On our way back from the Asheville area last week, this place was a must-stop. Came here for dinner with the family. The establishment sits in a cool little area filled with coffee shops, wine bars, and art studios. Neat little area to walk. The place was pretty dark inside, and the interior didn't flow really well. It was like there were 2 rooms. We were place on the non-bar side. Tap handles completely cover the walls. Service was decent. Waitress was prompt and efficient. The beer selection was really good, as expected. Most all of the OHB brews were available, even some of the special releases. They had a smattering of offerings from other local breweries as well, which was nice. But I was here solely for some fresh OHB. The food was fantastic! I got a burger and my wife got a pizza, and both were excellent. This place will become a regular stop on my way down the 40. Recommend.

I enjoy this place any day of the week but especially love the Sunday Brunch they have. I get the Eggs Benedict along with a beer or three. At that time of the day, the atmosphere overall is a bit more relaxed and easygoing. I do miss this place as I have moved to TN but plan on going back to it just for Brunch. I highly recommend this establishment and I look forward to going back myself.

The beer selection and choices were outstanding at Olde Hickory Tap Room. I enjoyed a high gravity stout and an IPA. They have a massive restaurant that fills up completely making it loud and uncomfortable. I enjoyed the beer, but I think I'd rather take it to go. I went to Olde Hickory to try out the beer and food, but the food being served around me didn't look especially appetizing. I didn't try any food, so I cannot say that it didn't taste bad. It just looked like the usual pub food that you can get anywhere, nothing special. I'd like to try more of their beer, but am leery about returning on a weekend. This seems to be the main place everyone goes in Hickory.

This was a regular for me during college and it stuck. Anytime I'm in Hickory, I try to make time for the Tap Room. This place has it all: Great food, Excellent beer selection, Pub decor/atmosphere... There really isn't any more that one could ask for.

First time out, and am already contemplating mug club since I may stop in monthly on my travels between Greenville, SC, and Charlotte. Fish and chips were awesome with 2 large, whole filets battered and fried to perfection and pub chips that added the right salty crunch. Board was full of great selections although staff needed a little more knowledge to recommend home-turf brews. Great attention, great attitude, just a little more education on beer styles will take it to a whole other level. Now to the good stuff. Started evening with Orion Saison. Nice fruity, esther-filled effort. Not quite the spiciness I would expect. Moved into an upward spiral of hops starting with Table Rock Pale Ale moving to Black Raven IPA then soaring to Death By Hops (7 big juicy hops!) and ending with a final call to the Redeemer. Introduced a couple of friends to the wonderful world of flavorful beer and enjoyed seeing a sleepy little Southern town appreciating a gem of the Piedmont in Olde Hickory Taproom.

this was one of the coolest places i've been in a long time. i really enjoyed how their bar was laid out. totally taken aback by the amazing liquor selection at this beer centered establishment. got the chicken fried chicken and thought it was the perfect amount of food. actually hung out and go a tour of the brewery from Steven, one of the owners earlier in the day and he met us for dinner. very nice place that had a great friendly vibe, awesome beer selection and good food. would recommend to others.
