Beyond The Burger: There’s lots to discover at Hickory’s Smokehouse
Go ‘Beyond The Burger’ At Hickory’s Smokehouse in West Kirby and discover a restaurant packed with family fun, sizzling sport and date night delights….
For those of us who have experienced the fabulous Southern inspired food Hickory’s, we already know this place is a super-authentic Smokehouse with a menu packed full of Southern style treats and barbecue delights. From mouth-watering meats, cooked low and slow in the smokers to decadent desserts and brilliant brunches – this place serves up the very best Southern American staples; but more than that – it’s good for the soul!
VIK’s (very important kid’s) RULE!
Family fun is at the heart of the offering here and the guy’s ‘cradle to grave’ ethos is evident in everything they do. Kid’s really do rule here and grown-ups can relax from the moment they step foot inside the door. From the recently refurbished outdoor area, complete with covered play areas, yard games and ping-pong; to the ever-popular cinema room – the team are hand-picked and well trained in the art of ‘kid-control’ which all helps parents relax and little uns’ have a ball!
The kids menu is a bit of a triumph too. Designed by Mum’s its packed with Smokehouse treats but has an array of healthy eating options along with a few more ‘grown-up’ choices for our not-so-little lovelies.
A selection of marvellous milkshakes, super-smoothies and a fab frozen custard station completes the family vibe – an all-round restaurant experience for the whole family!
‘With an eleven and two-year-old it’s usually hard to find a place that suits both but the vibe at Hickory’s is just right. Enough street cred for the (almost) teenager and plenty to keep a busy two-year-old entertained!’
Ali Hunter – Busy Mum and Gin Fan
Touch Down For Sunday Funday’s
To say these guys are sport’s mad is an understatement! The bar area and ‘grown-up’ zone to the right of restaurant comes complete with multiple screens and some perfect ‘viewing’ spots for any of you sports fans. From rugby to football and basketball to tennis, sport is very much the star of the show bar side.
NFL virgin? Fear not team Hickory’s are almost evangelical about the USA’s national game. From September to February Sunday night is football night with games shown on every screen, including every game on the Red Zone streamed live. If you don’t know a touchdown from a scrimmage – do not fear, the bar team are well versed in the rudiments of this addictive game and will guide you through the basics. So, sit back, grab a bucket of wings for only £5 and a bucket of Miller Genuine for just £10, choose your team and ROAR!
‘As a pretty obsessive NFL fan I love nothing more than sharing my passion with guests – although some might say boring them to tears! In all seriousness, American football is the most-high energy, fast paced and addictive sport ever. I promise you, one game and you’re hooked! GO RAIDERS!”
Tom Schofield – Hickory’s GM and NFL Nerd

The bar comes to life every Friday night as the bar team mix, shake and stir some amazing cocktails whilst the whole place buzzes with live music. Grab dinner beforehand, or some bar snacks whilst you just go back to being you, and Mum and Dad take the night off!
