    My wife and I stayed at the hotel for her birthday. Had a reservation at Old Hickory Steakhouse. If you have never been to the Gaylord in Orlando, the overall setting could not be more beautiful. Your eating on an outdoor porch over looking a tropical paradise. Our waiter, Brian, was fantastic and knowledgeable. We brought a bottle of out favorite Brunello with us that we had purchased in Tuscany. The steaks were done perfectly and the side mushrooms was to die for. Dessert was gratis since it was her birthday. The hotel restaurant manager Brian C. came by the table and we discussed the dinner and wine. A 5 star experience

    I've eaten at Old Hickory Steakhouse several times before and have never been disappointed therefore I felt it would be appropriate to host my wife's birthday with her children & grandchildren. Again, I was pleased with all aspects of the experience. Our waiters couldn't have been more pleasant and accommodating either.

    I wanted to provide my family a memory for their last day of vacation and the old hickory steakhouse did just that. The setting of the restaurant and the hotel was amazing. Each course of our experience was better than the last. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the service was very good. We never had to wait for our drinks to be refilled nor did we feel rushed in between courses.

    Food and service were good, but a little too on the expensive side for what you get. Appears to cater more toward the business traveler at the convention center on an expense account. $250 for two people included 2 salad, 2 steaks, 1 shared side, 1 shared desert and 1 glass of wine each.

    My husband and I were first introduced to Old Hickory when we went to Nashville TN. We went for my birthday and we are now determined to make it to each of their 3 locations, (on special ocassions due to the rich atmosphere). Old Hickory will always be our favorite date night out with the sweet, romantic ambiance. The food is indescribably delicious and we haven't ever had a bad order. My husband and I went to the Kissimmee location for his birthday and when we thought we were finished and ready to go, out comes a dessert prepared for him with a candle on top. The service was amazing, paying attention to our needs but not overdoing it. We cannot wait for our next visit with the Old Hickory Steakhouse!

    food and prices were comparable to Ruth chris/ mortons. nice selection of sides. blue cheese topping was disappointing and over priced for the quality .lobster mac n cheese excellent. Filet cut of meat was excellent and cooked properly. Service was OK , a bit slow and inattentive . Overall a good experience. This restaurant is in a hotel and they were welcoming to children. No kids menu but had options that work for them.

    I was meeting a special lady for the first time, using open table I was able to tell the restaurant about this special occasion and order flowers. The service, attention to detail and evening was exceptional due greatly in part to the old hickory staff and open table. I can't say enough about how wonderful everyone was, she was impressed.

    The food at this steakhouse is very good and sometimes excellent but you'll have to pay dearly for the experience. My wife started with the Seared Tuna Loin (excellent) and my daughter started with the Waygu Carpaccio (best ever!). My daughter and I ordered the Petit Filets (good) and my wife had the half rack of Lamb (excellent). The food and service overall were very good but I would save this for a special occasion.

    Various representatives hosted six or so customer dinners over the three evenings of the convention. Being on property, the locale is great and because of the atrium, both indoor and outdoor tables are possible, all with climate control. You feel comfortable from the moment you arrive, service is spot on, and a knowledgeable wine staff provides added benefit. Brian, the restaurant manager is extremely customer focused, assisting in any way possible to make you and your clients comfortable.

    We celebrated my husbands birthday with another couple here while at a convention at the hotel as well. Juan was our server and he was wonderful, had great suggestions for food and wine. No one rushed us, I think we were there for 3 hours and really enjoyed the food and the whole dining experience.

    Very over-rated and overpriced. The steaks were average, at best. My cowboy steak was tough and average, and undercooked for medium. The lobster bisque was very nice, but is served in a small CUP for $10! The sides were miniscule and overpriced at $10 each. The sauteed spinach was very salty!!! Disappointing as I was looking forward to a nice steak experience!

    It is a cross between the Rain Forest, Jungle, Botanical Garden and Paradise.....never have we experienced a more fascinating environment for dining! Our family spent Easter Sunday at OLD HICKORY and our grandchildren now want to spend every holiday there with us- game on! We felt like we were sitting in a tree house- it was unique and fabulous. Our waiter, Kim, was accommodating to the children's needs and palettes, and encouraged the adults to make wonderful beverage and menu choices. The timing was excellent and the presentation, temperature, and flavors were superb. Pricey? Yes- but worth every penny! LOVED it! Looking forward to a return trip asap! Thank you!!

    We had heard rave reviews from many friends, we were very disappointed. We went for our anniversary which Old Hickory was aware of. Seated us at a 4 seat table next to a family with two young active children in their bathing suits. I asked if they had a smaller table hoping they'd take the polite hint that maybe something a little more intimate for our anniversary. There were plenty of more open tables. Waiter was negative several times. Always trying to up-sell. Tuna appetizer lacked flavor, meat was not cooked as requested & lacked flavor. Lobster bisque soup and lobster mac and cheese both lacked flavor. To conclude they brought us an "anniversary dessert" it was a very nice touch but it was stale.
