    Porterhouse was so dry and over cooked. I ordered it medium and it practically was well done. Hardly any pink. It was hard to chew. Also ordered half a rack of lamb and only got two ribs. How is that half a rack? The chocolate cake is 15 bucks for a really plain chocolate cake you can get at the local grocery store. For this amount of money the expectation was high and it was a let down. The service was great and ambiance is nice but the food was a let down. We did get the lobster mash potatoes and that was the star of the night. It was great. It just feels like they got the chef from IHOP pancake house. Won't go again.

    The steaks had no taste, seasoning was very salty and the sauces were not eatable. One of worst steaks I have ever eaten. The bacon on the Baked potato was just chunks of very tough meat. My Granddaughter ordered roasted carrots haven’t seen anything that looked like that ever surely didn’t look like a carrot. We will never go back again.

    Overall a great experience, except one main course. My wife and I started with the lobster bisque which was amazing. My wife ordered the rack of lamb which was cooked to perfection and tasted great. She accompanied it with a side of cream corn and baked potato, which both are large enough for three people. My main course was the chef's special which was a 16 oz, 30 day aged ribeye with a compound butter on top. I ordered it medium rare, it came to the table rare, and the two pads of compound butter on top of the steak were ice cold, I mean just above freezing, and they did not melt on the steak which made taking a bite of steak with ice cold compound butter all but enjoyable. I sent the steak back and asked to have it grilled to a medium rare. It came back to the table a perfect medium rare. The steak was hard to cut and was not tender at all for a $85 dollar, 30 day aged ribeye. The flavor of the steak was not remarkable either. A 30 day aged ribeye should have a rich beef aged flavor. This steak cut and tasted like a cheap piece of meat. The ambiance of the restaurant is very nice. We were seated outside on the patio at the far end which was not ideal. If you ever visit, ask to be seated in the house or outside on the patio near the house so you can enjoy the live piano music. Being seated at the far end of the patio you lose this beautiful ambiance and will not hear the piano music.

    The meal was a disappointment for the price. Super expensive. Server, hostess and all staff were impeccable. For the price, I assumed the chef would understand how to cook a steak and that was not the case.

    The atmosphere is very nice. The drinks are wonderful. The food was pretty good- although our steaks were over cooked (rare was medium And medium was well done). Still had food flavor. Waiter, Brian was excellent. Our table of four has a lot of catching up to do and this was a great place to do it. Bar service and staff were amazing!

    Kellie, our server, was amazing!!! My daughter's boyfriend joined us and has never eating at that type of restaurant, so he was intimidated. She asked he what he liked about steak and suggested the porterhouse, which he DEVOURED with joy! Kellie was very personable and enjoyable to chat with. We have tried to go to this restaurant for 2 years while attending the KLOVE weekend, but our schedule did not permit until this year - and it was worth it!!!! The food was divine and filling (even for 3 growing teens with black hole stomachs). We will be back! and have recommended to many people staying at the hotel.

    The food was fantastic and our waiter, Sam, was the best! He was very aware of my wife’s food allergies point out anything that she might have issues with. He overheard us talking about our anniversary. He went to the bakery and brought out a dessert that he had made made sure didn’t have anything in it that my wife was allergic to. We appreciate you, Sam!

    As always the food and service at Old Hickory Steakhouse was superb. We were celebrating our 40th Wedding Anniversary dinner and were a bit surprised that with this occasion and a $600 dinner we weren’t given a small dessert or token from the server or manager. Great food and atmosphere, just a little surprised that no acknowledgement of our 40th Anniversary that’s all.
