Great sports bar

Great place for food and sports. Many, many tv's surround the dining area. We went for lunch and the service was fast. The food was good but the only complaint I have is that the portions were small. Only a few fries and the chicken sandwich was small. Other than that, no problems and a great... read more

Great beer specials and the food was really above average for a sports bar. Lots of big screen TV's with every type of sport to watch while enjoying your meal.

First time staying in the Pinehurst area. This place was close to the hotel and we went. Nice atmosphere and overall good experience. I liked the beer selection, which was over 100 beers. The hubs and I just split the half order of nachos and ahi tuna, along with a beer for each of us. The nachos were good, however... More

This is a raucous, bustling, happy place where there are no strangers and sports is king. Not the place for a quiet romantic dinner, but if you are a die hard fan you can have a good time here.

The food was good, ahi-tuna was delicious! The build your own salad was a great option and very fresh ingredients. It was a fun atmosphere but unfortunately our server was not so good. I am pretty easy going but even I was annoyed with her.

We were there as a group of 16 golfers last weekend. The food was very good the prices were beyond reasonable and the service was better than you would expect at a 5 star restaurant. You can't go wrong at Hickory Tavern!

Lunched here today (6/30/15) for probably the 15th+ time. Pub - sports bar atmosphere, REALLY good food, excellent service. Located off Hwy. 15-501 in a shopping center, ample parking, outdoor seating available. Favorites on the menu: the best Reuben I've ever had. Appetizer favorite: spinach artichoke dip (very cheesy) with chips. Salad: build your own from the menu - not... More

Lots of golf courses in the area so this place is busy. They have outdoor seating with misters for those that want the outside dining. Inside is larger than it appears from the outside. Typical pub furniture and flat screen TV's mounted everywhere inside. The beer menu is extensive and they have a full bar. The menu is pub food... More
