Great Food in Hickory; definitely will go back.

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... read 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.

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.

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 blueberry... More

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
