Old Hickory House is one of the best places to find a hearty breakfast or good ribs. It's about time that the owners do a little remodeling. For instance, seats are scared, cushions fall off, and booths have seen their better days. Many of the...More

Great customer service! Fresh food! You will get your money’s worth when ordering any of their breakfast plates. They have good HUGE homemade biscuits & yummy HUGE pancakes! Did not care for the taste of their smoked bacon; however, my friends liked it.

I’ve been eating here for 20 years and I still can’t get over how good the Brunswick stew is. The service is polite and the food is timely and delicious. A bit tucked away. The meat is outstanding.

I grew up in Atlanta and on Old Hickory House so every year when I go home Christmas, this is a must have. The pulled pork, ribs, squash casserole, cobbler are my favs; however everything they make is fantastic! Also, if you love Brunswick stew,...More

Took home a carryout meal of vegetables and a cobbler. Normally, I eat inside the restaurant. On the take-outs the vegetables are placed in individual plastic cups, and the cobbler in pre-packed containers. Somehow, the servings were not as tasty and were small to boot....More

I drove 3 1/2 hours just to eat lunch here. The best ketchup based BBQ in the South. Great service, great sweet, fat french fries, and good company. If you come in on Sunday afternoon, plan to wait for a table, but it will be...More

We live the Hickory House breakfast and were just there Saturday. It’s an old restaurant and building, so don’t expect anything fancy. It’s just good food and ok coffee (not strong). I normally get an egg, bacon, grits and toast. Good
