Steak by the River

We have been here twice and each time was fantastic. The steaks are cooked to perfection, the house salads are delicious. The rolls are buttery and heavenly. I have had the loaded potato and the German style potatoes and both were great. I like the pitcher of tea on the table. Both times we had... read more

Where do I start.. when we arrived we had a wait of about 15 minutes. During this time we watched one server come out and smoke a cigarette and then saw a kitchen staff member do the same. Mind you, this was in front of the building. Next, as we are waiting you can't help to notice how dirty both... More

You will not find a better chop or steak than those prepared by the chef at Cherokee Steak House. Great bread, salads, and homemade dressings. Enjoy!

Very good food with great service. Had steak for 3; was enough to feed several more people. Nice place to take out of town guests.

My fiance and my parents decoded to try this place based on an article on it that was listed in our hotel room magazine that featured food, and things to see and do in lebanon. They used the catchy phrase: "located right next to Reba's house." Needless to say, you can't see Reba's house by no means, & the server... More

Gave this place 1 star the first and only other time we have been here. That was three years ago - swore we would never be back. Fast forward to last week - slow down - I'm getting dizzy... Brother-in-law has a pontoon boat and lives in Mt. Juliet. He has been back and said it was better (read my... More

I went there on a whim yesterday, which was a Saturday late afternoon (5 ish) and I knew it would be busy so I was prepared for a wait. It was only 30 minutes, so I was surprised. Waitress was wonderful, Jeannie, I think was her name. I ordered the club steak, which is proclaimed to be the best tasting... More

Tried this place after driving by it several times.......so glad we did. We split the surf and turf meal, the lobster was so tasty!! It was the best lobster my fiancé and I have ever had, and she's eaten lobster from Mystic, CT!! The steak was very tender and flavorful. You will not be disappointed if you eat here!
