Worth the 15 minute wait...

The crab cakes were REALLY good and made the wait worth it. They were full of crab meat and not much filler. My husband had his like a burger with fries. I had salad of fresh greens, craisins, goat cheese, and small tomatoes with the crab cake added. Both priced at a reasonable $19. We enjoyed that... read more

I don't usually like to write negative reviews but the service here was so bad, I just had to. It was not a busy night and our waitress just couldn't be bothered with us. We had to ask another waitress to take our order, to get us water, get us silverware... We felt like we had to keep asking everyone... More

We stayed at the Gaylord hotel overnight this past weekend and received a food credit with our reservation. Since I had my child with me, we chose National Pastime because I thought it was the best suited sit down for children in the hotel. The food in here is very expensive for a sports bar atmosphere ($16 for a cheeseburger?),... More

I had great service one day and lackluster service the next. I can say the same with the food I ordered.

The crab cake sandwich was good and reasonably priced. Waitress was very attentive. Would not hesitate to eat there again

I only dined at Pastime's once - so I can only base my review on that. First the Gaylord National is a Pepsi establishment, so not one of my favorites for soda beverages. I chose the fish and chips. Two pieces of fish that were very small and a small handful of fries. I was satisfied, but not full -... More

Had beers and nachos. The beer was decent but nachos were some of the worst I have ever had in my life. They put that liquid cheese on them... really?! Very bland and very nasty.

Friendly bartender and good menu of drinks. Tons of TV's and lots of action. I did not eat here so I can not comment on the food. However, the atmosphere was upbeat and the tables were full.

I was there with my group on several evenings for drinks and food and a couple of meals at lunch time. The service was friendly and very patient. I loved the crab cake sandwiches! Very tasty.

The last time I visited National Pastime, I was not a fan. I guess I ordered the wrong thing. This time, I ate at the bar, and although the beer was expensive, I was impressed with the selection. I ordered a burger, which was cooked and seasoned very nicely. While this place is a bit pricey for a sports bar,... More
