Having not been to Ye Olde in awhile, we met some friends there for a birthday celebration. It was a cold evening and the small waiting area was very crowded with little in the way of seat or heat. The hostess was working off the top of an old chest freezer, guess they can't afford a stand? After a long,... More

We've had the opportunity to visit this steakhouse many times over the past 40 years with family and friends and never been disappointed. The meat is of excellent quality,tender,cooked to order and delicious. I enjoy the woodshed potatoes and the coconut cake is memorable.I will be returning soon

My sister and I went for lunch/dinner around 4:30 on Friday. I've driven by Ye Olde Steak House for many years but, have never gone. It was wonderful. Our waitress, Shannon, a 22 year employee was friendly, fun, and very helpful. We were drawn in by the early bird specials 4-6, Monday through Thursday but, they weren't available and times... More

local friends showed us the place - brought our own wine and had an excellent time Liked the different fried starters - among them Alligator, the steak was excellent, the side-dishes at best average - watery, not hot, but all in all a nice experience

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
