Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

So very disappointed. Had high expectations and the food was terrible! Corn had no taste. Wings were excessively sweet. Meat was dry. Such a shame.

Service was impeccable. The food was absolutely lipsmackingingly delicious. Loved the rib sauce and rosemary fries.

Best chicken wingz we’ve ever had! The service was wonderful and the atmosphere was lovely. We had to park on the street because the place was packed. Bookings essential.

Over priced and over cooked. Dry ribs are not appealing. Very disappointed. Front door left open which cooled down the already dry rib. Did I mention the ribs were dry. Hardly any sauce. 🫤

Came for lunch today. The young waiter was very friendly and helpful. Arancini and cauliflower salad was yum. Hubby had the brisket which he said was awesome. Corn and sausage nice. A but strange that the sausage is cut into pieces. Overall a great place.

Went for a family birthday on a Sunday evening, when several restaurants in the area were closed. Food was outstanding. We tried almost everything on the menu and everything was a hit! Favorites were the brisket(so incredibly tender), the sweet potatoes, and wings. Service was...speedy and courteous. Definitely would go back.More

Tucked away is this beautiful little restaurant which is a must to dine in. A friendly welcome by lovely staff, with quick and prompt service. You come here to sample the slow cook meats and you will not be disappointed. We can highly recommend the...ribs and the brisket, just so tender and fall apart. The kids pasta was delicious, as were the cocktails.More

Our new Mountain fave. Staff we’re accommodating as we didn’t have a reservation. Limited menu but adequate and the food was divine. Ribs where meat fell off the bone, wings with the most delicious buffalo sauce and beef brisket (sharing platter). We had the side...of BBQ corn which was yum. Cocktail’s we’re fabulous as was the service. Just 2 young girls but they did the restaurant proud!! Only downside was the drinks were a little pricey and tables a bit close together, but other than that-amazing. Cosy atmosphere 😍More

Was very satisfied with the food and service. It has been 3 years since we were here last. Was looking forward to the shovel head of seafood but it is no more. Chicken wings were yum and the ribs were great. Only negative comment is...not enough types of beer but was happy to drink what was available.More

We’ve been here about 5 times. The place has changed hands, the quality and service has changed. The blonde waitress was amazing, so accommodating and friendly. The food was ok. The corn hardly had any sauce and not the quality it usually is. The lamb...tastes and felt like it had been soaked in bicarbonate soda, it was slimy. The Asian waitress put our food down without even looking at us, it was very rude service. Sadly we won’t go back again after after years of enjoying this place.More

We had a dinner for three during school holidays. We sat outside and whilst there was a welcome heater to keep us warm you can't hide that you're sitting next to a car park. The shared meat platter of ribs, brisket and wings is what...we came for and it didn't disappoint - it was delicious. We couldn't finish it all and the staff were happy to provide a takeaway box. The staff were friendly and attentive. The alcohol prices are very high, especially the wine.More

Very disappointed. When booked in advance requested we have an inside table as we had a very young baby with our group. Arrived to find we are out side! Freezing. Cocktails we good, but the food average. Would have stayed longer for more drinks and...dessert but we all too cold.More

Enjoyed the evening at Hickory. It was a cold night and the inside of the restaurant was like an oven!!! Too hot really particularly as it was full to capacity. The food was nice… plenty of it and tasty. Was disappointed that there were a...few items unavailable as they had ‘run out’. It was the first night of the week that the restaurant was open which seemed odd that things had not been restocked! Particularly the tequila for the margaritas! It would have been nice with a little more space between the tables as it was just about impossible to talk privately to my partner… and the tables for two were tiny….More

Absolutely delightful restaurant! Great atmosphere, friendly staff, delicious food! Visited with a friend on a rainy Saturday night. We booked online earlier that day and glad we did as it got busy and the only other walk-in seating options were outside. We were seated at...the bar and that was no issue. Everything we ordered was super tasty. We over ate, but it was very much worth it!More
