If you like the white meat chicken - order the chicken strips - they are like a boneless chicken Breast they are so big OMG Waitstaff is a little stuff for my taste but the food is amazing Full bar with microbrewery beer - not my thing but totally impressed with the selection and presentation. Oysters are frickin huge and... More

Menu same since last visit (long time ago). I had the oyster caesar salad. Good but bit into some shell. Husband had fish and chips. Fish a little "fishy", chips good. Friend had steak and crab cakes. No complaints from him. Beer good as always. Pretty good experience. Will go back eventually.

Food was reasonably priced. I ordered a house salad and was pleasantly surprised by the portion size and freshness. Husband had the onsite brewed beer flights.. Super stout flavor. The band that saturday rocked! Wish we couldve stayed longer :)

Excellent food and beer. Try the pub chips and get a good local beer. Great southern hospitality and killer food.

We were traveling from Advance ,NC to Blowing Rock, NC when we decided to stop off in Hickory. Having not been to Hickory before, we stopped in at the Visitors Center. Jean Pitts was very helpful and explained many options. She recommended the Olde Hickory Tap Room for lunch. The parking is very convenient and close by to other shops.... More

The Tap Room has been a favorite of many for several years. The food is usually very good and the beer selection is first rate with a lot of local brews available. It can get a little cramped on the bar side but if you want more peace you can opt for the restaurant side. Sandwiches are always good and... More

We had a good experience. Great food. Unique menu. We really enjoyed the beer list. There were four of us, and we all got different beers. Although, the beer list was on receipt paper. Nonetheless, great service. They got us in and out!

Thank LuckiePenny
