Nice little bar with pub food

This is a quaint little bar located in the center of town that has a bar area and a seating area. There were several sandwich options as well as other food available. We had a party of 6 and was served quickly. The food was good as well as the service. The decor included hundreds of bar taps... read more

Friendly wait staff, good selection of beers, some of their own...try them all. We like the Brutus Cesar salad, good fish and chips. Did we mention the beer?

We eat here once every couple months, and can usually count on a good meal. The Fish and Chips is usually very good. The draft beer menu is comprehensive. Atmosphere is casual. Prices are reasonable.

We were a family of four adults and two children. Three had the fish and chips and were disappointed in the flavor of the fish--too fishy tasting. The table next to us sent theirs back to the kitchen for fresher fish. The chicken fingers were not tasting right either. The pizza ordered was so-so. I had the salmon, glazed carrots... More

Don't know why this is rated #1. It was loud, and the food was not very good. We both ordered Fish and French Fries- they brought out Fish and Chips (NOT English chips)- to their credit they did bring us French Fries when we mentioned that we had not wanted chips. Good thing as the potato chips were awful- the... More

This was an amazing place! Great beer, great food, and a server who knew what he was doing. Aaron took care of us and did a great job. He knew exactly what beer to recommend with our meal as well. My husband had the fish and chips and I had "The Big Cheese". Cannot say enough how great this place... More

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!!
