Highland Avenue Restaurant changed the culinary landscape of Hickory when our farm-to-table restaurant opened in 2013. We have garnered regional and national praise for locally sourced foods. On any given day, farmers and purveyors are walking through the back door with produce, cheese and meats from their NC farms. We are a destination for people who love good food. Located on the second floor of the beautifully renovated Hollar Hosiery Mill, Highland Avenue pays homage to the city's rich manufacturing history while focusing on chef driven cuisine. Trout, oysters, and shrimp; homemade pastas and breads; flatbreads, seasonal salads, and NC grass fed beef are a few of the popular items you'll find on the menu. We offer stunning, seasonal fare and provide guests with a taste of true Southern hospitality. Check our website for information on our banquet facility and event space.
