Absolutely OUTSTANDING EXPERIENCE! Our waiter Paul was an absolute professional who provided us with amazing recommendations from the wine to sides and even after dinner port. Oh, forgot to mention their steak was simply out of this world. No doubt their 1000 degree broiler took the preparation over the top. It was an experiential meal for sure and one we will remember for years to come!

Nice evening during the Imaging USA show.
We started with a nice bottle of pinot noir from The Four Graces.
My wife’s salad was huge so we split it.
Our NY strip steaks were cooked perfectly and the side of mushrooms were very flavorful. The baked potato was so big we were able to share it too.
Nice atmosphere...we enjoyed an after dinner drink in the adjoining library by the fireplace.

The steak was no better than Texas Roadhouse or Outback and much more expensive. The Mac and cheese was okay, baked potato good and the wedge salad was terrible.

Great steak house inside the hotel. Seating is open air but inside the atrium for the feeling of outside but you are inside. A little loud, but all in all a great spot. Its a long walk from the lobby, so be prepared for that.

Incredibly good service and excellent steaks. Your wallet will be lighter at the end of the evening, but you will still be raving about the meal days later.

We visited on New Years with a reservation. The restaurant had few people with the holiday and we still were sat outside near the wall without a view and no one around us. The cheese expert/server was off work without anyone there to describe or serve the cheeses. My husband’s filet was luke warm and dry. The table also wobbled all through the meal. The chairs were worn and the leather was peeling & cracked. As we were sat, the hostess walked us by three chairs that were broken, but still in the egress. It all may seem nit picky, but with the prices we paid, it was subpar. The location inside Grapevine is much nicer and worth the money. We will not be visiting this restaurant in Nashville in the future. The funny thing was the gondola captain also joked about the prices for the restaurant saying he liked to tell folks if they wanted to spend $4,000 per night on the presidential suite, they could also afford a meal at Old Hickory.

The service was awful- waiter forgot my kids drinks. We asked for a glass of house red and he gave us a glass of something that was $25 each. I was underimpressed considering prices are comparable to Capital Grille

It was fairly expensive, but you know that going in. Food was incredible. We had to leave early to catch a movie, told our waiter, and he expressed all our food - it was great! Would highly recommend.

This is a great place for an elegant meal. Wayne, our server, was fantastic and the food was excellent. It's pricey, but about what you would expect for a top-end steakhouse. The atmosphere with the lights and plants and fountains is really unique and enjoyable.

The ambiance was wonderful. Food was very good. We ordered 2 sides & had too much to eat. Next time we plan a stay at Opry Resort in Nashville we will dine at Old Hickory Steakhouse.

Server did an excellent job and was very apologetic for the steak which was ordered medium rare and came out charred on outside with now flavor. My daughter order the Mac n cheese as a side, and it was bland with no flavor and very little cheese. Our server did comp my steak and the Mac n cheese but very disappointed when you expect an excellent meal.

The food and atmosphere were really good, but overall, it was very overpriced. There are better steakhouses in Nashville. One note - the sides are family style and steaks are a la carte. We were a party of 2 with very different tastes in sides, so the family style made it tough for us to both be happy with our choice.

However, if you’re staying at the hotel on a busy weekend, it was nice to have the reservation and dinner in a quieter part of the hotel. We were there on a holiday weekend and Everywhere else was a zoo. The quiet dinner was a welcome break even if it was over priced.

This was the perfect place to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary dinner. They gave me a red rose at the table and then gave us a piece of chocolate cake with a happy anniversary message written on the plate in chocolate. It was wonderful!

Soup, salad and steak were delicious. I had the roasted carrots that were not. They were not peeled so seemed tough on the outside and not cooked through and with little sauce on the dish. Suggest sides to be in smaller portions. I was dining alone and hated to waste even the unappetizing carrots!

My husband and I have made a tradition of having our Christmas Eve Dinner at Old Hickory Steakhouse and then walking through the hotel afterwards. Great food and waiters are the best.
