I visit this restaurant one time each year when I am in Pinehurst for business. There is always a good crowd here, but I have never had to wait for a table.

On lunch from an educational speaking when my group suggested this place. I know it always seems popular so I looked forward to it. Well.... It took forever to get food. We all ordered simply too. 7 of us. Resturant was not crowded either. Food was not warm when I finally got it nor was it tasty. It may be... More

This is one of many sports bars in the area. It's popular with the visiting golfers. The sandwiches are good. Not my favoret place if your looking for dinner as they lean towards Burgers and sandwiches and chicken wings. Then have an interesting salad called build your own for $10. You build it by picking 6 items to place on... More

Go on a Saturday night and you'll find the place packed with people, slow and impersonal service, loud and very average food. The bartenders lack the interpersonal skills to work in the hospitality industry. It isn't enough to just put a glass of beer on the bar. Smile and talk to your customers. If you want to be alone in... More

We ate there twice for lunch while my father had triple-bypass surgery. Ordered different appetizers (oysters, pretzels, nachos etc) and enjoyed them. Good prompt friendly service, not so crowded and good value for your money.

A big bunch of us, 28, stopped in for dinner (with reservations). Service was attentive for such a large group. Typical sports bar type food choices, though one of us had a very tasty NY strip steak. My Buffalo Chicken sandwich was very good bit the tater tots, yes - tater tots, were not very hot or "well done" as... More

Visited on Saturday evening, busy spot, but wait time more than acceptable. Pleasant service (Holly) and pretty good menu variety. Lots of TVs for watching your favourite game. Try the chili, very good!

Without a doubt this is my fave HT. I've dined ( and drank ) at many of their outlets however there is something about this one the others just don't have. HT is pricey so for me to give a favorable review the food best be good and the service exceptional.

Twelve of us ate at the Hickory Tavern on Saturday and the experience was not good. Three of our table ordered chili as an appetizer and it arrived cold. The entrees were fair a best, and for those that ordered the steamed shrimp felt like the shrimp were cooked on Tuesday, very tough. The service was poor but it was... More
