My wife and I ate dinner here while visiting. She had the yellow fin tuna meal and I had the fish and chips. The tuna was excellent, fresh, well cooked and very tasty. The fish and chips I had was prepared well but I wasn't crazy about the fish they used (Halibut), had a fishy aftertaste. The chips were very... More

Stopped at this restaurant while touring the Downtown area of Hickory, NC. It was a bit dated but with lots of beer memorabilia. The food was good, and there was plenty of local North Carolina brewed beers to try. Seemed like a local favorite for burgers. Not too much else to say.

I must say that we went here for the beer. Olde Hickory Brewing makes some really nice brews. In particular we wanted "Death By Hops". Their beer selection is very nice and the selection did not disappoint. You can sample several selections before you decide what you wold like. If you still want several, you can order 4 oz pours...

Got bad seating,food was good.beer menu was a receipt and didn't describe the beers they had at all. Good pricing,a shot of Bacardi 151 was $5. I came with people from Lexington,nc based on recommendations,would never make a trip back just to eat like I did today.

..and come to this great locals restaurant in the old downtown. If you stay near the furniture mart, you might need a break from all the malls and franchise restaurants on that side of town after a long day furniture shopping. At least we did. It's VERY VERY EASY to get to the authentic and quaint franchise free downtown area.... More

I have eaten at this restaurant several times and it is nearly impossible to eat within the hour time limit I have for lunch. I have learned to ask for the check as soon as the food is delivered. On average, it takes about 30 to 40 minutes to get your food. I have learned to ask for the check... More

Can't beat the beer selection, price and quality. The food was very good; hamburgers were outstanding; fish and chips extremely good. Skip the desserts. Great friendly atmosphere, suitable for young families or serious drinkers!

This restaurant has some of the best food in Hickory and the service is great. Sometimes you may have a wait, but usually not a long one. I usually go for lunch and I definitely get more than I can eat, so I always have my dinner for that night.

If you are looking for a quick place to bring your family, at an excellent price, this is it. Their generous pub chips is a must have. This is one place all your family member will enjoy. Go on a night where you can hear local talents for entertainment.

Old Hickory Tap room has some of the best food around....their pizza is wonderful, the burgers are great, and the service is top notch. On Sunday nights they have Jazz bands starting at 7:00pm....always a lot of fun. My wife loves their Hot Ham N Cheese Sandwich....you can't go wrong at OHTR.....
