Disappointed

Run down restaurant, too close together seating, and bland food. My husband got a New York strip, very plain. I ordered fried shrimp, it was the equivalent of captain ds shrimp, fries were tasteless and not seasoned. Grilled shrimp had flavor alright, thats where all the salt went. Tarter sauce... read more

I ate at the Cherokee Steak House last night and I really enjoyed it. It is definitely a casual place, food was great and our waiter was very pleasant and helpful. I was a little apprehensive with the reviews but glad I went, would definitely go back again. I had the steak dinner and tried a friend's catfish, both were... More

My husband and I have eaten here many times. I agree with some other reviewers that the former dining room set up was less noisy. My husband is a steak eater and he has always said that the steak is great for steak at a $13 price point. He's never complained. I love the fried catfish. They cook it perfectly;... More

In the main dining room, they have removed the booths down the center to be able to add and combine tables to accommodate larger groups. This has added to the noise level. We were seated near a group of about 20 and they were talking loudly from one end of the tables to the other. This made other groups speak... More

We had eaten here several times in the last 2years since finding this place and always enjoyed the experience and food. This time was our last for a long while. We met friends and we're looking forward to chatting and a nice dinner. They have changed their main dining room since the last time we have been there removing the... More

Had the 18 oz bone in ribeye and King prime rib. Both were showy and delicious! The ducks are VERY friendly and really cute. Super nice wait staff and great scenery. Also, very low key, so don't worry about dressing up.

The ribeye was one of the best that I have ever eaten. It was seasoned just right and cooked to perfection. Our waitress was one of the worst we have ever had. She snapped when we asked for a sweet potato, she slammed our rolls on the table, she literally had us scared to ask for straws. Her attitude was... More

country cooking, steak and potatoes, fried catfish, sweet tea. Good food but it gets very loud in here especially in the summer when folks pull up in their boats and off load for dinner.

Try to go at least 3 times a year and more if possible. Always the best meal and service is tops When we have friends out of town this is our first choice you must go early if you don't want a long wait...but the surroundings are beautiful if you have to wait
