It was a horrible experience and ruined Valentines Day. Service was horrible and it started when walked in and being ignored for 5 mins with people standing in front of us and not talking. Then the service was slow and I ran out of tea 4 times. By the end I begged 3 people for tea and even then never got it. We gave them a chance even after a bad experience many months ago but they have not fixed the service issue. Stay away!

Food was really nice. Great fresh fish and fresh oysters. Well done. Service was slow for a lunch. It would have been fine for dinner, but time pressures for a work-day lunch. Also, there were nasty flying bugs that were dive-bombing our food and buzzing our heads that were terribly annoying and gross. We told our waiter and the host and they recognized that they had the problem and needed to fix it. They need to fix it for sure!!! Otherwise, all good. Probably try it again to see if the varmints have been slain!!

Everything was great! Only one problem is they didn’t have any hot chocolate but our server went out of his way trying to make a homemade version!

Our server Julie was the best. She answered all our questions and made the whole dining experience very enjoyable. My wife had the steamed shrimp and I had York River Oysters on the half shell and the red snapper. I didn’t care for the cream sauce on the snapper but overall, we had a great time.

The food at Chesapeake's is consistently phenomenal. We live on the Gulf Coast where fresh seafood is a staple, but still make it a must-do to dine at Chesapeake's whenever we get back to Knoxville.
