NATIONAL HARBOR, MD. (April 6, 2023) - Gaylord National Resort is delighted to announce the opening of the all-new, completely reimagined and modernized Old Hickory Steakhouse on Wednesday, May 10, 2023.

Guests of Gaylord National's Old Hickory Steakhouse will be welcomed into a 10,000+ sq. foot area divided into four unique spaces decorated with rich hues of forest green, deep-sea blue, sandy beach, copper and gold. Windows along the outside wall will provide a spectacular view of the Garden Atrium that will allow diners to view the resort's light and fountain shows throughout the year. Every detail of the design has been intentional with the goal to provide a timeless backdrop that showcases elegance and refinement for guests of Old Hickory.
Highlights of the Old Hickory Steakhouse space include:
"Food brings us together, making the everyday special, and special occasions an event to remember," said Allen Smith, director of food and beverage at Gaylord National Resort. "Our goal for Old Hickory Steakhouse is to provide a refined dining experience whether that be for a solo traveler, a business dinner or locals enjoying a luxurious meal in the dining room or casual drinks and a meal at the bar."
Old Hickory Steakhouses will continue to feature premium steak expertly prepared, with additional timeless classics infused with a regional flare, along with crafted cocktails and flawless service. Gaylord National will debut two new experiences for guests prepared tableside: Maryland Jumbo Lump Crab Cocktail and an exquisitely crafted Old Fashion cocktail.
