Great Steak!

Spent a weekend in Gatlinburg and we had dinner at The Peddler Steakhouse. We were fortunate enough to be seated with a great window view of the river running by just outside. While the view was wonderful, the steaks were extremely tasty. We like our steak medium rare and these 10 ounce beauties... read more

I like this restaurant have been here many times before the atmosphere is very nice especially by the river downstairs against the glass by the river. The steaks are always great but I have to say the vegetable melody was very lack luster and very thrown together not impressed at all this visit if I could have attached a photo... More

We used to visit The Peddler annually for our anniversary, but got away from it as the kids got older. Last week, we visited for our 15th anniversary, and the food was better than ever. We were highly pleased, both with the salad bar and the steaks (New York Strips cut by the peddler at our table). A visit for... More

The staff was exceptional in willing to help. I spoke with someone via email prior to the visit and they gave instructions prior to my desired day. Everything went smoothly...we were seated at our reservation time ..and right by the window per my req with a candle on table! They did everything I wanted! Food was amazing...with the exception of... More

We always visit the Peddler. It was good this time, but I can't say great. The steaks were tasty but so thin, you could almost read through them.

We came here for a special occasion and have eaten here in the past. Unfortunately I will no longer be recommending this place. Pros: large salad bar (cost ~12 if you just get salad); has kids menu; bread comes with meal; nice location on river; free parking; call ahead seating; has dessert menu Cons: 1. meals are very expensive--ranging from...

This was the best restaurant I have ever eaten at. The food was delicious! Everything was hot and fresh. The salad bar which comes with your entree was huge. The best thing about this restaurant was the service. We got there right when they opened at 5pm on Friday, March 13th. There was a huge line but they were very... More

We had the ribeye and stuffed shrimp combination. The steaks were perfectly cooked and the shrimp was succulent with the most divine sauce. Most amazing was the sweet potato casserole. The salad bar was fresh and offered a wide array of vegetables and dressings. Dinner rolls were fresh and yummy. Our server Raven was most attentive and our water glasses... More
