Best steak for hundreds of miles! Simple menu: Steak, Salad, Baked Potato and Texas Toast! Choose your cut of meat, the temperature you want it cooked, and sit back and wait for heaven! Simple salad with three dressings available, all three brought to the table. Nothing special for the salad, but I didn't come for salad.

My Small Ribeye came perfectly cooked over charcoal right in the front of the restaurant as you walk in. Tender, juicy, and very flavorful! Not overpowered by seasonings, just a simple, tasty steak. The baked Potato was a perfect pairing covered in butter and sour cream. Most delectable.

Old Hickory Steak House definitely knows what it is and does it superbly, offering a variety of steaks (generous portions), served with a green salad, baked potato, and toasted bread in an ultra-casual vintage environment. My husband's sirloin steak was at least 1 ½" thick; my ribeye was thinner but exactly what I wanted; both were delicious! There were a choice of three dressings for the salad, and all three were excellent. The baked potato was flavorful (how did they do that?). The steaks had that wonderful grilled flavor. No frills, no fussiness, just solid American food. This restaurant is at the top of our list for a repeat visit the next time we're in town!!

This is a wonderful steak house. You pick the type of steak you want, it comes with a baked potato and small green salad. That is all they sell in this restaurant. Not fancy, just old kitchen tables and chairs. The steaks are great. No reservations, you stand in line and wait your turn. Usually not a long wait. Opened for dinner only.

I've gone numerous times- hoping for a better steak. The technique used to mop them and grill them are awesome- I just wished it was thicker than a sandwich slice! Why don't they have a menu option for THICKER steaks! Ribeye, cowboy ribeye, Porterhouse, T-bone, Filet Mignon.....I know the menu is short and sweet for the restaurant's sake (inventory, storage, food purchase costs) but the same ol'-same ol' will wear thin and give one of the six other restaurants who serve great steaks a chance to win me away.

My wife and I went here Saturday May 27, it was busy but still didn't take about 20 minutes to get seated. The ribeyes were amazing as usual.
