We ate outside. Be sure to have a reservation
I do not normally complain, but I truly want this restaurant to succeed as I support what they are doing. We were excited to try Holla, and requested to sit outside. The table and chairs were covered in spider webs. We ordered drinks, and as we sat waiting for the drinks we realized the entire seating area was covered in well established spider webs and lairs. This was a turn off for us and we decided to finish our drinks and leave. It's like going to a place with a dirty bathroom, you wonder what the kitchen looks like. Holla, you have a great idea and a beautiful setting, it just needs a little TLC. We will try you again.
We truly apologize for your uncomfortable experience. We definitely sprayed all of the tables and chairs with sanitizer that day before service & none of us had noticed. I did notice later that evening up in the corners of the pergola & I swooshed them away. I personally don't have arachnophobia but if it was a problem for you then we could have taken care of right then. And I assure you that spiders on our patio has nothing to do with the cleanliness of our kitchen or bathroom. Especially now!
Very good food and friendly owners. They locally source everything and the menu changes regularly. Best restaurant in Manitowoc by far.
Beautiful restaurant. We were greeted immediately when we entered. But had to wait quit awhile to receive our drink order and there were no sauce options either for the homemade chips.
Our fish tacos were delicious, and the pizza was good. But a longer than normal wait time to receive those items too.
Excellent service, beautiful view , and really good food.
Every dish I have ever had from Holla has been outstanding; the chef really knows what he is doing with the balance of flavors.
Fabulous as usual. We both had the salmon and grits. Such an amazing dish! I savored every mouthful. Thanks for a peerless experience.
Love the good vibes that go into the whole experience! Friendly staff, locally sourced foods, creative menu, exquisite presentation and mouth watering tastes!
Mushroom pasta was 5 star! Wine also outstanding.
Great local, farm to table restaurant with reasonable prices and friendly service.
Service and dinner were fantastic. Dessert was better than both!
Great food and atmosphere. I always find friends there!
Moved here a year ago from our nation’s capital and it’s been difficult to find a place for great food. Don’t get me wrong, there are several restaurants in Manitowoc that have special appeal; but, when it comes to Amazing food and Great customer service: Holla wins hands down. Makes me feel like I’m back home (born and raised in the District of Columbia).
The food was amazing, beautiful presentation. Love that it is all local and healthy
Creative, tasty and healthy food was had by us at Holla on Tuesday night. The stuffed mushroom with quinoa and the shephard's pie were delicious. Thank you.
We enjoyed our dining experience. Great service, drinks and tasty food.
We enjoy the farm to table experience that Holla provides. The food is always great tasting and has fun twists with the ingredients. The Chef comes out and talks to the people at the end of the night and will answer your questions about the dishes. We will continue going back!
I live in Chicago and this is my go to restaurant whenever I am in the area visiting family. Food and service are always great.
I find the overhead fluorescent lights to be too bright at night. I feel like I am in an office.
Even though I don't like the fluorescent lighting, the food and service will keep me coming back.
We have been fans of Myke and Shannon since their Wrap It Up days. H
Wonderful service and food! Our group ordered the salmon special of the evening, a wood fired house-made sausage pizza, and fish tacos. Everything was delicious.
Great food, lovely atmosphere. Fair pricing. I have dined here several times and the food is filled with flavor. I just wish they were open a bit later.
Really Enjoyed the Farm to Table menu. The food was delicious and appropriate dinner portions. Manitowoc needs a place like this for quality and delicious seasonal food.
We absolutely love this place! Great food! We are never disappointed.
Love that the menu changes daily!
We came across Holla accidently on our way from Chicago to Door County looking on open table for some place where we could make a reservation so that we wouldn’t have to wait. It turned out to be a really “awesome” experience.
The food was very tasty and the service was excellent. We had the fired shrimp, fall salad, and coconut curry with chicken. For desert we had a yummy chocolate flourless cake. All the food was served in a gourmet presentation.April our server was very friendly and kind. Mike the owner was very personable and came to our table to chat. The atmosphere was very relaxing. I understand that during the summer there’s a great patio with a view of the river. We plan to return to experience this. Also there is a lot of parking. We highly recommend Holla for a great meal and excellent service.
Manitowoc is a better place because of HOLLA! Great service, impeccable detail to presentation and a great place to eat with friends. Feels good to support local people who want to provide a great meal for a fair price. I LOVE the list of local producers who are supported by our patronage!
Best restaurant in Manitowoc! Innovative menu using locally sourced ingredients, casual ambience--and outdoor dining, as weather permits, on a lovely terrace overlooking Lake Michigan, friendly and efficient service. Who could ask for more?
LOVE Holla's! Farm to table deliciousness variety and surprises that don't disappoint. Owner's are true visionaries with a desire to feed people good quality food, that makes you want to return and see what's next. Great wine selection, small but quality choice. Bar drink menu is Wisconsin favorites, but updated and fun. There's always the amazing wood fired pizza for a quick pizza fix, which is amazing. Warm inviting atmosphere, big windows with a view. In warm weather a patio elevated off the street, so you're above the crowd and noise from the street. Where the view of the Maritime museum and River make you want to stay all day. We totally recommend Holla's and know you won't be disappointed.
Love everything about the place. It wasn't as busy as l expected for a Friday.
I heard about Holla from a friend. I made reservations via OpenTable, which I had never done before and it was simple. Holla is a treasure in our area. The vibe is fresh and comfortable. The staff were fun yet professional. The patio area gives off a metropolitan vibe. The menu options were delightful and the actual dishes were divine. Unique, flavorful, beautifully presented. Well done and we will be back.
Amazing time once again. This time it was for our anniversary and the chef came out and asked how it was and congratulated us on our anniversary.
This was my first visit to Holla and without a doubt I will go back again. The food was fresh and delicious. The basil for my Calzone was even fresh picked while we were there. The service was super, we were greeted upon arrival and our server made sure everything was just as we wanted.
Holla never disappoints. Great food....always tastes great.
Great food, much of it locally sourced and superbly prepared. We had the seared scallops with pasta and a seafood broth this time. Every bite was heavenly. Have dined at Holla quite a few times and always had an excellent experience, often with some new, creative flavor combination.
My meal was excellent! Wonderful atmosphere. We will definitely return.
Wood fired pizza excellant! Would be top notch if roasted garlic was added.
The four of us had a wonderful time and shared a variety of food. All of it was excellent and unique. We had two appetizers: The hummus plate and the caprese salad. The balsamic on the caprese salad was a delicious surprise. We had the duck with an onion risotto for our main meal. Amazing. And we had both desserts! Irresistible! The Nutmeg Creme Brulee was soooo creamy. The Flourless Chocolate Cake was so rich and decadent. Thank you for having so many Gluten Free options.
I have nothing but praise for this fantastic gem one block from the Lake Front. This IS our "Go To" place when entertaining friends from out of the area. To say the food is fresh is an enormous understatement. Chef Mike and all of the staff prepare and serve farm to table with such an amazing flare that it is easy to forget we are in a small city in the Midwest...This IS why we moved here (not the restaurant but the city...although it was THE first place we went out for)
5 Stars and Beyond!!!
Nice addition to town. Lovely fresh local food. Tasty and good value.
