    The food was to die for! I got a Cabernet Reduction sauce to go with my steak, and I didn’t use it for my steak at all, as the flavor on the steak was perfect by itself.

    Very nice setting and great food. (Lobster bisque was amazing). Service was excellent as well. It does get a little noisy, and there didn't seem to be a dress code enforced for guests. These are things I might ask for in the price range here, but overall a great place for a dinner date with someone special.

    Let me start by saying Sam was amazing. His knowledge of the menu made every item sound like something I needed to try. The seafood tower was very fresh with a variety of sauces. The cheese platter selection was perfectly balanced. Our party had the Wagyu filet, New York strip, zucchini pasta, & french onion soup. I would recommend them all. The mac & cheese and mashed potatoes also get a thumbs up. The meal was a memorable experience thanks to the amazing food and staff.

    I ate at multiple restaurants in the Gaylord & this was by far my favorite. There was 3 of us, 3 steaks of some sort & 3 sides for the table. The steak melted in my mouth like butter it was so good. The wait staff was excellent & the views & ambiance of the hotel from our table was great. I recommend this restaurant 10/10. Just know you’re paying above average prices in an above average resort.

    Absolutely cheated by the Old Hickory. Server recommended bottle of wine and led us to believe it was $65. Turns out is was $250 + 18% liquor tax. After the 20% tip we left, that bottle cost us $354. Server failed to mention any of this. Terrible surprise that ruined our trip. Thanks a lot Gaylord Opryland.

    I will start by saying you probably will not find a better atmosphere for dining. The place is beautiful and the service was good The down side started with drinks. My wife's drink option (Cosmopolitan) was terrible but she drank it thinking they gave her the Cos-No-politan (non-alcohol). There was no hint if alcohol. The second drink came out on the rocks (which it shouldn't have). That was sent back and finally a traditional Cosmo was served. I ordered the rib-eye which was tasty but was more grissle than meat...very disappointing. The presentation of our meal was good and my wife enjoyed the filet she ordered.

    My wife and I were out for her birthday. The food and atmosphere was amazing. Our server was atrocious. He was not attentive, glasses were rarely refilled, and he only checked on us one time during our time at the steakhouse. You just expect more when you are paying $300 for a dinner.

    Decent meal in a nice setting. Not great enough to make a trek out to Gaylord to eat here, but good if you are staying in the hotel. If you are looking for a terrific steakhouse, go downtown. Dishes are on the expensive side and not much flavor as you would expect. Coconut cake, which we shared was dry and tasted “day or two old” and the presentation was a mess. Steaks are cooked to order and service is pleasant and efficient.

    Food and ambiance was good. Lobster bisque was excellent and poured over right at table - pretty cool. Seafood platter and steaks were good. Zuchini pasta was too salty to eat. I would’ve rated this restaurant better, but we were celebrating an anniversary and a birthday and though they had notes on these events at the hostess stand, there was not a mention of it or anything special done by our server during the meal. Very disappointing for a 400$ meal for 3 adults, 2 kids. I’m not sure the point of even mentioning it, if there is nothing made of what you are celebrating.

    Lobster bisque (house specialty), 7oz Filet, and shared side of the best mashed potatoes I've ever had. Dinner reservations at 7pm. Area was still light when starting but as the time passed, got darker and was beautiful. Service was phenomenal.

    We arrived 15 minutes before closing due traffic and they still seated us. Two wait staff and obviously kitchen stayed on for over an extra hour to give us an excellent dine experience. The food was great, and despite having to stay on an extra hour, the service was attentive and friendly. A big shout out to our waiter Emile.

    Thr Australian Wagyu was flovorful. The ambiance was excellent overlooking the fountain and man made river. I wish the wagyu came with some.garnish or some presentation even if they are saying all side orders are ordered separately. The medium rare that ordered came out to have too.mich tar and overcooked on the sides.

    Absolutely gorgeous place to dine. Beautiful view of the atrium when dining on the exterior patio. The service is exceptional and Sam made wonderful recommendations. The flavor of the food was just a little off. The appetizer was a little too salty and the steak was bland. The pork and chicken was fabulous. Great wine list. Definitely worth the visit as you are paying for the opportunity to dine in such a wonderful setting. Superb service. We are glad we dined there.

    This is a must go! Give yourself lots of time to explore the resort and get a drink at one of the many bars before dinner. Don’t go after you will be too full with the amazing steaks and sides. Nice wine selection too snd top notch staff! Try the lobster smashed potatoes- holy cow. Not cheap but well worth the experience.

    We were excited to eat here and the location is great. The restaurant is very nice and clean. Service was great. However, when it came to the food and price it just didn’t hit the spot. I got the cowboy ribeye (75) and it was overcooked,salty, and most of the cut was straight fat. My wife got the NY Strip and she said hers was also salty. We ordered the potato wedges and roasted carrots. The wedges were probably the best thing here all night. The carrots were either burnt or soggy. We were disappointed with our food altogether especially since we saw great reviews and were very excited to try this place out. We won’t be coming back though and won’t recommend this place to anyone. The price of food did not add up to the quality of the food.

    Our reservation was for 5:30 and we arrived a half hour earlier. They had a table for two all set for us. Beautiful setting overlooking the garden area. The staff were courteous, friendly and very professional. We ordered the Filet mignon and potatoes. The filet was so tender you didn't need a knife to cut it. The desert was tremendous - it was our anniversary and they surprised us with a wonderful desert for two! We recommend this restaurant to all who visit. We will definitely eat here again!!!!
