Knoxville is half way on our trip up north from Florida. We enjoyed our meal so much, that we stopped again on the way home. Although we checked out the online menu, we ordered off he daily menu both times. The Grouper Piccata was excellent. I had the Steak & Twin Lobster Tails. The Caesar Salad & Iceberg Wedge were...

We were impressed with all the employees from the hostess, the waiter and the runner who delivers the food. My wife raved about the gumbo which was as good as that in Louisiana but lacked shrimp but had plenty of sausage She had a generous quantity of fried shrimp that like my fish had a breading that needed more flavor....

We picked Chesapeake's mainly because it had a good recommendation and was close to our hotel. Turned out to be a good choice. Very pleasant service, nice choices of fish and seafood available, and a modestly priced collection of agreeable wines. I had the Maine Lobster. Besides taste,my main criterion for whether it's been cooked just right is whether the... More

Hard to believe good fresh seafood in Knoxville but it is true. Our waiter was extraordinary and made our dining experience even more pleasurable. This was my second time and it was as good as the first, if in Knoxville and you want seafood be sure to go to Chesapeake's.

My husband and family have been coming to Chesapeake's for years but only on an occasional basis but we have been coming regularly now because of moving closer. We have had seafood from most states and across the world and for Knoxville I don't think the freshness of the seafood can be beat. When you walk into the restaurant check... More

Chesapeake's restaurant is a great place to celebrate a special occasion or for any reason. The food was delicious and the service was wonderful. I recommend the scampi, and the crab cakes. It's also a fun restaurant to eat, chat and just enjoy the atmosphere. We were not rushed or pushed out but were able to enjoy a leisurely dinner... More

i had a large dinner party last week at Chesapeake's and my experience was mixed. We enjoyed the cold appetizers for the table, but although the seafood was fresh, i felt that the dishes were a little rich for me. The staff was very friendly, but were clearly new and amateurs. I did like the wine list.

My husband took me for dinner here on my birthday. As this is a frequented establishment and locally is given high accolades this was my request. They have good seafood at best, but not the rave reviews we had heard. That aside, the seafood is delivered from all destinations daily, so it was fresh. Staff was accommodating and enjoyable, especially... More
