Running Rooster

Reviewed By Rhett L - Los Altos, California, United States

Bring your motorcycle or the entire family to this sports bar in downtown Hollister, CA. Pizzas are good and definitely try the chicken. Decent burgers and lots of TVs to watch sports. Plenty of dining area and a wide variety menu for the entire family.

Central town location to visit with friends, co workers or business meeting. Comfy seating if you want to just relax with your beverage or a small conference room to schedule for use.

The Heavenly Bakery

Reviewed By Carol R - Hollister, California

I stop by this restaurant several times a month and I'm not disappointed. I love their soups especially during the winter months. I sometimes get their soup & sandwich. Great soups. It's good to have good choices in Hollister.

The kids love the Mexican pastries and apple turnovers. I buy my tortillas there. They are made fresh daily & come in both flour & corn varieties. They also come in different sizes. Prices are great as well!

Country Rose Cafe

Reviewed By KariHough - Hollister, California

The veggie burger is one of my favorites and I'm not a vegan or a vegetarian. Skirt steak and eggs one of the best, and again the seating is pretty cramped I think they need to rearrange the seating so everyone is not on top of each other and you feel like you can have a little privacy

Casa de Fruta Restaurant

Reviewed By itchfoot - Chico, California

I’ve stopped here often to shop but it was our first time trying this restaurant. We expected “tourist trap” prices but were pleasantly proved wrong.

There was a wide variety of choices but I finally decided on the pot roast with a salad. My hubby had the (end cut) prime rib and clam chowder soup. Both were excellent and we also had a good sized chunk of fresh-baked bread while waiting.

Serving portions were large enough that we had leftovers to take to-go. It was very tempting to try some pie (large variety) but we were really too full!

Never disappointed with The Grove! Had our organizations get together one weekday and had a blast. I've been there many times and the food is great especially the wood fired pizza. Staff is kind and welcoming and its kid friendly.

Reviewed By GardenVisitor_11 - Bellevue, Washington

The staff at our motel recommended Miyako. They were right. It is wonderful Japanese food and excellent service. We thoroughly enjoyed our combo dinners. Sushi counter was full with people who were regulars—it reminded us of urban sushi restaurants.

Fisher's Delicatessen

Reviewed By Carol R - Hollister, California

The four of us show up at Fisher's every Wednesday night for "Wine Wednesday". We simply ask chef to prepare us a surprise dinner. He goes out to his garden and picks some herbs and goes back ti the kitchen. Suddenly he brings out our dinner. Wow! What a treat each week. We very much enjoy our food at Fisher's. I would recommend anyone to try this restaurant. You won't be disappointed.

Paine's Restaurant & Bar

Casual dinning atmosphere

Reviewed By WinoExtreme - San Francisco, California

I wanted to try something different from my usual Hollister spots, so I went to Paines. The bartender was very welcoming and helped me get a great bottle of wine, the food was solid too.
