The staff was nice and very attentive. The food was good my only complaint was the Caesar Salad was nothing more than a few giant Romain leaves on a plate.

The bartender and our serving staff were wonderful. The hostess not so much. We arrived early and were told they would seat us between 10-15 minutes of our reservation. I went to the hostess with less than 10 minutes and she said it would be a few minutes longer. It ended up at the time of our reservation. The table location was not what we wanted and asked to be moved. She accommodated but wasn’t pleasant about it. This is THE high end restaurant here and the service and attention to the patrons should be higher than what we experienced from the hostess station.

Cold and breezy atmosphere, for the price of the food we expected it to be more flavorful and stand out.

Service and the presentation of the dishes was good.

The food was great although a bit cold by the time it got to our table, the place is in the middle of a hotel complex, bedroom balconies surrounding you, outdoor trees and waterfalls, so it was an u usual setting. The Aircon make it really really cold in the evening and had to ask for a shawl or something as was too cold!! Server was lovely and made the experience fab

My wife and I had a wonderful time at Old Hickory. Seated at the reservation time. Anthony our waiter was wonderful. He explained the menu and gave some suggestions. Some we took, some we didn't. My wife mentioned some things she couldn't eat and Anthony ordered her some GF bread without us asking. (We didn't know they even had it there) She had the Salmon and I had the New York Strip. We shared the Yukon Gold mashed potatoes. We had the Cream Brulee for desert. It was all very delicious. Again I cant say enough about Anthony. He was First Class... We knew going in that the prices were up there.

Paul was our waiter and he provided excellent and professional service. The other supporting staff members also did a wonderful job as well. They made us feel like we were special guests in their home.

This will always be one of our favorite restaurants and we look forward to returning as soon as we can. We were extremely impressed with Opryland Hotel, staff, food and cleanliness.

One of the greatest steaks I’ve had in long time. From the appetizer to steaks themselves. It was all delicious and perfectly cooked. If I ever come back to Nashville from Chicago I will definitely make a stop.

I celebrated my birthday at this outstanding restaurant. From the very start, the location, a Southern Plantation Home in a beautiful atrium in the Opryland Hotel created a relaxed atmosphere to led to a perfect evening. Seated next to a beautiful fountain the service was absolutely the best ever. The food was not only delicious but the presentation was awesome. I can't think of a better place for a special occasion.

Came to Nashville with my girlfriend and parents. Budget flights, but wanted at least one high end meal. We picked Old Hickory Steakhouse and picked a winner. The setting itself is worth the price of admission but the service, attention to detail, food quality, and food taste made it the perfect exclamation point to our trip to Nashville. Would definitely recommend spending a couple extra bucks and eating at Old Hickory.

Overall I would not recommend for the price. The scallops were delicious and the salads were good although not incredible and for the money they should be incredible. The cut of meat was absolutely not what it should have been for the price. I've had far better for far less money. The ambiance was unique and worth experiencing again but we'll try a different venue. Our main server was incredible! But his assistant server stunk of body odor. He was a good assistant server but his body odor was do bad it was distracting. Overall for a meal north of $200 I'll spend my money somewhere else next time.

Old Hickory Steakhouse is a great place to celebrate a special event. The surroundings are very enjoyable with a light/fountain show across the atrium and foliage all around if you sit on the patio. The food and service were both awesome and well worth the price.

One of the best steaks I have ever eaten...8 oz. Center Cut Filet with Burgundy Mushrooms...cooked medium plus. The creamed corn was absolutely delicious...the flavors tasted so good. As a treat, my husband was brought a piece of the chocolate chip mousse cake with a lit candle and Happy Birthday on the plate....just enough sweet for both of us. The waiter and wait staff were very attentive and helpful. Thank you for a wonderful 70th birthday celebration for my husband.

Delicious meal in the breath taking Delta Atrium at the Gaylord Opryland. The food is as gorgeous as the atrium and more tasty. Exceptional filet mignon and scallops seared to perfection not to mention desserts to die for. A fabulous close to our Nashville trip.

Dinner was tasty and fun. The service was very attentive - I had the filet and my friend had the bone in rib eye. I enjoyed it and the sides, but was slightly disappointed that the sides didn't come piping hot to the table. The wine list was interesting and had lots of choices.
I returned the next night and had the salmon! it was very good and the mashed potatoes were fabulous.
Go hungry, as the portions are on the large side.

We expected a high quality dining experience, unfortunately this location did not live up to expectations in a number of ways. We were seated and noticed extensive wear on the chairs in the dining area. Our waiter came over after a few minutes and we ordered a glass of wine. During our meal our waiter never asked if we wanted another glass of wine. Our waiter was not attentive and seemed more intent on his conversation with other employees. We both ordered the 8 oz fillet and neither steak was cooked to order, however, salads and sides were great.
Following the meal, we sat with dirty dishes at the table for quite some time. When we asked to take the leftovers with us, the waiter handed me a plastic box, no offer to box the food was made.
We have eaten at steak houses in many cities and our experiences were much different than Old Hickory. We are disappointed the price we paid was much more than the food or experience were worth.
One positive was the hostess that seated us, she was efficient and cordial, she is an asset to the restaurant.

No need to venture out for the best steak if you're staying at the Gaylord. In fact, those not staying here need to come. I was surprised at the quality of the food. 45 days dry aged steak, grass fed options, marrow butter, lump crab...all superior quality. Excellent service, too! My wife and I have a new favorite.

I took my wife here for our 5th wedding anniversary, and we had a wonderful time. We ordered the artisan cheese plate, 8 oz filets, salads, and shared a baked potato. To choose the cheeses for our cheese plate, we had the Maître d' Fromager, Kimberly, come to our table and give a brief description of all the different cheeses they had on the menu. She was very knowledgeable and helped us pick exactly what we wanted. She paired the cheeses with nuts, figs, and honeycomb as well as a sample of wine for each. The experience was very unique and highly recommended! The rest of the meal was cooked to perfection and delicious. Our wait staff, headed by Jorge, went out of their way to make the night extra special for our anniversary, including bringing my wife a rose. I cannot say enough great things about this restaurant and the service we received. We will definitely be visiting this establishment again!
