Steak was under seasoned, Mac & cheese was good. We lost our waiter to a large party. When with us the wait staff was very friendly.

Sam was a great server and gave us amazing recommendations. He went above and beyond for us by even giving us a birthday celebration of a free slice of cake. The steaks were cooked how we wanted them, the sides were big enough to feed 4 people, and the slice of cake was delicious!

Seen lots of reviews about this place so I booked a reservation for my wife, adult son, his girlfriend and me. We were greeted right away and our table was ready. Very nice table out on the "patio". The servers were very prompt and courteous. The ambiance is very nice. So for the look and feel of the place, its great. Yet that is not why I go to restaurants. I have to say that the food is just above average here. What they serve are nice selections. How they taste is about like an Outback steakhouse franchise. And... its VERY expensive. To be honest, all the food in Opryland is like this. Its just an effort to feed thousands of people every day as consistently as they can. There are much much better places to eat in Nashville at this price point. So, if you are staying there and want to have the visual stimulus of the restaurant, go for it. If you are an epicurean, pass on this place.

We had the pleasure of being served by Sam once again. All the years we have been visiting Oprylad Hotel, we have been blessed numerous times with Sam as our waiter at Old Hickory, we look forward to each and every time we get to see him. Always a pleasure.

Came to Nashville for my wife’s birthday. We stayed at the Gaylord and had dinner here. Service was impeccable! Amir was our waiter. I can’t say how attentive he was from start to finish. He went over everything on the menu when we sat down and offered many suggestions. My wife took him up on the crab cake appetizer and it was phenomenal. He made the night very memorable for the two of us. IF YOU EAT HERE ASK FOR AMIR!

My husband, 9 YO son and I dined here on a quick trip to Nashville. It was a very enjoyable experience once we got seated. We had reservations, but still were asked to wait about 15 minutes. Our server was excellent and helped on making it a memorable dinner for us all. The food was great and at the end we didn’t plan on dessert but our server shared that as a Bonvoy member it was free which was a nice surprise. We had already looked at the menu and expected the prices, just know before you go that this is the priciest restaurant at Opryland. But if you are looking for great food and an experience it is worth it!

Amir, our server was attentive and knowledgeable...awesome experience as always. That's why whether it be Texan, ORL, DC, etc.; Gaylord Old Hickory is one of my tops. Just still disappointed y'all haven't brought back the cheese and spirit "cart"?? What gives...let's strike up the band again and get things rolling!!

Menu selections were ample. Food was OUTSTANDING. We both had steaks, New York cut and Cowboy Ribeye and they were cooked perfectly and tasted great! Our server Jorge was excellent also, efficient, helpful, and friendly. He acknowledged that we were staying at the Gaylord to celebrate our 42nd wedding anniversary, and treated us to a dessert.

Slightly overpriced. Martinis are excellent- Wine selection is great. Salmon Oscar is is a mess; drowned is sauce and crab was tough. It is a steakhouse, however, the need to level up the options.

Service was okay but we were by the service station and had people walking in and out by us all night. Food was just okay. Sides were okay. I was expecting better.

Sorry to be negative but you asked. Will not go back.
