We had it all...

Four of us from three states met for lunch here before we all split off and went our separate ways. Thank goodness we got there just before the lunch crunch because the place filled up fast. If you're on a time constraint, you might want to call ahead to make sure they'll have a table for you... read more

The food at Hickory House is always fantastic! The Hickory burger is the best burger I've ever had. And, the fresh bread ..... Definitely a place to eat when in the Columbus area.

Nice casual atmosphere restaurant. Be prepared, if ordering the full rack of ribs, to have it 'hang over' the plate. Ribs were great, with just the right amount of BBQ sauce so as not to get 'messy'.

The location is in an odd spot so we always forget that it is there. We went for the last time last night and loved it! It was crowded but we were seated right away. The ribs and filet are amazing!!! The chicken salad was great too! Very clean and the staff are friendly. The food is decently priced too!!

Let me start off by saying (without judgement or bias) that the Hickory House is more appropriately catered to a certain baby boomer generation than that of young professionals. That being said, we all had an ok dining experience. The interior decor is very "log cabin", and to agree with other reviews, it is a bit dark. That never seems... More

You're in the COLUMBUS area! Go to one of the other thousands of places and you'll be better pleased. Went here for lunch based on the fantastic reviews we saw everywhere for a great BBQ joint... walked in to a dimly lit dining room with only two other tables. Service was miserable. We asked what there was to drink and... More

Next door to the Candlewood Suites. Comfortable relaxed atmosphere. No wait for bar seating when I was there. Staff was overwhelmed, but still friendly and helpful. Food was good, served quickly, and reasonably priced. Drink prices were a little higher than I expected, but not out of line. I will be back.

Ribs is the specialty, of course. I like that there are different portions to order, in the ribs and other dishes. I have been here 2-3 times and have tried ribs, fish, salad and appetizers. The sauce was ok, the rest of my party liked it more than I did. There is a lot of wood in the decor. The... More

I went to the Hickory House on a business lunch with some colleagues and enjoyed my visit. Our server was quiet but very attentive and polite. I ordered the daily special which was a black and bleu salad. It had a generous serving of tender sliced steak cooked to a perfect medium rare, lots of bleu cheese, crispy crutons, and... More
