This is a great place for a special occasion or casual meal. The service is friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is fun with several fish tanks and coastal decor. Best part is the delicious food! Everything is fresh and cooked perfectly. Will definitely return!

A perfect meal in a perfect restaurant with a perfect waitress, Samantha was wonderful. Our first time but certainly not our last. We had the bay chowder, broiled seafood platter and strawberry short cake. It would be impossible to find anything better. Thanks Leland & Linda .

We came here on a last minute decision. But it was delicious! We had clams and crab claws for starters and fillet with shrimp and scallops for out entrees. They were out of the duck that I had originally ordered but I was pleased with my other option. We had a nice dinner, even a little later than usual. I... More

I love this place because they are always consistent and have the freshest food around. It's a great place to take clients for lunch or dinner as they can accommodate a group.

Chesapeakes is the best place in Knoxville for fresh seafood. The crab bisque is the best you can find - even when I traveled all over Maine I didn't find any to compare. My friends meet at least once a week for happy hour. It's our local get together to find out what's going on in K-town.

When my great niece was born, this is where the extended family went to celebrate -- great food, great service, for us, not an "every day" but a "special" place.
