An all time favourite! Never had a bad meal here, staff are always friendly and the menu is quite varied with old favourites i.e.ceasar salad, burgers, fish and chips - but also some Mexican food, curries and many more. Lovely Nederburg wine by the glass from South Africa. Just love their Friday buffets as well as the Tuesday special menu in the evening. Nothing better than to sit on the patio appreciating the beautiful sunset.

Amazing building in the middle of the links.
Food and service are OK but should be higher level for that location and environment.

I've been to Hickory's many times over the years and always seem to leave disappointed. The golf course is amazing and the views from the club house and restaurant are amazing, but that is all you get. The restaurant menu is large and there are many selections that sound great, but when served it has always been a disappointment.

We recently went for breakfast/ lunch and ordered an all day breakfast and fish and chips. Fish was ok, but not for 85 AED. We sent the breakfast back 3 times because the eggs were not prepared properly...how hard is it to make eggs over easy? After the 3rd attempt we just paid the bill.

The other huge issue is the service...staff seem unmotivated and completely uninterested in providing any type of real service. We were very disappointed and will probably never go back for food. It is a shame, because the place could be great!

Is a place to play a great round of golf and then have some over priced drinks on the terrace, but that is it.

Had a really nice breakfast at the Yas links golf club after cycling around Yas island. Really nice breakfast well presented and with good service. Ideal location sitting outside with a view over the mangroves.

The view of sunset at Hickorys is great if sat outside on the patio.
However, the service and quality of food is extremely disappointing.
It took ten minutes to order drinks and then another ten minutes till they arrived. I ordered a Schnitzel which came out burnt at the edges and so dry I couldn't actually eat it.
The place wasn't busy, but took 20 minutes to get the bill.
Go for a drink and watch the sunset, but get your drink from the bar first!
