We have been going to Hickory for many years and always loved the food and service. This was the first time we placed a pick up order. Service was great, but the food was only average. Probably won't use pick up service again.

Walking into this place is like walking into a combo bar/restaurant straight from the 70's but with none of the charm. The servers are slow and forgetful and the menu is tired. If you want a very one dimensional experience with nothing but overpriced dry...More

Just left there... Not many GF options. Neither the seasoning or BBQ is GF. The shrimp cocktail was good. They said the cabbage rolls are GF. Order steaks or burgers with no seasoning or buns.
