Extremely happy with our visit to Old Hickory. The customer service from hosts to staff to our waiter was exceptional. Our waiter had extensive knowledge of the menu/flavor profiles, and kept our food coming at a pace that kept us on time for the show we were attending after dinner. Aesthetics are great and enjoyed the atmosphere.

A little pricey but the food is excellent and for the right occasion, well worth it. We’re looking forward to going back.

We had a little of everything and a couple of bottles of wine our waiter was amazing and knew exactly what to pair with what. The whole experience from the time we walked in to the time we left couldn’t have been any better!! Definitely recommend!

Had a perfectly cooked steak and very tasty food overall. The price point felt a little high, but not unexpected for a resort. The service was nice and prompt. Once we were seated we didn’t wait for much.

As a Gaylord Rockies STAR, I needed to experience the hype that surrounded Old Hickory Steakhouse. It offered a 5-star dining experience suited for any situation. I saw people enjoying a business dinner, as well as a family dining.; I even heard a group singing happy birthday wishes. I dined solo, but that did not deprioritize the level of service I received. My water glass never went empty, which might be a small thing for most, but that is one of my biggest annoyance when I dine out. (I love my water.)

Old Hickory Steakhouse will have my recommendation. No matter. What the occasion is, they have something so Preciado for everyone. Fine dinning is what they offer. And for those who are not into fine dining, the Gaylord Rockies still has plenty of excellent food options for even the most causal diners, but when you are ready, Old Hickory Steak house will be there for you too!

Restaurant is elegantly designed, and laid out in such a way that limits the noise. Food was outstanding, and steaks were perfectly prepared. For the size of the resort, the restaurant is not huge, so making reservations early is recommended.

We recently visited Old Hickory Steakhouse at the Gaylord Resort in Aurora, CO. This was our second visit to the restaurant. Our server, James, was personable and engaging. He provided excellent service while also engaging us in conversation about the menu options and providing suggestions.

The food was delicious and prepared wonderfully. Our only concern was with the very large number of conference attendees in the restaurant who were extremely loud and using language I would expect at a Sports Bar and not a Fine Restaurant.

Other than our concern with the other patrons which directly impacted the Ambiance I would recommend visiting Old Hickory Steakhouse.

Wildly overpriced for the atmosphere. Our steaks were cooked perfectly. Service was pretty darn great. Beyond that? I'd never go back. $350 for a couple is enough that it better be on point all around. The atmosphere was totally lacking. They need to invest in different lighting, different music, different furniture...... start there.

It was drafty inside- under an unusually cold vent… but they moved us to a warmer spot with a super lively children’s birthday party - not the quiet intimate experience we were hoping for… but the food & attentive staff were remarkable.

This was our first time to dine at Old Hickory Steakhouse. Our waiter Sebastian was great, helping us understand the menu offerings. Steak and fish were perfectly cooked. Our less than 5 star rating is a result of the ambience. We're not anti kids or family, but the number of kids (constantly getting up`from their tables and crying babies) were a distraction and disappointment after spending $200+ on our meal.

Saskia was a great waitress and the food was fabulous. Restaurant it self was very nice as well but the service was excellent I would go back just for the service. Would also highly recommend the cowboy cut ribeye one of the best steaks in town. Will definitely be coming back here again.

We had the buffalo ribeye, I think I would choose something else next time, like their bone-in ribeye or filet. The asparagus were not that great but the waitress removed them from our tab. The mac n cheese and crab cake were excellent overall it was a very nice restaurant and the food was good. I would recommend giving it a try!

Food was decent, but INCREDIBLY limited menu… and for the price, I could've eaten somewhere else that had better food and more options. PS: do NOT order the crab cake unless you like lots of vegetables and lemon flavor in your crab. Our server was wonderful and the atmosphere was beautiful, but I see no reason why we’d go back.

I ordered the filet with Lobster butter fondue, it was very good as were the sides of the potato puree and asparagus. My date ordered the New York Strip with peppercorn sauce but it was rather tough and was not a fan of the sauce. Overall good but with a tab of $200.00 pre-gratuity we expected a lot better!

Definitely a good experience with Brandon as our server. Restaurant was busy and our food and drinks were really good, had no issues what so ever. This was definitely a special occasion splurge, but at least our parking was validated. Oh, and we had a great table next to a fireplace, for which I think using open table helped with that.

The manager Joseph was great as was our server Dannel. I was a little surprised and disappointed that the hostess was wearing tennis shoes and jeans? I would expect a little more upscale for the prices...... Maybe a dress and heels???
