Delicious!!

This is a great place for ribs, BBQ, etc. Being from North Carolina, I can say that this is probably the closest thing to real "Southern BBQ" that you can get around here. The food is always good and the staff is always smiling and nice. Convenient location in the same building as Gerard's Wine and... read more

A nice clean restaurant that is consistent every time. Our grandchildren's favorite place to go! Liquor store is right next door if the adults want to buy wine or a six pack. Also good for a take out dinner.

Friends had been telling us about The Hickory Hog for some time and we finally went there today. Inside, the decor is zilch, but I have been in restaurants whose decor is gorgeous but whose food is not worth eating. The food at the Hickory Hog is well prepared and well presented. Yes, it can be messy, but, hey, we're... More

We own at the shore and have probably dined here more than anywhere in the past five years. BYOB, excellent food and service, casual atmosphere. Always delicious with no complaints about anything. After being told there was a 45 minute wait at Spano's on a Saturday, we took the short drive to Hickory Hog and sat right down. The liquor... More

Consistently excellent racks of baby back ribs with collard greens and tater tots make this one of my go to restraunts in Point Pleasant. During the summer months I eat here almost weekly. It is a bring your own bottle for both wine and beer. This is really nice in that they share the building with Garards Wine and Spirits,... More

I love BBQ and eat it wherever I travel. I've heard that this place is owned by the former chef at the Southern House in Point Pleasant, which had some of the best BBQ I can remember. It's reasonably priced, great portions, delicious food, friendly waitstaff, and shares space with a liquor store!! A fantastic BYOB BBQ restaurant that is... More
