Reviews for Cherokee Marina
Dinner for four., 2014-06-01
Captain: , Franklin ky (40)

We used the courtesy dock near the fuel island the attendant was very nice and being our first time directed us to restaurant and bathrooms. Being early around 4pm we got a seat inside right away the a/c felt great from being on the boat most of the day. The staff we're very happy folks and answered all menu questions. My crew all got some form of steak because that's cherokee`s thing. Very good tender seasoned steak another table ordered steak for two and could have fed an army from its portions. Overall rating 5 for 5 will definitely go back.

Captain: , Punta Gorda, Florida (330)

Cherokee is well known for its specials (steak & ribs) by all the locals.
Thursday night is the petit fillet special. Get there early as there is usually a wait. Great family restaurant.
Does not serve alcohol but does allow wine with corkage.

Captain: , Nashville, TN (10)

Entered 11-20-2010 with 4 ft draft. Very skinny water between entrance buoys but did not hit bottom or stir mud. Docked on right side of fuel dock with about 6-7 ft depth. Stay close to docks on approach. Great dinner at Cherokee Steakhouse.
