Old Hickory Steakhouse
Mother's Day BrunchMy brother and I treated our Mother to their Mother's Day Brunch Special and she loved it!! Kudos to the violinist and the guitarist who played wonderful music throughout our dining session. Definitely will consider coming back again not just for special occasions.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMom's Birthday dinnerI grew up in the area so i was ecstatic about the National Harbour opening and I haven't been disappointed. Old Hickory Steakhouse is a great space with beautiful views and is a great setting both for couples and for groups. The service was fantastic with knowledgeable, friendly courteous waitstaff. I will definitely go back - the views were fantastic as well.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect birthdayWe were greeted immediately with a Happy Birthday and the service was excellent from the start. Excellent table, our waiter Marvin was great and instrumental in getting a happy birthday song sang to my boyfriend for his 50th birthday. The atmosphere was impeccable and the food was superb. It was a truly great dining experience.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Great ExperienceOld Hickory Steakhouse is a consistent destination for a great dining experience. Their food is always flavorful and prepared to specification, the drinks are top shelf, and the river view is beautiful when you get the right table. We always request Andrew as our server for his perfect mix of personal attention, professional skills and spot-on recommendations. We recommend plenty of appetizers and desserts, but the cheese cave is the highlight. The "Cheese Lady" is a delight with her presentation, knowledge and advice. We order a selection of three cheeses each for an appetizer and for desert.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMServiceWe had a client meeting with eight attendees. The room was good for conversation, food was outstanding and staff was knowledgeable, entertaining and very observant (didn't interrupt at important times of conversation). The only downside was that one side of table did not have individual chairs so some were uncomfortable with little back support (though there were pillows) (also this was just our seating and not all). Being located in a Gaylord Property in the National Harbor doesn't hurt as well for ambiance. Nice job and would recommend!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were both excellent, but special recognition should go to the cheese matron. She knew not only her cheese selection but from our choices of a few favorites put together a wonderful selection.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I truly enjoyedMy wife and I truly enjoyed our experience at the restaurant. It was an inviting and subtle atmosphere but gave us that wow factor. We completely enjoyed the service and the food was amazing. We will defiantly return and will absolutely recommend the restaurant to others. I can't stop talking about how delicious that steak was....4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMStellar (again)!Outstanding dinner experience. Most hotel restaurants are marginal or just plain bad, but this was excellent in every way. Went to another Old Hickory restaurant at the Gaylord in Nashville several months ago and it too was excellent. The DC restaurant is beautiful in black & white decor and the service and food couldn't have been better.
*wedge salads were great (thick crispy bacon to DIE)
*Filets were cooked and seasoned perfectly
*garlic mashed potatoes were so smooth and cramy and mushrooms were delicious
*carrot cake was very good

Be prepared for high quality steaks cooked to perfection. Be sure to save room for dessert. Our table of 7 racked up a healthy bill of $1,100.00 which was about 25% higher than expected.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMwent for the artisanal cheese.went for the artisanal cheese. great cheese, good list of dessert wines to choose from.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were celebrating our anniversaryWe were celebrating our anniversary and from the moment we entered the restaurant the staff made the night special.

The crab cake appetizer was outstanding - one of the best in the area. Don't miss out on the cheese course - a perfect way to start or end your meal.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome place, great foodAwesome place, great food for meet lovers. It's worth to pay the price3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good meal. Both steakVery good meal. Both steak and seafood. Shrimp cocktail were the biggest we have ever seen. Chef has a way of bringing out the natural flavor of the food, not masking it with sauces and a lot of spices or herbs.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWas disappointed that havingWas disappointed that having made a reservation, I was not seated until 10" after my reservation. Our server was enjoyable, interactive, and helpful. It was louder than I expected, as it was based on a "house" model of a steakhouse with rooms about 2x the size.
The crispy Brussel Sprouts side is a MUST try, especially if you think you do not like Brussel Sprouts. Would also have liked a sommelier to discuss wines with3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat SteakMeal was excellent. I find it hard to find a place that can cook a steak to my liking. I ordered medium-well, with just a little pink, and that's exactly how it was prepared. I was impressed.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMCall ahead to check....Our waiter was amazing! He went out of his way to make us feel special. The cheese was fabulous! My complaint is the main courses and side dishes were only ok. For the price that you are paying it should be really good food. Instead, we got mediocre food. I am the type of person that plans ahead, so I looked at the menu before deciding which restaurant we would go to. Old Hickory had a great menu online, but nothing was the same when we went there. If I had known that was the menu, I wouldn't have gone. All in all, the waiter was great, the food....not worth the price.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.Excellent food and service. Our waiter Andrew was professional and fun, knew his wines and served our needs extremely well. Suprise for a hotel restaurant especially in this hotel.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe customer service and foodThe customer service and food were outstanding. We had a party of 6, and the staff was attentive and friendly. Our waiter was able to make wine recommendations for our meals, the cheese selection and presentation was excellent, and the main course was served promptly after appetizers. Although the restaurant was busy, we never felt rushed or forgotten. Great dining experience overall.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
