Great Evening!

Food was above average and the service was great. Wait was 20 minutes so we sat in the bar. View of river and quiet.

A must while visiting Gatlinburg! We have vacationed in Gatlinburg on July 4th for almost 20 years and always eat at the Peddler. It's worth the wait from the salad bar to dessert!

One of the nicest salad bars I have seen in a long time - worth the effort you have to go through to make a reservation. (maybe my experience was worse since it was a holiday weekend). Prime rib was also great, along with the service. Would go back for a nice night on the town.

From the time we sat down to the time we left there is only one word to describe it - EXCELLENT! Huge salad bar and the steak very tender and juicy and seasoned to perfection. No steak sauce needed.

What a great food experience, (get a table AWAY from crying little ones) for the price I am not sure why you would bring a toddler. No reservations, get in line early, when you are seated the "peddler" rolls steaks on a cart and you simply saw what size a cut you want. Cooked to perfection, you could cut through... More

We were referred to this restaurant by others, We looked at the price online and thought it was pricey, but we decided to try it. We were glad we did. The food, the service, and atmosphere were the best we experience in Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge. The dinner starts off with a salad bar. the filet minion was one of the best... More

Sits on the little pigeon river and is a great place for a romantic evening. Service was better than anywhere I have ever been and the steak was exceptional!
