Delicious food

This was really good BBQ. The service was fair. We were asked to wait to order as the staff was transitioning, seemed a little weird. It was cheap though $104 for 10 of us though we were not drinking for this lunch. This was the best price we paid in the whole of Aspen! I personally had the 1/2... read more

My family has been going to The Hickory House for years. The ribs are really good & they make great omelets. Pancakes tend to be dry. The problem with Hickory House is that the service has been going south for years now. There are just too many other restaurants to go to in Aspen to put up with the unpredictable... More

I've been here twice over 3 years on business. The BBQ is excellent - whether it's the spicy sausage or the fall off the bone ribs. My hotel recommended this place and I'm glad they did.

We had good fast service and the food was just what we were looking for in a barbecue restaurant. I liked that you could order just meat and salad. I avoid starchy meals. We went rather late in the day. I often saw long lines waiting for tables when we drove by

The old log building topped by a huge black bear is an Aspen landmark. Food is always good and abundant!! Carlos Special Omelet is huge and delicious!! The grits are great, bacon crispy as requested!! Coffee is good and wait staff attentive and knowledgable. The bbq ribs onion rings and all are great too! To experience "old Aspen", it's perfect!'

Hickory House has a great niche of helping people throw parties -whether onsite at their restaurant or for take out. They are really helpful in determining the right amount of food per person and helping pull off a party. In the past, we have picked it up for parties, and also had HH servers come help. In each circumstance, they... More

Great breakfast, except no real butter :(. Only hydrogenated spread. Big screen tv with 1st round of Wimbledon on and bottomless coffee. Basic service and plates on table too long.

We ordered the family platter that came with ribs, brisket, pulled pork, and chicken. The ribs are boiled and seared over a grill (not smoked!). There were sharp shards of bone in the meat (BE CAREFULL). The brisket, pork, and chicken were edible but not what I would call legit BBQ. I think the cooks smother the meat with bbq... More

I should ask my son to write a review, I was too concentrated onto not getting my fingers dirty whilst eating those delicacies and he, my son, along with my best friend Sergio and Paulie, the boss at Hickory House, were making fun of me... I'd easily say that Aspen is no Aspen without a visit at the Hickory House,... More

Took my wife to the Hickory House to see if the Ribs were as good as advertised. Bottom Line - they were pretty good. The portion were large enough for us to split a plate of ribs. If you are a big eater or burning lots of calories, then you might not want to split the plate. The restaurant recognizes... More
