Went to the Hickory House last Saturday night and were able to get right in, service was very good and quality of was very good as well. The waitress seemed like she wanted to give us great service.

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!!

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
