Old Hickory Steakhouse at the Gaylord Texan reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Kitchen Oops

    Our waiter, Barbara, was entertaining and appropriately attentive. When the kitchen "fell behind", she offered complimentary drinks or appetizers to hold us over. She went the extra mile to be accommodating . . . with our food and beverage choices. Although the food was well worth the wait, she singlehandedly kept the evening on positive note instead of us leaving with a sour taste about how long the food took to be served. Ambience is a lot like a wine cellar, the restaurant is fully capable of being a private spot for two or host to a group. Food was absolutely delicious. And wait staff like Barbara makes a world of difference!

    The hotel service and overall experience was "OK", BUT, the evening from pre dinner cocktail, service, through the meal was outstanding. More than we expected. Jaime our waiter was so professional, yet personable. Made our 26 yr anniversary celebration extra special. The meal could not have been better, This will be a regular for "extra special" occasions for us.

    Really enjoyed the restaurant located inside of the Gaylord - fun to walk through this grand hotel to get to our destination too! My only complaint was that the menu was somewhat limited - particularly in the appetizer category. I would have liked to see some more share-able appetizer options for our table of 10. We were celebrating a milestone birthday and the waitstaff were attentive without being pushy and the food was delicious.

    Dined on 11/18/2014
    This restaurant is beautiful and the service friendly, polite and professional. This is a steak place so we had two different cuts at our table done to our requests. Sides must be ordered for the table. The bread is freshly baked, the wine choice is extensive, and the salads interestingly presented. The quality of meat is excellent. I had the rib eye and you hardly needed a knife to cut it. It was soft and tender. But on the first bite the taste of salt made me pucker. The two sides we had were either too salty or peppery. When you have good quality ingredients it isn't necessary to overwhelm with salt and pepper which could be added by the customer to taste.

    Old Hickory Steakhouse was the perfect setting for the beginning of a romantic weekend at the Gaylord Texan and the Marine Corps Birthday Ball. It was my girlfriend's first Marine Corps Ball and I wanted to entire weekend to be special. I decided to treat her to an elegant dinner at Old Hickory Steakhouse. It was our first time at the Gaylord and the restaurant. The service was fantastic, food was exceptional and the wine list was great. That night set the tone as to how the rest of the weekend would go. Thank you to our server, Binh, and the rest of the staff.

    I chose this restaurant to celebrate my birthday with some family and close friends. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. The grass fed sirloin was absolutely heavenly and they have a decent cheese board selection. Although I did not get to try any of their wine I could see by the selection that it was very well curated. The decor is warm and inviting...definitely a place for a romantic evening or special celebration. I would certainly go back.

    A dinner for 2 with just one glass of wine each resulted in a bill of $150.00. However, it did not come as a surprise, the menu with prices is posted. My friend had pork chops, I had lamp chops and while my friend said the pork chops I cook are better, my lamb chops were supurb.

    Dined on 10/5/2014
    When we visited, we were seated in a corner which had the brunt of the air conditioning coming down. We moved our table out as far as possible and mentioned it to the waiter, but nothing was done. It was freezing in the corner to the point where not only were we cold (and I'm like a polar bear most of the time), but our food quickly got cold. It was very loud so if you're looking for a nice, romantic, quiet dinner, this isn't it. The food was excellent, great wine selection, and friendly staff. Had we been wanting a loud, "energetic" atmosphere and didn't have the problem of sitting in the arctic blast, it would have been a very good experience.

    For the premier restaurant at the Gaylord we would have expected a lot better. The three steaks we ordered were not good. The filet was over-cooked and the other two prime rib-eyes were tough. We should have been asked to cut into our steaks. We should have said something but we didn't want to ruin the evening. The scallops were very good. We won't return, the Italian restaurant has been very consistent.

    Michael, our waiter, was superb, and besides being very personable was very knowledgable about the wine list and menu. When I mentioned that it was chilly at our table, he returmed with a beautiful pashmina for me. My husband got the Filet, and I got the bone-out Ribeye. They were both cooked to perfection, and could have been cut with a butter knife. This was probably the best steak I have ever had, both in cook and flavor. The lobster bisque was fantastic, but so rich as to be filling before the steak even arrived. Scallops and sides were wonderful. Quite pricey but worthy of a special occasion. We'll be back.

    Had the bone-in ribeye and it was excellent. Good wine choices too. I like the pay by the ounce bar that is located above the Steakhouse. Be sure to go early enough to have a couple of ounces of high end wine and some cheeses.

    I have had steaks at some great places in Dallas but have to say the steak at Old Hickory Steakhouse is the best in Dallas. We have been dining here for the past 4 years and still remains my favorite in all Dallas. The waiting staff is over the top in everyway making our dining experience one we will always remember. I give them a 10 rating. Way to go Old Hickory!

    I needed to move my reservation time and they did so no problem. The food was excellent. My rib eye was cooked perfectly (rare) and my scallops were plump and seasoned just right. We also had the habanero cream corn and truffle fries....both were tasty. Our server was very attentive and gave us great suggestions. We were there for a convention, but if I ever come back this will be one place I will make sure to eat at again.

    The other restaurants at the Gaylord are wide open and you can see the ambiance as you make your choice. The Old Hickory is more of a mystery. But down the elegant stairway you wine a clubby, but not stuffy elegant wine cellar atmosphere. In fact our group was seating in the actual wine cellar. That setting along with the excellent food, fabulous wine and attentive service made for a memorable evening.

    The ambiance was nice except for a little on the noisy side. Service was good. The food was lacking, especially for the price range. Tenderloin was tender but not flavorful. The sea bass was bland and a little fishy. Dissert which was the carrot/cheese cake was not fresh. Was a little disappointed.

    The steak was excellent, but we were hoping for a quiet romantic, reasonably-priced dinner, and this is just not the place for such. The best I could tell, this is a place for rich, loud, carousing, drinking party people. Maybe we are just too old for it.

    My wife and I spent the weekend at the Gaylord Texan celebrating our birthdays. I booked a romantic dinner at the Old Hickory Steakhouse and we had an amazing time. From the time we walked downstairs to dessert the wait staff provided incredible personal service. Thank you to the entire staff for making a great memory for us. We had both steak and seafood and it all was delicious. The wine list is extensive, so they have something for everyone. Thanks again for an amazing experience.

    Initially disappointed was seated in waiting area by the bar and would have expected to be offered the chance to buy a drink. Seated after 10-15 mins. Fr then on service was outstanding. They comp'ed us outstanding appetizers. Lobster bisque was incredible. The reason I didn't rate 5 star on food was the ribeye. Outstanding cut of meat. Cooked perfectly but had an odd almost marinated taste. Good steak overall not great. Would I I back. Yes

I had the rack of lamb. I wished it was all you can eat. My wife had the salmon and she loved it as well. Chef came out to ask us about our meal. Made us feel like we were a guest at his home. We will be back.
