Food was good, plain and expensive. I ate there only once and then went next door to the mall. The atmosphere in the atrium was wonderful with the water and fish. It is just fun and worth it one time.

Four of us on a ladies vacation decided to eat lunch here when we visited Opryland Hotel for a few hours. It was a great spot for lunch. 2 of our group had the Salad with Shrimp and the other 2 of us had the steak sandwich. Portions were generous and our server Saad was very friendly and attentive.

My daughter and I enjoyed a nice dinner here after we saw a show at The Grand Ole Opry. The food was very good and the atmosphere was beautiful.

We had breakfast one morning before the convention began and ordered off the menu. I mentioned Gluten-free and the staff was very knowledgeable about what I could have on the menu. They were able to swap any bread item on the menu for GF bread so I could enjoy any dish I wanted. I got the Egg breakfast sandwich without... More

We were enjoying our trip to Gaylord Opryland Hotel. We were looking for a vegetarian lunch. The menu at Cascades offered hamburgers but not vegetarian. Our server, Hannah, said that she would put in a special order for veggie burgers for us. What a great lunch. Look at the picture below. Humongous! There were handcut fries on the side and... More

The breakfast buffet at Cascades inside the Opryland Resort is excellent, if you're prepared to wait a long time and pay a lot for it.

We new in advance this was a pricey place but inside the Gaylord is so awesome with all the plants and waterfalls, it was well worth it. Tasty steak sandwich and the pineapple side was perfectly ripe and juicy. My husband's salad was huge and good. Service friendly, prompt, and the seating is well done for private conversations.

I ate breakfast at this restaurant. The wait was long to get a table (about 45 min) so if you come for a convention, plan ahead. But the food was great and so was the service. We met clients here and it was a nice place to eat and have a meeting at the same time.

Pay 5x more for breakfast with below average food and weak service. Staying at the hotel for a convention. Rather than leaving the compound to find breakfast, we decided to try the Cascades. My wife went with the breakfast buffet. Scrambled eggs that tasted like they were artificial. I had the Tennessee omelet which was skimpy on the ham. Our... More
