    The food was fantastic and the service was top notch (Steve!) We really enjoyed our meals - everything starting with the warm breadbasket, perfectly chilled wedge salad, nice cocktails and delicious entrees! We were too full for dessert - but I’m sure it is good too! We loved our booth by the river - lovey atmosphere! Thank you!

    Chesapeake was our favorite restaurant visiting Gatlinburg. We ordered Seafood and side salads, which were very large. We sat in a booth overlooking the river. The server was excellent and he was training a new person. I highly recommend this restaurant located in the heart of downtown close to all the action.

We got to see our staff friend from the last time we dined at Chesapeake as well and had a nice time catching up with her. Over all, 5 stars, which is definitely the norm for Gatlinburg Chesapeake!

    My boyfriend and I were in town for the weekend to celebrate both our birthdays and couldn’t have picked a better spot. The food was incredible. It’s so hard to find good seafood when you’re not on the coast but this is it. In addition to the amazing food, our server was the coolest and so kind. He made recommendations and was just an all around great server. We had a great night for our birthdays!

    Excellent food, well-prepared. Would stand up against a nice seafood restaurant in Florida or the Carolinas. Our only complaint was that our server didn't seem to be very well trained - and they mixed up a plate exiting the kitchen. But the manager made it right.

    We came here for our anniversary dinner. We were sat beside the river and it was beautiful! The server was nice. My husband had the lobster and said it was delicious! I had the filet and shrimp. I would have given in 5 stars but I requested medium rare and my steak wasn’t even pink at all. It was really overcooked. The price was reasonable.

    We went two nights in a row. It’s always nice to have a reservation on vacation so that’s what drew us there the first night. We enjoyed fresh oysters, lobster, crab fingers, and trout. Wine selection is great. My son said their cheeseburger was one of the best! Great spot, ask to sit next to the water!
