We were in the area for work and this establishment was just down the street. Decided to give it a try for lunch. Had an excellent spinach and artichoke dip for starters followed by the Lunch Shrimp & Grits and BBQ Chicken Big Baker (potato). Meal was great, service was very good, server was friendly and professional. Would definitely return... More

Service was extremely slow. Arrived at 7:00 and didn't get our food until 8:15. I had the French dip sandwich and it was dry. Using au jus made it better. Friend had tilapia and said it was very good. Don't think I would return there, many other places to try in Pinehurst.

Hickory Tavern is the place we go with friends for a good steak or burger. Sushi appetizer was great. We like eating outside on the covered patio when we can. Lots of TVs so you can watch the latest sports if you want. I go for the food. Brew selection is good as well.

We met a colleague here for lunch and we liked the restaurant. It was easy to talk, the service was very good and the food was good enough. Better than just bar food, but essentially just OK

We had a large group, 18 people, which poses problems for servers etc. Our servers seemed overwhelmed in that it took a long time for our items to be served and I had to repeatedly ask different servers for mine. Once the food arrived, it was good....but, the service was slow and staggered for the group. We are on a... More

We were on a tight schedule for a concert so we stopped in at 4 pm expecting quick service. We got our drinks, but not the food. After 50 minutes of waiting a server noticed our concern. Our food arrived shortly later. Our order had " fallen through the cracks." Great meal, and we will go back, realizing this is... More

I take a foursome to the Pinehurst area of NC several times annually and I stay at the Comfort Inn in Southern Pines. I have been making this journey for 5-6 years now and discovered several years ago that after a round of golf, our group did not want to load up the car and hunt for a place to... More

Greeted so kindly upon arrival and service could not be better. The chicken stuffed baked potato is to die for and huge! Good selection of beer with great specials.

Advertised as a raw bar and grill, this restaurant has no idea what a fresh oyster on the shell looks and tastes like! We sent them back, wings were good and beer was cold, food very mediocre

Striking the right atmosphere between a wide open sports everywhere all the time, bring your friends and your family too and some delicious bar food, this place was a lot of fun. Went last night to watch a great rivalry as NC outslasted Duke in a neck and neck game that has the place rocking. Duke fans sitting next to... More

Thank you for the awesome review and feedback. We have a HUGE love for the game and we're glad we were able to share that passion with you on Saturday! The Smokehouse burger is one of my favorites too and you should definitely try our El Diablo. It's fantastic if you like pickled jalapenos. Please come back and see us... More

The Hickory Tavern is the perfect place for a business lunch, after work happy hour, or to go watch any game! Bring the kids or just have a girl's night out. Whatever the occasion, the Hickory Tavern is always the perfect destination! The preferred game day location of the Carolina Panthers!
