Fabulous!

I took my two children in for Friday lunch, and it was delicious. I had the blistered grape and arugula salad with grilled salmon. I had to fight the 3yr old off for the grapes! He had the grilled salmon with a bourbon mustard glaze and rice on the side. For dessert we shared a piece of the wild... read more

If I want a real service and fine dining experience, I'll go to Charlotte or Asheville... so, I know what to expect from Hickory. The food is good. The arugula salad w blue cheese and grilled salmon is my favorite. The shrimp and grits are good. Not a lot of variety in Hickory, so I do appreciate Josh's.

We enjoyed Easter Bruch here. The food was great! The staff did their job well. The price was very reasonable for our three course Bruch! Our only complaint was the temperature. It was uncomfortably cold inside. We mentioned this to our waitress but nothing was done. The people at the table next to us were also cold but I am... More

We had Sunday brunch at Josh's today and we're terribly disappointed in our food and service. We have eaten there numerous times in the past but the food and service have gone downhill. Shrimp and grits had several tails still on them and waitress seems unconcerned. Our banana pudding was uneatable and runny. We ordered unlimited Mimosas for brunch and... More

lunch with friends, service good, food OK I had a shrimp taco and potato salad, maybe not the best combo, a salad would have been better. I left feeling not quite satisfied.

We were in town to see my parents and brought them here for Sunday brunch. I hesitated in doing so, as the last time we came here we had to wait even with a reservation, but that was on Father's Day, so I thought I'd give them another shot. My mistake. They were not overly busy, but our table was... More

This is a great family restaurant. Items are served 'family style' and are generous portions. You may either specify which sides you prefer, or permit the Chef ( usually Josh) to make his choices based upon entrees chosen. We always ask for the macaroni & cheese. It is not a large facility and fills up quickly-be patient.

My daughter and I met in Hickory for lunch and Josh's had been recommended to us. The restaurant is located in a very interesting row of shops and restaurants. We sat at one of the tables in front of the kitchen and enjoyed watching the cooks work while we ate! I had the angus burger and it was cooked perfectly!... More

We were in town for a trade show and Josh's was recommended very highly at the hotel and at one of the other downtown businesses. We always try to dine locally when we are in different towns rather than any of the chains. The menu offered a wide variety from beef, seafood, fish and duck. Sharing the sides was nice... More
