The staff at Hickory House made every effort to make our wedding rehearsal dinner at Hickory House a positive experience. Our contact at the restaurant, Kelly, quickly responded to all questions during the planning stage. On the day of the dinner, the servers were pleasant, the food was delicious!. We were allowed to bring in our own dessert, which was... More

Best bang for the buck rubs, and the best tasting ribs! :) Make sure you grab their epic porterhouse steak as well!

Incredible Steak-try the tenderloin. Also, the staff worked really hard to accommodate everyone's diet and preferences.

The restaurant took a lot of winding roads to get to but the food was great. The mashed potatoes & meatloaf reminds me of my grandmothers. The blacked chicken alfredo wasn't blackened but good. The portions are large. Now for the sticky bathroom that makes you wonder how badly you need to go... yikes! The server was great. If it... More

There was hardly anyone on a Wednesday evening. It looks like the restaurant has seen its better days. The decor is more like a lower end steak restaurant chain with no table cloths. Kitchen is not into presentation.

We went to this restaurant because our friends had friends who recommended it highly. While we had plenty to eat, we were somewhat disappointed. My brisket sandwich was tough, a bit fatty and the sauce a bit bland and sweet. My husband had the rueben sandwich and declared it just OK. The best things our party had were the salads,... More

Easily the best most consistent rack of ribs you can get anywhere! The bones can't stay attached to meat! Also have great steaks with an awesome hot loaf of bread served with the drinks!

I had lunch here with a customer last Tuesday. It was not too busy, so we were seated right away. Our food arrived soon after we ordered. We just had a simple lunch, so I really want to return again to try their steak and ribs. What we did order was good.

This place was walking distance to our hotel (Springhill Suites) so we took a short walk and ended up very pleased. The food was good. I had the glazed meatloaf dinner and ate about half of the serving. It was great, but enough for two people. Lots of beer choices and reasonable. The four of us had dinner and three... More
