Suggest you ignore the poor reviews. I have been here at least ten times in the past 18 months and you cannot fault the quality of the fish or the service.

For a few days in December the Hollow became our local. There were things we really liked; food in the restaurant was generally good home cooking, (although the portions are so huge it's verging on comedy), the restaurant waitresses are friendly, and they even offer a 'drive you home' service if you wish to have a drink or two.

I have often eaten dinner at the Hollow but only recently had lunch for the first time. A single course meal was more than sufficient and my choice was mussels in a cream sauce. The mussels were small which usually, in my experience, means dry and tough but this large dish was beautifully cooked with each mussel lovely and juicy... More

Went for lunch for the first time today. I had the sea food platter. WOW is all I can say. There were 7 different types of fish on the plate. The fries were made from real potatoes and had the skins still on. To be honest it was to much for me and I would suggest you get one platter... More

The food here was really superb, unfortunately the service was extremely slow and intermittent. The staff seemed a little disorganised also....Wonderful place if they could get their act together

The Hollow Seafood and Steakhouse restaurant has worked hard to earn an outstanding reputation for serving the freshest, top quality food, all locally sourced and prepared to the highest of standards. Our seafood is collected fresh from Duncannon and Kilmore Quay and our beef is locally reared.
Our menu is designed daily to make the most of the best in-season produce. As well as an extensive restaurant menu served from from 12pm to 9pm each day, we also provide snacks, sandwiches and childrens meals. We also cater for vegetarians, vegans and coeliacs on request. Our restaurant is so cosy and inviting that sometimes we can get quite busy, so it's a good idea to call ahead for the busier lunch and evening periods.
