Old Hickory Steakhouse at Gaylord Opryland Ratings and Reviews
Really disappointing and very expensive. The service was poor. After being served they never came back to check on us. One person's meat was raw. We finally flagged someone down but everyone was eaten. The manager came over and said he'd take it off the bill but for a restaurant like this, we should not have had this experience. Then they brought out a huge selection of desserts, which nobody really wanted. Limited food choices. Definitely wouldn't go back or recommend it.
Dinner was excellent. The gentleman outside, when we arrived was less than friendly. Rachel, who was the Fromager was outstanding and by far the friendliest person we encountered during our meal. She was truly the highlight of the dining experience. The steaks were amazing and the Bone Marrow butter was great!
The charm of Old Hickory Steakhouse is undeniable, it is a romantic and realistic blend of southern charm. The lobster bisque is amazing and highly recommended. The disappointment came with the steaks not being cooked properly and being a little salty. The waiter acknowledged the error and made the gesture of free dessert. This was fine, but when you are paying $45 for the steak only you expect it to be as ordered. Our other disappointment came when they gave us a validation card for parking that didn't work so we ended up paying an additional $28 on top of the $200 we spent for dinner. The staff was quite friendly and attentive, we just expected a little better from such a place. I would recommend it on the virtues of the ambiances and the desserts in any case!
It is the little things that can bug you... We were guests at Gaylord Opryland Hotel so we charged the meal to our room. In so doing, the waiter surely should have known that we were entitled to a complimentary desert, something we noticed after the fact on a small folded card located in the room pass envelope. We could have ordered the desert "to go" and enjoyed it later in our room. And this happening after we had conversation about the wonderful meal and the beautiful deserts we saw being delivered. A wonderful meal and experience soured a little...
Very convenient since we were staying at the Gaylord Opryland Resort. The ambiance was great as a thunder and lightning storm moved in while we were dining under the glass dome. Steaks were prepared to perfection and presented in a timely fashion. Our side dishes were delicious...all recommendations made by our server were spot on.
Food was good. Very overpriced, the server Amir was too busy socializing at other tables and rarely came to our table. Two other tables that came in after us with the same or more people in their parties were finished with their food before we got ours. They were out of stock on the wine we wanted and had to get a more expensive bottle. Very over priced but you get that at a resort style place. Honestly while the steaks were good, I have had better at Longhorn steak houses.
This was my third meal at the Old Hickory.
Twice when staying at the Gaylord and this last time we were actually staying in town at the Union Station and drove out to the Gaylord just for dinner.
Each time I've been here has been amazingly good.
They have a great wine selection, food is wonderful and service has been great each time.
Well to be honest, first, I was shocked at how many empty tables there were. I had quite a bit of difficulty getting a reservation (open table was telling me there was nothing, the restaurant doesn't open to take reservations - based on the website - till 5 pm, so I kept trying till something 'seemed' to open up) and I thought that the place would be packed. Even checking in ( I got there 15 mins early) was told I had to wait bc they weren't seating 'my time slot' and to have a seat. (That guy needs to be friendlier!!!) Yet when we walked in there was practically no one there! And it remained the same all night long - maybe 50% of the restaurant was full between 5-8 pm.
Second, the server was pretty nice although considering the lack of tables, I'd have expected her to visit a few more times.
And last but not least, for the price, I wasn't that impressed. I've certainly had better, more tender steak. One glass of wine (in total) was ordered and the bill before tip was $320 for 4 people. To be honest, I've given this a place a try 3x hoping it'd get better but don't think I'll be back.
Hostess, servers, and staff were very friendly.... especially our waiter Bryan Valeriano and the cheese woman. they are very passionate about there work. They know every item in the menu and are very courteous and soft spoken. Bryan was really good with the types of wine that should be paired with our main course. all in all we were very impressed.
I would never recommend this restaurant, in fact, we were highly disappointed as we chose it because it was our anniversary. My husbands steak, the first time it was brought out was too rare, the second time it was brought out it was very stringy and difficult to cut. Our waiter had a royal attitude and scoffed at us when we complained about the cut of meat. He removed the steak and came back 10 min. later saying he gave it to the chef and yes it was terrible and then said "At first I just thought you had a few glasses of wine before you got here, then had another one here and didn't know what you were talking about." Really?!?!? This is NO WAY to treat a customer. We were appalled! The chef NEVER came out to apologize. They also knew it was our anniversary and didn't offer anything to make our night special. We won't ever go there again.
The service given to us by our waiter, Wayne, made this dinner an unbelievable experience! Our food was perfection. We had several questions and needed modifications to our meal. Wayne was prompt with his service and accommodated us with each request. It is pricey but when one experiences such delightful service, lovely setting and fine food .... the price is worth it!
My husband and I had a wonderful meal Friday night during our stay at The Opryland Hotel. We loved the scallops. We both agreed that they were the best that we've ever had. We both ordered the filet mignon. Wonderful! Mashed potatoes were also great. Salads and bread were also good. We even tried the carrot cake and the caramel cheesecake. We both liked the cheesecake the best. The whole meal was very good. We will be back for sure! Excellent service. Never ran out of drinks or wanted a thing. Love seeing the water show while dining!
