If you like Calhouns then this place is the same

Nothing special, if you like Calhouns, it's owned by the same people. The food isn't that much different. The steak with blue cheese was good but still nothing special.

We lucked out and went in low season so we didn't have a wait. This place will have a long wait in high season. The reason is the food and location. It's located right on the Gatlinburg strip. We usually eat there and then walk the strip. There is parking right across the street for 8 dollars if you don't... More

We always make it a point to eat at the Cherokee Grill. It's location is great as we make it a point to stay at the 'Park end of town'. Food and service are great here also. I highly recommend the grilled pork chop and butternut squash.

After reading reviews on here about how great the food is, we just had to put it on our must-do list and I am SO glad we did!! It is honestly a toss-up between my favorite part of my meal.. The handmade-at-the-bar lemonade (SOOOO good!) or the spicy baked mac n cheese with spinach. Oh man. That macaroni was heavenly!... More

We stopped here yesterday for dinner. It was an utter disappointment. We had high hopes as this establishment falls under the umbrella of Calhouns/Copper Cellar, but we were completely disappointed. We ordered the crab stuffed mushrooms which were $10. We were served 4 small mushrooms. Not exactly appetizing. The menu has several items, but nothing that stands out as an... More

Great herb bread to start the meal. Cup of crab bisque was very tasty, rich, lots of bites of tender crab. Herb crusted trout was perfect. Neva's potatoes were recommended by the B&B owner where we are staying, also loved and glad I chose as my side. My husband had the fresh seafood salad which he enjoyed, rated very good... More

I have been to Cherokee Grill several time, when I've been in Gatlinburg. I've had their steaks several times and by far my favorite is the Prosperity Steak with the worcestershire butter. All of my steak selections have been cooked precisely how I ordered them, medium rare. Not every eatery can seem to master the art of grilling steak. Here,... More

This Steak House is a Landmark in the town of Gatlinburg, and for good reason! The facade of the restaurant is beautiful grey stacked stone. Large windows overlook the Main Drag and a quaint little Shopping area. It is located at the far end of town, just before you head out of town and parking is a breeze, as there... More

Dinner was really good! We sat by the window and watched the chair lift going up and down the mountain. It does get a little loud at times but the food is worth it! Be sure and call ahead and make sure they have your name written down. We called and put our names on the list but someone forgot... More

The food here is good, though sadly when I went I had little of an appetite and thus wasn't able to enjoy much of it. It's nice for a fancier dinner out.
