Service people dropped trays 3 times. Not a good sound for the wife trying to enjoy our wedding anniversary.

I don't normally get excited about a wedge salad, but this is the best I have had! The filet was done perfectly and went with a great wine the waiter recommended.

The food was good but the prices were extremely high. They could use some more moderately priced starters, sides and entrees.

We've been here maybe 4 times now, and this was perhaps the best meal we've enjoyed. Andrew was our server - very attentive, professional, and appreciated his suggestions on wine. Highly recommend the seafood tower. The crab was sensational, but everything else was also very fresh and tasty, and importantly the kitchen knew how to treat fish so it wasn't overwhelmed by other stuff. Steaks were perfectly cooked, tender, and incredibly juicy. Mashed potatoes were to die for. Well done, we will definitely be back!

We arrived when they first open. Staff was very attentive and polite. Our server went out his way to make our 8yr enjoy his experience. The food was very flavorful. My husband co5uldnt finish his tomahawk. Drinks were okay (Old fashioned and Strawberry Rurbarb Fizz). Son was very pleased with his filet. The view was awesome caught the sun set.

We waited for 20 min to be seated as there was no one to welcome or seat anyone. The service was rushed and not polite. The food that was ordered did not all arrive. In general, a very poor experience for a very expensive meal.

Wonderful ambience and menu. It was my birthday, and we were given a small chocolate cake which we both appreciated. However, the cake was too hard and too chocolaty, and we couldn't eat it!

More seafood entrees would be nice too.

The food here is always amazing. It would take the entire word limit to overstate just how great the food is. Typically my wife and I dine here alone, this dinner outing actually allowed us a chance to invite others to experience Old Hickory with us. Needless to say they were equally as impressed. Great drinks, just a wonderful time.

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
