Found this place through my app Untapped while searching for a very good local IPA. Hickory Tavern had it on tap. They also had numerous large TV screens to watch Sunday night football. It is definitely a restaurant and not just a bar though. The service was pretty good. Food was tasty - we tried the BBQ wings and BBQ... More

Family dinner. Two with chicken fingers made to taste like wings; one turkey wrap and a build your own salad. Excellent ! Choice of greens and 6 items from a very wide selection of items. All were very fresh and tasty. Added meat topping it off with a good choice to get my protein.

Took the family for dinner while we were in town, looked promising - steaks, oysters etc. it's basically a sports bar, food is at that level. Nachos were cold, ribeye tasted like burned fat, salads were meh, sandwiches are your best bet. Beer was cold and service was friendly.

The service was very slow. Took about 15 minutes to get a server to come to the table outside and then took over 30 minutes to get nachos!The chicken nachos was 90% chips and if 5% was chicken you couldn't even taste it. The other 5% was sour cream, BBQ sauce and cilantro/chives. Made comment to server and she said... More

We are regulars here and love the food! Overall this is our favorite place to eat. Great burgers, grilled salmon, and sandwiches. The service is good too. I wouldn't listen to the negative comments on here, because we have been over a dozen times and the food was good each time.

I came here on a Friday night with coworkers. It was crowded. It took forever to order a drink, then longer to order food, to get the bill, and finally be able to leave. I ordered a burger with fries and what came was a burger with rice. At that point it wasn't worth the wait to get the fries.... More

Visit here every month or so. The food is good along with the service. Prices are about average for this type of restaurant/sports bar. Service is good and the staff is friendly.
