So here's the deal. Great food. Great service. Priced right. Need you know more? Yes ... OK. The mussels were the best, soup (lamb and barley) tasty and not greasy, grilled chicken with artichoke hearts was out of this world. If you are in or near Hickory, NC make sure you get here.

I had eaten here a couple years ago and it was quite good. They serve continental food with a homestyle flair. If you eat indoors, you share 4 sides, outdoors you get 2 apiece. I will first say that The Hickory Hop Fest and Prom Night were going on, so downtown was nuts. We ate outdoors because the place was full. The bacon beignets were great, but the main courses failed to please. My fiance had the lamb skewers and they were fatty and tough. I had a the pork carnitas and they were dry and overcooked. The sides were ok, but nothing special. We may return on a less frantic night, but we may just have a glass of wine and an appetizer.

This place was very good. Atmosphere was nothing to shout about but food was great. They give each table 4 side dishes and every one of them was delish! Dessert was yummy too! Definitely worth a visit if you are in town.

I've been to Josh's several times while visiting Hickory and it's always been a great experience. Josh is CIA graduate and between that and his real world cooking experience he's created a culinary experience in North Carolina that cannot be matched. Hands down, Josh's is the best restaurant in the entire area, nothing else even comes close.

All the dishes and appetizers are very tasty, the portions perfect and the selections outstanding.

I've tried the beef medallions and the lamb skewers and several appetizers ranging from the gnocchi to pork belly - everything was great.

Josh's also offers a very good selection of wines and being that I'm from California I was pleasantly surprised to find so many great California wine offerings on the menu.

Two thumbs up for Josh's on Union Square - if you ever find yourself in Hickory North Carolina, you must try Josh's restaurant.

Been to Josh's several times. Always excellent food and service. Good wines. Go early sit near the front window and people watch.
