After reading some reviews, we almost cancelled our plans to take two couples there for our Thursday dinner of February 2, 2012. I even sent a copy to them of some reviews expressing our concerns. No matter what experiences others have

I have had some of the best steak dinners at Ye Olde Steak House, and I've had close to some of the worst there. I don't understand how unbelievably inconstant they are. I used to go ahead and chance having a good experience, but now I

Son.. We ate here Friday June 18th. I thought I was going to an up scale restaurant, but I soon found out different. First off, I ordered coke to drink and was brought out a 12oz can of coke and a cup of ice. We all had our laughs until I realized they charged $2.19 for that can. The bread had been microwaved and the sides weren't anything special. I will say the steak I had was pretty good even if everything else sucked. It was around 7pm we were there and it wasn't busy at all. At least half of the tables were empty. I can see why now.

Cons: Everything besides the meat

This place is awesome! Cooks are great, food is delicious, and I have never had any complaints. This place is awesome for a nice family dinner outing or celebrating special occasions.

This place is the ultimate hole-in-the-wall place. It doesn't look like much on the outside. Parking is a chore. Once you get inside, though, the effort pays off.

The steaks are great. Thick. I love the way mine was seasoned. The thing I remember most is the homemade cheese spread. It's served in little crocks. You get all the cheese you want plus Club crackers. That's basically a meal in and of itself. If you visit Knoxville and you haven't hit Ye Olde, you're crazy.

Remember to plan ahead. The place doesn't seat a huge number of people. If you're trying to roll in there on a Friday night at 6 o'clock, you'd better be ready to wait ... a while.

Ye Olde is family owned and operated. They make their patrons feel like family as well. The food is wonderful and the log cabin atmosphere is laid back and casual. You don't have to get dressed up to get great food! However, do get there early so you won't have to wait for a table. And even if you do have to wait for a few minutes, it's well worth it! (Order the shrimp or filet with the wood shed potatoes- YUM!!)

Growing up in Knoxville, I remember my parents talking about Ye Olde Steak House as if it were the Holy Grail of eateries, and if you saved your money long enough, you could go there and buy the best steak on earth. Well, I grew up to find that it is not the Holy Grail, nor is it the most expensive restaurant in East Tennessee. But Ye Olde does serve an incredible steak. That's why we still drive way out Chapman Highway and fight for a parking spot on the side of a mountain (The nearest neighborhood is aptly called "Little Switzerland"). Then we stand outside with the rest of the horde waiting for a seat at one of the simple wooden tables in the rustic log building. Eventually a friendly but multitasking server will greet us, and we'll eat crackers and cheese while we wait for the Real Deal. Simple salad and basic side dishes may be designed to keep from upstaging the reason we are here: the steak. Please don't cook it past medium - this one is too good to charcoal! In all, the small inconveniences and the less-than-creative menu are part of the charm, and as any Indiana Jones fan can tell you, the Holy Grail was the wooden cup, anyway. Maybe my parents were right, after all.
