The food was average, the venue & atmosphere not so good!

I went there after skiing because I had been craving good BBQ. The dining room was very cold, but the waitress said she was not allowed to adjust it. The Ladies room was filthy! I have to say, had I gone in there before I ordered, I would not have stayed to eat. The floor had dirty grime in the... read more

The place is very old and in need of updating. Plenty of parking and the service was good. I would have enjoyed myself more if I wasn't so grossed out by all the flies. I had to keep swatting them away from my food. I had a brisket sandwich which was huge and very good. But the atmosphere was such... More

We stopped coming home late one Saturday. Typical BBQ menu done pretty well. Prices were reasonable. We had brisket and meatloaf. Comfort food for a non-special day. Quantity was sufficient to provide lunch the next day. We'll come back.

I always stop at this place when I'm passing through the area, as it is only about 4 miles off the Thruway on Rte. 28. If you were heading to the Catskill ski areas, it is right on your way. All the standard barbecued meats--pork, brisket, ribs--are consistently high quality, and the greens of the day (get the collards if... More

The atmosphere was what you'd expect from a BBQ joint. The menu was pretty basic. The food was good, not great. I think the prices were a little high for the quality and quantity. I really liked the corn bread and biscuits and the brisket was plentiful and tasted great heated up the next day. The wings were OK, but... More

The food was bountiful and delicious. This was our second time at Hickory BBQ and I am sure we will return again! We went in for lunch and there were maybe four other tables occupied in the whole restaurant, and a few people in the bar area. We asked at least three times for bread or rolls to let the... More

The food is great! The staff is very warm, friendly, and accommodating (especially if you have food allergies). It is a short drive to the town of Woodstock. You pass it after you get off of the NY State Thruway (Kingston exit) on your way to Woodstock. (It would be on the left hand side of Rt 28 when you... More

Crossposted to yelp... This is a big review, since wedding catering is no joke. Over a year ago we tried out Hickory as a potential wedding caterer for our wedding at Owls Hoot Barn in Coxsackie, around 40 minutes north of the restaurant. We'd loved our meal so we just went with them! I don't live in the area so... More

My husband and I were in the mood for some BBQ and had no idea that there was a BBQ place here in Kingston until we looked it up! We ordered over the phone and picked up our order. One half of the restaurant was pretty smokey and we were super glad we were getting our food to go. Ordered... More
