My wife and I went to Holly's for dinner and we had a great dinner. The service was great, the food was good and the beer was cold. What else can I say.

Always large portion. Cooked to perfection. Pot Roast is my favorite. My husband loves the scrimp. The popcorn is fresh, hot off the popper.

When traveling we prefer to try something local to the area and this was a great pick in Michigan City! Menu had a nice variety and everything that was ordered in our group was delicious. Stay away from the chains and support a local business.

I've been enjoying this establishment for 25 plus years. Occasionally there is a menu change, always for the better. Good value for your dollars.

Description
In 1974 Mike Buda, Holly's founder, opened his doors after many years in the hospitality industry at other area restaurants. It wasn't long before word spread that the food was delicious and reasonably priced, the service was excellent, and Holly's became a favorite choice for casual family dining. Keeping the business in the family, Mike Buda's daughters, Jennie and Michele, spent time helping their dad at work during their youth. Following their graduation from Purdue University's Hospitality and Tourism school, Mike turned the daily operations of the restaurant over to his energetic and capable daughters. The restaurant serves traditional American cuisine, with select Mexican specialties and Barbeque favorites to really spice things up! You'll enjoy sandwiches piled high with only the best-quality ingredients, delicious homemade soups and salads, and one of the best French Dip sandwiches anywhere. For dinner, try our strip steak - or feast on a variety of appetizers and late night munchies at our bar. Enjoy your team in action on one of our 15 televisions, complimented by your favorite ice-cold beer, wine, or a cocktail. The Buda family takes great pride in being a locally owned, hometown-dining establishment. And, in today's market of chains and franchises, it's a pleasure to experience the friendly welcome you'll receive at Holly's Restaurant and Pub. So, whether you're new to the area, just passing through, or a born and bred "MCer" - get together at Holly's for hometown family fun!
