Great upscale restaurant tucked away on the north end of town. Has a number of rooms so they can accomodate couples, and large or small groups. Had my daughter's rehersal dinner here and have been there with groups and individually. Always get great food and service.

Super fresh seafood. The best oysters in town. The restaurant has been there for years and has really established a great place in Knoxville.

We were passing through Knoxville on a road trip, and the Holiday Inn front desk staff across the road recommended Chesapeake's. Our family of three had Scallops, Crab Cakes, and Scampi Pasta.
