Good burgers, lots of TV's for sports viewing. Biggest drawback is noise level when busy, but fun atmosphere

Favorite sports bar in the Southern Pines/Pinehurst area for a burger and a beer. A must do lunch every time we visit the area. Their oysters are quite good as well. Very friendly staff and reasonably priced. Always a good time

Stopped by after dinner for drinks and to watch sports. From the bar, we had a great view of several events including the one we wanted most. Nice drink menu (tried some of the specialty drinks). Good attentive service. Would go back and try the food.

Been here 3 times in 6 months and each time was great. Raw tuna appetizer was delicious, burgers and ribs were really good. Good variety of beer. Artichoke & spinach dip was too small for the price. Brought friends here our third time & will return. Best sports bar/pub in this area.

This place is between 3 and maybe 4 stars. I ate lunch here recently. I have been here before and usually stop by when I'm in town visiting family. They have a good selection of craft beers and I was impressed by the knowledge of the lady behind the bar when it came to describing their various IPA's. The sandwich... More

A great menu, good food and large helpings add up to excellent value. This Sports Tavern is chocked full of TV screens tuned in to various sports. It's a "fun" atmosphere, perfect for a nice meal after a day on the golf course. Check it out!

We haven't been to Hickory Tavern in months but thought it'd be a great option for the night before Thanksgiving. Its a large place so you can usually be seated fairly quickly. There was a wait for the dining room but we were able to sit in the bar area right away (there were 5 in our party). All of... More
