883 Highland Avenue SE

Hickory, NC 28602




Highland Avenue Restaurant changed the culinary landscape of Hickory in 2013 when the farm-to-table restaurant opened. Highland Avenue has garnered regional and national praise for locally sourced foods; farmers and purveyors walk through the back door daily, arms laden with produce, cheese, and meats from their North Carolina farms. Located on the second floor of the beautifully renovated Holler Mill, Highland Avenue pays homage to the city’s rich manufacturing history while focusing on Appalachian cuisine. The restaurant offers stunning, seasonal fare and provides guests with a taste of true Southern hospitality.
