    Kinda has that cracker barrel vibe. Food was delicious. We got the 12oz NY Sirloin Strip & 2 12oz Slow Roasted Prime Rib each got a side salad & baked potato. Service was good, Sweet tea was definitely sweet. Recommend if you're in the area. They have plenty of parking in the back of the restaurant.

    Wanted a nice steak dinner and this place did not disappoint. Our server, Josh, did a great job and the food was perfect. We both ordered filet. Mine was medium and my wife's was well done...quite a challenge to get it right. Both came out perfect. We also had the wedge salad and broccoli and mushrooms. Loved the beer in the frozen mug! Overall very pleased and would not hesitate to return. Parking is a little challenging...there is parking behind the restaurant but it's a little bit of an uphill walk to get to your car.

    Not my kind of steakhouse :( It’s a cute place with a long history but my issue is the way they serve beef. As you can see in the pictures, the filet wasn’t really a filet and it wasn’t medium as I requested. In fact, one part of it was medium temp and the other was way too rare for me. I didn’t finish it. Another issue is the flavor: they use a marinade that they buy in the store and that’s how they serve all their steaks. That flavor on the beef that I tasted was so artificial and full of preservatives that I could tell it’d make me sick if I finished my steak. I’d rather have a pure flavor on the beef. Also, I know we’re in the south but not everything has to be deep fried in the appetizers, and I’m fairly convinced the cheese sticks were frozen from the store; it had a different breading than other items on the sample platter. The salad was plain and I truly don’t get the point of the salt crackers and cheese spread. I tried it but again, very artificial flavor. Altogether for this we paid $100 for 2 people and I find it rather annoying. The quality of food isn’t worth the price, although our waitress did a very good job. I won’t ever be going back again.

    As a chef I am always looking for a great place to eat, read the reviews on this steakhouse and it proved everything that everyone had written!! The steak was flavourful; it was beautiful to look at, the portions generous. If you are ever in Knoxville in Knoxville, this is a must stop Place!

    It has been at least 10 years since I had been to Ye Olde so I was looking forward to my visit The wait time was short and the service was very good. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. My wife and I both ordered the filet. She got the baked potato and I got the woodshed potatoes. The steaks were cooked as we ordered them. To be clear the steaks were good. My wife and I have traveled around the Knoxville area checking out steakhouses over the past 2 years. We have tried dozens of filets, many at far cheaper prices than Ye Olde (and some much more expensive) I would rate Ye Olde steaks as about average. I think my expectations were very high and while w e enjoyed our experience we were just a bit disappointed overall.
