Old Hickory Steakhouse at the Gaylord Texan Ratings and Reviews
We have come for our anniversary for the last 5 yrs. Disappointed in the before dinner bread assortment and desserts. Didn't think the steak was worth the price and I couldn't eat the bigger steaks. I better dessert selection before. Bill was significantly higher than last visit, and we had dessert then. The other times we were there they made a mention of our anniversary, nothing said this time. Over all disappointed, then we will go somewhere else next year.
The prices have gone up significantly from the last time we dined there. And the quality did not follow the increase in prices. I had the boneless ribeye and it was no better than the sirloin steak I enjoy at the Texas Roadhouse restaurant. And of course, the price is much cheaper. Whoever supplies the steaks is not providing the prime steaks that you expect for $50-plus. My wife had the cod and she was not impressed by that dish either, saying the fish had little flavor/taste. Her sister had the lamb, and she really liked the lamb. We all (3) I was expecting at least a wedge of cheesecake at the very least.decided to share the "cheesecake" dessert. When it arrived, it was served in a broken top spherical chocolate shell. Inside was a piece of cheesecake the size of a $0.50 cent piece. The three of us barely had enough to taste the cheesecake. And the price was a whopping $12!
The food was excellent and our service was great and would recommend anyone give this place a try, service when we arrived was not very good, not the most polite and left us standing thinking we were about to be seated which actually took 15 minutes after our reservation time, even though there were plenty of empty tables! while the prices are on the high side and the greeting was not the best, the food and table service makes it worth a visit for that special occasion
11th yr to eat there and this was the worst tasting that we remember. The ambiance and the service is excellent but the steak was sub par. We have had steak here that was excellent, but this time it was tough and overpriced. I dont think we will return for a 12th yr.
Service was outstanding. We were there on Christmas Eve and it was super crowded so they had to take in customers even 20 mins before the closing time. However the services and the waiters were superb and magnificent! We really enjoyed the dinner experience there. However the foods were just average. We ordered a rib-eye on medium-rare but it was a little overcooked and tasted dry. Lobster portion was small and over-priced but very delicious.
Overall was nice experience. Good for special occasions or if you are just looking for some places nice to dine in.
We take our family to dinner every Christmas Eve and decided on Old Hickory this year, as my husband and I had dined here previously and were very impressed. We booked a table for 6 and were delighted to be given a round table upon check-in. The staff is amazingly helpful and efficient, but unfortunately this is where the quality ended for us. I'm not sure if prices were raised for the holiday or what, but the portion sizes of the entrees and appetizers had diminished significantly, yet priced the same...frustration started to set in! The chilled seafood tower was our biggest disappointment. We ordered it for 4 and honestly the one that my husband and I had had previously for 2 was larger? Yet cost us almost three times as much. The shrimp also were covered in some odd, slimy sauce this time around...not good. The sides that came with the steaks were smaller, the steaks themselves were smaller and the cheese plate appetizer that we purchased for eight was a waste of money for portion size. Also, we ordered two bottles of wine, which had gone up in price significantly since our last visit. Coffee was not hot, espresso tasted like regular coffee, desserts were small...sigh! We left after spending more than $1k+ vowing we were done with this spot for a while. Very disappointed with everything except our servers and the gentleman at the wine bar upstairs! Get your act back together Old Hickory or you've lost us for good!
Unfortunately I cannot leave a positive review. We come to Old Hickory every Christmas season. This year the food was just absolutely subpar. The shrimp on the cocktail and the seafood tower were pinkish grey and slimy. My beet salad was just average. The mushroom risotto tasted like white rice with mushroom soup. My son’s steak was below average. Service was absent. Had to pour my own water and received dried out limes. The dessert was nice. We will not go back. Very sad because we have many happy memories there and the food and service used to be 5 Star. This was like an Outback with Capital Grill prices.
Filet mignon was tough and over cooked. Waiter suggested cod to my wife which she ordered. She also ordered risotto thinking it was a side to the cod as a main dish. Waiter did not point that out to her and just brought her a risotto main dish. He was not attentive, just going through the motions.
Overpriced for just adequate food restaurant is nothing special for being touted as the best inside the Gaylord Texan Resort Hotel.
Suggest you go into Grapevine and have a nice meal with excellent food at a reasonable price
We have made Old Hickory our special place to go on our anniversary. We have dined at the restaurant every year since the Gaylord Texan has opened. This year two things happened that has made us think that next year we will look else where for our anniversary dinner. First they did not have our table, this had become a very special little spot for our dinner. Staff said they had a large party to accommodate so our table was not available, in the past we did not have to ask for the table, it was set aside for us by staff. Second the service this year was not what we usuals experienced. Service was slow, I had to ask twice for a glass of wine, it just seemed that staff was just not into taking care of our table.
