I had to eat quickly as I was at a conference and I only had limited time. The service was bright and bubbly, the food came out promptly and the burger I ordered was great! I liked that it had an 'outside' area away from the TV's and such so I could just enjoy people watching and eating in the... More

When a restaurant can accommodate little ones with their special food needs and prepare a nice meal for adults, it is a plus. This is a sports bar atmosphere but not overly loud or bustling. Recommend for families traveling to the hotel or special exhibits like ICE! at the holidays.

We went there as a party of six with three adults and three children. We were very underwhelmed with the extremely limited menu selection--there were less than ten entrees total--and the high prices. Second, the restaurant was very dirty--there were half eaten plates left on tables all over the place and no one seemed to clean them off the hour... More

This is our second time eating here. My husband and I think that the pulled pork was great. The spaghetti for kids is also really good.

We travel just about every weekend and we visit this hotel for a event every year. By the end of each long day and night we're always looking for good food and a couple of drinks. National Pastime is the just the kind of place we look for, good food and drinks. Many TV's and good atmosphere.

We stayed at the Gaylord as part of a package and had $100 Resort credit. We headed down to National Pastime with 4 adults and 2 kids. We started off with an appetizer of crab dip and chips and salsa which were both great. We ended up with a variety of the entrees with me getting the double burger. All... More

We stopped here for a snack before going out for the evening. We had the warm tortilla chips with salsa. The chips weren't that warm and I've had better salsa. The staff was very friendly

This place is right in the hotel. It is pretty big and since it was in the middle of the day we didn't have a problem getting a table right away. The menu is good for a casual meal. There were a lot of families there, so it was pretty noisy. the service and food was good.

Took my 13 year old to National Pastime after ICE! last Friday night. It was a typical sports bar - very spacious. We did not have to wait, even though it was pretty crowded. We both got burgers and fries - very tasty. Restaurant and restrooms were very clean. The most memorable part of the meal was our server Tarina... More
