Seated right away and in an area away from live music. Near fire place but there was a draft coming from some place. I assume the air vents right above us. Sever was just ok. Not very attentive and seemed to be in a hurry. When she took order armed to be in a rush. When coming to see if everything was going ok and to see if food was ok. Again she was in and out so quick couldn’t add to order. Overall though as usual food was great. A little noisy due to band but expect it for ice been here many times. Hard to have conversation though at table.
Great crab dip, charming atmosphere, will definitely come back!
I made an online reservation, the day before, for 9 guests at 12:45 on the President's Day holiday. I wrote in the comments that we would be having 5 preteens and 4 adults and would like to have booths next to each other, if possible. When we arrived, I could see the two booths already set up, with small plates, napkins and silverware...PERFECT! We ended up having one more adult join us, but the booths are so roomy, the 5 of us fit with plenty of room to spare. Our waitress was Danny (Danielle?) and she was terrific. Dealing with people arriving at 4 different times isn't easy, but she was as nice as she could be. Definitely someone I would recommend for handling larger groups. She paid as much attention to the kids as she did the adults. The food was delicious, as always. Everyone had a great time!
Food was okay, I was on a date so I decided to splurge and get the filet (Valentine’s Day special) it sucked. Was very bland and a waste of money. Would not recommend getting a steak there. Service was fine food came out quickly, almost too quickly, I imagine the steak was just reheated. My date enjoyed her food. The place was very nice and accommodating, cozy decorations made you feel like you were in a ski lodge. I would go back, just not on a date night, to try the burgers wraps and other bar foods.
We were seated promptly. Service and meal were both great. We will definitively be bsck.
Our only complaint Is we had a 6pm reservation for Valentine’s Day, upon arrival we were told there was another reservation following us at 7:10, this made our night out feel a bit rushed.
Food is average but service was awesome!!
This was our first visit to Hickory Lodge and it was super busy even at 4:30 in the afternoon but then again it was Valentines Day. We were seated in the bar and it was extremely noisy. Tuna appetizer was good but not sashimi quality. Meal portions were fair for the price.
It has been a few years since we ate at the Lodge, and we were pleasantly surprised at how much it has grown. The seafood entree was absolutely delicious as well as the prime rib special. Our waitress was very friendly and pleasant and knew the menu well. We will definitely return to try other meals.
Excellent food. Enjoyed the night. Had a reservation and arrived earlier than planned. We were seated right away Thanks!
I brought my fiancé out to the Hickory Lodge for a special birthday dinner and to propose to her. The staff went out of their way to help make it a wonderful night for us. The food came out hot and was very delicious, and everyone was above and beyond friendly and helpful. Without a doubt this is now our favorite restaurant and they have earned two customers for life. We will be back for date nights and most certainly make it a yearly tradition for her birthday.
This was our 1st time at The Lodge and it won’t be our last! We made a reservation on Open Table and we were seated, immediately upon checking in! Our waitress, Danni was very pleasant. The food was delicious. My husband and I shared the fresh mozzarella bites (the dipping sauce was superb), he had the ribs (tasty but he said a little on the dry side) and I had the Twin Peaks Chicken (so yummy!) Great place for our date night.
Those Rockfish Bites are amazing and the burgers, while not large, have a very wonderful flavor. I wish they had a larger selection of steaks. The flat iron steak wasn’t the most tender but the flavor was delicious and it was cooked perfectly. I have many more trips to make so I can taste all the items on the menu. I’m certain I won’t be disappointed. 😊
Nice menu and no pressure to hurry up and leave. We were able to relax and have a catch up lunch of 2 hours.
Everything was great except for the live music in the bar. You couldn't hear yourself talk to anyone in the restaurant. I will come back but not the days there is live music.
Food is always great. Server and service very good. A bit noisy when live music starts. Special requests made when reserving table are always met. Appreciate the attentiveness of the business and the employees.
Delicious food, wonderful atmosphere and great service. The beef stew is amazing!
Food is always stupendous. Service is always good. Prices aren’t bad for the amount of food you receive. Noise level is a bit loud making it difficult to chat at the table while dining.
Food and service are great. Noise level is very loud and a bit cold in most of the bar/booth areas in front of restaurant.
Great service from our waitress . The food was very good.
