    As always Old Hickory never disappoints. The service and food are delightful and delicious. We began the dinner with lobster bisque soup and shrimp cocktail. We moved on to dinner with selections of crab cakes, lobster, filet of beef and the cowboy rib eye. Our sides were poblano corn, whipped potatoes and sautéed mushrooms. We ended this fine meal with creme brûlée, chocolate torte and a selection of cheeses. Every steak was cooked to perfection and every part of the meal was perfectly executed. The wine selection is extensive as is the cheese. Wonderful steakhouse!!! You should try it.

    This is the second time I have been to Old Hickory when in the Gaylord Texan. I made a point of coming back to this restaurant and asking for the waiter from 5 years prior, Joseph, as he and the food were exceptional. Wonderful service with knowledge and a bit of fun. This time I had the cheese plate as an appetizer. The selections were exceptional! I had the surf and turf with the steak being cooked perfectly and the lobster some of the sweetest I have ever had. We ended with the chocolate souffle. As it was the time I had been prior, it was a memorable evening of exquisite dining and service.

    My wife and I like to stay at the Gaylord for our anniversary. This meal was one of the best I have ever had in all of North Texas. I have followed Anthony, sommelier, for over 15 years and he has always shined and that night he had a low production cab, with a single 2007 bottle that he was obviously saving for special guests. Amazing wine! Our waiter David, recommended a special martini that my wife loved. Next the cheese cart, we selected the 3 cheese package and they were perfect. Split a caprese salad, which was a delight to the eyes as well as the mouth! Prime rib eyes cooked perfectly, crisp asparagus and habanero mac had great a zing to it! No desert as we were done! Every element of the dinner that was amazing!

    My wife and I had our first dinner at the Old Hickory last Friday night. We did enjoy the experience and are planning to return with friends in the next few weeks. Our waitperson, Jamie, was one of the best I have encountered. He was very professional, attentive to detail, and genuinely concerned with providing us with a great dining experience. The food was prepared very well with the exception of my steak that was too well done. The soufflé was terrific. I suggest that the selections for wine by the glass should be expanded. It would seem that you could make better use of the inventory in the wine bar on the floor above your restaurant. Thank you!

    Everytime we go to this fabulous restaurant we always have the same fantastic service ...Their unbelieveable Great Steaks are very tasty and since they are such ample servings we always split the Prime Cowboy Ribeye and they are gracious to serve it up on two separate plates at your request. Only thing I wished for is if they would have served baked potatoe or a sweet potatoe for a healthier choice. Mashed potatoes are more for "small fries" but the Habinero Corn was Great (ITS SPICY SO WATCH OUT) That is a very very minor thing...just my opinion to make it absolutely flawless!

    I highly recommend this restaurant as I had one of if not the best meal of my life. Started with the caprese salad which was very good with the heirloom tomatoes and rich mozzarella. The porterhouse with the bacon blue cheese crusting was easily the best steak I've ever had. The table sides ordered were the habanero cream corn which was exceptional and the asparagus that was cooked perfectly. For desert the grand marnier soufflé was phenomenal without being too filling since I was already quite full from the rest of the meal.

    Beautiful setting and warm ambience. Sashimi appetizer-the quality was good but the portion was very small even for an appetizer. The pear and endive salad was amazing. The citrus vinaigrette was a great compliment to the other ingredients. The endive was not bitter and instead was crisp and understated as it should be. We had pork shop and cowboy ribeye at our table. Both were sizeable in portion, but great disappointments in taste. My steak was cooked exactly as I ordered and the quality of the meat was good, but there was no personality to it. The pork chop was the same. We have no problems paying an expensive price for a great dining experience. This place is expensive and we had a very forgettable experience here.

    Ordered the prime cowboy ribeye. The meat was cooked properly but was very tough. It was definitely not a prime cut. The sides were very good and the service and ambiance were also good. It was very disappointing to pay such a high price for a cut of meat that was hard to eat.

    We were disappointed from the get go. As a couple the main seating is in a row of tables with one person on the bench and the other on a chair across. This means you have little privacy. There are conversations going on to your right and left and your table is tiny. Secondly, the food was just ok. We really enjoyed the cheese selection and our salads. The steaks and desserts were just ok. Our waiter was incredibly slow which was fine after we got our bottle of wine. The wine bar looks far more inviting. If we go again, it would be there. Disappointing night celebrating our anniversary.

The 22oz ribeye steak was perfectly done and more than adequate for both of us. It was a very memorable experience and we will definitely be back!

    For Valentine’s Day dinner, my wife & I selected Old Hickory for its overall experience. We have enjoyed this restaurant on several special occasions & always very pleased each time there. I chose the salmon & my wife the filet mignon along with habanero corn, asparagus, & whipped potatoes. The wait staff, Kristen, was prompt, polite & always there when you wanted something. The only shortcoming is we were seated by the kitchen entry & was a bit lout, but did not interfere with our evening. The restaurant was very busy & they got us seated at reservation time & allowed us to take our time & not rush us out. Recommendation – First class place to take that special person in your life to celebrate a wonderful event.

    We are always a little skeptical about restaurants in convention hotels, however Old Hickory was outstanding! The steak was excellent as were the mushrooms and other sides. The service is a bit slow and then we felt a little rushed, however the steak made up for it. I am not a big red meat eater so when I do, I really want it to count! This was excellent. We tried the Ribeye, the Filet and the bone in Strip, all excellent! The carrot cheesecake was dissapointing and the salads were underwhelming, but the steak was great!
