Disgusting. Mind you, I have eaten my share of meals at Hickory House over the years, but lets all admit it. This place is a dump. It needs a MAJOR renovation. They may be avoiding a mass food poisoning issue by deep frying and/or cooking the heck out of a lot of the food they serve but these issues will catch up to them and there will be a health issue. They need to invest now, rejuvinate their business, and avoid a potentially dangerous breakout or they can continue to operate as is and then close down when "the Big One" hits. I hope they choose correctly. I would actually like to patronize their business again in the future.

Food for thought (no pun intended) we could always drop a dime on "Kitchen Nightmares" or "Restaurant: Impossible" production companies. Dunwoody wants more filming in town, let's open it up to reality shows and kill several birds with one stone. (I kid, I kid... long week, I'm punchy.)

And the waitresses have had HORRIBLE dispositions of late...

Go behind to the Dunwoody Tavern for a great meal!

I'm not shocked. We use to go there a great deal for breakfast. But with the dirty bathrooms, the servers either being rude (tall male) or scattered brained and leaving there with a horrible stomach ache, we have not been back. We thought the food was good, but they need to clean up EVERYTHING!!! And get some servers that are pleasant and focused! Or that place will get shut down.

HH was busier than a stomach pump in a gastrointestinal lab today.

HH = gastro lab business...

OHH in Dunwoody has been going down hill for some time. Most of us had hoped they would voluntarily remodel and provide the quality restaurant and service we so badly need. Obviously, they do not respect their customers or care about improving their restaurant. A check of past scores shows they do little to improve poor ratings. They fill a niche we sorely need and I hope they will respond immediately and positively. We won't be back until they do.
