If you are looking for a place to go for a special occasion, this is definitely it! It is quaint - set in a historic building- and the food is second to none. The choices are great, food prep was perfect and the service also was great. An all around wonderful dining experience. It is pricey to eat there, but, again, for a special occasion, it is worth every penny.

I surprised my wife by taking her there for our anniversary last year. I had to open my wallet wide, but it was worth every penny. The steak was perfectly seasoned and cooked, the soup was sublime and the service exceptional. Afterward we went to the comedy show in the lower level and had a great time.

Excellent food, elegant and charming, worth the drive to this small town. Victorian atmosphere, with unusually well trained waiters. Personal touches throughout, including the antique silver and china service.

We made the unfortunate mistake of selecting the Sunday brunch at the Holly Hotel to celebrate my mother's 75th birthday. Upon approaching the food tables, I witnessed the wait staff rearranging the meager cheese tray with their bare hands. Yuck! Their advertised brunch selection is pretentious given the lousy execution. Was that french toast? Hard to tell based on appearance and the handwritten (tacky!) place cards were easily misplaced, making the mystery dishes all that more mysterious. The made-to-order omelettes were undercooked and the roast beef overcooked. The other entrees were so unremarkable I can't even remember what they were. Just overcooked. There were no fresh fruit or vegetable trays and the one lone salad, an unembellished arugula salad, was oil drenched. We tried to be gracious to the wait staff though I was the one to suggest he take drink orders to start and reminded him at the end of the meal that coffeee would be nice. To cap a disappointing experience off, the children in our party were charged at the adult rate. When we complained to management, they told us the wait staff watches guests to see how many times they go to the food table. Based on their observations, they reserve the right to charge at the adult rate. How many times can children, who are often picky eaters, be allowed to the food tables before they are charged as adults? What if they return several times for cheese and crackers and leave the Hungarian Goulash, or whatever that was, alone. My elderly mother eats like a bird. Why not charge her as a child? Cheap! I wouldn't mind paying the adult rate if the younger children had really eaten like adults. But they didn't, and charging us as though they had is unethical. There are much better brunches in metro Detroit. Stay away from this one!

The Holly Hotel is warm, romantic, and welcoming.
The food is outstanding...the wine list is very affordable...the service is normally very good. The cuisine is unique and vegetarians are not just accomodated but celebrated. Having eaten a great restaurants throughout the world...I still enjoy this small town treasure. Don't miss it!

What a gem! For more than 25 years, this restaurant in North Oakland County has been a family favorite of ours and our friends. Never disappointing, and the husband/wife owners truly have the right attitude when it comes to hospitality. The Holly Hotel is, and remains to be, what great restaurants USED to be like. Don't miss this one.

I highly recommend the Holly Hotel. I have dined their several times and have always received fabulous food and service. The environment with its candlelit dining room and Victorian decor makes for a delightful environment. The food is pricey, but it is always of the highest quality. Whenever I have guests visiting, I take them to the Holly Hotel. It is a gold mine in this area!
