Great Fish & Chips

The best fish & chips in Hickory plus a wide assortment of beer. They also have good burgers, wine and mixed drinks. It's a fun hangout on the square.

Great locally made beer, mostly Americana menu, usually crowed and noisy, not a good choice for a quiet meal out. Service can be a little slow depending on the crowd.

I´ve been here for a couple of times while a business trip to N.C. - the food is great, especially the *blue-moon burger*, the *fall of the bone ribs* and the spinache dip !!! nice extra, they serve a original bavarian *wheat beer* which nearly tasts like ours in bavaria! I relly wish i could have somer burgers here again!!

We eat here often. The food and staff are great. My wife loves the Big Cheese (cheeseburger) and I love the crab cakes. We have taken family and friends and they always enjoy it. It is a great place right on the square.

We are always greeted pleasantly at the door, service has always been very good. I particularly enjoy the fish and chips with beer cheese dip. But friends/family have tried the burgers and said that they are good. The micro-brew is excellent, but I'm not a beer connnoisseur, just know what I like! Truly, I've not had a bad experience here,... More

The burgers are great and so are the fish and chips. Can be a little slow getting your food but the atmosphere is awesome and... More

Suggest Jerk chicken Sandwich and Chicken Tenders. Would give great food if pub chips were cooked to order, but was told by waitstaff when they were burned and scalded there was nothing she could do because they are prepared ahead in batch and rest would be same. Not my idea of fresh pub food. Yet I'm guilty of going back... More

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.

A Hickory staple. Great atmosphere, excellent beer selection... Average food and service. Burgers, pub chips, and an Hickory Stick Stout.
