Living in this area for the last 9 years we have been told to try Cherokee Steak House several times. We went for the first time about a month ago. It was not what I expected in a steak. It tasted just like the steaks I make at home with McCormick steak seasoning. I was hoping for a much better... More

Floors, chairs, high chairs, menus, and tables all greasy/dirty. Hated to even put my daughter's clean car seat carrier in the high chair that had years worth of dirt caked on it. Lettuce in salad looked anemic. Steak was flavorless and charred despite ordering it medium. Waitress offered to get me another steak because it was clearly burnt. The second... More

We visited this establishment looking for quality steak in the Nashville "area". We drove 30 miles to eat here while at a conference in Nashville. It is a quaint restaurant surrounded by a boat dock with house boat slips. There is an outside patio, but the people there were being enticed by the ducks to feed them rolls. We asked... More

The two servers who handled our large banquet group were great. Its hard to serve that many people and they handled it well. To make life easy we were given 3 choices, chicken, fried catfish or steak. Its a steak place so I of course got a steak. It was a thin piece, - cooked to my order. For banquet... More

This place is very close to our house to my husband and I like to visit. The food is good and the view is not bad either. We like that you can bring your own liquor and have a nice dinner.

The food was ok. Price was reasonable. I am sure the atmosphere during the day and when boating can take place would be better. There were many large groups, so the restaurant was kinda noisy. They ran out of rolls. You also can not order any alcohol with your meal. However, you can bring in your own wine or liquor... More

This appears to be an older restaurant but was well run with great service and good food! Hubby & I had dinner here on Valentine's Day. It definitely was off the beaten path. It took us about 25 minutes once we exited off the interstate. Dee was our waitress, she was very attentive without being intrusive. Hubby ordered prime rib,... More

The restaurant was very clean. The ambiance was perfect. We were seated quickly; there were a lot of customers, at 6:00 in the afternoon. There were four of us for dinner. I had their stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer and Prime Rib for my entree. I was able to have a, rare end cut, which is almost impossible in any... More

Restaurants in the area aren't known for their ability to cater to private groups. "Sure, we can accommodate you" a place may say but what they mean is, "we'll move tables around for your group of 17 and give you one server who will be inebriated during your meal.* We don't know what we're doing." Cherokee on the other hand... More
