I really enjoy this restaurant, its has a relaxed atmosphere with plenty of sports on, and a casual dress code, however the food is a step above. The servers and management were very courteous while I was there, making the visit very enjoyable. I have been there several times, and plan to return several more in the future.

We stayed next door at the Comfort Inn and walked to the Hickory Tavern for a great meal with friends.

We had a fabulous time at this establishment. The food, drink, and service was awesome! My daughter and her husband live in this area and have been here before. It was my first time, and I must say the southern hospitality shows here!

Went on a Tuesday night with the intent of getting "All You Can Eat Crab Legs". At $34.95, I couldn't pull the trigger. Thankfully the menu was awesome, and we had no difficulty finding a good meal. Because it was crowded, Rex served us. Rex was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. My only complaint was that the food took a little... More

I was surprised by the quality of the food for what is essentially a sports bar grill. I had the Philly cheesesteak and it was impeccable, probably the finest south of philly. My friend had the wings and said they were spectacular. The chips and salsa were great, a real chipotle salsa. The service was great. The decor is nothing... More

I simply LOVE this restaurant! There are tons of beers to choose from, both craft and domestic, and many are on draft. To make life easier on diners, they even have a beer list, something I always appreciate in a restaurant with a large drink menu. The food is also delightful! I always order a basic Tavern burger with sweet... More

If you have a family or large group this is an excellent choice. While it is easily described as a "sports bar," the selection of food is impressive and the atmosphere is still fine for a family. If you have a group with diverse tastes looking for a post round meal, then this is an excellent choice. Everything from Steak,... More

Large sports bar with TV’s everywhere and lots of folks enjoying the games on a Sunday night. Big bar area and an even larger dining room and an outdoor patio (would have been nice to sit there but some folks had reserved it for a meeting). Also a separate indoor room that was full of NHL fans. Huge selection of... More

I'm still in awe of this meal. I had the "chicken fried chicken" with mashed potatoes and collards. Simple meal yet every bite was as good as the first. The collards must have been prepared by a warlock. I still cannot figure out what they put in them to make them so good. I have been through culinary school and... More

The Hickory Tavern is the perfect place for a business lunch, after work happy hour, or to go watch any game! Bring the kids or just have a girl's night out. Whatever the occasion, the Hickory Tavern is always the perfect destination! The preferred game day location of the Carolina Panthers!
