The atmosphere is classy. They have taps of many different brews on the walls as well as mirrors with paintings of historical Hickory buildings. It is mostly wood inside and the lighting is perfect. Not too dark and not too bright.
The quality is good. They had many of there own brews as well as several others. I had the sampler and a Hop Devil.
The service was outstanding. The waiter printed out a list of all there beers on tap and sat down with us for a few minutes to discuss them. He was very nice and knowledgable.
I had some buffalo wings in there tiger sauce. They were not your ordinary Buffalo Wings. Well above average. This is a place that will be visited more frequently. Thanks to Enola and Ladyfirefighter for the invite!

My girlfriend and I love this place. Wonderful beer (as I've come to expect from Olde Hickory) and wonderful food. My only complaint is the size of the bar area which makes it a little cramped on busier nights. Overall, though, definitely a place to go when in Hickory.

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.
