Great place for any occasion. The crab cakes are a good add on! Try to get there before the croissants are gone.

Not the best seafood. I do live in Maryland so I do get a lot of really good seafood. The service was really good but I found the place a bit dreary.

I was SO impressed by Chesapeake's! I had a fabulous server named Victoria. She was knowledgeable, friendly and had GREAT recommendations! At Victoria's recommendation, I tried the Spinach Maria - it's similar to a spinach dip in taste and texture. The lobster was sweet, buttery,...More

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.

Great Question and I wish I could answer it. I was with my 16 year old son, so I can't say for sure. That said, they had everything else. So I would think so. Picture a Cheesecake Factory but dedicated to seafood, Maryland... More
