The atmosphere is log-cabin-like, with a nice fireplace and everything. It definitely is an old place. The service was great. I ordered their unique grilled cheese, which was 3 kinds of cheese, water chestnuts, and green olives. Crazy, right? It was SO good. I thought I would get the olives on the side, but I went for it and it... More

This is a great place. It's in an old log building, so it has wonderful funky old ambience. The menu has something for everyone. Food is nicely prepared. The owners have a pizza place across the street in an old Victorian house. You can get pizza at the Hickory from there too. We saw lots of people coming in for... More

This place is so popular, prepare to wait... In the bar. There is no other space. We tried a few of the favorites. The spicy chili was good. The chicken wings were good. The pulled pork and ribs were even a better choice. The pasta dishes ...meh. The wait staff was friendly and we enjoyed quick service.

I have been to every restaurant in Springfield you will not find a better steak than the ribeye @ Hickory. Yes the place is dated and the staff does not wear uniforms, but who cares when the food is great. They have a huge menu so there's something everyone. Forget the chains and try a local small business. Oh yeah... More

Their pizza with whole wheat crust is the best pizza around. Appetizers and other meals are good as well, but the pizza is what you need to try.

The place itself is dirty. They have odd business hours so you don't know when they are open or not. It's very dark and has a smoky fill that just hangs in the air. The employees were very slow and didn't care on way or another about the custmers. It took forever to get our food, which was not good.... More

Highly recommend the whole wheat crust pizza with sour cream. Also, the BBQ pork potato skins are like no other.

Small and a bit crowded, rustic, a little noisy due to close tables. Five of us all had different meals, and all of the food was excellent. The steaks were all cooked as ordered and the vegetables were steamed just to the right tenderness. The mashed potatoes had the texture and taste of real potatoes and not "boxed". The waitress...
