Couldn't ask for a better or more romantic place for an anniversary dinner! From the salad bar to the perfectly prepared ribeye. Favorite place to eat while in Gatlinburg!

I rarely write bad reviews but thought the truth should be told. After a 45 minute wait for a highly anticipated good steak my family was very disappointed. This place is nothing but smoking mirrors with what appears and is priced as a "high-end" steakhouse is nothing more than a low quality steakhouse with the only highlight being the salad... More

The salad bar is the best you can find. It's inclued with all meals, or you can get it all you can eat, for a meal. If we get a salad and steak, we are always full before the entree. It's an impressive restaurant that you will definitely want to call ahead for seating in.

I don't understand Peddler's being #15 on this list. Coming from a large city with great local restaurants, Peddlers is a refreshing stop. In a city full of Cracker Barrels, Waffle houses and restaurants that serve a lot of low quality food in large quantities we love going to Peddlers. It's not a "county" cooking kind of place. It's a... More

I am never disappointed when I visit here. The steaks are hand cut at your table and cooked to perfection. The service is way above average. On our most recent visit it was for a birthday. We had a river view table, candle on our table and a dessert to die for. You couldn't ask for anything better. I try... More

I usually try to eat at the Peddler when visiting Gatlinburg. The hand cut steaks are cooked exactly right. My wife usually has the trout/filet combination and both are excellent. This restaurant also features an excellent salad bar which includes smoked oysters that I really enjoy. The restaurant is a little on the expensive side but well worth it.

No idea how the food was. Seated reasonably quickly, got water and rolls in a reasonable time. Then the waitress disappeared and never came back. After 10/15 minutes. we decided to leave. Was a shame, we ate there several years ago and food and service were good. Place wasn't very busy, so no excuse for such poor service.

They don't take bookings like all restaurants in the area. Average wait is about 30-45 min to be seated, although it's often shorter than they tell you. Beauty is that once you're seated you can go to the salad bar and pick up all you want - it has a large selection of cold vegetables and a few other things,... More
