    Everything was wonderful except the Divers Scallops we ordered that were supposed to be pan seared were mushy. Tasted okay but texture was off a bit. Everything else was excellent. Server Clay did a terrific job. Very efficient and great personality!

    The raw oysters (Blue Point and York) were fabulous. Crab bisque was great as well. Restaurant obliged a substitution on the broiled seafood platter - swapped in fried oysters - which were also amazing. Maple bourbon sours were great. One of my favorite places to eat!! Also kudos to Clay who took great care of us and made wonderful recommendations.

    I really had high hopes for this restaurant as it is supposed to be a really nice seafood specialty restaurant. The service was fine but not intentionally friendly. The food was average in quality and taste, but they do have seafood that you won't find in other restaurants in Knoxville, like swordfish, which I would give a 7 here. The reason we won't be going back is because they allow dogs INSIDE the restaurant. There was a dog, a very fluffy hairy breed, five feet away from our table standing and shaking it's body every few minutes throughout our meal. We had already order when the party with the pet arrived, so we decided to stay. I understand some places are allowing pets on the patio, but inside is just unsanitary. IF they claim it to be a support animal, I would say that the humans with them are sufficient support so the pet can remain at home.

    We went for our wedding anniversary and they seemed genuinely complimentary. We had the seafood tower, the wedge salad, and the crab bisque. All were delicious! Be sure to save room for dessert. Long story short, I would recommend and will go again

    Valentines dinner disappoints! Steak was burned on one side, literally charred and uneatable. Stone Crab was not fresh and slimy inside. I have have stone crab in Florida many times, but this Knoxville experience was very poor in comparison. Seafood not as fresh as I though at Chesapeake's. We were seated at a table in the bar area, not in main dining room even though we had reservation for dining room. Table was for 6, but only 2 of us. So the setting was not as intimate as desired. Wine by the glass choices were low quality and needs improvement. Will not be back, but I hope for other Knoxville customer, it will improve.

    Every time I eat at Chesapeake's I have to stop and ask myself, am I still in Knoxville or have I teleported to the coast. Chesapeake's is as close to coastal seafood restaurants as you can get.

    My favorite restaurant! I love the fine seafood (especially the spiced blue crab claws appetizer) at Chesapeakes’s. The noise level was slightly greater than usual, and my party was seated about 20 minutes later than my reservation, but that is to be expected on Valentine’s Day. Both the food and service were excellent, and we thoroughly enjoyed the expanded holiday menue. Pricey, but worth it!

    Food is excellent. Just had to wait over 1/2 hr. to get seated, even with reservations. And once seated, took a while to get food, but worth the wait (granted it was the night before Valentines, so crowd was expected). They even gave us free dessert due to the long wait for the food, as it was longer than those around us.

    Great tasting food! Service is good, could have been better as we had to initially ask for bread as others who sat after us got their breads from the start. Crab dip was great, but they need to add more bread for dipping to the dip plate.
