Meet the Owners...
Meet the Van Hook's!

They are long time residents of the Semmes Area and both are alumni of Mary G Montgomery High School, where they met.They reopened the Hickory Pit in September of 2009. They knew what  the Hickory Pit had meant to the Semmes and the surrounding communities.
 They look forward to growing the restaurant with the continued growth of the now, City of Semmes.


Note From the Owner

We are truly blessed to be apart of such a great community. We look forward to what the future will bring. Not only for the Hickory Pit Too, but the community as well. We want all of our guests to feel they apart of our family and your family apart of ours. All this with Good Food, True Southern Hospitality, and reasonable prices.
