East Tennessee is not the easiest place to find quality seafood, but Chesapeake’s pipes it in fresh from all corners of the continent. Whether you prefer light and buttery or bracing and briny, the menu has a crustacean, fish, or mollusk to suit your palate. You can’t go wrong with the cold appetizer platter -- chilled shrimp, smoked salmon, lump blue crab cocktail, spiced crab fingers, and oysters on the half shell -- or with the live Maine lobster, which might be, at the moment, milling about in the tank near your table.
