Consistantly Good!

We are new to N.C., and were out "exploring" when we drove past the Hitchin Post.What prompted us to turn around and stop the first time, was the number of cars turning into the parking lot! There was a 15 minute wait line, but trust me when I say it was well worth the wait!.The food was cooked... read more

This was an awesome place to eat. We walked in and the interior will blow you away. When we made it to the bar, just walking thru the saloon style doors was fun. I personally talked to the owners and their input on the design and layout of this restaurant is incredible. And to top it all off, the beer... More

I have been past this restaurant many, many times but had never eaten there until tonight. The service and the food was great. The restaurant was very busy but we only waited about 10 minutes. Waitress kept a good check on us. Prices were reasonable. Buffet was good and was $11.99. I will return.

We were in transit to the Outer Banks and stopped in Williamston, NC. The Hitchin Post was close to the hotel and seemed very welcoming. It was a western looking place and we expected basic food. The salad was fresh and crisp with a little cheese sprinkled on top. Our meals arrived with a fresh baked roll on the plate... More

We were passing through on a long drive and noticed a very full parking lot. The rustic charm abounds. The menu was heavy on comfort foods but had something for everyone. The seafood options were great and could be prepared grilled, fried, or blackened. Lots of yummy sides. My husbands burger was fabulous. Both kids were very happy as well.... More

For 2.5 years I have been telling myself we needed to try this place while traveling from & to Edenton & Greenville, and finally, the timing was right. On our way home early enough in the evening that we would actually have time for dinner. This kinda out of the way restaurant is as rustic on the inside as it... More

Nice selection on the buffet. BBQ, fried chicken etc Service was excellent. Suggestion for the bread pudding. I like the big chunks of bread, however, I would suggest making them bone dry before you add the custard. It makes for a better mouth feel.

The desk girl at our hotel recommended this restaurant which met all our requirements. It was nearby and it was nearby. We were pretty tired. The name was a little scary, we didn't know quite what to expect, but it turned out to be very nice. All wood inside, it looked exactly like what The Hitching Post should look like.... More
