    We had an excellent meal. This was one of the best meals we have ever had. The food, drink, service, and ambiance was wonderful. My husband, who does not like mushrooms, even enjoyed his dish that contained mushrooms. The service was well paced, attentive but not intrusive. This restaurant was well worth the drive from Louisville.

    Definitely a check-list Bluegrass experience…lovely old creaky place and excellent quality food, all either locally and/or responsibly sourced: highly recommend if you’re into quality vs quantity; nice touch for birthday guest …plate calligraphy and a private note…thx to staff! …my gripes are the same as previous visits and aren’t enough to keep me away but for gods sake a $200 dinner should come with bread/rolls/toasts or crackers esp when two of the courses are meant to be enjoyed ON something; and please please change that visually chaotic awful “art” that is everywhere…is so inconsistent with the peaceful character…blank clean walls would be an improvement…if you must display maybe confine to one room or the kooky bathroom…bottom line: spectacular cuisine and arrive with a sense of humor!

    In the past, I've often been more excited by the idea of Holly Hill Inn than I was during any actual experience there. But I went for dinner for their February 2023 menu, and I have to say that the whole thing was outstanding!

    The food is always very good or excellent at Holly Hill. The server was very friendly and beverages were delivered quickly. However, last evening the service was much slower than usual with respect to delivery of the various courses. The soup was cold as was the steak. The experience was over 2.5 hours.

    The cut of meat was not the best. A little tough and a lot of fat. I have had much better yorkshire pudding. Portions were small but delicious salad, appetizer.

    When we got there, we were told our table was upstairs. My wife cannot do stairs, in fact it was hard for her to get into the front door. There is no elevator. But the manager gave us another table on the ground floor without incident.

    My wife and I had a wonderful experience at Holly Hill Inn for an early Valentine’s Day dinner. The dining theme was Aphrodisiacs and featured several unique options across the five courses. Our choices for the entree course were the Stone Cross Farm Ribeye and Pan Seared Halibut. Both were absolutely delicious. Every aspect of this experience was great. I would highly recommend.
