This was our first trip (over 30 miles) to this restaurant. The service and ambiance were great but the prices for the quantity of food was quite high, $40 for two cocktails, $80 for two steaks where Outback gets $46 for same cut of meat. We will give it another try on another special ocassion.

We had the pork chop and bone in ribeye, both were ordered MR to MED and both were raw. And I mean RAW. The waiter was very helpful but by the time we received them back our other items (mushroom risotto, Brussel sprouts) were cold. The pork chop on the second cooking was still raw, so we just asked for them to go and left.

Our anniversary dinner was amazing as always at Old Hickory. Best lobster bisque we can find on the planet! Steaks were perfect and creamed corn with a touch of heat was so yummy! They brought us an anniversary dessert of cheesecake in a chocolate dome, fantastic meal from beginning to end. Service was impeccable

We'll likely not return for steaks here.

This was our second visit to this restaurant, the first was a wedding anniversary, the second was a combination business trip and early valentines with my wife. Overall it was a great experience, but 2 things that could have been better.

1) the 9 ounce filet mignon had no flavor. I read many comments about the steaks not having flavor. A good steak flavor should not need lots of spices. That said, this meat literally had no flavor. This must be why it comes with grilled onions and peppers. A ribeye would never need onions or peppers to accompany it.

2) there was a couple whose cell phone would loudly chime every 5 minutes with each text message. At one point the man was Face-timing a client and speaking very loudly. A) guests should be asked to silence their phones when being seated and step away from the table if using them. B) do not seat arriving guests near a table obviously loud and discourteous.

The servers were great, most all the other food was delicious. Steak houses are pricey in general, because it is a fine dining experience. That said, when the steak flavor is absent, as was mine, it diminishes the experience.

We'll likely go elsewhere next time.

The service was outstanding as was the ambience. The food was good, but not the best I have ever had with the exception of the lobster bisque which was excellent. I ordered the "add on" of sea scallops as my entree. Like I said, they were good, but not the best I've ever had. For $19 I expected better since there were literally only 2 scallops garnished with a few pieces of spring mix. The wedge salad was not great and I only ate half of it. The blue cheese dressing was very vinegary and somewhat thin compared to other blue cheese dressings I have had in the past.
The bacon did not appear to be real bacon. It may have been, but it was ground up very fine, so I wasn't sure. It could have been like the mass produced Hormel "real" bacon bits, or it could have been bacon that had been run through a food processor. It just didn't have that real bacon taste. So, my meal consisted of the wedge salad, lobster bisque, and 2 scallops. I did not feel the need to complain about any of it, but it was a rather expensive meal for what it was. I don't mind paying for excellent food and service. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Went for my husband’s birthday had the cod ( recommended by our waiter ) and he had the fillet with cognac peppercorn sauce. Everything was excellent. I am suspicious about the bad reviews I keep reading, maybe a competitor or business nearby. Great experience and food.

We dined at this restaurant because we were staying at the hotel and the reviews were good. I am not sure if we just went on a bad night but our experience was awful! It was horrible! The shrimp cocktail (3 shrimp for $16), were the worst I have ever had. The bread is more like dessert and our bread plate had a hair on it. The waiter apologized and comped us some peppercorn sauce to make up for it. My husband did enjoy his steak but mine was horrible. I ordered the filet and it was cold and was more like pepper steak. We ordered a nice bottle of wine and that was the best part. This meal was not worth what we paid! I would not recommend this restaurant. Go outside the hotel to eat. Do not waste your money here!

Me and my Fiancé had the pleasure of dining at The Old Hickory, at the Gaylord Texan, for my birthday, on January 20th. We had an early 5:30pm reservation. We showed up about 15 minutes early and we sat at the bar for a drink before we were seated. I would recommend this! They have an outstanding wine list and get the Texas Old Fashion drink. It was phenomenal! The bar tender who made it for me was Matthew who was friendly and very helpful along with Glen and Dave. Best drink I've ever had and I love Old Fashion's.

We were promptly seated at 5:30pm and the feel of the restaurant was romantic with the perfect amount of light and sound. The service was spot on and our waiter was another gentleman named Matthew and he was fantastic. He went out of his way to make sure we were well taken care of. The servers were excellent too.


We started with a Lobster Bisque and Shrimp Cocktail that we shared and it was a perfect choice. Both were delicious. For our main I had a New York Strip and my Fiancé had a Fillet. We both ordered them medium and they were cooked to perfection. The best steak I have ever eaten. We chose the oven Roasted Mushrooms and the Olive Oil & Thyme Whipped Potatoes for sides. Both were excellent with wonderful flavor.

Our waiter, Matthew, found out it was my birthday and he brought out a portion of cheesecake surrounded by a wall of chocolate that melted in your mouth. The cheese cake was outstanding. A perfect ending to an amazing meal. We will DEFINITELY be back! We had a great time and a wonderful experience.

If only the food was good, would fix the problem that not only me but pretty much everybody that goes to this restaurant experience. They should have aged steak for the price we are already paying and not the average steak that can be served at Texas Roadhouse for example. They really need to step up their game.

An excellent dinner for two. It wasn't cheap, but - unlike many expensive restaurants - was worth the cost. The beet salad was excellent, as was the Caesar, which was complete with anchovies. The nicest surprise was the Octopus starter: crispy on the outside and - on the inside - about as tender as any octopus I've ever had, world-wide. My girlfriend and I shared a Farms 44 bone-in ribeye - it was huge. The steak was cooked perfectly (we requested medium-rare), and was very good, but not excellent: just a little too much gristle. The sauces (we tried béarnaise and peppercorn) were sublime. We couldn't fit in dessert. I've saved the best for last. The service was really good, and in particular our waiter was wonderful: welcoming, knowledgeable, helpful and friendly without being too forward. We observed that he treated other tables just as expertly as he did ours. He was the ultimate professional and the restaurant should consider him their "MVP".

The serving crew was excellent. I ordered the Piedmontese Ribeye. The flavor was good but as the server explained, this cow was bred to be less marbled. Most people I know (self included) like a ribeye because it is marbled. If you don't want marbled, get a filet. My wife and I were pretty much in agreement on this. I would have gotten the Cowboy but it was too large. So, good meal but for a ribeye, go traditional.

Food was average, definitely not worth the price. Waiter was stretched thin. We wouldn’t see him for 10-15 minutes at a time, which wasn’t his fault. Medium rare steak was cooked to well done. Risotto was over cooked and mush and came out to the table 10 minutes after the steak and sides.

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!
