Nice steakhouse away from the crowds

Gatlinburg has numerous restaurants on the main drag and they have one thing in common -- crowds. The Peddler is short walk from the main street (and has free on-premises parking). Wifey and I enjoyed a nice meal without an hour wait (we were seating within five minutes). The restaurant... read more

It was overpriced "good" food. By "good", i mean by the bite. The value was poor. The "meat peddler" was a gimick - the cuts weren't even the cuts actually delivered. Really, i would have considered it "great" at 1/2 the price.

After trying on numerous occasions to reach someone at the Peddler and even writing letters about the horrible experience from a year ago, I have never gotten a response!!! Just talked to my sister-in-law after going there for a conference and she said it was worse than when we went the first time! I still can't believe I have never... More

The atmosphere is wonderful and romantic. We had a table with a view of the river and it was just wonderful. The service is exceptional and the food is 5 star. Prices are reasonable and we'll worth it. After a long drive this was the perfect place to spend our first night in Gatlinburg. I would definitely return. The stuffed... More

We dined here after renewing our vows. They don't take reservations so we called at 4:00 and got call ahead seating. My husband asked for a nice table for the occasion and they sat us at a table along the window with a view of the stream. They also lit a candle for us. The food was outstanding and the... More

Manager treated my wife as if she did did not matter to their business when she advised him of parking situation near their restaurant that will affect their customers. We have been loyal customers for over thirty years. Enough said. It was our 49th anniversary to top it off.

When my family goes to Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge I know TWO things... We are eating at The Peddler and buying candy! We did the call ahead seating at 4pm for a seating at 5pm. We were seated promptly with a window view of the large creek. We are a group of 4.and we all couldn't wait to hit the... More

We stumbled onto this little gem by accident. We stayed next door and the better half recommended it. The starter is a trip to the salad bar. Before you get, "that's so 80s" it's an awesome display of greens with oodles of choices that all looked killer fresh. The wine selection was good enough. The martinis were excellent and you...

My husband and I have been to The Peddler for our Valentine's dinner for several years now and the salad bar is always fresh. The steaks are great and they come around and let you see them. Ask for a window seat and you are sure to see some critter roaming around by the river.

This is a very nice steak house we were greated immediately and sat as soon as we went in. I do recommend you call ahead for seating. All of the staff were excellent we never ran out drinks. Excellent salad bar. We had the crab and shrimp stuffed mushrooms and prime rib all were great. Make sure you save room... More
