My husband and I ate here on my 30th birthday for lunch. The food was fantastic and the service was even better. The staff was very friendly and one of the chefs brought out a dessert with a candle in it and said our gift is that we won't sing to you, but make a wish because all wishes come... More

My wife and son and I stopped in for lunch and tea. The Tea Room is in a beautiful setting in the midst of an artists' colony. The food was very very nice.

Every time I visit the Smoky Mountains, a visit is not complete without visiting the Wild Plum Tea Room. The food and the tea is delicious and the atmosphere is wonderful.

On the advise of our B&B hosts, we had lunch at the Wild Plum Tea Room. Its rustic setting and relatively small dining areas added to the ambiance. There menu and specials were absolutely world-class. If you're into cooking, we strongly recommend buying their cookbook. (HINT: the easily made Lime Ice Cream will be an instant hit.) The food and... More

This should be number one in both me and my wife's opinion. The staff was extremely accommodating to our diet. I called ahead to make a reservation and help them be prepared for our dietary needs, seeing how they change their menu every couple of days to keep it fresh. The plum tea was divine and my wife said it... More

A friend of mine suggested we eat her for lunch. It was so good! Had the lobster pot pie & it had plenty of pieces of real lobster meat in it. Had the iced wild plum tea...fantastic! It is on the pricey side but well worth it! Portion sizes were just right.

Upon reading tripadvisor reviews, we decided to try Wild Plum. As advid tea room fanatics, our expectaions were very high. They exceeded our expectations. We were able to take our pooch, who was greeted with a bowl of water. Be advised that dogs are only allowed on the outside porch. We arrived at 11:30 and by noon, the place was... More

This charming place deserves its place as one of the best restaurants in the entire Gatlinburg area. My girlfriend and I stopped for a late lunch after enjoying some of the many art studios and stores around the Gatlinburg Arts and Crafts Loop, and we were so impressed with the unique building, the fantastic ambience, the friendliness of the staff...

Quaint, quaint setting tucked roadside on the Buckhorn Road spur of the Arts and Crafts Community loop. Clear mountain water trickled and burbled just on the edge of the covered patio on a sunny spring afternoon. The food, for a tea room, was hearty. The tasty chicken salad had sizable chunks of chicken. The red pepper corn chowder served with... More

The many times we have visited Gatlinburg, I have never heard of this restaurant, but thanks to Tripadvisor and the reviews we made our first visit. The atmosphere, the food and the service was great. It is located away from the hustle bustle of downtown Gatlinburg in a nice quiet setting and a wonderful break from the crowds and traffic....
