Put on the wine (and whiskey) tasting itinerary.
Great location - amidst the wineries in Woodinville. Next door to Chateau Ste. Michelle and across the street from Columbia (and Januik/Novelty Hill). Awesome draft beer selection (including PostDoc brews). Loved the fish-and-chips. The crab/shrimp salad was only so-so, but I'll be back to try a few more beers and other menu items.
On the Fence
I'm still on the fence with this place. While the food is good, it's not great. It's not screaming come back. I dislike the dining room. It has no ambiance and is loud so I much prefer a corner table in the bar. The service is always good here, but I feel that this place could be so much more with a more inviting dining room and a tweaking of the food a bit.
NOPE, could be, but not willing.
Looking for a good local spot to have a drink, great spot. Looking for great food, nope. Food is not their deal. We cook almost every night. I have worked multiple restaurants from dishwasher to line cook to mgr. and we have both run restaurants. I am always excited to find the local gems, this could be it, but it's not. Food is lackluster, lacking flavor, a great hangout is what they are. Awesome location, history, etc., hire a real chef w/ a love of food and they can nail this. All the right pieces are there, just don't sit on being a relic in wine country, make Thomas Keller want to visit, hire a chef!!!
In a district fat with tasting rooms, this is a great food stop to soak up all those spirits. Ever since the conversion of this gem from old to new (and we had good times in the old), this has been a great food stop in the wine/beer/distillery district. Great varied options on the food menu, and the drink menu is filled with options for all. The "Mrs. Peabody" is a fav for me. Go next door to the Woodinville Distillery and pickup a bottle of the Peabody vodka. Excellent!!! Staff are great; they know when to bug you and when to leave you alone. Prices are good. Stop by and enjoy a meal before your next tasting.
Noise level was 11
A friend recommended the Hollywood Tavern, so we went on a Friday night at 6 pm. It was so loud in the dining room that I could not hear my husband who was sitting 18" away. Tables are way too close to one another, so you are bombarded with people trying to talk over the person at the next table.
We had the crab cakes and fired dill pickles for apps and they were okay. I had the mac n cheese and it was dry and not cheesy at all. My husband like the beef stroganoff, but not enough to come back again.
I would try it again but only if I was siting outside.
The "must order" dish is the Ancho Chile Tots.
Good place to grab a bite while wine tasting at the many, many wineries near by. A few creative and tasty items - including the whiskey milk shakes and the ancho chile tots. Fun, casual outdoor seating around a fire pit. If you visit the whiskey distillery right next door, you have to try their syrup aged in the whiskey barrels.
Tap was broken and had to stick to bottle beer and that too some of the menu options were not available. Ordered a burger with caramelized onions and the waitress came back later and told us that caramelized onions were not available. Seriously! How long does it take to caramelize the onion? This was our first time here..Nothing exceptional, just ordinary...
Our overall experience was good, the food was very tasty! My friend and I both tried the brussel
sprouts which were neither of us could eat as they were a bit too spicy.. but the rest was good and there was a nice selection of wine. The only issue was the server came and took our drink order and was VERY slow getting back until she saw me at the counter trying to get her attention..let me say iam familiar working with the public and I know she was busy, maybe you were short handed but we did have to wait longer than normal. Thank you, Rebecca
Won't give away your table, even though U R late
Amanda, the hostess, held on to our reserved table for 5 people on a fully-booked night even though we were an hour late. They were very understanding. However, I did call twice to let her know we were running late/on our way. We got excellent service. Good happy our deals.
Had reservations and chose the patio. Mistake with the road noise. The inside too was not exceptional however by the fire pit looked great ( crowded early). The menu was somewhat limited with respect to choices and the tots we had for an appetizer were just ok considering there were huge chunks of fat instead of pork being in the dish. Great wine list though. Food was nothing to write home about and unfortunately the service was slow. Won't be going back and we are chalking it up as "at least we tried it."
Excellent service, food and ambiance
Went to Hollywood Tavern for the first time and I was so pleased with everything from start to finish. I had set up a reservation and ended up being late, and they accommodating me when I got there anyway, despite being late. The atmosphere/ambiance was lovely. The food was delicious and the customer service was great from everyone. I would definitely come back.

It was a really really warm day and we got a table indoors... There was no ac so we were sweating over our dinner
The food was okay, I got the salmon- I've definitely had better and wouldn't recommend anyone get it
The patio was really cute, I'd probably only come back for drinks and sit outside
Great place to meet with friends
The Hollywood Tavern us an excellent place to meet up with friends. If you're looking for a great little place with charm and GREAT food, then go there. The service was amazing. Our waiter recognized that we were from the South and asked if we'd like him to make some sweet tea. It was perfect. Now that's service. Even the manager came by to make sure we were enjoying our meal.
