Went here for a group business dinner and overall was good. The service was very good and food was pretty good as well. Nothing special about the place really, pub atmosphere but overall a good experience.

Had lunch at Hickory Tavern. Seated promptly, but restaurant is very cramped and uncomfortable, tables very close together. Décor was not good. It's a sports bar, but it is a sports bar at the Metropolitan, so we assumed it would be a bit nicer. Clean...More

The Hickory Tavern is the perfect place for a business lunch, after work happy hour, or to go watch any game! Bring the kids or just have a girl's night out. Whatever the occasion, the Hickory Tavern is always the perfect destination! The preferred game day location of the Carolina Panthers!
