Overview

Holley’s Seafood Restaurant's casual, modern bistro space serves (what else?) seafood pulling from American, Asian and Cajun flavors, all influences that have shaped chef-owner Mark Holley’s cooking history. Each room in the space is named after a member of his family, while popular dishes include blackened grouper with kimchi greens and ham hocks or crispy redfish with bourbon-smoked short rib agnolotti.
