There are TVs every where, this would be a great place to catch a game. There is an outdoor patio that looked awesome.

They have very little parking but the whole Vista area is like that. Super close to all the Vista hotels no driving required. They open the door for us coming in and leaving. Service with a smile. Our waitress Forrest was great. I don't recall...More

The Hickory Tavern is the perfect place for a business lunch, after work happy hour, or to go watch any game! Bring the kids or just have a girl's night out. Whatever the occasion, the Hickory Tavern is always the perfect destination! The preferred game day location of the Carolina Panthers!
