This has always been our "go to" for special occasions & Old Hickory Steakhouse did not disappoint for Valentines Day! Food was excellent as usual and the ambiance is always amazing. Thank you for another wonderful meal.

I would never recommend this restaurant, in fact, we were highly disappointed as we chose it because it was our anniversary. My husbands steak, the first time it was brought out was too rare, the second time it was brought out it was very stringy and difficult to cut. Our waiter had a royal attitude and scoffed at us when we complained about the cut of meat. He removed the steak and came back 10 min. later saying he gave it to the chef and yes it was terrible and then said "At first I just thought you had a few glasses of wine before you got here, then had another one here and didn't know what you were talking about." Really?!?!? This is NO WAY to treat a customer. We were appalled! The chef NEVER came out to apologize. They also knew it was our anniversary and didn't offer anything to make our night special. We won't ever go there again.

The service given to us by our waiter, Wayne, made this dinner an unbelievable experience! Our food was perfection. We had several questions and needed modifications to our meal. Wayne was prompt with his service and accommodated us with each request. It is pricey but when one experiences such delightful service, lovely setting and fine food .... the price is worth it!

This place was absolutely beautiful and delicious. The prices were on the high end but it's worth it. I ate here with my now fiance before I proposed to her. It was a perfect romantic dinner. The steak is 10/10 tasty.

My husband and I had a wonderful meal Friday night during our stay at The Opryland Hotel. We loved the scallops. We both agreed that they were the best that we've ever had. We both ordered the filet mignon. Wonderful! Mashed potatoes were also great. Salads and bread were also good. We even tried the carrot cake and the caramel cheesecake. We both liked the cheesecake the best. The whole meal was very good. We will be back for sure! Excellent service. Never ran out of drinks or wanted a thing. Love seeing the water show while dining!

Old Hickory was a great experience from start to finish! Great service. The scallops were yummy for an appetizer. The steaks were cooked to our request. Delicious!! The carrot cake and coffee was a finishing touch. The only reason I gave noise a 4 was because we were outside by the water falls. Over all a great experience. You will not be disappointed!!

Was great as usual. Unfortunately we were seated by a family with small children that were allowed to just run around with no discipline. The restaurant manager asked them twice to keep their children contained that they couldn't be running around, especially where the servers were coming in and out of the kitchen. Made no difference to them. Just let them do whatever they wanted. So disrespectful to the employees and other patrons.

The atmosphere is open but the waterfalls offer just enough background to keep things very quaint. A great place for conversation. We dined on the veranda and felt as if we were in a southern plantation garden. The food and service was great.

The service was excellent. From the hostess to the cheese lady to our servers, they all were very professional and courteous - going the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable and enjoying our experience. The cheese platter was amazing - best part of the evening. The dinner was average. Steaks were average, lobster bisque had tons of lobster, but was too salty, and the veggies to share were average - we had asparagus and macaroni and cheese.

Old Hickory is the best restaurant at the Gaylord Opryland Resort. The steaks are high quality and the service is impeccable. It's my go to place for a great meal when I am at the resort. The filet melts in your mouth.

It was a beautiful place and the food was good, although my steak came not as I had ordered it, after a gentleman took it back and had it prepared correctly (not our waiter) the meal experience was better. Our waiter was pretentious and even a bit condescending. Once we did not take his recommendation on the wine and ordered a bottle $100.00 less expensive, he treated us as if we were welfare recipicant's or the like. I believe the prices, while in line with the cost overall of the property was extensive, we knew this before we made the reservation but nevertheless was not impressed once we had finished with the entire experience. For these reasons, I did not when approached and would not recommend this restaurant.

Went there for dinner. Had scallops for an appetizer that was absolutely great. We split a 24 Oz. Porterhouse and between my wife and I, we could not finish it. The steak is probably the best tasting steak I've ever had. We had the asparagus and mashed potatoes as sides. Both were well prepared and tasty. Initially, we thought it was a little pricey, but when splitting a $48 steak, it was actually reasonable. I would definitely recommend and am looking forward to a return visit.

The service was impeccable and friendly. My wife enjoyed the garden like atmosphere as well. However, our food was only average and over priced. You can get a better meal at one of the high end chain steak houses.

Beautiful location inside Gaylord hotel. Great restaurant if you have winter blues as you feel like you are dining outside. Drinks excellent and service top shelf. Would have been five stars on food but slighty too salty and steak a perfect medium when ordered medium rare. When dining with friends I prefer not to send food back unless a real problem so I let it go.

I was very disappointed. We are staying in downtown Nashville but everyone said we needed to visit the Opryland Hotel for the scenery- and we should eat while we are there. So I found the Old Hickory Steakhouse and made a reservation. The atmosphere was nice, but a little dark and the falls / river were a little loud but we got used to it. I ordered a Caesar salad and I was grossed out to find a little fish on top of it- blah. So it made the whole salad taste REALLY fishy. I mean I know Caesar salad is made with anchovies but I don't think it should taste that fishy. The waiter recommended the New York Strip- so I ordered it cooked medium. It came with no pink at all. I sent it back and they brought me another- even worse overdone. At this point, my husband had already finished his steak. I wanted to shut my eyes as a I paid the really expensive tab because what I ate was not at all worth the price tag. I'd get a better steak at chain restaurant.

We were staying at the Opry Land Hotel and chose this restaurant to take customers to. Seating was right on time. We were promptly shown to our table and greeted by two servers. They were polite, prompt, and knowledgable. You could tell they took pride in their job and the seriousness of making the evening a memorable one. We all had the filet mignon (it was cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth) we chose three family style sides, creamed spinach, macaroni and cheese and smashed potatoes. It all was just delicious. They also have a nice assortment of wines. Will definitely return and recommend to others!
