Great seafood in a great city

My partner and I visited Knoxville for the first time and were very impressed with the charming downtown area and particularly the terrific seafood at Chesapeake's. We will be back for sure.

When we asked at our hotel for a great seafood place this was the immediate response. We're happy we took the recommendation. We are seafood lovers. the Chesapeake did not disappoint us.

The seafood here is always fresh and good. The furnishings are a bit dated, but don't let that steer you away from enjoying good seafood. The crab bisque and crab cakes are some of the best I have ever tasted. The service is average, but the food is excellent.

Was fortunate to be part of a group of 30 family members who decided to eat at The Chespeake's Seafood restaurant in Knoxville, TN. What an outstanding surprise to find excellent seafood in the eastern part of TN. The restaurant had a great atmosphere, excellent wait staff and OUTSTANDING seafood that was flown in that morning from the Chesapeake bay.... More

Reminded me of seafood restaurants I grew up going to. Good fresh seafood (as fresh as you can get in Tn), well prepared and presented by professional wait staff. Went for Easter Brunch and was pleasantly surprised. Definitely a return visit when in Knoxville.

Doesn't smell like a seafood restaurant. The ahi tuna is particularly good. I've had several items off their menu and have been disappointed by none. We'll return.

This week two colleagues from work and myself were in Knoxville on business. We all enjoyed Chesapeake's and comment on the way out the door how surprising it was to find such good seafood in Knoxville. The young lady that waited on us was experienced and first class. She told us she had worked at this restaurant for eight years.... More
