Terrible! This place is making...

Terrible! This place is making a living off sucker tourist and they got me. Very over priced. Which is fine if the food was even decent. That was bar none the worst steak I have ever eaten. My wife felt the same way. Terrible!

Editorial review from Citysearch

Went here for our anniversary. Took the Dry-Aged surf and turf option. Two Manhattan strips grilled over Hickory charcoal and a large lobster to share. As far as I know, this is the only restaurant to offer a luxury like this in the city. Great experience.

Less than Poor

If there was a negative rating I'd use it. I don't mind paying for a good steak. Operative work ""good"". Well this was my second and last visit to this place. $40 for a prime rib that was tasteless, tough, full of sinew and as much fat as meat is a bit much. Add $7 for a potato and $7 for a small head of lettuce, called a baby iceberg salad. Ridiculously expensive. Oh! and $16 for a margarita. Should have gone to a Sizzler, Outback or Logan's Road House. Would have had a better steak and saved over $100 bucks. This place has gone so far downhill, not sure if it can recover.....I know I will not return...

A Stone-cold Tourist trap.

I brought my wife and mother, we skipped the appetizers, we each had a steak, vegetable, potato, shared one bottle of wine and each had a desert.

With a 15% tip, the check came to $527.00.

The appalling thing about this experience wasn't the the mind-numbing price tag. For this sort of money one should reasonably anticipate an above average meal. However, the steaks were tough and not cooked to order. Every single one of them! We spent the entire meal vigorously sawing with our serrated knives the meat from the sinew and gristle and chewing like we were eating cheap overcooked pork chops at a roadside diner. The vegetables that came with this meal arrived under-cooked and only slightly warmer than room temperature. The potatoes au gratin were semi-raw.

When you are ordering ? la carte (paying separately for everything on your plate) and paying almost $100 just for the steak, this isn't just a disgrace, in my opinion, there is something else going on. It is inconceivable that the management is not aware of the inferior quality of the produce they are sending out to the table. Nor is it possible that they have not read or heard any feedback in this regard.

Several days later, still stinging from the feeling that I had been cheated like a poor dumb rube, I called the restaurant and asked to speak to the manager. He was a polite young man. He listened attentively and regretfully apologized and thanked me for telling him all about it. I hung up feeling pretty sure that he had heard all of this many times before, had apologized many times before and was really not in a position to do anything about it or lose any sleep over it.

You have been warned. This establishment is in the sheep shearing business...... and you are the sheep.

I think The Stockyard is great...

I think The Stockyard is great. I proposed over dinner and it was marvelous. My steack was superb, and her blackened chicken she adored. Our waiter's name was Darrin. The best I've had in years. The staff went the extra mile to make the dinner as well as the night perfect. The prices were a bit up there, and the wine list is fantasic. Overall, It was worth every penny, and ask for Darrin. He'll make sure you get your money's worth.

We should have taken a clue from the almost empty parking lot. Ambience was quaint but the whole building smelled like backed up sewage. The menu is extremely overpriced for the quality of food we were served. We had the Kobe filet and it was nothing special. The service was the only element of their ""fine dining"" we enjoyed. Please don't waste your time. If you want a good steak, try Stoney River down by Cool Springs. The food, service and ambience is delightful!
Happy Dining,

Former Nashville Icon

Worst experience we have had in years. Not afraid to pay for great meal with ambience and quality! This was a waste of both time and money. Embarrassing to our city. Total tourist trap. Hotel and shuttles vans bring in the unsuspecting and we live visitors left with this horrific experience. Staff untrained and rude- not at all the former experience of the delightful staff that had been around for years and enjoyed their jobs. Pricing is a joke. -----Don't do this to yourself or your friends.

Best Steak I Ever Had!!!!

I am from out of town and was staying at the Opryland Hotel for business. The concierge recommended the Stockyard Restaurant for a great steak. She made the reservation for us, and one of their shuttle buses picked us up from the hotel and took us to dinner for free! Once there, the building is spectacular. It was once a stockyard, and is a historical landmark for the state of Tenn. Our server was Lisa, and she was amazing! She was very knowledgeable about the menu and the extensive wine list (that just won the Wine Spectator 2 cup award for excellence). We ordered Cain 5, a blend from Napa that was exquisite! Lisa told us about the Kobe Beef specials. We all had the Kobe Tomahawk Ribeye w/ family style portions of lobster bacon mac n cheese and Sweet mash potatoes. The Tomahawk was the best steak I've ever had and the mac n cheese was decadent! It was expensive, but worth every penny. I eat at Flemmings, Ruth's Chris, or the Palm in every city I'm in. This was a uniquely Nashville dining experience like I've never had before. I will be back this fall with my entire staff of 40 for a sales meeting. Yes, they have private dining for big groups, too! Loved it Loved it Loved it!!!

Over priced bad food!

Very disappointed in the food and way over priced. I sent back my salmon because it was way over salted the waiter brought me another and i still could not eat it. Waiter insisted we have a desert and i was thinking that it was no charge because of my horrible meal but no they charged me for it and the over salted salmon. I have never had that done in any restaurant.. Unbelievable!!

WAY OVER PRICED! Waiters definitely try to upsell you from a $39 steak to a $109 steak... in a sneaky way.

Charming place/atmosphere to be sure, but the food is just okay... not mind-blowing like we thought it was going to be and definitely not worth the over $1000 we paid for our party of 4.

Don't believe the hype. It's not worth the money.
