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

For a seafood house in a major metropolitan city in a landlocked state, Cheaspeake's leave much to be desired. Our server was polite and attentive, but it did not make up for the overpriced mediocre food we were served. $11 for a half dozen order of oysters on the half-shell that weren't properly cleaned. Every oyster came with black soot... More

If you want to be assured of perfect service, delicious food, in an atmosphere in which you can actually carry on a conversation, this is the place for you. Most of the employees are long-term. They are career servers and act like it. Very professional at all times - they pay attention to the customer, instead of simply slinging food.... More
