Fleming's Steakhouse - Knoxville Ratings and Reviews
I have never been to a prime steakhouse ...
I have never been to a prime steakhouse before where the cuts of meat were so thin. My husband got the 16 oz bone-in rib-eye and I got the Wagyu strip both, maybe, an inch thick. While the flavor of both were delightful, mine was so tough that I had to chew forever and finally gave up on two bites that I had to discretely put back on my plate. We did not complain as they were so nice and attentive and didn't want to make a big deal out of it since we had a $100 gift card (but still came out of pocket $138). The macaroni and cheese and asparagus were both delicious, thankfully. I feel confident that had we complained, they would have taken care of us...the fact that we needed to was shocking as I've never had to while dining at any other prime steak house...EVER
My wife and I visited this establishment ...
My wife and I visited this establishment last Saturday evening. We had eaten here years ago (disappointed then) but I was able to grab a decent hour reservation last minute for a Saturday night so I thought we'd try it again.
The same end result as our last visit (less the valet parking). The food was average at best but the prices are still way too high.
No strangers to the prices that come with true fine dining. We have enjoyed some of the finest sole proprietor establishments in cities like New Orleans, Chicago & Miami. Being native to Knoxville we have dined at Connors , Copper Cellar, Regas (when it was open) and others.
Bottom line, Flemings (even if you can get past the name) is hard to swallow. The Truffled lobster was cold & rubbery as if it had been lying around for an hour or so waiting for someone to order.
My medium cooked Filet was difficult to cut and "chewy". Come on guys, these are basic dishes that should impress "special occasion" diners at the very least. My bill for two was $210 after a well deserved 20% gratuity. Our Waiter is the only thing we were entertained and impressed with.
Fellow Knoxvillians I recommend #1 Ruth's Chris downtown on the river. Choose from any of their "Ruth's Classic" menu selections and dine for Two with sincerely appetizing food for $100 or less. Recommendation #2 Connors Steakhouse. Enjoy the ambiance of fine dining with slightly above casual pricing. My family of four enjoyed an evening here for $157 out the door including deserts.
My advice to Flemings is this. Higher prices do not equal better Food. Fine dining is an experience but the meal quality should always comes first.
Great Service and atmosphere, easy to get a reservation. Overpriced for Average food...

This was my first trip to Fleming's in Knoxville; I had eaten at Fleming's in Nashville a few years ago and enjoyed it very much. I was anxious to visit the Knox location and had a friend in town staying in the Turkey Creek area, so it seemed like the right time. I loved the atmosphere, ambiance and decor. The menu variety was excellent and food preparation was also. It is a bit pricey, but special occasions call for a little extra in my book , and this was "right down my alley!"

We had family from out of town and we all liked steaks. My steak was so highly seasoned that my stomach was upset. My husband ordered the NY Strip and it had a big piece of grissel down the middle. It had a lot of fat also.
We really want this restaurant to be good but it is not consistent. Our waiter Bryan was excellent and my Caesar salad was excellent. Our two steaks were terrible.

I am from Los Angeles so I have high expectations for steakhouses and even though I never visited a Flemings in California (there's a lot of steakhouse competition there) I do find this Flemings to have the best food in Knoxville by a long shot. The unfortunate thing about this Flemings is the last few times I've been there, the service was far less than outstanding. Most recently I waited 30 minutes for my cocktail and ended up moving to the bar to attempt faster service to no avail. I actually had to ask the bartender if I could order food now. I am good customer- my people order filets, appetizers, desserts and several drinks- so when I'm paying $150-200 per person for dinner I expect amazing customer service every single time. Flemings in Knoxville- you are not worth my money anymore.

We have been dinning at Flemings for 10 years now - it is our "Go To" place for special occasions or to just have a romantic dinner. They also run specials and this makes those meals extra special as the prices and value are terrific! I would highly recommend Flemings over any other big name steak house, any day.

We enjoyed a wonderful anniversary dinner at Fleming's. We each ordered the prix fixe summer special which included an 8 oz filet mignon and 2 Alaskan crab legs. With the delicious salad, sides and dessert we had a very sumptuous, delicious meal. We even took one of the desserts home! It was overall a memorable experience.

