    Overall food was delicious atmosphere intimate and romantic. Our server was intuitive to our needs and insightful when it came to wine selections, oysters and specials. This is by far the best restaurant in Gatlinburg for fine dining we loved it and will definitely come back.

    What a gem in the Smokies. Who would have thought a seafood restaurant in Gatlinburg would have the best lump crab, maybe above Marylands signature dish. The bacon cheddar grits as a side is a must have. Our table overlooked the water, it was amazing. Service was hands down better than expected at a fine dining place.

    Wonderful classy seafood restaurant amongst a busy touristy area. The service was top notch- attentive and friendly. Food was very fresh and high quality. Surprisingly it was not packed like others located on the Parkway. I ordered the broiled seafood dinner which came with a choice of side. I went with the Mac and cheese which was okay. Hubby also had side of onion rings and devoured them. We had two kids dinners of fried shrimp and chicken tenders. The chicken was more like strips but was real meat that wasn't processed. The kids enjoyed their meals very much. We originalkt had a table with 4 chairs but requested window the view of the creek. It was nice to watch the wildlife between the meal. Bread basket was a nice variety with good mini croissants. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a nice dinner out.

    We generally visit here each year during our Gatlinburg trip. Fantastic seafood and good drinks. The setting is also very nice along the river. My one critique would be the need for more custom cocktails, particularly bourbon/whiskey, to go along with the large wine list.

    My wwife , to my surprise, ordered the spicy shrimp and grits. She usually would not do that. She loved the shrimp and not the grits. My son in law ordered the same dish. He ate all of his and said it was perfect. My daughter said she could "cut her steak with a fork". I had the fried oysters which made me think of New England. Overall service was excellent and with a smile. Great place to eat!!

    My wife and I loved the looks of the restaurant when we walked in, and it only got better from there. Our server, Greg, was outstanding, as was every single item we ordered. I had the broiled seafood platter and my wife had the fried oysters and shrimp combo. VERY generous portions served nice and hot. I also had a Caesar salad (with anchovies) and my wife had a cup of gumbo, which was spicy, just like we prefer. One thing common in Gatlinburg is lack of parking and Chesapeake’s is no exception. We had to pay $10 to park in a lot right next door (there is no on-street parking). This, however, would never keep us from going back

    Just in at the front desk took great care of us and made sure we had a great view for our anniversary. He was very friendly and helpful. I believe blue is the lady who took us to our table and she was also overly friendly and nice. My husband and I both enjoyed the fresh Fish entrées we got. They were both on the special menu for the night. we split a cup of crab bisque for an appetizer and it was very good. My husband had a coffee ice cream pie dessert that he really enjoyed and the lemon cream Brulé was very filling but good good taste for summer

    It was my Birthday and we had a reservation but I did not request a River view. We had to wait about ten minutes so we had cocktails at the bar. We were seated at the best table in the restaurant . The view was spectacular ! Our waiter was friendly and very helpful with suggestions . Drinks were reasonably priced, portions are generous . Food fantastic🙂

    Family night out. We love this restaurant for its fresh seafood. My daughter was a little disappointed in her scallops. They lacked presentation and some sort of sauce or garnish. The halibut was excellent!!! And my husbands stuffed lobster was great. The Delaware pie was sub par this time. We had had it before and it was delicious. This time there was only one bite of crust ad the ice cream was almost freezer burned taste. The other dessert was excellent—the Italian cream cake
