I've been here a couple times just for the beer and a couple times for the food. The place is an old train station and it's kind of neat. There's a bakery/deli meats/cheese station in the front of the store along with beer and wine (and some local goods like grits, pickles, etc.) I never looked at the wine, but the beer for sale is actually reasonably priced.

Now, the restaurant has about 30+ beers on tap (I believe). The choices are outstanding. Of course, they have most of the Olde Hickory beers on tap and at least one cask. They have plenty of local beer but a good selection of beers from top breweries. Also, on the beer list, they let you know what's leaving soon and what's coming up next.

The food is actually pretty good too. They use local ingredients and I typically see the cooks purchasing things at the local farmers market. The entree menu for dinner can be pricey, but you get a lot for your dollar. The sandwiches are the best prices and I typically have leftovers.

I'm going to be coming back to this place for sure.

Have never eaten here, so can't speak to the food. But I know that I'll always find a good bottle in the shop and I make sure to check out the taplist since they always seem to have stuff I can't find anywhere else. Great place that I'll continue to frequent.

A great addition to downtown Hickory, just across the tracks from their Tap Room. When you can open a bar pretty much right beside another of your bars - and keep them both flowing steadily with customers - you're doing something right. A massive draft list (I'm guessing 80) covering lots of styles - loads of local and international brews to choose from - two cask conditioned brews too. Great food - though the menu recently changed and is now a bit pricier than before. The also have a small deli with very interesting stuff, a good bottle shop and they sell OHB growlers. We stopped by today and had KBS on draft and a dry hopped Irish Walker on cask.... It was a good day.

Wow - this is a wonderful new addition to the Hickory NC scene. While the Tap Room just across the railroad tracks focuses heavily on Olde Hickory Brewery beers, the Station has a much larger and more wide ranging list. Service has been decent on several occasions.

Only one complaint: the Station has 2 beers on cask (which isn't at all the complaint - fantastic!). Twice when I've been there, they've had the same beer on tap and on cask, and the waitstaff couldn't figure out which was the correct one. My table had to send back several beers because they weren't the one on cask. Minor annoyance though given the overall quality of the place and the beer list.
