Our food was good, but not the absolute best I've ever had. I grew up hearing about this restaurant that has been around for ages, so I think it's more of an experience than going for outstanding food. Don't get me wrong-- I walked away full and happy and very pleased with our service and the food. I will go... More

My husband selected Ye Olde Steak House for his birthday! No one complained! We arrived on a Monday around 5:30 and had no problem being seated. Surprised to see so many folks there, till I learned about their $10 Burger night! although we all opted for Steak/Prime Rib - the burgers looked delicious. I've normally gotten various potatoes, but opted... More

I took my partner and my daughter and her husband here for dinner. Everyone said they have the best steaks. I had the grilled chicken (totally boring) and they had ribeye steaks. Tough, unseasoned and thinly sliced. We have eaten steak all over the world so it is beyond us why this place gets any more than a fair rating,... More

This restaurant is our go-to for anniversaries and birthdays. We never need to look at a menu because we always get the same thing - Filet and Shrimp. Try the homemade Blue Cheese dressing - it is to die for. The steaks are always seasoned and cooked perfectly and the shrimp is served with clarified butter. I get the sauted... More

Place is rather old and drinks come in the can, but the 20 oz. new york strip was amazing. Only care about getting a good steak and not worried about anything else, this is the place.

This place is literally in the gap between the rocks of where they cut the road in the mountain. I drove right past it because i was driving at of the speed of traffic and had to turn around. This is a mom and pop steak house and was worth the drive to get here. They also have a Bring... More

This was our first visit. We asked Facebook friends for the best steak in Knoxville. Ye Olde Steak House received the most votes. We got an appetizer sampler, 10oz Ribeye steak, "woodshed potatoes" and broccoli casserole. First impressions: It's super easy to miss as it's small and sits right on the road with limited signage. The parking is all kinds... More

On the road visiting my son and his new family and they brought me here for steak. The building is partially a log cabin with cool decorations inside. They serve you cheese to spread on your crackers, cool change from other places. I had the ribeye with green beans and baked sweet potato. The ribeye was more medium than I... More

This has been a local fixture in the Knoxville community for decades and the history here is priceless. You can tell that everyone on the staff has been there forever. If you are a local, you should eat here at least once to experience it. Now onto the actual review, I’ve been here a few times, and it’s always okay.... More
