Good, attentive service which is not intrusive; excellent quality food (both meats and seafood); a large dining room which, even with many diners, is not packed with people. Yes, it's expensive but appropriately so; you're getting excellent food and you're paying the appropriate price. We visit the Gaylord National Harbor 2-3 times per year and always plan on at least one evening in Old Hickory. Highly recommended.

Greeted as soon as we arrived and given a table with a great view of the harbor. (It was sunset). Waiter was very friendly and professional. Made some great recommendations that we did not regret. It was a wonderful evening and glad we chose Old Hickory Steakhouse to celebrate.

From the moment we walked into the restaurant until we left, we were made to feel appreciated and special. Our server Marc and assistant Jessica were both amazing. The food was delicious and we were able to enjoy the evening and not feel rushed. We will continue to return and eat at Old Hickory Steakhouse.

POOR SERVICE!!!!!!! I ended up leaving after waiting 15 minutes before we were offered water. Additionally another 15 minutes went by and I had to get up to find someone to ask about meeting our waiter. We ended up walking out.

Way over priced. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone because you can get the same quality of food for about two thirds the cost at other restaurants.

The staff was ok. We waited despite our reservation for over 80 minutes and counting, until we had our dinner in the lounge area. The food took over 30 minutes to bring out. Cheese plate and Wagu center cut steak with broccoli.

Andrew was a STELLAR server whose intuitive suggestions made our meal better than it would have had we made selections without his help. As a result we had a meal and experience we will remember for years!

I have had better service at Old Hickory in the past. Service was rather slow and choppy. Waited very long for main course and food was luke warm when it arrived at table.

We were seated quickly enough and while ther was hardly anyone in the restaurant, all of the service staff were racing around, for what we couldn't guess. Took a while to get a ice tea for my daughter, my $55 Wagyu steak was not prepared correctly. The waiter was fine but hardly saw him around and the staff were bickering back and forth about whatever. Not what one would expect from a higher-end steak house. Certainly did not get our $125 worth. Will not go back.

Service was good, staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Food was good. Very expensive for what was served. Priced like Morton’s without the portion size. Drop the prices 15% and it would be worth the value

Our waiter was excellent, attentive, but not obtrusive. He knew the menu very well, selected a nice wine, and made some great recommendations. All around excellent service. Nice table setting overlooking the atrium. The food was ok. I started with the mixed green salad which was very good. My husband and I ordered the Tomahawk Steak, roasted mushrooms and whipped potatoes. The steak had very good flavor, but I do not believe the steak was properly trimmed. I would say about a 1/4 of the steak was fat. I like a nice marbled steak, but....this was not it. The mushrooms and potatoes were fine. We ordered the chocolate ganache cake for dessert. It was ok, but I am very picky on desserts. I do not like the desserts to be too sweet, and this was sweet served with a couple sides of sweet. My husband liked the dessert, and the flavor was nice. I know---it's just a preference thing--I prefer desserts to be less sweet. I thought the bread could be a lot better and would like to see more variety on their starters. I would definitely try it again, but not the Tomahawk Steak. One last quick note. I have never been one to judge people on how they dress for dinner. This is a nice restaurant, but I do expect to see people dressed casually--it is the harbor. But......people in their bathrobes at the bar is just a little too casual.

While our table was not what I had envisioned for our anniversary and we could have done without the loud, way underdressed party across from us. I must say the food was on par with Bistro Hermetage. The best part of our evening was Steve! His knowledge base coupled with just enough personal conversation made him the highlight of our experience. Bravo Steve! And many thanks for treating us as if we were his only table even though he was swamped.

I have eaten at Orlando hickory and Baltimore hickory. Hands down winner is Baltimore. It is a notch above Orlando in every way. The food was delicious, steak cooked to perfection, salad was excellent and the bar selection was outstanding. Highly recommend when near National Harbor and looking for a great steak.
