    Perfect as always. Best place to eat in Gatlinburg. I wish the Copper family company would open some up in other places like they have their other restaurants, that are not anywhere near as good as Cherokee grill.

    We visited Cherokee Grill 5 years ago and had such an excellent experience, that drove all the way from Knoxville to have dinner there. The food was as good as we remember and the service was excellent.

    My boyfriend and I had dinner here Saturday night. I was a bit concerned that they didn't seat us right away, even with the reservation, but the wait was only ten minutes tops. Our Waiter was in training but had absolutely wonderful wine suggestions and went above and beyond to help our tasting of different ones, even bringing a cup of coffee beans to help clear the palette. My boyfriend is hard to please with steaks and meat as he is quite the foodie, but he said his prime rib was cooked absolutely perfectly. I had the filet mignon with blue cheese and a loaded baked potato. Both were lovely. I would skip the salads, it seemed like they rinsed the lettuce but didn't spin it off enough, so the dressing was sliding off and tasted rather watery. The calamari appetizer was very good. We wanted dessert, but we were too full once we got to the end of the meal. Overall a nice experience.

    Unfortunately it was a long wait for our food. 4 of 5 dishes came out cold. Fried chicken could have been better. Soup was good and waitress was very nice despite long waits.

    Great service and food! My wife and I both had the Boursin stuffed filets and our steaks were cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious!! Great cuts of meat, really large side salads and the side portions are generous as well. Come hungry! Our waitress Amanda was super friendly and knowledgeable. We highly recommend this steakhouse when you are in Gatlinburg. We will be back!

    Calamari appetizer was excellent. Husband and I had trout special which was very good. My son had fried chicken also very good. My oldest son had Philly cheesesteak which wasn’t as good. He said meat was greasy but dry at the same time. All the sides and salads we ordered were excellent.

    Just okay is probably the best I can say. Food was decent service was poor. Mains and sides were all messed up. Couldn’t get the right salad dressing from the server. Upon being seated the server said “be right with you” 3 times before we could actually place our order. We wouldn’t go back.

    Good food great service . We’re a family of 5, kids meals were great . Crab bisque soup was excellent . Both my husband and I got the seafood broil . While heavy on the butter , the seafood was very good ! TN bleu cheese grits were also tasty ! If you’re looking for a more decadent place to eat you found it !

    Very disappointed in the food quality versus the prices. We have dined several times before and loved the place, but we decided last night to cross Cherokee Grill off our list of favorite restaurants in Gatlinburg. Our server also behaved as if we were bothering her.

    Although I had a bad cut of sirloin (things happen) our meals and drinks were great and the service was fantastic. The concern about my steak from the kitchen manager who followed up with an apology email was amazing! I will definitely be back.

    Food was excellent as usual but the service was beyond horrible. Our server -Robin? was slow. Other tables seated long after us were brought bread and drinks and we were still waiting. Then we received only drinks but no bread. We requested some and she said fine..returned almost 15 min later we asked again and she said oh she was waiting for the one fresh from the oven, left and brought us one stone cold. Must have been a cold oven. She messed up our appetizer but didn’t know because she didn’t bring it and didn’t check on us afterwards either. We had to stop the manager and tell her. We spent most of the meal with nothing to drink. It was our 23 wedding anniversary and well she did a great job of ruining the meal. The food was great from the kitchen, host who sat us was amazing but the meal itself was miserable. That being said a lot of the servers around us were doing an amazing job so I guess if you go your experience will depend on the luck of the draw.

    The food was good but we thought it was a little odd that they put cheese on everything. Strangely it worked really well on the steak, but not so well on the fish. The service was outstanding.