Your friends will think you are pretty cool if you take them here.
Good Food - Slow and Indifferent Service
This is the second time dining at The Hollywood Tavern and based on the quality of service this may be the last time we go out of our way to return. While the food and ambiance is solid, the service is slow and inattentive. We waited 20 minutes for our drinks and then another 10 minutes for our son's soda to arrive. No apologies or offers to comp a drink or desert. The management must feel pretty smug if they think this is acceptable service. Note the dining room was only 1/3 full so one would think the restaurant could handle the basics.
Worth the wait
There was a very large party upon our arrival, and we had to wait over an hour for our food. But, the staff was very apologetic and bought our appetizer, one meal, a glass of wine, and a dessert. They went a little overboard trying to make up for the wait time but we didn't complain! The food is just great. It is loud, so don't go for a romantic evening. It is better for a fun, lively spot with great food.
Started great then faded
This place was initially a hit. Its right down the street from me and a great location. But what once was an excellent burger barely passes. The fries weren't cooked properly and over salted. The menu changes slightly, but really not enough items to choose from. Last time the burned the crud out of the chicken burger...Only 20 things on the menu, you have to cook them properly every time. Our friends were dining inside and came out to find us eating. They too had terrible food in comparison to previous visits and their service was so so. Also if I order Scotch by name, don't tell me you are out of that and not offer me another brand. And for a whiskey associated restaurant, your servers should know the difference from a single malt Scotch to a locally made Rye and what the differences are in the process.

The food and service have gotten worse every time we have gone there (4x) as we want to like this place but this was our last time trying.
We saw another couple there last night and they said they did not enjoy there meal either.
Worth a try
Dynamic spot for finishing a day of winery visits in the Sammamish Valley. Massive selection of whiskies, as you would expect. The menu is fun and the food is OK. Service was excellent. Our problem was to find items on the menu that we could enjoy without too much guilt....not possible.
We've tried five times and been let down each time
The service is not up to snuff, and that's a shame, as it detracts from what is usually pretty good food. We were seated and ten minutes later, no one had come by to give us water. I had to ask the greeter if we could get some water.
When the waiter did come, he messed up the drink order (write it down if you can't remember!). Food came quickly, but then we waited a long time for the check. The waitstaff didn't seem to care. And the restaurant wasn't full.
We keep going back, thinking things will be better, but they don't. We're not going back again.
These guys do it right!
I don't judge customer service on a one time experience. If people do their job correctly, we experience good custom service. To me, great customer experience is about what happens after things don't go right.
These guys get it. The manager heard about us having a less than wonderful experience and he stepped right up and took care of the issue. We came back. They took great care of us. The food was done right. That is how you earn a customer. I would recommend these guys without hesitation.
A fun dining place
The restaurant looks like a tavern from the outside but do not let that fool you, as the inside is very nice and the outdoor seating is cozy and large. Food was well priced, and good. Great list of appetizers and full bar. We were pleasantly surprised By the good quality food and fun atmosphere. A little noisy but that is just because everyone is having a good time!
We had heard about this place but hadn't been so we decided to try it out. We ordered some appetizers, which fed all four of us! It was excellent....Then the food showed up very quickly and there was plenty of it. We all liked our dinners very much and thought this was a place we would definitely visit again. Very friendly people working and quick service makes for repeat visits!
Dinner at Hollywood Tavern
We had a very nice dinner at Hollywood Tavern. Good menu with plenty of options. Good beer, wine and cocktail options as well. Service was equally good. We enjoyed everything but the noise level was so high, it made it really difficult to have a conversation with the others at our table. Not just noisy, very noisy.
Went for an early dinner on a sunny Saturday afternoon. The place was filling up quickly. Service was prompt and friendly. Had some drinks and fried pickles, then split a cubano. The food was delicious. The service was attentive but not intrusive. We didnt sit outside but the outdoor seating area looks like it would be a great spot on a summer night.
The dining room was super loud. I couldnt hear the conversations going on at the tables around us, but there was this constant roar of restaurant sounds. Not a deal breaker just something to be aware of.
A good time at The Hollywood Tavern
This was our 1st time to the restaurant and the wife and I enjoyed ourselves. The ambiance and décor were smart and clean with a bit of funky. The food and wine list were both good quality with the proper amount of creativity. Both offered good value. We shared 2 appetizers and 1 entrée along with a bottle of wine without breaking the bank.
The service was good, though it got busy and we would liked to have seen our waitress a bit more towards the end of our experience. The crowd was a good mix of everybody, a lot of people watching added to the good time we had. We will definitely return.
Great place to meet for lunch
I' ex been going to the Hollywood for nearly 40 years, back to when Mable ran it as a road house. My only issue is that with the advent of the distillery, parking can be problematic. You just kinda have to take your chances crossing the road. I'l keep coming back.
