I've heard my parents talk about this place since it opened and I finally got a chance to try it when I went home. AMAZING! My dad raved about the beef short ribs and they were fantastic...very flavorful and so tender. The mac and cheese and sage fried corn were great. Definitely on the list of restaurants to go to...

We were back in town and included Josh's as one of our restaurant stops in Hickory. Better waiter - actually he was great. Better food (except my friend's grouper that tasted fishy). The menu is still varied and creative. Had a great crispy duck with blueberry gastrique. The spinach salad with feta included onions that seemed to be sauteed with... More

Josh's is one of the best restaurant's in Hickory. The food is always very good. Josh is a creative chef. He uses fresh ingredients and can easily accommodate dietary restrictions. It's a small place so be sure to make a reservation. Great location on Union Square!

Josh's is either first or second for upscale dining in Hickory. Well prepared food and great service. Excellent value.

This is my favorite place for a special occasion like an anniversary or birthday. The chef is wonderfully creative, the service is excellent, and the atmosphere is intimate and quiet. I strongly recommend their Cosmopolitan.

Hoping to try something new during our annual visit to Hickory. This restaurant had only one other couple in it when we dined. The waitress didn't know the menu or their bar selection. Our appetizers were ok but the fried green tomatos were so raw we couldn't even chew through them. Caesar salad had little flavor, chicken only made it... More

Just finished Sunday Brunch with my family. Great restaurant and good value. I don't mind spending money on good food. You can sit outside in warm weather. Dishes like barbecued shrimp are not at all what you would expect but are great. One of my world traveler friends said that is was one of the best meals he has ever... More

I don't get the opportunity to eat at Josh's often, but when I do- I always have a great experience with food. I love the look of the restaurant as well. Outside dining is nice and Sunday Brunch is a fantastic value.

Excellent food, priced a little high but the atmosphere was unique and excellent party place. I am definitely renting this space for my next party.

We went to Josh's after checking a magazine in our hotel room. What a great find! We arrived early enough to be able to sit at one of the Chef's tables. No extra charge, just a great table right at the kitchen bar so you can watch all the action. Josh is a chef with a passion for unique flavors.... More
