Ate there while passing through on vacation. My wife lived in Hickory for 10 years in the 90’s and liked this place. It was ok but it was not as good as we expected. I’d just as soon go to a chain. I’d be happier...More

I go here often and always get the Chicken Salad Surprise and sauteed vegetables. The chicken salad is served in a bread bowl topped with tomato slices and melted cheese. It is absolutely delicious! Great sweet tea, too!

We were definitely impressed with the newer location and more impressed with the food. We finally found a Hickory Restaurant that doesn't overcook the seafood. This is our second time ordering the Blackened Salmon and it was delicious and cooked perfectly. We live 40 minutes...More

We enjoyed our evening out at Backstreets last night. We went earlier (5:45) yet still had a 20 minute wait. When we left around 8:15 there was still a nice wait for tables. This just shows the popularity of the restaurant. Our food was plentiful...More

It would be tricky. The bar area isn't huge and the dining area is tight. Don't know where they'd set you up. Plus, the acoustics can be a little weird. You can hear everyone's conversation, especially in the very back room.
