We enjoyed our dinner at the Old Hickory Steakhouse at Gaylord Opryland. We were seated within 5 minutes of our reservation which of course is very good. The ambience is beautiful, and the room noice was less than I expected to have. I believe part of that is attributed to COVID and separation of tables. Our waiter and his assistant were excellent, very attentive to our needs. In the open air of the dining area I felt fairly safe. My only disappointment was in the quality of a couple side items. The chef could take a lesson from Jeff Ruby’s when preparing his Caesar Salad and Brussels Sprouts. I was not a fan of the way either of these were prepared. Still, a quality experience all in all.

This was our third visit to the beautiful restaurant designed to look like you're dining in an antebellum mansion. We were seated "outside" right next to one of the lovely fountains. We had a direct view of the beautiful light show happening at the Opryland Hotel. It was magnificent! The food was delicious, especially the lobster bisque (it's the best we've ever eaten). Our server, Amir, was very attentive and accommodating without hovering or bothering. He literally enhanced our wonderful dining experience! We will definitely be returning, and will most definitely be requesting Amir to be our server!

First off, this Resturant is expensive and I knew that when I booked the reservation. That’s the only reason for the lower stars. That being said the service was impeccable and the food was amazing. My wife and I went for our 10th wedding anniversary. We don’t normally eat this fancy but it was worth every penny. The steak was amazing and the sides were great. We had two managers stop by and make sure we were having the best service. They even gave my wife and I a special dessert for our anniversary. Like I said, we would not eat here every day but it was the best steakhouse experience we have had. First time I’ve spent $200 on a meal and was happy when I did. If ur looking for a high end restaurant with great service and great views this is it!

Old Hickory has a great atmosphere for a date night. My wife and I enjoyed ourselves at the bar area first before heading to our table. The bar area has a very nice sitting are with couches, chairs, and a fireplace. When we got to our tables, the waiter came over and took our drink order immediately. He was great and very courteous. My wife got the fillet and I got the ribeye. Our steaks were cooked just how we ordered them. The food was great! I highly recommend Old Hickory Steak House!

Do NOT order the cheese plate or the New York strip. Both were extremely underwhelming. The cheese plate was literally three types of cheese with one grape, a couple slices of apple and some Ritz crackers. (We actually laughed when we saw it.) The strip was cooked correctly, but the quality of meat was terrible; definitely not high quality. If you are going to order steak, choose the filet. Although the server was friendly, the service was so slow it was aggravating at times. We've been to Old Hickory a few times, but will definitely not be going back.

Exceptional service, far above average food. Was no happy with the location of our table. There are great tables in front of the "house." Ours was off to the side in a hidden area that diminished the experience a bit...anywhere else I'd have been very happy with the table and its surroundings, it's just that this place has so much more to offer! It's not cheap, but it is an exceptional experience. Service was top notch.

We have eaten here quite a few times and always find the experience to be excellent. Unfortunately, with COVID most likely being a factor, the most recent experience was not up to the usual PAR.

Many of the items we normally ask for were not available, and even some of the items on the menu were sold out. The food we did receive was cooked fine, but very little of what we received was 'outstanding' and for the price of the bill? Not worth it.

The service was absolutely excellent. The decor is always great. I definitely recommend waiting on this place to get back into the swing of things.

The Old Hickory Steakhouse at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel is a very nice place to have dinner with friends. The service was outstanding, and the food was 5-star... steak was perfectly cooked, and each and every side dish was absolutely delicious. The only issue is the price... it is VERY expensive. Expect to spend at least $75 - $100 per person for a good steak dinner with some wine. That being said... it is a great experience and I would (will) go back and do it again (this was my second time there). Just not too often... gotta save up first.

Front of house team and management service were good. Table service was just ok. Food was good, but it was slightly disappointing in regards to value. Based on my experience with other similar options in Nashville at the same price point, I would choose other options next time.

We had a great experience at the steakhouse! Our family of four had a child’s steak, a filet and a NY strip. We had a side of mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts. All were great and served in a great presentation. They brought out a piece of chocolate cake for my birthday. Tim was our waiter and was so pleasant and wonderful. All portions were large and especially enjoyed the filet!

Thank you Marriott Bonvoy! A wonderful dinner at Old Hickory Steakhouse inside the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center #Nashville. We started off with some delicate and precisely seared scallops accented with a beet reduction. Enjoyed a uniquely crafted jumbo Gulf shrimp 🍤 cocktail nestled in a wonderfully tart homemade Giardiniera that was crisp and vibrant. Next we were presented with an artisanal French onion soup with a pungent and savory layer of cheese steeped in a brilliantly luxurious and deeply savory treat. I enjoyed a prime 27oz Porterhouse alongside a beautiful butter poached lobster 🦞 tail. Ro had their filet Oscar pilled high with fresh jumbo lump crab 🦀. I celebrated every sip of a very special Whitehall Lane Leonardini Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 🍷. For dessert 🎁 we were given a decadent chocolate 🍫 fudge cake and a richly layered coconut 🥥 cake. The roar of the waterfall and light show made this patio dining experience one to remember. It exudes a Southern charm and an edification of life’s simple luxuries. This is a Tennessee must dine.

If you love a great steak, this is the place you want to visit. The food is always exceptional, as is the service. The ladies in our group selected seafood, but the guys picked steak. We selected the Cowboy Ribeye, The Filet, and my choice was the 20 ounce New York Strip. It was the evening special, and came topped bone marrow butter. My steak was cooked to a perfect medium, and was almost as tender as a filet. That's a great compliment to the chef. I would highly recommend the Old Hickory Steakhouse. I always book an evening there whenever I'm in the Nashville area.

We made a special trip for our anniversary. We drove about an hour to get there. The drinks are priced a little on the higher side than they were worth but the bar staff was great. The meal was expensive. $200+ for 2 people including a couple of drinks. The steaks that were ordered were cooked perfectly and the sides were good. All in all I would say if you are here for an event, definitely try it out. Being able to make a reservation is great and the food is just as good as anywhere in Nashville. Like everything in Nashville these days, its a little over priced. Having said all of that, the staff went above and beyond to make it a good experience.
