This is a great place for a business lunch. It is an attractive and relatively quiet environment. The service was very attentive and responsive. We all had the crab cakes, which were great.

My wife and I had another fantastic meal at Chesapeak's. As always, she had fish and I had the lobster. Both were fantastic. The best part is that the waiter does the hard work for you with the lobster. He cracks the shell and pulls out all the meat. He does it with such skill that the meat is still very hot, (most servers cannot accomplish this and it gets cold before you get to eat it). The atmosphere is great with all of the fish tanks around the place. I have traveled all over the country and their seafood is as good as anywhere. I have had better bisque in the Northeast, but you cannot complain about their product. Keep up the good work!

If you want a nice place to sit, eat and enjoy a meal with quiet conversation this is a good place for that. Parking is limited but there are a few parking garages near by. Food is excellent! Oysters on the half-shell are Devine ( says my husband and daughter who share them). One of Knoxville’s finest restaurants.

We visit this restaurant every time we visit Knoxville. It is very nice inside and out. The patio is more intimate than inside seating. Food is good especially if you are a seafood fan. The service is fantastic.
