Steaks are tender, juicy anddelicious

The ambiance is wonderful: Gatlinburg wood cabin. The service is impeccable: absolutely polite, quick & responsive. The steaks sleeper decry tender my only complaint is that the steaks donor arrive on a five hundred degree plate. Prices are acceptable for Gatlinburg, I.e. A little high, but inline... read more

I can't say enough about our meal here! Both of our steaks were delicious and cooked exactly the way we wanted them! I had a sirloin and my husband had a filet. We got a baked potato as a side and unlimited salad bar that were both great too! For dessert we had Kahlua creme brulee which was almost as... More

Amazing salad bar. Very attentive wait staff. Prices are higher than the other area restaurants but you get what you paid for and more. Catfish was out of this world, so was the beef. Would actually go there again next time I was in the area.

I admit it has been a few years since I've eaten at The Peddler. We went on Saturday & were seated in the first round of tables when they began seating for dinner @ 4:30pm. This was previously a NICE place for dinner. Now it has, like all of Gatlinburg, fallen to the tourist level. The place was full of... More

First and last time to eat here. So excited about getting to eat here. I had to send my filet back twice cause it was cooked to death both times. I finally told them not to bring me another one. I have never been more disappointed in a restaurant that's suppose to be top notch. Never again.

We have eaten at the Peddler for over 30 years, but never had the experience like tonight! When we first began eating with the Pedder 30 years ago, every meal was a wonderful dining experience! Over the years this has dropped to most dining experiences were good. A few were just ok, but tonight was horrible. I ordered salmon cooked... More

This has become an annual event for our family the week after Christmas. We celebrate a couple of birthdays - usually a party of 15 or so. You will have to read my review exactly a year ago for comparison. Lo and behold we had the same waitress. Not sure if she remembers or not, but a hunk like me... More

They season it well and cook it perfectly. I also enjoyed the sweet potato casserole. I would definitely come back. If you want to drink bring your ID they will ask for it no matter how old you look lol.
