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

This was our first and last visit to Hickory House. The restaurant was nice and the server was very friendly and helpful. The dinner salads were delicious but after that, our delightful experience turned sour. After waited for over 30-40 minutes for our food the server informed us that they were training someone in the kitchen and apologized for the... More

Grilled Shrimp and Ribs with a salad and warm bread. You don't need to worry too much about the side unless you have a big appetite. Good food and lots of it!

We were staying near the restaurant and the staff at the hotel recommended Hickory House highly. They were very busy on this Friday night (make reservations...), but got us in with only about a 10 minute wait. Very friendly staff and waitress came immediately. Steaks are their specialty, so we opted to share a big one--their house special--Porterhouse. It came... More

Just off HIghway 70 is a charming casual restaurant, with a faux log cabin decor. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. There is a full bar and a varied menu Steaks are featured, but we ordered the ribs, which are their signature dish, and they were very good. Ordered the half slab and the plate was overflowing. Entrees come with... More

I never got a chance to try the food. I waited for 45 minutes after placing the order and after I asked for a status they were running around not knowing what happened with my food. I would have been okay if they were busy but I can't even give them that. Can't rate the food but they definitely are... More

We tied on the feedback and liked it so much we went back again the next night. The service is good, the food is awesome, and the prices are quite reasonable. Huge portions! Try the ribs, and I highly recommend the potato chip appetizer (trust me!)

This was the surprise of my trip to the Columbus area. I opted to go here the first night I was in town because of its proximity to the hotel I was staying at. My colleague and I decided to sit in the bar which offered the same full dinner menu as the dining area. Both of us went with... More

Went to Hickory House on a local's recommendation, and I am happy I did. First the negative: They really need to add lighting. I think they are keeping the place dark for Atmosphere, but it is over done. Everything else is great. They brought out a loaf of warm, soft bread. I mistakenly ate too much of it before my... More
