Old Hickory Steakhouse at the Gaylord Texan Ratings and Reviews
Let me start by saying this has been a favorite of my family for several years. We have been here on numerous occasions and have never had a bad experience until now. I booked the reservation through Open Table and had asked for special touches for the table for my son's birthday when we got there. To my surprise, when we arrived nothing had been done. When I asked why the hostess told me they don't do that. I made the reservation early enough in the day and she had the notes in her hand with my phone number. I feel like they could have called to let me know instead of us expecting it and be extremely disappointed when we arrived. I had also called and asked if we could bring in a very small cake and was told we could, but it would be taken to the back when we arrived and we would be charged $3 per person to cut it. We opted to do the cake at home. Our waiter was the only positive experience of our night. He was friendly and pleasant and tried to recover the mood as best he could. I have nothing but good to say about him.
Our drinks were not the usual standard quality. We noticed the menu looked a little different when we ordered. I've always ordered the shrimp cocktail for an appetizer. This time I got three small shrimp on a plate with lettuce and a smear of sauce. My son ordered a wedge salad and it was a very small wedge. It took a lot longer than usual to get our food and when we did it was AWFUL. There was no seasoning or flavor at all. I asked for medium and I got extremely well done. My steak was grey and very dry. The crab on top of my husband's steak had a very large shell still on it. I have never been so disappointed in a meal. I won't say my son's birthday was ruined but the meal was definitely not worth the $500+ we spent to make it special. I could have gone to Roadhouse, had a better steak and $450 leftover to give him for a gift. If this is the new direction of Old Hickory, I think I'll pass.
Fabulous, simply fabulous! Consumerism is so important and creating a great experience is #1 on the top of everyone's list. You did it! We reserved for my husbands birthday. Our waiter knew our names and the occasion and he created a phenomenal experience right down to the dessert. So very thankful! We will return very soon! Thank you!
I feel the quality has not been as good the last couple of times we have come. The steak did not have any char, the lobster was overcooked, & too much cauliflower with the Brussels sprouts. This used to be out favorite steak house, but for the cost for the quality is really not worth it.
This used to be my favorite at the Gaylord. NO More! My medium steak arrived RARE. The server never came back to check. After over 20 minutes the hostess noticed that I was not eating and came over. Her comment , "Oh, My!" The manager did bring me a complementary cheese tray so I would have something to eat. But, the bus boy took it away about 2 minutes later. The candied pecan I got to eat was yummy. I don't mind paying $50 for a good steak, but I much prefer it to be edible.
The pace of the meal was perfect. Our steaks could not have been cooked anymore perfect. The sides are excellent. Our waiter (Aaron) was friendly, timely and the engaging in good conversation. Try the bone-in ribeye if you want a very flavorful steak. Try the filet if you want a steak that melts in your mouth. It was a little noisy that night due to a woman with a loud irritating voice. (Not her fault or the steak houses fault but people like that should learn to talk in a lower volume in restaurants) Sorry if that sounds snooty, I'm really not. They took the creme brolee of the menu😬. Please bring it back! You can't go wrong eating there for any special occasion 👍😃
Outstanding in every way. Beautiful restaurant with great ambiance in the Gaylord Hotel in Grapevine, Texas. Our server was perfect in every way. The lobster bisque appetizer was delicious, a variety of salads was enjoyed by each of us, and the Wagyu steak that I had was so good that I really find it hard to describe. I can only say that you must try it if you ever get the opportunity. Truly the evening was a memorable experience for our family.
i've dined her often, usually impeccable but this recent visit was very disappointing ... steak (tomahawk ribeye) was subpar - nowhere near the standard i am use to enjoying at Old Hickory, sides (habenero corn and squash) were not up to the usual flavor standard and the dessert (apple tart) was absolutely terrible - had to send it back - the waiter insisted on replacing so we had the white chocolate cake (pretty tasty)
i'll go back again, but was very disappointed in that our $250 dinner was not worth the money.
Would have been all 5 star rating but they were closing for renovations and started removing tables, chairs etc whilst we were still dining, and as a final push to make stragglers leave flashed on the full lighting. Very tacky for a fantastic restaurant. I would point out that we dined there the previous evening, and it was a wonderful experience, the general manager, Andrew, with whom we had had very cordial relationship on that occasion was NOT on duty when the premature clearing of the restaurant occurred.
Fabulous evening for our party of 15. The staff was very accommodating, giving us a private dining room. Our out-of-town relatives were staying at the Gaylord, which is why we chose Old Hickory; we were glad we did. The waitstaff, especially Steve, took great care of us all night. Loved the fromage option (a cheese expert) - a fun touch. Food standouts were beef filet, scallops, mushroom side dish, and the cheese cart appetizer. The only small recommendations that I'd make - the sommelier could be friendlier; the shared, family-style side dishes were small portions, plus we had to serve ourselves (difficult for our elderly parents). Also, the food and wine prices are unreasonably high. But I'd love to eat there again.
