Excellent food, friendly, helpful staff. Had slight problem with order, the manager came straight over and apologised, and reduced the bill. Puddings delicious! Would definitely eat there again.

My mates suggested this, got there the place smelt wounderful, of smoke and BBQ, I had the seafood gumbo, and it was spicy, just the way I liked it, and ribs were delicious, and melted in your mouth, for dessert I also had the American waffle and that was great and I decide to be greedy along with my mate...

As with any branch of hickory's you get the customary fantastic food. I had the beef brisket which was excellent but I'd happily eat anything on the menu. Staff were very helpful and made some good recommendations, the restaurant is in a nice setting down by the river. Great place to go and escape the veganism movement that's trying to... More

Celebrating our wedding anniversary we booked a table at hickories. Met at reception by a very pleasant lady, who advised our table wasn't ready, (we were early) but we could have a drink at the bar. Within 10 minutes we were shown to our table, were balloons and a happy anniversary message were on the table. We also received a... More

We held our triathlon club quiz night in the members area of hickories. From booking through the night the level of service we received was exceptional. Everyone ordered their food at different times, yet all the food was delivered swiftly and everyone was complementing on how great it was. I've been to hickories to eat with friends before too and...

Description
Hickory’s Smokehouse is Chester’s authentic American BBQ. Here you can enjoy a traditional style of cooking that has its roots in the US, but that we think deserves to be just as popular over here.
Our menu offers two styles of BBQ. The southern-style ‘Smoker’ BBQ uses slow, wood-fired cooking in our specially imported American smoker oven. The northern-style ‘Yankee’ BBQ is cooked over sizzling hot coals. Both styles create unbelievably tender, delicious meat and fish.
