We wanted to try The Peddler after reading the wonderful reviews, but we were not impressed. The salad bar was nice and very large with a lot of options. The service was outstanding, but the grilled chicken I had, had a lot of fat on it. I really did not enjoy it. My husband and niece had the steak. It... More

If you like fine dining then you MUST try the Peddler. Located off the main drag in Gatlinburg on a beautiful mountain stream. The salad bar is unreal and the steak is cut to your specs right at your table. We have been eating here for over 30 years and it always good. There is usually a wait but it... More

Business was brisk the Sunday before Christmas 2014. My spouse and I sat at a table in the bar area. Service was efficient and polite. The wine selection was very limited. I am not a fan of buffet dining, but prepare yourself for a salad bar if you want a salad. The salad bar did have lots of offerings though,... More

Great steak house we've been to many times throughout the years. There is always a very long wait so make sure you call ahead. They start taking call ahead seating reservations about an hour before they open for dinner at 5 pm and it can be very hard to get through. Make sure you request a table by the river.... More

Ate here with a group of friends. The restaurant is an anchor point for Gatlinburg. One of the very few that have stood the test of time and still maintained super high quality. You wouldn't expect a salad bar in a fine dining establishment but it is by far the best salad bar I have ever visited. Only the best... More

The Peddler reminds me of a steakhouse in our town that was big in the 1970's. the name was The Fogcutter. It had pewter plates, a great salad bar and good steaks. My wife had a filet and i had the grilled trout and both were very good! The salad bar is very large with a lot of items on... More

My wife and I visited Gatlinburg in September for our yearly trip. We've always seen The Peddler Steakhouse and heard good things, but never took the chance to visit. We stayed right next door this trip and decided to take the short walk over and try it out. We were not disappointed. We got seated in the rear of the... More

Visiting Gatlinburg on a winter vacation. Had dinner at the peddler steakhouse. Prime rib was very good. Salad bar is large and has a lot of variety. Had cheesecake with caramel sauce for dessert. It was sooooo good. Will definitely revisit on next trip.
