This restaurant is in a beautiful open atrium that is in the heart of 9 acres of lush gardens and waterfalls. I had good service from Candice and ordered the Crazy Ari special roll off the sushi menu. Tempura shrimp, crab, cucumber, avocado, masago and Sriracha sauce. Delicious choice and a relaxing afternoon.

Cascades is located inside the Gaylord Opryland Hotel, in the atrium behind the main lobby. It’s a beautiful spot. The food here was more than satisfying, but when you factor in the exquisite surroundings, it makes for a great place to meet friends and chat. I did especially enjoy the breakfast buffet. Nothing to complain about.

Visited area because of its reputation and the fact my father had a great Buffet breakfast there some time ago. Unfortunately he said the quality had slipped, leaving a poor, minimal and lacklustre buffet , but still left with a five star breakfast price of $139 usd for 4 people. Only saving grace was the great customer service of our waitress from Georgia, but unfortunately it does not counter the poor food and price.

Although our stay at this hotel was less than optimal, the highlight was having dinner at this restaurant before we left. The salmon with crisp carrots and peas in a light sauce with noodles was so flavorful and just delicious. The cheesecake with strawberries and a pretzel crust for dessert was out of this world. Thank you for making our day!

The breakfast buffet was good, but not 60+ dollars worth for 2 people. Nice atmosphere, and our waitress was very nice. Just a bit overpriced in my opinion. It had the usual breakfast options. I did like the fact you could order an omelette and it was delivered to your table ... without you standing in a line.
