They charge for their steak sauce. The food wasn't that bad but definitely different. Very nice restaurant but the parking was $32.00. Don't wear heals if you are not comfortable with them it's a good ways to walk. Great service they even gave my husband a chocolate cake for his birthday.

We visited Old Hickory Steakhouse for our 10th anniversary..
We had a great experience from service (Andrew was our waiter) to food we were pleased..
The prices are a little high but I can assure you it’s worth every penny!!! The chef is fantastic.. Will be revisiting for future dinners..

Overall it was good but not a great value . The server was lacking for a high end steak house and the menu was very limited.

Food overall was great and the service was excellent. The noise level was a little loud that particular night due to a nearby event going on but still a good experience!

Great place to get away from the crowds at Opryland and enjoy a quiet, relaxing meal in a pretty setting. It is "pricey" but food is well prepared and service is great.

Great bread selection (rosemary and baguettes) with flavorful crackers with a hint of Oregano we could t get enough of and finally a place that gave us enough butter that we weren’t begging for more as usual. Great Sevice always attentive to the drinks,plates and food. Totally enjoyed our experience with our waiter Jorge!

The hostess was borderline rude and very unaccommodating. We had a party of 12, that we made 3 reservations of 4, at 8, 8:15 and 8:30... She would NOT sit us all down even though there were DOZENS of empty tables, saying that they didn't want to hit the kitchen with all our orders.... Fine! Stagger taking our orders, but let us all SIT and have a DRINK.
Absolutely ridiculous.
I would of left but we were starving and there was no other place open.
They just don't have enough restaurants for the people that come here for a convention.

Andrew was excellent and knowledgeable about his wines. Lobster Bisque very good. The scallops we’re prepared well with a spicy sauce which we didn’t care for but some may. The fillet we ordered medium rare and was delivered a bit over. Andrew offered to have it replaced but we opted not to interrupt the flow of our dinner. Lobster tail quite tasty!

Came with my girlfriend for her birthday. Mentioned on open table reservation that it was for her birthday upon arrival they greeted her with a happy birthday and had a complementary birthday cake and candle at dinner. Old Hickory House is absolutely awesome.

We expected so much more of this dinner and service for the price. Very disappointing. The venue was beautiful. We had out of town guests. Prior to dinner, while touring the gorgeous Opryland hotel, one of the guests purchased a beer. He liked it so much he then asked for that beer at the restaurant with dinner. The waiter was quite rude and condescending and told him absolutely they didn’t carry that kind of beer, despite it having been purchased a few feet away inside the hotel. Strike 1. On the waiter’s recommendation two of the guests ordered the $130 steak to share. It was not good. It was not spectacular as marketed. None of our steaks nor filets were good. There was no flavor to the meat whatsoever. In fact, I ate only a few bites and brought mine home with me to be able to season it to make it edible. Strike 2. The salads were the best part of the meal. The waiter was not. Strike 3. He started out on a bad note by insulting a guest for a simple request. The other supporting wait staff was wonderful and courteous but unfortunately we won’t be returning.

Our sever Amir was absolutely flawless! The food was phenomenal! I would highly recommend the lobster bisque for starter along with the beautiful tomahawk accompanied with lobster Mac and cheese as a main course. Don’t forget about the wine! Amir suggested a bottle of “The Prisoner” red wine blend to pair with the steak, it was like velvet in your glass the way the nodes combine with the richness of bone marrow butter. Delicious

Made reservations for dinner with two people out of our party of 4 celebrating birthdays, and also because we were going to the Grand Ole Opry immediately after dinner. The Gaylord Resort was fun to walk around and see, and the ambience at our table was great. It was perfect to seem like sitting outside, without actually sitting outside. Patrick was an outstanding server and our food was delicious, steaks cooked to perfection. Would definitely recommend if you want more of an upscale dining experience.

The food and service was excellent. The crab cake appetizer was very delicious and 95% crabmeat. The filets were tender and cooked to perfection. The sides are large enough to share. Although it was expensive, it was worth the price.

My wife and I were celebrating our fiftieth wedding anniversary and everyone at the hotel and restaurant made this a memorable experience. We were seated at a wonderful table and greeted by our waiter Wayne. He knows the menu so well and made good suggestions for our appetizers and entree. He had information and bits of trivia that he shared about items on the menu which we enjoyed. The food was exceptional; had been recommended by a friend to get the Tomahawk steak but went with the beef Wellington. It was cooked to perfection and really enjoyed the haricots vert. Creme brûlée was some of the best we have ever had. Altogether a ten plus experience.

The steaks were over cooked and of very poor quality. Outrageous price for a poor meal. We were in a time crunch for a show at Opry waiter assured us we would have plenty of time, we had 1 1/2 hours and barely made it out on time. Never again will we dine there.