Steaks were good but soooo overpriced, as was everything. Steaks are easily $60...just for the steak a la carte, sides and salads are extra! Very few options for sides, very few green vegetables, terrible appetizer selection; every one was seafood or shellfish except for carpaccio or the tableside cheese tray...which also had few choices...not even a gruyerre or smoked gouda...we were hard pressed to find 3 cheeses, so we chose 2 and supposedly got "extra" of each of the two. And I couldn't get a decent chardonnay to save my life. Finally...dessert...we were offered cheesecake, which we would have loved...what we were served was a giant chocolate egg that our waiter poured hot chocolate sauce over, and in the middle of all this chocolate was a tiny "crustless medallion" of a cheesecake-like mousse. If we had wanted chocolate and more chocolate we would have ordered the chocolate cake...the chef's very unique interpretation of "cheesecake" should have been described to us by our server prior to ordering. Overall, a waste of over $200. I would not return nor recommended.
The filet was delicious. Service was slower than we liked (drink refills and food arrival) but all the food was just fabulous. The creamed corn was very spicy. Whipped potatoes were yummy. The seafood tower was excellent although drawn butter should’ve accompanied the dish. Brussels sprouts were too burnt :( Friends had other dishes I tried and the scallops were very good but the red snapper a little over cooked. Overall very good and we’ll be back.
We weren't impressed with our experience. It took us 15mins to get a table that we made reservations for with an almost empty restaurant. The waiter was nice, but it took him another 15-20mins before he took our order, which is long when you have hungry children. They did provide the kids grapes which is nice and they had gluten free rolls as well as regular bread for the table. I shared the surf and turf for two and it was beyond disappointing. There is literally two small scallops and a small half of a lobster to share with this giant porterhouse steak. The steak it self didn't have much flavor and the seafood portion tasted very fishy (which isn't good) and not fresh. The steaks come with zero sides, so you have to spend more money if you don't want to just eat meat. We spent about $450 for 4 adults and 2 children. Not worth the money. I've spent less money at better restaurants. Hotel guests are being robbed by this place. I would suggest guests leave the property and go somewhere else. Even Texas Roadhouse is a better steak option than this place. So disappointed.
I booked a night at the Gaylord for my boyfriends birthday and The Old hickory Steakhouse was located right by our room. Beautiful place to dine and our waitress Barbara was phenomenal! Very polite, complimentary, funny, and professional all at the same time! Its hard to find a combination of all! The food was great! The only part of our dinner that I was not a huge fan of, was the whipped mashed potatoes. They tasted a bit like instant potatoes, but other than that it was a fantastic restaurant and an amazing experience thanks to the staff!
I would definitely recommend this place!
This was supposed to be a SPECIAL CHRISTMAS DINNER with my Dad, sister, as our mom passed away. So, season is very hard to get through. Our waiter was EXHAUSTING, we constantly had to get him tracked down, dessert was aweful, he NEVER even sent management over. Then, we had leftovers to pack up, Dave took to kitchen, all got thrown out, so, came to ask if we wanted to wait AGAIN for another meals to be cooked to go!!! For the level of prices it was VERY FRUSTRATING AND EXHAUSTED to try to even relax and enjoy! !! Shouldn't have to ask for a glass of wine 3x, or wait for 3 different people to say it's coming.....NOT A HIGH-END DINING EXPERIENCE. ..mad my dad had to be this frustrating too, as he traveled the world his whole career, retired now...we were VERY DISAPPOINTED! !!!
We have been frequent guests to this wonderful restaurant. The food was very good and certainly met our expectations. The service was also marvelous and very attentive to detail. The seasonal crowd was somewhat overbearing with regard to level of noise and "selfies". Wine list selections are still awesome! We were not disappointed in the quality and/or the service we received. Still one of our favorites in the DFW metroplex.
We were not 'wowed'. The service was great, having two people take care of the table made the experience better but when we go to a restaurant of this caliber we want to be wowed. Every year I take my wife and daughter on a Christmas date and we chose Old Hickory this year. Unfortunately the food was not at a high level and the desserts were real disappointing. I guess going to a higher level restaurant each year we tend to compare it to the others and after our visit we voted Old Hickory at the bottom of the list from our other experiences with similar type restaurants. I wish we could have given rave reviews but not this visit. Positive like i mentioned above having 2 people helped with service level and our reservation was at 8 and we were seated right at 8.
