  • Steve and his team helped create a great menu for our wedding reception dinner and helped us stay in budget. Worked with us leading up to the wedding and kept me stress free. Hush puppies were a hit for cocktail hour and all of our guests loved everything. We had the brisket, chicken, pulled pork, warmed potatoes and my favorite Mac n cheese and greens. All so delicious and fitting for our barn wedding with bluegrass band. Brie was amazing in helping us create a signature drink that was perfect in the autumn chill. The service and food was all around fantastic. Thank you Hickory for catering or wedding. Our guests loved the food. We will be back to the restaurant every time we pass through Kingston. Always pleased with your bbq!!

  • We were nervous at first with having to find our own caterer for our venue in an area we weren't too familiar with but Steve and his team (shout-out to Brie) were so helpful in advising us about our menu and making our wedding day run seamlessly. Everyone raved about the salmon, turkey and brisket! We are not one of those couples that didn't make time to eat on our wedding day and when we tried the food it was even better than when we tasted it at the restaurant! We were also so pleased with how Hickory provided gluten-free and vegan options for a handful of our guests that fit in well with the rest of the menu so as not to make our guests feel uncomfortable. The pastry chef on site (Kristi) made amazing cupcakes that everyone raved about, while Steve's Mom made delicious pie bites for us (pumpkin, apple, and strawberry rhubarb). We can't thank Steve enough for a seamless, delicious and accommodating experience!

  • Steve and his team pulled off the wedding of our DREAMS this past weekend. We wanted a casual bbq vibe for our wedding and this team delivered. We had a lot of heavy drinkers at our wedding and running out of alcohol was one of my biggest concerns, and Steve and team had more than enough on hand to make sure that did not happen. The food was delicious- guests had seconds and thirds, and I even saw some people eating dessert right off the serving tray since it was so good. Steve responded to every question within minutes and was extremely responsive and accommodating. The team that served our wedding were THE BEST- the bartenders were quick to serve and extremely friendly, and the catering team made sure we always had food in our stomachs and a drink in our hand. We highly recommend Hickory!

  • Steve and the Hickory team were awesome to work with. I've never heard so many rave reviews regarding the food at a wedding before. In addition, the staff was super helpful, professional, and generally just awesome and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend hiring Hickory BBQ for any event you have in the future and cannot wait to visit the restaurant again this summer!!

  • Delicious food and even more helpful staff for our wedding in Poughkeepsie! From start to finish, Steve was straightforward and able to accommodate all our requests, even our beverage change five days before our big day! The staff on our day even ran to get coffee cups when we forgot them - amazing doesn't feel like a strong enough adjective to describe the experience! Our only wish was for more cornbread, so we'll have to stop in soon to have some more!

  • Our guests were blown away by how amazing the food was- they’re still talking about it and it’s been a week! Steve and the team at Hickory put together a phenomenal menu, an outstanding bar package, and it didn’t break the bank. We were so impressed that we didn’t even have to worry about service staff- Steve sets all of that up for you so you only have one bill to pay. The quality of the service was outstanding. The team was very responsive and able to meet every request we had. Most importantly, Steve was super flexible and helpful throughout. We decided to have a special homemade dessert but our venue didn’t have a kitchen on site. Steve stepped up and was able to help create a plan for how to store the dessert in the days leading up to the wedding. If you want amazing food that will make everyone jealous that they didn’t have it at their wedding, Hickory is definitely the caterer for you.

  • We cannot recommend Steve and Hickory BBQ enough! We had them cater our wedding rehearsal and it was amazing. They drove hours to the venue, set up, cleaned up and served the most delicious food. Everyone loved it and we had food the next day while we were getting ready for the wedding! Steve was professional throughout the entire planning process and answered our million questions with ease and calm. The team onsite was incredible, friendly and professional. We can't thank them enough for making our wedding dinner so special!

  • I hired Hickory to cater my unusually large welcome dinner. They were very quick to respond and were able to work with me on the per person cost to bring it down to something I could manage. The staff were extremely pleasant and professional and everyone loved the meat. My only critique would be to finesse the veg sides and veggie burgers a bit. The string beans were quite bland and the frozen veggie patties were not of the same quality of the meat. I understand that is not their focus or specialty, but hey not everyone eats meat. Homemade veg patties would have made it a home run.

  • Steve and his team at Hickory BBQ catered our 240 person wedding. It was incredible! The food was delicious (lots of guests commenting on the sauce and perfect cook of the steak) and the service was unbeatable. We were so thrilled with everything and have also eaten at the restaurant many times. Get the wings! You won't regret it! Steve is truly the best in the business and we cannot thank him enough for making our big day amazing! We will be back soon!

  • Hickory BBQ’s team was seriously amazing! Out of all our vendors, Steve was the most communicative, and our head server Murphy was also just as accommodating. Steve would always answer my emails in the same day, sometimes within the hour – I find that very impressive for any businessman, and it really helped us feel comfortable in the decision we had made for our caterer. I respect Steve so much for his communication skills, and even more for the food! The chefs on-site at the wedding worked magic! Our guests LOVED dinner. We had a mashed potato bar (a dream of ours from the start) that was bar none, everyone’s favorite part of dinner. Every guest had something to say about Hickory’s potatoes. We also had some special circumstances with guests’ diets, and Hickory crafted a gluten-free and dairy-free version of their vegetable lasagna for just that purpose, and the guests raved about it! Murphy was brilliant, she was so on point with every detail of our wedding and our recepti... Read more

  • Steve was so easy to work with and very responsive! We used Hickory to cater our rehearsal dinner. The food was great and working with Hickory was pretty seamless. Steve even helped us out and sought us bar tending help for our actual wedding. Murphy was our bartender, also an employee at Hickory. She was great and so sweet!!! Thank you Steve and Murphy for everything.
