This vintage home serves some of the best "made from scratch" meals in Hickory. Everything is made to order, served hot and tastes great. In addition, Matt Parker is very knowledgeable and has one of the best wine collections anywhere. Be sure to order the profiterole's for desert… You will not be disappointed.

Have made multiple visits. Actually, intend to dine there tonight with our party of four or five. The house is an old residence from many decades past. It has quiet charm. The menu is pretty good, although it varies little over time. Few desserts, but they are good. Service has always been fine. Over the years, since the early 1980s,... More

Our server was delightful and professional. The ambiance was intimate, which was perfect because it was Valentines day. Being valentines day they offered a limited menu... More

My husband and I LOVE the Vintage House. The food is excellent, and the wine list fabulous! Matt Parker serves truly gourmet options at a very affordable price. Have never, ever had a bad meal here! If there were a rating beyond Excellent, the Vintage House would get it!

My wife Love's the duck and pasta she recently got grits with shrimp and sausage and it was amazing. My wife Loves the key lime cheesecake. She says it's the best cheesecake she has ever... More

Elegant ambiance with outstanding food. The salmon is worth the drive from anywhere. Great wine selection. If dining as a couple , try to get the booth. Very romantic and very private.
