    My boyfriend and I ate here for Valentine’s Day. It was a set menu, and every course was absolutely phenomenal! The venue was gorgeous and the service was excellent. It was our first time dining here, and we will absolutely be back.

    I reserved a table for Valentines Day, They had an option to choose a preset meal, which I declined and chose a standard reservation. We wouldn't eat 90% of the preplaned meal. I show up and we're seated with the preplanned meal as our only option. They refused to serve us anything else. So at 8pm on Valentines we have to go find somewhere else to eat....

    The over all experience was good. We order 2 chicken Milanese we only received 1 and 2 plates. Not real sure about what happened there? The waiter was kind and met our needs while dining. Not sure if the food was worth the price?

    The drive in, along the tree lit avenue was beautiful. The food was very good and we enjoyed the decor and design. However, there was a long wait between the first and second course, and there seemed to be a casualness and lack of decorum (employees in sweatshirts, dancing at the open kitchen), which didn’t match the atmosphere we expected at a high end restaurant. Nonetheless, we will return.

    Limited options compared to what we expected. Buffet was almost empty and cold when we got food; slowly restocked. When restocked we weren’t impressed. Slow service even though the seating area wasn’t busy.

    Our server, Grace, was terrific. We asked for advice on the cocktails and she first asked some questions then made some suggestions - the cocktails were spot on and very fun. The food was delicious. The chocolate peanut butter cake was amazing, but huge - fortunately they offered a to-go box and our son enjoyed it the next day! We will definitely recommend Hickory!

    I ordered the Poached Pear salad which was OK. The walnuts were the best part and the pears were pretty good. The greens didn't feel like they complimented the other ingredients. Then the pork loin. This was delicious. The little bit of mustard seed took it over the top. Truthfully, I would have like more of it. But the dish was so good that I had to force myself to slow down and enjoy it more. I also got the egg creme brulee and a glass of port for dessert. Leah was my server and gave me input when I requested as so which dishes to order. She was attentive and friendly. This was a great way to end my vacation in Southwestern Virginia.

    From the time we walked in to the time we left, we were treated like special guests. The door was opened when we arrived and shown down the beautiful staircase to the restaurant below. Our table for 5 was set and ready for us (we had made reservations on open table). We were given a sample of a wine by glass selection before we decided on the full glass. Emily was our waitress and took great care of us! She gave us descriptions of the menu items and was very attentive to us the entire time. She didn't rush us...we were a group of 5 ladies...and she happily boxed up our leftovers. We didn't want to leave anything because it was ALL so delicious!!! Chef Dewey (Andrew Stafford) came out to our table and explained some of his dishes. You need to come try them!! His culinary skills are impressive to say the least!! The food is prepared on open coals and really neat to see. This restaurant is a hidden gem in the area and I highly recommend going sooner than later!! I have been several times now, but it was the first time for the rest of my group. They all said they want to go back. Great job Hickory....keep up the great work!!

    Dinner with a party of six. Spared no expense on drinks, appetizers and dinner and in short, I would do the same thing weekly if I could afford it. Every aspect on the evening was wonderful. Ally attended to our every request, answered our questions and was spot-on on her recommendations. It was a very nice evening.

    Well for starters, Brianna provided excellent service and was just a joy to be around!! Our Thanksgiving lunch was exactly as expected and what we wanted... Simple and tasty, in a fine dining atmosphere. The apple crisp dessert with ice cream just hit the spot! Special cocktail of the day was very delicious! We enjoyed the view of the vineyard through the windows of the bar/lounge area. Highly recommend a visit to Hickory 🦃🍁

    Very disappointed overall… this was our second visit and the first time was nice; however, this time the food portions on everything but the steak dinner and the carrot appetizer were small and clearly overpriced. The service and the wine were good. In the Bristol, Virginia area Brooklyn Grill and Union 41 are better options.
