Excellent experience

My sister and I were exploring the Arts and Crafts trail in Gatlinburg over several days, and we were asked on more than one occasion, "Have you had lunch yet? No? Then you MUST go to the Wild Plum Tea Room!" Goodness, those helpful artisans were absolutely right. The food was fantastic and... read more

Yummy and flavorful chunk chicken salad. Eclectic mismatched plates and fun seating areas. Have eaten a WPTR for several years now and have had good meals each time.

The Wild Plum Tea Room was definitely worth the drive after our Grotto Falls hike! We did not have reservations but were seated quickly on a outside patio " if we weren't concerned about the bees" We were in fact visited by one yellow jacket! The chicken salad with fruit and warm scone was delightful! The chicken salad had large... More

The service and food at Wild Plum were great. I ordered the Lobster Pie and was surprised with how much lobster was in it. All of the ladies were very helpful and knew the menu.

Wonderful place to visit. Very good food and all from scratch. I like to take friends and family here when they come to Gatlinburg to visit us. Love the food and yes, even the men can come here and not feel out of place.

We have been coming here for 8 years and it's always consistently wonderful. The tea is always good and The food is continuously delicious.The menu changes with the seasons, keeping a few staples. Highly recommend the cheese plate. Have a dessert you won't be disappointed.

I found out about this place by doing a search for 'vegan Gatlinburg'. It's a little off the beaten path in Gatlinburg but that was OK and I wanted to explore the Arts Community so it worked out well. It's a lovely tearoom with indoor, screened porch, and outdoor seating options. Initially, I thought I wouldn't be able to eat... More

We tried the Wild Plum Tea Room and we won't be returning. Somewhere I had seen that it was rated a 2015 Trip Advisor Award for Excellence, so I thought we couldn't go wrong. We did. The facility is very cramped, and we were actually seated in a corner that literally was sloping so bad I thought the floor might... More

I was surprised by the lack of lunch options in Gatlinburg, unless all you want is fried or BBQ. Thanks to Tripadvisor, I found the Wild Plum. It is far off the strip, thank goodness, but easy to find on the Arts and Craft trail. We were seated quickly, though it was a weekday, and our service was excellent throughout.... More
