“best red velvet cake”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

I got the stuffed filet of soul and it was delicious. We went for my birthday and they gave me a piece of red velvet cake that was warmed. It was delicious.

“So Much Delicious Food”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Opens at 4:00 p.m. we got there about 6:30 and the line was long. Inside service is very fast. Food is incredible and there is a lot of it. Salads are wonderful. Cheese and crackers on the table. Fresh baked bread basket on table was kept full. Didn't have to ask for anything to be brought to the table. Someone was always watching for drinks or bread to get low and instantly brought more. Slight problem with one of our orders. Staff response more than made up for one small error where the order got delivered to someone else. Can't say enough praises for this place. Kind of pricey but worth it.

“Good food but poor service”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This was our 2nd visit to Ye Olde Steak House. Our first visit was years ago and went well. This visit however was a different story. Our server was awful, not sure if she was having an off night or if she was just that bad.

We had a reservation so we were seated immediately upon arrival. Our drinks were served quickly. However the wait time between being seated and the server actually taking our order was way too long. We never received our appetizer, even though we reminded the server about it twice. One of our meals was never ordered, meaning the rest of us were almost done with our food by the time that person finally got their food. At one point we had to get up and refill our own coffee. When the server would come to the table and we would ask a question or ask for refills she would look at us like a deer in the headlights.

Eventually another server, a very nice man, came and took our desert order.

The food was decent. The rib-eyes were tasty, but not cooked right. On two of the 1/2 was cooked right and the other 1/2 was not. Deserts were very good, we had the key lime pie.

All in all we probably won't go back. We are okay with paying for an expensive meal (appx $30 for a steak and everything is ala cart) as long as we get the level of service that goes along with that price. This was not the case for us. With the delays in service, missing food, etc you would have thought a manager would have visited the table to apologize. That never happened.

“Good steak, great atmosphere”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

The food was good and the atmosphere was better. This place feels like an old style steakhouse. Nothing fancy, not a "prime steak" restaurant but a good steak for the money. Much better than any of the mid level chain steak places. The steaks are large, well cooked and very flavorful. I also had the mushrooms as a side and they were excellent. They are cooked on the grill and had a great charcoal flavor. I would recommend this restaurant. I'll be going back my next trip to knoxville.

“Eating at Ye Olde Steakhouse”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

We had a great time with friends. The atmosphere was wonderful and congenial. The baked potatoes were incredible. Made up for the little-tough steaks. Service was great
