    Prosperity steak was great. So was Philly cheesesteak. The side salad is incredible. Totally worth it.

    Though it is a steakhouse, all three in our party ordered seafood or trout. All items were delicious. I highly recommend it.

    We arrived about 20 minutes early and the hostess went ahead and checked us in. After several large parties without reservations were seated before us, I checked on our table. They forgot about us. We waited over 5 minutes for our drink order to be taken and they were slow to come out (only one was alcoholic). Over half of the prime rib special was inedible fat and was not seared or seasoned, the extra sauce was forgotten and we had to hunt our waiter down to ask for things. The filet was very tender but had little flavor. The Prosperity steak was by far the best item ordered at our table. Not sure we would eat here again and if we do I don’t think steak will be ordered.

    We enjoyed our time at Cherokee Grill and Steakhouse. The warm bread that comes out before the meal was delicious and all of our steaks were good. While my steak was cooked perfectly - others in my party (who had wanted medium rare) were a bit disappointed - but still enjoyed their meals none the less. We would return again in the future!

    We were able to get in quickly after making a reservation on OpenTable and we were waited on promptly. The steaks we got were cooked perfectly and the Mac and cheese and nevas potatoes were great sides. We will be back next time we are in the Gatlinburg area!

    Service wasn’t super fast, saw a server for order taking and then for our bill. We got the seafood platter and it was okay, shrimp were a bit dry and our cod was kinda fishy tasting. Steak was amazing! The ambiance was great as well!

    Went here twice in the same week. Food was so good it was addicting. The waiter the second time was better than the first, but good staff overall. I wasn’t a fan of one of my drinks and they got me a different one immediately. So happy with my experience, definitely will come again! Meals: Prosperity steak New York Strip steak Tomahawk steak Neva potatoes side Broccoli

    Got seated promptly and then forgotten. Left after 10 minutes. Not a peep from anyone on the way out. The kitchen is open to the dining room so seeing many of the staff on their phones may explain it. Got dining points though.

    Food was great. Ambiance was great. Service was poor. Waited forever for the waitress to bring us silverware, waited over 45 mins for her to bring the check, then once she brought the check, she circled the gratuity amount. After, she stood over me as I paid my bill and watched the tip amount I gave. Food and ambiance was amazing. Service very poor.

    Steaks were delicious and well prepared to our likings. Service was good except they sat 4 tables with same waitress within 5 minutes of each other. That made the service not excellent as our waitress was trying to be attentive to all tables at once. We will go back for food and give it another chance because it food and drinks were great.

    My family and I had a great evening dining at Cherokee grill! We are visiting on vacation and this was one of our favorite dinners! Our waiter was fantastic and he knew the menu very well in helping us decide the best meals. The spinach and artichoke dip was a delicious choice to start with. We all ended up getting steak for our entrees and it was cooked perfect to our liking. I will definitely come back here if we visit this area again!
