The service was terrible. Couldn’t get drinks had to stop other wait staff to retrieve our drinks from the bar that we could clearly see sitting there. Took 40 min to get food and one of our party did not get their food. We were...More

Although the burgers were tasty, it shouldn't take 40 minutes to get your food. So, I would suggest to bypass this place after 9 pm as diners have already ate and left. Kitchen isn't in a hurry to restart menu items. But, the menu is...More

I personally think Hickory Tavern is underrated. Overall, the food is good-Burgers are fantastic. PowPow Shrimp is delicious, but my family and friends literally request Hickory Tavern every time they visit just for the BBQ Chicken Nachos! Sit outside if you want a quieter atmosphere....More

It was relatively quiet the night we went so service was prompt. I ordered the Reuben sandwich with a side of brussel sprouts. The sandwich was good, and the brussel sprouts were really good!

Stopped by for dinner during the .75 cent wing night special. Ordered hot wings and the chared wings in the carribean flavor meal was ok with great service.

The French dip meat was fatty and the tater tots were too greasy. The service was below par as we ordered home made chips that came after we had finished the meal. Probably wouldn't return since there are so many options in the area.

I was very unimpressed with the Hickory Tavern. It's a derivative of TGIF or Chilli's without the cache of those brands.
