                                                  Service overall was terrible. Ordered entrees at 8.15pm and food arrived at 9.50pm - which is totally unacceptable. Pathetic excuses we’re give. Whilst food was good, total experience was a huge disappointment- would not recommend your establishment to anybody.

                                                  This was my second time dining with Old Hickory and my experience was much different than the first. My first experience was delightful. The food was amazing, but not so much this time. My food had absolutely no seasoning and for the cost of the food and the small portions sizes, they really should look into lowering their price point.

                                                  Has always been our favorite steak house. Unfortunately they took two of the main items off the menu that we go there for, the rib-eye and the creme brulee. The service was exceptional as usual but without those items I don't thinks its quite worth the cost.

                                                  Service was slow. Very slow. I think we were forgotten for larger tables as they were busy. But it was exceptional food so worth the wait.

                                                  Overall good experience- we enjoyed the menu selections and the choices we made. Service was almost great/ staff felt new or rushed. Couldn’t figure out what it was, but it made the experience feel a bit too casual for the venue and price point.

Phenomenal steaks and sides with very nice wine-by-the-glass options (we chose The Prisoner!). The cheesecake for dessert was delicious as well. Definitely a great evening!

                                                  It's a hotel restaurant, so you already know it's going to be overpriced, and absolutely was. Waitstaff was good and helpful. Wifey and I were celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary, so I asked for a romantic table with a view. Apparently that was too much to ask. Food was just ok. I had bison which I had to scrape the salt off of the top of, and my wife had lobster which was a bit mushy and smelled off. For what they charged, you'd think they would at least try. I just felt underwhelmed and wished I could do my anniversary over. I guess I'll know better next time.

                                                  We received an SMS notifying us our table was ready but then had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. The server was arrogant, the steak was over cooked and they stopped refilling our water glass once our dinner was served. Overall bad experience and I would not recommend this Old Hickory.

                                                  My husband and I have been trying to book a reservation here for years. It was well worth the wait because the food was phenomenal and the service was outstanding. We highly recommend the Bison Ribeye and the Maine Lobster. Both together, were an amazing culinary experience. Thank you Old Hickory Steakhouse for being a quality establishment and I will bring my friends and family here every time!

                                                  TERRIBLE. AVOID. Ps. I don't normally write reviews. Literally the worst overpriced steak house that I have ever been to. I frequent steak houses across the country for work 2-3x a month over the past 15 years of professional traveling. Portions are small. Meat quality was terrible. Their prices are insane. $55 for a petite filet? $75 for a 8oz? $16 for a tiny 1 cup sized portion of brussels sprouts? $36 for Steak Tartare? Our lobster was overcooked. One filet was sent back due to tendons throughout the entire cut of meat. I have no problem paying top dollar prices but your food better be justified in that price. This food was Applebees quality at best. No surprise they had less than 10-15% occupancy on a Friday night. Save your money and go to one of the numerous other great restaurants in this area. The child in our party enjoyed the french fries and chicken tenders for whatever that's worth.

                                                  Disappointed. Unfortunately went in comparing to Nashville Gaylord Opryland, Old Hickory dining experience. Service was adequate but the ribeye steak was over seasoned and too much fat for a $$$$ steak.

We request him every time we frequent Old Hickory Steakhouse and are never disappointed. The cheese selection was delicious and well presented. Our steaks were melt in our mouths delicious as well. As our side we ordered the wild mushrooms with onions and they were so savory. Our dessert of chocolate and toffee cake was so yummy. We will definitely be back soon. We always feel appreciated when we visit. This is a top of the line restaurant.
