On a recent trip to Walla Walla we felt like some good southern food and decided to eat at Whoopemup Hollow Cafe in Downtown Walla Walla. We arrived right after opening for dinner and were asked if we had a reservation. We were the only...More

This restaurant was our favorite find in Walla Walla. We liked it so much we ate there twice. The setting is comfortable and charming - very nice decor. The wait staff couldn't be better. The food is New Orleans - southern style and is delicious....More

We went here based on TripAdvisor recommendations. Amanda, our server, was very efficient, friendly, and knowledgeable, having worked there 8 years. My wife had the shrimp and grits entrée, which actually seemed more like a “small plate” size. I had the jambalaya, which was very...More

The menu is mostly Cajun. The portions were large enough so that sharing was easy. The desserts were wonderful - I had Creme Brulee. A tad expensive but then again, where I live most of the Cajun places have the original dirt on the floor,...More

When trying a new place I like a little menu guidance. The standard answer to “what’s good?” is usually “everything”, which is no help at all, so now I ask “what are the most popular dishes?” This question lead us to the Beans and Rice...More

If you like Southern comfort food, this is the place to come in Walla Walla. Hush puppies come free instead of bread, collard greens are the usual vegetable side, and you’ll find Northwest takes on classic southern dishes such as jambalaya (shrimp is extra), crawfish...More

The waitress was quick to greet us and seat us, food took about average time to get to us after we ordered. Our Coffee and water never emptied. Waitress was attentive but not over bearing. Price was about right for a downtown nice but not...More

First of all, I will say we’ve dined here before and the food used to be great, still might be. It’s the service that killed this night for us. When Ross was there, it was great, and at both locations he would bend over backward...More

My goodness! Turning you (or anyone else) away from having a good meal and a good time is NOT what we want to do! That being said, we wish we could predict unexpected busy times and have staff in place. We would be happy to...More

No---we didn't have reservations and had no problem---I supposed if there is a big event doing on in town or at the college that reservations would be a good idea--otherwise not really necessary