Only complaint was they took us to the booth. We were asked if this was ok. When we asked for a table because we felt 5 was tight for the booth, we were told they had no tables and there were many reservations that night. Why ask then?
We noticed many tables around us and they were not used while we were there dining!
Still not filled when we left.
Next time I will request a table when making the reservation.
Great food and enjoyable dinning atmosphere a little loud but was bearable!
As always great food. Was a bit cold and live music was a bit loud. Bar scene all around so that creates lots of noise too. No surprise because I’ve been here often especially prime rib night (Thursday).
We had a large group for a birthday dinner. The restaurant honored our request to be near the fireplace which was perfect. The table setup made it a little difficult to visit but otherwise, the setup worked well. There was live music so it was a little louder than usual. The prime rib was not as good as usual but the service was great! All in all, a successful night!
Had great burgers and drinks outstanding as usual!
My wife and I enjoyed Hickory Lodge. We went there for our date night, the food was amazing and the waitress was very attentive and kind. Will definitely be coming back.
My food was very good but my margarita not so good
Best Nachos we've had. Both our meals were great!!
I've never had a bad meal here. All of the menu items are very good.
Food was great. Prime rib is great and price is good. Great size portions. Server was good. Attentive and friendly.
Great hamburger specials on Monday nights. Fun atmosphere; great for girls night out, family dining, and sharing sports events at bars
So many great food items, was hard to decide which to try. Going to have to go back to try some more. The food was really0 great and Megan was the best. She was friendly, knowledgeable about the selections and offered good suggestions, very attentive, great service. We had the nachos, Rockfish Chesapeake, and a Ceasar salad with salmon.
Was looking for a place we hadn't eaten at before. Had heard from friends that the Hickory Lodge was pretty good (plus a couple of radio ads); so we decided to give it a try.
Place is rustic (ski lodge motif) and the overall atmosphere is laid-back. They have an outdoor eating area that was cranking up for some live music on a Sunday afternoon. We chose to eat inside and could hardly hear what was going on outside - making it a nice, moderately quiet meal.
Ordered an appetizer of "Rockfish Bites" that were flaky and lightly battered. I had the prime rib and my wife had salmon. Both were tastefully prepared and the portions were impressive for the prices they charged. We were too full to order dessert - which was too bad as they had a Bananas Foster Rice Pudding and a Heath Bar Cheesecake just screaming to be tried. (Good reason to come back again.)
Finished off dinner with a cup of coffee - served from individual French presses - it was excellent.
During the whole meal the wait staff was friendly and helpful.
An overall enjoyable dining experience. One that we'll come back to experience again and again.
The food and service were good, but outside dining is great when the weather is Nice! Would recommend.
We had a wonderful server who was attentive, but not intrusive. The kitchen perfectly cooked my burger to order. My only complaint was that the Gouda was not really melted on the top and the avocado was a bit skimpy. The fries are good and salty. My friends ordered wraps and enjoyed them. Had we been eating around dinner time, I would have definitely ordered their fabulous prime rib.
Great food, great service. Better for a group of people, rather than just 2. But outstanding food.
Had a great dinner at The Lodge Saturday night. Since it was just me and my daughter we ordered appetizers to share and drinks. As usual the portions were plentiful and delicious.
Hickory Lodge is one of our favorite places to go. We usually reserve it for a special occasions such as an anniversary, job promotion, or splurging a little more on date night. Everything we've ordered from the menu has been delicious, including beverages. It's able to fit large groups of people and they have a large outdoor bar/dinning area. I do recommend making reservations on the busier nights (weekend and dinner hours) because the wait time can be at least an hour or more. But they're very good at getting you seated asap. The husband and I love this place and we are never disappointed with the food or service.
Always great food. Service is usually good. Sometimes a bit noisy but it is a bar so to be expected.
Brought my Father here for his special day as he traveled two hours and I wanted to try out a place I've yet to eat at in Harford County. It was amazing! Both my father and mother ordered the Black and Bleu steaks with veggie skewers and garlic mashed potatoes. His steak was medium, hers well, and both were cooked to perfection. Myself, I'm a picky eater, so I ordered a cheese quesadilla and I loved it. All three of us cleared our plates which is rare! Our waitress, Kelsey, did a fantastic job with it being a busy Father's Day. Thanks all!
I'm never disappointed when I come here for a meal. Service is always great and the food is prepared perfect. Burgers are moist and fresh. Service with a smile
