Awesome wait staff made us feel very welcome. Waiter was very knowledgeable about cut of meat and what would enhance our experience. Dinner was delicious and we were extremely happy with the portions. We look forward to eating there again.

Front of house team and management service were good. Table service was just ok. Food was good, but it was slightly disappointing in regards to value. Based on my experience with other similar options in Nashville at the same price point, I would choose other options next time.

We had a great experience at the steakhouse! Our family of four had a child’s steak, a filet and a NY strip. We had a side of mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts. All were great and served in a great presentation. They brought out a piece of chocolate cake for my birthday. Tim was our waiter and was so pleasant and wonderful. All portions were large and especially enjoyed the filet!

Thank you Marriott Bonvoy! A wonderful dinner at Old Hickory Steakhouse inside the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center #Nashville. We started off with some delicate and precisely seared scallops accented with a beet reduction. Enjoyed a uniquely crafted jumbo Gulf shrimp 🍤 cocktail nestled in a wonderfully tart homemade Giardiniera that was crisp and vibrant. Next we were presented with an artisanal French onion soup with a pungent and savory layer of cheese steeped in a brilliantly luxurious and deeply savory treat. I enjoyed a prime 27oz Porterhouse alongside a beautiful butter poached lobster 🦞 tail. Ro had their filet Oscar pilled high with fresh jumbo lump crab 🦀. I celebrated every sip of a very special Whitehall Lane Leonardini Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 🍷. For dessert 🎁 we were given a decadent chocolate 🍫 fudge cake and a richly layered coconut 🥥 cake. The roar of the waterfall and light show made this patio dining experience one to remember. It exudes a Southern charm and an edification of life’s simple luxuries. This is a Tennessee must dine.

We request the same table each year with the same server, and he is the best. The whole experience is worth the money once a year in my opinion. Makes for a special evening.

If you love a great steak, this is the place you want to visit. The food is always exceptional, as is the service. The ladies in our group selected seafood, but the guys picked steak. We selected the Cowboy Ribeye, The Filet, and my choice was the 20 ounce New York Strip. It was the evening special, and came topped bone marrow butter. My steak was cooked to a perfect medium, and was almost as tender as a filet. That's a great compliment to the chef. I would highly recommend the Old Hickory Steakhouse. I always book an evening there whenever I'm in the Nashville area.

We made a special trip for our anniversary. We drove about an hour to get there. The drinks are priced a little on the higher side than they were worth but the bar staff was great. The meal was expensive. $200+ for 2 people including a couple of drinks. The steaks that were ordered were cooked perfectly and the sides were good. All in all I would say if you are here for an event, definitely try it out. Being able to make a reservation is great and the food is just as good as anywhere in Nashville. Like everything in Nashville these days, its a little over priced. Having said all of that, the staff went above and beyond to make it a good experience.

The setting felt magical. So romantic. Service was polite, professional. Restaurant itself was beautiful, reminded me of Savannah, GA. We ate “outside” the restaurant and looked at the trees. Perfect temperature. And the food was about decadent. From the appetizers to the dessert, it was delicious. Worth every penny. Cannot wait to go again.

Our waiter was amazing. Very knowledgeable on all the food on the menu, helpful picking things out. He was so kind. Best service we’ve ever received there! The food was amazing- taste, smell, quality.. everything! The atmosphere was so romantic for our 5th wedding anniversary. They had flowers and a dessert specifically for us! Best time! Definitely recommend it 5 stars and will be going back!

If you are staying at the hotel and want a nice, but pricey, meal then I would recommend. The food was very good. Just be aware that everything is a la carte so the bill gets expensive very quickly.

We have been to the Old Hickory a number of times. It is always a wonderful experience. On this trip as well as a couple of other times Tony as been our waiter. He makes the entire dinning experience very enjoyable. He is one of the best waiters that I have ever had when I visit higher end restaurants

This was our second time at Old Hickory. Our servers were all fantastic. They were quick and courteous, but never rushing us. The cocktails were amazing, the food was amazing. The only bummer was when we left. Worth every penny to celebrate a special day here. We will be back!

Outstanding service, great food. This was a day that I proposed to my future wife, plus it was her birthday on to of it all and when the staff found out they went above and beyond their duties to make this day wonderful. The waiter brought a red rose and a magnificent desert for her on this special occasion. And that was not all, the staff signed a "let's celebrate" card as all the working staff signed personally. I cannot thank you enough for making our evening more special than it was planned to be. YOU GUYS AND GALS ROCK.

Had a business dinner at Old Hickory. Service was the best part of the evening (Tony) was awesome! Food was less than stellar. Bisque was infused with potato as a thickener and made it starchy, plus it wasn't even warm. The center cut filet was a nice portion but it was ordered medium rare and came out more rare than anything, very bloody and chewy in the center. The side dish of Crab Mac N Cheese had zero flavor, in fact most of the food had zero taste, very bland! The cost of the evening wasn't worth it at all! Maybe we caught them on an off night?
