We stopped for dinner after The UT / Kentucky football game. Everything was excellent. We beat the crowd and were seated immediately. Our food came quickly and was cooked perfectly. I always get the steak kabob. It is enough for 2 meals. My husband got the filet and son in law, the ribeye. Both were tender and delicious. My son... More

Always our special go to Resturant. The same taste and quality for decades. Our personal favorites are the ribeye, the strip and the charcoaled shrimp. Service has always been outstanding. If the Vols are playing in Knoxville forget it, LOL We had dinner there on our first date and our 24 th anniversary dinner there this week. You can't go... More

This is just a good old fashioned country steakhouse. Appetizers are fried and straight out of the freezer. Steaks are cut thin and not seasoned at all (but I like it that way!). BYOB but they do serve beer. I will return. They are busy especially when the Vols are playing.

Server was not friendly, cheese and packs of crackers and 2 cans of soda for 2.50. I've lived here all my life and heard it was so great. What a let down. The server plunked the can down on the table. The steaks had absolutely no seasoning. Forgot our salad til after our food was half gone and my husband... More

Do yourself a favor, get the best steak you will ever have here! Cooked to perfection and melts in your mouth and the flavor is a real treat for your taste buds. The look and feel of Ye Olde Steak House is almost as good as the steak, very romantic atmosphere and the staff makes you feel like you are... More

if you are in the Knoxville area and are hungry for steak, you have to visit Ye Olde Steak House. The steaks are cooked to perfection according to your specifications. They are juicy and thick. They are so big that my husband and I can order just one and share it. Definitely visit this restaurant when you are in town.

I've heard this was an amazing steak house. I think it's way over rated. For their prices the facility is dingy and run down. The wait staff is "provencial." Their portions are large, much larger than a reasonable diner would consume. They offer a $3 split plate charge which is reasonable and reduces the serving size down to what most... More

A casual lodge atmosphere. Great food. Has a little of everything. Has a bar, but allows you to bring your own wine. You can make reservations only for parties with 6 or more people, so there can be a line on busy times.

The steak I had was outstanding. I went with the bone in ribeye and it was cooked to perfection. The baked potato I had was pretty good as well. This place is very homey. If you want a high end clubby type steakhouse, this isn't the place to go. The service was okay but not mind blowing. The desserts are... More
