More Stuff You Should Know


Here is a list of laws that Holly’s and our staff live by that will guarantee your dining experience will be a good one.

Holly’s Law #1
We reserve the right to run the restaurant for the enjoyment and pleasure of our customers, not the convenience of the staff or the owners.

Holly’s Law #2
We hate soggy fries. If yours aren’t crisp, the way you like them, send them back, maybe the kitchen will get the message.

Holly’s Law #3
We will keep your table clean and organized throughout the meal. If you would like to dip your dessert in ketchup, let us know, we will leave the plates on the table.

Holly’s Law #4
We agree that the customer is almost always right. If there is a problem with your food or service, call for the manager, we will fix it in a flash. But, if you finish your plate, it couldn’t have been all that bad now could it?

Holly’s Law #5
For 19 years, we have been serving big portions just the way you like ‘em. You will never walk away hungry!
