Old Hickory Steakhouse at Gaylord Opryland Ratings and Reviews

My husband and I went here for the first time because it was our first year anniversary and we wanted to do something special. Our wait staff Emeel and Paul were wonderful and took very good care of us. We were not disappointed with anything. Thank you old hickory for making our evening special.

My husband and I had a wonderful evening celebrating our 50 th Anniversary. The
Old Hickory Steakhouse at Gaylord Opryland made it very memorable for us. As soon as we were seated our Waiter Wayne brought a red rose to the table to honor our anniversary. I ordered the filet which was cooked perfect, my husband ordered the Lamb which he said was very good. Wayne surprised us with dessert, Creme Brûlée with Happy 50th Anniversary written in Chocolate across the plate, that was the best Creme Brûlée I had ever eaten.
It was a fantastic meal and a wonderful memory.

Here's the positives: the lobster bisque was divine. The sides were excellent. But this is a steakhouse, and unfortunately my steak didn't deliver. I ordered the 60 day dry aged New York strip steak; the cut of meat was excellent, but it was not prepared well. I ordered the steak medium rare, but it arrived severely overcooked on the outside and equally undercooked on the inside--almost a "black and blue" prep. Just poor method and execution on cooking an otherwise nice cut of meat. I know what a good steak tastes like, and I also know how to cook it...this was not it. For an $80 steak, I expected more. Much more.

My new husband and I had many special requests on this day that were all very well met, including that we be able to make an appointment by finishing our dinner within an hour and a half at the very most as well as gluten/sugar/egg sensitive.
We had the wonderful Bone Marrow appetizer which we highly recommend, and they accommodated us with some yummy gluten free toasted bread to go with the cherry butter that was amazing. Our server was kind enough to snag an extra ramekin of that cherry butter much to our delight. I had the lovely lamb porterhouse which was flavorful and done to perfection, whilst hus-bee had scrumptious and generous portion of salmon.
The only negative was that they stated that they no longer offer grass-fed beef and then explained how much better the 'other stuff' was. I cannot be sold on that because I simply know better, so we opted for the lamb and salmon, but our whole original intent was to sample their grass-fed beef since they had been held out by the resort to be the only restaurant there that offered it. :( Still a great experience, but would be perfect if they'd get the grass-fed beef back IMHO.

My wife and I chose Old Hickory Steakhouse to celebrate our 19th Anniversary and we were very impressed with how beautiful everything was and how great the food was. Our server Allen, was the most knowledgeable server I had experienced other than being funny, attentive and suggestive to our inquiring minds. "THANK YOU" Old Hickory Steakhouse.....You will definitely see us again with friends.

My wife and I had an amazing dinner on Saturday night. The marrow butter on top of the porterhouse was an amazing combination. Flavor explosion! Peter and Sheba, our servers, were amazing. We were treated like a king and queen. I highly recommend the Old Hickory Steakhouse.

we were celebrating our 60th wedding anniversary and they really made it special.
Our waiter was Amari and he really did a great job.
He brought a rose to the table for my wife.
He brought a 60th anniversary desert to the table.
He made several great recommendations which turned out wonderful.
He is a true asset the establishment.
My wife was greatly pleased so that made the evening perfect.

Let's start with tossing words like "value" and "budget" out. We came here for our anniversary and I don't mind spending money on special occasions like this. Not sure I would come for a regular vacation.
We had no budget for this dinner, so with that in mind... we truly enjoyed the experience. I'm not particularly fancy myself, but I can certainly appreciate some luxury and this place put it on thick (in a good way)!
Our waiter Amir was great and looked like classy father straight out of a Bollywood movie. He was knowledgeable and super accommodating. We started with escargot, which we've had a few times over the past few years, and it was probably the best I've ever had. We opted for the cheese plate which was a great experience since they had a dedicated employee to describe, deliver, and care over the cheese. Getting a cheese plate is certainly a neat novelty for the experience, but not something I'd do again here.
I opted for the 16 oz New York Strip done medium and the outsides of the steak were amazing, the inner 4 ounces were a tad too rare for me, but this phenomenon is common with me and large steaks.
My wife had a delicious lobster bisque that I would certainly order again.
To sum it all up...
- Expensive? definitely.
- Great food? no doubt.
- Would I come again? maybe after a decade or so just for the nostalgia.
My advice? Drop everything by 25% and you'd earn some "value" points.
I have no issue giving this place 5 stars overall though.

Drinks in the library were delicious and skillfully crafted. The ambience of the bar would have been amazing had it not allowed children in the parlor. A child was throwing a tantrum for 15 min before the family finally left. Cowboy ribeye medium, tender and flavorful. Mac and cheese creamy. Seafood app (crab cakes, shrimp cocktail and scallop) good. The creme Brule fresh peaches scrumptious! Service attentive.

The restaurant is outstanding. The food was amazing. The steaks were prepared perfectly and were excellent cuts of meat. The homemade lobster Mac and cheese was delicious. The ceasar salad and the wedge lettuce salad were also good. Paul our server was very attentive and personable. He is a nice guy. The restaurant is located in a huge atrium. While dining we were surrounded by cascading waterfalls, a river and gorgeous plants and flowers.

My childhood girlfriends and I celebrated our 60th birthday's together at Old Hickory. The steak was the best I've ever eaten. Our waiter (Wayne) gave us a total rundown of the history and was an excellent server. He surprised us with a piece of cake and candles. It was a most excellent visit and we will return as soon as we can.

The food was amazing, the best steak I have ever had. The food was amazing! Our waiter was great and had a great personality!! My husband and I celebrated our one week anniversary of being married and could have not picked a better place. When we come back to Nashville we will for sure come back to Old Hickory!!

The steak was good but it had a huge vein or something in it that was really unappetizing. When we were first seated I was directly in the sun but then we were kind of placed behind a bush so I couldn't see the scenery. Very over priced in my opinion.

Made my reservations for 7:30 and was seated right on time.
Servers were very informative And polite.
Ordered the bone marrow app and OMG was it delish !
Had the 24 oz porterhouse with with asparagus for my main meal.
Steak cooked perfectly at medium .
Only think is they seat you out side and the water noise can be annoying.
Other than that,was a great meal!

My husband and I had a very nice dinner here. We were staying at the site so we just had to walk to the restaurant inside the Gaylord Opryland complex. The hotel and grounds inside are amazing. We mentioned at the end of the meal that it was our anniversary and soon after the waiter brought over strawberries dipped in chocolate with happy anniversary written in chocolate on the plate. Very nice. Meal was excellent, service excellent. Highly recommend.
