“Always Fresh and Delicious!”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

Josh's is one of the best restaurant's in Hickory. The food is always very good. Josh is a creative chef. He uses fresh ingredients and can easily accommodate dietary restrictions. It's a small place so be sure to make a reservation. Great location on Union Square!

Josh's is either first or second for upscale dining in Hickory. Well prepared food and great service. Excellent value.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

This is my favorite place for a special occasion like an anniversary or birthday. The chef is wonderfully creative, the service is excellent, and the atmosphere is intimate and quiet. I strongly recommend their Cosmopolitan.

“Poor service, unedible food, and bland”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

Hoping to try something new during our annual visit to Hickory. This restaurant had only one other couple in it when we dined. The waitress didn't know the menu or their bar selection. Our appetizers were ok but the fried green tomatos were so raw we couldn't even chew through them. Caesar salad had little flavor, chicken only made it worth saving. My braised pork was done well though. The 2 sides I picked jambalaya and potatoes au gratin were a huge dissappointment. I paid with cash and it took 18 minutes (i counted)and me finally approaching the waitress to get my change. Overall if you want the chef staring at you uncomfortably while getting bad service this place is for you.

“Best in Hickory and an great brunch”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

Just finished Sunday Brunch with my family. Great restaurant and good value. I don't mind spending money on good food. You can sit outside in warm weather. Dishes like barbecued shrimp are not at all what you would expect but are great. One of my world traveler friends said that is was one of the best meals he has ever eaten.
