The fruit would probably be bitter, but the nut inside would most likely be ok.
I really don't know, though. I've heard of people roasting them on an open fire at Christmas :-)

I'm pretty sure an edible chestnut will have a spiney outside to them.

My buddy said it's likely a hickory tree .. a shagbark hickory or a bitternut hickory. He's looking at it on his phone though.

Looks like a plain ol' hickory nut to me.
I have a few here and the squirrels love them.
