The service was impeccable (Wayne was our waiter) and the food was outstanding. We had the bone marrow appetizer...one of the best things I have ever tasted. The lobster bisque and Caesar salad were very good. The bone-in rib eye was amazing!

Celebrating our Mother's 80th Birthday-We wanted a special place with an outstanding menu and atmosphere. The Old Hickory Steakhouse delivered spot on. Our server Sunny and her assistant made the occasion a very memorable one. The steaks were done to perfection, and the macaroni and cheese took our taste buds into scrumptious heaven.

My family went here before heading to the Opry, and we were all impressed. At our table, we had steak, crab cakes, mashed potatoes, creamed spinach, and the peach and arugula salad. It was all divine. The service was impeccable. Yes, it was a bit pricey, but it was worth it.

The Old Hickory Steakhouse was an excellent experience from the beautiful ambience in the Opryland Hotel, to the attentive staff. The steak was delicious along with the mac and cheese side dish! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a special occasion dining experience.

We love steak and were sold on the Tomahawk steaks and we purchased 2 for the 4 of us. The steaks were quite fatty and my wife and daughters did not really enjoy them. For $180 in steaks and a $500 bill for dinner I don't think it's unreasonable to expect better delivery.

Outstanding in every respect; top-notch food, professional service, perfect atmosphere and personal attention with few rivals; Old Hickory Steakhouse and Opryland Hotel have become our first choice for a great wedding anniversary weekend for several years now and more to come.

Celebrated 23 years with my lovely wife and had a wonderful meal and overall good time. Peter and Zach were outstanding servers - never had to ask for a refill of anything, they were always there filling our glasses before we even asked. Nice touch that the restaurant gave us a free piece of chocolate cake nicely decorated for our 23rd Anniversary celebration - that was a real surprise. This will now be our "go to" for special occasions in the Nashville Area!

We went here for dinner on our last night in Nashville. The ambience is great being open air inside the Gaylord atrium and surrounded by water falls and plants. The food was excellent and the wait staff very attentive. It is a bit on the expensive side but a great choice for a special occasion.

It's a pretty up scale steak house that you should probably make a reservation to be sure you will get in. Has a small upscale bar with a few high tops that have full menu available so that's and option if restaurant is busy. For such and up scale restaurant the service was not great. The flow of the food service was not particularly good , bread was served they Long wait for salad and then and even longer wait for main course. But it's all about the steak which was just OK not bad but not great. The asparagus was very over salted but the Mac and cheese was very good. For the price I would not go back service lacking and food just ok

Beautiful location inside Gaylord Opryland resort. Offers the ambiance of outside dining in a beautifully crafted indoor garden. We ate dinner at Old Hickory two nights during our four night stay in Nashville! Favorites we would recommend without hesitation...lobster bisque, crab cakes, filet and their mashed potatoes taste like dessert, the butter made them so sweet. Every staff member we interacted with was genuine, professional and capable of delivering first class service.

While this restaurant is at a price point that makes it too pricey to visit regularly, both the food quality and service make it worth every penny. Everything was delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed the roasted chicken breast, the NY strip steak, arugula and grilled peach salad, and creamed spinach side. My husband claims that the steak was the best he's ever had. We can't even imagine how wonderful the desserts must be, but we were so stuffed that it wasn't possible for us to even entertain the thought of ordering dessert.

My girlfriend and I were fortunate enough to try out this gem while staying at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and it did not disappoint. The feel of the restaurant seemingly takes you to another time; when people genuinely cared about their craft rather than simply hurrying through the motions. The staff was courteous and VERY hospitable. Our waiter literally was able to recite the menu verbatim, with insight on each particular item. The staff was attentive without being overbearing. The food was exactly as I expected; great tasting, formal presentation, but didn't feel overly pretentious. The presentation was exactly on-point with the atmosphere of the restaurant. The cocktails were mixed perfectly and presented with a touch of elegance (I recommend the Beauregard). Overall, I honestly feel that this experience was the highlight of the trip.

we had an early dinner in your nearly empty restaurant, yet we were seated in the very back by the kitchen doors. We had advised the maitre'd that we would be attending the grand old opry, so he knew we would not be lingering. This made for a very average/mediocre overall experience

This is my second trip to Old Hickory, and it was for my 32nd wedding anniversary. As with the first trip, the ambience is terrific, the wait staff is on top of things, and the food is outstanding. I've had steaks at a lot of touted 5 star steak houses, and I've yet to find one that has been as tender, or grilled to perfection, as Old Hickory. This is an authentic steak house-medium rare means medium rare-complete with a cool center. Be aware of that when ordering.
The side dishes are huge, so be aware of that before ordering. One side is easily enough for two-four people, depending on appetites. I suspect your server will make this known. That being said, it is possible to get a half order, which is still enough for 2 people! Our server, Wayne, made that known, and I'm glad he did. I ordered peas with goat cheese and lamb bacon. Oh my! If that's on the menu, and you enjoy unique flavors, you must order it. My wife, being a chef, is able to deconstruct it and you can be sure we'll enjoy this dish again. It was superb!
For dessert, we were brought a creme brulee that was to die for. I don't like overly sweet desserts, and this was amazing. It was very well balanced and the carmelized sugar was perfection. If there was one drawback, the french whipped cream on the side was too sweet for me but, as I said, I don't like real sweet things. I'm sure it would be fine for most everyone else.
Overall, I highly recommend spending an evening at Old Hickory if you're in Nashville and want a 5 star dining experience. Be prepared to drop a few bucks, but for a wonderful dining experience or special occasions, it's well worth it. If you tend to count pennies when dining, do yourself a favor and don't visit, because it isn't cheap.

I have traveled many countries and places. Old Hickory by far has the best atmosphere, service and food of anywhere I have eaten. Definitely is worth the price you spend. They have set a new standard in a dining experience. It will be hard for me to find another restaurant that will compare to Old Hickory. Outstanding!

We were delighted that this restaurant held our table, given our delay in traffic. Servers were friendly and professional and responsive to our need for attentive service, given plans to attend the Grand Ole' Oprey show that evening. Meal was delicious, hot and well presented.

Our server, Andrew, was amazing and his wine knowledge along with his suggestions were spot on to my pallet. He was also very helpful in assisting us with our food choices. All in all, it was a fantastic experience.

This place is very nice, the food was excellent and the service was also top notch. One thing to keep in mind, this is a REAL steak house, not a Texas Road House or Logan's. The meat is cooked to real steak house standards. For example medium is pink center cool to touch, keep that in mind when ordering, if you normally get medium I would suggest medium well. The side are shareable and plentiful, we got the shareable mushrooms and between two of us we could not finish them. We also got the shrimp cocktail appetizer, they are HUGE, you only get 4 but they are three times the size of your normal shrimp you see in other restaurants. The staff is super, they know your name when you arrive at the table and great you as Mr Mrs .... like they know you, that was cool. This is very nice place but expect to drop $100+ on dinner for two but I can tell you, worth every penny. Great for date nights or special occasions. They also have a huge wine selection if you into that, if not they also have Bud Light, and it was COLD. Will be back someday.
