We have dined here quite a few times, the food is just fantastic. The ribs are to die for, but even the wings, which I normally don't eat, are some of the best I have ever had, juicy, great flavour. Even the salad is good....More

Booked a dinner at Hickory to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The ribs, chicken wings, roasted potatoes were all fantastic and delicious. The chocolate brownie dessert was divine and a perfect end to our dinner. We will definitely be back and highly recommend Hickory to all.

We were visiting Tamborine and as our son spoke glowingly of the food at Hickory we decided to dine there and were not disappointed. The ribs were really delicious, best eaten with fingers even though they ended up a bit sticky Another favourite was the...More

Feasting to fill your heart. Hickory is a must visit restaurant for dinner from Thursday to Monday from 5pm. Enjoy our amazing full plate dry rubbed whole rack of ribs, succulent maple chilli chicken wings, our Spring salads, rosemary real potatoes and decadent desserts. We also proudly pour local craft beers, made right here on Tamborine Mountain (Fortitude Brewery), with Fortitude Drifter Endless Summer Ale (Taste like Pacific Ale), Fortitude Ginger Beer (An amazing thirst quencher), Fortitude Interceptor Pale Ale (An aggressive American pale ale) and currently our special batch beer is Green Beacon WindJammer IPA (Rotated regularly... ask our staff). Cocktails and mixology are also our thang, so be sure to check our seasonal (& Hickory classic) drink mixes. See those barrels hanging on the wall... that's right, they hold our house aged rum. It's delicious. Sip some on the rocks! Enjoy your night (or lunch) with us - we'll make your Mountain trip complete.
