It was my wife Birthday , and when I made the Reservation I let them knew it, My waiter brought her a specialty desert without him or me ever mentioning it was her birthday, that made her night. My waiter was excellent

We love Old Hickory for their steaks...but had gotten a little tired of their sides and desserts. They never changed and just got a little old. We are SO glad that we went back recently. My wife and I were celebrating an important event and we decided to go to Old Hickory. We were excited to see several new side dishes (the smashed red potatoes were outstanding ) and very happy to hear their new chef was making some seasonal changes and including local produce in his selections. Now he just needs to work the same magic with the dessert menu!

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Old Hickory. It was obvious that several large groups were at the restaurant at the same time we were there, but our Server, Jessica, did an outstanding job taking care of us as if we were her only customers. The food was delicious, and the wine was wonderful. It was everything I would expect of a Prime Steakhouse. They did a Splendid job, and my wife and I had a very nice, relaxing evening.

What a great restaurant. The service, by far, was one of the highlights of the evening. Our waitress took great care of our group of 6. We ordered appetizers, dinner as well as dessert and cocktails. Food was very good and our group enjoyed every minute. Will definitely go back when I'm in the area again!

Awesome as always. Service is above and beyond. The food is always great! We had our two young granddaughters with us-temperature was a little cool for them. Hostess Tracy brought them each an oversized wrap to use til

The service was excellent. The waiter knew the menu and wine list. The food did not disappoint. However, it was so noisy that my husband and I could not enjoy a conversation sitting directly across from each other without shouting. So much so that we skipped desert and coffee just to get out of there and away from the noise!
Not exactly how I imagined celebrating our wedding anniversary dinner when I booked the dinner reservation.

May have been understaffed, but service was lacking for the price and caliber of this restaurant. Crab cakes-cold, steak-cold, asked for bread 3 times, check came with charges that were not ours to name a few issues. Just not what we planned for the evening out.

Our experience with this restaurant has been outstanding. That is why I recommended it to our group during our stay at The Gaylord. Service was excellent as always and the food for everyone but myself was outstanding. My steak was not good. About as bad as I have ever had in a restaurant of this quality and calibre. However, everyone had a great meal together and it was a hit for our guest.

Been here many times and find it to be consistently excellent. Highlights are the Habanero cream corn and sourdough bread. They have a great winelist and the filet is one of the best pieces of meat you'll ever put in your mouth. Severs have always been on top of things but not around when you don't need them.

Food was excellent and the service was special. Young lady who assisted us was knowledgeable of the food and provided the extra touch of quality in her service. Steak was cooked exactly to our request and you could taste the quality of meat. When it came to sides she answered our questions and you could tell she enjoys what she is serving. When it came to the dessert again it was a pleasure just listing to the descriptions provided and enjoyed our conversation just how special a good dessert can be.

We knew it would be expensive, so that wasn't a problem. My filet was not very flavorful. Our waiter, Aaron, was outstanding. We will be back. Other family members frequent the place, so we went on their recommendation. Also, I forgot my reading glasses and was provided a complimentary pair. For my birthday was given complimentary creme brûlée, which was delicious. I had a Kir Royal and questioned whether the cassis was mixed with champagne & was told it was. Did not taste as though mixed with champagne, nor was it bubbly. Tasted more like a Royal, cassis with white wine. Still not convinced.

Shared the bone ribeye with DW. It was one of my top 3 steaks of the past 12 months. I never said a word as to preparation. The chef cooked it to perfection carved it off the bone but left the bone the plate for discrete gnawing. The he sliced it for serving. The steak still looked intact.
I don't really remember the rest great steak trumps all.
Waiter was top notch as well his bright and pretty Russian assistant.

We chose Old Hickory for convenience while at a conference for convenience. But it was so much more!
Great service, cool steakhouse feel, above average wine and a GREAT bone in ribeye. The maque choux corn, augratin potatoes and truffle fries--all worth a try--we will go back!

The steak I ordered was a "premium cut" of some sort and it tasted awful; I sent it back and it was replaced with their grass fed filet which wasn't much better. I had a better steak a couple of weeks ago at Texas Road house! (And it didn't cost $42.00) The lobster bisque was not bisque at all; it was very watery. The lobster tail was very good and they have an awesome wine list.
The service was excellent! Very lovely ambiance. A little pricey.
I would try the restaurant again, but be much more forceful in my decisions about keeping my mouth shut about bad tasting food.

Our service was perfect! Our server was very kind, knowledgeable about the menu and wine list, quick and funny. The food was very good! I had the filet and lobster, which was cooked perfectly with flavor and lobster was not overdone. We enjoyed the creamed corn with our meal and chocolate cake for dessert. Great wine list too. Would definitely return!

As with every aspect of the Gaylord Texan Resort, the service was excellent! Old Hickory Steakhouse featured very good steaks, the sides were good, as well as the dessert and wine list. Our server was an exchange student from Eastern Europe who is involved in a summer program here and she was a very delightful person! Overall, a good place to be if you are staying at the Gaylord Texan!

Servers brought food to table very rapidly before previous courses were finished. When I complained, she blamed it on the kitchen, but I think it had to do with when the orders were placed. My complaint made no difference. It continued to happen. I felt very rushed. The restaurant was not particularly busy. This should not happen at a fine dining establishment.

The food here is AMAZING. I had the scallops and lobster bisque and it was the BEST I have had in a long time if not ever. The service was great as always. Cannot say enough about the food at Old Hickory Steakhouse. We didn't have the steak because we are seafood eaters but the seafood was delicious. The only issue I have is every time I book here via OPEN TABLE this restaurant cannot find my reservation even though I called The Gaylord the same morning as our reservation and the customer svc person on the phone found it and confirmed. This has happened TWICE now. When we got to the restaurant for dinner they could not find my name or reservation. Luckily we were seated and have a fabulous dinner.
