Restaurant | "More dining at Gaylord Opryland"

Since we were staying at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel it is not unexpected that we would eat at least one of our meals here. On previous visits I have eaten at Old Hickory Steak House which is amazing. One this visit, we had appetizers on the first evening at the Cascades Lobby Bar and I need to tell you that they were amazing, I mean really amazing and we all know that I am not very easily impressed. My only regret was that of course, I could not indulge in a drink and had to be satisfied with sparkling water. On the second night of the press trip we ate our dinner at Solario, which is an authentic Mexican restaurant within the Opryland complex. I have to admit, I was a little leery since I...Read More

Restaurant | "Special Occassion Dining"

Capitol Grille Photo, Nashville, Tennessee
Quote:
Located in the Iconic Hermitage Hotel in downtown Nashville, Capitol Grill is one of the finest dining establishments in Nashville. Chef Tyler Brown has brought his own twist on southern cuisine to the Capitol Grill and the emphasis has been placed on using local produce. So much so, that they have their own garden at the Farm at Glen Leven where they grow not only the finest heritage vegetables but also beef. With an eye toward becoming the best sustainable restaurant in Tennessee and ultimately the country they continue to shift the menu to use what is freshest. We were privileged to meet not only Tyler but others who introduced us to their wonderful produce. They brought some of the w...Read More

General Jackson Showboat

Attraction | "Rolling on the River"

One of the highlights of our three days in Nashville was a lunch time cruise on the Cumberland River. The General Jackson has a dock right behind the Opryland Mall which is vacant at the moment. The dock and entry to the riverboat are handicap accessible. There are stairs inside the boat but there is a balcony and that would be where anyone who couldn’t use the stairs would sit. You can stay outside and watch the boat as it leaves the dock or you can go inside and find your table. It was December and it was cold, I went inside. We met our waiter almost right away as the drinks were brought out. We started with a salad which was served individually. The meal itself was served family styl...Read More

Restaurant | "You will be in love with their food"

When most people think of Nashville they think of country music, when I think of Nashville I think of heaping plates of fried chicken and "Meat and Three". On our last night in Nashville before we headed off to the Ryman Auditorium, we stopped by the Loveless Café. We got there a little before the rest of our group mainly because the traffic was so bad that we could not go back to Gaylord Opryland Hotel after our afternoon out. It was unbelievable. We should have had an hour or so to relax before we had to get going again, but anyway I digress. Instead we went right to the Loveless. There is a motel building which has been converted into a store. At this store they sell some o...Read More

Hotel | "Back after the flood better than ever"

It is hard to imagine as you stand in the magnificently revamped Cascades Lobby that less than 6 months ago it was under 10 feet of water. I will give Gaylord credit for making the best of a really terrible situation. This lobby was nice the last time I was where but now it is better organized and easier to maneuver. There is a great sitting area with a phenomenal glass sculpture ala Dale Chihuly in the center. Check in happens on both sides of the lobby and a new and expanded guests (VIP) services is on the left side as you enter the lobby. Since I was here on a press trip, I was a VIP, don’t you love it!In the case of my particular room I have a slight complaint about the fact that it wa...Read More
