Incredible bread, good salad, good sides, mediocre steak, and good dessert. Atmosphere and service make the evening a reasonably good value. Food alone was good, but nothing special compared with similar restaurants.
Great view, great seat, great service, great ambiance. Food is premium and priced as so. The quality made it a good deal for special occasions.
Excellent food, service and ambiance. Worth the price! Absolutely exceptional wait staff! In Opryland Hotel. Reservations required
My husband and I were there to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. The food was great and our server, Jorge, was top notch.
Extremely overpriced, very noisy can’t hear conversations. Our waiter had accent difficult to understand him. Breeze blowing on table made us cold and cooled food.
Taste of food did not justify cost.
I have had better beef for much less money.
Very good food. Service was o.k as I thought our Waiter was trying to cover more tables then he could. Although, once he got to us and the meal started, he did an outstanding job....
I’ve been to many steakhouses and this was legitimately the best I’ve had! From the seafood tower starter to the filet with a bone marrow butter accompaniment, to the creamed spinach and mac-n-cheese, nothing disappointed! My guest had the chocolate cake “slice” and it was all but the size of a brick and so decadent and delicious! The service was first class and the perfect mix of attentive, but not smothering, all while demonstrating mastery of the menu with thorough descriptions of every single item. Will definitely be going back next visit!
Went to celebrate my wife’s 70th birthday. Everything was excellent: food, wine, service. They gave us a complimentary slice of cake with ”Happy 70th Birthday” written in chocolate on the plate, a very nice touch.
Fair warning, it is a bit pricey but for a special occasion well worth it.
I was a bit disappointed in the steaks. They were cooked properly and looked good, but the flavor did not taste like aged beef to me..the texture did not seem right. The flavor was lacking(which is hard to do for a bone in ribeye). I eat at a lot of steak houses so I'm a bit of a steak snob. Great atmosphere and service though. I'd still recommend coming here..probably just ran out of aged beef the night I was there.
The setting, overlooking the beautiful courtyards at the Opryland Hotel was beautiful, but very loud. The service was average. The food is extremely expensive and was not of good quality. I had the 22oz. ribeye which was perfectly done, but tough. My wife's chicken was the epitome of a "rubber chicken" dinner. Overall very disappointed.
We really enjoyed our dining experience at the Old Hickory. It is a little pricy, but very good food. Our waitress, Sheba was very good. She made us feel very welcome with friendly conversation. She stayed close to make sure everything was perfect.
The food and the ambiance were fantastic. The service, Tony was first rate, was remarkable. Our glasses were never empty. The steak, as well as the seafood, was second to none. Easily the best restaurant at the Gaylord, and probably the area.
Great food, great service. If you order the mac and cheese with the lobster tail ask for the tail to be chopped into the mac and cheese if not they come out separately. The bone marrow butter topping is a must on the NY strip.
Firstly the food was fantastic. Whether it was worth the price I’m not so sure. There was a band playing below so it was very hard to chat. However what spoiled the evening was the waiter, Amir, coming back at the end of the night to advise that the tip was not sufficient and would I mind increasing it. Now the service was great, I’m not denying that but the price of the food was extreme - $1,000 for a group of 8 - so a tip of $120 I thought was sufficient because had the food been at reasonable levels that tip would be 18%.
The food was great, Andrew our waiter gave us his recommendation which were just as he explained them.
Just a little disappointed that is was our 40th Anniversary and they did not even give us a small dessert in celebration.
Hard to enjoy a meal that is this over priced. Service was very good,but rather steaks were cooked perfectly, but one expects that. At $46 for just a run of the mill NY strip it was just over the top. The food quality is very good but it’s a hard hill to climb to justify sitting in a terrarium. Once and done.
Excellent cowboy ribeye and filet were cooked perfectly. The best creme brûlée we’ve had in a long time.
Amir is the best server I’ve had in the world. Ask for him.
Been eating at there several years, the supplier has been changed for the beef
and there is a difference . Just recently, I was on a cruise on Holland line and they
had changed their beef supplier to the one you are using , from Sterling Silver to JBS Swift and
it is a big difference. The butter flavor that you would have with Sterling Silver is
not there with JBS Swift. Most people would not notice it but we are in the food business
and it stood out. The service was outstanding, best ever.
Waterfall made the ambience slightly louder than I would have liked. When we were seated service was very rushed, but took longer than usual to order our meals and after ordering, service wasn’t attentive enough.
this was the best place for a romantic dinner. Our table was great, staff was great, and the food was great. We shared the Filet Mignon, baked potato and broccoli and carrot. Yum!!! Even got a free desert for our occasion. What a treat!
Outstanding service and exceptionally prepared food.
The bone marrow butter was delicious and super special. The restaurant is loud during the light show
Food was awesome and service was outstanding! Would definitely go back and visit next time in town!
It was a wonderful experience. Our waiter was very knowledgeable in the menu and he provided wonderful service. My wife and I both had the filet and my wife is not a steak person and loved it. We would definitely go back.
Beautiful dining - amazing food - excellent service! One of the best meals we have ever had!
Absolutely fabulous dinner! Felt like our waiter had great knowledge of the food and wine pairing to make the flavors of our food choices perfect.
Our server was fantastic!!! Water glass and wine glass was always filled before we could even ask.
The ability to have a personalized cheese selection with a knowledgeable expert in cheese was wonderful. Great food and service
Very expensive but good food. Wine list not exceptional.
The restaurant and much of the food was very nice. My $50 steak was over cooked and not very enjoyable. The appetizer were excellent as was Paul our server. We were at the Gaylord with customers so during a convention so it was convenient but somewhat of a disappointment.
Very nice for our celebration! Loved the cheese experience with the hostess. The steak was excellent. The staff Amir was so kind and perfect for our group!!
I brought my wife to the Old Hickory Steakhouse for our anniversary. I proposed to my wife at Opryland 19 years ago and I wanted to celebrate at the best place Opryland had to offer. The atmosphere and the service were great. The food was very good, and the steak was wonderful. The personalized dessert at the end of the meal was outstanding! Thank you so much.
My wife was very pleased and I am sure we will be back next year to celebrate 20 years together.
We had a incredible time. My husband got back from deployment and the manager and the staff were AMAZING. The food was incredible delicious. Best service ever..... Thank you woohoo much. We will always remember this especial date. The Tejada's
Our waiter was very rude to us because we would not order more food. He never checked on us
Even with 3 wait staff members serving - ran out of water and ice tea - also had to "catch" a waiter for salad dressing - table beside us pulled our wait staff member away for their demands - waiter left our table to address other table... very frustrated with service
Always consistent and great service. Cool and unique atmosphere.
Very professional and knowledgeable staff. Excellent service and wonderful food.
Wonderful food in a very exotic setting. Quite a unique experience dining in the Gaylord Resort.
Food and service were excellent!
