What’s for dinner?


The Thursday before last was date night with the only man in my life, my Daddy!  For ages (actually since it opened) I have wanted to try out Hickory’s Smokehouse Grill in Newtownards.  I’ve heard recommendations from friend’s who had been, salivated over pictures on their Facebook Page.


Hickory’s Smokehouse grill is based on Frances Street in Newtownards.

As soon as we went in we were greeted by two really friendly and helpful members of staff who sat us down straight away to a table of our choice.  Waiting for us were menus filled with delicious food and drink, we really were spoilt for choice!


First off the drinks menu, all your usual drinks


And a great cocktail list!


There was also a wine list with a great selection, but I only realised this when we gave the menus back, so I’m afraid no picture.


Yeah, I missed the wine list on the back because I was too engrossed with the meals to choose from, there were so many things I liked the look of!

You can also find a copy of their menu on their website.


Dad went for the Hickory’s Full House Combo – half rack of ribs, pulled pork, chicken strips, hot chicken wings, beef brisket, homemade cornbread, onion rings and chunky chips

P.S. He couldn’t finish all this, so was able to take it home in a doggy bag!


I went for the 10oz Dry Aged Rib Eye Steak from the grill, this came on a HOT skillet onions, mushrooms, crispy onion rings, chucky chips and a choice of sauce.


I went for the peppercorn sauce

The food was absolutely delicious, full of flavour and cooked to perfection!  My Dad can be pretty picky and critical when it comes to the places I pick for us to try out and Hickory’s Smokehouse Grill even had him won over, 100% SUCCESS!!


I would definitely recommend a trip to Hickory’s Smokehouse Grill for dinner or lunch, value for money, delicious food, friendly staff, warm atmosphere and nice, clean toilets (yes I am the person that judges a place on their toilets!!!)
