Well I see the previous reviews were from over a year ago.
I held my wedding reception here in May of this year. As always the meal was prepared deliciously. The customer service was extremely poor. The staff acted as if we were placing a burden on them to assist us. This was a party of 60 professional persons and I received complaints from a few. As the bride I was very disappointed with the service received.
I approached one of the servers to ask a question and she rolled her eyes up in her head as if I were inconveniencing her. My daughter asked a server a question and she gave a smart response. I placed a request and it was totally ignored. When I inquired about the request the response I received was "I guess he didn't receive the memo,"! I was appalled as my request was simple and to the point and it was made only 30 minutes prior. There were other complaints but I am not going to go into any more detail. l realize that people will continue to dine at this establishment but I wanted to express my extreme disappointment with the service received on my special day and because of this I have chose not to give my business to them again.

this place is wonderful – I have been going to Hollyhock for years and it has always been a positive experience. The restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere, it's just beautiful. There are flowers painted on the walls, and lovely gardens outside. The staff here are friendly and highly trained. The food is family sized portions, so come with a group. They are famous for their pan fried chicken which is delicious. Their sides are all great, and they just keep on coming. Then when you are done eating you can relax outside in the gardens. Enjoy!
Great Place for any occasion – I love coming here to relax, get fabulous food, and be catered to.. All this at a price thats a bargain.. I would pay more in a heartbeat.. The servers are dressed nicely and very attentive.. The food is good ol' food with great flavor...
Group dining – I went to this restaurant for a Christmas Party. I was very pleased with the food, atmosphere and the servers. They were right there if we needed anything. There were about 30 of us there and we had a very good time. I remember their chicken was delicious. I hope to go back there again.
Overall BEST Restaurant in Indy! – When considering the superior quality and taste of the food, outstanding family style service, charming atmosphere and reasonable price - there is NO DOUBT that Hollyhock Hill is the best overall restaurant in Indianapolis!
Indy institution that serves hearty portions of Midwestern soul food. – In Short
Set in a big, old house, this neighborhood eatery has been a spot to share tables and home-cooked meals since 1928. Candles and fresh flowers sit atop white-linened tables in several rooms. The fixed-price spread begins with a relish tray of carrots, celery, beets and cottage cheese and ends with a dish of vanilla ice cream and a caddy of sundae toppings. In between, pass around fried chicken, mashed potatoes and old-fashioned white gravy.
Best home cooking away from home. – Hollyhock Hill really takes care of you. Located in an old house on North College Avenue, the food is marvelous! It's a great place to treat yourself for a special occasion. Meals are served family style and everything tastes home-made. Proper dress and reservations are recommended.
