Old Hickory Steakhouse at Gaylord Opryland Ratings and Reviews
This is a perfect place to go on a date with your sweetheart. We were treated with amazing service and the food was exceptional. Amar was absolutely the best host and server we have ever had in any restaurant. Not only will be returning again, but we will ask for the same gentleman to serve us again. He and this restaurant made our 17th wedding anniversary something we will never forget.
We were in Nashville for vacation. Wanted a nice meal for last night in town. Old hickory was recommended. We are glad we decided to try it. Food was great as well as the service. After dinner we took the opportunity to walk around the hotel which was also enjoyable
The service was outstanding. Our cocktails were perfect. The assortment of fresh baked breads and the sides we ordered with our dinner were also very good. The problem was with the steaks. $46 for a NY Sirloin that was cooked medium-well, when I ordered it medium. With little time to spare before a 7 p.m. show at the Grand Ole Opry, I suffered in silence. The quality of the filet my wife and daughter ordered was what one would expect in an over-priced steak house. If I was on a corporate tab, I wouldn't have felt so bad!
This was our 44th Anniversary and the staff did everything they could to make it memorable. When they seated us, we were greeted with well wishes for our anniversary by the host. We were given a rose in water for our table by our waiter Tim. He could not have done more. Friendly and attentive, he was great. The food was excellent and there was plenty of it. The meals are a bit pricey, but worth it for a great night out. After dinner, we were given a FREE dessert for our anniversary. Boy was it good. Thank you everyone for making our day very special.
Old Hickory is truly everything you want from a steakhouse...primarily steak! If we weren't flying out the next morning, we would definitely have added a few more courses and feasted on leftovers the next day. We split the bone marrow with apple butter and toast and shrimp cocktail appetizers. Both were exceptional. I had the filet and my associate the New York Strip, both cooked to perfection. We split a side of mashed potatoes to just indulge in a little taste of comfort food...wish I had just taken the leftovers back on the plane...dreaming about them. The service was beyond stellar. I found it so interesting that the employees of the resort, and the businesses within, all wear nametags with their hometown. Only one person I met in a three day stay was actually from Nashville. Our waiter was from Afghanistan and his assistant from Egypt. I almost felt like I was back on a cruise ship. Yes, it's expensive....but in the end, you just don't care! The dress code is smart casual, but they seem to be pretty lenient given the fact they're located in a resort. You'll see everything from jeans to sequins! One of my other favorite things was that we felt as though we were dining outdoors, but in actuality, we were in a huge atrium under a dome , so no bugs!
We are new residents to Nashville, and wanted to treat our out-of-state guests to a special dinner on their last night. I made reservations several days ahead, and we arrived 10 minutes early, which seemed to put the Hostess out. I offered that we would patiently wait til our scheduled time, and she begrundenly said she "would seat us early". There were very few diners in the place. The thing that really confused me, was that there were 2 gentlemen in suits, and one well dressed lady, besides the hostess at the entrance, who stared at us, and would not respond when we said hello. (Keep in mind I had called to confirm the dress code and we were all dressed appropriately.) We are a middle aged conservative looking group in nice clothes. I have never felt so uncomfortable entering a restaurant, and still don't understand. As we left, we thanked them and said good night - again with no response from the same group of greeters, managers, or whoever they were. Our guests remarked that the "greeters" were not very friendly! I will say that the Server was very friendly and efficient. Our bill was about $380.00 and we tipped him well, but we will definitely find another nice restaurant to entertain guests in the future. A word of advice- check the menu ahead of time- wine is sold mostly by the bottle and everything is very pricey. Food is good, but comparable to other nice restaurants.
Took my granddaughter for a nice dinner. We both had filets, macaroni and cheese, mushrooms, and Caesar salad. Was excellent..melt in your mouth steak, best cheesy macaroni, and tasty mushrooms. Would definitely go again. Had eaten there with my husband several years ago -- once again delicious meal. Would definitely recommend. Pricey but worth it for fine dining experience.
We celebrated our 53rd wedding anniversary on July 18th. Seated on the patio overlooking the water features, we loved the amazing ambiance! Hubby had the salmon and I had the filet; we shared the wedge salad, the huge baked potato and the delicious creamed spinach! Rated by us as our best anniversary celebration ever, we could not have enjoyed this experience more! Sorry to have not had time for dessert, but we were off to the Grand Ole Opry. What an enjoyable evening!!!! 💞
We were from out of town when our Anniversary occurred. We decided to go out for a nice meal. The food was amazing as was the service. The only annoying thing was that our waiter didn't properly validate our parking and it caused us a 15 minute delay getting out of the parking lot. The place is magical but come prepared to pay. Dinner for 2 with wine was $372 and it would have been $150 more if we had taken the waiters recommendations on starters and wine. They really treated us special for our Anniversary giving my wife a rose and bringing us a most beautiful and decadent dessert. We were too full to eat it all but it was the best.
Went for our annivesary and loved it. Scenery was gorgeous and very romantic. Service was outstanding, and my husband and I were the only ones out on the "point" so it was very exclusive. The food was delicious. My husband and I shared the "Old Hickory" steak and mashed potatoes and it was amazing. Because we were celebrating our anniversary we were given a complimentary dessert from which we got to choose! Highly recommend for an elegant and romantic evening.
Our server was fantastic. We were celebrating our 17th wedding anniversary and we had our children with us. My son, is recovering from Leukemia and bone marrow transplant. Not only does he need some assistance walking, it was the first time my son, 11 and my daughter 7 have ever been to a "nice" steakhouse with my husband and I. The waitress was phenomenal, as well as the entire staff. They were welcoming, accomodating and amazing with the children. The food was spectacular...absolutely will come again. Maybe we will make it a yearly tradition for our family.
Old Hickory is the prototype American steakhouse. It features excellent, well-prepared steaks and marvelous options for non-steak guests. The service is among the best I have ever witnessed, being both timely and discreet. The wine list was very good, and had choices to cover any budget. We spent a leisurely and lengthy supper there, but the time flew by. It was one of those places you hated to leave at the end.
The salmon steak and salad I ordered were excellent. The waiter was very helpful and answered all my questions with expertise as well as patience. Being on a very strict diet had its' challenges while at the conference at the Opryland, or so I anticipated. But The Old Hickory dispelled that thought. I can recommend the restaurant to everyone. The quality of the food is excellent and the ambiance of the restaurant makes the diner feel relaxed and appreciative of the atmosphere, especially after a fast paced day at the conference.
