This was my first time at Hickory Tavern and it won't be my last! Our server was very accommodating for a large group, everyone enjoyed their meals, mine being the grilled chicken sandwich while 2 in our group had clams on ice, which they both thought were wonderful. They have a very large bar, lots of tables and TV's. I'm... More

Hickory Tavern has great bar food, but also a full menu if you're in the mood for steak or seafood. There is a bar area but also a seated area. Regardless of where you sit, you will be able to see at least a dozen TVs. And yes, this place gets loud when the big games are on, but there... More

We came here because it was about the only place still open for dinner late at night on a weekday. It's a pretty noisy sports bar, but it's huge, and although noisier than we prefer, we were still able to enjoy the visit. On one of the many tvs (>50?), playing lots of different events, we were introduced to drone... More

Our first time to Hickory Tavern, was a very good experience. This is a sports bar with lots of flat screen TV's if you like that. There were a variety of things on the TV's to watch. Service was quick. Our waitress was attentive to our needs. Food was good. I had the wings and french fries. My husband at... More

It was a cold weekday night and we were greeted by a dour young man who seated us next to the drafty windows. We moved. The server clearly was not into it and took forever to bring the simple order we made (soup and baked potato, burger) The Hickory Tavern in Spartanburg is wonderful and we were quite disappointed by...

We had lunch here one afternoon with my college age boys, my wife, and I. Nothing real special here. Typical sports bar and grill, at least at lunch. I think they were understaffed. Service was good, food was okay but nothing worth going on about. We would probably go back.

Average run of the mill sports bar. We went during lunch so was not busy. Food was mediocre. It is surrounded by many other restaurants.

Thank you Ms. Emily and Ms. Taylor for making our first time GREAT. Pros: Great location, in walking distance to the Hilton Asheville Biltmore Park. BBQ Chicken Nachos are meaty and flavor full and to top it off Raspberry Lemon Drop Martini was a treat. Cons: none
