    Sunday evening Date night - food, ambience, and service were wonderful. We had the small filet, crab cake, hasselback potatoes, and Brussels sprouts. Enjoyed everything except the Brussels sprouts. Prefer their old recipe, leave out the almonds and actually cook the Brussels sprouts in the bacon grease. Other than that enjoyed everything else including the cocktails.

    Convenient in Gaylord Hotel. Service was adequate but could be a bit friendlier - felt more like a diner than high end steak house. Room was extremely noisy - very difficult to carry on a normal conversation at the dinner table. Food however was very good.

    Excellent steaks, the wagyu ribeye was the star of the show. The crab and corn chowder was also amazing. The bread service with sweet butter was excellent. The shareable sides were on the smaller side. The Mac n cheese was not properly prepared. It was very runny and hand no flavor.

    There was hardly anyone at the restaurant and our only choice was the set New Year's Eve menu. The server did not bring the correct silverware for the the oysters, we had to ask for the little forks, the table did not have a table cloth, there was no choice but either beef or salmon, although they did accomodate my wife's request for scallops instead of salmon. Overall not a good choice but there was no other option at the Gaylord's. We would not recommend it.

    Would expect much more, waiter was nice, and apologetic, but the service staff was bad. There was no communication in advance of only having a prix fix option. Was take it or leave it. Good luck getting alternative reservations at 7:30 on New Years. They couldn’t execute on a prix fix menu as demonstrated by being brought out the incorrect items several times, and they even missed a course. There were unruly kids running around screaming and nothing was done. The steak was more connective tissue than meat and very tough for medium rare. Nearly 500.00 wasted for a truly bad experience.

    Our dinner was spectacular. The ambiance really added to the overall experience. Our food was cooked to perfection - our son and I had filets and they were perfect. My husband's crabcakes were very tasty. The homemade honey butter for the delicious bread was so good, it is hard to describe. A wonderful visit.

    This restaurant no longer supports Open table; therefore, we really didn’t have a reservation. They also no longer have the breakfast menu as advertised. It is buffet only. I really had my heart set on several of the menu items. As a result I was slightly disappointed.

    i saw on yelp this place had 3 stars so i was disappointed when my group asked to make reservations here. "another dry piece of steak" i thought to myself; however, from the minute i walk in i was proved wrong. we started off with the oysters and they were the freshest oysters over ever had. then i ordered the 8oz filet mignon (which to be honest filet mignon had a tendency to be dry) and again i was proved wrong. i'd love to go back!
