The jewel in Gaylord Opryland Resort’s culinary crown, Old Hickory Steakhouse is not only worth the trek through the massive property, but also warrants the drive to Donelson. Valet park at the Magnolia entrance (the original, for those who remember when Opryland was simply a hotel with a nearby theme park and not a resort with a neighboring mall), hang a right off the lobby and head for the Delta, the newest addition to the compound. Old Hickory is located within an antebellum mansion replica, with two interior dining rooms and additional seating on the glass-ceiling pavilion. Old Hickory promises world-class service to deliver a menu that covers traditional steakhouse turf: lobster bisque, shrimp cocktail, crab cakes and certified Angus beef cuts, as well as surf and fowl. Sides offer creative twists on classics: baked lobster mac-and-cheese for one, cheddar grits with beef debris for another. Old Hickory is justifiably proud of its table-side cheese service provided by a Maître fromage.
