Cherokee Grill Gatlinburg
Prosperity in Gatlinburg
The Cherokee Grill Gatlinburg is in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains. It's located in Calhoun's Village, along with a number of other restaurants on the main parkway. The restaurant is accessible from the majority of the local hotel and the parking accessible. I would suggest you to call ahead for seating as this is a very popular restaurant.
The Cherokee Grill Gatlinburg has a comfortable and pleasant upscale feel, but it's not too dressy either. They have a lovely fireplace which of course gives off a great woodsy aroma and the seating offers some great views of Gatlinburg. The decor is somewhat of a mountain contemporary atmosphere if there is such a thing.
The lighting is pleasantly low and relaxing, especially after a long day of hiking through miles of gift shops and attractions. We were seated in a corner booth next to a window. We had a private kind of spot but still could see all the action both inside and out. There are plenty of good appetizers to choose from. We tried the fried calamari with mustard sauce and the charbroiled shrimp.
The house salad is very crispy and nicely chilled and both the honey mustard and honey lime vinaigrette dressings are excellent. There are also lettuce wedge salads and a Caesar salad as well as a few other options. Soup is always available as an option to the salad. Be sure to try the crab bisque soup. It is especially rich and creamy with plenty of crab.
I had originally heard that they had one specific entrée that put the Cherokee Grill Gatlinburg on the map and has kept them there all these years. So I always order the still ever popular “prosperity steak” for dinner. The steak is a marinated 10 oz sirloin with an absolutely delicious worcestershire butter on top.
Believe me when I say you will not need any steak sauce and you might not even need a sharp knife. It was both tender and juicy with great flavor and was a very good cut of sirloin. My wife decided on the fresh herb crusted trout, which she enjoyed and really liked the baked macaroni and spinach with cheese. And to finish up, I would recommended the chocolate amaretto cheesecake and coffee for a great finish to a fine evening.
You aren't likely to find quiet, isolated dining at the Cherokee Grill Gatlinburg, but that's true of any place in Gatlinburg - there are just too many people there. However, for a busy restaurant, they keep up the quality of service. And even though it was crowded, we never felt rushed to leave our table. The bar also gets a little crowded, especially right before dinner, so it took us a little while to get our drinks. We visit the Cherokee Grill Gatlinburg every time we are in Gatlinburg. They're friendly, the food is great and the service very adequate. They keep things moving even as busy as they seem to be. Prices aren't rock bottom, but at the same time reasonably priced for the area.
