I can't reall.complain about anything reall. Everything was just okay. I had the ribs and my guest had a porterhouse (house specialty). Everything was good but not special. This place is a bit out of the way.

Delicious ribeye cooked perfectly medium rare, with baked potato. Birthday dinner for my family. Attentive staff, our water was never empty. My husband had the fish and said it was some of the best he has ever had. Awesome coleslaw, I like it with a tang and it is perfect. My salad was loaded with blue cheese, which I love.... More

I decided to try Hickory House for dinner based on the recommendations of a hotel guest and staffer where I was staying nearby … and I’m very glad I did. It was a busy Friday night ~ apparently the place is very popular with locals, and not just a convenient place for travelers staying at nearby hotels ~ and I... More

Considering Trip Advisor and Urbanspoon's good ratings, I had already determined prior to my trip to the Columbus area that I'd eat here. It was so convenient to the hotel I was staying at. But this was one of the most disappointing dining experiences I've had in quite awhile. The two meals I had a taste for were either the... More

We ate there twice and really enjoyed the food. Their ribs are as good as what we get here in the South where we live.

My first visit was filled with large portions. We boxed a good bit. The food was delicious. I chose one of the mainstays as I know those options are usually best at any restaurant. The service was above average.

Saw this restaurant on the way to drop a coworker at hotel across the street. We decided to grab a quick dinner there. It was just ok. Their menu focused in ribs and steaks and neither of us ordered them, so maybe the fault was ours. One drink plus dinner ran about $46. Although it was only 6 pm and... More

This is what dining should be! Quiet, with delicious food! I could barely hear the soft music playing, I never once had to raise my voice when speaking to my darling wife over dinner and I could hear her clearly. Never had to put up with fifteen waitresses walking past my table clapping hands on their way to a nearby... More

The Hickory House was a total let down. I had the burger, completely underdone, scary raw, fries were not cooked. Not going back.
