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!

I live about 3 miles from the Hickory House and pass it twice a day on my way to and from work. The parking lot is always full. That’s a good sign for a restaurant. It is locally owned and operated. They offer a nice selection of Steaks, Ribs, Meatloaf and Sandwiches. The hidden gems on the menu is their... More

We stopped by on a busy evening but were able to find a table quite quickly. Menu was interesting and the choice of drinks excellent. Service was exceptional (we took a small table by the bar - not in the main restaurant) and very attentive by one of the barmen. Would highly recommend definitely one of our best dinner experiences... More

We ate here while in the area for my great niece's swearing in ceremony to the Navy. I had read the ribs were great so I got the rib appetizer. They were very tender, falling-off-the-bone tender! They barbecue flavor was excellent!! Also had onion straws which were very good. The service was excellent and friendly.

Our contact at the restaurant, Kelly, quickly responded to all questions during the planning stage. On the day of the dinner, the servers were pleasant, the food was delicious!. We were allowed to bring in our own dessert, which was... More

Best bang for the buck rubs, and the best tasting ribs! :) Make sure you grab their epic porterhouse steak as well!
