Stephanie 79 must not have eaten at the same Cheerokee Steak House the we and many of our friends have eaten at. I would think Stephanie 79 is not a very nice person. I have eaten in every major city in the U.S and Europe. No, it is not The Stock Yard, Ruth's Chris, Jimmy Kelly's, or Mortons. It is close by, the food is above the price you pay for it, and the service is always fast and friendly. Did Stephanie try to walk out with Paying...??

If you are looking for a steakhouse off the beaten path with great atmosphere, beautiful surroundings, country hospitality and a consistently decent steak, Cherokee is the place for you. If you are looking for a spectacular culinary experience, then you will be disappointed. I grew up right down the road from Cherokee. When I was growing up, I remember a meal at Cherokee was a special and rare treat. If you are a boater, then going to have a steak dinner by boat is guaranteed to make for a memorable evening.\nYou will certainly not get the quality of steak that you will get at somewhere like Ruth Chris or Fleming's, but Cherokee certainly has earned it's place among the Nashville area steakhouses because of its other attributes it has to offer.

My husband and I went to Cherokee Steak house & Marina last night and we thought it was excellent. We had heard good and bad reviews. My husband is a culinary student and we know good food.\r\n\r\nI ordered fried mushrooms and we each had a salad with our jumbo shrimp and baked potato. They had wonderful homemade yeast rolls.\r\n\r\nThe waitress was so friendly and the atmosphere down by the boat dock is great. Take bread with you to feed the ducks. I think you should try it. You wont be disappointed!

Pros: Great Food

Cons: Long Wait

My family and I dined at Cherokee Steak House last weekend, and the food was absolutely horrible. There were 11 of us, and noone enjoyed their meal. Every single steak was not properly cooked, and we had to wait 90 minutes for a table. Honestly, for almost $300 you can get such a better meal. In the day, this was the only decent steakhouse in the area, but those days are gone. I wish they could get their quality back, but time after time we seem to be dissapointed. The restaurant is close by, and we always try to give it another shot, but we will not anymore. Also, there was a waitress that was very rude and you could tell she had no class the way she was speaking to a friend in the dining area. Do not waste your money.

Pros: ok view, egg rolls when they used to have them

Cons: bathrooms are awful, long wait, horrible food for the price, nasty food.

I dined at Cherokee Steak House last week, and was very pleased with the wait for we got right in. The service at Cherokee was remarkable, but the food was horrible! I ordered the pasta dish, and the noodles were obviously not fresh as well as the chicken was dry and tough. My husband always orders the filet along with lobster, but lobster was rubbery and steak was fatty. The couple with us had o.k. food, but said they will not be back, for the choices in the area are far better quality food for the price. Onion rings are out of this world, but that's about it.

My family and I recently ate dinner at Cherokee Steak House. The wait was almost 2 hours, and by the time we had sit down to order, the waitress proceeded to tell us they were out of 5 different items on the menu we always get. We overlooked the problem and ordered something else. The food wasn't warm when it arrived and steaks were overcooked. The waitress was very nice and discounted the bill even though we ate most of it. Service is excellent but they need to step it up when it comes to food quality for the price.

It has the best atmosphere!!! It is right on the lake, so bring your bread they have lots of hungry ducks. It is B.Y.O.B. That makes it great as well because you can have your favorite drink.

Pros: Food is wonderful

Cons: parking is tricky

Great place to dine! Only 30 minutes from Nashville Airport! Although the food and atmosphere IS worth the wait, do go early to ensure you do get seated quickly. Conveniently located off Hwy 109 on Old Hickory Lake serving quality food since 1958. They also have a child's menu. Open year round 4pm to 10pm Tuesday - Sunday's - Closed Monday's. Parking is limited.

Good salad and bread, okay steak, EXTREMELY long wait for a meal that was not worth the cost. I thought that the BYOB aspect was not good for a steakhouse. Good location but not worth waiting 2 hours for a table.

Pros: good salad, good bread

Cons: wait is too long

The steaks are the best for the price. The view of Old Hickory Lake adds to the ambience. Drinks could not be more reasonable as it is BYOB. The sticky buns are out of this world. If you are a beefeater or like a great Country Ham Steak it is the place to go in the country.

This is absolutely my favorite place to eat in Nashville. The setting on the lake is incredible and the steaks are out of this world. I especially like the fact that there's none of the pretense that you get at some of the other Steakhouses like Ruths Kris or Morton's. It's just plain and simple great eating. My friends and I make it a point to go at least once a month. I recommend the filet and lobster. You can't go wrong.

Pros: Relaxed Setting, Great Food, Excellent Service

Cons: Sometimes a Wait

Several of us recently visited Cherokee restuarant for the 1st time via boats on Old Hickory lake. There was a 1 hour/45 minute wait for dine-in, therefore, we decided to place to-go orders and eat on the patio. We experienced very rude to-go service. However, the prices and atmosphere were good. The food was good, except all of our steaks were overdone. We will try it once more because of the boating/laking appeal. Hopefully the food and service for dine-in will be much better.
