Old Hickory Steakhouse at Gaylord Opryland Ratings and Reviews
Beautiful location inside Gaylord hotel. ...
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!

I took my fiance for her 24th birthday and it was amazing the food was to die for. if you want to be romantic for your woman or spouse other this is the place to go. note that it is on the expensive side, but anything for your love right?

My wife and I ate dinner here while staying at the hotel. I expected a good dining experience, but quite frankly, my expectations were far surpassed. We started off with a wine and cheese pairing that was exquisite, our steak and lamb porterhouse were cooked to perfection and the chocolate cake desert was very good.
If forced to give a constructive critique, I'd say the cake was absolutely delicious but lacked any extra flare or special touch for such an otherwise decadent meal.

We had such a good experience. Wayne was our server and made the night perfect! He knew everything about the resort and took his time explaining the menu to us. He made our date very memorable.
The food was some of the best we've ever had! I left full but wanting more and sad the dinner was over. I would reccomend this restaurant any day!

Excellent venue. Great atmosphere . Very good service. Food was excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant to friends an family. The lobster bisque was tremendous and the "at the table" combination of ingredients was unexpected and entertaining. The filet was cooked perfectly. Our side dish of asparagus was also cooked to perfection.
Can't wait to return. Call for reservations early. They are usually booked for the optimum dining times.

Evening of January 1, 2017. This was a special occasion and a "Bucket List" item for my wife. The waiter (Paul) was excellent, the food superb, and the atmosphere perfect. It was the high-point of our New Year's and three-night stay at the Gaylord Opryland.

We've eaten here several times. The food is top notch. Steaks cooked to perfection. Not a fan of the macaroni and cheese, but the other side dishes are good. Recommend the assorted cheese appetizer! They pair different cheeses with a complement jam/sauce/nuts. Save room for dessert, it's worth it! We can't wait to come back.

The steak was too salty, the baked potato was cold and hard, the trout had a very strong odor and stronger than normal fishy taste. No one checked on how the food was. We had to find our waiter to get our ticket The restaurant was not busy when we were there. The price vs the food and service was totally unsatisfactory. I would not recommend this restaurant or go back

Our reservation was not ready upon arrival a little wait ok since it was New Year' Eve but I had to go ask on the status after seeing others arrive wait a few minutes and get seated. No one came to check or advise that it would be a while longer. The waiter never came around after the food was served to check to make sure everything was to our liking. I would have expected them to check on how my steak was prepared and if it met my satisfaction. Observed other waiters, checking quite frequently on their tables. Overall it was a great experience and we were glad we dined there.

We were celebrating the end of the year with family and specifically chose the Old Hickory steakhouse. The expectations of a big city steakhouse were met with excellent service without hovering, customized choices and quality food and wine.

Outstanding Roasted Chicken and Smashed Potatoes! My wife and I visited the Old Hickory, Gaylord Opryland for our 11th anniversary and New Year's weekend 2017. We enjoyed every moment at the restaurant bar and our dinner in the atrium, following cocktails and appetizers. We also visited Old Hickory in the Gaylord National Harbor (DC) two years prior. We can only say great things about both!

Impeccable service and brilliant ambiance. We had a superb cheese platter from a large selection of artisan cheeses. Lobster bisque was not too heavy, salads were excellent. Only two choices of aged prime steaks, but full range of non-prime cuts. Coyboy ribeye was very good. Pricing is higher than Ruth Chris for quality of entrees so the value for food by itself is not not up to other high end steak houses although it's hard to beat ambiance and convenience of the Gaylord experience. Will return.

We drive up to eat here several times a year. It is a little pricey, but we share and still get more than enough to eat. Food is excellent and staff friendly and very attentive. Maitre d' is a definitely never friendly so he must not be a people person, but everything else makes up for that.

My wife and I shared an 8oz Filet and Lobster Tail. The steak was cooked perfect and literally melted in your mouth. The lobster tail had the best flavor and was perfect. Hard to believe that the best lobster ever was at a restaurant in the landlocked city of Nashville, TN.
Our waiter/server (Anthony) made our experience perfect!
5 stars does not do this restaurant justice, 10 maybe be closer.

Quality of food was not proportionate to pricing. Disappointed in my overcooked filet. Waiter seemed less enthusiastic after we did not order an expensive wine, salads et. Setting is wonderful although a little noisy. Mac n cheese was amazing. Crab cakes were not.

We were there on Christmas evening. We had an excellent meal of these special 30oz bone in rib steak with bone marrow topping. It was absolutely outstanding. Alan was our server and he was exceptional. His knowledge of the menu, food and wine choices made our evening the best. We would highly recommend the food, atmosphere, wine and service all located in the beautiful surrounds of the Opryland Hotel.

Old Hickory is most famous for its superior steaks and since my husband is a red meat guy I took him there for a special occasion. You pay for the experience in its entirety so tack that on to cost. You make a reservation at Old Hickory with the fore knowledge that you are not going there for economical reasons. The prices are extravagant but you get excellent quality food, service and atmosphere and it is worth the experience for a special occasion.
