A wonderful dinner

We had dinner at Josh's for the first time. I made the reservation and I was not sure it would be a good experiene. Lots of chain restaurants in Hickory that we don't enjoy. It was a good decision as all 5 of us were impressed with the food and the service. Thank you Josh for a wonderful evening.

Stephanie was my server and she was excellent. I asked for a cocktail that they didn't have on the menu and she secured the ingredients from the chef. Other places would have said, "we don't have that" but Stephanie and Chef Josh are resourceful people. Besides my wonderful cocktail, I had a delicious soup with smokey bacon that was so... More

Nice selections and the open kitchen add a bit of flair. Neat sides offered. Great for a special occasion or brunch. Ask for the chef's table..eye to eye with Josh and a little conversation.

Most of the times we have eaten here it has been very good. One night the food was a bit over done, so the flavor was off. We often will take friends with us. Would recommend trying.

I dined on a Tuesday evening entertaining a customer. It was my initial visit, but my customer has been several times and suggested Josh's. We sat inside and it was a slow night so we could easily discuss business over dinner in the small dining room. We had calamari as an appetizer, which I typically do not enjoy, but Josh's... More

They had a really extensive Sunday brunch menu and a patio area. We had the fried chicken lunch, but regretted not getting any of the brunch items because the plates being delivered to other tables looked really good, but the chicken didn't hit the mark for us. Wouldn't recommend the chicken, but would recommend other items.

We could have gone anywhere, but my Mom, who works in Hickory wanted to try Josh's. In a review I read on Yelp it stated it was "American Fare and Vegetarian." This is NOT the case-it's not even close to being a vegetarian restaurant. It's a small sized restaurant in my opinion. This weekend being prom and Mother's Day at... More

I have had 2 visits to this great little place. My first was dinner, I enjoyed a steak that was perfectly prepared and presented, I could not have been more pleased. The second time was today for Lunch. I had the Stew Beef Special and it was likely the best stew beef I have eaten. Nicely Done- I will return.
