Striking the right atmosphere between a wide open sports everywhere all the time, bring your friends and your family too and some delicious bar food, this place was a lot of fun. Went last night to watch a great rivalry as NC outslasted Duke in a neck and neck game that has the place rocking. Duke fans sitting next to... More

Thank you for the awesome review and feedback. We have a HUGE love for the game and we're glad we were able to share that passion with you on Saturday! The Smokehouse burger is one of my favorites too and you should definitely try our El Diablo. It's fantastic if you like pickled jalapenos. Please come back and see us... More

Dining alone and wanting to keep it simple. Standard "pub" menu. Nice list of beer, so went with a local option, and a Smokehouse burger. Burger was delicious, service very quick. Just what you'd want from your local tavern. Would return.

Arrived after golf. Beer was cold. Service was very good. Food was very good and out quickly. All in all, a good place to catch up on the ball games on the 20 TV's and eat good food.

We always enjoy eating at Hickory Tavern when in the area. They have much more than "bar food". I had the Baja fish tacos which were excellent. The crab dip is also a favorite of ours. Their prices are reasonable and they have a good selection of craft beer. The only downside is the open seating near the bar where... More

Overall an excellent, casual restaurant. Great food, often with a unique flare (try the honey mustard bacon dressing). Pay attention to the daily specials for the best deals.

The Hickory Tavern is so much more than just a sports bar. Their food is always delicious and fresh. Take out orders via the bar are always prompt and I've never had an error with my meals. The grilled pimento cheese on sourdough is the best I have ever had. Add a side of tavern chips and you'll be in... More

We had a girls lunch in honor of a friend returning to town & we got the private room up front and it was ah-mazing. While our waitress was not dedicated to our table, she made us feel like she was (Lily was her name I think). The food was wonderful and we had a great time. This is really... More

I needed a place to watch the SEC Championship game, Roll Tide, and The Hickory Tavern was next to the hotel where I was staying. Got a seat at the bar right in front of a tv and parked it there for the entire game. Service was great, beer was cold, and the wings where tasty. That combination makes it... More
