Hickory's is a well known lunch and dinner buffet restaurant, but personally I found its breakfasts the most rewarding experience. Arrive early enough and you can sit on the verandah overlooking the golf course and the creek. There is a good selection of breakfasts on the a la carte menu that will suit all tastes and pockets. As Abu Dhabi... More

We went here at the last minute for a quick bite on the patio. Friday is quite busy so we did not get a chance to sit outside. The food was promptly served and as expected for a pub at a golf club. The staff were pleasant and friendly. I had the fish and chips which were ok. Likely would... More

We spent NYE at Hickory's with family and friends. Setting was great and wish we had tickets to the Coldplay concert because most of the diners were going and getting primed. Food was great, service was better and drinks were free flowing. Definitely recommend for a nice meal and or dining before a concert.

We opted for a late lunch at this venue as the views are really amazing when you sit outside. I ordered the red snapper and my husband ordered the schnitzel. I must add that I regularly eat red snapper at a hotel in town, and it is one of my favourite fish dishes. The fish was overdone, so much so... More

Such a lovely setting for breakfast. Outside terrace looking onto the golf course and mangrove lagoon. Service from Mercy was excellent and friendly. Even had a visit from the resident Duck, who was looking to share our breakfast. Some different menu options rather than just traditional and included gluten free too. Some families there too and even some of the... More

Nice view and nice place. Maybe one of the best in Abu Dhabi. Although, the food was nothing special. The service average and slow.

Went here for a late-arranged Friday brunch with a friend. Although the buffet was small it seemed to contain enough choice to make it worthwhile. The soup was good , the salad selection just enough and the main meat and fish courses too. Add to that the apple crumble and custard and I was happy. They also have Strongbow cider... More

Golf clubhouse food you'd expect - wide range menu from salads, grills, pastas, Asian, healthy/GF dishes. Something to please everyone. Fair pricing on food and alcohol. Service very friendly. Lovely view of the golf course. We come here for a drink and light meal after a round of golf. Very enjoyable.
