Holly's, Bloomingdale?

Anybody remember a place in Bloomingdale, NJ, called Holly's (or Holley's)? When I was a kid growing up in Wayne, this was considered "fine dining"--- or, at least, my parents thought of it as "fine dining" as this was where we always dined on special occasions. I can't remember too much about it (beyond the fact that it was alongside a river...or so I remember), or what sort of cuisine they served, but I remember loving it (then again, I loved Goody's Hamburgers on Rt. 46).

Not sure when they closed, or why, but it seems to me that it was pretty much done at some point in the early 70's. Anyone have any memories of this place?

    Holly Inn from 1950s to 1970s, the same site became successively Lobster Shanty, Union House, Texas Rib House(?), Kopici (and latter closed after fire in 2010). Property seems to be for sale -- see http://www.loopnet.com/Listing/176818...

      Thanks, Drongo. Anyone remember whether the food was objectively good, or are my memories those of a hungry, undiscriminating child?
