Great Steak

Went to the Hickory House for the first time 12/11/15. Ordered the porterhouse steak and it was probably one of the best steaks that I have ever eaten, outside grilling it myself. They said it was one of their signature items and I couldn't have agreed more with their assessment. Served with garlic... read more

Went to the Hickory House for the first time 12/11/15. Ordered the porterhouse steak and it was probably one of the best steaks that I have ever eaten, outside grilling it myself. They said it was one of their signature items and I couldn't have agreed more with their assessment. Served with garlic greens beans(great) and salad. Go and enjoy!

On a business trip staying at the hotel next door. Stopped in due to convenience. I was pleased. Beer was cold, french onion soup was great and chicken wings were large and good tasting. I sat at the bar and service was very good! Overall, good experience at a reasonable price.

While in Columbus for business I drove about 20 min. to try the Hickory House out. I like to try new places when I'm out of town. This experience was okay at best. The food was quite average and the prices were just as average or high. The service, however was good, and the wait staff friendly. There is no... More

This is my favorite "special" restaurant! This is where we spend every Anniversary and my Birthday and anytime I can in between! The Porterhouse is my favorite. Tender, juicy and a very unique taste. Best ever! Onion Straws...nobody else can duplicate! Love this place!

Without a doubt the best baby back ribs in Columbus. This classic meat-and-potatoes joint, decorated in a throwback wagon wheel motif, is always busy, so try to get here early or you'll have a wait. The onion straws appetizer and a cold beer are a great way to start the meal, although they could offer a few more interesting draft... More

Love their ribs and fish and chips and I don't like the slaw at most restaurants but it's pretty good here. It seems as if they must train their wait staff really good because we have never in all the years we have been coming here had a bad experience. As long as they keep up the great food and... More

This restaurant has long been our favorite place for ribs and steak. We dined there over the weekend and found them to be crowded but the service was still excellent. I ordered a half slab of ribs and my wife had the sirloin steak which was excellent. My ribs lacked flavor as though they were not smoked. Their great barbecue... More

The best thing about this restaurant was my waitress who was very attentive. The restaurant was close to my hotel and recommended. My food arrived within 10 minutes of ordering. I had crabcakes, beer battered mushrooms, a side of apple sauce and peach pie. The mushrooms were hard as a rock and appears to be microwaved. The applesauce cane put... More
