Been here many times over the years. Good pretty good. Tonight waited a long time for serve. Wine came too warm in a dripping wet and warm wine glass. Water glass had a nasty film in it. Saw it after I drank half of it. Gross. Credit card declined. Called my bank and they said it was good. She tried... More

We stopped by to check it out because we'll be staying there in December. Our waitress Tarina was fantastic, friendly, efficient and bubbly! The lamb burger was incredible! Nachos very good too. The pear martini was yummy. My husband had the fall off the bone ribs, delish!! Can't wait to go back in December!

Slow service, average food. For a hotel that hosts conventions, one would expect that they would have prompt service in the restaurants. The wait was interminable.

This place is at the lower level of the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Hotel. It serves really good chicken, with the Maryland rub. Burgers were also outstanding and the service absolutely the best!

Waited in line for 15 minutes even though the resturant was half full. They have outside seating in the atrium but they closed it because they didn't have enough servers. I asked why they shut down their best seating versus the closed off area inside and the actually agreed and said it didn't make sense but the manager said to... More

Went to this restaurant on two occassions this week. The first was with a party that was staying at the hotel for a convention. On this visit, I found the servers to be very rude and unaccomading. On the second visit I came in by myself and had a better experience with that server. Food is priced way to high... More

Overall, National Pastime fits the bill for a hotel sports bar. Lots of TVs (was great during the Olympics), a decent beer selection and the food is just fine, nothing exciting. Have experienced much worse in my travels.
