    Gatlinburg is absolute heaven for folks wanting to overspend on below-average food, served by temps more interested in their texting. Cherokee Grill stands out because it just doesn't fit in. The food is very good, the service is quick, accurate and non-obtrusive, and the prices are downright great. Come here if you want a great meal out. Skip here if you want a more traditional Gatlinburg experience.

    Cherokee Grill was delicious and a very relaxing and somewhat upscale place in Gatlinburg! Our steaks were well-cooked and the sides were craveworthy. Our son enjoyed his steak and fries. The service was quick and very friendly! We had an awesome dinner out

    Food was good… we had the fried chicken and the New York Strip. Both were prepared as ordered and were good. I was surprised by the single small piece of friend chicken - I didn’t expect that. Long wait for the food to come out. Service was very good - our server was knowledgeable and friendly.

    We went to Cherokee for my birthday and the service was fantastic and so was the atmosphere! The sirloin was amazing and we both enjoyed our Caesar salads. The only trying we found was that the rotisserie chicken was dry and inedible. My girlfriend didn’t touch it after the first bite, but was offered a box to go. We don’t like to make a big scene and based on how busy they were, we didn’t want to send food back to make a big stir. Overall the experience as good and we will try something new next time.

    Was very much looking forward to dining here based on its location and ambiance. Even with a reservation and checking in early, we waited over an hour and half plus a half hour past our reservation time. We decided to sit at the bar and kill some time. Terrible customer service, we sat there for over 15 minutes before even being acknowledged or looked at ( bar wasn’t even busy at this time yet). Eventually a different guy came over to ask us about drinks, after finishing the first round we sat there for 45 minutes until being asked again if we wanted another round. After receiving the second round and now past ,y reservation time, I finally received the text. Only to be sat in a booth at the bar with none other than the lacking bartenders as our server. This was not the experience I anticipated nor did I come to sit in the bar and be ignored by the wait staff/bartenders. Complained to manager to be resat, which we were without issue. Second server was much better , didn’t enjoy my food as much as i hoped. My pork was extremely over cooked and hard/chewy. Server never came back to check on us so I ate my wife’s food with her. When the manager came back around i told her about the pork but nothing more was offered or done for us. Paid for a meal i didn’t eat bc it was over cooked and rock hard. Don’t know that we’ll be back

    Everything was good. Not outstanding. The kitchen and bar seemed to be having some issues. Ordered drinks off the menu but the bartender couldn’t replicate the drink twice. Ordered a NY strip but got a ribeye. Cheesecake tasted more like key lime pie.

    Food was just ok for price. Bar service very slow. One of our friends Ordered the Debutante first. Then ordered it again and it looked and tasted totally different. My second martini was served in a brandy class because martini glasses dirty. Our waitress was slow and not very attentive. For price not sure if we’ll come back.

    We chose this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. The ambience of the restaurant was great. Our server, Crystal, was great and attentive. The only issue I had was that I ordered the Prosperity porkchop which was thicker than I prefer and they, as a standard, only cook their porkchops to medium-well instead of well done. I wasn't able to eat the porkchop. The manager, however, made every accommodation to make sure my dining experience could be rectified. I cannot say that the description of the porkchop as far as how it is prepared and its thickness wasn't included on the menu. So that may very well have been an oversight on my part and not the fault at all of the restaurant. I would definitely return to enjoy other items on the menu.

    We got there at 7pm. Got our food at 8:10pm so that wasn’t great. When food came out my steak wasn’t cooked correctly. They re cooked it and it took about 30mins to get it back. Once I got it, it was ok not really seasoned well but tender. Overall just ok. We have been here maybe twice in past year or two, but this time wasn’t that great.

    This was one of the best experiences we have had on Christmas Day. We've been coming to Gatlinburg for many years for supper on Christmas. There weren't many choices for a long time but that has changed over the years. This years experience was absolutely fabulous. The employees at The Cherokee Grill were kind and efficient. My family enjoyed our meal and time together. Thank you to the staff!!

    The food was fantastic! We had the oysters and bruschetta as appetizers. They were excellent! My son had the blue cheese steak (medium rare) and it was like steak flavored butter…ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS. I had the prime rib and it was PHENOMENAL. We tried a bunch of the different sides—-the Mac and cheese, the grits, loaded baked potato, sweet potato and had three different desserts—the brownie a la mode, pumpkin cake and the heath cheesecake. The brownie was the best, the grits were my favorite, but my son enjoyed the Mac and cheese the most. Our server was fantastic and with everything we ordered, the meal came out to $145, which I thought was reasonable considering how much we ordered. I would ABSOLUTELY eat here again and highly recommend it.

    The staff was courteous and friendly. The ambiance your typical steakhouse decor and the food your typical meat and potatoes. The menu doesn’t really provide you with anything exciting and new to try. The place has good food but stuck in the 90’s when it comes to flavors.

    The Manhattan filet that I ordered was very tough. I’m guessing it was a bad cut, as the neighboring table voiced their disappointment in the same entree. I ate none of it past the first bite, and was given a $5.00 discount on my check. I was offered a new entree, but my family had finished eating and I didn’t want to eat alone. The service was very slow, so I was unable to alert the server that my entree was inedible in time to correct the order in a timely manner. Very disappointing to pay $40 for an entree that I was unable to eat.

    We came for Christmas Eve and we had a wonderful experience. My husband and I both had the filet with boursin cheese and it was excellent and cooked to temp. Everything was well seasoned but not too salty, which can be an issue at other restaurants. Even the $15 chicken fingers was a large portion and the fried coating was fabulous, a little kick and super crisp. Clearly made from scratch. Also recommend the crab bisque, delish. Cheyenne was a wonderful server. We would definitely return.

    Enjoyed atmosphere, good choices, great food. Good was very slow to come. Our server was very good at first but assigned other tables so she ‘lost us’ - had to wait a very long time for desserts and then even longer for check/change. Really impacted our overall experience.

    Ceasar dressing was an oil, no creamy, and dripping off lettuce. Seafood salad not much to write home about. Steak was excellent, but have had just as good cheaper.
