The bar staff was to busy talking to each other. Also I ask for a glass of house wine 17.00 for a glass is to much. Our waiter was wonderful. I would give him 10 stars

Took my parents for Mother's Day supper. The ambiance is good, but the food quality is not what we expected. The steaks were cold and the side dishes were prepared hours before and were lukewarm. I am an Orlando native and have been to the restaurant twice before. I cannot remember having a meal so lackluster. The bright spot was the staff. I felt bad for them having to act like the meal was satisfactory. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

First time at Old Hickory and last. Waitress was wonderful but the food was not good. My steak was very try hardly any flavor. My daughter picky eater got over cooked pasta. My mom ordered a Filet medium rare it was well done we sent it back they brought out a raw steak she didn’t even ask for another. They were nice enough to take it off the bill but for what you pay for versus what you get totally not worth. I have paid less at Capitol Grille and Morton’s for much better steak.

Wildly overpriced food. Beyond just touristy-high prices. $50 for a steak, no side, no salad? $3 add-on for a dab of steak sauce? Ridiculously expensive, and not exceptional in any way except price.

Manny’s Original Chophouse just a few miles away has better steaks by far, better side dishes, incredible salad, very reasonable drinks, and prices 1/2 of Old Hickory.

No one except captives of the resort would eat here more than once at these silly prices.

The food was delicious, surroundings cozy, and the server Brian amazingingly thoughtful as he always anticiapted everything (refills, timing the next course). We were there to celebrate Mother's Day & a birthday. It was a wonderful experience.

Cheese plate was very good. Salads so-so. The steak was good but I asked for medium rare and it was cooked medium. For the price they should get that right every time.

The restaurant was inside of the resort. So, it was very convenient for us so as to not have to leave the resort to eat dinner. The food was good but we felt that it didn’t justify the outrageous prices for everything.

Service was excellent and saved the experience, if only the food measured up.

I expected a lot more from a $65 dry aged delmonico.

Soufflé for dessert was very good.

Overall I’ve had better meals for the price.

We've been there a few times. Always leave disappointed. Steaks were undercooked (again) and what they asserted was an amazing delmonico was a $65 piece of fat, way beyond marbled even for a rib eye.

Our meals at Old Hickory were very good, steaks tender! Found the atmosphere to be outdated and worn, chairs uncomfortable. We were asked to wait in the bar (10 min early for our reservation) and the bar was old and dingy, unwelcoming... Even the servers/bartenders uniforms were outdated. Even though we found the food delicious the restaurant was not comfortable.

There were two of us at dinner here. The restaurant layout is fantastic and we completely enjoyed our visit. The service beat our expectations by a large margin. Be prepared to spend a lot of money here. A couple of drinks, a shared dessert, steak and fish entrees and the tab was over $300. To be honest we’ll be back. When it comes to a great dining experience we will gladly pay extra. But if you’re on a budget then think twice about this one.

Although the food was impressive, especially the cheese platter selection and properly prepared steaks, it was the service that truly stood out. My party was well attended by all the staff members we encountered and our table servers were truly top-notch.

Our waiter Brian was very attentive and took good care of us. We were celebrating our anniversary and he made sure all of the foods was to our liking. He added a special desert for our occasion for us to enjoy. The manager Benjamin came over and introduced himself. Speaking with him made our night even more special. This was our 4th time back and we will come back next year, if not before.

The seating was ideal. The service- friendly, timely and beyond expectation. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Although a little late starting because of a kitchen problem, it was more than made up for it with their personal managerial apology and outstanding service from Javier.

Javier was personal, kind and very interesting. He showed that he cared about our enjoying our evening and provided exceptional care and service. We will be back.

Overall, the restaurant is pretty good. It's billed as a "high end" "classy" place, so I guess it's trying to be like Morton's or something comparable, but it doesn't quite get there. The food is good, but like everything at the Gaylord it's crazy expensive. The ambience is nice, the service is solid, and the wine list is good as well. It can get pretty loud, and the tables are pretty close together, so it's not great for intimate conversations.

It's also pretty busy, so a reservation is highly recommended. However, the staff seem a little unsure what to do with you if you show up early, so it's probably best to show up pretty much right on time for your reservation so they don't send you to the bar then forget you.

It's a good place for a business dinner, if you want to treat clients or employees to something that feels like a big, pretentious deal, and don't mind paying a premium for it.

I'll go back, next time I'm at the Gaylord, and will recommend it to others, with those few caveats.
