Nice, quiet place with great food and service

Stopped in for lunch and ordered the salmon with sauteed spinach and a side of their local tomatoes, which were excellent. Service was perfect, prices were good and atmosphere is dim lighting so would be a great date place. The lunch menu was not the same as the dinner menu (basically a shorter... read more

Chesapeake's is wonderful! I love fresh seafood and this is one of the best places I have tried that doesn't have direct access to the ocean. I ordered the crab cakes and they were some of the best I have ever had. Will be going back for sure!

This place is the best! I arrived early, before opening, for a business lunch meeting. They let me come in and charge my phone while I waited for the rest of my party (about 45 minutes). We had a party of 8 for lunch. The service was excellent, and the recommendations were spot on! The dishes were all reasonably-priced, and... More

This is one of my favorite places to go have seafood. Today my family and I went for their Sunday brunch and we were very pleased. My husband had the steak and salmon, our son had the waffles and chicken and I had the crab cake eggs Benedict which was fabulous! Besides the great food, the wait staff was very... More

We have eaten at Chesapeake's Restaurant for several years and have enjoyed every meal we have had there. It is in a great location in downtown Knoxville and has very good food and staff.

We West Coasties can be picky because we are used to fresh seafood. The general menu is pretty standard although a bit too much fried stuff for my liking. The specials were a welcome addition and I went with the grilled Grouper, my wife & daughter split steak and lobster. Everything was prepared well, salads were cold and crisp, service... More

I walked here with friends when staying 10 minutes away on our way through the area. The service and food were tops. Although we were dressed quite casually (walking in summer heat), we were treated courteously and pleasantly. The server had an excellent knowledge of the menu and gave us good advice. The meal was excellent and was priced reasonably.... More
