I work in the area and have a business lunch or dinner here at least once per month. Modern, though not fancy. This casual restaurant includes a bar area with dining that is separated from the main dining area. Both areas are quiet enough for conversation. A private party room is also... read more

Great menu options, friendly staff, it can get busy but if you like homemade chips it is worth going for their hickory chips.

The salad is the same as the old restaurant of yesteryear The Boulevard. And it is just as delicious. Served also at Old Bag of Nails. I've never had a bad mean at Hickory House and would recommend anytime!!

I needed a simple meal when I returned for work so I called and was greeted kindly on the phone. I placed my order for a buffalo chicken sandwich, fries and a drink. About 20 minutes later the food was delivered to my hotel. It was tasty and the little extras that I asked for were all there (ketchup, side... More

Eaten here a dozen times over the past year or two.Go back for the consistency of the food served and good service. Food reminds me of Goldilocks-not fancy or too plain-comes out tasting decent. Service even on busy nights has been excellent. A good neighborhood restaurant.

This place is something of a throwback but I don't think it's on purpose. We had good, friendly service. The food was only OK.

I was in town for a couple weeks on a business trip staying at a hotel across the street. I managed to walk to this place not once, but 3 or 4 times. The filet was spot on, their filet & shrimp had outstanding shrimp (not quite jumbo, but amazing). One of the visits I had the filet and ribs... More

Hickory House is the best value in Gahanna. Not only is the food great, but the wait staff is exceptional. The bartenders are excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant!!
