Great steaks, good waitstaff. Nice beer selection. Alternative to steak is possible, one of us had crabcakes and they were delicious. We walked there from our hotel.

Had dinner in the bar. The restaurant portion is dated. The bar had small two person elevated booths which proved to be very comfortable. The music was a very new nice volume level playing XM channel. The food was good, I have had better. I had the brisket sandwich with onion straws. Good portion of straws and very good. The... More

We eat here about once a month. I particularly love their rice. The bread is warm and tasty. Prices seem a bit high. I usually order the broiled haddock which is always good.

Heard really good things about Hickory House and tried the Gahanna location rather than the closer Reynoldsburg location based on the reviews. There were a group of four of us and we arrived just after 5pm. It was already quite busy but we were seated promptly. Our waitress was on top of it! My dad had prime rib, my husband... More

Famous rib lunch special with slaw and fries or other side. Service was great. Out of the way from interstate freeway but worth the drive.

Dropped in to this restaurant when my flight had a 3 hour delay and it's close to CMH. I had the shrimp appetizer, very tasty nice size shrimp but only 4 shrimp. For dinner I had the prime rib. Excellent tasting. I ordered rare and actually got rare too. Probably the best tasting prime rib I have had in a... More

I went there for my birthday dinner. It was my first time there. My daughter suggested that I try the ribs and I did. We ate at 4pm so they weren't extremely busy. We had great service and the food was awesome! Would definitely visit there again!
