Shagor Indian Cuisine offers guests a variety of entrees typical to India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The atmosphere is casual, but the seating is a little sparse as the building was originally designed for another sort of restaurant. Despite this, the owners have done a nice job transforming the interior. Unlike many Indian restaurants, Shagor knows how to turn up the heat for guests who like their food a little on the spicy side. The curry menu includes such options as bhuna, vindaloo, cylon and rogon josh. Regardless of how hot you like it, the chicken tikka massala is a stand-out out among the Indian restaurants in Middle Tennessee.

The convincing oasis setting at Cascades almost makes you forget you're in a luxury hotel. The tranquil fountains and exotic plants lend themselves perfectly to the seafood menu. Guests of the Opryland Hotel rave about the food and fine service here, but this clever upscale dining experience isn't for hotel guests only. It's perfect for a romantic dinner or business luncheon, and you will love the soft-shell crabs, salmon steaks and scallop ravioli. Start your meal with oysters on the half shell and top off the event with something from the dessert cart, which features a delightfully sinful collection of cakes, pies and tortes.
You may not think of steak houses as romantic, but Old Hickory Steakhouse inside the famed Opryland Hotel is more than a steak house. The rich wood accents and mood lighting do have a romantic quality, but you'll really fall in love with the food. Popular menu items include Filet Mignon and Prime Rib, but you'll find New York strip, Porterhouse and T-bone steaks as well. Those with an aversion to red meat should try the fresh seafood and poultry dishes.
