My wife and I have celebrated Valentines Day here for the last 2 years and thoroughly enjoyed both visits. We enjoyed the 7 course Aphrodisiacs Menu each visit. The atmosphere is perfect, the service efficient but unobtrusive and the food is simply wonderful. Inventive and perfectly cooked. I suspect we will be returning to celebrate the holiday many times in... More

Delicious fine dining experience. This place stands apart because it is approachable and not pretentious. The staff are relaxed and helpful and the building is beautiful. Some of the best food I've had, and an extensive drinks menu. If you are out on the Bourbon Trail or exploring horse farms, don't miss this gem.

My friend and I celebrated our birthday's at Holly Hill Inn's Brunch. Three-course menu is $25, with soup or salad, entree and dessert. And it was one of the best meals I have had at any restaurant. The service was excellent! (Thanks Krista) I ordered the Sea Scallops and my friend had Roasted Quail, both were excellent. My friend described... More

Our first experience at Holly Hill was great. My husband took me there for Holly Hill's Sweetheart Brunch. We had the savory biscuits with apple butter and country ham for an appetizer. They were excellent. I had the top sirloin steak with olive oil braised potatoes and asparagus. The steak was cook to perfection, very tender and flavorful. The asparagus... More

The restaurant is an old house in a rural area. They have tables on the outside porch which is probably delightful during the summer (we were there during January). The signature cocktails were balanced and tasty. The menu is limited but everything was delicious. The only criticism is that the hot water for tea wasn't very hot.

I reserved a table for friends and I for dinner after a busy bourbon/wine trail day. It was a perfect end to a great day! The food and service surpass excellent. The wine list is excellent and so is dessert! We cannot wait to try the brunch!

We were driving in the area enjoying beautiful scenery and decided to try this. NOTE: they don't serve until 11am, at least on Sundays in November. We were able to find someone and made a reservation for 11. My husband enjoyed the pork and I had traditional breakfast. It was a treat to have dessert at breakfast but the chocolate... More

Holly Hill is a destination culinary experience. It's not just the great good food flagship restaurant of James Beard chef Ouita Michel, the historic house in Midway KY with its charming rooms and inviting front porch itself lures you there. The food is southern with a contemporary twist. Farm to table is a mantra for Ouita. Fresh herbs and vegetables... More

On a lovely fall Saturday afternoon we had a late lunch at Holly Hill Inn. Was Chef Ouita Michel in the kitchen? I don’t know. We were seated in one of several dining rooms in what was clearly once a private home, so the room wasn’t very big, with five or six tables. The brunch menu was a three-course fixed... More
