    This place does not disappoint. The food was outstanding. This is one of the only nice dinner places in all of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Went for our anniversary and loved it. Had the oyster appetizer special. I had to halibut special and my husband had the surf and turf with the crab leg. It was outstanding I highly recommend this place.

    Wow! This place was a perfect spot to enjoy an amazing dinner with Paige, our server, to guide us through a the menu! We wanted a relaxing dinner after hiking all day! The drinks were awesome and the dinner from the Chesapeake Oysters to the iceberg wedge and crab stuffed grouper were perfect! I wasn’t blown away by the check and the service was fantastic! I’d recommend it to anyone looking for an upscale dinner while in Gatlinburg! Thank you for a wonderful experience!

    Excellent food and service. Fresh seafood and oysters, which are hard to come by in the mountains. Prices are commensurate with the quality of food. Dress is very varied from suits and dresses to jeans. Mostly low noise with the exception of a occasional baby or unruly child. Highly recommended.

    We chose Chesapeake's for our anniversary dinner after reading other reviews and we are so happy that we did! From the moment we walked through the door we were impressed with the interiors, the views, and the staff. We had a table by the river and our server was absolutely phenomenal. When my husband asked him what some of his favorites were on the menu, he went into great detail and described not only his favorites, but a couple items on the menu he didn't recommend and we appreciated his honesty in doing that. I chose one of the specials - the fresh wolfish - which I had never heard of before but have already had cravings for again! It was outstanding, and served with an Asian soy glaze, and the fish was slightly sweet and firm in texture. My husband chose the Chesapeake platter that had shrimp, scallops, and crabcakes. I tasted some of each and all were fantastic. For sides we had the macaroni and cheese and spinach, and of the two the spinach was far superior. For desert, which was complimentary for our anniversary, we chose the bread pudding. By this time, I was too full to enjoy it and can't say whether it was good or not to be honest. My husband however, finished every bite so it must have been! All the stars for Chesapeake's and our top-notch server!

    We ordered the halibut special which was really good! We ordered the blue crab special and there might have been 2 tablespoons of meat on two crabs. I would not order that again. The snapper was excellent too! And of course the Delaware pie was amazing!!!

    The seafood was fresh and delicious! The atmosphere was perfect for us (quiet) with large windows to watch the geese in the West Prong of the Little Pigeon River. The service was great and took great care of me with my oyster allergy. Special thanks to Robbie! All around wonderful experience! Will definitely return when in Gatlinburg!

    We decided to go to Chesapeake based on a recommendation from a local. Upon walking in the ambience was very nice we were taken to our seat which was in the back and felt a bit claustrophobic. We requested to change our seats which they obliged and put us in a booth which was acceptable. I ordered the mahi which they did not have and offered to substitute it for Salmon. Food quality was overall very good and I would rate this restaurant above average but certainly not the highest standard to warrant five stars. If ordering lobster- avoid adding A lobster onto your meal just get the feast.
