    It was good. Filet was over cooked and did not have much flavor. The lobster was excellent. Our waitress was so nice and took care of us very well.

    We went for my husband’s 50th birthday. After requesting a fairly private table for the occasion, the staff tried to sit us at a four top in the center of the dining room. To their credit, when I asked for a different table they did happily oblige. Our server was very polite, but seemed very rushed and moved the meal along quickly even after us saying we were there to celebrate and please don’t feel the need to rush for us. The food came out and my husband loved his meal. Mine would have been absolutely fabulous, but it was lukewarm. Tasted delicious, but would have been so much better if it had been served at the correct temperature. Even the autumn squash I ordered was cold - so much so that the butter they placed on it was still intact and did not melt at all. Wish I could give this a higher rating. Might be willing to try again!

    I really enjoyed our meal at The Cherokee Grill. It was a nice setting with delicious food. The service could have been a little better but it was a very good experience overall. I would go back! 4.5 stars.

    Food was good - I wish I had known the trout contained small bones as I swallowed one unexpectedly. It was a little too heavily seasoned as well - over powered the taste of the fish. The crab bisque is excellent.

    We had dinner here while visiting Gatlinburg and I must say it was the least enjoyable restaurant we went too. The food and drinks were okay at most. Our waiter was not attentive at all! He delivered our appetizers, then our food and we still did get our silverware or napkins yet after asking twice. My husbands steak was supposed to be well done but it came out rare but since we couldn’t get our waiters attention to fix it. We overheard the bartender talking to other regulars about how he was fired from his previous job for being accused of stealing a watch. I have to say that he was the most attentive to the guests. I would no recommend this restaurant.

    Food as usual was great. Ambiance the same. Waiter was terrible. Nice guy but timing throughout Neal was bad. Appetizer before drinks, entree before salad, used dishes left on table. Food cold after serving salad. Complained to manager and she said thanks for the input. Should have given a three.

    We made a reservation here for our anniversary, and we were seated immediately upon arrival. The food was 10/10, the atmosphere was good, the staff were friendly and respectful, facility very clean. It was quite crowded and busy (noisy) but overall a great experience. Highly recommend the ribeye!

    Waitress was slow. We sat waiting to be greeted it seems like 5 plus minutes. We ordered cocktails and our appetizer came before our drinks were delivered. My kids drinks were not refreshed til after the meal was finished. It really wasn’t that busy at the time we were there. Maybe she was having a bad night. Our food was excellent!!

    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.

    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.
