Anniversary dinner. Great food, excellent waiter and table servers. The lobster bisque is always a great starter there. We had a really good filet and smoked trout.
Even though the kitchen is going through repair, the food was serve warm and in a timely manner.

We are here for our anniversary. Food was super! Keep in mind it is very expensive . We opted for the 3 course meal, salad,steak with 2 sides and a dessert plus we had a glass of wine and the bill was 150.00 I'm not a big steak eater but it was fantastic and their Creme Brule was on point ! You will not be disappointed this is not a place for kids .

We were ushered almost out of the dining area next to the wall by the concourse. We were first put at a table with no light - we could not see the menu. Were moved to the table next to it with overhead spotlights. I think the host thought we were not staying at the hotel and wanted to hide us from the main dining area. We had our coats with us as we intended to go outside to see the lights in the Magnolia entrance after dinner. There were empty tables all around us. The service started out good - water and bread and butter. Two orders of the steak were good, however my prime rib that I ordered medium, came out rare - I sent it back an it still came out medium rare - lots of gristle and fat and barely warm. My daughter's trout was overcooked - very dry. Our side vegetables were served cool - barely warm. Nothing was served hot. A large piece of chocolate cake was served on one plate to pass and five extra forks laid next to it. We had no small plates given to us to share the cake. They eventually stopped refilling the water goblets. My grandsons shared from my husbands and daughter-in-laws plates - I guess they wanted a table of 7 to order 7 entree's. We had a long wait from appetizers and the main courses. After 2 hours I had to ask for the check. The waiter, Tony, wanted to know if we had a room?? to charge to the room? Maybe he thought as the host did, we were not hotel guests. Since I basically left the prime rib on my plate - he did arrange to credit it. Ended up giving a $40.00 gratuity for a very unsatisfactory meal - really felt very unwelcome there and would never go back

Unfortunately, I was very disappointed with our Thanksgiving experience at Old Hickory Steakhouse. We had such high hopes. The food was cold upon receipt, the dining room was frigid, and the selection was mediocre. Because of the price point and waiting list, I was really expecting a five-star experience, and that's not what we had at all. We won't be back.

They had a buffet for appetizers, bread, soup, salad and desert. The entres were also fixed choices but they were brought out. We had expected to be able to order from menu, and didnt expect this buffet, and for 200.00 for 2 people it was not great. The ambiance is nice as you are looking out into the conservatory, but not nice enough to warrant the price. Maybe it's better on normal days.

Generally, a very good experience. We went on Thanksgiving day and were not advised in advance that the standard menu did not apply and an "all you can eat" buffet was substituted so it was not the overall experience we had looked forward to for our anniversary. The setting is beautiful and the waiter was very good.

All went very well, loved the environment at the HOTEL, but one part didn't satisfy and I can't entirely put it on the restaurant, i.e. I ordered prime rib RARE and it might have been better to have ordered medium. The cut was not to my liking in quality. All else, the wide variety of dishes and home made desserts made the Thanksgiving outing an enjoyable one. Our waiter, Peter was quite capable and brought me my "special item" that was surveyed of me when I set the reservations. I was happy to at least have the opportunity to not take the traditionally offered turkey and opted for p-rib over that or glazed salmon, which dish would have made this a 5 Star review.

The atmosphere and food was great. We were celebrating our 20 year wedding anniversary.
The mac and cheese was about the best we have ever had. Next time we will have the Mac and cheese with lobster tail for the meal.

I don't ever write reviews, but this restaurant deserves one. The steaks that my wife and I ordered were outstanding, and I mean "The Best". This is the only steak that I have ever ordered that was better than what they serve at Ruths Chris, and I'm here to tell you I have eaten at a lot of so called "High End" steakhouses, this one is the best!!

Server was nice - red wine by the glass - just ok options - steaks were great but their new salsify entree (all veggies) was not worth $32!! Highly disappointed that the server would not address my obvious disappointment and then had the nerve to ask if we wanted dessert! Stick with a steak and maybe a Cabernet - not a Pinot noir - atmosphere was lovely.

Overall nice place, great atmosphere. We had filets. While they were cooked to right temp the quality of the cut itself was not what you would expect at this price point. More of a Roadhouse quality piece of meat. Service was great!!

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Old Hickory. The food was very, very good, but not the best steak I've ever had. The sides and cheese sampling was phenomenal. The service was absolutely exceptional! I let the Old Hickory know in advance we were celebrating our anniversary and when checking in, even the hosts were aware and wished us a happy anniversary. After being seated, a rose was brought to the table. They definately helped me making my wife feel special!
Thank you so much!!!

A $48 dollar steak, and it was cold when it got to the table. You want a small salad before your meal? That's an extra $15. You want a side with your steak? Another $15. Add 20% tax. Total rip-off, Demos' steaks are better.

I usually have a fairly low expectation that a steakhouse inside a mid level resort will be good but I'm happy to report that these expectations were unhinged by this dining experience. The only table we could secure was at 5:15 so the restaurant was EMPTY as other diners dribbled in behind us. We were seated by the low wall overlooking the waters below ( understanding the scale of this Gaylord property is helpful, here) and had darn near undivided attended by our servers. I LOVED the fillet and we shared the mashed potatoes ( good, flavorful potatoes made extraordinary by the fact that they were served piping hot) and mushrooms. These were a standout. They were earthy, firm and delicious. The only reason I only awarded 4 stars is that the menu lacks imagination. Perhaps some offering that reflects the local culinary scene would be interesting. The restaurant should consider opening for lunch. This would offer hotel guests a welcome alternative to the limited competition.

Overall it was good. All 6 of us got beef. The cuts of meat were excellent, and were cooked perfectly, however the seasoning was way too salty. The variety in size was limited. It went from an 8 oz filet to a 24 oz rib eye and up with nothing in between. The sides were delicious and the service was good but he seemed a little rushed.

Enjoyed a meal here for our six-year anniversary. The food was incredible and the service was some of the best. Our steak was under-cooked, we ordered medium and received rare, but it was incredible and very tender. We got the porterhouse and split it between the two of us, and still could not eat all of it. Wonderful atmosphere of the atrium. Would eat here again!

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.
