Hipster Magic on The Mountain

Well, we couldn’t believe our luck to stumble on a place like this.
A cool trendy interior created from re-cycled timbers and some stunning bronze sculptures, really felt like one of those little hole-in-the-wall eateries in Melbourne…….and the ribs to die for….so good. It will be a regular for us.


Small restaurant with excellent ribs and friendly staff. I can recommend the ribs, potatoes and corn. I’ve been with wife and family three nights in five days. I think that says it all.

“Great Ribs” 

Great American ribs restaurant at Mt. Tamborine, QLD Australia. Come to Hickory when your here or arrange a trip just for the ribs. Photo of the bones of two delicious racks and a photo of the owners. Definitely 5 stars.

All about the ribs

 I took the children here for dinner and we all enjoyed the ambience and the food. The service was quick and efficient and the ribs sauce was to die for. This is a small, boutique type eatery with a modest number of tables, so you get plenty of attention. Did I mention the ribs were good!!!

Exceeded our high expectations with ease.” 

Michael and his team know ribs cocktails and lovely service. My fiancé and I are staying up @ Mt Tamborine and had pre booked at hickorys for a first visit after reading a few reviews online and seeing some lovely photos. We thought it looked particularly inviting and cozy online… Let’s just say our expectations were easily exceeded. Ribs, absolutely delicious with meat so tender it falls straight off the bone. The cocktails were also a delightful surprise with some unique creations to warm the belly. Hickorys was a delightful place for my fiancé and I to have a lovely meal together on our weekend away. Highly recommend. P.s they allow takeaway, you’ll need it.

Smoking Hot

Hickory has a funky decor, cool music and great food. The ribs are slathered in a special sauce that is delicious, the rosemary potatoes are really crispy, the greens were great (not like some kale I’ve eaten) and the chicken wings were charcoal grill good too… don’t forget to try a dessert cocktail, we had the new Nutella cocktail with an extra spoon to share … can’t go wrong here.


Words cannot do this place justice so all I will say is go there, eat the ribs and have the nutella cocktail for dessert!!!!!
