We walked in for dinner and the hostess just stared at us. We had to say two please. She didn't ask where we would like to sit. She put us at a table, we asked if we could please have a booth. She said No! None was available ,as we were looking at a empty booth. So we just sat... More

Stopped in for a beer and a snack. Prices are very reasonable and beer selection is excellent. We had the pub chips and a small pizza. Everything was great.

The Tap Room is my go-to for a nice lunch when in Hickory on business. Although I don't enjoy beer, they have an amazing number of beers on tap and an extensive beer menu, including local and small breweries. You can't do better than their homemade potato chips. Try the hot blue cheese dip! There's a nice menu and I... More

The servive was very good and the food came quickly. The homemade chips were delicious with either the ranch dip or beer cheese. I had the fish and chips which was enough food for two. If you are looking for a good pub, you won't be disappointed.

My wife and I had traveled to the Hart Square Village Festival near Hickory (great travel destination, BTW) - we hadn't been in the area before so we hit downtown Hickory and looked for a nice place to eat a late lunch. The Olde Hickory Tap Room fit the bill perfectly. A welcoming atmosphere, bright, nice layout and an excellent... More

The good part: service was great. Fast, friendly, and frequent checks to make sure all was ok. We needed more salad dressing and it, and the food, all arrived quickly. Food portions were good. We had sandwiches with salads. Both were good portions and tasty. The bread was not so good. Turkey on sourdough bread - the bread was thin... More

Great staff and beer selection. Food is good and reasonably priced. The owner needs to spend a few thousand on some updates as it is getting run down. Especially in the rest rooms, recovering booth seats etc. I used to take business people in there but would not do that now. Awesome jazz musicians in there every Sunday night at... More

Neat location right in the middle of downtown Hickory. I had the ribs and they were awesome. I would recommend this to anyone and we will definitely be back.

The dimly lit dining room is excellent for romance, and the food is excellent for its price point in both quality and quantity. We also enjoyed the location of the restaurant downtown.

We were on our way to Asheville & Hickory seemed like a good place to stop for lunch. So glad we did. Both my husband & I enjoyed one of their craft beers and we both liked what was recommended by our waitress, Kellie. Kellie also took great care of us & recommend the fish & chips and the Rubin....
