We love Hickory - its our usual got to spot if we just feel like going out. They have great seating outside, and you can sit out there anytime of year. Inside can get a little loud, but still enjoyable. The food is always consistent and hot and ready.... Service is an A+ Its also of course a great place... More

It has a busy and loud atmosphere. If you want a table on a "game" night, be prepared to wait an hour or get there early. The food is great. I haven't had any bad meals. The food is always great. But the new food truck menu is fantastic. I've had the Korean BBQ tacos and the Chicken and Rice... More

Pretty typical sports bar, tvs are plentiful but could be larger, big screen is fuzzy/dated. Drinks were average, bartender friendly, patrons also. Lots better places in town, this was beside my hotel. One thing-no ribs on the menu! Off my list.

This is my regular pit stop after a good round of golf. the food is good and the people are great. We got the waitress to change channels to meet our needs without question. We are always treated well. It is a sports bar and a late lunch was not very full on this visit. It can get packed but... More

I like eating at the Hickory Tavern. The food is great and the prices are very reasonable. The atmosphere is a little bit on the "Sports" side. A lot of televisions with sports on them.

I love the Build Your Own Salad. I get to choose the greens as well as six other ingredients. Good place for couple or family gathering. The informal atmosphere is friendly with TV viewing from any seating.

We are already making plans for our next trip to the Pinehurst area to get back to the Hickory Tavern. The staff was outstanding and it's a fun atmosphere. The wings and beer selection were awesome. Some of our group are originally from Western NY so they were skeptical about getting wings but they ended up being very satisfied. The... More

Hickory Tavern is a chain, and the quality and service are pretty much consistent across the 3 restaurants I've personally visited. I like the Build Your Own Salad, which is very reasonably priced and, because you can choose your own ingredients and dressing, is a pretty sure bet. My husband loves the hamburgers and chicken fingers. Our main complaint has... More
