Our Story

Once upon a time, the Appalachian Mountains were home to the Cherokee. Today, our great Smoky Mountains, a subrange of the Appalachian Mountains, may be home to people of all backgrounds, but we still pay special homage to the tribes who came before us. We honor their lasting presence by sticking true to our roots. From our regionally-inspired menu to our friendly service, we want everyone who walks through our doors to feel like part of our tribe.
Cherokee Grill was designed with two things in mind: comfort and class

The stone exterior and granite-accented interior provide a high-end ambiance, while the soft lighting and warmth from the centrally-located fireplace soothes guests during their meal. Free, private parking, an oversized bar, and a prime view of the Gatlinburg Strip make Cherokee Grill the perfect spot for any occasion. Conveniently located in Calhounā€™s Village across from the Ober entrance, the upscale establishment has become a favorite for countless locals and visitors alike. With its mountain lodge atmosphere and abundance of Cherokee Indian artifacts, patrons can expect a truly authentic, Southern experience.

Serving up mouthwatering steaks, fresh seafood, and rotisserie-style staples in the heart of Gatlinburg, Cherokee Grill has made a name for itself as the greatest steakhouse in the area.

Our Family Mission

Serve Simple Foods

Whatever the specific restaurant concept, the ability to create menu items in a consistently excellent manner is directly related to ease of production and simplicity of presentation. Consistency at a high level is always more important than innovation.

Use The Finest Quality Ingredients

There is no more essential factor in a successful menu program than the quality of ingredients used in food preparation. Starting with the best is the only possible way to end up with the best.

Keep The Environment Clean, Organized and In Proper Working Order

Concern for the guest means being attentive to all environmental details from maintenance of the physical plant to the personal grooming of each individual employee. Cleanliness and order are the keys to building guest confidence in the establishment.

Make Memorable Moments

It is the perfecting of all the little details in a restaurant that makes the guest’s dining experience a memorable one. With every action, the appropriate question is: does this act show a commitment to excellence and respect for the patronage of the guest?

Work As a Team

Ease, efficiency and enjoyment of the restaurant experience, for both employees and guests, is directly related to the level of respect, support and cooperation among the staff. Any restaurant guest is everybody’s guest; any restaurant responsibility is everybody’s responsibility.
