Having been to the Peddler in Gatlinburg before, this visit was a bit disappointing. My salmon was not seasoned at all and the stuffed baked potato was not hot. Salad bar was very good though.

We had a wonderful meal here on Saturday evening this weekend. The food was amazing. We were at a table overlooking the river and it was lighted so very beautiful at night. The "meat peddler" was a very friendly young man and cut our steaks right beside our table. They were cooked to perfection. From start to finish it was... More

As someone who travels year round and goes out to eat 7 days a week 2x a day we have seen our share of good and bad restaurants. This by far is one of the worst we have experienced. If the meal had been 60 bucks or so for two people probably wouldn't have minded, however for a nearly 200... More

We called ahead and hit a seating time of 6-6:30pm. We arrived at 6pm and were seated right away. We got a nice table next to the river with a great view. The salad bar was huge, lots of variety and fresh. Husband and I got prime rib which was good but not as good as I remembered. Perhaps we... More

Peddler's Steakhouse did not disappoint! I read a TripAdvisor review of this restaurant prior to my summer vacation last year. The reviewer was so enthusiastic about this location that I had to try it. It was by far the most enjoyable meal of our entire trip. Our only regret was that we didn't include another meal there on our agenda.... More

We visit every time we go to pigeon forge. This is best salad bar around along with the steak. You cant find a better place to go.

Located toward national park end of River Road. Awesome salad bar. Food is a bit pricey but worth it. If lucky, you may get table next to window overlooking the mountain stream. Good choice of appetizers. Can be extremely busy in season.

Service was really good but all-in-all this place is only average, one step above the Western Steak House. Emphasis was to get you in fast, get you fed fast and free the table for the next paying customer. Steak was good but not great. My wife's filet was hot (well done), mine (medium rare) not so hot. Tells me they... More

This was our second time visiting the Peddler Steakhouse and the food was simply to "die for." We had the prime rib and it was juicy and tender. Absolutely the best piece steak I have every had. We will definitely be on our next trip to the Smoky Mountains.

Everything we had was perfect. The steaks were cooked as we ordered and the salad bar was more than you could want. The service was excellent as well as friendly. The only complaint I have is the price which is what would keep me from returning very often. This is a great place to splurge once in a while.
