We met our daughter here as it is halfway between where she was and where we live. I had not been to downtown Hickory before, and it was rather nice. We had to wait a bit to get seated, but it was worth it. We were there for a Sunday brunch, and there is some limitations to the menu (no... More

Josh's provides the diner with a relaxed, high quality, and intimate experience. What Josh's is NOT is a sports bar/tavern. We dined at Josh's on the night of 21 SEPT and witnessed the behavior of the party of 16. Several in that party (not all) must have thought they were in a sports bar. To wit, their loud and boisterous... More

Visited for brunch on a Sunday. The food was great. My husband started with the gravy and biscuits, and said it was delicious. I tried the fried green tomatoes with spicy pimento cheese, and it was freshly made and still hot when it arrived at the table. Our entrees were both just as good. Only downside was the service.

If you are in Hickory, check out Josh's for lunch or dinner. I enjoy the in town location and supporting a locally owned business. Several strong menu items to choose from. Love the veggie sides. Fun to share. I also enjoy the outside dining option.

We were here on Halloween night, 7pm. It wasn't crowded at all. The service was mediocre at best. There were only about 5 occupied tables in the restaurant with 2 waitstaff. The food was great although the mahi mahi was a little over cooked. We are both light eaters and split the Mahi Mahi w/ the crayfish. The sauce was... More

Josh's is one of my favorite places to eat. The atmosphere is amazing. It is a smaller area which allows for an intimate dining experience. The fried green tomatoes and Pimento cheese appetizer is ALWAYS delicious!

Food was good! $105.00 for 3 people and we all drank water!! All the sides were shared! Overall, it was good food but not for the price. Lunch is good also and a lot more economical!

The scene: Dropped by Josh's for dinner while we were on vacation. Opted to find something local and the menu seemed promising. The experience: We came on a day and time where it wasn't all that busy at the time. The food was very good. Wife raved about the pimento cheese. I enjoyed the shortrib, the wife enjoyed the duck....

Was in Hickory for a trade show and looking for something different. Tuesday evening was not crowded on the square, so we picked Justins. Seated quickly by very nice waitress that asked if we had been in before, which we had not and she took us through the new menu that she said had just been updated. She was very... More
