Excellent steak and friendly service

Surprisingly good, for Gatlinburg that has a scourge of pancake and waffle restaurants. The waitstaff are really attentive and friendly and the view from the creek facing tables is lovely. I had the French onion soup (quite nice but perhaps a bit too much cheese) and the 10oz ribeye (perfectly... read more

We have eaten here many times and this visit was exactly as expected. Arrived at 5 on Tuesday evening and there was already a line. The best salad bar anywhere, period. My wife had the fried trout which was a huge portion and cooked perfectly. I had the ribeye cut at the table, 14 oz. Great food. Excellent service. Reasonable... More

Great location, food and service! It was quite a treat to have my New York strip steak cut in front of us before it was cooked! It was one of the best steaks I've ever had. The salad bar selection is also excellent.

My fiancée and I were craving steak and decided to try out The Peddler after reading reviews online. They don't take reservations, but you can call the day you will be dining and request call ahead seating. If you want a more romantic setting, I recommend dining upstairs with a view of the river. The downstairs tables may have a... More

My boyfriend and I had dinner here last night and it was probably the best steak we have ever had. It was pretty expensive $88 for the two of us, it really was a lot of food though...wine, bread, salad bar, steak and sides and then cheese cake for dessert. We had a table by the windows that over looked... More

The best salad bar I have ever ate. Everything was so fresh. The desert was definitely a share desert. Me and my... More
