i was really excited to try this place out. my boyfriend n i went on valentine's day and iv never been more disappointed. i had the filet mignon which was around $20 and it came out beyond undercooked and my boyfriend ordered the ribs....they were hard and dry like theyd been sitting under a heat lamp all day n the sauce tasted pretty much like they had dumped a bottle of ketchup on the ribs n called it a day. for the price, i had expected a much better meal n far better quality than what we had. will not ever b goin back there.

Ribs and Memories

When I think about Old Hickory on Brown St. it brings backs so many memories. My Mom was the first to take me there in my late teens, then went there for Prom Night and other dances from high school, then with husband and friends after marriage, then with our all girl card club to celebrate each one of the 8 on their birthdays, then spur of the moment with my friend Annette, now in my mid 60's I can tell all of you that no matter the decor, the wait, the crowd, it is THE BEST ribs, baked potato, and HOUSE dressing ever...and after all these years I still LOVE to go there and am going this Tuesday with my friend once again...go see and taste for will agree I am sure....oh, and i forgot the BEST coffee as well and you can't BEAT the mems you will acquire there.

YUM YUM, I loves me some SAUCE!!!!!

I done been going der for years, eatin up all the chicken. When people axe me where I am going, I simply reply, da chicken house of love. The bbq sauce is tangy and dynamite! Hash browns, dont mind if I do! It is worth the wait standing in line for the complimentary wine, merlot if you will. The bartendors appearence would suggest they should be employeed at krotchkis bar and grill, and absolute must place to wine and dine! BRAVO, BRAVO OLD HICKORY!

If you havent tried it, your missing out!

I absolutely Love Hickory BBQ! I started going there 18 Years ago when I was just dating my husband. He had grown up In Miamisburg and we make trips up several times a year and when we come we always go to Hickory BBQ and Ron's Pizza. I use to always get their fillet, but then I tried the BBQ Chicken and now that is all I eat. It isn't a fancy restaurant and most of the time you do have to stand in line, but let me just say it is worth it.



some of the best steaks in the...

some of the best steaks in the Dayton area. started going when Iwas in high school with my in california now but i always make the pilgrimage for a t-bone!!



Awesome Broasted Chicken & Potatoes!

If you live in the Kettering, Oakwood or UD area, this place is a well-kept secret! With an old school, cozy atmosphere and some of the best cookin' around, it's a great place to visit if you want a meal like mom or grandma used to make (hint, hint students!).

The broasted chicken and potatoes are my absolute favorite. Crisp and moist ... but not at all greasy.

Come early unless you like to wait in a line out the door. Or better yet, call in carry-out! :-)



The Best !

The shrimp cocktail is the best! Huge shrimp and super tasty cocktail sauce! The steaks melt in your mouth delicious! And its the same whether you wait in line at opening or come in at the last minute at night! It could just be open for lunch!! That would be awesome!



Many return visits

I live in Cincinnati and I still come to the best steak and rib house in Ohio! The atmosphere is cozy and the wait staff is a joy. They know me and my order when I walk in the door. The Hickory always makes me feel like family. See you guys soon!

Not Fancy..Good Food

Here's the deal on this place ... 2 people can eat half a bbq chicken with potato, salad and extra side and get out for under $20.00. The 1/2 BBQ chicken is the best around, big portion, lots of sauce, and tasty. The sweet potato is always a good choice but sometimes a regular baked hits the spot. If you are a true native then the stewed tomatoes are good but not the best in town. It's not fancy and you won't impress your out of town friends but if you want a good meal that not's too crazy expensive, The Old Hickory works. Don't forget about the N. Main location as well as Brown Street.

A Piece of History

I've been going to the Hickory BBQ since I was a child. It's not a fancy place by anyone's standards, they don't take reservations and sometimes the line will go out the front door and around the corner! Still, in my experience, worth the wait. And while I've heard the BBQ is good, I always have the T-bone steak, just like my dad always did!

Hickory Bar-b-que

The ribs were nothing to boast about. Meat was tough and overcooked. I spent alot more money than I would have at another well-known rib restaraunt, and was much less satisfied.
