The food was great and our waiter Paul was fabulous. He gave great food recommendations and was very attentive . Paul’s assistant Francis did great and was prompt at filling our drinks and clearing our table. The filet, scallops and risotto were delicious !

When we ate here in the past it felt so special and the steaks were to die for. This time it felt more like we were at a big convention and catering was trying to serve 1000 people at the same time. It was just not as sophisticated in flavor or and our meats were not cooked to exact temperatures. The cheese plate although delicious was comically small portions spread out on a big plate. My husband made a joke that it did not even include a whole grape- the grape was sliced into four thin slices. So maybe half of a grape? lol The pear compote was delicious- but only a table spoon or so. There were maybe four thin slices of pear, and maybe four ounces of 3 kinds of cheese served with maybe 12 crackers that looked like they came out of a box. The pear compote was the highlight of the plate but for $21 I needed either more food or a better presentation. Everyone was nice but it felt forced and low quality. At $100 per person before beverages I expected more (one app and two entrees). So if we come to the hotel again we will try a different restaurant.

My wife and I stay at Opryland Hotel once a year and always go to Old Hickory for a ”yearly” treat. They are always great but using the Open Table App was even better because they already had a list of my wife’s extensive food allergies.

Everything was so nice. The service was outstanding. We had a few issues with our reservation, but the front lady was so nice and found us a table within 15 minutes. The food was outstanding and our water was phenomenal! She was on her game with refills, making sure we were taken care of, explaining the menu, and even brought the most amazing slice of cake to us at the end! Will definitely be going again when we return to Gaylord Opryland!

The food was delicious! I recommend the lobster bisque (it’s their specialty), splurging on the bone marrow butter, the Mac and cheese, Brussels sprouts, and corn pudding.

This was our first time eating at the Old Hickory Steakhouse and it did not disappoint. Our server’s were friendly and knowledgeable, our steaks were some of the best steaks we’d ever had, the baked potato was amazing good and the Mac & Cheese was to die for! Hands down one of the best meals we’d had in a very long time.
The portion sizes are huge...one entree is enough for two people.
The atmosphere is lovely and we both enjoyed it.
Overall I would most definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone!

Excellent steaks. 3 of us had beef tenderloin which were great. One had a sirloin which was also good. Sides included cream spinach which had an unusual flavor I could not identify. It was good but.. better at Ruth's Chris. Mashed potatoes were delicious. Also the wedge salads looked great as did lobster bisque. I had the french onion soup which was very good. Overall very good. Our check for 2 people was $156. One alcoholic drink in that tab. Typical for this type of resturant. Atmosphere was excellent and the service was excellent also.

The filet mignon was wonderful! My only recommendation would be to offer smaller sides. My son wanted macaroni and cheese and I wanted carrots. We only ate 1/3 each. I realize they are “shareables” but two people don’t always like the same things. Pricey but very good!

Great restaurant with great ambience and excellent service. The food was excellent!
For two of us having a steak dinner with no appetizer and one side plus tip came to $200! The food should be with sides instead all all a cart to bring the price down.

For it being a high end restaurant - have a dessert cart go around with more selections, Better breads with olive oil.

A great steakhouse inside the beautiful Opryland hotel,we weren’t disappointed at all. Would love to see smaller cuts on the menu like a flank steak for smaller appetites but the meal was delicious

Food was brought out before finished with salad. This should not happen at a finer restaurant. Steaks were Warm but not hot, seemed like they had been sitting for a while. The bisque sauce that they poured on the lobster potatoes was cold which made them tough to eat, it made them runny. The steaks had NO flavor whatsoever. could not get the waiter to get a second glass of wine, so we decided get to finish and leave. when waiter finally brought check, he laid it down quickly and never did come back to table. The only accommodating person was Roger. I will never recommend this poorly run and poorly untasteful restaurant to anyone. I have a passion for outstanding steakhouses
and I would not even put in my top 30 places.
