A staple of downtown Hickory, the Olde Hickory Tap Room is a great place for lunch or dinner, for business or pleasure. Tuna entree is great cooked (or not) to perfection. Pub chips are always a good choice.

I always bring my friends here if they have not eaten before. My favorite place for fish and Chips. Rubens and burgers are great here also. Cajun shrimp are the best deal. Great value for the money.

You can see all the tankards hanging on the wall that the locals love this place. You can purchase a tankard and use it each time you visit. The restaurant is our favorite burger place and the pub chips are great with ranch or pub cheese. Service is generally very good but can get sluggish on busy nights. For the... More

They are always my first choice in Hickory. Great atmosphere, some shops, great service and in my opinion awesome food. The pub chips with ranch are great. I would highly recommend for lunch or dinner.

Although we dine there quite often throughout year, it is a tradition to dine on Christmas Eve after candlelight service. Great venue with wonderful menu choices and live music on selected nights mostly Sundays

We were in Hickory visiting our son on a Sunday night and wanted to try a local restaurant. Imagine our surprise when we arrived at the Tap Room and 5-piece jazz band was playing in the bar area! Seems as it's a regular thing on Sunday evenings. Lucky us! We enjoyed sampling the various Old Hickory brews and our meal... More
