    We absolutely love this restaurant. It’s our favorite in Gatlinburg. Well made cocktails, the food is always fresh and delicious. Jason was our server and he made sure we didn’t have to wait or ask for anything. Wonderful personality. He made celebrating my husband’s birthday so much fun. When we plan a trip to the Smokies, I always make reservations at Chesapeake’s on the app “ Open Table.” Can’t wait to dine there again.❤️

    My friend ordered a well done filet with shrimp. When he cut into the steak blood ran out. Although they offered to cook it some more by then the plate full of blood just kind of ruined the whole meal. Told them we would cook the steak at home. Made the reservation a week ahead for my birthday but got seated near the bar. Really liked it the first time but not again tonight.

    Our first (of many) visits to this incredible Seafood restaurant. My husband and I had a wonderful experience. The oysters were fresh, and the lobster & red snapper were cooked perfectly. The salad, side dishes and dessert were outstanding. To find a top quality seafood restaurant far away from a coast line is not something you can easily find, and yet here it is, in Gatlinburg! My only regret was not being able to finish all of my meal! The music wasn’t too loud; just loud enough to drown out the other tables conversations. All of the staff were friendly, attentive, and respectful. This establishment deserves every bit of the praise that it receives. Definitely make a reservation. Better to have one then wait to see if you can get a table.

    Busy night (Valentine’s Day) for the restaurant. We made reservation a week or so ahead of our visit. Even with a line of “walk-up” parties, we were greeted and seated immediately upon arrival. We were hosting long time friends that we hadn’t seen in a while for a week long visit to Gatlinburg. Settled in nicely and ordered cocktails and studied the menu. We all ordered something different—from shrimp to special preparations of Mahi-Mahi. Everything was delicious! Janice and I always make at least one night at Chesapeake’s when in town. Always a highlight!

    Lucy was great! Shrimp on all plates were overcooked and rubbery. Oyster sampler and bread was great. Fried oysters were over breaded and not good. We have had them lightly breaded before, which was great. Baked potato came out cold, not hot. This was an unexpected sub par dinner. Did I say Lucy was great!

    Really sweet waiter but seemed too busy to check on us. He was really nice but we waited for like 20 minutes for a refill and 40 minutes just for a cold appetizer. He was definitely more interested in catering to the other tables. We’re super patient so we waited but definitely expect much better service from an expensive restaurant.
