We have dined there several times and always been very happy with the food and service. A bit noisy, but a lot of places are like that now.

Our meal and service was outstanding on a recent Sunday afternoon!! I had the Hickory Seafood Pasta and my wife had crab cakes. Both meals were better than what we have had at more expensive restaurants in the area. We would highly recommend this restaurant to those who like seafood!!

We had an excellent time at The Hickory Lodge on 6/23/19 as a belated Father's Day celebration. I'm a huge fan of the lodge/outdoorsy theme, which also carries over to the menu. Service was excellent, and drinks are brought out in pitchers vice small cups, so more fluid is brought at once (and needs to be refilled less often). Some highly recommended menu items include the prime rib, crab cake, and a surf & turf combo (steak plus crab cake). Will be returning in the future!

Went for prime rib Thursday. I have gone 4 times in past and it was excellent. This time the meat was great but Demi glacé was sub par which ruined it for me. Usually it is also excellent. My wife’s wrap was excellent.

The Hickory Lodge is a fun rustic-style restaurant that's an absolute neighborhood gem. Decor both inside & out resembles a forest cabin, with indoor & outdoor seating options as well as a nice bar area. Live music & entertainment on some nights. Awesome beer\wine\liquor selections. Great waitstaff - always friendly, warm, and helpful. Menu is full of both hearty comfort food and unique entrees - absolutely everything is recommended - all items we have ordered have been cooked to perfection and is stunningly delicious. Definitely try any of the wings, chilies, or BBQ. And it's all moderately priced for what you get. This is a place you will not want to miss out on. A+++++

Server was great. Seated promptly after entering. Food was good but the prime rib this time had lots of fat. Normally the cut is not as fat. Other food was great.

My Mom,Dad and Husband went for dinner. The waitress was really nice and very attentive. Unfortunately the food basically all came out at the same time. That is one of my biggest pet peeves. The food was good as it typically is but it kinda got cold as we were still having our soups and salads. I will say this is the first time this happened to us here so maybe just a fluke.

Even though the servers were lovely and accommodating, the live music was too loud and the food was a little bit to be desired. Not a fan.

I enjoy food. I don’t enjoy the live music. It’s way to loud while having dinner. Can’t talk to people at table. If it was just a bar scene might be different. Even people at bar seem not to be paying attention to the live music either. Everyone just tells to talk with each other. Dancing and drinking and loud music go together. Dinner with friends isn’t when this music is wanted. My opinion.

Great place to gather for friends and family- good food, reasonable prices, cute ambiance! It was a bit busier and noisier than I had thought for a weeknight- but that is a credit to the popularity of the restaurant!

It was a fairly quiet evening and the rustic ambience is really nice. Service was good. Rockfish bites were terrific and our burgers very good. Fun drink menu with emphasis on rum drinks. Only comment is the need for better table clearing and cleaning between customers. It looked quickly done with a casual swipe of the top leaving too many crumbs and trash under the table. Overall good place to go.

The food was delicious especially the rockfish appetizers. The live music and then DJ played all types of music. We sat on the outside patio which was perfect to have conversations and drinks. Joey the Manager and Aaron our waiter checked on us all the time to ensure our evening was running smooth which it was all night. Highly recommend.

My family adores The Lodge! We crave their rockfish bites, crabby fries, grilled romaine salad...we discover a new favorite every time we visit. Beverages are served in small pitchers (LOVE!) and individual French press coffee service. Service is always friendly and professional. Food is always delivered piping hot (or cold if appropriate) and well-seasoned. I travel an hour to meet my family at The Lodge!

The burger I got was great: juicy and tasty! Sat at a booth by the bar. Although there was music and slight TV noishe, it did not interrupt a normal level conversation. I would recommend eating here!

We went for a early Mother's Day dinner and the service was amazing! The variety of food was pleasing to everyone in our party and it all tasted good. We had 4 kids in our party and the server was kind enough to ask if we would like the kids meals to come out first and they even provided mats and crayons to help keep them entertained. The atmosphere was exactly like you were in a ski lodge and was very warm and inviting. They have both an inside and outside bar as well as a large dining area. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