We have eaten at Fleming's several times, usually for special occasions, e.g. anniversaries or birthdays. We have never had a bad meal there, the service is always excellent, and the ambience of the restaurant is quiet and peaceful. Even though it is not the least expensive restaurant in the area, the price is well worth it.

Flemings is one of our go to places for special dinners. Part of it is the restaurant but a large part of it is that we get to sit in our favorite booth , served by Heather our favorite server. She is remarkable and makes the entire dining experience a pleasure.
This time around I was running a few minutes late. Call the restaurant to let them know and the response was no problem. Your table is ready and waiting when you get here. Got a love that!

Brian Richardson was amazing as our server. He was engaging, attentive to detail and in tune with our needs throughout the dining experience. This is an upscale dining experience and you get what you pay for as the service and food were incredibly wonderful!
Comfortable place for good dinner
Managers on duty are alert to make sure the patrons are happy & enjoying their meals. Waiters are attentive without being intrusive. Food is also good. Place is always busy which speaks of its value in an enjoyable evening.
Great birthday dinner
We celebrated my husband's birthday and had a great meal and great service. My husband's fillet was outstanding. I had the crab legs which were wonderful and the same price of a steak. They were sliced so easy to eat. I don't find crab legs on a menu that often.
Pretty Much What You Would Expect - A Great Choice
Just a great, right down the middle fine dining experience. Incredible steaks, fairly low key and traditional vibe, not clubby at all, SPECTACULAR service. A place you can bring anyone to. We were there on Mother's Day, so the atmosphere might be a little more romantic on other evenings. We plan to find out.
Took a party of seven for Mothers Day / Birthday. Overall we loved the place. Very well appointed with great service and food. I expected the bill to be high, it is a very upscale place after all, but I believe it could be just a little overpriced. Even so, I would go back and would recommend to a friend. Thanks for a wonderful evening!
Once again, we enjoyed fabulous food and service. Everyone from the front door hostess to the conclusion of our meal was perfect. My Newport Filet was perfect...seasoned and accompanied with Fleming's Potato. Also, we enjoyed the New York Strip steak with the Parsley Potatoes. Very good. To conclude our meal, Creme Brulee and Cheesecake with Blueberry topping. A nice evening and Fleming's always is our go to Steakhouse in Knoxville.
Excellent food, great service, nonrushed venue.
We arrived at Flemings about 10 minutes prior to reservation, and our table was ready.
We asked the hostess if we could go the to bar first, and she said absolutely, and we will hold your table. 30 minutes later we started the great Fleming dinner experience. The waiter was friendly, witty, and knowledgeable. He assisted with our wine choice, and answered the many questions we had about the menu. The meal was excellent. The steak my wife and I chose to split was cooked to perfection, and for two hours with a grand dessert finale we were lost in time, and a great atmosphere. We definitely will return on our next visit to Knoxville. This is no ordinary restaurant, it is a great one.
Flemings provides an exquisite dining experience.
Flemings does not disappoint when it comes to a top notch dining experience. We decided we wanted an extra nice family dinner and it was delivered. When you go, make sure you can enjoy what they have to offer as it was truly a treat for the palate. The seafood we had provided such a fresh flavor that even my picky kids were blown away. The steaks were as superb as you would expect for the price you pay. And for desert, they had a caramel pie that I thought my wife might leave me for she was gushing about it so much.
The service was superb and friendly. While very upscale, they also did not come across as snobbish or anything but helpful.
Price is what you expect for a restaurant of this level, expensive, but worth it. I can say that a pleasant surprise was the Prime Rib Dinner. A great value considering you get a salad, side, and dessert with it which normally are a la carts charges.
My only complaint is that Flemings has joined the growing scourge of restaurants that have decided regular iced tea isn't good enough and need to infuse it with mango which tastes like potpourri. This is the South, iced tea should stand alone, just like a well cooked steak.
But I'll still go again, because I can get iced tea anywhere, but steak like this is special.

Another fantastic meal at Flemings. The service was exceptional as always. There is nothing to say but I look forward to my next visit. Filet was perfect, asparagus delicious and crab was melt in your mouth as well. Thank you for being delicious and consistent as always.
A rare disappointment
Went for valentines dinner. Had reserved our fave table with the best server ever. Didn't get the table. By 7:30 dinner they were out of bread and the vegetable we ordered. What we got was the usual great quality...still love this place. Just no so much this time.
