Food is average. I only go because my wife likes it. Very noisy. My main gripe is they give you a little cup of dressing with your salad. If you want additional dressing, they charge you for each little cup. How cheap can you get?

We stopped in for a quick lunch and was not disappointed. Our server was very nice. She kindly answered our questions about the menu. Once our decision was made, we weren't disappointed. She also made sure our glasses were full.

Excellent fish & chips and huge portion. Be prepared to take some home....My friend had a burger which was equally tasting. Their homemade potato chips can't be overlooked.

I have had the pleasure of going to the Olde Hickory taproom for many years and they consistently have excellent food for good prices along with a wide selection of local brews. The positives: -The location is union square which very convenient for shopping, movies, and crafts, right off of hwy 127. -The atmosphere fits the restaurant perfectly. You feel... More

Their beer was great. There must have been 20 local beer on tap. The bar tender was very friendly but she was busy with about 15 guests by herself. I should have ordered a burger as others have recommended instead of their turf and surf daily special because the steak was tough to eat.

Sometimes crowded and Noisy but adds to the ambiance. Food is generally good and the Fish and Fries are Authentic to UK Standards, Serving staff are mostly rushed but polite.

Very pleasant. Great food. Do NOT leave without having their home made potato chips. Crazy busy for a week night. Still great service quickly. Deserts ver, VERY good. I had a Mountain Brown something beer which was excellent. We'd go back in a heartbeat.

This is an old Hickory staple with an excellent selection of beers and plenty of bar atmosphere. Local brews regional brews along with international. The food is good, though not great, still good and not a bad value. Great place for a beer and a sandwich etc.
