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.

I had always heard about the Peddler and after many trips to Gatlinburg, decided to go this time with my two daughters. We did the call ahead seating and we arrived were told ok, we've got you down. What the heck does that mean? We sat down and waited for just about 15 minutes or so, not too bad. The... More

Yet another restaurant whose quality has changed over the years while prices have increased to the point that it is no longer a good value. Have dined here a number of times over the years but will not return. Salad bar is still fresh and good but steaks are very disappointing. We found it hard to believe that the steak... More

Was not impressed. Called ahead seating still made us wait 30 mins. Salad bar was ok. Steaks were good but not worth the price. Very compact seating. Won't be back.

I ordered a combo plate of a New York strip, medium done, with a marinated chicken breast. While the chicken was moist and very good, the steak was excellent with a bold beefy flavor. Dinner rolls were served warm and were very good. The dinner included the salad bar, which had a nice variety of options. A creekside table added... More
