    We celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary today there with friends. The server was Shannon, and she did a fabulous job♡ Our order was perfect, and she took care of refills and was prompt and tentative to all of our needs and questions. Our food was prepared as requested and very delicious. This is my favorite Steakhouse and my go-to when special occasions arise or if in the mood for a delicious steak. Note that everyone here is always friendly and accommodating. We always feel right at home and welcomed every time we visit. Definitely recommend & we will always return.

    First time there!! Emma was fabulous. So VERY much enjoyed the sharp cheddar cheese and crackers before the meal. Hubby got prime rib and it was a very generous portion. He had a salad. Seriously -- the salad - appearance wise, it was nothing special but was good. I got the rib eye with HAND CUT FRIES (YES!! FABULOUS). Ate half and got another meal the next night. Split a brownie with ice cream for dessert. NO cherry or whipped cream to top it with. Bill came to just under $95. Think that was fair and was well worth the money. Will be back for more.

    Ye Olde Steak House has been our go-to restaurant for years when we are celebrating...Valentine's Day, birthdays, Mother's Day, or just whenever we are craving a great prime rib. I rarely stray from ordering my favorite meal rib, woodshed potatoes, and broccoli casserole. It's my family's favorite restaurant in Knoxville. The kids' menu is great as well. Always good service and great quality food. If you save room for any of their homemade desserts, the Italian cream cake is served warm and melt in your mouth delicious.

    Steak! Yeah, this is the place to be. Although they mixed up our orders: my prime rib was supposed to be medium rare and my husband’s porterhouse was supposed to be rare. Still, very good steak. The other dishes were not impressive. The house salad and appetizer platter were lack-lustre, except for the fried mushrooms. I don’t understand the allure of the bland cheese spread with the crackers; they’re complimentary though. The broccoli casserole was bland and lumpy, and the broccoli was overcooked. The key lime pie was good. I like the restaurant interior; log cabin, southern style. But I couldn’t get over the fact that for a pricey place, some plates and “glasses” are plastic and dining table was cramped. Overall dining experience in Ye Olde Steak House, it was kinda disappointing. I had high expectations since this restaurant is considered a legend and “must-visit” in Knoxville and also pricey. But the only reason to go here is their steak. I can go to other cheaper, nice steak places where a lot of food selections are better than Ye Olde Steak House. I hope Ye Olde’s food quality and dining setup improve.

    Where’s my teeshirt…???? I ordered a 20oz prime rib which I typically do because I have a healthy appetite. I laughed when they delivered my plate because I thought it was a joke. It dwarfed every other 20oz ribeye I’ve ever seen. I assumed I would get a free teeshirt if I could eat it in less than an hour. Yea it was that big. The accompanying pictures don’t do it justice. I didn’t finish it but it was very flavorful and well cooked. My 18 yo son appreciated the portion I didn’t eat. Their wedge salad was just as impressive. I thought it was a giant slice of cake when they delivered it. The wedge was completely covered in blue cheese dressing topped off with a more than generous amount of fresh blue cheese crumbles. Sorry but I failed to get a pic of the salad.
