Stumbled across Hickorys whilst walking along the river. Booked a table 24 hours in advance and very excited at the prospect of this American diner. Table booked for 8.15pm, seated at 8.45pm. The customers using the table before us were not asked to vacate by a certain time - hence the delay. We were given complimentary drinks for the inconvenience. Food arrived approx. 9.30pm as the place was heaving and so very loud, you had to shout across the table to be heard. We were in a booth with a flat screen tv - you could change channels but you couldn't hear it even if you had wanted. The food was good quality - typical American but is basic. If you order a steak you get steak and onion rinks - chips/salad is extra and the extras are limited in terms of choice. No mushrooms for example.
The staff were very pleasant and work hard and whilst we did get the complimentary drinks, the fact that we were kept waiting, couldn't hear our friends talk to us across the table, we were slightly disappointed. You can eat in the restaurant rather than the bar area (even though you get a booth), that I am sure would most certainly be quieter.
