Seafood
Chesapeake’s West derives much of its authentic Eastern Shore qualities from décor that features genuine nautical antiques and artifacts. Pairing this cozy, seaside ambiance with welcoming service and fresh ingredients has made it the perfect spot for creating memorable moments.

As part of the Copper Cellar Family of Restaurants, we offer fresh seafood that’s sourced daily, local, handcrafted microbrews, an extensive wine list and prime-graded beef. We are known for live Maine lobster, Maryland Crab cakes, a variety of fresh fish, and assorted oyster selection.

Chesapeake’s features a raw bar, Sunday brunch, and happy hour in the bar/lounge. Full menus — including gluten free options are available and can be enjoyed on our patio. Free onsite parking and a courtesy shuttle is available for local hotels.

Whether you come for the food, the drinks, or the atmosphere, you’re in for an unforgettable experience.

Buffet only on Easter, Mother's & Father's Days, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    Chesapeake oysters hit the table cold, the oyster shaker needs to be fired for using a dirty knife. Shells all in the oysters. The clam chowder was the only decent thing and that’s sad. Place is going downhill.

    Mother’s Day Buffett isn’t the way to enjoy what is a good restaurant. You can’t pull off a buffet and showcase the quality of your food. Suggest Chesapeake keep with their Brunch Menu on Sundays. It’s a winner, Buffet not so much at $50pp.

    Wonderful lunch with lifelong friends. Hostess was so kind when seating us making sure outdoor dining table (5 in our party) was satisfactory as two members of our group are handicapped (use canes). I cannot say enough about the service provided by Anthony. Outstanding. He was professional, considerate, and very personable. He kept our glasses and cups full throughout the meal. Anthony went above and beyond and was solicitous of the quality of our food as was the Manager. Lovely day! Recommend highly.

    This is definitely one of my favorite Knoxville restaurants. The food is always great, the service is wonderful, and the restaurant offers an upscale casual environment. Whenever I'm in the Knoxville area, I plan a meal at Chesapeake's. I definitely recommend this place for a special occasion or just a lovely night out.

    We had a friend come in from out of town and thought this would be nice. I had the grilled oysters- they arrived cold and did not taste all that good. We had the old bay crab claws - they were over seasoned. Honestly I ate them because of how much we paid for them. I had a bowl of chowder- this was pretty good. I really enjoyed it. The waitress was fantastic- I apologize for not getting her name. We didn’t tell her about the problems with the food.

    We always love the food @Chesapeake’s. Mike was especially attentive to us through the chaos of families dining from the buffet & we rewarded him well. It would be especially nice if I could have had the option of 1/2 lunch. I enjoyed a margarita, 1/2 small bowl of soup, 2 shrimp to peel & a serving spoon of lobster Mac cheese, topped off with 1/2 piece of strawberry cake. Hubby enjoyed his full plate. I saw others who had as little as I. (I can’t imagine other Grandmothers who could eat more.) Thank you once again for a memorable experience with family. 💙

    We had the most amazing meal and service that we have received in a quality restaurant in months. The server Vanessa made several recommendations and we listened. Everything she recommended was over the top in every way. She’s the most knowledgeable server we have ever had dining out. We told her we would be back and we would definitely ask for her again. We also told ourselves if she’s off that day we will eat somewhere else because she’s that good. We’ve eaten at 5 star restaurants many many times but this meal and service turned out to be a TEN in every way. Thank-You!!!!

    Went there for a birthday brunch, but was not aware that they only do brunch on Sunday. Even the waitress said it should be on the menu but it isn’t. Food was expensive. Food was small portions. Food was cold. This was to be a birthday brunch and it was clearly stated that on the reservation but not one person said anything about celebrating anything or asking if we’re celebrating anything. Complete waste of a lot of money and time never will go there again.
