Old Hickory Steakhouse at Gaylord Opryland Ratings and Reviews
Frankly - owners should be ashamed of this place. Behind beautiful decor hiding an abysmal quality of food and scarcity of (good/any) menu.
While the service was good (it's the people that make the difference, right?) most dessert wines were missing, bone marrow was covered in overly salty crumbs, seafood "tower" looked like two plates of ice, with accidentally lost lonely representatives of seafood population.
Culmination was the "apple strudel cheese cake" that could proudly honor any neighborhood gas station in the Sara Lee isle - both by taste and look.
Having dined before in Marriott-owned establishments, this one definitely established an unusual low.
Our experience at Old Hickory was outstanding in terms of the food, presentation, ambiance and service. Our server was amazing and a true ambassador of the establishment. The only negative is that it is difficult to find in the hotel. There could be better signage.
Very expensive, but food and service is just excellent! Top notch! The setting is hard to beat, it's like eating outdoors but with climate control and no bugs. This is a great place to get fancy and enjoy some of the best food you will ever experience. We loved it! We were too far away to hear the live pianist due to the water fountains, but there was one!
Ate here last year and came back again. From the service to the food, everything was impeccable. Had Tony as our waiter both years. He is awesome! Great service; very attentive; interacted with us about why we were there, where we were from, etc. Great to have someone who clearly enjoys his job. Both years also got the Artisan Cheese Selection. The Maître d' Fromager is AMAZING! So passionate about her job! Awesome selection and so knowledgeable!! A great great experience from start to finish!
I was sadly very disappointed. I heard that this was a great place to eat and made a reservation as soon as I got to the Hotel. We went and the ambiance and wait staff were awesome, however, my steak was burnt and it had an awful taste. I had the New York Strip and my husband had the Porterhouse. His steak was a little better. We also ordered a baked potato that looked like all of the potato was scooped out and it looked like it was twice baked. I will not recommend this place to anyone. For the price that we paid I could have gone to a much cheaper place and been happier. I did not complain because we were in close quarters with other guests and I did not want to ruin anybody else's dinner. Thank you for asking me for my opinion.
Our reservation was for 6:45 on a Saturday night. We arrived at about 6:25 to make sure we were on time, as the hotel where the restaurant is, is quite huge and it would be easy to get lost in, more on that later. Upon checking in at the host stand, we were told that they would be seating on time in a very brisk and almost snooty manor. The restaurant was not busy, and I guess this was the p[policy of the restaurant, however the attitude wasn't needed. When we were sat our waiter and his partner came over introduced himself and was perfect, everything was great, my water glass was never empty, Every thing I asked for was taken care of immediately. When the entrees arrived they were presented, I ordered the rib-eye, rare, it was cooked perfectly, It happened to be very salty however, not overly salty as I usually add salt, but salty enough to where I didn't have to add any, and that is a lot of salt. My father and I decided to share a baked potato, this was served, and it was yellow with dark spots throughout, awful looking, upon alerting the waiter a new one was brought with the same issue, so it was cancelled, I was disappointed by this and expected much better from a restaurant supposedly of this quality. Besides the potato being bad and the meat over seasoned, everything was excellent, as far as the food and service. The ambiance here at this particular restaurant is unbelievable, the entire hotel is built around inside gardens and rivers and lakes, its something out of Disney World. The front of the restaurant looks like the mansion of an old southern plantation, the dining room is the back deck of the mansion overlooking the gardens lakes and rivers below its so phenomenal words cannot do it justice. Overall the experience was great, other than the few things I mentioned it was a great night, and Id go back again.
This was the 2nd time in 2 nights I went there. The 1st night I sat at the bar and got the cowboy ribeye med rare and the 2nd night I got a table and got the lamb porterhouse. The 5 star rating across the board stands for both nights. This place is too notch in every way, the service, the food and the atmosphere here is as good as it gets
We visited Old Hickory for a birthday celebration. The staff were extremely accomodating and very helpful dining with a 2 and 5 year old. Kids menu is not published but they do have a few options not on the menu for kids. Well behaved children would be just fine dining here. Food and atmosphere is great!
The restaurant was recommended for great steaks and we were not disappointed. We like our dinners to be experiential and it was a great experience. We started with a cheese and wine pairing. The fromage maitre'd was very knowledgeable and helpful. The waiter as well and very professional. The bone in ribeye was spectacular and the lamb superb. Great side vegetables and a HUGE chocolate mousse cake for dessert. This is a grown up place for adults who love great food and great service at a relaxed pace and don't mind paying extra for those.
We were there on our date before going to Grand Ole Opry, the seafood tower was a great choice for our appetizer, but being from Maryland, what can I say. We shared a ribeye for our entree and it was very good and overall it was a very good meal at a moderate price and we would certainly dine there again. The mashed potatoes were excellent! The garden like surroundings made it even more special.
My husband and I were visiting from Knoxville and what a treat it was for us to experience Old Hickory and Opryland Hotel.
The food was absolutely delicious. The service was warm and friendly. The atmosphere was outstanding. We enjoyed every minute!
