wings, Ancho Chile Tots or fried pickles. Belly up to the bar and enjoy a glass of local wine or seasonal cocktail as you dine on a brick chicken, HPA cod and chips or the Hollywood burger that is made from local grass fed beef. During the summer months, there are lawn games and other outdoor activities available for both adults and children. All are welcome at the Hollywood Tavern.
The fried pickles are delicious and the drinks are superb.
Great location - amidst the wineries in Woodinville. Next door to Chateau Ste. Michelle and across the street from Columbia (and Januik/Novelty Hill). Awesome draft beer selection (including PostDoc brews). Loved the fish-and-chips. The crab/shrimp salad was only so-so, but I'll be back to try a few more beers and other menu items.
The food though was nice was a little disappointing. We expected a higher level of sophistication. It was very average to be honest. The Pasta was too thick. The Cubana was very bland and average.
I'm still on the fence with this place. While the food is good, it's not great. It's not screaming come back. I dislike the dining room. It has no ambiance and is loud so I much prefer a corner table in the bar. The service is always good here, but I feel that this place could be so much more with a more inviting dining room and a tweaking of the food a bit.
Generally pretty good with nice mixed drinks. Entrée salad was not up tompar
Great place with wonderful food. Noise level a little high during dinner hour and was hard to have a conversation across the table.
Looking for a good local spot to have a drink, great spot. Looking for great food, nope. Food is not their deal. We cook almost every night. I have worked multiple restaurants from dishwasher to line cook to mgr. and we have both run restaurants. I am always excited to find the local gems, this could be it, but it's not. Food is lackluster, lacking flavor, a great hangout is what they are. Awesome location, history, etc., hire a real chef w/ a love of food and they can nail this. All the right pieces are there, just don't sit on being a relic in wine country, make Thomas Keller want to visit, hire a chef!!!
The servers were personable, accommodating, and very attentive! They were very knowledgeable and we're glad to answer questions about pairings and suggest their own, which were brilliant and spot on!
Relaxed atmosphere, really good food. Loved the deep fried pickles. We would go back to try other dishes for sure. Had the brick chicken and it was very good. The service was excellent.
In a district fat with tasting rooms, this is a great food stop to soak up all those spirits. Ever since the conversion of this gem from old to new (and we had good times in the old), this has been a great food stop in the wine/beer/distillery district. Great varied options on the food menu, and the drink menu is filled with options for all. The "Mrs. Peabody" is a fav for me. Go next door to the Woodinville Distillery and pickup a bottle of the Peabody vodka. Excellent!!! Staff are great; they know when to bug you and when to leave you alone. Prices are good. Stop by and enjoy a meal before your next tasting.
A friend recommended the Hollywood Tavern, so we went on a Friday night at 6 pm. It was so loud in the dining room that I could not hear my husband who was sitting 18" away. Tables are way too close to one another, so you are bombarded with people trying to talk over the person at the next table.
We had the crab cakes and fired dill pickles for apps and they were okay. I had the mac n cheese and it was dry and not cheesy at all. My husband like the beef stroganoff, but not enough to come back again.
I would try it again but only if I was siting outside.
Too loud for my taste when you have to raise your voice in order to be heard by the person sitting across the table.
Good place to grab a bite while wine tasting at the many, many wineries near by. A few creative and tasty items - including the whiskey milk shakes and the ancho chile tots. Fun, casual outdoor seating around a fire pit. If you visit the whiskey distillery right next door, you have to try their syrup aged in the whiskey barrels.
Tap was broken and had to stick to bottle beer and that too some of the menu options were not available. Ordered a burger with caramelized onions and the waitress came back later and told us that caramelized onions were not available. Seriously! How long does it take to caramelize the onion? This was our first time here..Nothing exceptional, just ordinary...
Our overall experience was good, the food was very tasty! My friend and I both tried the brussel
sprouts which were neither of us could eat as they were a bit too spicy.. but the rest was good and there was a nice selection of wine. The only issue was the server came and took our drink order and was VERY slow getting back until she saw me at the counter trying to get her attention..let me say iam familiar working with the public and I know she was busy, maybe you were short handed but we did have to wait longer than normal. Thank you, Rebecca
Amanda, the hostess, held on to our reserved table for 5 people on a fully-booked night even though we were an hour late. They were very understanding. However, I did call twice to let her know we were running late/on our way. We got excellent service. Good happy our deals.
I have eaten here a couple of times and it has been outstanding. Love their burgers!
Had reservations and chose the patio. Mistake with the road noise. The inside too was not exceptional however by the fire pit looked great ( crowded early). The menu was somewhat limited with respect to choices and the tots we had for an appetizer were just ok considering there were huge chunks of fat instead of pork being in the dish. Great wine list though. Food was nothing to write home about and unfortunately the service was slow. Won't be going back and we are chalking it up as "at least we tried it."
We went there specifically for their brunch as it was very good last time we were there and we were very disappointed that they no longer served brunch. Lunch was still decent but still very disappointed.
Went to Hollywood Tavern for the first time and I was so pleased with everything from start to finish. I had set up a reservation and ended up being late, and they accommodating me when I got there anyway, despite being late. The atmosphere/ambiance was lovely. The food was delicious and the customer service was great from everyone. I would definitely come back.
