Service was great. Food was ok. The steak was dry and the entire dish needed more seasoning.
Quality food at a reasonable price. Decadent desserts. No better in the Metcalfe area.
Small town rural Ontario does not always have a vast selection of dining choices. I wanted to surprise my daughter for her birthday and take her to a nice casual place for lunch. I found Hickories by accident while searching for restaurants in the Metcalfe area. The menu looked interesting and the golf course location was not too far from her home.
We opted to sit in the patio/porch area near the big oak tree. We were promptly greeted and ordered drinks before our menu selection.
As an appetizer the Wonton Crunchies Duo were an excellent choice - however I found the price a little steep. The Asian coriander pork stuffed crunchies were excellent; the buffalo chicken ones were forgettable.
My main meal selection was Roast beef "au jus" with a garden salad. It was pretty good but the beef could have been sliced a little thinner. My daughter chose the Pulled Pork Sammie with a garden salad and she said it was excellent.
As a nice surprise after our meal, our server brought us a duo of cakes for dessert: A delicious carrot cake with creamy icing and a chocolate cake; both were complimentary from Hickories and a thoughtful gesture on the part of the restaurant.
I would definitely go back again; maybe to try breakfast/brunch next time.
